From the Back Cover:

In the House of the Moon interweaves traditional values with insights from ancient and contemporary thinkers. Acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine practitioner Jason Elias joins with Katherine Ketcham to help women access the feminine (yin) energy that has been overlooked by conventional medical science. Examining the major phases of a woman's life from puberty through menopause and into "the wisdom gathering years", Ellas and Ketcham offer gentle, natural remedies that can be used to complement conventional treatments to promote health, emotional well-being, and spiritual enrichment. In this life-affirming book, you will discover the traditional Chinese interpretations of PMS, fibroids, and menstrual irregularities; time-honored acupuncture and herbal treatments for menopausal symptoms, pregnancy problems, and postpartum care; life-enhancing exercises for older women; and many other therapies. Combining practical information with a wealth of myths, parables, and metaphors from many wisdom traditions, In the House of the Moon will help you reconnect with your own potential for healing and wholeness.

From Publishers Weekly:

While practicing psychotherapy in New York City, Elias became interested in the effectiveness of the mind and the body working in tandem to heal. Having already studied Gestalt therapy at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, Calif., he took off on a tour of the world to study Eastern medical traditions. His practice as reconfigured by these experiences focuses on traditional Chinese medicine, and particularly on the "Five Transforming Powers" of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Each is described at length, with associated physical and mental types and the problems attendant to an excess or deficiency of the various humors. Elias illustrates how acupuncture, herbs, diet and, importantly, understanding underlying emotional issues can correct imbalances, release vital energy and remedy problems with menopause, osteoporosis, and PMS. This is not really for a DIY-er unless you're comfortable with self-administered acupuncture. The aim is more inspirational. Annoyingly, though, inspirational zeal sometimes obscures fact, as when a story about the Sumerian goddess Inanna's trip to the netherworld aimed at "reclaiming the feminine spirit of healing" neatly sidesteps a crucial player?Inanna's older sister Ereshkigal, Destroyer of Life.
