9780806958675: The Five-Elements Wellness Plan: A Chinese System for Perfect Health

In traditional Chinese medicine, oranges are known to weaken your immune system, bananas cause fatigue, and yogurt doesn't help weight loss. The ancient Five Element Diet (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) describes the foods and preparation methods best suited to each element, the parts of your body most affected, and the healing forces unleashed with each dish. Your eating habits will change simply because you know more about the effects of foods on long life, love, sexual capacity, and prosperity.In traditional Chinese medicine, oranges are known to weaken your immune system, bananas cause fatigue, and yogurt doesn't help weight loss.
