 Spirit of the Organs: (Spirit of the Organs)

Now Available

Spirit of the Organs Contains 12 stories each depict a different organ of the body and illustrate how they are traditionally understood in Chinese Medicine. The author shows that an appreciation of what the Chinese call the 'spirit of the organs' leads to more effective treatments of both common and unusual conditions. In the Chinese medicine tradition, understanding and resonating with the spirit of the organs leads to better diagnosis and more effective, powerful treatment. Behind most symptoms lies a disturbance of spirit, and the more alert a practitioner to the nature of such a disturbance the more effective the treatment is likely to be.

John Hamwee explores the spirit of each organ not in analytical, rational, summarising language but through life stories that express the nature and tendencies of the organ at a deep level. Through the stories of 12 people that embody the unique spirit of each organ, he shows the physical, emotional and spiritual nature of each, and their related tendencies and possibilities for improved wellbeing. Written to give Chinese medicine practitioners new ways to reflect on each organ in the most complete way, this book is also a lighthearted yet profound introduction to the heart of the Chinese medical tradition.
