Chinese medicine and Ayurveda are two of the oldest healing systems in use today. Each is a perfect art in itself and has contributed greatly to the health and well-being of millions of people around the world. Drawing on their common roots and spiritual principles, Bridgette Shea, L.Ac., MAcOM, shows how these two practices blend seamlessly and how the individual strengths of each tradition harmonize to provide a practical foundation for prevention, wellness, detoxification, and treatment.

The author explains in detail the basic principles of Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, giving the reader an understanding of both disciplines. He explores common concepts such as qi and prana, meridians and nadis, and energy centers and chakras. It explores the strengths of both practices, such as the clinical efficacy of the use of diagnosis and acupuncture in Chinese medicine to relieve pain, increase fertility and reduce stress, and the nutritional, detoxification and spiritual guidance of Ayurveda, including Ayurveda’s branch of detoxification known as Panchakarma. It goes beyond theory and into practical application, exploring the elements known as the Five Phases and Panchamahabhutas and how they affect our health. It offers self-assessment tools, including a language diagnostic guide and a mental, emotional and physical health questionnaire. It offers treatment and prevention strategies that draw on both disciplines and encourages the reader to apply the two systems in an integrated way in daily life or clinical practice. It describes in detail breathing exercises, diet plans, herbal recommendations and detoxification instructions, including safe and gentle household cleaning methods based on the holistic synergy between Ayurveda and Chinese medicine.

Using case studies to demonstrate the intertwining of these approaches, Shea offers a comprehensive guide to self-healing of body, mind, and spirit and a resource for practitioners to answer complex questions about both healing traditions.
