This work explicates how to achieve the core value system at the heart of Nourishing Destiny in clinical practice. All treatment paradigms are fully elaborated to allow immediate integration into the clinic. I cover in detail the points on the 12 main channels cross referencing every character in every main and alternate point name to Weiger’s etymological text and to Mathews’ Chinese-English dictionary. I also fully elaborate the Worsley five-element tradition with a fresh perspective for the twenty first century. A chapter on Clearing Blocks with Chinese Herbs contains a beautifully written piece by Thea Elijah on treating possession, exit/entry blocks, and clearing the sensory orifices with herbal medicine. A 60 page chapter discusses the in depth use of the five element points on each channel with an eye toward engendering the integral consciousness that lies at the heart of Chinese medicine. In all, the book is approximately 850 pages and, like Nourishing Destiny, is designed and built to the highest standard.
