Combines the best that Eastern and Western medicine can offer in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of heart disease and hypertension.

Over a decade has passed since Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.) and Energy Medicine (Donna Eden) seminal books shed light on taking more control of person health through lifestyle changes. Now, Drs. Kurosu and Kuhn offer a step-by-step guide to optimal heart health and care. True Wellness for Your Heart combines the best that Eastern and Western medicine have to offer in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of heart disease and hypertension. By blending modern research with ancient practices, this book will help readers along their journey toward better cardiovascular health and overall well-being.

The authors have helped thousands of people through the use of surgery, pharmaceuticals, acupuncture, herbs, qigong, tai chi, meditation, and life-style counseling. They explain how Western medicine has substantiated a long-held understanding of the heart held by Eastern medicine – that heart health is significantly impacted by sleep, emotions, movement, food, and social support. The authors discuss how sleep, exercise, nutritious food, stress management, acupuncture, and qigong favorably impact the cardiovascular system. These modalities restore balance in the nerves, hormones, and neurotransmitters that influence the heart and blood vessels.

  • Drs. Kuhn and Kurosu strongly recommend a collaborative approach, encouraging readers to engage with their Western healthcare providers so that serious conditions can be addressed safely.
  • The authors share ideas about how the reader can create a multidisciplinary care team, involving practitioners of both Eastern and Western healing systems.
  • The science behind meditation, acupuncture, and qigong are explained.
  • Readers are offered recommendations of proven Eastern and Western therapeutic interventions that will calm the mind, decrease stress, improve sleep and nutrition, and strengthen the heart.
  • True Wellness for Your Heart includes a step-by-step guide and qigong exercises designed to promote overall cardiovascular health.

The authors recognize that cardiovascular disease is complex and requires a multifaceted approach for successful treatment. By blending the ancient wisdom of Eastern Medicine with cutting-edge Western discoveries, True Wellness for Your Heart will help readers achieve optimal heart health, whether through prevention or treatment of this condition.

Recenzijas

A book about blending Eastern and Western medicine for heart health. In the newest book in their series, medical doctors Kuhn and Kurosu (True Wellness: The Mind, 2019, etc.), who now practice holistic healing, examine cardiac health from an integrative perspective, combining different approaches to health care. As in their previous installments, the authors blend divergent tenets of Eastern and Western medicine-Kurosu trained in Canada and the United States and Kuhn, in China-into a cohesive wellness approach. They note some surprising parallels and highlight beneficial practices from each type of medicine and walk readers through ways to make them work together. This book specifically focuses on prevention and treatment of cardiac illnesses, combining traditional medicine with practices involving acupuncture, herbs, yoga, and qi gong and rounding the regime out with tips on exercise, nutrition, meditation, and sleep. Their goal is educational, so the opening chapters aim to give readers a grounding in some of the science, history, and philosophy behind various treatments. They also include an in-depth examination of common cardiovascular problems, including hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart attacks, arrhythmias, and valve problems. Not all sections will apply to all readers, obviously, so some sections may be challenging to wade through. For instance, the book extensively details how blood vessels function, which sometimes requires the use of scientific language that casual readers may find difficult to grasp. However, the book also dispenses a good dose of general information about everyday lifestyle choices that are easy for anyone to comprehend and implement, and the authors liven up the concepts with examples from their own lives and practices. "Homework," including mental exercises as well as instructive diagrams and illustrations, will help readers customize their own wellness plans. The authors support their advice with exhaustive citations, which makes the book feel more comprehensive than other, similar works. A detailed and appealing work on wellness. -KIRKUS Reviews "Two healing traditions - East and West - are merged into this beautiful book about healing the heart. Clear, straight forward and well referenced, I recommend it to all who want to optimize their heart health." -Wayne Jonas, MD, Author, How Healing Works "With a focus on the prevention of cardiovascular disease, Doctors Catherine Kurosu and Aihan Kuhn bravely explore how Western and Eastern medicine have coalesced to give rise to True Wellness. In their innovative book, the authors weave two complementary threads that together are shaping the wellness revolution." -Rosa N. Schnyer, DAOM, IFMCP, L.Ac., Seeds of Wellness, doctor of Chinese medicine, licensed acupuncturist "Provides a compelling argument against the pervasive notion that Eastern and Western disciplines are mutually exclusive philosophies, and provides a step-by-step evidence-based guide on the integration of these philosophies for optimal health and wellness. I particularly appreciated the actionable, practical tips to help put knowledge into practice. As a primary care physician, I highly recommend this book to colleagues and patients alike." -Kimberly Rogers, MD, Diplomat American Board of Lifestyle Medicine "By reading the book, you are going to understand why the combination of Western and Eastern medicine can promote health and how this combination can benefit your wellbeing." -Sherry Zhou, MD, Endocrinologist "Read this book BEFORE you manifest heart problems and incorporate the suggested therapeutic modalities in your life to PREVENT heart issues." -Katsuya Andrew Iizuka, MD, Family Medicine Hawai'i Pacific Health
