This book is the holistic health road map for the interested, aware person in the twenty-first century.

Following this path will allow you to take dynamic responsibility for your total wellness. Health maintenance, rapid disease recovery, personal development, leading to maximising lifespan - and of course, enjoyment. A journey of a thousand miles starts with one small step, so what are you waiting for?

Beginning with a gentle account of health philosophy and the failures of the western medical paradigm, Steve Kippax discusses nutrition, exercise and positive thinking and their practical application to health. However, it is when he moves on to Traditional Chinese Medicine that Stephen really lets us see the decades of hardwon clinical experience and the book illuminates parts of our nature, both physical and non physical, of which many of us are quite unaware. The practical implications of herbal medicine and homeopathy are well covered and the listing of common ailments shows the various appropriate complementary treatments. As Kippax says, integrated medicine is the synthesis of the best of complementary and orthodox medicine.

'Not only a practical text but a road map to a saner world, this book shows us how to take control in our lives.' - Dr Eric Asher, MBBS, FRACGH, FFHom.

'I am delighted to read my former student Steve Kippax's book. He studied Chinese medicine with me over twenty years ago, worked really hard, and has become an excellent Chinese Medicine practitioner in the West. His talent and deep understanding about health can be seen from this book.' - Prof Song Xuan Ke, Principal, Asante Academy of Chinese Medicine, London.

'I received some extremely effective herbal treatment from Steve which helped to restore my energy levels after an exhausting tour and enabled me to shake off a stomach bug. I always found him to be professional, approachable, helpful, and wise.' - Brett Anderson, lead singer with Suede.
