Abstract:
"Drawing from the ancient wisdom of the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Robin Ray Green, L.Ac., MTCM, offers simple solutions for creating a natural healing program that is as unique as your child. Questionnaires and quizzes help you gain an understanding of your child's 5-Element type--whether it's Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal or Water--to allow you to diagnose imbalances within the body that create health issues. Once you've gained a solid understanding of the 5 Elements and how health conditions are affected by elemental imbalances, nutrition, and lifestyle, you'll learn simple techniques--such as acupressure, massage, and meditation--that will help your child achieve vibrant health. Ultimately, empowered with this knowledge and a new, holistic perspective on health, you'll be able to augment Western treatments with time-tested natural solutions to help your child, and your whole family, heal naturally"-- Provided by publisher.
