Health in Theory and Practice is a book to read now and reference later. It lays out the rationale for self-maintenance and personal growth and development through diet, exercise, and breathing exercises/qigong. It offers an energetic understanding of health and disease and compares it to pharmaceutical-driven, Western-medicine symptom suppression. Neither is right or wrong; it is more a case of suitability and appropriateness. The book also advocates the wisdom of choosing the correct options at the correct time. If and when disease does occur it provides solutions via dietary advice, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupressure/massage.

A guide to living life in a healthy way and looking after oneself, this features the the Four Pillars of total health: diet, sensible exercise, breathing, and treatment. The first four chapters lay down the foundations for understanding health through holistic energetic medicine as a different approach to orthodox pharmaceutical driven disease intervention. The next three chapters are the practical treatment options: herbal medicine, homeopathy, massage/acupressure. Chapter eight is a repertory where a symptom or disease can be looked up and answers found using one or all of the different treatments as well as dietary and life style advice. The final chapter provides a sample day in the life.

Health in Theory and Practice is not only a guide to maintaining health it is also designed to be an essential reference when disease occurs.
