The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine

 

The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine

 

The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine is the result of years of research and study by a world renowned Shaolin Grandmaster, Sifu Wong Kiew Kit, who has an excellent track record in curing many so-called “incurable diseases” like cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, sexual inadequacy, kidney failure, rheumatism and asthma using chi kung therapy.

The aim of this exciting book is to introduce the wonderful and unique concept behind Chinese medicine. Sifu Wong’s command of both the Chinese and English languages has made this book possible as meanings are often lost or misinterpreted during translation.

Thus this book will be indispensable to everyone with an interest in Chinese medicine and to those who find that Western medicine does not have all the answers after all.

The book includes:

  • The history, development and the main features of Chinese medicine.
  • Strategies and tactics when diagnosing and treating patients.
  • How modern societies, including Western medical doctors and research scientists, can benefit from a deeper and holistic understanding of Chinese medicine.
  • Case studies.

About the author:

Wong Kiew Kit, popularly known as Sifu Wong, is the fourth generation successor of Venerable Jiang Nan from the famous Shaolin Monastery in China and Grandmaster of Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Kungfu and Chi Kung. He received the “Chi Kung Master of the Year” Award during the Second World Congress on Chi Kung held in San Francisco in 1997. He has practiced and taught the Shaolin arts for more than 3 decades and has more than 60,000 students all over the world.

Since 1987, Sifu Wong has spent more time teaching Chi Kung than Kungfu, because he feels that while Kungfu serves as an interesting hobby, Chi Kung serves an urgent public need, particularly in overcoming degenerative and psychiatric illnesses.

Sifu Wong is one of the few masters who have generously introduced the once secretive Shaolin Chi Kung to the public, and has helped many people to obtain relief or overcome so-called “incurable” diseases like hypertension, asthma, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, migraine, gastritis, gall stones, kidney failure, depression, anxiety and even cancer.

He stresses the Shaolin philosophy of sharing goodness with all humanity, and is now dedicated to spreading the wonders and benefits of the Shaolin arts to people all over the world irrespective of race, culture and religion.

Sifu Wong is also an internationally acclaimed author of books on the Shaolin arts and Buddhism.

Book review:

Yin and yang do not refer to any specific parts or aspects of the body. In fact, they do not have any specific meanings; they are not absolute terms. Yin and yang are merely convenient symbols to represent two opposing yet complimentary aspects in medicine and in all other fields.

Chapter 5: Two Aspects of One Reality – The Concept of Yin-Yang

It is heart-warming to remember that exogenous causes of cancer and all other dreadful diseases affect everybody, but if their natural functions are operating normally, they can overcome these causes, usually without their knowing. We are free from cancer not because we are free from carcinogens, but because we have the natural ability to overcome them.

Chapter 24: Cancer Can Be Cured  – Treat the Patient, Not His Cells

How can Chinese physicians treat patients successfully if they do not even have basic scientific equipments for blood tests and x-rays? The answer, as has been demonstrated in this book, is that these equipments are not necessary (though many modern Chinese physicians will gladly use them if they are available), because Chinese medicine uses different methods.

Chapter 28: Towards Holistic Health  – Is Chinese Medicine Primitive and Unscientific?
