Dr David Wong has been helping people realise their potential for wellness for over thirty years. It is his sincere belief that everyone has the ability to become an active participant in his or her own health and well-being, yet many people fail to do so. Symptoms - be they fever, aches and pains, depression or a rash - indicate that something may be out of balance in people's bodies or lives. Their appearance offers the perfect opportunity for individuals to listen to their bodies and learn how they can regain balance - physically, emotionally and spiritually - and, thereby, achieve optimal health. In "Healing What Hurts", Dr. Wong and medical writer, Deborah Mitchell, give readers the tools they need to take charge of their own health. They discuss how to develop a strong foundation through good eating habits, a healthy lifestyle, stress management and a positive attitude and introduce readers to self-healing techniques such as herbal medicine, homoeopathy, acupressure and meditation. "Healing What Hurts", ultimately, is a comprehensive guidebook to healing common ailments. It covers a vast array of conditions from bad breath to tinnitus, bronchitis to varicose veins.
Each ailment section contains vital information such as causes and risk factors, prevention tips, best-bet natural remedies and alternative treatments. For instance, readers will learn about alternatives to antibiotics that nourish, rather than compromise the immune system and how to use exercises and acupressure treatments to rein in back pain. Importantly, for each ailment readers will, also, learn which symptoms are urgent and when to see a doctor.
