Summary

Summary

Beginning with an explanation of the principles of Oriental diagnosis (touching, 'seeing, ' and pressure), the author explains the concepts of Yin and Yang and then proceeds to a detailed examination of the art of 'seeing.' Trained to see irregularities, in posture, movement, mental states, facial features, and extremities, we can learn to detect potential problems even before minor pathological symptoms arise and can, therefore, take the corrective measures to avert sickness. Material on cancer and heart disease is also included.
