Whether you are suffering from the common cold or struggling with more acute conditions like diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease, here is a book that can finally offer a safe, effective, and inexpensive alternative to drugs.

The book's accessible and informative text is complemented by more than 100 easy-to-follow illustrations of "healing movements" drawn from yoga, qi gong, tai chi, and various aerobic and strengthening techniques.
