Banyen's Description: 

Written by a Westerner for the Western mind, here is the first book (originally published in 1989) to explore in light of modern science the balanced and comprehensive system of health care used by Chinese physicians, martial artists, and meditators for over 5,000 years.

Drawing on original Chinese sources and many years of personal experience, the author introduces the philosophy of Tao and gives detailed, practical information on:

  • diet and nutrition, including sample menus, food combining, and detoxifying the body
  • specific foods and juices as treatments for a wide range of diseases (including modern Western concerns as hypertension, cancer, infertility, herpes, and AIDS)
  • fasting and excretion
  • breathing exercises
  • physical exercises for long life, total relaxation, and general health
  • acupuncture and massage techniques
  • Taoist birth control
  • sex therapy, and bedroom arts and techniques to ensure complete satisfaction for both partners (considered essential for good health and long life)
  • herbal aphrodisiacs and other sexual aids
  • meditation -- turning essence into energy and energy into spirit.

With many helpful charts and clear illustrations, The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity makes the ancient “Way” readily accessible to those seeking to embrace ancient healing wisdom.

Among Daniel Reid’s other books are The Tao of Detox and Handbook of Chinese Healing Herbs.
