The Tao of Detox
The Secrets of Yang-Sheng Dao
By Daniel Reid. 6 x 9, 352 pages, In The Tao of Detox Daniel Reid combines traditional Eastern practices and the latest of modern Western thinking to offer detoxification methods that can repair in as little as seven to ten days much of the long-term damage done. He provides breathing exercises, massage techniques, and soft exercises such as yoga and tai chi that help the body to heal itself. He also explains the importance of rational retoxification, which allows the careful reintroduction of less healthy substances, and offers ways to counteract those toxins we cant--or dont want to--avoid, including alcohol and tobacco. Reid explains that, just as we care for our cars with regular tune-ups, by practicing periodic detox as well as rational retox, we can enjoy long and healthy lives and still be able to eat, drink, and be merry.
