  • By Z'ev Rosenberg on May 2, 2013

    A true Chinese medical classic that instructs all and everyone on yang sheng/nourishing life through diet, rest/sleep, exercise, bathing, lifestyle, stress management and a host of other topics. Georges Ohsawa consulted this book when he developed the macrobiotic system originated by Sagen Ishizuka. . in fact, macrobiotics is a more modern translation of yang sheng. The original title of this book was Yojokun, Japanese for Yang Sheng/Nourishing Life. Ekiken Kaibara was a Japanese physician of the Tokugawa era, also a samurai who practiced in a more peaceful time. He wrote this guidebook for living when he was 84 years old. He is also still remembered as a Neo-Confucianist scholar who wrote a book on Qi that has been translated and is available from Amazon as well. For a low price, you can get a valuable guidebook for living that is certain to inspire those who are interested in Asian approaches to health and diet. .

    While the focus is on the improvement on overall health, the book goes far beyond that. I was surprised to see that the book covered far more than that

    I'm a healthnut and have read countless nutrition books but still learned so much from this:1) Melons should only be eaten on hot days. Never on a cool breezy day.2) Onsen (hot springs) should only be taken for external illnesses such as falls and sword wounds not for internal illnesses such as fevers.3) Using a fine-tooth comb causes hair to fall out.4) Avoid intimate relations during thunderstormsThere's also advice on which food combinations to avoid and how wine and tea affect chi. It's repetitious in many places but still worth several readings.
