A truly remarkable story of Zen medicine and how you can bring its practices into your own life.

Author Shi Zxinggui began studying Zen medicine--a combination of meditation, gentle physical activity and medicine--as a child under the tutelage of the Shaolin Temple's Master Dechan. She carried it with her, eventually going on to lecture on the subject in both China and abroad for several decades. When she was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer, Zxinggui returned to the Shaolin Temple, hoping the Zen medicine she'd spent so long teaching others about would help her. After careful nursing and appropriate mind and body exercises, her cancer went into remission.

Since her own cancer battle, Zxinggui has helped many other cancer patients, devoting her life to this work. This book, which draws on the author's 20 years as a cancer fighter, 50 years as a doctor and life-long wisdom as a Zen practitioner, provides insight into how readers can implement these strategies, which emphasize daily health care and cultivation of the body and soul, into their own lives--not only to help with physical diseases, but also to ease mental anxieties and inspire others to live a clean, healthy life.

Ailments addressed in the book are varied, and include:
  • IBS
  • Lumbar disc herniation
  • Back and leg soreness
  • High blood pressure
  • Asthma
  • And many others
