People are increasingly looking to alternatives to Western medicine and here is a practical self-help guide to a balanced and positive lifestyle. Tao, the most ancient and fundamental element in the world's oldest civilisation, is as relevant to today's world as to classical China. For the contemporary reader, this accessible book is the first to explore, in the light of the findings of modern Western science, the balanced and holistic system of health care used by Chinese physicians, martial artists and meditators for over 5,000 years.
Exploring the ancient teachings of characters such as The Yellow Emperor and The Plain Girl, Daniel Reid lights the path to sexual fulfilment. The instructions of the Way of Yin and Yang 'serve as signposts along the winding road to a woman's orgasm, and' - says the author - 'every man should learn to read them.'
In THE TAO OF HEALTH, SEX AND LONGEVITY, Daniel Reid has combined his personal experience with original research and in an accessible, informed and often anecdotal style he presents the issues and answers of practical concern to a Western audience. The book covers every aspect of health with concise information on diet and nutrition, fasting, breathing and exercise, medicine, meditation and sexual yoga.


A self-help guide that explores the balanced and holistic system of health care used by Chinese physicians, martial artists and mediators for over 5000 years. It introduces Taoist philosphy and presents issues and answers of practical concern, including esoteric sex, to a Western audience.

2.0 von 5 Sternen inauthentic, sometimes harmful, interpretation of tao. 18. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
It often happens that the original precepts of a taoist concept are lost in translation -- these ideas are difficult for Chinese, even before introducing the myriad difficulties of translating between two very different languages (Chinese and English). Sometimes when this happens, the gentle spirit is preserved, if still diluted. Meaning is lost, or mixed into a debased and generalized new age concept of Eastern religion/philosophies. This is harmless enough. But sometimes what gets lost in the translation is the vigilant care and gentleness that is central to the taoist practices. The yin gets lost, superceded by the Buddhist yang, which can transform many of the healthful practices of the taoist tradition into dangerous and degenerative practices. I must say, with some regret, that the author of this book finds himself in this position. Much of the information in this book is extremely valuable, particularly that which is concerned with diet and digestive health, if one is careful to know where the author strays from the path. Where he strays, especially in regards to sexual practices and colon cleansing, his advice becomes unhealthful. The obsessive fixation on the sexual organs and lower bowels, and skimpy material on physical exercises, betrays a lack of dedication to the true tao. If you are really interested in practicing tao, I suggest you start with tai chi chuan or chi gung. Chi gung is the most fundamental part of following tao. Find a teacher that is well-versed in an authentic taoist chi gung tradition. It may take a little effort to find one, but they are around.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly a beginner's, COMPLETE book of "the way". 26. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I believe I was like everyone else in thought, that I could try to be healthier, but that I wouldn't feel THAT much better. But I did, and I did. So much so that I took Reid's suggestions (ancient Chinese wisdom) to extreme, my life so much better for it. It's amazing how much improvement can be made from diet alone. Acupuncture and herbs can tweek your condition, but the most substancial improvements are made with diet as described in this book. I found great improvements with every aspect tried - including colonics. Areas of possible improvements are endless. With true effort following this book, I have cured my allergies, improved my vision, controlled Reynaud's phenomenon, and have been sick only twice in the past two years (both just a head cold. My most prized improvement has been clarity of mind, best described as level of awareness.
I also recommend Reid's, "The Complete Book of Chinese Health and Healing", as an important compliment. Although this second one is repetishous of "The Tao ...", it has some sound info on food profiles (p.108) and some important material (not in "The Tao ...") on replenishing or building up your lactobacteria colony, especially following any colonic irrigations.
If you have interest in taoist philosophy and practice, "The Tao ..." is a great place to start, covering most every aspect "the way" can be applied and reaped in ones life.
Happiness and Wholeness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is an EXCELLENT introduction to Taoism!!! 28. August 1999
Simply put: I bought this book out of curiosity and wound up curing a digestive disorder that had plagued me for my entire life! The book also enhanced my appreciation of my studies in Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Kung, Nei Kung, Meditation, Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. After reading this book I became a Taoist. It opened up the Way for further study and appreciation. Thank you Daniel P. Reid for compiling this information in a comprehensive and easily "digestible" manner. I also strongly recommend his other books, especially "The Complete Book of Chinese Health and Healing" and "Chinese Herbal Medicine". If you are serious about changing your life or curious about Tao, these books are all the introduction you will require.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The first chapters about the history of Taoism, 5 elements theory and basic Taoist philosophy are among the best I have ever read. As a martial arts master I also find the chapter about exercise very good. In all those chapters Reid quotes from the great daoist writings and therefore all fits in the Taoistic philosophy.
BUT then he starts to write about nutrition an how to eat acidic and alcalic foods, proteins and starch etc. and quotes a lot of American authors of the early and mid 20th century, but almost no Asian author and not one of the great writings on health or traditional Chinese medicine. It goes so far, that he advices on things like eating a lot of raw, unprepared fruit an vegetables, which surely isn't the way food is prepared in China for centuries, since food is seen as a source of energy and the body would need more energy for digesting a raw meal, rather than one that's already prepared.

IT'S EVEN GETTING WORSE when he writes about fasting and colon cleansing, where he stops quoting Asian authors at all. And that's only logical because I have never read in any of the many asian books about healing and health from many Chinese authors, that they would promote fasting as a means for healthy living. In the traditional Chinese medicine food is seen as an source of energy (qi) which is then converted in the body to energy the body could use for itself. When you fast you rely on your bodies energy, of which you have only a limited amount, given you from the time of birth. Depleting this source is considered harmful and so I have never read of or heard any asian Master promoting fasting or colon cleansing for health purposes (may suitable for spiritual purposes in monasteries).
