LOOKING, FEELING AND BEING YOUR BEST
Women are constantly barraged with messages about looking our best. Unfortunately, all too often what we hear is that we’re too old, fat or ugly — and that the solution is to cut or starve our way to beauty. With Inner Beauty, Xiaolan draws on years of experience healing patients in her clinic, as well as her training as both a medical doctor and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner — and revealing anecdotes from her own life — to help women achieve real beauty from the inside out.
Xiaolan Zhao (with Pauline Couture)
From an early age, we begin to strive for beauty. Even as we grow older, the pursuit of beauty remains linked to youth and perfection. For some, this search extends to lotions and diets. To others, the surgeon's scalpel. And yet beauty is something far more profound. Its ultimate source, as Xiaolan explains in this wise and important book, is health and well-being.
Through stories, case studies, dialogue between Eastern and Western medicine perspectives, and a comprehensive, practical reference section, Xiaolan brings her years of experience in the healing wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to Western women who want to achieve lifelong health, beauty and wellness.
