“My wife thinks it is one of the best books on Chinese medicine that I’ve written. It’s also one of my favorites as well. I really love treating little kids with Chinese medicine. It always works so quickly and painlessly. If you start a child out with a good foundation of healthy, this will help that person their entire life. It’s my experience as a professional practitioner that most chronic conditions in the middle-aged and elderly can be traced directly back to disease mechanisms put into motion during infancy or early childhood.” -Bob
