Nourishing Destiny, first published in 1999, has now become a classic text in the field of Chinese Medicine and is in use as a core text by schools of many traditions throughout the world. Nourishing Destiny examines Chinese medicine as a science pertaining to the evolution of consciousness. Equating health with open awareness and illness with habitual functioning, Lonny examines the Chinese notion of destiny as it applies to the practice of acupuncture and herbal medicine. The text is grounded in the Classics and extends their view into the treatment room today.
