by Gary Wagman, Ph.D., L.Ac. —

Deeply rooted in the classics of Oriental medicine, the ancient Korean art of Sasang medicine explains how we each are born with a specific body “type” that establishes our physical and emotional strengths and weaknesses.

These traits have a direct influence on how we interact with others and react to stress, trauma and illness.

Wagman explores the four major body types of Sasang medicine and gives two different self-tests to determine your type.

He explains the balance of yin and yang energy within the organs for each type and how this underlies your emotional tendencies and health patterns.

Offering stories from his Sasang medical practice, as well as his own healing, the author shows how organ excesses and deficiencies are often the culprit in emotional and psychological issues, and how addressing these energetic imbalances can bring about lasting change.

Wagman provides an extensive look at the most beneficial foods and herbs for each type and those that could be harmful, as well as which forms of exercise are most effective.

He offers Sasang approaches for a range of common conditions and introduces ways to enhance spiritual well-being by balancing your innate emotional strengths and weaknesses.
