Product Description

From the Publisher

This re-print is an exact reproduction of Chee Soo's original work with some minor corrections and updates and a new cover. We have published this book on high quality brilliant white paper with a laminated cover suitable for use as a handbook which will withstand regular use.
This book is part of the series 'Taoist Arts of the Lee Style' and is designed to be used in conjunction with the other books in the series.

From the Author

Chee Soo often remarked that each aspect of the Taoist Arts is like the fingers on your hand. All of them are needed to get a firm grasp on the subject, and this book is a companion book to the others in the series which many will be already familiar with, the books on T'ai Chi, Kung Fu, Chi Kung and so forth. However this book is of equal importance because good health and strong energy are fundamental to proper development in the other Taoist Arts and without doubt diet is key in this area of development.
Although this book contains vital information about the Taoist Macrobiotic diet which cannot be found elsewhere it shjould also be noted that it contains important elements which are related to the other areas of training in the Taoist Arts. Chee Soo scattered many of his secrets throughout his many works and it is really only by digesting each one in turn, and then returning to each book again with a new perspective that the true secrets of Chee Soo's style of Taoist development and cultivation exercises can be fully revealed.
Don't waste any more time, but this book immediately, you will never look back.

Format: Paperback
The Tao of Long Life, first published in 1979 is Chee Soo's classic text about the Taoist Long Life diet or Ch'ang Ming. We begin with an introduction to Taoist philosophy including the Tao, Yin and Yang, and the five elements. Moving on to practical matters we begin by exploring the field of chinese diagnosis by observation and symptoms, pulse taking etc. The most important part is the chapter about natural diet which gives a complete list and detailed description of the chang ming diet. This book provides great insight for those who are beginning to take an interest in Taoist practices, as well as being a down to earth guide to eating Natural Foods, it is also a vital part of Chee Soo's collection of five books about all aspects of the Taoist Arts.

A rose in the desert 21 May 2005
By Master Faraday - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book turned up on a dusty shelf of a forgotten bookstore and changed my life. I was dieting and still very young. With calory counting techniques I was unhealthy and weak. Then I tried techniques taught by the (unfortunate for the world) late master Chee Soo to help purify the person on all levels. Twenty years later I still recommend this manuscript to anyone who thinks they know something about themselves. The diagnoses it reveals about one's state of health are easy to follow for everyone and the health that ensues is not a luxury but a possibility.

To begin, I was very pleased with the delivery time. I received this product promptly. The book itself, to sound cliche, was life changing. I hope to apply the lessons outlined in this story to my life, and thus live longer, happier, and more harmoniously. I will reread this book numerous times.
