About the Book

"In this enlightening book, Dr. Charles Moss offers us the opportunity to heal our modern world through the wisdom of the ages."
David Simon, MD, cofounder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and author of Free to Love, Free to Heal

Based on thirty years of medical practice, Power of the Five Elements presents the Five Adaptation Types, Dr. Charles Moss’ modern application of the Five Elements of Chinese medicine.

The five types allow readers to identify through questionnaires and case histories their own energetic patterns for adaptation and to create strategies for reducing stress and improving health. Focusing on the fact that maintaining health and preventing stress-induced diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, requires adapting successfully to changing circumstances, Dr. Moss offers a range of behavioral changes, dietary recommendations, and exercises such as meditations and visualizations to enhance adaptive responses.

In addition, he explains how to reduce maladaptive patterns and prevent damage from elevated cortisol, the main stress hormone, and includes current research about the effects of long-term stress on the brain and how these can be reversed.

Power of the Five Elements is a unique and powerful prescription to enhance healthy aging and prevent stress from damaging health.
