Your Face Never Lies

A NEW Kushi Institute Weekend Workshop!


oriental diagnosis

With Alex Jack and Bettina Zumdick
Friday March 7 to Sunday, March 9, 2014

Conventional medical diagnosis excels at lab tests, scans, and other costly, hi-tech methods, but frequently fails to detect illness, especially when it first begins and is easiest to relieve. Traditional Far Eastern diagnosis, an ancient holistic system of knowledge, often can discover physical, mental, and psychological imbalances before they arise.

In this seminar, you will learn the basics of how to detect and understand health problems simply by looking at the mouth and lips; eyes; nose, cheeks, and ears; forehead; hair; hands, feet; and skin. Clear, easy-to-follow guidance will enable you to quickly recognize signs of illness so you can begin working toward a state of balanced health and well-being and assist family members.

Modern medical practice often focuses on a specific ailment while ignoring the interconnectedness of the human body, mind, and spirit. This seminar is an indispensible introduction to Oriental diagnosis, a revolutionary yet centuries old way to identify and prevent disease while preserving health and harmony.
