Summary
Dan Keown's highly accessible, witty and original book shows how Western medicine validates the theories of Chinese medicine, and how an integrated theory can enlarge our understanding of how bodies work on every level. He explains the generative force of embryology, how the hearts of two people in love (or, in scientific terms, 'quantum entanglement') truly beat as one, how a cheating heart is also an ill heart (which is why men are twice as likely to die of a sudden heart attack with their mistress than with their wife), how neural crest cells determine our lifespan and why Proust's madeleines evoked the memories they did. Packed with good stories and surprising details, this book shows how the theories of Western and Chinese medicine can together explain mysteries of biology and reveal how the body really works
