Being fertile and fruitful can mean giving birth to a child -- but to have a fertile soul means to give birth to the true self a woman wants to be: to live a life filled with passion, strength, joy, and adventure. In The Way of the Fertile Soul, Dr. Randine Lewis outlines ten ancient Chinese medical and Taoist "secrets" that hold the little-known key to successfully conceiving babies, new dreams, and a fulfilling life for women at any phase in their lives.
The Way of the Fertile Soul encourages women to strive toward health, abundance, and a fruitful, joyous approach to life. By using diagnostic questionnaires, qi gong exercises, and guided meditations to help the reader understand how the elements of nature express themselves in her body, mind, and spirit, The Way of the Fertile Soul provides the tools to greatly increase a woman's chance of conceiving, identify imbalances, reduce stress, increase energy, and uncover her intrinsic creativity and express it fully.
Dr. Randine Lewis began her studies in conventional Western medicine before moving on to traditional Chinese medicine. She received an M.S. in Oriental medicine from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and interned at the Dalian Hospital of traditional Chinese medicine in Dalian, China, before earning a Ph.D. in alternative medicine from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines in India. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband, three children, and their dogs, cats, rats, iguana, and fish.
