‘Chinese Herbal Medicine and Psychophysiology’ integrates traditional and orthodox medicines, bringing rational scientific understandings to ancient insights of our psyche. Psyche is the process of transformation, growth and change and emotion is not a thing but a neurological response to stimuli, while a feeling is the conscious recognition of an emotional event.
This book examines the parallels between traditional medicines of the East and the emerging science of Psychophysiology. In particular, Daniel discusses the theories of vagaltone, forwarded by Porges and Cozolino, and the traditional Chinese medicine concept of san jiao.
