Health in Theory and Practice – Circling the Square with Steve Kippax

October 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Steve Kippax’s Health in Theory and Practice (AEON Books, 2019) presents the case for personal responsibility to health for the interested, aware layperson – and if a person is aware, how can they not be interested in their own wellbeing?

The book lays out the rationale for self-maintenance and personal growth and development through diet, exercise and qi gong, offering an energetic understanding of health and disease as compared to pharmaceutically-driven Western medicine’s suppression of symptoms. Accepting the value of both, Health in Theory and Practice advocates the wisdom of choosing the correct options at the correct time. If and when disease does occur, the book provides solutions via dietary advice, herbal medicine, homeopathy and acupressure/massage.

Join Steve as he explains how Health in Theory and Practice came to be published, from its inception in China 12 years ago to the various serendipitous events that have since led to its completion and publication. Following the free talk, you’ll have the chance to ask any questions and have your copy of the book signed by the author.

About Steve Kippax:
Steve has been practising since 1985. Originally using Western herbal medicine and homeopathy, he became interested in traditional Chinese medicine and studied Chinese herbal medicine from the late 1980s. He went to the University Hospital in Guangzhou People’s Republic of China in 1992, 1993, 1995, and 2007 to further his studies in herbal medicine and diet therapy, and to learn acupuncture, tui na massage and qi gong. As well as his private practices, in the 1990s Steve worked for the NHS at the Gateway Clinic. From 2000-2017 he was Head of Complementary Medicine at Third Space, which was London’s leading integrated medical centre. He is a past President of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, and was named as one of the top 20 Health Gurus in the country by the Daily Telegraph.
