Amazon Buyer Review:

This book is based on Greek medicine as understood and some what improved by Avicenna. Gain insight in to the holsitic energetics of health and disease by reading this book. Understand the role within the body of the Four Elements Earth, Water Air and Fire and the Four Humours Blood, Phlegm, Yellow Bile and Black Bile.
