Rethink your diet to improve the quality and quantity of blood circulation!


Blood circulation is the foundation of human health.

Many people have health conditions that are a result of poor circulation.


In traditional Chinese medicine, the term “blood” refers to a general concept that includes things like nutrition and hormones. When you have a low amount of blood, your nutrition and hormonal count are also low, meaning the quality of your blood is low as a whole. With unhealthy blood comes poor circulation.


But it’ll be okay!


The quality and amount of our blood is influenced by what we eat. In other words, our blood can only be made from what we eat. This means if we change our eating habits, we can easily improve our circulation. What and how should we eat in order to improve circulation and live happy, healthy lives?


The author of the best-selling Good Blood Flow Can Resolve Everything, and a 4th-generation traditional Chinese medicine specialist who works at the more than 90-year-old pharmacy on the road to Izumo Temple, provides clear and easy explanations about how to achieve this.

The new book from the author of the best-selling Good Blood Flow Can Resolve Everything is finally here! His second book tackles the topic of food and what we should be eating in order to improve our circulation. Many think that changing the way you eat means giving up foods you love, exercising restraint, or taking supplements, but everything in this book is much simpler than that! I’ve also started trying out his methods myself.


Akiyoshi Horie

Herbal medicine specialist / Infertility counselor / Head of Horie Pharmacy Ltd. / Representative director of the Japan Kampo Yakuzen Association.

Born in Izumo, Japan, in 1974, Akiyoshi Horie is a 4th-generation traditional Chinese medicine specialist who works at the more than 90-year-old pharmacy on the road to Izumo Temple. After graduating with a pharmaceutical degree, he became attracted to the treatment methods of traditional Chinese medicine and how they differ from the symptomatic approach of Western medicine, changing his path. While studying in China, he was surprised to learn that a friend struggling with infertility had regained fertility after using Chinese medicinal remedies he prescribed. This encouraged him to begin specializing in Chinese medicine within his own gynecology practice.


Not only does he try to remedy general health issues, he also strives to improve the way our mind operates. His approach consists of a synthesis of Western medicine, Chinese medicine and psychology, with a focus on blood flow. The approach works, having brought him great success as he’s dealt with more than 50,000 cases including those related to infertility, depression, dieting and autonomic ataxia.                                      


Since his humble beginnings in his hometown of Shimane, he has gotten to a point of being solidly booked up to a month in advance, with many consultation requests coming from overseas as well. Some 90% of his patients are those who went to general hospitals for infertility treatment with little to no success. Since 2009, more than 1,000 of his patients have reported successful pregnancies.             


Having been inaugurated as a representative of the board of directors for the Japan Association of Chinese Medicine, he continues to strive to spread knowledge about Chinese medicine and to change lives. His book about avoiding illness by improving blood circulation, Good Blood Flow Can Resolve Everything (Sunmark), has sold more than 200,000 copies domestically.
