Meditation as Medicine:
Proven effective by scientific research and presented here by Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa and Cameron Stauth, the practice of Medical Meditation revolutionizes the healing process. By balancing and regenerating the body's ethereal and physical energies through simple meditations, Medical Meditation unites the mind, body, and spirit into a powerful triad.
Each Medical Meditation here has a specific physiological effect, targeting afflictions from arthritis to ulcers to cancer. Dr. Khalsa details the five unique attributes that endow this type of meditation with far more power than standard meditation. The combination of special postures and movements; exact positioning of the hands and fingers; particular mantras; specific breathing patterns; and a unique focus of concentration can change your entire biochemical profile, easing you into a calm, healing state. Practiced in conjunction with conventional or alternative medical treatments, cutting-edge Medical Meditation activates the healing force within you.
The Body Keeps the Score:
The effects of trauma can be devastating for sufferers, their families and future generations. Here one of the world’s experts on traumatic stress offers a bold new paradigm for treatment, moving away from standard talk and drug therapies and towards an alternative approach that heals mind, brain and body. ‘Van der Kolk draws on thirty years of experience to argue powerfully that trauma is one of the West’s most urgent public issues…packed with science and human stories.’ New Scientist
The Biology of Belief:
The Biology of Belief is a ground breaking work in the field of new biology. Former medical school professor and research scientist Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., presents his experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientists, which examine in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life, showing that genes and DNA do not control our biology; instead, DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. This profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics has been hailed as a major breakthrough, showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.
The Female Brain:
In this ground breaking book, Dr Louann Brizendine describes the uniquely flexible structure of the female brain and its constant, dynamic state of change - the key difference that separates it from that of the male - and reveals how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and whom they’ll love. She also reveals the neurological explanations behind why... * A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened...* Thoughts about sex enter a woman’s brain perhaps once every couple of days, but may enter a man’s brain up to once every minute...* A woman’s brain goes on high alert during pregnancy - and stays that way long after giving birth...* A woman over 50 is more likely to initiate divorce than a man...* Women tend to know what people are feeling, while men can’t spot an emotion unless someone cries or threatens them with bodily harm! Accessible, fun and compelling, and based on more than three decades of research, The Female Brain will help women to better understand themselves - and the men in their lives.
The Male Brain:
Did you know that the male brain:
* is a lean, mean problem-solving machine that uses analytical brain structures, not emotional ones, to find solutions
* thrives under competition, instinctively plays rough, and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy
* has an area for sexual pursuit that is 2.5 times larger than that of the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts; and much, much more.
As Dr Louann Brizendine's impeccably researched, irresistible guide follows the male brain through every phase of life, from infancy to adulthood, it unlocks many secrets and offers fascinating insights into a range of subjects, including emotional intimacy, anger, aggression and winning.
It also provides answers to many baffling questions and exposes the often shocking gulf that exists between the sexes.
Mind Over Medicine:
We've been led to believe that when we get sick, it's our genetics. Or it's just bad luck—and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. For years, Lissa Rankin, M.D., believed the same. But when her own health started to suffer, and she turned to Western medical treatments, she found that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practise was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body's innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. In an attempt to better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years.
Using extraordinary cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body's physiology. She lays out the scientific data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body's self-healing processes.
You'll be introduced to a radical new wellness model based on Dr. Rankin's scientific findings. Her unique six-step program will help you uncover where things might be out of whack in your life—spiritually, creatively, environmentally, nutritionally, and in your professional and personal relationships—so that you can create a customised treatment plan aimed at bolstering these health-promoting pieces of your life. You'll learn how to listen to your body's 'whispers' before they turn to life-threatening 'screams' that can be prevented with proper self-care, and you'll learn how to trust your inner guidance when making decisions about your health and your life.
By the time you finish Mind Over Medicine, you'll have made your own Diagnosis, written your own Prescription, and created a clear action plan designed to help you make your body ripe for miracles.
