Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions$19.95
Nobody wants to have a chronic long-term illness. Unfortunately, most of us will experience at least one of these conditions during our lives. The goal of this book is to help people with chronic illness explore healthy ways to live with physical or mental conditions. A healthy way to live with a chronic illness is to seek soundness of body and mind and work to overcome physical and emotional issues. The challenge is to learn how to function at your best regardless of the difficulties living with a chronic condition can present. The goal is to achieve the things you want to do and to get pleasure from life. That is what this book is all about. By showing readers how to become active self-managers through problem solving, goal setting, and action planning while also presenting the basics of healthy eating, exercise, relaxation, and emotional empowerment, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions offers readers a unique and exciting opportunity—the chance to take back one’s life and enjoy it to the fullest extent possible while living with chronic illness. Originally based on a five-year study, this completely revised 5th edition has grown to include the feedback of medical professionals and people with chronic conditions all over the world.
The Disease Delusion$12.99
For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for three quarters of our total healthcare costs, because we’re masking these illnesses with pills and temporary treatments, rather than addressing their underlying causes, he argues. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path of further illness.
This user-friendly guide gives straightforward and practical advice to anyone who wants a holistic approach to taking care of themselves naturally. Following the traditional framework of an anatomy book that explains each body system chapter-by-chapter, Pip Waller—an experienced practitioner and teacher—provides fundamental information and tips about exercise, diet, supplements, understanding and caring for your emotional and mental health, naturopathic principles from various traditions, and simple yet effective ways of working with spiritual energy. Based on the premise that an underlying vital force—which needs to be in balance for health to be fully present—animates all life, this book is designed to support and promote our inherent tendency toward wholeness and equilibrium. Each chapter includes fun recipes to enhance health and well-being.
Body into Balance$18.50
An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn’t cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria Noël Groves shows you how to read your body’s signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You’ll learn how each of your major body systems — respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more — optimally functions, and you’ll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.
The Contagion Myth$14.99
For readers of Plague of Corruption, Thomas S. Cowan, MD, and Sally Fallon Morell ask the question: are there really such things as “viruses”? Or are electro smog, toxic living conditions, and 5G actually to blame for COVID-19?
