Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief

by David Winston Steven Maimes

The definitive guide to adaptogenic herbs, formerly known as “tonics,” that counter the effects of age and stress on the body • Reveals how adaptogens increase the body’s resistance to adverse influences • Provides a history of the use of these herbal remedies and the actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb We all deal with stress every day, and every day our bodies strive to adapt and stay balanced and healthy. In Adaptogens, authors David Winston and Steven Maimes provide a comprehensive look into adaptogens, non-toxic herbs such as ginseng, eleuthero, and licorice, that produce a defensive response to stress in our bodies. Formerly known as rejuvenating herbs or tonics, adaptogens help the body to “adapt” to the many influences it encounters. They increase stamina and counter the normal effects of aging and thus are becoming important tools in sports medicine and in the prevention and treatment of chronic fatigue and other stress-related disorders. Winston and Maimes present the historical uses of these herbal remedies in India, Russia, China, and the Americas and explain how they work and why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness. Monographs for each adaptogen also present the latest scientific research and include the origin, traditional use, actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb.

Ansiedade: Use Terapia Para Combater Ansiedade, Depressão, Stress, Fobias E Ataques De Pânico

by Geert Winston

Ainda que as suas experiências possam divergir dependendo de uma série de fatores, quer a sua riqueza tenha sido adquirida ou herdada, estas elites geralmente descrevem-se como sendo produtivas e prudentes, e como tal moralmente dignas, enquanto os ricos indignos são preguiçosos, ostensivos e snobes. Sherman argumenta que esta distinção ética entre ricos "bons" e "maus" caracteriza a cultura americana de uma forma mais ampla, e que perpetua a desigualdade económica em vez de a desafiar. Finalmente, iremos falar sobre simples passos que pode começar a dar já hoje para curar a sua ansiedade. Iremos abordar exercícios simples de respiração e meditação, técnicas de consciência, e algumas técnicas para construir auto-confiança. Mantendo uma dieta saudável e algum exercício como parte do processo de cura, iremos passar por alguns dos processos para incorporar na sua rotina diária. Você merece que lutem por si, e espero que quando acabar de ler este livro, esteja no bom caminho para encontrar a sua paz, força e alegria.

The Economics of Excess: Addiction, Indulgence, and Social Policy

by Harold Winter

The Economics of Excess discusses both standard and behavioral economics as they apply to addiction, indulgence, and social policy. Chapter One provides a thorough discussion of economic models of addiction. The model developed in most detail takes into account both standard and behavioral approaches. The next three chapters examine specific indulgences: smoking, drinking, and overeating. The heart of this book is its comprehensive discussion of what is often referred to as the "new paternalism. " Many economists are now challenging the more traditional belief that, unless they are harming others, people should be left to their own indulgences. As more and more economists are arguing for policies that are designed to protect people from themselves, this book offers a serious, yet accessible, discussion of the pros and cons of such interventions. Written in an approachable style, this book will serve researchers who are new to the economics of addiction and students in a variety of economics and policy courses alike.
