Dr. Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing

by Judith Orloff

"We are the keepers of an intuitive intelligence so powerful it can tell us how to heal." In her groundbreaking new book, Dr. Judith Orloff leads readers to the heart of a radical revolution in health care: the union of medicine and intuition, of body, mind, and soul. We're all born with the gift of intuition; many of us have long ago blocked that "indisputable sense of rightness" which is our truest inner compass.Dr. Orloff's guide will show you how to recapture, nurture, and affirm your intuitive ability, so that you can utilize it to help heal yourself. Intuition plays an indispensable role in self-diagnosis, pain control, immune response, and recovery from acute and chronic illness; it can lead you to breakthroughs in anxiety, panic, depression, and other emotional blockages, even when traditional psychotherapy has failed. Intuition also offers insights into the use of medications and the selection of the right healer for your needs. Further, it is integral for sexual healing, since sexuality is a potent connector and energy source for clarifying spirituality and improving vitality.Dr. Orloff introduces five practical steps she uses in her own life and teaches to patients which illustrate how to harness the power of intuition to heal. You'll learn to clarify your beliefs, listen to your body's messages, access inner guidance, sense subtle energy, and interpret your dreams. Practicing these steps you'll recognize early warning signals and act on them to help prevent illness. You'll have skills to uncover important information from meditation and remote viewing (a way of intuitively tuning in) to make sense of confusing signals. The insights you'll gain from these tools will lend reason, compassion, and meaning to events such as illness, loss, or despair. Following Dr. Orloff's simple, clear instructions, illustrated with examples from her own experience and psychiatric practice, you'll recapture a sense of vision that will bring vibrance to all that you do."Our intuition can open us up to our spirituality and show us how to be more healthy and whole," writes Dr. Orloff. "If you're in good health, you'll want to know about intuition because it can help you stay well and recognize messages that prevent illness. If you or your loved ones need healing, you'll also want intuition to show the way." Written with abundant warmth, humor, and compassion, this guide is your companion to a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Dr. Rob's Guide to Raising Fit Kids

by D.O. Robert S Gotlin

"Let's make our goal the raising of a generation of healthy young people who, through thoughtful participation in their world and sensible eating habits, will seek their best level of performance, develop it, and so build self-confidence through success."Dr. Rob's Fitness Guide for Kids with Sensible Parents emphasizes that fitness in children is a family issue, and that parents and children need to work together if the children are to achieve optimal health and live a longer, more rewarding life. Because it is impossible to discuss fitness in children without addressing the increasingly important problem of childhood obesity, issues of maintaining or achieving optimal weight are integral every step along the way.It's not just about food; it's about how kids and their families spend their time. Dr. Rob Gotlin sees sports and exercise as the route to physical, psychological, and social health. He coaches several children's teams, because he believes that participation in sports teaches kids basic coordination skills, the rules and how to play by them, thoughtfulness, concern for others, useful experiences in winning and losing, and the satisfaction of giving one's best for a joint goal, and offers a terific vehicle for attaining physical fitness and good health. These values are reflected throughout the book.Special features of this book that make it a must-read for all parents include: Fitness guidelines for kids of every age. Developing an exercise program is considered in the context of a child's age, and what can be expected at each age in terms of physical prowess and emotional response. At age 6, for example, the attention span is less than a minute, so games and sports should be about movement, not about "how to," emphasizing the development of fundamental motor skills. For the ten-to-twelve-year old, it's time to look for programs and classes that focus on developmental levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced) rather than chronological age. Choosing the right sport for your child. The decline in physical education programs in elementary, middle, and high schools means that parents must supervise at least some sports participation for their children. The goal of every parent must be to help each child choose a sport or physical activity in which he or she will find both comfort and confidence. Choosing the right equipment for every sport and at every age. For each sport, detailed information is provided about the equipment needed, what features to look for when purchasing equipment, and variables by the child's age - such as the proper length and weight of a baseball bat. Healthy meal plans and sports menus that don't look like a diet. With dietician Toni Colarusso, the author created a regimen that will give kids what they need to start a lifetime of good eating habits. Each day's menu allows for substitutions with other foods that may be used depending on the child's preference-and what parents find in their fridge and on their shelves. Recipes and menu plans will be posted as downloadable files on the book's website, www.fitnessforkids.diamedicapub.com. Menu planning linked to sports. A week's worth of menu planning is linked to each sport. These food plans can be mixed and mingled, while keeping the calorie count steady. Instead of asking kids to eat healthy food, they emphasize power foods, and relate power foods to sports, emphasizing to the child that the better she eats, the better her performance will be. What kid wouldn't be proud to be on the baseball diet? Or admit she's on the soccer diet? Provides information on caloric needs for children of all ages and weights. Readers will learn how to calculate their children's body mass index and calorie needs, and menus include calorie counts and suggested modifications for weight gain or loss. Eating for optimal sports performance. Nutritional needs for practice, training, and pre-and post-game eating that will maximize performance include specific menu suggestions. For example, carbohydrate intake should be emphasized on the day of a...

Dr. Rosenfeld calls it as it is, including a delicious description of how to tell a quack from a legitimate practitioner.This is an eye-opening and entertaining approach to a controversial subject of vital interest to everyone. You will find many surprises in these pages. Read the excerpt for just some of the ways alternative medicine can and cannot work for you.From the Hardcover edition.

Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book

by Susan M. Love Karen Lindsey

Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has long been the bible for the newly diagnosed. In this completely revised fifth edition, it also becomes a guide for those at risk of getting breast cancer, survivors interested in the consequences of their treatment, and anyone who wants to understand the new research about how the local environment influences the manifestations and treatments of many different kinds of breast cancer.

Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Love's book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.
