Jenny McCarthy-whose bestselling books Louder Than Words and Mother Warriors told the stories of healing children with autism-teams up with a preeminent autism doctor to write the first book on a remarkably effective treatment. In 2006, autism became the leading disorder affecting children in the United States. While diagnoses skyrocket and parents struggle to find help, a group of innovative doctors has been pioneering therapies and treatments that are remarkably effective in healing conditions associated with autism. As word spreads about these incredible discoveries- helped in part by Jenny McCarthy's book Louder Than Words- parents are desperate to learn about the biomedical therapies for themselves. Since early intervention is key to a successful recovery, McCarthy has teamed up with Dr. Jerry Kartzinel, the doctor who successfully treated her son, to write the first book to give parents all the necessary information about biomedical treatment. Beginning with diagnosis, Dr. Kartzinel explains the different therapies that he uses. He shows parents how to make simple changes to their child's environment and diet that can result in marked improvements and are safe and easy to try at home. And finally he explains some of the more advanced therapies that many doctors use today, and the way parents, alongside a qualified medical professional, can determine whether or not such treatments would benefit their child. For new parents, Dr. Kartzinel provides helpful guidelines on how to best protect their child from developing autism.

There they happen across a lovely young woman named Hannah Taylor. Something about Hannah awakens the girl, and suddenly Autumn is full of sweet chatter and laughter.

The loss of a love is a nearly universal emotional crisis, whether the end is divorce, desertion, or a mutually agreed-upon separation. At first, friends and family are there to offer a shoulder to cry on, but after a few months there's an expectation that we just need to get over the crisis and move on. Thus, unprocessed, painful feelings are buried, leaving us numb. Or we repeat damaging relationship patterns over and over again. The situation doesn't have to be like that. Healing a Broken Heart guides those of us grieving for a lost love through four metaphorical seasons of recovery with provocative questions -- and journal pages on which to respond -- to help move us forward. The four seasons serve as powerful metaphors for the stages of the grieving process. Summer is the season for charting the course of a relationship: remembering hopes and expectations, the warning signs that went unheeded. During autumn, journalers accept the reality of breaking up and acknowledge things about the relationship that didn't serve their needs. Winter brings the pain of grief over the profound loss. Finally, spring -- and, with it, renewal -- invites readers to examine and understand how their family history may have affected their past relationships. Punctuated throughout with poems and moving meditations, the thoughtful, interactive approach of this book offers the time and space we all need to heal when our hearts are broken.

Written for those working to heal developmental trauma and seeking new tools for self-awareness and growth, this book focuses on conflicts surrounding the capacity for connection. Explaining that an impaired capacity for connection to self and to others and the ensuing diminished aliveness are the hidden dimensions that underlie most psychological and many physiological problems, clinicians Laurence Heller and Aline LaPierre introduce the NeuroAffective Relational Model® (NARM), a unified approach to developmental, attachment, and shock trauma that, while not ignoring a person's past, emphasizes working in the present moment. NARM is a somatically based psychotherapy that helps bring into awareness the parts of self that are disorganized and dysfunctional without making the regressed, dysfunctional elements the primary theme of the therapy. It emphasizes a person's strengths, capacities, resources, and resiliency and is a powerful tool for working with both nervous system regulation and distortions of identity such as low self-esteem, shame, and chronic self-judgment.From the Trade Paperback edition.

In recounting his patients' experiences, Dr. Oz forges a blueprint for the radical new medicine of the next millennium--drawing on the best from Eastern and Western therapies and empowering patients to become partners with doctors in promoting their own recovery. .

In some spaces we feel immediately comfortable while in others we feel ill at ease. From feng shui we've learned that energy in houses, as well as offices and stores, influences us. Negative energy from violence and trauma can linger, which is what we feel in a "sick" house.We each affect the world, and each other, with our emotions! When we experience strong emotions, such as anger, fear or pain relating to a death or other trauma, we exude strong negative energy patterns. Some energetic situations can be overpowering, and our homes can hold lasting impressions of the previous inhabitants. People are often affected by the feelings they experience in a new homes, and frequently adjust their lives to accommodate such undesired imprints. We humans are energetic beings. Our energies - positive and negative -- are strongest in our homes, where we spend the most time and where very personal events tend to happen, like abuse and death, as examples. When we move on, such negative energies linger and can affect new residents. HEALING HOUSES shows how a professional cleanses these energies to transform such sick houses into healthy homes.HEALING HOUSES tells how negative energies, overpowering feelings and physical effects remaining in a house from violent and tragic deaths, murders, and suicides. More importantly, HEALING HOUSES shows how the negative energy can be resolved and dispelled, so that the house feels like new, and tuned to current residents, rather than to the predecessor's traumas. The house itself changes as vibrational patterns that have been left by years of negative emotion, violence or death are cleansed. HEALING HOUSES includes a fascinating case history long-term where recurring attacks by bird and rats stopped after house cleansing. HEALING HOUSES provides a sophisticated metaphysical perspective and traces its development through case studies of dozens of the houses that Sheldon Norberg has "healed" or cleansed. HEALING HOUSES is a true healing odyssey.
