Healer

by Carol Cassella

From national bestselling author Carol Cassella comes the story of one doctor's struggle to hold her family together through a storm of broken trust and questioned ethics.Claire is at the start of her medical career when she falls in love with Addison Boehning, a biochemist with blazing genius and big dreams. A complicated pregnancy deflects Claire's professional path, and she is forced to drop out of her residency. Soon thereafter Addison invents a simple blood test for ovarian cancer, and his biotech start-up lands a fortune. Overnight the Boehnings are catapulted into a financial and social tier they had never anticipated or sought: they move into a gracious Seattle home and buy an old ranch in the high desert mountains of eastern Washington, and Claire drifts away from medicine to become a full-time wife and mother. Then Addison gambles everything on a cutting-edge cancer drug, and when the studies go awry, their comfortable life is swept away. Claire and her daughter, Jory, move to a dilapidated ranch house in rural Hallum, where Claire has to find a job until Addison can salvage his discredited lab. Her only offer for employment comes from a struggling public health clinic, but Claire gets more than a second chance at medicine when she meets Miguela, a bright Nicaraguan immigrant and orphan of the contra war who has come to the United States on a secret quest to find the family she has lost. As their friendship develops, a new mystery unfolds that threatens to destroy Claire's family and forces her to question what it truly means to heal. Healer exposes the vulnerabilities of the American family, provoking questions of choice versus fate, desire versus need, and the duplicitous power of money.

The Healer

by Michael Blumlein

Payne is a member of a minority offshoot of humanity called Grotesques, or Tesques, who are distinguished by a cranial deformity and an extra orifice in their chest. A small percentage of Tesques have the ability to effect phenomenal healings, which makes them a valuable commodity in their world. Sadly, such gifted healers live a life somewhere between that of a possession and a slave.Payne is unusual in that he is seemingly unaffected by the mysterious burn out (called "The Drain") that all other healers experience. The novel follows his journey across the strange landscape of his world in a search for an acceptance he may never find. Along the way, we move from the outskirts of society, to an isolated mining camp, to a metropolis dedicated to gambling and vice, to a secret government compound where the most dangerous of healings are performed. Finally, we climax in a scene where reality meets mythology, and Payne experiences a transformation that will forever alter the balance between Tesques and Humans.Blumlein brings his experience as a practicing physician to bear in this novel, which subtly and beautifully examines the ways in which society both reveres and fears members of the medical profession. The Healer is a story of human life and death, human rites and rituals, seen through the eyes of an outsider, one who knows humans better, perhaps, than they know themselves. In the vein of such authors as Jonathan Lethem and Jonathan Carroll, The Healer is literate, philosophical, entertaining, moving and original.

A twenty-first-century doctor. A third-century plague. A love out of time. First-year resident Dr. Lisbeth Hastings is too busy to take her father's bizarre summons seriously. But when a tragic mistake puts her career in jeopardy, answering her father's call seems her only hope of redeeming the devastating failure that her life has become. While exploring the haunting cave at her father's archaeological dig, Lisbeth falls through a hidden hole, awakening to find herself the object of a slave auction and the ruins of Roman Carthage inexplicably restored to a thriving metropolis. Is it possible that she's traveled back in time, and, if so, how can she find her way back home? Cyprian Thascius believes God called him to rescue the mysterious woman from the slave trader's cell. What he doesn't understand is why saving the church of his newfound faith requires him to love a woman whose peculiar ways could get him killed. But who is he to question God? As their different worlds collide, it sparks an intense attraction that unites Lisbeth and Cyprian in a battle against a deadly epidemic. Even as they confront persecution, uncover buried secrets, and ignite the beginnings of a medical revolution, Roman wrath threatens to separate them forever. Can they find their way to each other through all these obstacles? Or are the eighteen hundred years between them too far of a leap?

The Healer Within

by Roger Jahnke

With today's emphasis on bottom-line managed care, self-care has never been more important. And with ever-increasing evidence of their efficacy, ancient mind-body healing practices once deemed "alternative" have never been more popular. Inspired by Chinese medicine's central belief that the remedies we need are produced naturally within us all, Roger Jahnke, a doctor of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, "prescribes" an easy-to-implement program of gentle movement, self-applied massage, breathing excercises and relaxation or meditation. Through these four remarkably simple yet dramatically effective techniques, he provides a self-care plan that works without costly drugs, equipment or experts. Including applications for specific ailments, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS and arthritis, this is an empowering, hands-on guide to enjoying optimal health and well-being.

by Richard Carlson Benjamin Shield W. Brugh Joy

In thirty-seven original essays written for this book, some of the world's leaders in healing explore their personal and professional experiences in order to uncover the underlying principles on which all healing rests.

Their topics include: what healing really is and how it takes place the power of the healer within what to look for in a healer the function of spirituality in healing the dramatic effects of the healing relationship the role of attitudes and emotions love as a healing force healing and death The result is a grand synthesis of heartfelt thinking that offers a treasury of profound insights for people in the healing professions, people who seek to develop their own healing capacities, people who wish to benefit from healers, and anyone interested in the magical properties of human relationships.

The Healer's War

by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

Although perhaps best known for her lightly humorous fantasies and collaborations with Anne McCaffrey on the Petaybee series and the Acorna series, Elizabeth Anne Scarborough has also written Healer's War, a classic novel of the Vietnam War, enriched with a magical, mystical twist, which won the 1989 Nebula Award for Best Novel of 1988. The Minneapolis Star Tribune called it "a brutal and beautiful book." Scarborough herself was a nurse in Vietnam during the war, and she draws on her own personal experiences to create the central character, Lieutenant Kitty McCulley. McCulley, a young and inexperienced nurse tossed into a stressful and chaotic situation, is having a difficult time reconciling her duty to help and heal with the indifference and overt racism of some of her colleagues, and with the horrendously damaged soldiers and Vietnamese civilians whom she encounters during her service at the China Beach medical facilities. She is unexpectedly helped by the mysterious and inexplicable properties of an amulet, given to her by one of her patients, an elderly, dying Vietnamese holy man, which allows her to see other people's "auras" and to understand more about them as a result. This eventually leads to a strange, almost surrealistic journey through the jungle, accompanied by a one-legged boy and a battle-seasoned but crazed soldier, and, by the end of the journey, McCulley has found herself and a way to live and survive through the madness and destruction.

The Healer's War

by Elizabeth Scarborough

No one could have told Lieutenant Kitty McCulley that this was what it meant to be a war nurse. No one could have told her that she was going to Vietnam, not to heal, but to ready her patients for the real pain. Not to alleviate suffering, but to become an object of contempt and misdirected lust. Not to try to save all victims, but to choose sides against people she thought she was there to help. No one could have told her. And it wouldn't have made any difference anyway.<P><P> When one of her patients, a revered holy man to the Vietnamese, gives Kitty an amulet with seemingly inexplicable powers, her world is changed forever. For the amulet gives her the power to see the auras that emanate from those around her; and the auras allow her to separate the brave from the cowardly, the compassionate from the heartless, and the truly dangerous from the frightened and confused. It is a power she will need to save not only her sanity, but her life. Going against orders, Kitty convinces a helicopter pilot to help her take one of her orphan patients to safety; but when the chopper is shot down, Kitty is left in the enemy-held jungle to survive by her wits... and the power of the amulet.<P> With the child and a lone American soldier whose aura suggests almost total fear and potential danger, Kitty becomes witness to war at its most horrid.., and its most human. Here in the jungle, war and its participants are laid bare and the most basic of truths are revealed to those with the power to see them.<P> A multifaceted, riveting reading experience, The Healer's War is one of the first novels to explore the life of a military nurse in Vietnam. It is a powerful, evocative, and touching story that extends beyond the bounds of fantastic fiction to offer a richly satisfying novel of the human heart.

The Healing

by Gayl Jones

Gayl Jones's special gift is to shape experience and make it seem unshaped. -John Alfred Avant, The New RepublicGayl Jones's first novel, Corregidora, won her recognition as a writer whose work was gripping, subtle, and sure. It was praised, along with her second novel, Eva's Man, by writers and critics from all over the nation: John Updike, Maya Angelou, John Edgar Wideman, and James Baldwin, to name a few. The publication of The Healing, her first novel in over twenty years, is a literary event.Harlan Jane Eagleton is a faith healer, traveling by bus to small towns, converting skeptics, restoring minds and bodies. But before that she was a minor rock star's manager, and before that a beautician. She's had a fling with her rock star's ex-husband and an Afro-German horse dealer; along the way she's somehow lost her own husband, a medical anthropologist now traveling with a medicine woman in Africa. Harlan tells her story from the end backwards, drawing us constantly deeper into her world and the mystery at the heart of her tale-the story of her first healing.The Healing is a lyrical and at times humorous exploration of the struggle to let go of pain, anger, and even love. Slipping seamlessly back through Harlan's memories in a language rich with the textured cadences of the black Southerner, Gayl Jones weaves her story to its dramatic-and unexpected-beginning.

Healing ADD: The Breakthrough Program That Allows You to See and Heal the Six Types of Attention Deficit Disorder

by Daniel G. Amen

A radically new approach to treating the single most common learning and behavioral problem in America. Commonly perceived as a flavor-of-the-month diagnosis, ADD is, in fact, an enormous health problem that will only continue to grow. It affects fully 6 percent of the population, yet less than one-third of them are taking medication. Why? According to Dr. Daniel Amen, Attention Deficit Disorder is underdiagnosed, incorrectly treated, and poorly understood. Dr. Amen, board-certified in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry and nuclear medicine, has discovered that there are six types of ADD-not just the commonly known two. Moreover, the most frequently prescribed treatment-Ritalin-makes four of these types worse. Dr. Amen's discovery results from an intensive, years-long study of brain imaging that identified the distinctive brain dysfunctions characterizing each ADD type. Giving guidelines and diagnostic tools for determining which type of ADD an adult or child has, Healing ADD from the Inside Out provides readers with a comprehensive and proven program for enhancing the brain function for each of the six types of Attention Deficit Disorder. Encompassing medications, diet, supplements, exercise, and social support, this is the state of the art in ADD treatment. ADD sufferers often say, "The harder I try, the worse it gets." Dr. Amen tells them how to-for the first time-get well. To listen to an interview with Dr. Daniel Amen, check out www.TalktoTara.com

Healing America

by Roger Bulger

In this book a physician long involved in health policy issues at the national level presents a wise, achievable vision for American health care. From his wide ranging professional experiences and his personal experiences with three life threatening illnesses, he charts a uniquely American "epidemiology of hope" that flows from the country's vast medical research investments and technology transfer capabilities; challenges patients and health professionals alike to recognize a central decision making role for the patient on the healing team; and offers thought-provoking insights into physician-patient communication, the placebo effect, suffering, dealing with death and dying, and the nature of the social contract between those in the healing business and those seeking to be healed. Most important, after provocatively grading American health care from B-plus to D in relation to hope, mercy, justice, and autonomy, the book proposes a new metric, the Organizational Therapeutic Index (OTI), for assessing and improving our health care system.

Healing Ancestral Karma

by Steven D. Farmer

A breakthrough book on breaking destructive patterns. Is it possible that you have inherited the karma of your family members?

Bestselling New Age author Dr. Steven Farmer claims that each of us inherited karma. If you come from a long line of saints and humanitarians, your life is probably pretty sweet. However, if you are like most folks, your forebearers are probably a mixed bag of the good, the bad, and the ugly. As a result, you are living with some appalling karmic consequences. This is a book that shows readers how to free themselves from the negative cycles of the past, and how to tap into the ancient wisdom of their ancestors! No matter what your current spiritual philosophy or practice, you can tap into your ancestral spirit guide for guidance, teaching, and healing.

Healing and Recovery

by David R. Hawkins

These holistic lectures were first presented to a variety of recovery organizations and clinicians from diverse backgrounds. The emphasis is on recovery in its fullest sense - mental, physical, psychological and spiritual. To "heal" means to make whole, in contrast to "treating," which is limited and short-sighted. The author draws from a diverse clinical background of over 50 years as a leader in the field of psychiatry. This, and his own spiritual evolution, led to a series of over eight books on the subject of human consciousness itself. Our society lives with constant stress, anxiety, fear, pain, depression, worry and addiction. This book is a dedication to the relief of human suffering in its varous expressions. To truly heal is to "make whole" on all levels.

Healing at the Speed of Sound

by Alex Don Campbell Doman

At this very moment, you are surrounded by sound. Pause for a minute and try to listen to it all: the chatter of a passing conversation, the gentle whoosh of air vents, noise from a nearby street, someone turning the pages of a book, birds chirping in the trees. We rarely pay attention to everything we hear, but every noise in our environment has the ability to change our mood, decrease our productivity, even affect our health. While sound can heal, both emotionally and physically, it can also hurt us. In this engaging book, bestselling author and music expert Don Campbell (The Mozart Effect®) teams up with Alex Doman, a specialist in the practical application of sound, to show how we can use music and silence throughout our day to not only change how we feel but alter how we physically function. The authors delve into more than a decades' worth of research, from studies on aging to groundbreaking brain science, in order to illustrate how noise affects us for better and for worse. Walking readers through every aspect of their daily lives -- from the morning commute to getting a restful night's sleep -- Don and Alex provide practical advice and exercises so you can create perfect soundtracks for every task, combining music you already love with new favorites. In addition, the authors share nearly one hundred active links to music, video, and downloads in the book that help support their advice and show how others use the inspiring force of music to improve their lives. Combining the joy of music with the strength of science, Healing at the Speed of Sound(tm) will set you on the path to a full, rich, and truly harmonious life.

Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection

by John E. Sarno

Healing Back Pain promises permanent elimination of back pain without drugs, surgery, or exercise. It should have been titled Understanding TMS Pain, because it discusses one particular cause of back pain--Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS)--and isn't really a program for self-treatment, with only five pages of action plan (and many more pages telling why conventional methods don't work). According to John E. Sarno, M.D., TMS is the major cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulders, buttocks, and limbs--and it is caused not by structural abnormalities but by the mind's effort to repress emotions. He's not saying that your pain is all in your head; rather, he's saying that the battle going on in your mind results in a real physical disorder that may affect muscles, nerves, tendons, or ligaments. An injury may have triggered the disorder, but is not the cause of the amount or intensity of the resulting pain. According to Sarno, the mind tricks you into not facing repressed emotion by making you focus on pain in the body. When this realization sinks in ("and it must sink in, for mere intellectual appreciation of the process is not enough"), the trick doesn't work any more, and there's no need for the pain. (Healing Back Pain should not be used for self-diagnosis. Always consult a physician for chronic or acute back pain.) --Joan Price

Healing Breath

by Ruben L. Habito

Healing our wounded Earth is not unrelated to healing our own personal wounds. The pains of the Earth and those of the individuals making up our Earth community cannot be separated. Thus the healing of our individual lives can become the basis of the healing of Earth. This book sheds light on Zen as a spiritual path that leads to healing - in the personal, social, and ecological dimensions of our being. If you are seeking a form of spiritual practice that addresses all three of these dimensions or simply seeking to deepen your understanding of the Zen path, it is written for you. If instead of fragmentation, disorientation, and vacuity, you seek wholeness, groundedness, and integrity in your life, it is written for you. Perhaps you, too, have come to realize that our global community is in a sad state of affairs, that we need to radically change how we live and relate to one another and to the Earth. You may already be engaged in some form of social or ecological action addressing these issues-and you may feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task. If you've been tempted to pessimism or have thrown up your hands in despair when your best efforts don't seem to make a dent, this book is for you, Healing Breath offers a way to integrate a spiritual path with active, socio-ecological engagement as the ground. This book also addresses another set of questions: can a Christian genuinely practice Zen? How is Zen practice compatible with a Christian faith commitment? To fully engage in a Zen practice, what kind of belief system is presupposed or required? How can spiritual practice in an Eastern tradition inform Christian life and understanding? In the process of describing the Zen way of life, Healing Breath will consider various Christian expressions, symbols, and practices - not as an apologetic for that belief system, but to show how they, too, point to the transformative and healing perspectives and experiences provided by Zen.

The Healing Cell

by Max Gomez Robin L. Smith Tomasz Trafny

THE HEALING CELL is an easy to read, carefully researched, and clear-eyed view of medicine many decades in the making that is now paying off with treatments that repair damaged hearts, restore sight, kill cancer, cure diabetes, heal burns, and stop the march of such degenerative diseases as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig's disease. The emotionally and intellectually stimulating stories throughout the book dramatically illustrate that stem cell therapies can change the way we live our lives after being afflicted by a disease or trauma. The book is the result of a unique collaboration between the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture and the Stem for Life Foundation. It includes a special address by His Holiness Benedict XVI, urging increased support and awareness for advancements in adult stem cell research.
