Radical changes are afoot in medicine as we build stronger bridges between science and spirituality. In CONSCIOUS MEDICINE Gill Edwards explains that mind and body are inseparable and that emotions are crucial in health and disease. Her new approach to healthcare is based on the latest research into the transformative power of consciousness, energy and the bodymind. She explains how, when you break your old habits of thought, you can not only reverse disease processes and heal injuries but also attract more positive events and circumstances into your life. Chapters cover 'miracles' in health and why our current medical model is limiting, how negative thoughts activate the stress response in the body which eventually makes us ill, how the body speaks to us symbolically through symptoms and illness, how to break free from limiting patterns and create a new health-full future. Always thought-provoking and inspiring, this is an accessible, practical and joyous book.

Don’t let an autoimmune disorder leave you torn apart—learn to mend from the inside out. The occurrence of autoimmune illnesses has spiked dramatically over the last forty years. MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia are plaguing people worldwide. The suffering is vast, and the dependency on medication and the amount of physician care involved are overwhelming the health-care system. Most disturbing is that people do not necessarily heal from diseases like lupus or chronic fatigue syndrome—they merely manage their disability. Katina I. Makris, veteran natural health-care practitioner and former sufferer of CFS, fibromyalgia, and Lyme, carefully explains the mechanisms at play with autoimmune illness. “The body is not compartmentalized into illness symptomology, but is integrated and whole; the mind-body-spirit are entwined as one, searching for balance or homeostasis,” she writes. With clear insight into our seven energy chakra centers and the correlation to our bodily systems and specific emotional interplay, Autoimmune Illness and Lyme Disease Recovery Guide is a manual and workbook, educating readers on the role of Integrative Medicine and dietary and lifestyle management for optimizing recovery potentials, as well as how to ignite the mind-body healing pathway. Makris shows us how to attune to the innate healing gifts we all bear. Instead of being fragmented and dependent on outside sources such as drugs and doctors, the tools Makris offers teach us how to mend ourselves—because when we are whole, we are well.

In August of 2012, amidst the magnificent mountains of Whistler British Columbia Canada, Stephanie Banks, misjudged her surroundings and narrowly avoided death as her body and bike collided with a rock wall before falling into the rocky crevasse below. As her body lay in the gully, her spirit united with her guardian Ruby where she experienced her life and the universe from another perspective. After her encounter with Ruby she decided to return to her life and found herself back in her injured body with no immediate memory of her journey. The extraordinary events that transpired during her recovery will restore your need to feel and experience all that this vast universe has to offer. You will feel a renewed sense of self as you are led down a path of self-discovery, re-aligning with who you really are as opposed to who society expects you to be. As she was forced to sit and be still she began to put the words she was hearing to the pages of her journal. These profound words of wisdom originating from ancient knowledge will encourage you to re-examine your approach to life and all that is. Stephanie’s compelling true stories combined with messages from the non-physical realm will bring depth, insight and clarity into your life. Times are changing, we are all one and fostering faith in yourself as the artist of your own creation are the underlying themes that will ignite the passion within while paving the way to your own true path. A Soulful Awakening is the gateway to transforming a life of mediocrity to that of an empowered awakened soul.

Around the world communities that have suffered the trauma of unspeakable violence--in Liberia, Somalia, West Africa, Columbia, and elsewhere--are struggling to recover and reconcile, searching for ways not just to survive but to heal. In When Blood and Bones Cry Out, John Paul Lederach, a pioneer of peace-building, and his daughter, Angela Jill Lederach, show how communities can recover and reconnect through the power of making music, creating metaphors, and telling their extraordinary stories of suffering and survival. Instead of relying on more common linear explanations of healing and reconciliation, the Lederachs demonstrate how healing is circular, dynamic, and continuing, even in the midst of ongoing violence. They explore the concept of "social healing," a profoundly important intermediary step between active warfare and reconciliation. Social healing focuses on the lived experience of those who have suffered protracted violence and their need to give voice to that experience, both individually and collectively. Giving voice, speaking the unspeakable, in words and sounds that echo throughout traumatized communities, can have enormous healing power. Indeed, the Lederachs stress the remarkable effects of sound and vibration through tales of Tibetan singing bowls, Van Morrison's transcendent lyrics, the voices of mothers in West Africa, and their own personal journeys. And they include inspiring stories of transformation: a mass women's protest movement in Liberia that forces leaders to keep negotiating until a peace agreement is signed; elders in Somalia who walk between warring clans year after year to encourage dialogue; former child soldiers who run drum workshops and grow gardens in refugee camps; and rape victims in Sierra Leone who express their pain in poetry. With equal measures of insight and compassion, When Blood and Bones Cry Out offers a promising new approach to healing traumatized communities.

With the phenomenal growth of Alcoholics Anonymous & the vast number of other 12-Step programs that have evolved from it, the "recovery movement" has attained epic status. People are "recovering" from everything from overeating to sexual addictions - most of them engaging in the 12-steps in order to heal. Those experts that have attained a degree of fame, the "Recovery Stars," get thousands of dollars for speaking about their own "recovery" experiences. The recovery movement has become a billion dollar industry & a major facet of our current culture. Recovery is a subculture of shared values, the highest & noblest of which is "serenity." Recovery is not only proposed as a means of conquering an addition, but also a way of saving your life & achieving a higher level of being. In this detailed, well-researched book, however, author Andrew Meacham questions the processes that the 12-Step programs & in fact, the entire recovery movement employ. Why does the medical profession qualify all these addictions as "diseases," & why is the insurance industry so quick to pay for treatment? Meacham attempts to answer these questions & many more that the recovery movement raises. He attempts to define addiction & disease, & cites various studies used to support recovery idealogy, pointing out the misapplication of their results that often leads to over generalization & false claims. He discusses the paradox between the "written word" of individuality within the recovery movement & the unwritten universal stories that recovery gurus use to take away the individual's power.
