<B>Addictive Behaviour in Children and Young Adults </B><I> The Struggle for Freedom</I>, GOLDBERG, RAOUL
1 Addictive Behaviour in Children and Young Adults The Struggle for Freedom
0863158730 / 9780863158735 2012 Paperback 
Addiction is one of the most critical problems of our modern world, affecting children as much as adults. We face not only a widespread dependency on illicit substances, but also addictions to food, beverages, cigarettes and alcohol, as well as electronic gadgetry, online social networks, and entertainment media within a culture of violence, along with excessive and unhealthy sexual practices. This book explores the overall health consequences of addictive behaviour in children and young people, as well as its underlying causes. Drawing on anthroposophical insights, the author sees the child holistically as body, soul and spirit on a developmental journey from newborn to adult. He examines specific addictions through case histories taken from his clinical practice, and offers a tried and tested method to understand and manage each individual child or young person who succumbs to such dependencies. This book will be of value to parents, teachers and health professionals who work with children and adolescents; to young people and adults caught up in unhealthy addictive behaviour; and to all those who wish to understand better their own human nature.

<B>Animal Pharm </B><I> One Man's Struggle to Discover the Truth About Mad Cow Disease and Variant CJD</I>, PURDEY, MARK,  PURDEY, NIGEL
2 Animal Pharm One Man's Struggle to Discover the Truth About Mad Cow Disease and Variant CJD
1905570112 / 9781905570119 2007 Paperback 
Mark Purdey's life changed one day in 1984 when a Ministry of Agriculture inspector told him he must administer a toxic organophosphate pesticide to his dairy herd. Passionately committed to organic farming and convinced of the harmful effects of chemicals in the environment, he refused to comply. 'It was as if my whole life became focused', he explained later. Before they had a chance to prosecute, Purdey took the Ministry to court and won his case. These experiences led him to challenge the orthodox line on the origins of Mad Cow Disease and its human counterpart variant CJD. Could the insecticide used in the official programme have precipitated the spread of the disease?Purdey's quest to discover the truth was hampered at every turn by government bureaucracies and self-serving scientific cliques who sought to smear and marginalize him. Dogged by dirty tricks and forced to work alone as something of a scientific sleuth, he struggled to reveal hidden interests and dangerous secrets. His supporters included many members of the public, as well as Prince Charles and the poet Ted Hughes. The latter wrote to him expressing 'a million congratulations'.Increasingly sceptical of the official narrative, Purdey was certain that toxic environmental factors would provide answers, and so embarked on a self-funded worldwide odyssey to investigate.
"Animal Pharm" follows him on these eco-detective trails to locations as diverse as Iceland, Sardinia, Colorado and Australia. Purdey uncovers contamination from industry, munitions, pesticides, nuclear experiments and natural geology, linking these with the emergence of a range of neurodegenerative diseases. His research is at once compelling and disturbing, helping to create a paradigm shift in our understanding of the relationship of pollutants to disease and health.

<B>Anthroposophical Approach to Medicine Vol. 1 </B><I> An Outline of a Spiritual Scientifically Oriented Medicine: vol. 1</I>, HUSEMANN, FRIEDRICH,  WOLFF, OTTO,  ET AL,  LUBORSKY, P.
6 Anthroposophical Approach to Medicine Vol. 1 An Outline of a Spiritual Scientifically Oriented Medicine: vol. 1
0880100311 / 9780880100311 1983 Hardback 
Today's medicine is strongly influenced by natural science, which focuses entirely on the material nature of reality. Molecular biology has become the foundation of modern medicine with the result that today's medical industry chases after technology to solve all its problems. In the process it is losing its own essence as it moves into fields increasingly alien to human nature as a whole.

Nevertheless, many doctors are beginning to reexamine this exclusive worldview in favor of a more wholistic approach to healing. To this end, anthroposophical medicine encompasses a wide range of healing modalities, including orthodox, allopathic medicine.

The Anthroposophical Approach to Medicine explores the body's relationship to soul and spirit on the basis of Rudolf Steiner's insights into the activities of the spiritual world. Edited by doctors Friedrich Husemann and Otto Wolff, this book invites us to an in-depth view of a true alternative to materialistically oriented medicine. Chapters include essays on childhood development and diseases; the disorders of old age; neuroses and psychological imbalances; pharmacology; healing plants; biochemistry and pathology; blood-work; and special diagnostic techniques.

This first of a multi-volume series is an invaluable tool to all who want to extend the practice of medicine to include the whole human being.

<B>Autism </B><I> A Holistic Approach</I>, DR MARGA HOGENBOOM AND BOB WOODWARD
13 Autism A Holistic Approach
1782500006 / 9781782500001 20002013 
Educating and caring for an autistic child is a severely difficult task, too often associated with frustration and disappointment. As a result, the inner development of children with autism is at times considered to be beyond the reach of parents and carers.

This book challenges that assumption, exploring case studies where therapy based on a holistic approach has resulted in marked improvements in the autistic child's behaviour and social integration. With an extended holistic programme, autistic children discover inner self-awareness and self-recognition, leading to first steps in relationships and social skills.

The authors describe in detail their own practical experiences, as well as the findings of other experts in the field. This new third edition covers recent developments in diagnostic methods and approaches to treatment, including new case studies and a new chapter looking at the sensory aspect of autism and Sensory Integration Therapy.

Well-researched and movingly written, this book has an essential, positive message for all those involved in the care and education of autistic children.

<B>Awakening Beauty </B><I> The Dr. Hauschka Way</I>, KURZ, SUSAN WEST,  MONTE, TOM
14 Awakening Beauty The Dr. Hauschka Way
1905570163 / 9781905570164 2008 Paperback 
full colour throughout
In a culture that idealizes, youthful looks and encourages elaborate makeovers or even surgery to achieve them, the idea of natural beauty is often all but ignored. But, true beauty is within reach for women of any age, without submitting to needles or knives. The secret is nurturing beauty from the inside as well as on the surface, caring for both body and soul in a way that will naturally result in the smooth skin and radiant glow of good health, whether one is eighteen or eighty. A-list celebrities, professional makeup artists, and Hollywood stylists have long embraced Dr. Hauschka's botanical products, attracted by their extraordinary results and the company's thirty-five-year commitment to purity, therapy and luxury. Now the same extraordinary results are available to the rest of us through a rejuvenating prescription for healing.In "Awakening Beauty", Susan West Kurz, president of Dr. Hauschka, Inc., USA, and a long-time devotee of the company's products, offers readers a transformative programme grounded in Dr. Hauschka's key principles of natural ingredients and working with the body's rhythms.
Her suggestions, when followed, naturally restore healthy, radiant skin and a sense of peace and well-being, and can even result in weight loss. "Awakening Beauty" outlines a series of achievable lifestyle changes that can dramatically improve appearance in a single month. First and foremost, Kurz describes how using organically grown and mindfully harvested products can have a positive impact on the body and skin. While simple dietary changes begin to repair and renew the body, the complementary use of meditation, massage, and exercise enhances good health inside and out.Kurz's holistic approach is founded on an understanding of the body's own natural rhythms, using them to direct the way each of us receives and responds to subtle cravings for nutrition and care. By recognizing exactly how skin behaves and how it responds to other parts of the body, we can use specific practices to improve the way we care for our skin and improve our overall health. "Awakening Beauty" includes detailed advice on the most effective ways to wash, tone and moisturize skin using home-made products, as well as tips on how to critically assess skin care claims and break unhealthy habits.
Meal plans, meditation techniques, advice on addressing specific skin conditions and an extensive collection of recipes complete this remarkable story. In just thirty days you can transform your skin and bring forth a natural, glowing beauty that is truly your own.

<B>Beyond the Medical Meltdown </B><I> </I>, ZIEVE, ROBERT J, M.D.,  ZIEVE, MD ROBERT
16 Beyond the Medical Meltdown
0880105720 / 9780880105729 2006 Paperback / softback 
Beyond the Medical Meltdown demonstrates that there is enough quality health care and enough money to pay for it, that more drugs and surgery is not necessarily better, and that the present health care quandary does not need to be the way it is. But to see this and to change health care will require enough people to wake up, think outside the box, and take action. We are on a threshold. Health care as we have known it is dying. What we have come to see as "normal" medicine is not "healthy" medicine. To quote Dr. John Abramson of Harvard, we have an "overdo$ed America." Health care today is a manipulated market, not a free market. It is neither effective nor affordable for most people in the United States. In both the public sector and the private business world, it is a top-down, over-controlled system. This must change. Dr. Robert Zieve details how to create a bottom-up approach, which is necessary if health care is going to work for all of us.

<B>Blessed by Illness </B><I> </I>, MEES, L.F.C.
17 Blessed by Illness
0880100540 / 9780880100540 1983 Paperback 
The prevailing attitude in modern medicine is that illness should not exist. Consequently, millions of research dollars pour each year into medical science and technology in the hope of eradicating various sicknesses and diseases. Patients and doctors alike suffer the terrible consequences of this impossible quest for material perfection. Yet, there is an alternate view-that human beings and human evolution are great enough to include "illness" as an essential part of existence. In the first part of Blessed by Illness, the author traces the history of our changing concept of healing, from the so-called temple sleep of ancient Egypt-when spiritual science tells us that human beings still had a living connection with the spiritual hierarchies-through the herbal lore of ancient Greece and the healings of Christ, to the rise of modern medicine, based primarily on treating symptoms. The practice of modern medicine focuses merely on removing discernable symptoms and ailments. The author, however, asserts that this does not really heal at all. Rather, true healing considers the whole human being.
And, to do this, doctors must learn the language of our natural, healing life forces, which affect not only the body, but also nature and the greater cosmos. From this perspective, illness is actually a gift, a blessing that urges both patient and doctor to work together with our illnesses for the sake of something infinitely greater-true healing. Blessed by Illness is a powerful introduction to "alternative" methods of healing.

<B>Brain Is a Boundary </B><I> A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia</I>, DREIER, ALEXANDER, INTRODUCTION BY  ARTHUR ZAJONC
18 Brain Is a Boundary A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia
1584209976 / 9781584209973 
"Dreier’s words dance along the ledge where reality and imagination converge."
- Carolyn Jourdan, author of Heart in the Right Place and Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring

This unique volume explores the experience of the "boundaries" in consciousness that permeate our lives - for instance, between sleeping and waking, language and reality, life and death, lover and beloved, observer and observed. We often take such boundaries for granted. But there is one boundary that most of us are spared: the boundary between reality and delusion, sanity and madness. This little book touches upon all of these thresholds in a singular way.

The author, a poet, comedian, and student of consciousness, finds himself gradually slipping from observing and noting such boundaries to crossing over from one world to another: from the world of ordinary, if enhanced, intuitive or poetic reality and perception to that of Lewy body dementia. The Brain Is a Boundary records his journey.

These fifty-two poems - along with an introduction by Arthur Zajonc, former President of the Mind-Life Institute, an afterword by Bradley Boeve, a renowned specialist in neurology, and an essay by the author recounting his Lewy body experiences in prose - constitute a remarkable and unique testimony that gives voice to an aspect of human experience that is all too often mute and ignored.


“Alexander Dreier is a poet. To me, he is in the company of poets like e.e. cummings, who explores mystery with wit, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, who celebrates ‘all things counter, spare, original, strange.’ As a poet, he is brilliant, funny, original. His work is magical, mystical, and everywhere compassionate and witty. He takes us into darkness and gives us night vision. He is a bringer of light. His poems are the stuff of literature—the kind that changes and enlarges the vision of the reader. Unforgettable.” —Pat Schneider, author of Writing Alone and With Others and How the Light Gets In: Writing as a Spiritual Practice

“Lewy body disease is complex, with a myriad of symptoms that can be challenging to treat and manage. These beautifully written poems are an eloquent, inspiring example of resilience and creativity in the face of this life-changing illness.” —Jennifer Rose V. Molano, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

<B>Cancer Recovery Guide </B><I> 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health</I>, CHAMBERLAIN, JONATHAN
19 Cancer Recovery Guide 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health
1905570392 / 9781905570393 2008 Paperback 
In Europe and the USA we have a 40-50 percent chance of getting cancer at some time in our lives. So what do you do if you are diagnosed with the disease? The harshness of orthodox treatments (surgery, radiation and chemotherapy) are well-known. Their use is widespread, but their results are not impressive. Faced with these options, informed patients are increasingly seeking out alternative or complementary strategies to take control of their own healing. This book provides an overview of them. Jonathan Chamberlain watched his wife suffer and eventually die - both from her cancer and from the direct effects of the orthodox treatments she had undergone. This experience led him on a journey in search of other methods of overcoming cancer. What he discovered stunned him. There are cures out there - dozens of them - many offering very good chances of recovery. In "Cancer Recovery Guide" Chamberlain presents 15 simple, practical strategies for becoming well again. These strategies are grouped in three families: those relating to the mind and the emotions (did you know stress makes cancers more aggressive?)
; those relating to the health of the whole body (cancer cannot survive in a tissue environment that is truly healthy); and, those that focus on directly attacking the cancer tumours. The personal stories cited throughout this book testify to the curative possibilities of the strategies presented.

JONATHAN CHAMBERLAIN was brought up in Ireland and Hong Kong, where he lived for many years working as a teacher and writer. His previous works include Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide, and his website on cancer-related issues is href=www.fightingcancer.com>www.fightingcancer.com. He has also written Chinese Gods, An Introduction to Chinese Folk Religion and King Hui, the man who owned all the opium in Hong Kong. Jonathan is also the founder of two charities: The Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association and Mental Handicap Network China Ltd.
