Sex Talks to Girls - A Memoir (Paperback): Maureen Seaton Sex Talks to Girls - A Memoir (Paperback)
Maureen Seaton
R324 R262 Discovery Miles 2 620 Save R62 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Sex Talks to Girls chronicles the outward antics of a woman on an inward journey to self through the routes of religion, sex, sobriety, and kids. Recasting herself in this memoir as ""Molly Meek,"" Maureen Seaton interprets the emergence of Molly's identity in luxurious and very funny prose. Molly alternately finds herself in the surprising company of winos, swingers, and drag kings; in love with Jesus H. Christ and a butch named Mars; in charge of two children; writing stories that shrink painfully to poems without her permission; and incapable of figuring out how she landed in any of these predicaments. She is, by turns, a little saint, a Stepford wife, a bi-mom, and a femme with super powers. Her transformation from near-nun to full-fledged sexual being, accidentally becoming conscious in the process and delighting in the spree is the story of a life set on play and a woman heroically committed to seeing it through.

Kara M. Kelly, Elena J. Ladas
R692 Discovery Miles 6 920 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Although 1.4 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year, few reliable resources are currently available to meet the increasing interest of cancer patients for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) techniques to manage the side effects of cancer treatment. An interactive, hands-on resource guide, this unique handbook reviews the applications of specific CAM therapies in the management of symptoms and side effects commonly encountered during cancer treatment. This handbook seeks to provide the patient undergoing cancer treatment with a comprehensive set of CAM self- care techniques, including Chinese medicine, acupressure, reflexology, massage therapy, aromatherapy, yoga, and nutritional and herbal counseling that do not require visiting with a CAM provider. Organized alphabetically, each side effect chapter reviews both the conventional medicine and Chinese medicine perspective on the development and management of the side effect and reviews the applicable CAM therapies to help ameliorate the condition, referencing the pictorially descriptive appendix, organized by CAM treatment. This book can be used as a reference resource and does not have to be read from front to back. To help guide the patient who is considering CAM use while receiving cancer treatment, communication with healthcare providers and practical considerations are also reviewed. This handbook seeks to address some of the more common side effects experienced by people undergoing cancer treatment and answers questions like: * How can I relieve the nausea I have after my chemotherapy infusion? * What can I do to alleviate the constipation I am experiencing? * Why am I feeling so fatigued and how can I get more energy? * With certain chemotherapy agens I have been getting tingling in my hands, which the doctors tell me is peripheral neuropathy. Is there an essential oil or massage technique that could help minimize the sensations?

Blotto Botany is a gorgeous little book of medicinal cordials created by herbalist and witchy healing expert Spencre McGowan. Blotto Botany was originally a zine that swept the indie circuit, and we are now turning it into a full-length book with nods to the original design. Inside, readers and herbalism practitioners will find 40 cordial recipes organized by season, each with their own healing properties. Soothe Yourself Tonic, for instance, soothes the nerves after a hard day with gentle lemon balm and rose petals. Lovers' Lip, by contrast, contains stimulating damiana and elderflower, the perfect recipe for "one, two, or few." Other recipes include: Lilac Wine Douglas Fir Tipsy Oh, Mary! (Bloody Mary) Champagne Strawberries Tulsi Me Tulsi Dandelion Swag Blackberry Ginger Carmelite Water Drunk in Love Sommarvatten Blotto Botany also comes with recipes for medicinal shrubs and syrups, as well as details on plant lore, wild crafting, crystals, and the use of red wine vs. white wine in infusions. The design and package of Blotto Botany also sets it apart as a truly unique work-each page is a four color collage and some photography, all created by the author, and all the recipes are written in her own handwriting. This is one of the most special packages on the market place-our goal was to capture the look and feel of the bespoke original zine, and in so doing, we have created a cocktail book that whispers of homespun plant magic.

Bring your body into balance with over 100 healing recipes for a modern Ayurvedic lifestyle. The ancient science of Ayurveda teaches that food is divine medicine with the power to heal--but the best foods for one person may not be beneficial to another. Unlike many diets with rigid, one-size-fits-all guidelines, Ayurveda is a lifestyle that recognizes the ever-changing needs of each individual. Join author Sahara Rose on a journey to wellness and discover how to eat according to your body's specific needs. Identify your Dosha, or mind-body type, and find out what foods are best for your body. Learn how changes in season and climate affect your digestion and how to adjust what you eat accordingly. Rather than focusing on calories, you'll focus on food qualities. Rather than focusing on macronutrients, you'll focus on tastes--and you'll feel better than ever. Fall in love with cooking as you explore more than 100 plant-based, gluten- and dairy-free recipes for every meal of the day, including contemporary twists on classic Ayurvedic cuisine, such as turmeric-ginger kitchari and gut-healing seaweed broth. Packed with practical guidance and beautiful photography, Eat Feel Fresh integrates traditional Ayurvedic wisdom with contemporary nutritional science, and invites you to change your relationship with food and connect with your highest self. "Sahara Rose is a millennial thought-leader who is taking the torch of Ayurveda and burning it brightly. This is the second book of hers I have had the pleasure to introduce and an example of her dedication to modernizing Ayurveda so its wisdom can transcend time. Let it inspire you to make food choices that serve not only your body, but also your spirit." --Deepak Chopra, MD "Eat Feel Fresh provides a much-needed plant-based solution to Ayurvedic nutrition that the world has been waiting for." --Mark Hyman, MD New York Times best-selling author "Sahara Rose brings the perfect combination of intelligence and accessibility to her new book, Eat Feel Fresh.

However, the number of women interested in introducing aromatherapy to their personal health care dwarfs the number of clinicians formally trained in it. As a result, large numbers of women self-treat with aromatherapy, which can increase risk factors particularly during pregnancy and lactation. Condensing thorough research into concise, easy-to-digest language, this scientific evidence-based guide enables women's healthcare professionals and aromatherapists to quickly determine the safest and most effective way to apply aromatherapy in any given situation. The perfect bedside clinical guide for busy professionals, it covers 20 essential oils and their uses in women's health, from pregnancy to menopause. Readers will come away equipped with new tools to improve their patients' comfort and wellbeing, with the confidence of drawing from a reliable base of clinical evidence.

After returning from a tour of duty during the war in Afghanistan, Alex Seymour needed a way to cope with the extremes he experienced as a member of the Royal Marine Commandos, losing 7 men in his unit, and having his best friend critically injured by a Taliban bomb. Drawing upon his pre-deployment experiences, Alex knew that entheogens could help him release his fears and traumas. But he also knew that simply taking psychedelics wasn't enough--he needed ceremony, something sacred to draw meaning from his experiences, to help him reassess not only the war and his role in it, but his entire life. So he set out for the Amazon in search of the hallucinogenic brew known as ayahuasca and a shaman to guide him.

The ultimate guide to maximizing the body's ability to heal for anyone who is planning for or recovering from surgery, injury or pregnancy.

By understanding the body's marvelous ability to repair and rebuild itself, we can prepare and fine-tune our bodies to optimize our healing potential post surgery. THE RAPID RECOVERY HANDBOOK will provide an understanding of the healing process and the essential tools to make sure self-healing mechanisms are in top working order, covering every repair-related detail a patient needs to know from the planning-for-surgery period through the late stages of recovery at home. Written for a variety of patients dealing with a wide scope of surgeries and injuries, THE RAPID RECOVERY HANDBOOK reveals three practical factors that account for the individualized nature of recovery: nutrition and botanical support (the primary way to prepare for surgery and to enhance healing from injury), physical support (including such beneficial therapies as massage, acupuncture, Reiki, hydrotherapy and others) and mind-body support (including hypnosis and mindful breathing to address the stress response). Complete with a foreword by Dr. Mehmet Oz, the book also has several appendices for lay and science-savvy readers alike.

Imagine waking up feeling refreshed, strong, and vibrant, with your hormones in balance and your body nourished, stable, and supported on both the emotional and physical levels. For the millions who are grappling with rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, inflammatory bowel disease, type one diabetes, and numerous other autoimmune conditions, this vision seems so distant from the daily reality that it seems an impossibility. In spite of increasing knowledge and awareness, the causes and effects of autoimmune conditions are often misunderstood, and the connection between inner well-being and physical health is not fully explored. As an acupuncturist and herbalist with over 15 years of clinical experience, Aimee Raupp, M.S., L.Ac., has treated a variety of autoimmune conditions, as well as managed her own. Her Body Belief Plan bridges the gap between our internal and external healing to present a holistic and practical approach based on the core pillars of reconnecting to ourselves, renewing our beliefs, and reawakening our health and avoiding body disconnect, behavioral sabotage, and environmental toxins. As you follow Raupp's two-phase Body Belief diet and Body Belief lifestyle roadmap, your whole self will begin to thrive, both inside and out. Raupp guides you step by step through a 12-week diet plan, weekly Body Belief guide, shopping lists, menus, meditations, mantras, and DIY and commercial suggestions for bath, beauty, and home products for self-care. With warmth and sensitivity, Raupp explores how our beliefs dictate our behavior, which ultimately dictates our health. Every person deserves to feel good, and everyone is capable of making their optimal self a reality.
