Highly sensitive people - or empaths - see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they're also the favoured prey of 'vampires' who feed off empaths' energy and disrupt their lives on every level. In Dodging Energy Vampires, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics and take back our own energy. You'll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others' energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognise the patterns of behaviour that mark these relationships, you'll be empowered to identify the vampires in your life too. In these pages, Dr Northrup opens up a toolbox full of techniques you can use to leave these harmful relationships behind; heal from the darkness they've cast over you, and let your own light shine.
On this revised CD (featuring enhanced audio and new introduction track), Dr Joe Dispenza walks you through You Are the Placebo Meditation 1: Changing Two Beliefs and Perceptions. After introducing the open-focus technique, he then moves you into the practice of finding the present moment. When you discover the sweet spot of the present moment and you forget about yourself as the personality you have always been, you have access to other possibilities that already exist in the quantum field. That's because you are no longer connected to the same body-mind, to the same identification with the environment, and to the same predictable timeline. In the present moment, the familiar past and the future literally no longer exist and you become pure consciousness - a thought alone. That is the moment that you can change your body, change your environment and even create a new timeline for your life!
This is full-color laminated poster. The first side of this chart shows the 'alarm points': acupuncture points on the torso that can be used in order to calm or stimulate the twelve organs and associated functions, as distinguished in Chinese medicine. The different pressure and massage techniques are also presented. The illustration on the back of the chart, shows 25 acupuncture points, the 'emergency points', along the meridians on the whole front of the body. Their exact location as well as the ailments for which they can be used are clearly explained. You will also find the point combinations allowing to quickly relieve a number of acute problems (asthma attack, insomnia, sore throat, diarrhoea, painful periods, toothache, cramps).
A homeopath is approached everyday by anxious parents, who have been advised by their doctors to have the tonsils of their children operated at the earliest. An average human being still prefers their children to get well without restoring to surgery. This is a useful treatise on the homeopathic treatment of enlarged tonsils. The book serves to develop the right concepts and approach. Pocket sized and really simple to comprehend, the entire account is both thought provoking and analytical. It includes a useful commentary on the homeopathic management of enlarged tonsils supplemented by case records & quotes from eminent homeopaths.
In 2010, Nick Polizzi did something unimaginable. He assembled a group of eight desperately ill patients from around the world and brought them into the heart of the Amazon rain forest to put the mysterious medicines of native shamans to the test. The healing journey that unfolded would change their lives - and his own - forever. In The Sacred Science, we join Nick as he explores these primordial traditions and learns firsthand what it takes to truly heal ourselves of physical disease, emotional trauma, and the sense of "lostness" that so many of us feel in these modern times. We venture into a place where the ordinary rules we live by, even survival instincts, don't apply - where "the only thing to do is to step forward and be ready for anything." Nick is not a guru or shaman; he is an ordinary guy who pieced together an illuminating journey, one experience at a time. In this riveting true story, we're shown the many layers that must be peeled away in order for us to find the truth of who we are and why we're here. This book is a bridge between the ashy, fast-moving modern world and the forgotten ways of a healthier, earth-connected ancestral past. You'll find practices and principles of native wisdom that you can put to use in your own life, and you'll gain a new understanding of what it means to heal. In the end, what will become of the eight patients who set out on this path with Nick? Will the exotic jungle medicines and harrowing rites of passage destroy them or give them a new lease on life?
Homeopathic medicine specialises in treating the unique individual that is YOU. By treating the whole person, mind and body, it is like having tailor made treatment specially designed for you, rather than something off the peg. Today quantum physics and nanotechnology can explain how homeopathy works and that it can be used to treat extremely serious conditions. There are also a number of recognisable biblical texts demonstrating its use. Homeopathic Science: The Christian and Quantum Connections explains all this clearly and shows that God thought it up first and refers to it in His Bible in a number of places.
This is a useful guide in understanding of colds in general with its pathology and consequences and an additional section on Epidemic Influenza or Grippe.

Everything you ever wanted to know about homeopathic practice and repertorization. A never before book that bridges the gap between Theory and Practice. Learn the secrets of clinical interview. This book is not intended to be a textbook, but would be of great help to the students and the beginners in practice, in understanding what homeopathic practice is all about and getting oriented to it. This book discusses the implementational aspects of homeopathic practice. Through this book I have tried to demonstrate the application of homeopathic principles to practice. The chapter on homeopathic physician will make the reader, especially fresh homeopathic graduate, aware of the attitude and the type of clinical training necessary for scientific homeopathic practice and the qualities that need to be cultivated if he wishes to be a successful (Hahnemannian) homeopath. It will also introduce him to various means of acquiring clinical knowledge. How to conduct case taking? This is a frequently asked question. Therefore, chapter on case taking deals with practical aspect of case taking, and is full of practical tips and hints. Case processing is another important part of homeopathic practice and I have tried to simplify the complexities involved in it. Clinical implications of the concept of totality have been focused upon in the chapter on totality. Choice of the right remedy is one of the most perplexing dilemmas, especially for a neophyte and hence it has been addressed in as clear terms as possible in the related chapter. The matter of Potency Selection has been dealt with scant attention in most of the homeopathic literature till now. As a result many students and beginners are in total dark with regards to various factors that need to be considered while selecting potency for any given case.

This could be the most important book you will read this year. Around the office at Chelsea Green it is referred to as the "pharmaceutical Silent Spring." Well-known author, teacher, lecturer, and herbalist Stephen Harrod Buhner has produced a book that is certain to generate controversy. It consists of three parts: 1. A critique of technological medicine, and especially the dangers to the environment posed by pharmaceuticals and other synthetic substances that people use in connection with health care and personal body care.2. A new look at Gaia Theory, including an explanation that plants are the original chemistries of Gaia and those phytochemistries are the fundamental communications network for the Earth's ecosystems.3. Extensive documentation of how plants communicate their healing qualities to humans and other animals. Western culture has obliterated most people's capacity to perceive these messages, but this book also contains valuable information on how we can restore our faculties of perception.The book will affect readers on rational and emotional planes. It is grounded in both a New Age spiritual sensibility and hard science. While some of the author's claims may strike traditional thinkers as outlandish, Buhner presents his arguments with such authority and documentation that the scientific underpinnings, however unconventional, are completely credible.The overall impact is a powerful, eye-opening expos' of the threat that our allopathic Western medical system, in combination with our unquestioning faith in science and technology, poses to the primary life-support systems of the planet. At a time when we are preoccupied with the terrorist attacks and the possibility ofbiological warfare, perhaps it is time to listen to the planet. This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the state of the environment, the state of health care, and our cultural sanity.

A leading authority explains the origins and history of Chinese medicine from its beginnings in antiquity to today. Paul U. Unschuld describes medicine's close connection with culture and politics throughout Chinese history. He brings together texts, techniques, and worldviews to understand changing Chinese attitudes toward healing and the significance of traditional Chinese medicine in both China and the Western world. Unschuld reveals the emergence of a Chinese medical tradition built around a new understanding of the human being, considering beliefs in the influence of cosmology, numerology, and the supernatural on the health of the living. He describes the variety of therapeutic approaches in Chinese culture, the history of pharmacology and techniques such as acupuncture, and the global exchange of medical knowledge. Insights are offered into the twentieth-century decline of traditional medicine, as military defeats caused reformers and revolutionaries to import medical knowledge as part of the construction of a new China. Unschuld also recounts the reception of traditional Chinese medicine in the West since the 1970s, where it is often considered an alternative to Western medicine at the same time as China seeks to incorporate elements of its medical traditions into a scientific framework. This concise and compelling introduction to medical thought and history suggests that Chinese medicine is also a guide to Chinese civilization.

This book is a translation of the original, in Dutch, brought about by the overwhelming demand of his English speaking students. Books have been written about herbs with a little astrology added, about outer planets with a little naturopathy added, and about the astrological symbolism of body parts and functions. But none of these books is really about classical medical astrology: practical diagnosis and treatment on the basis of charts. Medical astrology has always been an integral unity of astrological diagnosis and treatment based on the planetary positions. This integral and seamless unity is the central theme in this book, which picks up the thread of the great tradition which ended temporarily in seventeenth century England. It is now undergoing a revivial as modern astrologers rediscover the authenticity and value of the classical techniques.
