Mistletoe is a parasitic evergreen plant that lives on trees such apple and elm. Modern complementary therapies for cancer increasingly make use of mistletoe preparations. However, because mistletoe grows on many different trees, the properties of the plant vary according to the host tree. For the first time, this book presents an important reference for practitioners on the characteristics of each type of mistletoe, and what kind of cancers they are best suited to treat. Thirteen host trees are described, covering all aspects from mythology and botany to homeopathy and flower essences. The author then pulls the various characteristics together to provide a unique guide to which patients might benefit most from the different types of mistletoe. The results will be useful not only in treating cancer but also in prevention. The book includes specific case-studies as well as notes on supplementary therapies using metals.

Millions of people suffer from autoimmunity whether they know it or not. The root cause of most weight gain, brain and mood problems, and fatigue, autoimmunity can take years for symptoms and a clear diagnosis to arise. Through years of research, Dr. Tom O'Bryan has discovered that autoimmunity is actually a spectrum, and many people experiencing general malaise are already on it. And while autoimmune diseases like Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and lupus have become the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer, many people affected are left in the dark. The good news is that many autoimmune conditions can be reversed. The Autoimmune Fix includes two comprehensive 3-week plans: In the first 3 weeks, readers will follow a Paleo- inspired diet during which they cut out gluten, sweets, and dairy - the three primary culprits behind autoimmunity. Once the dietary changes have been addressed, The Autoimmune Fix focuses on the other causes of autoimmunity, such as genetics, other dietary issues, and microbiome. The Autoimmune Fix provides a practical guide to navigating these increasingly common conditions to help readers feel better and develop a plan that will work for them.

What is energy healing? And why does it work?
For thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have used the body’s own energy ― which they call ‘qi’ ― to promote healing. Here, one of the world’s most sought-after acupuncturists sets out to understand the science behind this ancient practice.
Blakeway takes the reader on a journey from the Stanford and Princeton professors researching the physics of energy medicine, to a Qi Gong master from China who manifests healing herbs directly from her palm; and from the Harvard team studying the placebo effect, to a group of sceptical scientists who use hands-on healing to cure mammary cancer in mice. She also tells the story of how she discovered energy medicine and overcame her initial disbelief to become one of its leading practitioners.
From hard science to the spiritual and back again, Energy Medicine is a quest to find out why these alternative methods of healing are proving successful for thousands worldwide.
Full-colour laminated poster. Almost all natural medical traditions use the tongue for diagnosis. The tongue gives much information about vitality, physical condition and diseases. Its shape, colour, coating, outlines and surface tell the story of our health. The tongue does not lie. It is an objective tool for self-diagnosis and for healing and supporting other diagnostic methods. This chart is a good summary of many characteristic elements found in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
Does the world make you sick? If the distractions and distortions around you, the jarring colors and sounds, could shake up the healing chemistry of your mind, might your surroundings also have the power to heal you? This is the question Esther Sternberg explores in Healing Spaces, a look at the marvelously rich nexus of mind and body, perception and place. Sternberg immerses us in the discoveries that have revealed a complicated working relationship between the senses, the emotions, and the immune system. First among these is the story of the researcher who, in the 1980s, found that hospital patients with a view of nature healed faster than those without. How could a pleasant view speed healing? The author pursues this question through a series of places and situations that explore the neurobiology of the senses. The book shows how a Disney theme park or a Frank Gehry concert hall, a labyrinth or a garden can trigger or reduce stress, induce anxiety, or instill peace. If our senses can lead us to a "place of healing," it is no surprise that our place in nature is of critical importance in Sternberg's account. The health of the environment is closely linked to personal health. The discoveries this book describes point to possibilities for designing hospitals, communities, and neighborhoods that promote healing and health for all.
