What are the functions of mitochondria in the human body? Why might they stop working properly and what can happen as a result? How can personalized nutrition help to optimize mitochondrial function and prevent or address chronic conditions? This innovative book explores the incredibly complex biochemical roles of mitochondria in health and disease. When healthy, mitochondria provide us with ninety percent of our body's energy. When unhealthy, this can lead to many chronic and degenerative conditions including cancer and Alzheimer's disease. This guide helps practitioners to identify the mitochondrial dysfunction underlying a wide range of health complaints, and provides inspiration about relevant and emerging mitochondria-supportive dietary regimes and nutrients to explore within the model of personalized nutrition.

The Second Edition of this book is a rearranged and enriched version of the previous edition, composed of feedback and constructive comments from readers. Acupuncture is the most popular form of treatment in Chinese medicine. The theories and practice of acupuncture have been revised and rewritten to give readers a clear idea of how it works and when it is to be utilized. Botanicals, i.e. herbal medicine, form the major core of Chinese medicine practice. The potential of botanicals development is wide: from casting specific biological activities to preventive uses. Three new chapters are offered: (i) for the understanding of the biological activities of herbal medicine, (ii) the products produced from herbs for specific needs, and (iii) the individual's choice for what may suit him/her best. In this present era of information technology, readers should be guided on the use of the Internet and related areas in order to independently secure information for personal use and research needs. The last chapter is provided for this practical purpose.Since the publication of the First Edition, much development has occurred in the field of Chinese medicine. All the chapters have been updated and revised accordingly so that general readers, those looking for effective treatment, as well as those who want to serve their patients better, can have a reliable comprehensive reference.

The History of American Homeopathy - From Rational Medicine to Holistic Health Care (Hardcover): The History of American Homeopathy - From Rational Medicine to Holistic Health Care (Hardcover)
R1,099 Discovery Miles 10 990 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Although scorned in the early 1900s and publicly condemned by Abraham Flexner and the American Medical Association, the practice of homeopathy did not disappear. Instead, it evolved with the emergence of holistic healing and Eastern philosophy in the United States and today is a form of alternative medicine practiced by more than 100,000 physicians worldwide and used by millions of people to treat everyday ailments as well as acute and chronic diseases.

"The History of American Homeopathy" traces the rise of lay practitioners in shaping homeopathy as a healing system and its relationship to other forms of complementary and alternative medicine in an age when conventional biomedicine remains the dominant form. Representing the most current and up-to-date history of American homeopathy, readers will benefit from John S. Haller Jr.'s comprehensive explanation of complementary medicine within the American social, scientific, religious, and philosophic traditions.

The Art of Psychic Reiki - Developing Your Intuitive and Empathic Abilities for Energy Healing (Paperback): Lisa Campion The Art of Psychic Reiki - Developing Your Intuitive and Empathic Abilities for Energy Healing (Paperback)
Lisa Campion; Foreword by Rhys Thomas
R354 R295 Discovery Miles 2 950 Save R59 (17%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful, hands-on energy healing method from Japan that's been gaining in popularity over the last century-not only with bodyworkers and massage therapists in the West but also with medical professionals who can attest to its healing power. Born from the author's decades of experience with Reiki healing and her own methods, The Art of Psychic Reiki provides everything you need to know about this healing art, including the critical psychic development and empathy training that prepares healers to go out and do the work they were meant to do. If you're drawn to the healing art of Reiki, you might be a highly sensitive person, with high levels of empathy, intuition, and latent psychic abilities (a combination of intuition and inner knowing, plus the ability to connect with higher wisdom). And since Reiki is a form of energy healing, many new practitioners may experience what's called a psychic opening as they learn or practice. For this reason, it's important that every Reiki practitioner master the ability to navigate their empathic and psychic sensitivities while engaged in this work-and this book can help. Whether you're new to Reiki or you're a practitioner seeking to deepen your knowledge and enhance your skills, with this guide you'll learn how to use Reiki to heal yourself and others, cultivate and trust your natural intuition, develop your empathic and psychic abilities, work with your spirit guides, and ground and protect yourself as a practitioner of this sacred healing art.

'All things which have an effect will have a side effect' is true. People who propagate that homeopathy has no side effects are spreading wrong words about homeopathy. If a homeopathic medicine is prescribed wrongly or unnecessary repetition is given, it will certainly have some bad effect on the body. Some of these findings given by various stalwarts have been complied by Dr Kanodia and collected here for a quick review of cautions to be taken care of by a homeopathic practitioner.

How do you decide? This book provides a full range of perspectives on CAMS from patients and CAMS practitioners to conventional doctors who oppose the use of these alternative treatments because of the lack of evidence of efficacy and safety. Then there are the CAMS researchers, educators and regulators who view CAMS from different perspectives. The broad array of opinions build a complete picture of the issues for discerning readers to be adequately informed to make up their minds and draw their own conclusions.

Research shows that biochemical imbalances caused by nutritional deficiencies are a contributory factor in chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, auto-immune conditions and cancer. This handbook for practitioners explains how to identify and treat such biochemical imbalances in order to better understand and manage a patient's ill-health. The book examines a range of biochemical imbalances, including compromised adrenal or thyroid function, gastro-intestinal imbalances, immune system problems and sex hormone imbalances, and explains how and why such states occur. It pulls together a wide range of evidence to show how such imbalances are involved in the most common chronic diseases. It helps practitioners to understand how to identify the imbalances through appropriate case history taking and laboratory testing, and how to design and implement effective nutritional interventions. Developed by leading academics and practitioners in the fields of nutritional therapy and functional medicine, this evidence-informed approach can be used with all patients who present in clinic, regardless of whether or not they have a 'named medical condition'. In the final chapter, a case example illustrates how to use the theoretical information in the practice of treating patients with chronically compromised health. Biochemical Imbalances in Disease is an essential text for nutritional therapy practitioners, as well as for students, and will be welcomed by complementary and conventional healthcare practitioners alike.
