The fear of death may translate into the desire for longevity. However, longevity is a true blessing only if it is coupled with good health. Healthiness, in today's expectation, is not simply a disease free state. Rather, it is very much a state of wellbeing and competence, both physically and socially. While Oriental medicine emphasizes on the promotion of physiological balance and internal balance as an integral requirement for longevity, other cultures also have various sophisticated concepts and orientations. This book successfully collates all the different views and approaches from Austria, Russia, China and Japan in the exploration of Health, Wellbeing, Competence and Aging.

Cancers are on the rise across the world. Except for viral-based cancers, overall cancers are diseases that may be preventable. This book looks at the many levels of determined, probable, and possible causation for several common cancers. These causes include realities found in culture, anthropology, sociology, politics, the environment, agriculture and food, beliefs, and the modern lifestyle. These realities are filtered through the perennial science of Chinese medicine - an ecological system of knowing and understanding the human body as it relates to the world around us.The book covers lung, colorectal, breast, prostate, and virally-caused cancers. It interweaves conventional medical knowledge of these cancers with modern realities of everyday life we all live, and with Chinese medicine interpretations and strategies for treating probable pre-cancerous conditions. This makes it a book that is useful for the practitioner of Chinese medicine. It is also useful for the patient suffering a cancer diagnosis in terms of survivorship and for other medical practitioners who wish to understand how integrated care for cancerous diseases and conditions may relate to Chinese medicine and prevention.The final chapters of the book are dedicated to finding answers for a cure for cancer through making connections between how we live, what we believe, the environment we are creating based on those beliefs, and the social and political mechanisms we now have in place that keep us from change and, therefore, from the cure for cancer.

The Perfect Guide for Beginner CBD/Hemp Users! Have you been looking for a healthy and easy way to de-stress, relieve anxiety, and achieve relaxation? Marijuana is a go-to for many in this situation, but what if you wanted all of these elements without the high? Enter CBD and hemp products. Maybe you're on the fence about trying CBD and hemp. Maybe you're nervous about its effects, or maybe you just don't know what to do with the products once you buy them. Did you know that most CBD that people purchase off the shelf at grocers or retail stores is strictly a hemp product? Often, these products also contains hemp seed oil, which is a culinary product that has been available on the shelf for many years. Many other retail consumer products contain hemp seed oil only and no CBD at all, actually. But that's okay, because both hemp seed oil and CBD oil have their own therapeutic or culinary value. Sandra Hinchliffe--creator of PosyandKettle.com, contributor to High Times, and author of three books about cannabis and CBD--can guide you through the types of products available to you in mainstream stores and how to use each one. Hinchliffe introduces the beginner CBD/hemp user to 75 different ways they can use the products they've purchased--no cannabis farming, dispensary visits, or DIY involved. These include: Smoothies Bowls Beverage Snacks and treats CBD spa products aromatherapy and more!

Modern Western Medicine (MWM) and Ayurveda/Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be considered two extreme paradigms to complex systems. The microscopic and reductionist approach of the West prevails in acute and single-gene conditions such as infection and Mendelian disorders. The macroscopic and holistic approach of the East potentially fares well at chronic and complex conditions such as obesity and ageing. The book serves three purposes: 1) to help MWM, Ayurveda and TCM professionals get acquainted with one another; 2) to help identify common grounds for MWM, Ayurveda and TCM, rather than blindly westernizing eastern medicines or vice versa; and 3) to help translate the complementarity of MWM and Ayurveda/TCM toward an integrative multi-component healthcare. To this end, we introduce theories and tenets of the three medicines. We use bioenergetics to reconcile West and East as ATP generation, prana and qi are central to MWM, Ayurveda and TCM. We discuss clinical trials of varying experimental rigors for the assessment of the scientific evidence for treatment effectiveness. We present complementary interventions for chronic disorders and ageing. We hold that a federal unity of therapies consisting of MWM, Ayurveda and TCM better serves the wellbeing of humankind.

Damo Mitchell; Foreword by Ole Saether
R493 Discovery Miles 4 930 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Dragon Dao-Yin exercises are a set of four short sequences designed to work with the subtle energies of the spine. Damo Mitchell teaches and explains the exercises in detail, within the context of a larger discussion of Dao Yin. He covers the theory, history and development of Dao Yin exercises in general, and the effects of the process which a student can go through if they practise them. He also explains the difference between Qi Gong and Dao Yin, including the qualitative differences, and their effects upon the body, as well as the concept of purging as opposed to nourishing or regulating, and how Chinese medical theory relates to Dao Yin training. One chapter is devoted to problems related to stagnation and the the flow of Qi, and covers the different causes and forms of stagnation (including the location of stagnation along the meridian pathways, stagnation in the Qi Men, and in the psyche), and the Chinese medical theory of the process of damage caused by stagnation. Later chapters look at breathing patterns and the extension of Yi, opening the joints, and rotating the bones and spine.The author also discusses stillness as the source of movement, and the philosophical significance of the Dragon and the pearl, as well as the means of hardwiring Dao Yin exercises into the energetic body. Central to the discussion is the concept of the spine, and how to wake it up. The Dragon exercises - Awakening, Swimming, Soaring and Drunken - are described in detail, with photographs and step-by-step instructions on each of the exercises as individual therapeutic exercises and as a form.

Widely recognized as one of the most powerful healing methods that have ever been developed, bioenergy healing is relatively easy to learn. Csongor's unique writing as if you were listening to him live at one of his seminars makes this comprehensive book on energy healing a light, yet very informative read. If you are a fast reader, you may learn to heal in only one day. By the end of the book, you will become a healer for a lifetime. Csongor Daniel was one of the first officially recognized bioenergy healers in the former Yugoslavia, trained by the legendary Zdenko Domancic. While his teacher has healed more than a million people, Csongor has no such ambitions. Instead, he would like to teach more than a million of you how to become healers yourselves. Bioenergy Healing will teach you how to feel and see the energy fields of the body and how to manipulate the energy in order to induce healing. QR codes throughout the book enable readers to see the techniques demonstrated in brief videos. Who needs Bioenergy Healing? Anyone who has ever dabbled in healing, but is still looking for the right method; people who read most books on energy healing, but are still puzzled by complicated approaches and explanations; individuals who want to learn energy healing, but are too busy to take months or years of courses; health professionals who want to add a new effective modality to their practices; parents and children who want to help their friends and family members reduce or eliminate pain and heal without drugs. In other words: everyone wanting to help others to heal.

R446 Discovery Miles 4 460 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Too many of us hold our physical, mental and emotional pain within our bodies, where it slows energy, manifests as tension and can have a damaging impact upon our health. In his new book, Noah Karrasch shows that wellbeing and healing come from the detangling of blocked emotions and the restoration of the free flow of energy through the body. Written for bodywork and manual therapy practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines, as well as other healers who want to expand their skills, this generously illustrated book explains how and where emotions and static energy are held in the body, and how they can be released and rebalanced in therapies that challenge bodymindcore awareness. It includes many new ideas and techniques: useful conversation starters to help practitioners encourage clients to self-identify their challenges, detailed explanations of myofascial release techniques and self-reflective exercises designed to first help the practitioner truly understand the process for him or herself, through his or her own body, in order to become a more empathetic and effective therapist. This important book will enable bodywork and manual therapy practitioners to work more confidently, and more intuitively, with their clients.
