In addition to the results of recent scientific research, Knishinsky also includes ethnobotanical information on the use of prickly pear cactus in treating obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, and skin ailments. A resource section details the natural food companies that supply prickly pear cactus and a chapter of recipes offers twenty-four traditional and modern dishes using the pads and fruit of the cactus.RAN KNISHINSKY is a professional health researcher and writer and is the founder of NutraConsulting, a consulting firm to the natural products industry.

Dr Martin's book provides a theoretical framework and specific progressive exercises in the Pilates environment in their work with those individuals who have asymmetries of the spine, ribcage and pelvis associated with conditions such as scoliosis. This book helps Pilates instructors who want to move beyond basic certification to work safely and effectively with those who have structural and functional asymmetries. The many musculoskeletal ramifications of spinal asymmetry are explained, based on relevant anatomy and current theories of causes of deformity, thus throwing light on an often confusing topic. A developed framework offers practical solutions that will further the body of knowledge in the specialized education of Pilates instructors by enabling them to learn a safe and systematic method of instructing those with scoliosis. This framework helps instructors administer individualized Pilates exercise progressions. These comprise: creating a client profile for the individual; developing concepts and considerations for effective exercise delivery and execution; and presentation of those exercise progressions. In addition, two important aspects not yet found within the Pilates field are addressed. The first is the importance of the significant role, outlining the scope of practice of the Pilates instructor in the care of those with spinal asymmetries. And secondly is to identify separate approaches necessary for differing populations at distinct times of life. Stages such as youth, and adult each require a certain approach. The decades of young adult, mid-life, and elder years present special challenges due to the co-morbidities associated with the adult with scoliosis.

A rare example of an African American woman writing in the early nineteenth century. This new edition places Sarah Mix (1832-1884) in the context of American religious history, and shows her influence on the emerging faith healing movement and other female healing evangelists, including Carrie Judd Montgomery and Maria Woodworth-Etter. The divine healing movement, also known as faith healing or faith cure was a significant phenomenon in American religion and culture in the late nineteenth century. More importantly, during this period of the divine healing movement, women occupied a central role as practitioners. Both the religious and secular press reported her ministry, which was so successful that physicians referred patients to her. In 1882 Sarah Mix published Faith Cures, and Answers to Prayer, which includes an account of her own healing of tuberculosis by a Methodist minister, letters of testimony from individuals who experienced her gift of healing, and press notices.

Alternative medicine therapies have evolved from the province of the hippy counterculture movement in the 1960s to be firmly established in mainstream healthcare in the 21st century. This book critcally examines the alternative medicine phenomenon by asking Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners what makes these therapies so appealing, drawing on comprehensive interviews and the author's longstanding participation in this field. Providing a wealth of information from both within the CAM community and around the CAM culture, this text explains the medical and economic sensation of alternative medicine, at once spiritual, medical, recreational and physical. It also examines different viewpoints on the subject from denouncements of alternative medicine as "the triumph of superstition over reason" to a "popular cultural phenomenon that fits the pleasure-seeking drive of consumerism with spiritual and neo-liberal undertones." "Complementary and Alternative Medicine" is essential reading for students and scholars of cultural studies, anthropology, sensory studies and sociology.
