This book is based on a revered collection, long ago considered lost, of three-hundred-year-old Tibetan thangkas: elaborate paintings that portray a philosophy of healing based on Buddhist beliefs, Ayurvedic practices and ancient shamanic traditions. Rendered by Tibet's foremost traditional artist, Romio Shrestha, using the age-old techniques of painting with rich materials such as gold and lapis lazuli, these breathtaking works reward the minutest contemplation. The Tibetan Art of Healing is also a practical guide to our search for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. With insights into such 'contemporary' ailments as stress, allergies and heart disease, and chapters devoted to aspects of sexual alchemy, rejuvenation and Tantric yoga, this wide-ranging study is an unprecendented journey into health and transformation, an astonishing volume as timely and revolutionary as it is sumptuous and exuberant.

An authoritative and comprehensive account of the assessment and conservative management of temporomandibular disorders. Recent emphasis has been on 'evidence-based practice' at the expense of the clinical reality which should also take account of clinician expertise and patient preference. A sound research base is not always available. This text addresses the clinical reality of having to make decisions using other sources of knowledge in the absence of a comprehensive scientific rationale. It advocates clinical and evidence-informed practice - an approach which acknowledges the value of clinician experience and expertise as well as research findings. Compiled and edited by two highly regarded and experienced practitioners, researchers and authors who have already published many books and journal articles in the field. With contributions from a mix of 28 internationally-based clinicians and clinician-researchers allowing the text to highlight both current best evidence and clinicians' expertise and experience. Contributors include talented young clinicians as well as established experts in orthopaedic physiotherapy and world-level expert researchers.

A wide variety of primary and secondary phytochemicals are present in medicinal plants, some of which are active phytomedicines and some of which are pharmaceutical excipients.

Become Your Own Doctor - Lost Secrets of Humoral Healthcare Revealed (Paperback): Paul Lloyd Become Your Own Doctor - Lost Secrets of Humoral Healthcare Revealed (Paperback)
Paul Lloyd
R310 Discovery Miles 3 100 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

An informative book on diet, nutrition, and how to make simple medicines the humoral way. Prior to the adoption of chemicals and minerals to cure illnesses 'introduced' to the body, medical experts understood that controlling humoral balance is central to healthfulness. Curing problems that originate 'within' the body, and preventing them from occurring in the first place, these learned people knew, are two sides of the same coin. Thus, good health is maintained by eating the right foods at the right time, and improved by taking individually-tailored simple but effective humoral medicines. Become Your Own Doctor does four things: It describes the nature of humorism, the humoral body and medicine - discussing why for centuries it was so important in maintaining good health and preventing illnesses; it explains how to easily recognise bodily imbalances in order to make informed choices about lifestyle, dietary regimes and medicines; it discusses the humoral characteristics and medical attributes of a wide range of commonly available foods; and it explains how to simply make a range of medicines that can be used both to protect the household from contracting illnesses and to help cure existing ones.

This book traces the genesis, principles and practice of homeopathy, and discusses the reasons for its enduring popularity. Two hundred years ago, medicine had little to offer except blood letting and the administration of violent purgatives - practices which shortened the course of illness by hastening the death of the patient. Largely in reaction to what he correctly saw as the brutality and ineffectiveness of the medicine of his day, the eighteenth century German physician Samuel Hahnemann developed a system of therapeutics that he termed homeopathy. Ironically, while modern medicine has changed beyond recognition, homeopathy, with its roots in alchemy and metaphysics, continues to be practiced precisely as it was in Hahnemann's day. Readers of this book will enjoy the story of homeopathy and its almost magical attraction, whilst learning much from the authors' rational and scientific discussion of the biological, chemical and psychological questions that this treatment raises.
