Forest Bathing: The Rejuvenating Practice of Shinrin Yoku
Shinrin Yoku: taking in the forest atmosphere, the medicine of simply being in the forest, forest bathing. From the healing properties of phytoncides (self-protective compounds emitted by plants) to the ways we can benefit from what forest spaces can teach us, Forest Bathing: The Rejuvenating Practice of Shinrin Yoku discusses the history, science and philosophy behind this age-old therapeutic practice. Examples from the ancient Celts to Henry David Thoreau remind us of the ties between humankind and the natural world-ties that have become more and more elusive to Westerners. This book explains the traditional Japanese concepts that help readers understand and share in the benefits of the Japanese approach to forest bathing-a cornerstone of healing and health care in Japan. These concepts include: Yugen: Our living experience of the world around us that is so profound as to be beyond expression Komorebi: The interplay of leaves and sunlight Wabi sabi: Rejoicing in imperfection and impermanence The book goes on to offer guidelines for finding our replenishment in these peaceful, isolated spaces-from turning off the phone (or leaving it at home) to seeking the irregularities in nature, which in turn can make us less critical of ourselves. Finally, it offers tips not only on being fully present and mindful while you're in the forest, but also on how to take that mindfulness home with you-even if that home is the busiest and most crowded of cities.

Jin Shin Healing Touch: Quick Help for Common Ailments
A full-color, step-by-step guide to the simple two-point touch method of Jin Shin Jyutsu for quick relief from many common conditions and injuries * Details the 52 energy points of Jin Shin Jyutsu, called Safety Energy Locks (SELs), where energy is most likely to become blocked along the body's energy pathways and where it is also most easily released * Explains the sequence of points to hold and the appropriate finger mudras (positions) to address specific ailments, conditions, and injuries as well as stimulate the body's self-healing response and harmonize energy flow * Includes concise yet detailed instructions and clear illustrations of the energy points and sequences A gentle self-help method for harmonizing energy flow, strengthening the immune system, and stimulating the body's self-healing response, Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing art akin to an easier form of acupressure. The system centers on the 52 Safety Energy Locks (SELs) of the body's energy pathways, points where energy tends to become stuck easily and thus can also be released easily, usually by holding just two energy points simultaneously. In this full-color guide to Jin Shin Jyutsu, complete with detailed step-by-step illustrations, experienced practitioner Tina Stumpfig explains how to hold the SEL points in easy sequences to address specific ailments, conditions, and injuries. She also details a variety of finger mudras (finger holds) that can serve as shortcuts for bringing awareness to and alleviating a number of issues, such as anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, and back pains. The author describes the major overarching energy flows of the body and shows how, when a pathway becomes blocked, the energy ceases to flow freely and stagnates. Initially the channel is only blocked locally, though in the long run a blockage creates imbalance along the entire energy pathway and can thus affect the whole body. Using Jin Shin Jyutsu to work with the SELs allows you to quickly and easily release these energetic blockages, both acute or chronic. The polarity of the energy flow in our hands--energy flowing out on the right, flowing in on the left--functions like a starter cable that reestablishes broken energy links. At the same time, conscious breathing allows us to deepen our cosmic awareness and understanding of issues connected to the SELs on the inner level. Whether you are facing allergies, exhaustion, pain, or inflammation, the healing touch of Jin Shin Jyutsu offers a simple self-help tool that can quickly alleviate and soothe symptoms, kickstart the healing process, and improve overall health.

Hermetic Herbalism: The Art of Extracting Spagyric Essences
A never-before-translated occult classic that brings the science of herbal medicine back to its Hermetic roots * Includes a large collection of recipes for spagyric medicines and quintessences, with detailed step-by-step instructions, adapted from celebrated spagyrists such as Paracelsus, Pseudo-Lull, Philipp Ulstad, and Nicaise Le Fevre * Provides botanical and medicinal classifications of over 600 plant species along with their astral natures, elemental qualities, and planetary and zodiacal signatures * Explores advanced methods and techniques and shares the author's secret formula for a universal circulatum First published in French in 1911, this practical guide to the art of spagyrics begins by outlining the ancient yet often forgotten Hermetic foundations of herbalism. Author Jean Maveric provides botanical and medicinal classifications of over 600 plant species along with an in-depth study of their astral natures, elemental qualities, and planetary and zodiacal signatures as well as practical advice on the appropriate times to harvest plants and administer herbal remedies and quintessences. Reviewing the general principles and procedures of premodern chemistry, Maveric then explores the secret doctrines and operations of the spagyric art. He offers a large collection of recipes for spagyric herbal preparations adapted from celebrated spagyrists such as Paracelsus, Pseudo-Lull, Philipp Ulstad, Jan Baptist van Helmont, Oswald Croll, and Nicaise Le Fevre, providing detailed step-by-step instructions for a veritable pharmacopeia of spagyric extracts, tinctures, elixirs, liquors, oils, unguents, salts, aquae vitae, and quintessences. Maveric also shares his intricate theory of astral medicine and advocates a seasonal Hermetic diet designed to keep the humors of the body in equilibrium and prevent the onset of illness. In the final section of the book, Maveric focuses on the more advanced methods and techniques of Paracelsus, Helmont, and George Starkey, unraveling the mysteries of manufacturing alkalis, alkahests, and menstrua and divulging his own secret formula for a universal circulatum. Available now for the first time in English, this occult classic unveils the art of extracting spagyric essences to a modern audience while also bringing the science of herbal medicine back to its Hermetic roots.

Athlete's Gut: From Nerves Nature Breaks, Beat Stomach Distress and Stay at Your Best
The Athlete's Gut is an in-depth look at a system that plagues many athletes. This guide offers a much-needed resource for troubleshooting GI problems. The majority of endurance athletes suffer from some kind of gut problem during training and competition. Symptoms like nausea, cramping, bloating, side stitches, and the need to defecate can negatively impact an athlete's performance. Why are gut problems so common during exercise? And what can athletes do to prevent and manage gut symptoms that occur during training and competition? The Athlete's Gut makes sense of the complicated gastrointestinal tract and offers solutions to the tummy troubles that keep athletes from enjoying and excelling in their sport. Written by Patrick Wilson, professor of exercise science and registered dietitian, this gut guide for athletes combines the latest research on exercise and the gut with humorous descriptions and relatable stories. Athletes will better understand the inner workings of their own gut and will be equipped to make the needed changes to diet and exercise to perform-and feel-better.

Coping with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI): A Guide to Managing Memory Loss, Effective Brain Training and Reducing the Risk of Dementia
Adults are being increasingly diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and this book provides strategies for concerned individuals to help slow the onset of the condition. Around 50% of adults with MCI go on to develop dementia, but research shows that self-help through early intervention and preventative measures can hugely slow this down. The self-help measures in this book include memory aids, health and lifestyle changes, activities, therapies and technological aids. All of them are known to improve cognition and can be incorporated into daily life. Every measure is firmly based in current research, and this book is also applicable to those with early-stage dementia wishing to delay the onset of more severe cognitive impairment. Given the paramount importance of early intervention to prevent cognitive impairment worsening, this book is essential reading for any older individual wanting the best strategies to help with how to do this in practice.

Menopause: A Comic Treatment
Like so many other issues surrounding women's reproductive health, menopause has often been treated as a cultural taboo. On the rare occasions that menopausal and perimenopausal women are depicted in popular culture, they are stereotypically cast as the butt of demeaning jokes that encourage us to laugh at their deteriorating bodies and emotional volatility. The result is that women facing menopause often feel isolated and ashamed. In a spirit of community and support, this collection of comics presents a different view of menopause that enables those experiencing it to be seen and to feel empowered, their experiences validated and shared. Balancing levity with sincerity, these comics unapologetically depict menopause and all its attendant symptoms, from hot flashes and vaginal dryness to forgetfulness, social stigma, anxiety, and shame. Created from a variety of perspectives, they represent a range of life experiences, ages, gender identities, ethnicities, and health conditions. The common thread uniting these stories is the affirmation that, while we can and should laugh at ourselves, no one should be ashamed of menopause. The comics in this book encourage us to share our experiences and to support one another, and ourselves, through self-care and community. Featuring works by Joyce Farmer, Lynda Barry, Mimi Pond, Ellen Forney, and a host of other pioneering and up-and-coming comics artists, Menopause is a perfect foil to the simplistic, cheap-joke approach society at large has taken to this much-derided women's health issue. Readers will revel in the sly humor and universal truths found here.

Strong Like Her: A Celebration of Rule Breakers, History Makers, and Unstoppable Athletes
An adult version of the hugely successful book Strong is the New Pretty, this is an inspiring tribute to female athletes--those who have paved the way throughout history and those who continue to push the boundaries of what it means to be strong. From being kept out of the sporting world by most Ancient Greeks to being told by The New York Times that the 800-meter race was too great a call on feminine strength, women have long had to fight against the perception that to be strong is not feminine. Yet today, as women reclaim space in business and politics, we are also seeing an explosion in the number of women participating in strength sports like powerlifting, CrossFit, and even American Ninja Warrior. Those who got us here and defied convention to bring equality to the world of physical strength finally get their due in Strong Like Her--from the first female Olympian (who entered the chariot race through a loophole) to the Queen of Muscle Beach Pudgy Stockton, who dazzled crowds by holding her husband over her head. Accompanied by stunning celebrity photographs of some of today's most exciting athletes, Strong Like Her is a group biography and cultural history, paying tribute to women pioneers in athletics and celebrating the beauty of female strength and power.

Tiny You: A Western History of the Anti-Abortion Movement
Tiny You tells the story of one of the most successful political movements of the twentieth century: the grassroots campaign against legalized abortion. While Americans have rapidly changed their minds about sex education, pornography, arts funding, gay teachers, and ultimately gay marriage, opposition to legalized abortion has only grown. As other socially conservative movements have lost young activists, the pro-life movement has successfully recruited more young people to their cause. Jennifer L. Holland explores why abortion dominates conservative politics like no other cultural issue. Looking at anti-abortion movements in four western states since the 1960s-turning to the fetal pins passed around church services, the graphic images exchanged between friends, and the fetus dolls given to children in school-she argues that activists made fetal life feel personal to many Americans. Pro-life activists persuaded people to see themselves in the pins, images, and dolls they held in their hands and made the fight against abortion the primary bread-and-butter issue for social conservatives. Holland ultimately demonstrates that the success of the pro-life movement lies in the borrowed logic and emotional power of leftist activism.

Know Your Blood, Know Your Health: Prevent Disease and Enjoy Vibrant Health through Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
A guide to accurate, individualized blood test analysis for improving personal health and avoiding disease * Explains the differences between conventional lab reference ranges for blood tests and functional analysis and why the difference is important to your health * Reveals what healthy blood should look like and the critical markers that signal the very beginnings of a health problem, including thyroid dysfunction and inflammation * Provides recommendations for bringing blood markers back to an optimal healthy range through diet and supplementation Your blood holds the clues you need to maintain vibrant health. Yet a standard blood lab panel--the most widely used diagnostic tool in Western medicine--may not reveal subclinical imbalances or the earliest beginnings of disease. Your lab work results may come back normal, even though you have lingering symptoms of allergies, pain, headaches, fatigue, inflammation, depression, food cravings, PMS, or gas and bloating. This is because the reference ranges, to which you are being compared, are gathered from sources such as textbooks, averages based on outdated guess-work, or a small number of people who aren't even well. You could be a tenth of a point away from a disease pattern, but diagnostic protocol won't sound the alarm until you are lab high on a particular test. In Know Your Blood, Know Your Health, Kristin Grayce McGary explains the benefits of a Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis (FBCA), which looks at far more markers than standard blood tests and interprets your results against healthy ranges. Using real-life stories and examples, the author explains the basics of healthy blood and how a functional blood test provides a baseline for personal health and a powerful tool for disease prevention. You will learn what is meant by a standard Complete Blood Count (CBC), find clues to strengthen your immune system, and discover which markers indicate inflammation. McGary details what different reference ranges mean and highlights the importance of a full thyroid panel for women. She reveals how health issues such as insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and anemia have specific patterns in blood chemistry. She also provides recommendations for bringing markers back to an optimal healthy range through diet and supplementation and offers a road map to using your unique blood chemistry to design a customized healthcare plan to optimize your health.

The Sacred Herbs of Beltaine: Magical, Healing, and Edible Plants to Celebrate Spring
A practical guide to the celebration of Beltaine and the sacred herbs of spring * Explores the identification, harvest, and safe practical and ritual use of more than 90 plants and trees * Details rituals for honoring the traditional Gods and Goddesses of spring, such as the Goddess Chloris, the Goddess Flora, and the Daghda * Reveals which herbs to use for luck, magic, protection, purification, abundance, fertility, and love as well as the herbs of the Faeries and Elves and herbs for journeying to the Otherworld and for contacting the High Gods and Goddesses Marking the beginning of the Celtic year, the festival of Beltaine, May Day, is a celebration of the return of spring and the promise of summer, a time for love magic and spells for increasing the fertility of the land and the plants that grow upon it. Like Samhain in autumn, Beltaine is also a time when the veil between the physical and spiritual world is at its most transparent and the ancestors and denizens of the Otherworld easily interact with the world of humans. Presenting a practical guide to the celebration of Beltaine, Ellen Evert Hopman examines the plants, customs, foods, drinks, and rituals of May Day across many cultures. Discussing the gods and goddesses of spring, Hopman details the rituals for honoring them as well as traditional poems, prayers, incantations, folk rhymes, and sayings related to this time of year. She explores well dressing, the custom of honoring the source of sacred water by decorating a well. She also looks at Beltaine's association with Walpurgisnacht and Hexennacht, which fall the preceding evening. In the extensive section on the sacred plants of Beltaine, the author explores more than 90 herbs and trees, offering spells, rituals, and recipes alongside their medicinal healing uses. She reveals sacred woods suitable for the Beltaine fires and Beltaine flowers for rituals and spells. She explores herbs for luck, magic, purification, abundance, and love; herbs for protection, such as bindweed, elder, and St. John's wort; herbs of the Faeries and Elves, such as burdock and dandelion; and herbs for journeying to the Otherworld and contacting the high gods and goddesses. She also details the identification, harvest, and preparation of seasonal edible herbs, greens, mushrooms, and flowers. Woven throughout with mystical tales of folk, Faery, and sacred herbs, this guide offers each of us practical and magical ways to connect with Nature, the plant kingdom, and the Spirits that surround us in the season of spring.
