<b>“Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies<br /><br />A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this <b><b><b><i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b></b></b></b><br /> <br />Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In <i>The Body Keeps the Score</i>, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, <i>The Body Keeps the Score </i>exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

<b>The astonishing <i>New York Times</i> bestseller that chronicles how a brain scientist's own stroke led to enlightenment</b><br /><br /> On December 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven- year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. As she observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life-all within four hours-Taylor alternated between the euphoria of the intuitive and kinesthetic right brain, in which she felt a sense of complete well-being and peace, and the logical, sequential left brain, which recognized she was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was completely lost. It would take her eight years to fully recover.<br /><br /> For Taylor, her stroke was a blessing and a revelation. It taught her that by "stepping to the right" of our left brains, we can uncover feelings of well-being that are often sidelined by "brain chatter." Reaching wide audiences through her talk at the Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conference and her appearance on Oprah's online <i>Soul Series</i>, Taylor provides a valuable recovery guide for those touched by brain injury and an inspiring testimony that inner peace is accessible to anyone.

The thyroid is the new hot topic in health. Across age groups, from baby boomers and their parents to millennials and even children, more and more people &#8212;women especially &#8212;are hearing that their thyroids are to blame for their fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs, and more. Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.<br /><br />As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven&rsquo;t gone away &#8212;people aren&rsquo;t healing. Labeling someone with &ldquo;Hashimoto&rsquo;s,&rdquo; &ldquo;hypothyroidism,&rdquo; or the like doesn&rsquo;t explain the myriad health issues that person may experience. That&rsquo;s because there&rsquo;s a pivotal truth that goes by unnoticed: A thyroid problem is not the ultimate reason for a person&rsquo;s illness. A problematic thyroid is yet one more symptom of something much larger than this one small gland in the neck. It&rsquo;s something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that&rsquo;s responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.<br /><br />In <i>Medical Medium Thyroid Healing</i>, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what&rsquo;s going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality. It&rsquo;s an approach unlike any other, and as his millions of fans and followers will tell you, it&rsquo;s the approach that gets results.

Learn why boundaries are not bad, why humility is hard, how to milk your momentum, how passion powers progress, why persistence is a virtue and patience is not optional. Learn how to be your own cheerleader, know your own creative cycle, and say so long to the Sunday night blues.

Can’t get to bed at a reasonable hour? We all know we need more self-discipline, yet most of us are a bit foggy on what it actually is. Is it being on time to everything? Or early? Waking up at 5am? Doing everything everyone asks us to, on time, all the time? Or is it something more meaningful, more nourishing? This handbook will teach you how to take joy in cultivating self-discipline. Learn what it is, how to get it, why we need it, how to keep it, and why we want it. It also covers the major stumbling blocks in our way, both internally and externally. If you could use a boost of self-discipline along with a healthy dose of self-confidence, pick up this handbook today. You can’t afford not to.
