<div><p>Tired of the pace and noise of life near London and longing for a better place to raise their young children, Mary J. MacLeod and her husband encountered their dream while vacationing on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. Enthralled by its windswept beauty, they soon were the proud owners of a near-derelict croft house—a farmer’s stone cottage—on “a small acre” of land. Mary assumed duties as the island’s district nurse.<I> Call the Nurse</I> is her account of the enchanted years she and her family spent there, coming to know its folk as both patients and friends.</p><p> In anecdotes that are by turns funny, sad, moving, and tragic, she recalls them all, the crofters and their laird, the boatmen and tradesmen, young lovers and forbidding churchmen. Against the old-fashioned island culture and the grandeur of mountain and sea unfold indelible stories: a young woman carried through snow for airlift to the hospital; a rescue by boat; the marriage of a gentle giant and the island beauty; a ghostly encounter; the shocking discovery of a woman in chains; the flames of a heather fire at night; an unexploded bomb from World War II; and the joyful, tipsy celebration of a ceilidh. Gaelic fortitude meets a nurse’s compassion in these wonderful true stories from rural Scotland.</p></div>

<p><b>Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink’s landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice.</b><br /><br />In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos.<br /><i><br /></i>After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. <br /><br /><i>Five Days at Memorial</i>, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.<br /><br />In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, <i>Five Days at Memorial</i> radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis.<br /><br /><b>One of The <i>New York Times</i>' Best Ten Books of the Year</b></p>

<div><p> Psychiatry has made great advances in the past fifty years but needs a new direction. Today's emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recent advances in epigenetics and the molecular biology of the brain have provided a roadmap for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that do not produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served society well over the last fifty years, but the need for drug therapies will fade away as science advances.   </p><p><I>Nutrient Power</I> presents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders. This approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body's protection against environmental toxins. The author's database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease. This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments that have produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh's approach is more scientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at a true normalization of the brain.   </p><p>Depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widely differing brain chemistries and symptoms. <I>Nutrient Power</I> describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types. Other book highlights include the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia, a new way to look at autism, a promising new treatment for Alzheimer's, and recommendations for reducing crime and violence. </p></div>

One out of eight women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. One out of 3 women will experience some form of cancer in their life time.<br /><br />I was one of those statistics even though I was living a healthy lifestyle that consisted of organic foods, regular exercise, massage, Chiropractic care and colonics. How could somebody like me develop Breast Cancer?<br /><br />That very question led to thousands of hours of research, study, soul-searching and prayer. It all came together as The 7 Essentials – 7 basic steps that are necessary for preventing and healing cancer, or any dis-ease for that matter.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 1 – Why Do I Have Breast Cancer?</b><br /><br />Scientists have come to the conclusion that cancer is a preventable dis-ease that requires major lifestyle changes. Discover how to avoid the 7 Cancer Triggers that could possibly create cancer in your body.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 2 – Essential # 1 – Let Food Be Your Medicine</b><br /><br />Stop feeding the cancer by avoiding the foods that “feed” the cancer. Increasing your consumption of specific vegetables, oils and low glycemic fruits can reduce your Breast Cancer risk by 60-70%. Find out which foods lead to inflammation and dis-ease while others turn on protective, anti-cancer genes. <br /><br />Experiment with a sample 7 day anti-cancer meal plan.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 3 – Essential # 2 – Reduce Your Toxic Exposure</b><br /><br />Is it possible to escape the effects of the thousands of chemicals that you may be exposed to every day? There are clearly environmental links to Breast Cancer but there are specific steps that you can take to reduce your toxic exposure. Learn how to make conscious choices about the products you keep in your home, the cosmetics you apply and the internal toxins that are affecting your body.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 4 – Essential # 3 – Balance Your Energy</b><br /><br />Our body is 1 billionth physical matter and the rest is all energy. Our body runs on an energetic and electrical system that can be measured with instrumentation. There are specific healing arts and therapeutic tools that can help bring the body to balance, ultimately strengthening and boosting the Immune System. Proper hormone balance and revitalizing sleep can activate cancer-protective genes and boost the Immune System. <br /><br /><b>Chapter 5 – Essential # 4 – Heal Your Emotional Wounds</b><br /><br />In order to truly heal your body, you must heal your emotional wounds. Do you have the “Cancer Personality”? If so, your responses to stress and how you cope with it are often learned behaviors. You can change those learned behaviors and the bio-chemistry of your body with your attitude and your thought patterns. Strengthen your “happiness muscle” with 8 specific steps.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 6 – Essential # 5 – Embrace Biological Dentistry</b><br /><br />Metals in your teeth have the potential to increase estrogen signaling in the breast tissue. These metallo-estrogens have been found in Breast Cancer tissue biopsies. Toxicities from root canals have been associated with most cancers. Learn how to take steps to detox these poisonous materials that may be compromising your Immune System and Meridian System.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 7 – Essential # 6 – Repair Your Body with Therapeutic Plants</b><br /><br />The United States National Library of Medicine has a data base of hundreds of thousands of citations and abstracts of bio-medical literature and journals giving evidence of the benefits of Natural Medicine. There are specific plant compounds that have been shown to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Others boost the Immune System and support the body’s ability to heal. Enjoy foods that detoxify carcinogens, inhibit tumor growth and even reduce the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy.<br /><br /><b>Chapter 8 – Essential # 7 – Adopt Very Early Detection</b><br /><br />Would you be interested in technology and blood work that could potentially discover cancer on a small cellular level before it had a chance to develop into a large tumor? Mammography has not decreased Breast Cancer mortality rate.
