<p><strong>Can Medical Cannabis help you? Forty-four states and the District of Columbia have legalized some form of Medical Cannabis for treatment of serious conditions.</strong> Pain, cancer, sleep disturbance, mood disorders, epilepsy, osteoporosis, anxiety disorders, and many others are all conditions that may be helped by this treatment. Author Dr. Michael Moskowitz reviews the science of our own built in cannabinoid system, then launches into practical topics, including medical cannabis treatment, dispensary management, paraphernalia, embodiments, routes of administration, and DIY treatment. He covers the complexities of state laws, learning the phases of treatment, working with dispensaries, understanding the different embodiments and routes of administration, knowing how to avoid undesirable psychotropic effects, and combining this approach with both traditional and alternative medical care. The book details many ways of using this treatment without being cognitively altered. It is meticulously documented, and scientifically grounded to both help physicians with recommendations and treatment planning and in delivering highly relevant and useful treatment choices for patients. Whether you are a patient, practitioner, caregiver or lawmaker, <em>Medical Cannabis: A Guide for Patients, Practitioners, and Caregivers</em> separates myth from reality and proves itself invaluable to your own decision making about this therapeutic approach.</p>

<b>Equal parts true crime, twentieth-century history, and science thriller, <i>The Poisoner's Handbook</i> is "a vicious, page-turning story that reads more like Raymond Chandler than Madame Curie"</b> (<i>The New York Observer</i>)<br /><br /> A fascinating Jazz Age tale of chemistry and detection, poison and murder, <i>The Poisoner's Handbook</i> is a page-turning account of a forgotten era. In early twentieth-century New York, poisons offered an easy path to the perfect crime. Science had no place in the Tammany Hall-controlled coroner's office, and corruption ran rampant. However, with the appointment of chief medical examiner Charles Norris in 1918, the poison game changed forever. Together with toxicologist Alexander Gettler, the duo set the justice system on fire with their trailblazing scientific detective work, triumphing over seemingly unbeatable odds to become the pioneers of forensic chemistry and the gatekeepers of justice.<br /><br /><b><b>In 2014, PBS's AMERICAN EXPERIENCE released a film based on <i>The Poisoner's Handbook.</i></b></b>

<b>Now with bonus material, including a new foreword and afterword with updated research</b><br /><br />In this astonishing and startling book, award-winning science and history writer Robert Whitaker investigates a medical mystery: Why has the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States <i>tripled </i>over the past two decades? Every day, 1,100 adults and children are added to the government disability rolls because they have become newly disabled by mental illness, with this epidemic spreading most rapidly among our nation’s children. What is going on?<br /><i> </i><br /><i>Anatomy of an Epidemic </i>challenges readers to think through that question themselves. First, Whitaker investigates what is known today about the biological causes of mental disorders. Do psychiatric medications fix “chemical imbalances” in the brain, or do they, in fact, <i>create </i>them? Researchers spent decades studying that question, and by the late 1980s, they had their answer. Readers will be startled—and dismayed—to discover what was reported in the scientific journals.<br /> <br />Then comes the scientific query at the heart of this book: During the past fifty years, when investigators looked at how psychiatric drugs affected <i>long</i>-<i>term </i>outcomes, what did they find? Did they discover that the drugs help people stay well? Function better? Enjoy good physical health? Or did they find that these medications, for some paradoxical reason, <i>increase </i>the likelihood that people will become chronically ill, less able to function well, more prone to physical illness? <br /> <br />This is the first book to look at the merits of psychiatric medications through the prism of long-term results. Are long-term recovery rates higher for medicated or unmedicated schizophrenia patients? Does taking an antidepressant decrease or increase the risk that a depressed person will become disabled by the disorder? Do bipolar patients fare better today than they did forty years ago, or much worse? When the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) studied the long-term outcomes of children with ADHD, did they determine that stimulants provide any benefit? <br /> <br />By the end of this review of the outcomes literature, readers are certain to have a haunting question of their own: Why have the results from these long-term studies—all of which point to the same startling conclusion—been kept from the public? <br /> <br />In this compelling history, Whitaker also tells the personal stories of children and adults swept up in this epidemic. Finally, he reports on innovative programs of psychiatric care in Europe and the United States that are producing good long-term outcomes. Our nation has been hit by an epidemic of disabling mental illness, and yet, as <i>Anatomy of an Epidemic </i>reveals, the medical blueprints for curbing that epidemic have already been drawn up.

A complete guide (manual) to migraine prevention and treatment without taking any medicines. It is a self-help guide with full explanation about how to successfully abort and prevent all migraines. The book also provides a full explanation of the cause of migraines from a physiological, biological, and genetics perspective. This book is an extended edition of the "Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: How to Treat and Prevent Migraines without Medicines. An Insider's View" book published and now discontinued.<br /><br />The book is laid out in five parts:<br />Part I: migraineurs who read the 1st edition of the book comment and introduction<br />Part II: quick guide to get rid of an ongoing migraine<br />Part III: the heart of the book, describing the physiology and biology or migraines, who is susceptible to migraines and why. Also includes all prodrome types, all triggers, and detailed analysis on how triggers can be cancelled.<br />Part IV: a more complex explanation of migraine-cause specifically for doctors, scientists, and migraineurs more interested in the genetics and bio-physiology of migraines. It also contains a part titled “Drugs of Shame” describing the 30 most often prescribed medicines for migraine pain prevention, their side effects, and FDA warnings. <br />Part V: a huge citation list of over 800 citations of academic literature. Each academic article adds a little bit of information to complete the whole picture of migraines. <br /><br />In this book I pull together information from many fields of science and connect the dots to help the reader to conclude the same thing I did: migraine is preventable and completely treatable without the use of any medicines.

<p>From the first yoga instructor to bring cannabis-enhanced yoga classes to North America, a groundbreaking guide to finding balance in our lives using the ancient method of mixing cannabis with spiritual practice.</p><p>Yogis have been using cannabis to enhance spiritual practice for millennia. Today, there is a quiet but growing conversation within the Western yoga community about the potential role of cannabis for modern seekers pursuing a spiritual path. Now, certified yoga instructor Dee Dussault takes this ancient practice mainstream. <em>Ganja Yoga</em> isn’t just mixing cannabis and exercise; it is a ceremony that makes conscious relaxation an intentional ritual that can be enhanced with practice—a lifestyle to help you create a more harmonious and stress-free world. </p><p>For some contemporary yoga adherents, marijuana can deepen awareness, acceptance, connection, and relaxation during practice. As state laws loosen and the stigma surrounding marijuana dissipates, cannabis is increasingly seen as a legitimate supplement to increased health and wellbeing. <em>Ganja Yoga</em> explains how to set up a sacred space that allows you to use this relaxing substance with yoga for enlightenment (or at least some awesome stretching and meditation). </p><p>Dee walks you through the considerations and best practices for introducing cannabis into your yoga practice, or infusing yoga into your smoking routine. But it’s not about being stoned out of your head—as Dee says, it’s like adding spice to your food. In <em>Ganja Yoga</em>, she explains how to:</p><ul><li>Reap the benefits of profound relaxation</li><li>Assume an altered state in a safe, energizing way</li><li>Deepen the spiritual practice of yoga</li><li>Reconnect with the body using ancient techniques</li><li>Select the best setting, time, method of consumption, strains, poses, and breathing techniques to ensure an excellent experience</li></ul><p>Whether you want to practice in a class or in the privacy of your own home, <em>Ganja Yoga</em> is your key to reaching a new spiritual high.</p>
