A heartfelt story of respect, heartbreak, and love…<br /><br />Saffi falls in love with and marries her mad scientist, never expecting to find the most profound friendship of her life with his mother, Gummy. She doesn’t particularly care for the woman, and the feeling seems to be mutual.<br /><br />Thrown together by circumstance, they forge a bond based on necessity, animosity, and begrudging respect. Neither knows it will last long after they no longer recognize each other. Memory loss changes more than the person who can’t remember. It changes those who can’t forget.<br /><br />Nobody Told Me is the story of a complicated and powerful relationship—the love between two women who love the same man and the struggle to hold on as dementia erases past, present, and future.

Our entire world, everything we see, is made of energy. The natural energetic fields of the earth and sun that we evolved in are required for good health, even our survival. Conversely, there are unnatural, or manmade energy fields from electric power and wireless technologies that we are now exposed to 24/7. What is the truth about these energy fields and their effect on our health, and on the health of our children? How have economics and politics played out in the arena of public health policy, affecting our right to a safe environment in our own homes? How have today’s exposure levels affected national and individual healthcare costs? Learn about manmade radiation’s effects on our sleep patterns, DNA, blood-brain barrier, sugar metabolism, immune system, stress levels, cell communications and the body’s ability to kill cancer cells. Learn about the relation to an increasing incidence of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, thyroid problems, and childhood developmental disorders such as autism, which in the 1970’s was 1 in 5,000 to today’s 1 in 50. The science even tells us why couples today are finding it difficult to conceive. <br />In 200 pages the author provides a comprehensive review of the issues, how we came to be overexposed, and the effects to our physical, mental and financial health. The 60-page supplement that follows provides cost effective solutions to help individuals reduce exposure, reverse accumulated damage and restore health while still availing themselves of the many benefits from technology. <br />

<p><strong>THIS VOLUME </strong>contains the principal elements preoccupying modern Psychiatry. The author introduces the reader into all mental illnesses, on the one hand through real examples deriving from his rich clinical experience and on the other explaining in simple terms the ‘fault’ that is the underlying cause. It is in essence an interesting investigation into the magical world of the human brain. Using easily comprehended language, the author provides convincing explanations for the diverse mental functions. The models he expounds on bring mental illness down to earth from the mists of Philosophy to the realities of Medicine. He compares schizophrenia to a minor short–circuit, and Anorexia Nervosa to the activation of a programme in reserve in the brain. He gives reasons for the necessity for sleep and dreams.</p><br /><br /><p>Other than a doctor, however, Pavlos Sakkas is a person intensively querying social behaviour. His many years of practice of psychiatry and his experience of human pain give him the potential to be of assistance to those who arrive at crucial crossroads in their life. His charitable attitude and the unconventional viewpoints he develops provide interesting answers to the greatest existentialist questioning of human beings. He speaks of his own questioning and recounts what he answers when his patients ask him about the meaning of life.</p><br /><br /><p>In this book the reader will be able to find useful directions to be guided in the great and thrilling journey of life: Guidelines for relations with parents, siblings, companions and one’s children.</p><br /><br /><p>The author has a way of transmitting such knowledge to his layman reader as would be envied by an experienced psychiatrist. But the book’s best achievement is to bring the reader into the head and the thoughts of a psychiatrist. His way also at the same time gives advice in the correct practice of clinical Psychiatry as well as of Medicine in general.</p><br /><br /><p>It is a book addressing every challenged and questioning person who cogitates a problem, including professionals of mental health, who will find in it new methods of approach along the hazardous paths of the human soul.</p>

An insightful book designed to promote active healthy aging, by Dr. Kevin T. Morgan, BVSc, PhD, DipACVP, ExFRCPath.<br /><br />It is based on a life-time study of veterinary medicine, optimal body-movement, endurance training, and experience with curing a range exercise-induced injuries.<br /><br />"It's not the fittest that survive, it's those most adaptable to change." Charles Darwin.<br /><br />Aging comes with major physical changes, to which you will need to adapt!<br /><br />Golden Years? They can be!<br /><br />In 2011, against medical advice, Dr. Morgan became the first person in the world to complete a full Ironman (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride, 26.2-mile marathon) with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) stent graft. He was proud to demonstrate to other older athletes that this is possible, with careful planning. He modified the way he moved to protect his AAA stent graft, and thus his life. These successful modifications, as described in the book, were based on an understanding of human anatomy, AAA stent design, and extensive training in optimal body movement, including Kung Fu, Yoga, Feldenkrais, Gyrokinesis, Continuum, Wing Chun, and Pilates.<br /><br />Aortic disease led to his leaving a successful research career, of 40 years to help others overcome the health challenges of aging. During the intervening years Dr. Morgan set up his company, Old Dogs in Training, LLC, with the goal of helping older people to raise their body-awareness. To bring their movement skills into the light of consciousness. This work has included books on living life well with an aortic disease, overcoming the heel pain of plantar fasciitis, and how to enjoy active healthy aging. Work which has enabled people with aortic disease and plantar fasciitis to return to their favorite sports. In fact, to get their lives back on track.<br /><br />This book presents Dr. Morgan's Observe, Question, Solve (OQS) Method. He explains the application of this approach to body movement with respect to our major life activities. Sitting, standing and walking/running. Stories from his life as a country vet in England, and as a research scientist, are employed as entertaining analogies to clarify the underlying philosophy of the OQS Method. You will be taken through six simple steps to overcome a life-time of unconscious but damaging habits. Including self-induced mis-alignments. For instance, he found that sitting the same way around for 50 years (right ankle on left knee) resulted in severe hip imbalance. This he fixed using OQS by sitting both ways, to improve his hip symmetry.<br /><br />The six steps will teach you:<br />-Step One: The importance of observing subtle movements that can have serious implications for your health.<br />-Step Two: To question the obvious and understand that the underlying cause of your problems may be remote from the site of perceived pain.<br />-Step Three: How to solve your issues like a detective, applying clearly explained body-awareness techniques. This will help you to avoid the cost expensive medical guidance, when appropriate.<br />-Step Four: How to sit more effectively, to correct self-induced misalignments. This can be used to treat certain painful conditions, such as plantar fasciitis aka acute morning heel pain, in the author's experience.<br />-Step Five: To use standing as your body movement laboratory. Never to waste the opportunity of waiting in line again. For instance, you can use a simple exercise to improve your sense of balance, while you wait.<br />-Step Six: How to walk/run injury free, using gravity and your spinal elasticity to move more effectively across the surface of this wonderful planet, as you tackle the fascinating challenges of aging.<br /><br />Changing The Way You Move includes suggested reading material, for optimal body movement and calming the mind. Enjoy your golden years, actively, by changing the way you move as you age.
How to Manage Nursing Care at Home

According to AARP (2015), 16.6%, one out of every six, of Americans provide unpaid care to an adult. In many cases, this care goes beyond custodial care and qualifies as skilled nursing care. Imagine this: someone you care deeply about is being released from the hospital, given the alternatives of home care, hospice care, or a nursing home. You have to decide, or help them decide, which alternative is best. If you decide on home care, you may need to manage it. This book will help you understand how to provide skilled nursing care at home and will aid in your decision-making on whether to undertake this. This book answers your primary questions: Why choose home care rather than care at a nursing facility? What will you need? Whom will you hire? When will they have to do what? Where in your home will they do it? How will you manage the care? The authors make it easier for those who step forward to provide care in their home for a family member or friend, although not being trained medical professionals themselves. You can manage something without being an expert, but it does require a working knowledge of the major concepts and the implementation of some variety of systematization. Whether you are managing the care at home or just monitoring care being given at home by an agency, this book should be of assistance to you in understanding what is needed and what is being done. The co-authors have been involved for over a decade in supplying and managing skilled nursing care at home for an immune-compromised quadriplegic patient who is on a ventilator and is fed and medicated through a gastric tube. The round-the-clock care mimics that which she received in the critical care unit of her regional hospital. How to Manage Nursing Care at Home tells its readers what to expect and gives them the necessary information and structure, in terms of needed forms, “charts,” to understand and oversee the nursing care given by RNs and LPNs. As one expert notes: “…authors Douglas Winslow Cooper and Diane R. Beggin address one of the most complex global issues faced in the 21st century: caring for someone you love, one who is also diagnosed with a severe medical condition, doing this safely, and in the home…. a valuable guide that will ease your worry as you begin your journey as one of the millions of untrained family caregivers who want to safely provide complex medical care services so that your loved one can remain home.” (Eboni I. Green, PhD, RN, Co-Founder of Caregiver Support Services)

Women are diagnosed with 80% of the over 145 identified autoimmune diseases (that number is still growing). Over 90% of the population has a form of autoimmune disease and inflammation. Several autoimmune diseases, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, myasthenia gravis, and multiple sclerosis, afflict women anywhere from two to 10 times more often than they do men. <br />Getting to the root cause to reverse autoimmunity is possible. There are 3 root causes that functional medicine doctors spend most of their time talking about. There is one more piece to the autoimmune puzzle that affects women more than it does men. Dr. Keesha Ewers calls this the “missing piece” of the complex autoimmune puzzle. <br />Dr. Keesha is one of the 50 million Americans who received an autoimmune diagnosis. In Solving the Autoimmune Puzzle, she teaches the same Freedom Framework she used to reverse not only her own autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis), but also the autoimmunity in thousands of others. <br /><br />
