Announcing the new Spanish-language translation of "What to Expect When You're Expecting: 4th Edition." This new edition offers a lively, informal, altogether user-friendly Spanish-language version.
This book, designed for professionals, introduces a psychobiological model for understanding the paths that lead people to illness and provides recommendations for alterations of maladaptive pathways so that health is regained. Research findings are incorporated to identify causal variables for illness that can be targets for change. Evidence based recommendations for healthy behaviors and therapies are described. Throughout the book, the authors emphasize recognition of turning points on the path to illness that, through informed decision making and implementation of behavioral change, can be re-directed to pathways to health. This book presents case material to illustrate the directions that lead people to illness or to health. The pathways metaphor provides an organizing force, both in addressing variables contributing to illness onset, and in identifying interventions to restore health. This approach will guide the clinician to understanding how people become ill and the types of interventions that are appropriate for stress related illnesses. The clinician will also become better informed about ways to help clients make better decisions, mobilize clients’ survival skills, and implement an interactive model of care. The book includes chapters on stress-related illnesses with high prevalence in today’s society. For each illness, the genetic-psychobiological etiology is explored with enough detail so that the clinician understands the best method of patient assessment and treatment. One of the strengths of the book is the step-wise system of interventions that are applied to the stress-related illnesses. Beginning with re-establishment of normal daily psychobiological rhythms and continuing to evidence based state of the art interventions, the professional is presented with detailed intervention plans. For example, the section on "Applications to common illnesses: metabolic disorders of behavior: diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia" considers the confluence of genetics, behavior, and maladaptive mind body interactions to produce the metabolic syndrome. Then the personal and professional assessments are described to establish the baseline for recommending treatment while fully engaging the patient. Finally, multilevel interventions are formulated for these disorders. The plan begins with clinician guided self care recommendations to re-establish the normal rhythm of appetite and satiety. The next level of interventions consists of skill building techniques, such as relaxation and imagery. Lastly, psychotherapy and advanced applied psychophysiological interventions are detailed. Case examples are used throughout to illustrate the pathways to illness, the turning points, and the pathways to health. From the patients’ viewpoints, the pathways metaphor is a motivator. The patient is guided to understand the paths that led to illness. Subsequently, the patient becomes empowered by the pathways framework to begin to make choices that lead to health.
Yoga for Fibromyalgia
Author: Shoosh Lettick Crotzer
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain in muscles, ligaments, and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points (places on the body where slight pressure causes pain). Although mainstream medicine has yet to devise a successful plan for treating fibromyalgia, yoga offers sensible strategies for managing—and sometimes overcoming—the pain. Written by a yoga teacher and suitable for both yoga novices and veterans, this book is grounded in simple movements, breathing techniques, and guided visualization and relaxation sessions. Readers learn to reduce stress and manage fibromyalgia through eight sequences: four for pain relief, one to diminish fatigue and improve sleep, and three for maintaining body awareness and general flexibility. The author's simple, supportive language and mixture of theory, practice, and the latest scientific data offer hope for one of today's most challenging health conditions.

The Chemotherapy Diet
Author: Mike Herbert ND, Joseph Dispenza
Publisher: Conari Press
According to the National Cancer Institute, an astounding 20%-40% of cancer patients die from causes related to malnutrition, not from the cancer itself, and 80% of cancer patients develop some form of clinical malnutrition. With The Chemotherapy Diet, Mike Herbert and Joseph Dispenza are here to help change these alarming statistics. Chemotherapy kills cancer cells (and other fast-growing and weak cells in the body, like hair). It doesn't make you healthy. The Chemotherapy Diet offers nutritional and other therapeutic advice to help your body stay (or get) healthy while it undergoes aggressive chemo treatments. Herbert and Dispenza concentrate on five primary areas: Focusing your mind on healingCleansing with therapeutic bathsEating the right foods to create a healing chemistry in your body (includes what to eat and what to avoid)Supplementing your diet correctly to support healing momentumExercising and resting to speed the healing process Even though it is important to acknowledge that every person and every cancer is different--women with cancer are different from men with cancer, children are different from adults, people with lung cancer are different from those with stomach cancer, and so on--we still share a common chemistry and that has been the guide for assembling a support plan in The Chemotherapy Diet that will benefit anyone wishing to remain healthy during and after chemotherapy.

Fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines and restless legs syndrome are disorders caused by an inability of the brain to properly regulate pain and sympathetic nervous activity, according to rheumatologist Dr. Clay McCord. Dr. McCord presents evidence that a chemical imbalance in the brain disrupts deep sleep. Therapy that restores this imbalance improves sleep and alleviates symptoms. Failure to recognize these associations has led to misdiagnosis, mistreatment, referrals to multiple specialists and money needlessly wasted. This book attempts to put an end to misunderstandings as they relate to fibromyalgia and dispels myths that the disease either doesn't exist or is all in the patient's mind. No longer should patients suffer unnecessarily or fall victim to charlatans offering nothing more than "junk science." After being frustrated for years watching others profit off discredited theories, Dr. McCord feels revealing the truth is the only way to combat the deception and bring relief to those who suffer. TH Dr. Clay McCord practices medicine in southern California. He graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and is certified in Rheumatology and Internal Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
