Complementary and alternative approaches to health and medicine have become increasingly widespread as the limits of conventional treatments become more apparent. Holistic Anatomy presents an authoritative study of anatomy, physiology, and pathology but expands the discussion by connecting the science of the body to a variety of alternative modalities to explore how human beings exist within—and interact with—their environment, and how they experience existence in emotional and spiritual terms. Basic scientific terminology and detailed descriptions are interwoven with informal, sometimes humorous observations, facts, and ideas about life. The mechanisms, structure, and functions of the body are explored, along with how they relate to spiritual and energetic paradigms, emotions, and ecological principles. The first half of the book covers basic anatomy and physiology, describing each major system of the body and how they interrelate. This part includes a thoughtful discussion of aging and the dying process. The second half focuses on models of health and disease, both traditional and holistic. Topics include western pathology, emotional health, five element medicine, and the spiritual cause for disease.

Finally, a food, fitness and lifestyle approach that makes sense for women from the dietry advisor to Sarah Wilson's 'I Quit Sugar' program! Find out why too much exercise, under-eating and low-carb diets do not work for women ... and what to do instead. For many years we have been led to believe that the best way to lose weight is just to 'eat less and exercise more'. However, for many women, this just does not work and, in fact, can actually restrict weight loss and facilitate weight gain. Worse than this is the damage it can do to women's hormonal health in the long term; creating thyroid issues, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, heart conditions and menstrual disruption. Not to mention that it can affect mood and be a precursor for depression! Registered dietician and trainer Kate Callaghan understands this all too well. For years she exercised for two hours a day and ate less than 1200 calories. She looked like a bundle of muscle with 13% body fat and a sixpack, but she lost her period, developed osteoporitic bones and discovered she was infertile. As a fitness professional, she was horrified by what she had done to herself. So she set about reconstructing her health, a process she explains in The Holistic Nutritionist for the benefit of other women. Kate writes: 'Are you a WO-MAN? Yes? Then you need this book! Holistic Nutrition is written for women like me who find themselves up the hormonal creek without a paddle after years of over-exercising and under-eating, and being an absolute stress-head. 'I wrote this book for the women who might have been following a Paleo-style diet, which is working great for Joe-next-door, but it seemed to make them fatter and more tired. I wrote it for the women who have been told that they will be unable to fall pregnant naturally, will need fertility treatment and have been offered no alternatives. I wrote it for the women who need to lose weight and are advised, 'Just eat less and exercise more', even though they have been doing that to no avail for the past umpteen years. I wrote it for the women who are sick and tired of being told that their hormones-gone-bad symptoms are 'just-a-fact-of-being-a-lady-and-acceptit- or-take-a-pill'. In a very down-to-earth and conversational manner, Kate completely dymystifies the science behind female hormones and how they are affected by diet, exercise and stress. She explains why low-carb diets do not help women achieve optimum health and can in fact cause serious health issues. Using her years of industry experience and training in dietetics, as well as the latest in scientific research, Kate outlines the ways in women can help nourish their bodies to not only look good, but feel confident and beautiful in their own skin. Kate covers vital points for women of all ages and lifestyles, from the athletes to the new mums, from the hard-charging cross-fitters to those just wanting to sleep better and have more energy.
