Listen to Your Body shows how you can promote health and natural well-being by modifying everyday actions to improve the flow of qi (the universal principle of energy). Breathing, eating, drinking, resting, washing, and many other small but vital actions--if carried out in the right way--can result in profound changes in body function. To give readers an understanding of the body's own natural medicine, the authors provide a clear explanation of the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with reference to qi and its flow through the body's meridians, the balance of yin and yang, and the body's energy centers. Readers will learn how to tune in to the signals the body transmits to warn of impending health problems; numerous case histories illustrate how this highly developed information system of the body works. Later chapters address the art of relaxation, bringing together the TCM approach to health with recent scientific studies. Finally the authors describe in detail how to apply the natural medicine of the body to daily life. They discuss illness prevention and provide specific guidance for the management of a range of health disorders. Exercises and simple routines are given, together with the basis for their therapeutic effect.

People with normal eating patterns eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. But people struggling with binge eating relate very differently to this most basic need, often risking depression, gastrointestinal problems, and even death because of their problems with food. The Appetite Awareness Workbook offers an eight-week, cognitively based program to help you learn to pay attention to hunger cues, keep track of your feelings about food, and develop an eating schedule that discourages binge eating. In a series of easy exercises, the book guides you toward taking control of eating habits. First, gradual changes help you eat only when hungry or when a mealtime is scheduled. Then, awareness exercises help you stop eating when moderately full. Finally, by using cognitive techniques to control the tendency to eat for emotional reasons and journaling exercises to stay motivated and on track, you'll learn how to retrain yourself to maintain normal and healthy eating habits for life.

Listening to My Body is an engaging and interactive picture book that introduces children to the practice of paying attention to their bodies. Through a combination of story and simple experiential activities, it guides them through the process of noticing and naming their feelings and the physical sensations that accompany them, while helping them build on their capacity to engage mindfully, self-regulate, and develop a better sense of well-being. From "buzzing" and "tingly" to "wiggly" and "squirmy," Listening to My Body gives children a vocabulary to name their sensations and cultivates the message that whatever sensation or feeling they experience is okay. Putting these concepts into practice will help children get better at figuring out what they need to show care and kindness for themselves, especially when they experience difficult emotions. Listening to My Body is a wonderful resource for parents, counselors and teachers! "Great book for kiddos! Every parent should have this book for their child!" - Amazon review "I'm an adult and this book helped me! This is a great book to help kids listen to their bodies and learn how to discriminate between sensations and feelings. Highly recommended." - Amazon review "My four-year-old and me have been enjoying this book quite a bit. It is really helpful in having him learn about sensations and feelings!! I am a psychotherapist and I am really glad there are books like this out there!" -Amazon review "I work as a counselor in public schools and am a mom to a 4-year-old girl. I have read this book with children from 4-11 years old and every child has been engaged and interested in the story. The interventions throughout the book really get the kids involved in conversation about the concepts of feelings and sensations, both when they are calm and after getting a little dysregulated (from jumping, wiggling and rubbing hands together). A fantastic way to start conversations about these very important concepts!" - Amazon review

Has a chronic health issue taken over your life? More than half of us in the US are struggling with at least one. Amy Kurtz gets it. Starting in her mid-teens, she endured two perfect storms of illness that progressed into her twenties. It earned her the label “the sick chick”—and the shame, fear, isolation, and frustration that comes with it. She’s radically improved her health, and today she’s helping men and women of all ages live well regardless of their health situation. With honesty, humor, and empathy, Kicking Sick shows you how to jettison despair, tune in to your body and inner wisdom, take charge, and build an effective support circle of medical experts, friends, and family. Kicking Sick also brings you essential advice from Amy’s own A-team of experts—the ones crucial to her own turnaround: her personal physician Mark Hyman, gastroenterologist Gerard Mullin, endocrinologist Philip Felig, Crazy Sexy Cancer author Kris Carr, new thought leader Gabby Bernstein, and renowned yogi Elena Brower, plus many real life “glow warriors.”

"The Change Triangle" is a map. It's a guide to carry you from a place of disconnection back to your true self. It's a step-by-step process for feeling better. When you work the Change Triangle, you are using a tool that is at the center of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an emerging therapeutic method that teaches patients to identify the defenses and inhibitory emotions (shame, disgust, anxiety) that prevent them from being in touch with their core emotions (joy, anger, sadness, fear, and excitement) that lead us to an openhearted state of the authentic self: it's where we are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident, courageous, clear. In this book, Hendel tells stories of working the Change Triangle with patients and teaches us how to apply these principles to our daily lives"--

The more engaged we become with our own health and the more vigilant we are about identifying anything different or abnormal about our body state and function, the better off we will be. Doctors and naturopaths rely on both signs and symptoms to make a proper health diagnosis. So too can the average person learn to identify and interpret many of these. In Listen to Your Body Guide, Lisa Guy ND draws on her years of experience as a nutritionist to explore 301 of the most common signs and symptoms your body uses to tell you something is wrong; from cold sores and mouth ulcers to migraines and brittle nails.

A guided tour through the body’s innate healing powers Many of us have learned to ignore, deny, or even mistrust the wise messages our bodies give us. The result is that when trauma strikes, a time when we need every aspect of our beings to master the challenge, we may find ourselves disconnected from our greatest strengths. Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, who has spent thirty years studying the gifts of the body and teaching thousands how to reclaim them, began to recognize this strength, which she likens to a GPS, when she herself experienced a life-threatening trauma. Here she walks readers through different areas of the body, revealing the wisdom they hold and how to reconnect with that wisdom. As she shows in this warm, compassionate book, the body’s abilities are always available; we must simply reconnect with them.
