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.

Yet she has found that many women are “unconscious” of the intimate connections between these realms. Now Dr. Gaudet explains to women how to reconnect their bodies and their souls, in order to become “consciously female.” Using her experience in integrative medicine, which draws on the best of both alternative and conventional Western practices, she offers mind-body techniques that will give you a deeper understanding of the inner workings of your body, and access to your unique feminine wisdom. By helping you make the best possible choices to support your health and wellness, the process of becoming “consciously female” will enrich and empower your life, day to day, week to week, year to year.

BODY SPEAK! Listen to Your Body... It Knows What It's Talking About!Written by: Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Michele M. Rizzo.BODY SPEAK is the book I wish I had the day my husband Mike was diagnosed with a rare and deadly cancer of the bile ducts. The world we knew ended that day and a new world began. The world of discovering natural cancer healing cures through nutrition and new 'upgraded' lifestyle choices. Due to my husband's life-threatening illness, I launched into researching the root cause of today's growing epidemic of heart failure, chronic illness, obesity and cancer. My husband's journey from death's door to thriving health happened because he chose to follow a series of holistic, nutritional healing protocols - which are contained in this book. BODY SPEAK is a treasure-trove of knowledge that reveals why it is vital to listen to your body and respond to the 'help me' signals it is sending you. BODY SPEAK signals are symptoms of distress meant to get your attention and ignite you into taking the action necessary to fix underlying health issues. This book holds keys to help you not only listen to your body, but it teaches you how to respond in ways that will help you detox, lose weight, strengthen your immune system and recover your health.BODY SPEAK signals function like the dashboard of a car, when you do not pay attention to the 'change oil' or 'low fuel' lights, the car will stop running. In the same way, heartburn, indigestion, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, hemorrhoids, weight gain, skin rashes, frequent sinus and yeast infections, low energy and body pain are ALL BODY SPEAK signals that need your attention. If you fail to address BODY SPEAK symptoms early on, serious illness can develop, including cancer and premature death. BODY SPEAK is broken into Three Parts: WHAT, WHY & HOW:PART ONE - WHAT is Happening? 1-in-3 people can expect a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime if they do these three things:1) Eat the Standard American Diet (SAD).2) Never take the time to detox from heavy- metal environmental buildup.3) Take over-the-counter drugs and pharmaceuticals. In PART ONE I share my husband Mike's cancer diagnosis and what we chose to do about it in light of today's 21st Century Healthcare Cancer-Industry options. PART TWO - WHY? We explore the WHY behind the media blitz of confusion, misinformation and false advertising - all purposely designed to distort the truth about science, health and nutrition. Government subsidies fuel the fast-food industry. Food corporations are in the business of selling factory farmed animals, dairy, eggs, sugar, soda-pop and energy drinks. These companies pour millions of dollars into advertising in a constant effort to drive up market shares for corporate stock holders. Buyer beware. Don't get sucked in by lies and glitzy marketing campaigns. PART THREE - "HOW" to Detox & Heal the Body: Periodic detoxing is vital for over-all health, longevity and well-being. If one embarks too strenuously on detox, a 'healing crisis' can occur. There is no need for a healing crisis or undue stress on the body when detoxing gently by going on the 21-DAY ELIMINATION DETOX DIET (EDD) included in this book. As an Integrative Nutritional, Health Coach, I've designed THE 21-DAY EDD to be a gentle - and delicious - detox protocol that will help you locate food allergies and food sensitivities that may be causing you digestive distress. The EDD will naturally detox your body, release unwanted weight, decrease inflammation and bring balance and health to your body.BODY SPEAK INCLUDES: Over 75 delicious, nutritious and satisfying recipes. Everything from energy-packed breakfast smoothies, tasty, tangy fat-free salad dressings, roasted tomatillo & mango salsa, main meal salads, savory soups, luscious family pleasing entr�es, and RAW scrumptious desserts.

Learning to Breathe

A Mindfulness Curriculum for Adolescents to Cultivate Emotion Regulation, Attention, and Performance

Disruptive behavior in the classroom, poor academic performance, out-of-control emotions: if you work with adolescents, you are well-aware of the challenges this age group presents. What if there was a way to calm these students down and arm them with the mindfulness skills needed to really excel in school and life? Written by mindfulness expert and licensed clinical psychologist Patricia C. Broderick, Learning to Breatheis a secular program that tailors the teaching of mindfulness to the developmental needs of adolescents to help them understand their thoughts and feelings and manage distressing emotions. Students will be empowered by learning important mindfulness meditation skills that help them improve emotion regulation, reduce stress, improve overall performance, and, perhaps most importantly, develop their attention. The book also includes a website link with student handouts and homework assignments, making it an ideal classroom tool. The book integrates certain themes of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, into a program that is shorter, more accessible to students, and compatible with school curricula. Students will learn to pay attention in the moment, manage emotions as they are perceived, and gain greater control over their own feelings and actions. These mindfulness practices offer the opportunity to develop hardiness in the face of uncomfortable feelings that otherwise might provoke a response that could be harmful (e.g. acting out by taking drugs, displaying violent behavior or acting in by becoming more depressed). This easy-to-use manual is designed to be used by teachers, but can also be used by any mental health provider teaching adolescents emotion regulation, stress reduction and mindfulness skills. The author is a graduate of the MBSR advanced practicum at the Center for Mindfulness in Massachusetts, led by Jon Kabat-Zinn. She is also a clinical psychologist and a certified school psychologist and counselor for grades K-12. In the book, Broderick calls on her years of experience working with adolescents to outline the best strategies for dealing with disruption in the classroom and emotions that are out of hand. The book is structured around six themes built upon the acronym BREATHE, and each theme has a core message. The program allows for themes to be delivered in 6 longer or 18 shorter sessions, depending upon time and needs of students. The 6 core lessons are: Body, Reflection, Emotions, Attention, Tenderness, and Healthy Mind Habits. Learning to Breathe is the perfect tool for empowering students as they grapple with the psychological tasks of adolescence.
