Chi Walking (USED)

$7.99
More Info
From the authors of the bestselling ChiRunning comes a revolutionary program that blends the health benefits of walking with the core principles of T'ai Chi to deliver maximum physical, mental, and spiritual fitness.

The low-impact health benefits of walking have made it one of the most popular forms of daily exercise. Yet few people experience all the benefits that walking can offer.

In ChiWalking, Danny and Katherine Dreyer, well-known walking and running coaches, teach the walking technique they created that transforms walking from a mundane means of locomotion into an intensely rewarding practice that enhances mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Similar to Pilates, yoga, and T'ai Chi, ChiWalking emphasizes body alignment and mindfulness while strengthening the core muscles of the body.

The five mindful steps of the ChiWalking program will get anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, into great shape from head to toe, inside and out.

1. Get aligned. Develop great posture and better balance.

2. Engage your core. Make back and knee pain disappear.

3. Create balance. Walk faster, farther, and with less effort.

4. Make a choice. Choose from a menu of twelve great walks such as the Cardio Walk, the Energizing Walk, or the Walking Meditation, to keep your exercise program fresh.

5. Move forward. Make walking any distance a mindful, enjoyable experience, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned walker.

Classic Works in Medical Ethics (USED)

$7.99
More Info
After thirty years, Medical Ethics has matured to where a collection of core writings in the field is now possible. There is even a danger that some classic articles will cease to be known because they are no longer included in "issue of the moment" anthologies. This book offers classic, well-written articles that have stood the test of time and have something to teach. These are articles with good philosophical analysis dealing with important topics and making significant contributions to understanding of issues. There are no long, boring selections from government commissions or technical pieces from scientific journals. Many selections illustrate how and why philosophers contributed to the progress of medical ethics. The articles cluster around several broad philosophical questions: terminating the lives of dying patients; assisting human life to begin outside the womb; terminating the beginnings of human life; personhood and higher animals, fetuses, impaired newborns, comatose patients; individual rights against the greater social good; and allocating scarce medical resources.

    Coyote Healing (USED)

    $6.99
    More Info
    Distills the basic principles used by Native American healers to create miracles.

    - Explores the power of miracles in both traditional Native American healing and modern scientific medicine.

    - Cites numerous cases in which people whose conditions were deemed hopeless were miraculously healed.

    - Enables readers to start their own healing journey through the exploration of purpose, meaning, and acceptance.

    - By the author of Coyote Medicine.

    Native American healers expect miracles and prepare in all possible ways for them to occur. In modern medicine, miraculous recoveries are discarded from studies as anomalous cases that will taint the otherwise orderly results. Yet this small group of "miracle" patients has much to teach us about healing and survival.

    Coyote Healing distills the common elements in miracle cures to help people start their own healing journey. Looking at 100 cases of individuals who experienced miracle cures, Dr. Mehl-Madrona found the same preconditions that Native American healers know are necessary in order for miracles to occur. The author reveals what he learned from both his own practice and the interviews he conducted with survivors about the common features of their path back to wellness. Survivors found purpose and meaning in their life-threatening illness; peaceful acceptance was key to their healing. Coyote Healing also tells of another kind of miracle--finding faith, hope, and serenity even when a cure seems impossible.

  • Guidance for determining if a chakra is blocked

    In Doctor, What Should I Eat?, Isadore Rosenfeld, M.D., one of America's most trusted doctors, gives you specific food recommendations for the conditions in which the role of diet has been clearly and scientifically established. Dr. Rosenfeld discusses how each disorder develops, what you should or should not eat to help your recovery or prevent a recurrence, and which medications will work best with your food prescription. Working with an experienced registered dietitian, he offers dozens of menus and tables to help put his nutrition prescriptions into action. Dr. Rosenfeld dispels many myths and misconceptions about food and illness and helps readers learn how to spot nutritional quacks. He demystifies the complexities typical of much nutritional advice (who wants to plan dinner with a calculator?) and offers straightforward, easy-to-follow advice. He combines his review of thousands of scientific studies with decades of experience from his own clinical practice, giving readers a full spectrum of nutritional solutions, all of which have been vetted by experts in the field. Too many traditional doctors don't pay enough attention to the importance of your diet in treating illness; too many holistic practitioners decry the use of medications. Proper medical treatment should never be a matter of either/or; it should include both sound nutritional advice and recommendations for the most effective medications - the vital combination you'll find in Doctor, What Should I Eat?
