As Dr. Neal Barnard says in the Foreword: "This book is the perfect place to dive in. In Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness, David Kater takes readers on a step-by-step journey toward good health.
There is a food revolution underway, fueled by a growing awareness about how our food choices impact our health, the environment, and animal welfare. People are questioning the efficacy of their traditional diets and looking to a whole food, plant-based diet as a better solution. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness examines every aspect of that solution. As Dr. Neal Barnard says in the Foreword: "This book is the perfect place to dive in. In Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness, David Kater takes readers on a step-by-step journey toward good health. As an educator and communicator who has taken this same journey himself, David will expertly guide you through the process, offering practical advice and words of encouragement along the way." This book is the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to eat more plant-based, whether you are just getting started or well along the path. It is packed with nutrition and health information, backed by solid and well-documented research (170 references). If you are just investigating the possibilities of eating more plant-based, this book will take you step-by-step through the transition, starting with the basics of navigating the grocery store, restocking your pantry and fridge, and preparing simple meals. You'll get answers to questions like: How do I get enough protein? What do I eat each day? How do I deal with cravings or awkward social situations? If you are already eating a vegan diet, this book will help you transition to a more whole food diet and show you how to sustain your new eating style as it develops. The book encourages you to identify your food comfort zone, and continuously expand that comfort zone to include more and more whole foods as your tastes evolve. There is a chapter devoted entirely to recipe-free cooking, which not only teaches you about flavor matching and flavor balancing, it facilitates the process of bringing more whole foods into your diet. There are over 160 mouth-watering recipes, many contributed by certified Food for Life instructor Tracy Childs. The dishes range from appetizers to dairy alternatives to main dishes to adaptable food templates. The book includes a comprehensive collection of online resources to support you at every stage of the journey - apps, blogs, books, documentaries, recipe sites, social media, and more. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness will guide you through your own personal journey to higher health consciousness. It is everything you need to know how to live plant-strong and thrive!

The proposed book is follows in the same steps as the first book in the series, The Handbook of Market Research for Life Sciences. While the first book focused on the techniques and methodologies to collect the market data you need to evaluate your market as well as presentation models for your data, the second volume will focus more on the commercialization elements of marketing. As such, this book will be covering a wide range of topics directly tied to marketing management such as marketing and commercialization strategies, consumers’ behaviors, marketing metrics, pricing techniques and strategies as well as marketing communications (public relations, advertising, and more). The objective of this book is to focus exclusively on the marketing aspects for life sciences, providing entrepreneurs with a toolkit of tools they can use throughout the marketing process, from market planning to commercialization. The overall objective is for them to gain an understanding on the marketing function, ask the right question, and be able to tackle simple to complex topics.

The realities surrounding the psychological experience of disability, plus the intervention techniques used to resolve some of the problems, have changed dramatically since the publication of the first edition of this classic text. This revised edition describes changes that have come out of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as technological advances, new legislation, and evolving health care systems. It addresses the growing interest in racial and ethnic diversity, and includes an exploration of spirituality and disability, as well as a look at new partnerships, such as within the community, that have developed.

We seek to throw down the gauntlet with this handbook, challenging the he gemony of the "behavioral medicine" approach to the psychological study and treatment of the physically ill. This volume is not another in that growing surfeit oftexts that pledge allegiance to the doctrinaire purity of behavioristic thinking, or conceptualize their subject in accord with the sterility of medical models. Diseases are not our focus, nor is the narrow band of behavioral assessment and therapy methodologies. Rather, we have sought to redefine this amorphous, yet burgeoning field so as to place it squarely within the province of a broadly-based psychology-specifically, the emerging, substantive discipline of health psy chology and the well-established professionalism and diverse technologies of clinical psychology. The handbook's title-Clinical Health Psychology-reflects this reorientation explicitly, and Chapter 1 addresses its themes and provides its justifications more fully. In the process of developing a relevant and comprehensive health assess ment tool, the editors were struck by the failure of clinical psychologists to avail themselves of the rich vein of materials that comprise the psychosocial world of the physically ill. Perhaps more dismaying was the observation that this field was being mined-less than optimally-by physicians and nonclinical psychologists.

I am able to relax more and don't get as uptight or angry as I used to. I have always been a person who had my "Buttons pushed" fairly easily and now I understand how to identify my Buttons, address them in a calm and loving way and most importantly, get rid of them.

I highly recommend this book, it is a must for any person who is interested in improving his or her quality of life and getting rid of those buttons! Jodie Wilkerson from Greenville, NC Get Ready to Unbutton and Be Free! Button Therapy, a 'MUST HAVE' for any mental health professional and/or the lay person.

The Handbook of Religion and Health has become the seminal research text on religion, spirituality, and health, outlining a rational argument for the connection between religion and health. The Second Edition completely revises and updates the first edition. Its authors are physicians: a psychiatrist and geriatrician, a primary care physician, and a professor of nursing and specialist in mental health nursing. The Second Edition surveys the historical connections between religion and health and grapples with the distinction between the terms ''religion'' and ''spirituality'' in research and clinical practice. It reviews research on religion and mental health, as well as extensive research literature on the mind-body relationship, and develops a model to explain how religious involvement may impact physical health through the mind-body mechanisms. It also explores the direct relationships between religion and physical health, covering such topics as immune and endocrine function, heart disease, hypertension and stroke, neurological disorders, cancer, and infectious diseases; and examines the consequences of illness including chronic pain, disability, and quality of life. Finally, the Handbook reviews research methods and addresses applications to clinical practice. Theological perspectives are interwoven throughout the chapters. The Handbook is the most insightful and authoritative resource available to anyone who wants to understand the relationship between religion and health.

What effect does religion have on physical and mental health? In answering this question, this book reviews and discusses research on the relationship between religion and a variety of mental and physical health outcomes, including depression and anxiety; heart disease, stroke, and cancer; and health related behaviors such as smoking and substance abuse. The authors examine the positive and negative effects of religion on health throughout the life span, from childhood to old age. Based on their findings, they build theoretical models illustrating the behavioral, psychological, social, and physiological pathways through which religion may influence health. The authors also review research on the impact of religious affiliation, belief, and practice on the use of health services and compliance with medical treatment. In conclusion, they discuss the clinical relevance of their findings and make recommendations for future research priorities. Offering the first comprehensive examination of its topic, this volume is an indispensable resource for research scientists, health professionals, public policy makers, and anyone interested in the relationship between religion and health.

The fascinating history of Spiritualism is coaxed into the material realm as the object of this perceptive and sweeping overview by that legendary author of the occult and supernatural, Raymond Buckland. Containing more than 500 entries and 100 illustrations, The Spirit Book is the comprehensive encyclopedia to Spiritualism and its related subjects. Plus it provides full biographies of every prominent person connected to the field. Drawing on decades of research, writing, and transcendence, Buckland describes sundry methods of channeling, events associated with Spiritualism, including séances and exorcism, organizations focused on clairvoyance, and a colorful host of mortals—famous and infamous—who delved into Spiritualism. Nostradamus, Helena Blavatsky, and Edgar Cayce receive their due, as well as Joan of Arc, William Blake, Susan B. Anthony, Winston Churchill, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mahatma Gandhi, Harry Houdini, and Mae West (look up and see her sometime). It explores Qabbalah, Sibyls, Fairies, Poltergeists; phenomena such as intuition and karma; objects useful in the attempt to cross the divide, including tarot cards, flower reading, and runes; and related practices such as Shamanism, transfiguration, meditation, and mesmerism.

Hair is a major component of the body's tissue system that contributes to the individual's make up and confers a large degree of personal identity. Apart from its visible façade, hair also has a functional role. It has an unique structure and complex molecular development. The very nature of hair makes it a suitable marker for the prognosis of disease. Hair can also be used to screen for toxins and changes in the diet. However, there are currently no suitable publications available that describe hair in a rational scientific context. This handbook provides an academic approach to hair in health and disease. Divided into five sections the Handbook of Hair in Health and Disease provides an insight into hair growth and loss, molecular and cellular biology of hair, dietary toxicity and pathological history, diseases and treatments of hair, as well as shampoos and conditioners. Unique features of each chapter in this volume include relevant and useful 'Key facts' which highlight interesting or important findings of the specific subjects and 'Summary points' that will give a clear overview of the subjects treated in each chapter. The Handbook of Hair in Health and Disease will be essential to a variety of users, such as trichologists, doctors and nurses and all those interested or working within the area of hair health. This includes nutritionists and dieticians, scientific beauticians, health workers and practitioners, college and university lecturers and undergraduate and graduate students.

Studies have clearly shown that optimal diet and nutrition can prevent skin disease. Moreover, novel nutritional components have been used experimentally to treat skin conditions. However, the clinical application of these nutrients awaits confirmation. It is thus up to health care professionals to present new knowledge in order to provide advice or treatments for skin problems. This handbook provides, in a single volume, comprehensive coverage of the relation between skin and diet and nutrition in its broadest sense. The Handbook of diet, nutrition and the skin consists of sections on general aspects of skin, nutrition and diet, micronutrients, nutraceuticals, cancer and specific skin conditions. Unique features of each chapter in this volume include relevant and useful 'key facts' which highlight interesting or important findings of the specific subjects and 'summary points' that are designed to abstract each chapter in take home messages. This handbook will be of interest to a wide range of readers, such as dermatologists, doctors, nurses and those interested in, or working within the area of skin health. This will of course also include nutritionists and dieticians, dermatologists, cosmetic scientists, health workers and practitioners, college and university lecturers and undergraduate and graduate students.
