Body Reshaping through Muscle and Skin Meridian Therapy: An Introduction to 6 Body Types 1st Edition

51aa3dognpl-_sx340_bo1204203200_

Body Reshaping through Muscle and Skin Meridian Therapy: An Introduction to 6 Body Types shows you how your weight and body shape can be a direct result of ill health and explains the structures and functions involved. It explores much more than just what your scale and the fit of your clothes might tell you. It looks at skin, fat, muscles, diaphragm, historical illnesses or injuries, body posture, body clock or circadian rhythm, digestion, blood vessels, nutrition, sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, and enteric nervous system. By examining the above factors, you will learn how they contribute toward changes in body shape (notice no mention of dieting or exercise).

Muscle meridian therapy refers to the passive application of treatments to muscles not connected to any major organ. The techniques involved improve all the metabolic balances of the body (pressure, temperature, and balance) as well as your overall health. Therapies can benefit all people, including those with traumas such as digestive system disorders, autonomic nerve system disorders, medication complications, post-childbirth complications, major scarring, posture issues, and pain management.

The author provides the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) tools and techniques needed for practitioner-guided wellness or at-home wellness understanding and maintenance. The book offers a full guide to “body type” evaluation for muscle meridian therapy and presents a “passive” therapy method (like massage or acupuncture) to complement “active” therapies (like physical therapy and exercise). It covers concepts that are highly individualized yet very “whole body” for physical restoration and balance.

Contemporary Nutrition: A Functional Approach 2nd Edition

61qbxeg6r5l-_sx412_bo1204203200_

Contemporary Nutrition: A Functional Approach is an alternate version of Wardlaw-Smith’s Contemporary Nutrition, 8e. While Contemporary Nutrition: A Functional Approach shares the recognized strengths of the eighth edition, it offers a unique approach to the coverage of vitamins and minerals. It departs from a traditional presentation by instead organizing vitamins and minerals within the context of physiological functions and the health conditions they influence. The text will provide students who lack a strong science background the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical consumer-oriented knowledge. With their friendly writing style, the authors act as the student’s personal guide to dispelling common misconceptions and to gaining a solid foundation for making informed nutrition choices.

Eating Disorders: The Ultimate Teen Guide

0810887738

Recent studies indicate that 30 million people may suffer from a clinically diagnosable eating disorder at some point in their lives. Additional statistics suggest that half a million teens are experiencing disordered weight control behaviors at any time. The overwhelming majority of individuals who suffer from eating disorders are girls and young women between the ages of 12 and 25, but young males are not immune to the symptoms and suffer just as intensely . . . mostly in silence. Eating disorders affect not only those who battle them, but family members and friends who feel powerless to help.

In Eating Disorders: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Jessica R. Greene offers hope for individuals and their families who are experiencing these very real and devastating illnesses. In this comprehensive book, Greene examines the complex factors that contribute to pathological dieting and binging and purging behaviors in teenagers, as well as current thoughts on how to overcome them. The author reviews how types of eating disorders are classified per the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-5), points out the similarity to behavioral addictions, and showcases opinions from experts. In addition to depictions of our eating disordered legacy and discussions of brain science and body image, this book looks at:

  • Signs and Symptoms
  • Debunking the Myths
  • High Risk Groups
  • Data from around the World
  • Health Repercussions
  • Methods of Prevention
  • Intervention Strategies
  • Treatment Options
  • Recovery Challenges

Intended to both inform and engage, this book also includes sample ‘quizzes,’ questions for group discussion, plus lists of resources for teens and their parents. Filled with illustrative images and drawing on many real-life stories and quotes, Eating Disorders: The Ultimate Teen Guide will help young adults who are afflicted with all levels and combinations of disordered eating and exercise behaviors.
