“An interactive and empowering book” to help African American men and women create a new vision of better health and navigate the health care system (BET.com). According to the federal Office of Minority Health, African Americans “are affected by serious diseases and health conditions at far greater rates than other Americans.” In fact, African Americans suffer an estimated 85,000 excess deaths every year from diseases we know how to prevent: heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes. In this important and accessible book, Dr. Michelle Gourdine provides African Americans with the knowledge and guidance they need to take charge of their wellbeing. Reclaiming Our Health begins with an overview of the primary health concerns facing African Americans and explains who is at greatest risk of illness. Expanding on her career and life experiences as an African American physician, Dr. Gourdine presents key insights into the ways African American culture shapes health choices—how beliefs, traditions, and values can influence eating choices, exercise habits, and even the decision to seek medical attention. She translates extensive research into practical information and presents readers with concrete steps for achieving a healthier lifestyle, as well as strategies for navigating the health-care system. This interactive guide with illustrations is a vital resource for every African American on how to live a healthier and more empowered life, and an indispensable handbook for health-care providers, policy makers, and others working to close the health gap among people of color. Says Gourdine, “I wrote this book to empower our community to solve our own health problems and save our own lives.”

For readers of On Trails: an incisive, utterly engaging exploration of walking: how it is fundamental to our being human, how we've designed it out of our lives, and how it is essential that we reembrace it "I'm going for a walk." How often has this phrase been uttered by someone with a heart full of anger or sorrow? Or as an invitation, a precursor to a declaration of love? Our species and its predecessors have been bipedal walkers for at least six million years; by now, we take this seemingly arbitrary motion for granted. Yet how many of us still really walk in our everyday lives? Driven by a combination of a car-centric culture and an insatiable thirst for productivity and efficiency, we're spending more time sedentary and alone than we ever have before. If bipedal walking is truly what makes our species human, as paleoanthropologists claim, what does it mean that we are designing walking right out of our lives? Antonia Malchik asks essential questions at the center of humanity's evolution and social structures: Who gets to walk, and where? How did we lose the right to walk, and what implications does that have for the strength of our communities, the future of democracy, and the pervasive loneliness of individual lives? The loss of walking as an individual and a community act has the potential to destroy our deepest spiritual connections, our democratic society, our neighborhoods, and our freedom. But we can change the course of our mobility. And we need to. Delving into a wealth of science, history, and anecdote -- from our deepest origins as hominins to our first steps as babies, to universal design and social infrastructure, A Walking Life shows exactly how walking is essential, and how deeply reliant our brains and bodies are on this simple pedestrian act -- and how we can reclaim it.

A “radical” approach to holistic healing that examines the root causes and cures for ailments such as Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and heart attacks • Offers cutting-edge detoxification and draining therapies to address the tremendous chemical onslaught of modern life • Explains the profound health problems caused by dental amalgams, vaccinations, antibiotics, cosmetics With the historic use of toxic mercury amalgam fillings, excessive courses of antibiotics, damaging childhood vaccines, and the many industrial pollutants and chemicals that have been spread into our air, water, and food over the past century, general holistic health guidelines are simply no longer adequate for most people. Only through radical measures--that is, getting to the true root or underlying cause of disease--can effective healing occur. In Radical Medicine, naturopathic physician Louisa Williams describes how to treat these and other modern-day “obstacles to cure,” in order to ensure against future degenerative disease and achieve the optimal health that is our birthright. Examining the many health problems triggered by dental amalgams and poor dentistry, Dr. Williams explains that our teeth are focal points for health issues that arise elsewhere in the body. She explores the impact of vaccinations, the excessive use of antibiotics, and the chemical-laden products used as health and beauty aids--which are linked to Alzheimer’s disease, heart attacks, and breast and other cancers--and provides information on cutting-edge detoxification treatments as well as drainage and nutritional therapies. A practical guide for practitioners and patients alike, Radical Medicine offers a wealth of holistic, natural therapies for overcoming what is poisoning us and our world so we can achieve optimal health and well-being.

The Mediterranean diet is the most universally accepted healthy eating regimen around. But what, exactly, is it? If you think it’s pasta with red sauce, Italian bread drizzled in olive oil, and plenty of fresh fruit and cheese, you’re wrong—dead wrong. The Mediterranean Zone is here to set you right. Barry Sears, Ph.D., revolutionized dieting with his 1995 bestseller The Zone. In the two decades since its publication, its principles of eating for optimal hormonal balance have become the standard by which diets are measured. Now, in The Mediterranean Zone, you’ll learn how our modern American diet changes the inflammatory response inside our bodies—and how that increased inflammation puts you at risk for Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer, and more. You’ll learn which Mediterranean diet foods help put out the fire, reducing your risk of disease while stripping away pounds, boosting your energy, and even lightening your mood! And you’ll learn how to turbocharge the Mediterranean diet to make it even more effective! Live your best life, in your best body, with The Mediterranean Zone. Praise for The Mediterranean Zone “I consider Dr. Barry Sears a mentor, innovator, and wise teacher. The Mediterranean Zone is a powerful new book that will help change your health quickly and permanently. It is not a fad, but a program that will get and keep you well for a very long time.”—Daniel G. Amen, M.D., founder, Amen Clinics, Inc., and bestselling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life “The Mediterranean Zone is very readable for the layman, but it also contains some significant new science, particularly in the appendix, for those who really want to learn about the biochemistry of omega-3 fatty acids, polyphenols, and epigenetics. Dr. Sears has clarified many aspects for me regarding the resolution of inflammation. His discussion of eicosanoids and gene transcription factors remains the best I have read. Finally, the dietary circle of anti-inflammatory nutrition is completed by his superb discussion of the value of polyphenols in any diet, and in particular an anti-inflammatory diet. I remain extremely admiring of his ability to take such complicated science and put it in an understandable and useful form.”—Joseph C.

From the author: If this information helps the professional caregiver, it will help the employee; if it helps the employee, it will help the company! A Pastoral Counselor's Model for Wellness in the Workplace: Psychergonomics takes the concept of ergonomics beyond physical and environmental concerns to include a holistic interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. This unique book examines how psychosocial factors like family, conflict, emotional stress, addiction, and financial pressures can impact an employee's health and well-being. It incorporates a new paradigm of health care into wellness in the corporate setting, adding a new dimension to human health and safety. A Pastoral Counselor's Model for Wellness in the Workplace explores the workplace reality that illness and injury are not just the result of simple linear causes. Companies have data to determine how much they spend on insurance and worker's compensation claims but no way to measure the effects absenteeism, productivity, quality of work, and employee morale have on operating expenses. Using a holistic model of understanding, employers may now consider that an injury may be the result of an employee's depression, an accident might be caused by substance abuse, and an illness could be brought on by being worried “sick.” A Pastoral Counselor's Model for Wellness in the Workplace examines how employees—and employers—can be affected by: money troubles marriage problems depression grief stress conflicts addictions alcoholism anger A Pastoral Counselor's Model for Wellness in the Workplace: Psychergonomics is an essential resource for all helping professions, particularly in the areas of mental health and addiction. The book is an invaluable tool for pastoral counselors, chaplains, human resources managers, employee assistance professionals, psychotherapists, health care professionals, and educators.

“Health care is not failing but succeeding, expensively, and we don't want to pay for it. So the administrations, public and private alike, intervene to cut costs, and herein lies the failure.” In this sure-to-be-controversial book, leading management thinker Henry Mintzberg turns his attention to reframing the management and organization of health care. The problem is not management per se but a form of remote-control management detached from the operations yet determined to control them. It reorganizes relentlessly, measures like mad, promotes a heroic form of leadership, favors competition where the need is for cooperation, and pretends that the calling of health care should be managed like a business. “Management in health care should be about dedicated and continuous care more than interventionist and episodic cures.” This professional form of organizing is the source of health care's great strength as well as its debilitating weakness. In its administration, as in its operations, it categorizes whatever it can to apply standardized practices whose results can be measured. When the categories fit, this works wonderfully well. The physician diagnoses appendicitis and operates; some administrator ticks the appropriate box and pays. But what happens when the fit fails—when patients fall outside the categories or across several categories or need to be treated as people beneath the categories or when the managers and professionals pass each other like ships in the night? To cope with all this, Mintzberg says that we need to reorganize our heads instead of our institutions. He discusses how we can think differently about systems and strategies, sectors and scale, measurement and management, leadership and organization, competition and collaboration. “Market control of health care is crass, state control is crude, professional control is closed. We need all three—in their place.” The overall message of Mintzberg's masterful analysis is that care, cure, control, and community have to work together, within health-care institutions and across them, to deliver quantity, quality, and equality simultaneously.

The process of therapy and treatment means stepping into an unfamiliar, new world with very different perspectives, processes and even its own language at ties. The goal of this extraordinary world is to repair, restructure, and build the internal structures to cope with losses, trauma, dysfunction, toxic stress, and addiction. The first of the Recovery Zone series focuses on the often painful and difficult internal tasks for that transition. This first book in the series by Patrick Carnes is already regarded as a classic and has been a durable best seller for the past decade. The second volume is now here, and Dr. Carnes helps with the issue of "now that I know all of this, what do I do?" How to translate the inner transformation into my everyday world? I have discovered the real "me" but what does that mean for me to integrate ideas and skills with my relationships, work, values, lifestyle -- and be happy? Much has been written about overcoming trauma, grief, dysfunctional relationships and the sinkholes of the various addictions. The sequel of Recovery Zone provides real answers about how to stay in the zone when traumatic events, toxic stress, and easy access to escape surrounds you. The goal must be an "Ultimate To Do List" so you do not miss out on the life you want and feel a genuine call to do. Core to this platform is a resilience built on ten master skills and thirty operational strategies that users describing as "defining" passage into a new life. The joke about life being what happens when you are on the way to do something else, has little reality at the end of this second volume. Dr. Carnes is widely known for his personal sharing, his warm and engaging stories, and his ability to weave complex science into something that everyone can use. These materials have evolved with the help of over two thousand therapists and the experiences of many thousands of patients. Another vintage of classic Carnes's writing.
