Our story involves autism and the devastation that it’s diagnoses brings with it. I don’t think we can ever be prepared to hear a doctor tell us that our precious child has something wrong, but when we are told that the medical community does not know what causes the disease and there is absolutely no cure, we find ourselves left with nothing to hold onto. I have never, in my entire life, felt so hopeless and helpless. What were we going to do? How would we overcome this life sentence that our precious little boy had been given? How would we cope with all that lay ahead? Thus began an amazing journey, and through the love of my son and my precious little grandson, I began a faith walk with God that would take me down paths that I never could have imagined. Even today, no one is more surprised that I could overcome so much, so easily and with the joy and peace that fills my life. God has brought me and my family this far, but I believe our story has not ended, it has only just begun.

What is healing? What really determines it? How can we make it happen? It is increasingly clear that there is not just one single kind of medicine and that paths to healing flow through the integration of multiple pieces of knowledge and the combination of many perspectives. In light of the latest research into neurophysiology, psyche science and quantum physics, this book outlines the seven principles of the powerful interaction between psyche and body in healing processes, providing scientific answers to questions about the mechanisms which trigger it and identifying therapies that allow us to turn these internal switches on. This is demonstrated through reflections, examples, and real cases shared by the author, a psychiatrist and doctor who has completed several rigorous trainings but maintains an open mind and has been committed for more than 15 years to seek healing of serious illnesses in the psychosomatic unit by using therapeutic synergies that strengthen official care practices with innovative treatments, with her passionate work to painlessly repair suffering, with the patient, or rather the person, always and constantly at the centre.

Dysfunctional Families: How They Mismanage to Get That Way, and What We Can Do to Break the Cycle of Abuse

Today, in real families, only a very small portion of the population comes from nurturing and supportive homes; most individuals have been products of dysfunctional families instead. In A Time for Healing, author Dr. David E. Morgan provides a study of a dysfunctional family and presents principles necessary for sustaining a healthy family unit. Through the interplay of the fictional, four-generation Gardner family, A Time for Healing illustrates some events that can cause a family to be dysfunctional, reveals the carnage left from the pain, and discusses how to eradicate it. The Gardners' story shows how unhealthy family rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children and what a devastating effect this process has on families, relationships, organizational lives, and society. With ideas gleaned from more than forty years as an educator in the Chicago public schools, including both part-time and full time in higher education, Morgan shows how we can envision and create a better way forward and avoid the imperfections of family dysfunction in the future. A Time for Healing offers help for reclaiming the family by creating real, effective positive change. Cleaning up the family is about character, communication, forgiveness, healing, integrity, love, redemption, respect, understanding and the ownership of our acts.

In The Healing Mind, Dr. Paul Martin, a renowned professor behavioral biology, asserts that Wolfe's words are closer to the truth than we might imagine. Long the stuff of poetry and folklore, there is increasing scientific evidence that the brain and the immune system are inextricably linked. Dr. Martin illustrates with remarkable clarity that biological and psychological links that do indeed exist between mind and body--links that have in intricately constructed by evolution over the millennia, links that, when frayed or severed, are the root cause of more problems that you might imagine. Drawing together the latest biological and medical findings, The Healing Mind explains how we can at last reconcile many commonplace notions about "psychosomatic" illness and stress with a modern scientific understanding of how the mind and body affect each other. Martin makes impressive use of literary references to illustrate the degree to which we commonly (and accurately) observe the link between health and psyche. Here, presented in a fascinating and uniquely accessible manner, are the latest scientific solutions to some ancient puzzles concerning the relationship between brain, behavior, immunity, and disease.

Healing Grief

James Van Praagh's first two books, both New York Times bestsellers, have been a powerful healing force for millions of readers. Using his talents as a medium, Van Praagh has not only helped the bereaved reach their lost loved ones and find peace but he has also illuminated the mysteries of death, the afterlife, and rebirth. His new book, Healing Grief, will once again draw from his compelling and uplifting readings, but with a new and special purpose- to show what the spirit world can teach us about the grieving process itself. While grief is clearly a natural response to death, it should also properly accompany life's other difficult passages, including times of transition, the loss of a relationship, or even the loss of a pet. Healing Grief begins with chapters that each examine a specific kind of loss - death of a parent, a spouse, or a child, the end of a marriage, or the onset of a troubling life change, such as unemployment or grave illness - and considers the particular bereavement issues it may engender. The book also offers advice on explaining death to children, on distinguishing healthy from destructive grief, and on harnessing the powers of healing through special exercises, meditation and affirmations. Healing Grief should be, in Van Praagh's words, "a manual for grieving well," offering an inspiring new perspective on grief from a world-renowned medium who has become an expert at helping people cope with unresolvable sorrow.

View: 927

This book describes the psychospiritual facts of life about the pervasiveness of sexuality in all aspects of human life. It is not a "how to" manual so much as a description of the deep meaningfulness that can be found in the spirituality of sex. It is designed to enlighten us about ourselves, to give names to what we all feel all the time and do not know quite how to describe. It is about savoring the spiritual flavor of sexual play and sexual union. This is a book for everyone, from the inquiring adolescent to the mature adult looking for what is missing in sex and relationships. This is not a book mainly for Christians or Jews. It is about the generic human spirituality in every one of us, true believer and atheist alike. It is about being human more fully and with greater satisfaction.

Designated a Doody's Core Title! We live in a changed world, a world where the enemy is no longer in uniform on the other side of a trench. There is no longer an identified "war zone" and the "enemy" may be the innocent looking person standing next to us. Clear boundaries and an assumption of safety no longer exist. Learning new skills to address the injuries incurred by sudden trauma and unpredictable lives is essential. This book is written for those persons in the "helping professions." It is also written for those who have a sufficient understanding of psychology and a sufficient awareness of our current world, and want to gain some knowledge about being helpful. This book offers the educator and the practitioner training methods, exercises, and intervention techniques applicable to the gamut of experiences that we currently encounter. It also will introduce readers to newer concepts and their applications such as role play, spirituality, the role of animals in healing, and the concept of forgiveness. Throughout the book, whether it is in those who represent the highly resilient or those who continue to struggle, a strengths perspective is emphasized. Finally, this book describes the "Phoenix Phenomenon", a concept Wainrib developed during the course of her teaching and practice, which articulates and illustrates an inherent ability to use resilience in the process of converting pain into growth.

How to heal faster, better, and stronger during recovery from a serious illness or injury—a Harvard doctor's complete recovery plan When people are seriously ill or injured, they receive immediate and often life-sustaining treatment. Then at some point they are usually left to their own devices to "finish" healing. At the time that patients are discharged from treatment or their doctors tell them, "I don't have anything else I can offer you," they are often shifted into a zone where they are better than at their sickest point, but not as healthy as they once were. This zone, between illness and good health, is where rehabilitation specialists focus. Dr. Silver calls this area of medicine, where physiatrists work, The Healing Zone. This is the place where doctors are most concerned with physical and emotional healing after an injury or illness. Our bodies are amazing in their capacity to heal, however, people can be taught how to heal faster, better, and stronger, both physically and emotionally. You Can Heal Yourself offers the strategies needed to achieve optimal healing.
