Book Description :

See What Osteopathy Can Do For Your Child's Health—And Their Future! The perfect primer for parents looking for holistic, non-pharmaceutical, and nonsurgical alternatives, Osteopathy for Children ensures that parents fully understand and appreciate their options in finding the perfect program of care for their children. Osteopathy is a form of drug-free, non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopaths work to reduce and remove the unseen forces of injury, balancing tissue to effect instantaneous changes in body tensions. Traditional osteopathic physicians recognize that injuries suffered in early childhood often don’t present their full effects until much later, often leading to pain, fatigue, and a host of other medical complications. In fact, the final mature adult skeletal structure of an individual is strongly affected by the influence of injury and trauma in early life. Many of the persistent health problems that people face in their adult lives can be traced back to these long-forgotten traumas, particularly as conventional medicine continues to focus only on immediate, visible symptoms when diagnosing illness. With results approaching the miraculous, in terms of their immediacy and their efficacy, Osteopathy for Children brings an understanding of this holistic treatment style to the world, combining a pure understanding of osteopathy with years of expert experience in pediatrics. Through Osteopathy for Children, you will: • Explore the safe, world-recognized medical approach of osteopathy and make educated decisions for your child’s care • Find answers not provided anywhere else—including how and why old traumatic injuries influence our bodies for years to come • Learn from specific case studies of common problems, including before and after treatment photos • Understand how to detect physical clues in your child, identifying possible sources of trauma • Learn when, how, where and why to seek osteopathic care

Book Description :

This book is intended to be an inspiration for therapists to recognize, classify and successfully treat the phenomenon of Shock. A comprehensible language also offers the layman a unique opportunity to better understand Shock from a unique perspective. "Shock is the effect of an event beyond the breaking point of individual stress resilience, whether psychological, emotional or mechanical. This Shock-effect manifests itself as Shock Energy, which is a form of fixed energy manifested in the fluidity of the tissue." Shock energy has specific properties such as a braking, even a blocking, effect on vitality, potential for change and liveliness itself. Shock is crystallized Shock energy, frozen in space-time, mostly carrier of tissue memories of the experienced event. This leads to time-resistant and often therapy-resistant phenomena in the affected body. Shock energy is a manifestation on the fluid level, and must therefore also be addressed on this level - every manual therapist should learn to use this 'language'. This is not magic, just another language to build a dialogue with the biography of the affected person at the tissue level. In this book, the subject of Shock is dissected from Edward Muntinga DO's very personal 'experience-based' perspective. What is Shock? How do you recognize Shock? How do you treat Shock? What are the qualities and chronicities of tissue memories carried by Shock energy? A substantial part of the book is a kind of 'Shock library' in which the reader can draw on the author's wealth of experience.

Book Description :

Epilepsy is a difficult illness to control; up to 35% of patients do not respond fully to traditional medical treatments. For this reason, many sufferers choose to rely on or incorporate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their treatment regimens.

The book respects cultural differences that may incorporate alternative medicine into a medical management program, and encourages patients to safely continue receiving necessary medical treatments. Wherever possible, scientific evidence supports the choice of treatment modalities, as well as the effectiveness of a combined traditional and CAM approach. Readers will find incisive discussions in sections on: Learning to Reduce Seizures Asian, Herbal and Homeopathic Therapies Nutritional Therapies Alternative Medical Therapies Oxygen Therapies Manipulation and Osteopathic Therapies Music, Art, and Pet Therapies From stress and epilepsy, to acupuncture, massage, craniosacral therapies, homeopathy, ketogenic diets, aromatherapy, hypnosis, and more, the book is all-inclusive and enlightening. Additional commentary by the editors provides a critical vantage point from which to interpret the data and viewpoints of the contributors, all experts in the therapies presented. This balanced, scientific approach will appeal to even those most skeptical of alternative therapies, making the book essential for every professional who seeks to provide the broadest range of effective patient care.
