Book Description :

From a leading voice on recovering from toxic relationships, a deeply insightful guide to getting back to your "old self" again--in order to truly heal and move on. Jackson MacKenzie has helped millions of people in their struggle to understand the experience of toxic relationships. His first book, Psychopath Free, explained how to identify and survive the immediate situation. In this highly anticipated new book, he guides readers on what to do next--how to fully heal from abuse in order to find love and acceptance for the self and others. Through his close work with--and deep connection to--thousands of survivors of abusive relationships Jackson discovered that most survivors have symptoms of trauma long after the relationship is over. These range from feelings of numbness and emptiness to depression, perfectionism, substance abuse, and many more. But he’s also found that it is possible to work through these symptoms and find love on the other side, and this book shows how. Through a practice of mindfulness, introspection, and exercises using specific tools, readers learn to identify the protective self they've developed - and uncover the core self, so that they can finally move on to live a full and authentic life--to once again feel light, free, and whole, and ready to love again. This book addresses and provides crucial guidance on topics and conditions like: complex PTSD, Narcissistic abuse, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Codependency, Core wounding, toxic shame, Borderline Personality Disorder, and so many more. Whole Again offers hope and multiple strategies to anyone who has survived a toxic relationship, as well as anyone suffering the effects of a breakup involving lying, cheating and other forms of abuse--to release old wounds and safely let the love back inside where it belongs.

The second MYSTIC CITY novel . . . it's Romeo & Juliet in a dystopic Manhattan. A city in flames. A trust betrayed. A perfect love destroyed. Has Aria lost Hunter, her one true love? Ever since rebellion broke out in Mystic City, pitting the ruling elite against the magic-wielding mystics, Aria has barely seen her boyfriend. Not surprising, since Hunter is the leader of the mystic uprising, and he'll do whatever it takes to win freedom for his people—even if that means using Aria. But Aria is no one's pawn. She believes she can bring the two warring sides together, save the city, and win back the Hunter she fell in love with. Before she can play peacemaker, though, Aria will need to find the missing heart of a dead mystic. The heart gives untold powers to whoever possesses it, but finding it means seeking out a fierce enemy whose deepest desire is for Aria to be gone—forever. "Recommended for dystopian fans."--School Library Journal

Book Description :

This report considers the biological and behavioral mechanisms that may underlie the pathogenicity of tobacco smoke. Many Surgeon General's reports have considered research findings on mechanisms in assessing the biological plausibility of associations observed in epidemiologic studies. Mechanisms of disease are important because they may provide plausibility, which is one of the guideline criteria for assessing evidence on causation. This report specifically reviews the evidence on the potential mechanisms by which smoking causes diseases and considers whether a mechanism is likely to be operative in the production of human disease by tobacco smoke. This evidence is relevant to understanding how smoking causes disease, to identifying those who may be particularly susceptible, and to assessing the potential risks of tobacco products.

Book Description :

ATP plays a central role in the two leading causes of cardiac morbidity and mortality in the western world: ischemia and heart failure. We are in our infancy applying what is known about biology and chemistry of ATP toward developing effective therapies for these diseases. In this volume, the current understanding of the chemistry and biology of ATP specifically in the cardiomyocyte is presented. New insights into ATP have been gleaned using biophysical techniques allowing dynamic measurement of chemical events in the intact beating heart and using new animal models in which cardiac proteins are either over expressed, deleted or harbor specific mutations. This book provides a summary of the basic understanding and includes illustrations of why ATP and the Heart is important to both the clinician and scientist.

Book Description :

3. Chelation Therapy, how it works, where to seek help Chelation Therapy has been in medical use for decades to treat the patients intoxicated with heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic and many others. The procedure involves use of FDA approved chelating agents like ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA). Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is another chelating agent used for the treatment of lead poisoning in children. However chelation therapy has not been approved by FDA for anything other than removal of heavy metals. Nevertheless Alternative medicine practitioners frequently use chelation therapy for helping patients with Heart disease. Hardening of arteries reduces the flow of blood through them thus affecting the much needed nourishment and oxygen to different parts of body. However administration of EDTA intravenously has proven time and time again effective against reversing the hardening of arteries and improving the blood flow. The treatment is almost painless. You simply lie down or sit up hooked up to a I V drip , read your book, sip on water, or simply relax and watch TV. The process takes about an hour and a half per sitting, depending upon your dosage. I am told 3 grams is full dose (bag)and one can start with half of that(half bag). You are encouraged to take a drink of water frequently as you would make a trip or two to empty your bladder to flush out the toxins. The procedure is conducted and supervised under a qualified medical practitioner. Your doctor will normally order blood test for you before and after few treatments to check your kidney function. Also your doctor will decide the total number and the frequency of these treatments depending on your situation. So basically the chelating agent like EDTA binds with the deposits and heavy metals in your blood and thus slowly flushing them out in your urine. Hence the importance of drinking water. Introducing Integrative Medicine. According to ACAM integrative medicine combines conventional care with alternative medicine to improve patient care. Rather than practice one type of medicine, integrative physicians will often combine therapies and treatment approaches to ensure the best results for their patients. ACAM physicians do not shun western medicine, in fact they practice western care every day. These physicians are unique in that they incorporate appropriate and proven alternative treatment options. Introducing ACAM-American College For Advancement In Medicine. ACAM organization located in Irvine California, trains and certify all licensed healthcare providers, including M.D's, DO's, ND's, Phd's and DC's and many more in integrative medicine. Chelation Therapy is one example. They maintain a list of certified Chelation therapists around the world. Contact ACAM in USA at 1-800-532-3688. Monday-Friday 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Mountain Time or click on to this link http://acam.site-ym.com/search/custom.asp?id=1758 Click on Health Resources and select Physician+ link. Then select from Specialties "Chelation Therapy" from drop down list. Select country, and hit continue. You should have list of doctors certified by ACAM. (Note: In some countries you may not find any doctor). Note: Some of these treatments may not be covered by your medical insurance. Important Note: Readers are advised to be careful about using Oral Chelation products. Research shows that it may take a very long time, months or years in some cases to see any desired benefits. However intravenous Chelation Therapy many times is able to achieve these required benefits in days. Unfortunately IV therapy could be expensive as it may not be covered by your medical insurance. In that case Oral Chelation would be a alternate choice. Reported Benefits of Chelation Therapy: * Lowers Cholesterol * Helps lower blood pressure * Helps getting rid of cramps * Curb the Hair loss and even grow new hair * Reduce insulin dependence. Great for diabetics * Improve eye sight and avoid cataracts * Even post surgery cataract patients will enjoy fully restored sight *Sharpen memory and mental functions * look younger with less wrinkles and healthy nails * Avoid cold feet and hands and improve physical energy * Improved sex life * Reduce allergies * Improve cardiac health * Excellent cure for Alzheimer's disease *Helps maintain ideal weight *Reduces pain from arthritis and the list goes on. The Chelation Process Before actual treatment is scheduled your doctor should run your necessary lab reports for blood, urine and kidney functions. Also should check your blood for metal toxicity and go over your medical history including blood pressure and blood sugar. This would help your doctor to adjust your EDTA dosage and frequency of treatments. Your doctor knows best. Just follow his/her advice. If your primary doctor has covered some of these tests very recently you should take copies of these reports to this doctor, if you can. However I warn you if you will ask your primary doctor about Chelation therapy, most probably he will not approve it. You see main stream medical practitioners do not believe in these treatments. However when it was their own health involved these same doctors in several cases have opted for Chelation. According to National Institute of Health, over 800,000 patients opted for Chelation therapy in the United States in a single year! Kindly note this process is also advisable for heart patients who have already gone through the bypass as chances are the vein grafts used in bypass do get clogged again within next year or two. The chelation has been successfully used even for patients over age 90, hence age is not a issue factor normally. The process itself is painless. It is intravenous prick with a needle to start the EDTA drip. Though you are tied to IV equipment, mostly on wheels, you are free to move or use restroom as your arm is properly secured with tape. You can also simply sit with pillow supporting your back or lie down. You are free to move about, talk to other patients undergoing the same treatment, read a book or do your office / paper work, or watch TV or bring your kindle to read books like these. It is always a pleasant atmosphere. Trust
