Combating Acidosis Correctly
Dr Wolfgang R Auer

Most people are familiar with the concept of a negative shift in pH balance (also called the acid/alkaline balance), but most are unaware of its relationship to other health problems and diseases. Acidosis--a condition in which the body is excessively acidic--is often at the root of many common health complaints. Acidosis can affect every level of the human body, including mental outlook, metabolism, organs, tissues, cells, molecules, atoms, and chromosomes. All too often, acidosis-related health problems are not recognized for what they are and are diagnosed as incurable or treated improperly. Many people are led to believe that they have no choice but to learn to live with the assorted complications of acidosis without knowing exactly what they're up against.
As Dr. Wolfgang Auer explains, this condition and its consequences can be prevented and reversed. In "The Acid Danger," you'll find the basic ideas and facts about acidosis. You'll learn about the causes of this condition and steps you can take to cure or prevent the problem.

If you suspect that you have acidosis, reading this book can help you avoid misdiagnosis and unsuccessful treatment. It is up to you to take control of your health. "The Acid Danger" provides the tools, but you must use them to regain good health.

A Parent's Healing Touch
Donna Finando

Techniques that allow parents to be active agents in providing relief and healing when illness occurs in their children

• Reveals the importance of touch in both childhood development and healing

• Details acupoint and trigger point therapy techniques for most common childhood ailments, including asthma

• Identifies when to seek professional help vs. situations that can be handled at home

Touch is critical to the development of babies and children. It establishes both their sense of self and their connectedness to the rest of the world. Donna Finando shows that touch is also key to restoring health when illness occurs. As a mother and grandmother, she has experienced the frustration and helplessness of watching a sick child suffer. As an acupuncturist and massage practitioner, she has found there are many simple ways parents can provide relief and even healing for many common ailments that afflict children by using touch therapy.

Trigger point therapy releases restricted muscles and acupressure allows energy to flow freely, activating the body’s remarkable healing abilities. Colds, sore throats, ear infections, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, and even asthma are some of the common conditions that can be relieved by touch therapy. Finando presents an in-depth explanation of each condition, providing information on causative factors, dietary and behavior recommendations, point techniques that can offer relief, and when to seek medical help. The gentle techniques that form this healing practice also extend to other parent-child interactions, offering a comprehensive model for the care and nurturing of children.

For Chronic Pain and Injuries
Hans-Ulrich Hecker and Kay Liebchen

Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatments involving endless rounds of drugs or expensive physical therapy - that may or may not offer relief. In ACUPRESSURE TAPING authors Hecker and Liebchen present a comprehensive guide to a new method of pain treatment - acutaping - which offers a much simpler and more effective alternative. In acutaping elastic tape is placed over the afflicted area in accordance with related acupuncture points. During the course of normal movement throughout the day the elastic tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area. Because the skin adheres to the tape it is shifted against the subtissue during motion causing lymph tissue to drain and connective tissue to be massaged. Step-by-step instructions are illustrated in full colour detailing how to self-treat pain in all parts of the body. The authors show how most bodily dysfunctions can be self-treated through this innovative method. In combining elements of Chinese medicine with osteopathy acutaping produces a method of treatment for ailments ranging from chronic back pain and tennis elbow to menstrual pain and migraines. Acutaping is an easy and effective treatment - without side effects - that offers welcome relief to sufferers of chronic pain.

Yance's holistic approach, called the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System (ETMS), is based on extensive scientific research, more than 25 years of clinical practice and excellent results with thousands of patients. It centres on four interconnected groups of health tools: botanical formulations, nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle.

Enhancing Chi Energy in the Vital Organs
Mantak Chia

From the Taoist point of view, good health depends upon the free flow of chi - healthy life-force energy - throughout the body. Taoists refer to healthy chi as good wind. When energy is trapped in the body it stagnates and becomes negative, manifesting in the symptoms of physical or emotional illness. Taoists call this negative energy sick or evil wind. The advanced Chi Nei Tsang practices focus on mastering these winds. They include techniques for developing sensitivity to sick winds, releasing internal energy blockages and chasing sick winds from the body to re-establish a healthy flow of energy.

Negative energies caused by stress, tension and the effects of past illnesses tend to accumulate in the naval centre, so the advanced Chi Nei Tsang techniques use elbow pressure on specific reflex points around the navel to release energy blockages associated with each internal organ. They also work with wind access points found near the standard acupuncture points. These advanced practices build upon the organ detoxification and rejuvenation practices introduced in Chi Nei Tsang, allowing the practitioner to work intensively at an energetic level toward the restoration of optimum health and well-being.

• Works with the navel centre, where negative emotions, stress and illness accumulate

• Presents advanced techniques to release negative energy from the body and re-establish a healthy flow of vital energy to internal tissues and organs

The Medical Breakthrough in Natural Immunotherapy
Fred Pescatore

The lowly mushroom, grown quietly, in the dark, has suddenly sprung onto the health scene as a miracle cure. Once castigated as a mere fungus, the mushroom has acquired a signature cachet in the form of Active Hexose-Correlated Compound (AHCC), a nutritional product made from healing mushrooms fermented in rice bran. AHCC is used in over 700 clinics and hospitals in Japan, mainly in cancer treatment.

THE SCIENCE OF AHCC reveals what the Japanese have known for decades: AHCC is as well-researched as any conventional prescription drug. The quality control of AHCC is so stringent that it would easily qualify as a licensed pharmaceutical, but the manufacturers believe that this would limit its availability to the many people in Japan—healthy people, who use it as a preventive as well as for a variety of other purposes. Because it is actually a mushroom-based food, even though it is often made available in capsule form, it is extremely safe for anyone to take, including children, pets, frail elderly people and patients who have undergone surgery.

THE SCIENCE OF AHCC explores AHCC in depth, explaining:

· how it is manufactured
· how it is used in clinics in Japan and other parts of the world
· its safety and efficacy
· the scientific evidence supporting its striking versatility and profound effectiveness for a wide variety of conditions
