HOMEOPATHY FOR TODAY'S WORLD Discovering Your Animal, Mineral, or Plant Nature Dr. Rajan Sankaran
The most important development in homoeopathy since its discovery in the late 18th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the Sensation Method of diagnosis developed by Dr. Rajan Sankaran explains that our experience and perceptions of life's stresses are shaped by an inner pattern, or “song,” connected to one of the three kingdoms in nature - animal, plant or mineral. Revealing itself as a constant underlying sensation felt in both the mind and the body and expressed through illness and chronic ailments, this inner song of recurring reactive patterns - be it that of a competitive lion, a sensitive daisy or structured phosphorus - drives our emotions, dreams, ambitions, careers and relationships and is the underlying factor behind why stress affects each of us so differently.
Explaining that there are 7 levels to our experiences, Dr. Sankaran provides techniques to decode the words and gestures we use to describe our pain, emotions and health conditions, allowing us to probe deeper into our experiences of stress and illness to determine what animal, plant or mineral is “singing” within us. Showing how this core identity can be used by homoeopathic physicians to treat our problems at their source, he reveals how becoming aware of our inner song can reduce the intensity of its negative effects, leading to less stress, better health and more harmony in our lives.

HONEY PRESCRIPTION The Amazing Power of Honey as Medicine Nathaniel Altman
The use of honey as a healing agent is nothing new. It was an ingredient in medicinal compounds and cures made by Egyptian physicians 5,000 years ago, and its medical use has been found in other ancient practices from traditional Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurveda to Mayan shamanism. In the past ten years there has been an explosion in scientific research on honey as medicine at universities, research centres and medical clinics around the world.
Presenting the very latest scientific and medical evidence of the healing properties of honey—including that from the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand—Nathaniel Altman explores the broad spectrum of medicinal uses of honey and how these remedies can be used safely at home as well as by licensed health practitioners. He includes an extensive selection of honey-based recipes that can be used to treat common health problems—from burns, conjuctivitis and ulcers to tooth decay, diabetes and cystic fibrosis. He explains the physiological reasons why honey is so effective in treating antibiotic-resistant diseases with no side effects and honey's ability to kill “superbugs” like E. coli and MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Drawing on centuries of material from historical and folk medicine sources, he also examines the sacred role of bees from ancient Egypt onward and the modern problem of Colony Collapse Disorder, including methods for protecting our precious hives.

Since ancient times, the people of Hawaii have used hot stones for both physical and spiritual healing. Using basalt stones - fine-grained, high-density volcanic rocks with an exceptional ability to store heat - hot stone massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but, also, enhances lymph flow, removes toxins and fortifies the immune system. The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones and is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain and sore muscles. Beyond the strictly physical benefits, the massage, also, stimulates the meridians and chakras, gently dissipating energetic blockages.
This book provides step-by-step, fully illustrated instructions for treatments for each area of the body. The authors then include details on the specific healing powers of 54 gemstones, showing how to further enhance the benefits of hot stone massage with gemstone chakra treatment. For instance, in facial massage, working with amethyst can alleviate headaches and help heal skin blemishes. They also describe the therapeutic benefits of several base and essential oils and recommend specific combinations for hot stone massage.
