Is getting sick a random event-a stroke of bad luck that happens for no reason? If so, do you have to live in constant fear of catching every cold, infection, and virus that comes along? According to wellness expert Angelica Joy, the answer to both questions is resounding no. In this basic wellness guide, she reveals her own personal secrets for optimal health and immunity. Angelica shows you how to take control of your health with simple, easy strategies that don't involve counting calories, weighing yourself, or cooking elaborate recipes; you don't have to eat weird foods you dislike, or track your progress on fancy spreadsheets, either. Instead, this book offers a simple, no-nonsense approach for busy mainstream people on the go who need to live and function in the real world. Learn how to cultivate a strong immune system by creating an environment within your body that's hostile to bacteria, viruses, and disease. Use these strategies to optimize your personal health and immunity. In this ground-breaking book, Angelica debunks some conventional dietary and lifestyle myths that you grew up believing, and challenges some of your old and current definitions of balanced meals, health-supportive foods, digestively compatible food combinations, and appropriate lifestyle and entertainment choices. Sensible, no-nonsense alternatives are presented as well. Below are some of the steps you can take to amp up your health to whole new level: "Detectivize" your life. Manage food allergies. Create green environments where you work and live. Balance body pH with dietary and lifestyle fine-tuning. Learn the rules for good digestion that nobody ever taught you. Explore health-supportive nutraceuticals and holistic healing modalities. Angelica Joy is an in demand speaker and wellness consultant. For the past twenty-five years, she has been an avid student of holistic dietary and lifestyle principles and practices. In her book, Angelica imparts the fruits of her explorations and discoveries, sharing the health secrets she has personally adopted and fine-tuned to create a life of phenomenal wellness and immunity. Her health quest turned into serious avocation in the 1980's when she pioneered teaching popular whole foods cooking classes in several Connecticut communities in the days before the organic foods movement went mainstream. She also free-lanced as a whole foods chef. Her down-to-earth dietary and lifestyle strategies are easy to understand and follow. Angelica's comprehensive wellness agenda evolved from her efforts to solve series of personal health challenges. Her studies involved explorations into numerous holistic dietary and lifestyle approaches, including macrobiotics, "green" living, pH balance, food combining for optimal digestion, and allergy management. She also experimented with healing modalities of mind, body, and spirit, including homeopathy, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, and Reiki. I Can't Get Sick! offers a distillation of these explorations. Angelica is a retired educator with over thirty years of public school teaching experience. She holds Bachelor of Arts Degree from Case Western Reserve University, a Master's Degree in French Literature from New York University, a Sixth Year Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Connecticut State University, and Reiki Master Certificate. At present, in addition to wellness coaching, she enjoys writing in a variety of literary genres, and tutoring students of all grade levels and ages in a variety of academic subject areas. She is the author of a children's book entitled My Cat, Merigold. More information is available on her website, ANGELICAJOYBOOKS.Com.

When a doctor gets sick, his status changes. No longer is his role de fined as deriving from doctus, i. e. , learned, but as from patiens, the present participle of the deponent verb, patior, i. e. , to suffer, with all the passive acceptance of pain the verb implies. From pass us, the past participle, we get the word passion, with its wide gamut of emotional allusions, ranging from animal lust to the sufferings of martyrs. It is the connotation, not the denotation, of the word that defines the change of status. When a doctor is sick enough to be admitted to a hospital, he can no longer write orders; orders are written about him, removing him from control of his own situation. One recalls a sonnet from W. H. Auden's sequence, The Quest, which closes with the lines: Unluckily they were their situation: One should not give a poisoner medicine, A conjuror fine apparatus, Nor a rifle to a melancholic bore. That is a reasonable expression of twentieth-century skepticism and ra tionalism. Almost all medical literature is written from the doctor's point of view. Only a few medically trained writers-one thinks of Chekhov's Ward Six-manage to incorporate the patient's response to his situa tion. Patients' voices were not much in evidence until well into the twentieth century, but an early example is John Donne's Devotions upon Emergent Occasions (1624).

Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.

This life-affirming, instructive, and thoroughly inspiring book is a must-read for anyone who is - or who might one day be - sick. It can also be the perfect gift of guidance, encouragement, and uplifting inspiration to family, friends, and loved ones struggling with the many terrifying or disheartening life changes that come so close on the heels of a diagnosis of a chronic condition or life-threatening illness. Authentic and graceful, How to be Sick reminds us of our endless inner freedom, even under high degrees of suffering and pain. The author - who became ill while a university law professor in the prime of her career - tells the reader how she got sick and, to her and her partner's bewilderment, stayed that way. Toni had been a longtime meditator, going on long meditation retreats and spending many hours rigorously practicing, but soon discovered that she simply could no longer engage in those difficult and taxing forms. She had to learn ways to make "being sick" the heart of her spiritual practice - and through truly learning how to be sick, she learned how, even with many physical and energetic limitations, to live a life of equanimity, compassion, and joy. And whether we ourselves are ill or not, we can learn these vital arts from Bernhard's generous wisdom in How to Be Sick.

Love and tragedy, betrayal and redemption, success and failure, prison and parole, king and country, terror and triumph-all are vital parts of Leeman's saga of eight generations of his family. They won't quit; they live and die to touch the sands of the golden shore-America. For Everything a Season teaches readers when to cling, when to let go, when to fight, when to mourn, when to rejoice, and when to relax, but there is never a time-not for this family, anyway-to give up. For Everything a Season chronicles the fictionalized history of the fierce survival and intense hope of one steadfast family, a family just like a million others, whose dream it was to find freedom in America.
