Brain saver answers to brain inflmmation, mental health, OCD, brain fog, neurological symptoms, addiction, anxiety, depression, heavy metals, Epstein-Barr virus, seizures, lyme, ADHD, Alzheimer's, autoimmune & eating disorders
"The first of two essential books about our most complex organ -- the brain -- dives deep into why people all over the world are suffering with mental health and brain-related symptoms and conditions. In this book, find answers to 100+ symptoms, diseases, and disorders. With the advanced state of brain research today, it's easy to think that we're arming ourselves with knowledge about how best to care for our precious minds and brains. Are we? Or is the prevalence of Alzheimer's, dementia, ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, addiction, strokes, seizures, brain fog, fatigue, and more a sign that even with the headlines about mindfulness, neuroscience, and hacking the brain, we're still all too vulnerable? Burnout, deficiencies, panic attacks, vagus nerve problems, mental health struggles, neurological symptoms, and beyond -- as you search for lasting relief, it's easy to become lost and blame yourself, wondering what you did wrong. Answer: you're not the problem. With Medical Medium Brain Saver and its companion volume, Medical Medium Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes, Anthony William sheds light on our brain and nervous system. Brain Saver unveils the why behind more than 100 brain- and nervous system-related symptoms, diseases, and disorders; Protocols reveals the truth about how to heal in even more detail. Originally conceived as one life-saving book, Brain Saver had to be divided in two when it became too big to print. Each book now stands alone, so you can start with the one you need most -- or read both for a full picture of your brain's health. Medical Medium Brain Saver is designed to serve you as a lifelong reference. In it, you'll discover: What it means to have a static brain, an alloy brain, a viral brain, an emotional brain, inflamed cranial nerves, an addicted brain, an acid brain, and a burnt out, deficient brain -- and what you can do about it ; The true causes of over 100 brain- and nervous system-related symptoms, disease, and disorders ; In-depth insight into the unknown reasons for the epidemic of mental, emotional, and neurological suffering -- from everyday struggles with focus, concentration, and mood to life-altering diagnoses such as ALS, Parkinson's, and long-haul Covid ; How to protect your brain against Alzheimer's, PTSD, strokes, seizures, and more -- before it's too late ; Best of all, Brain Saver offers a way forward with specialized healing techniques. In addition to fresh perspective on how to nourish your brain and reduce your exposure to everyday toxins and contaminants, you'll find cleanse protocols, heavy metal detox guidelines, and recipes for all-new Medical Medium Brain Shots Therapy -- quick hits of medicinals in liquid form, designed to bring instant relief when the brain is under particular stress. And when you want even more healing options, you can turn to Medical Medium Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes to take the essential information this book provides to a higher level. 'We suffer for very real and physical reasons,' Anthony writes, 'and we can address those reasons at their core with the information here. When we know how to navigate this world, we have the power to heal.' If you've been searching for direction about brain, neurological, or mental health, you've finally found the answers. Whether you're just starting out or your journey has taken you to multiple neurologists, internists, and functional medicine doctors, your time has come to discover the true cause of your suffering, move forward, and heal."--From publisher.

The lost kings : Lancaster, York & Tudor / Licence, Amy.
Lancaster, York and Tudor
The century spanning the Wars of the Roses and the reigns of the Tudor kings was a volatile time of battle and bloodshed, execution and unexpected illness. Life could be nasty, brutish and short. Some met their end in battle, others were dragged to the block, losing everything for daring to aspire to the throne. Some were lost in mysterious circumstances, like Edward V, the elder of the Princes in the Tower. But the majority of these young men died in their teens, on the brink of manhood. They represent the lost paths of history, the fascinating 'what-ifs' of the houses of York and Tudor. They also diverted the route of dynastic inheritance, with all the complicated implications that could bring, passing power into some unlikely hands. This book examines ten such figures in detail, using their lives to build a narrative of this savage century.

The other family doctor : a veterinarian explores what animals can teach us about love, life, and mortality / Fine, Karen R.

"All Creatures Great and Small meets Being Mortal in this compelling memoir of one woman's dream to become a veterinarian in a field historically dominated by men, and how, through her work both with her patients and their people, she comes to better understand humanity, mortality, and the unique role animals play in our lives. Karen Fine always knew that she wanted to be a vet and wasn't going to let anything stop her: not her allergy to cats, and not the fact that in the '80s veterinary medicine was still a mostly male profession. Inspired by her grandfather, a compassionate doctor who paid house calls to all his (human) patients, Dr. Fine persevered, and brought her Oupa's principles into her own practice, which emphasizes the need to contextualize pets' care in terms of their stories. And in The Other Family Doctor, Dr. Fine shares all these touching, joyful, heartbreaking, and life-affirming tales that make up her career as a vet. There's the feral cat who becomes a creature out of a fable when he puts his trust in a young vet to heal his injured paw; the pot-bellied pig who grows too big to fit in the car but remains a cherished part of her family; the surprising colony of perfectly behaved ferrets; the beloved aging pet who gives her people the gift of accompanying them on one final family vacation; and the dog who saves his owner's life in a most unexpected way. Woven into Dr. Fine's story are, of course, also the stories of her own pets: the birds, cats, and dogs who have taught her the most valuable lessons-how we can be better caretakers of the animals in our lives and, ultimately, of ourselves"--Provided by publisher.
