Explanation of the Book:

Unlock connection with your body and harness the power of self-healing. A fifth-generation practitioner of medical qigong, Master FaXiang Hou has dedicated a lifetime of study to women’s health. Qigong is the traditional Chinese practice of low-impact body movement based on the ancient theory that the beneficial flow of energy—or “qi”—through the body restores vitality and regulates the functions of the mind, body, and breath. Drawing on centuries-old knowledge, the practice protects against disease and other complications that arise when the meridians through which energy flows are blocked. Qigong has had spectacular results in patients, eliminating the need for medication and surgery that Western doctors often recommend for concerns that are simply part of the natural stages of a woman’s life. This guide contains qigong exercises with photo instructions, as well as mindful breathing techniques, acupressure, herbal remedies, a seasonal fasting plan, and 50 delicious healing recipes, including Ma Po Tofu and Lotus Root and Asian Pear Stir-Fry. Master Hou teaches women at any stage in their lives how to manage their internal energy, awaken their own powers of self-healing, and gain insight into the deep connections within their bodies. Women seeking in natural solutions to sleeping soundly, strengthening the immune system, thriving during childbearing years, taking menopause in stride, and achieving overall wellness in their lives will find answers here.

Explanation of the Book:

Focusing on practice more than theory, this collection offers new perspectives for studying the so-called "humoral medical traditions," as they have flourished around the globe during the last 2,000 years. Exploring notions of "balance" in medical cultures across Eurasia, Africa and the Americas, from antiquity to the present, the volume revisits "harmony" and "holism" as main characteristics of those traditions. It foregrounds a dynamic notion of balance and asks how balance is defined or conceptualized, by whom, for whom and in what circumstances. Balance need not connoteegalitarianism or equilibrium. Rather, it alludes to morals of self care exercised in place of excessiveness and indulgences after long periods of a life in dearth. As the moral becomes visceral, the question arises: what constitutes the visceral in a body that is in constant flux and flow? How far, and in what ways, are there fundamental properties or constituents in those bodies?

Explanation of the Book:

"As women approach the age at which they stop having their monthly period, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation and an ensuing "metabolic stall."

But Dr. Anna Cabeca's research and experience with thousands of her patients shows that there is a unique diet combination and non-pharmaceutical lifestyle interventions that can dramatically alleviate these symptoms--forever! Pairing the hallmarks of ketogenic eating (very low carb, high fat) with foods and lifestyle changes that bring the body's pH to an alkaline level (and lower cortisol production), The Hormone Fix offers women everywhere an easy-to-follow, easy-on-the-body program to help thrive through menopause and beyond. It includes recipes, meal plans, stress-reduction advice, testimonials from real women, and a 10-day quick start guide to help women trim down, get off of meds, get fit, tap into unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy levels, and completely revitalize their lives"--
