Healthier Without Wheat is the leading resource for understanding, diagnosing, and living with reactions to wheat and gluten. Critically acclaimed by Library Journal, and a 2010 Book of the Year Finalist for ForeWord Magazine, Healthier Without Wheat makes sense of a complex issue and explains why millions of people feel better when they avoid gluten. Dr. Wangen, a gluten intolerant physician, has an easy-to-understand writing style and uses patient stories with scientific facts to clearly explain how gluten intolerance causes numerous maladies and is often difficult to recognize. Most importantly, this book substantiates the much larger world of non-celiac gluten intolerance.

Judo, or the Way of Gentleness, an ideal form of physical exercise and a reliable system, of self-defense, was specially created from traditional Japanese martial arts. This book by the creator of Kodokan judo is uniquely comprehensive and the most authoritative guide to this martial art ever published. Over a hundred years ago Jigoro Kano mastered swordsmanship and hand-to-hand combat. Failing to discover any underlying principle, he set about designing a new martial art to reflect the concept of maximum efficiency in the use of physical and mental energy. Today, the concepts and techniques of judo taught at the Kodokan are the ones originally devised by their creator and collected together in this book. Covering everything from the fundamental techniques to prearranged formal exercises for both men and women, the book offers detailed explanations of how techniques are combined in two types of practice: randori (free practice) and kata (the practice of forms). In addition to a discussion of traditional methods of resuscitation, the book concludes with a useful appendix of information on the founder and the Kodokan International Judo Center, and a glossary of judo terminology. Fully illustrated throughout, Kodokan Judo will help students and instructors everywhere to discover the principles, techniques, and spirit of this popular martial art.
Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Empathy and the Practice of Medicine
Author: Howard M. Spiro, Mary G. McCrea Curnen, Enid Peschel, Deborah St. James
Publisher: Yale University Press
The book - which includes essays by physicians, philosophers, and a nurse - is divided into three parts: one deals with how empathy is weakened or lost during the course of medical education and suggests how to remedy this; another describes the historical and philosophical origins of empathy and provides arguments for and against it; and a third section offers compelling accounts of how physicians' empathy for their patients has affected their own lives and the lives of those in their care. We hear, for example, from a physician working in a hospice who relates the ways that the staff try to listen and respond to the needs of the dying; a scientist who interviews candidates for medical school and tells how qualities of empathy are undervalued by selection committees; a nurse who considers what nursing can teach physicians about empathy; another physician who ponders whether the desire to be empathic can hinder the detachment necessary for objective care; and several contributors who show how literature and art can help physicians to develop empathy.

This text takes the work of a large number of contemporary continental philosophers in semantic theory and shows how theories of meaning evolve into theories of ethics.
Author: James Hillman
Publisher: Spring Publications
In this work, Hillman's main deconstruction of therapy, he asks "What does the soul want?" and answers "Fictions that heal". By examining the three Great Originators of depth psychology--Freud, Jung, and Adler--this book looks again at what is really meant by "case history", "active imagination", and "inferiority feelings".
Questo libro parte dall'affermazione apparentemente provocatoria che "la malattia non esiste, esistono esseri umani malati", per compiere un viaggio dentro le cause psicologiche della condizione che siamo soliti considerare malattia. Di fronte a un malato dobbiamo valutare sempre la presenza di tre fattori che interagiscono: la componente genetico-familiare, la componente acquisita (per esempio il presentarsi di traumi o virus) e quella psichica, quei disagi consci o inconsci che favoriscono l'insorgenza prima di squilibri e poi di patologie a carico di tutto l'organismo. Questo libro indaga la parte emozionale dell'essere umano, con la sua azione sul sistema immunologico e neuroendocrino, come una delle motivazioni fondamentali nel generare la malattia, e come il dominio dei fattori psico-affettivi diventi fondamentale per restituire la salute, indipendentemente dal tipo di malattia.
