EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The New York Times–bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness. Now in an updated and expanded paperback edition. Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Award in Science & Cosmology In his groundbreaking work The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change its own structure and function in response to activity and mental experience. Now his revolutionary new book shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. The Brain’s Way of Healing describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the energy around us—in light, sound, vibration, and movement—that can awaken the brain’s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated chronic pain; recovered from debilitating strokes, brain injuries, and learning disorders; overcame attention deficit and learning disorders; and found relief from symptoms of autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia, with simple approaches anyone can use. For centuries it was believed that the brain’s complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease. The Brain’s Way of Healing shows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly in The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain’s performance and health.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

#1 New York Times bestseller “Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

What is neuroplasticity? Is it possible to change your brain? Norman Doidge’s inspiring guide to the new brain science explains all of this and more An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable, and proving that it is, in fact, possible to change your brain. Psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity, its healing powers, and the people whose lives they’ve transformed—people whose mental limitations, brain damage or brain trauma were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential. The Brain That Changes Itself has now sold over a million copies. It’s been chosen by the Dana Brain Foundation’s Journal Cerebrum, from among the 30,000 books on the brain in English, as the best general book on the brain, and is available in over a hundred countries and over 20 languages.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Millions of people experience symptoms of central sensitization (CS) and central sensitivity syndromes (CSS) such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and multiple chemical sensitivities. Yet many lack diagnoses, education and resources. Without proper support, some patients may become withdrawn, suffering needlessly and possibly developing mental illness. Covering the syndromes within the context of central sensitization (CS), this book provides candid personal experience, strategies for symptom management, and suggested methods for coping and long-term healing, with easy-to-understand science. This book is for both patients and medical providers who deal with Central Sensitization and/or Central Sensitivity Syndromes such as these: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Fibromyalgia Multiple Chemical Sensitivities Irritable Larynx Syndrome POTS Orthostatic Intolerance Irritable Bowel Syndrome Restless Legs Syndrome Peridodic Limb Movements in Sleep Costochondritis Migraine headaches Myofascial Pain Syndrome and several other chronic pain syndromes These conditions can be incredibly isolating and wreak havoc on all aspects of people's lives biological, psychological, social, and financial. The book teaches patients and medical providers alike about the science behind Central Sensitization and Central Sensitivity Syndromes (CSS), the overlapping nature of the syndromes, and how to manage symptoms, increase functionality, cope with the overarching impact of these conditions, and improve quality of life. Having stumbled through medical system and insurance hoops, job loss, home loss, and debilitating symptoms for nearly two years before gaining a diagnosis, Titani has a mile-long list of lessons learned. In this inspiring and educational book, she provides easily digestible scientific facts and shares her experiences with humor, compassion, and with every intention to educate both patients and medical providers, and to save patients from her mistakes and help them make their own lives better. Part handbook, part memoir, and part pure healing compassion, this book is for medical providers, caregivers, and anyone who has Central Sensitization and/or any of the CSS. In addition to gaining a firm understanding of a primary mechanism behind these illnesses, patients will discover that they are not alone with these conditions, and they will gain a compassionate companion as they confront the challenges Central Sensitization and CSS present. The book's foreword is written by Ric Arseneau, M.D., an academic internist and clinical associate professor at the University of British Columbia. He is also the director of program planning at the Complex Chronic Diseases Program at BC Women s Hospital, an innovative new program with a focus on ME/CFS, FM, MCS and related Central Sensitivity Syndromes (CSS). He has more than 20 years of experience working with patients with CSS.

Written by anger management expert Ronald Potter-Efron, Healing the Angry Brain can help you short-circuit the anger cycle and learn to calmly handle even the most stressful interactions. You will learn which areas of your brain are causing your reactions and discover how to take control of your emotions by rewiring your brain for greater patience and perspective.
