Your Emotional Type

Author: Michael A. Jawer
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781594778025
Release Date: 2011-10-19
Genre: Health & Fitness

Your emotional type as the means to finding the right treatment for your chronic illness or pain • Provides an easy questionnaire to find your emotional type • Identifies the connections between emotional type and 12 common chronic ailments: asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel, migraines, PTSD, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcers • Explains which of 7 mind/body healing therapies works best for each emotional type Different people process their feelings in different ways--your emotional style is a fundamental aspect of who you are. It affects more than just your outlook on life; it can affect your well-being as well. Many chronic ailments are not the result of germs or genes but are rooted in our emotional biology. The link between emotional type and health explains why modern medicine--which views treatment as “one size fits all”--often fails to successfully treat chronic pain and illness. Examining the interplay of emotions, chronic illness and pain, and treatment success, Michael Jawer and Dr. Marc Micozzi reveal how chronic conditions are intrinsically linked to certain emotional types and how these ailments are best treated by choosing a healing therapy in line with your type. Explaining the emotional ties behind the 12 most common chronic illnesses--asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, post-traumatic stress disorder, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcers--the authors provide an easy assessment survey that allows you to identify your emotional type as well as the ailments you are susceptible to. Extending this connection between mind and body, they assess 7 alternative healing therapies--acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, meditation, yoga, guided imagery, and relaxation techniques--and indicate which methods work best for each emotional type. Empowering you as a patient to seek out the therapies that will work best for you, this book offers a welcome path to effective pain relief and sustainable health.

Head Cases

Author: Elaine P. Miller

ISBN: 9780231537117
Release Date: 2014-02-18
Genre: Philosophy

While philosophy and psychoanalysis privilege language and conceptual distinctions and mistrust the image, the philosopher and psychoanalyst Julia Kristeva recognizes the power of art and the imagination to unblock important sources of meaning. She also appreciates the process through which creative acts counteract and transform feelings of violence and depression. Reviewing Kristeva’s corpus, Elaine P. Miller considers the intellectual’s “aesthetic idea” and “thought specular” in their capacity to reshape depressive thought on both the individual and cultural level. She revisits Kristeva’s reading of Walter Benjamin with reference to melancholic art and the imagination’s allegorical structure; her analysis of Byzantine iconoclasm in relation to Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of negation and Hegel’s dialectical negativity; her understanding of Proust as an exemplary practitioner of sublimation; her rereading of Kant and Arendt in terms of art as an intentional lingering with foreignness; and her argument that forgiveness is both a philosophical and psychoanalytic method of transcending a “stuck” existence. Focusing on specific artworks that illustrate Kristeva’s ideas, from ancient Greek tragedy to early photography, contemporary installation art, and film, Miller positions creative acts as a form of “spiritual inoculation” against the violence of our society and its discouragement of thought and reflection.

In nur 6 Minuten zur Heilung – was unmöglich erscheint, haben die beiden Ärzte Alex Loyd und Ben Johnson, die gemeinsam eine Krebsklinik mit alternativen Heilverfahren leiteten, geschafft.

In ihrem Buch schildern sie weitere sensationelle Heilungsergebnisse – doch wirklich frappierend ist die Einfachheit dieser Methode: Man führt zweimal pro Tag eine Folge von vier Handpositionen aus, was gerade mal sechs Minuten dauert – das schafft jeder. Und die Ergebnisse sind einfach überwältigend! «Dr. Alex Loyd hat die ultimative Heilmethode entwickelt – sie ist revolutionär. Der einfachste Weg, gesund zu werden und es zu bleiben.» (Marc Victor Hansen, «Hühnersuppe für die Seele»)
