Body into Balance: An Herbal Guide to Holistic
Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner for Health & Healing An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn’t cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria Noël Groves shows you how to read your body’s signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You’ll learn how each of your major body systems — respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more — optimally functions, and you’ll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.

Holistic Living in Life Plan Communities: Providing a Continuum of Care for
If you’re retired or soon to be retired, you owe it to yourself to learn about residential options, including life plan communities. In contrast to traditional continuing care retirement communities, life plan communities recognize that seniors are retiring from work, not from life. They are designed for residents who still want to participate fully in their communities, engaging in activities, programs, and volunteer opportunities. But they also provide the security of different levels of care and assistance, available on an as-needed basis. To help you determine whether a life plan community is right for you, author Frederick Herb first describes the range of residential options for retirees. He then focuses on the structure and services of life plan communities, payment plans, and living arrangements. The book also offers detailed information to help you select the residential option that will best meet your needs and budget. You’ll learn how to understand the resident care agreement, what to inspect before moving in, and how to finance and arrange your move. With Herb’s facts and advice at your fingertips, you’ll be well prepared for an easy transition into the next stage of an enjoyable, fulfilling life.

Healing Justice: Holistic Self-Care for Change
In the context of multiple forms of global economic, social, and cultural oppression, along with intergenerational trauma, burnout, and public services retrenchment, this book offers a framework and set of inquiries and practices for social workers, activists, community organizers, counselors, and other helping professionals. Healing justice, a term that has emerged in social movements in the last decade, is taught as a practice of connecting to the whole self, what many are conditioned to ignore -- the body, mind-heart, spirit, community, and natural world. Drawing from the East-West modalities of mindfulness, yoga, and Ayurveda, the author introduces six capabilities -- mindfulness and compassion; critical thinking and curiosity; and effort and equanimity -- which can guide practitioners on a transformative and empowering journey that can ultimately make them and their colleagues more effective in their work. Using case studies, critical analysis, and skill sharing, self-care is presented as an act of resistance to disconnection, marginalization, and internalized oppression. Healing justice is a trauma-informed practice that empowers social practitioners to cultivate the conditions that might allow them to feel more connected to themselves, their clients, colleagues, and commun...
