When we are thrust into the role of caregiver for a loved one who is in the process of dying, it's easy to get overwhelmed.

What are the pros and cons of advanced medical treatment versus hospice at each end-of-life stage?
Most importantly, how do we say goodbye in a way that brings healing, closure, and peace?
It's the last news we want to hear-that someone we love is dying. Yet it's an inevitable part of life. With Graceful Exit, Dr. Ferrer offers this much-needed guide through the medical, legal, financial, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of dying and death.

Get Tough with Type 2 Diabetes: Master your diabetes
English | April 27th, 2018 | ASIN: B07B64J4M9, ISBN: 1781611084 | 231 Pages | EPUB | 3.13 MB
Get Tough with Type 2 Diabetes is a cutting-edge yet practical guide for newly-diagnosed and established type 2 diabetes patients and their families, by one of the UK's leading diabetes physicians.
It discusses ideas that have emerged over the past 20 years about the fundamental problems that cause Type 2, many of which may be unfamiliar to non-specialist healthcare professionals as well as patients: The primary problem is not blood glucose but fat in the wrong organs (liver and pancreas) from starchy carb consumption; High blood glucose levels occur late in the course of Type 2 - the metabolic syndrome, with hypertension and abnormal cholesterol levels, often exists years before Type 2 diagnosis; The Newcastle-type ultra-low-calorie diet can re-set the metabolism and even reverse Type 2; The Mediterranean approach to diet can significantly reduce cardiovascular risk; Managing cholesterol and blood pressure problems is at least as important as blood glucose levels; Minimising medication while overcoming complications is desirable and possible; Diabetes is closely related to depression, and other psychological issues including 'diabetic distress' and 'diabetic burnout'.
Armed with this new information and the results of important clinical trials, it is more possible than ever before to Get Tough with Type 2 without the need for progressively more and more blood glucose-lowering medication.

Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness
English | March 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B07447L3VB, ISBN: 1683640640, 1683640632 | 288 Pages | EPUB | 1.50 MB
Do you ever feel as if your spiritual search is getting you nowhere? That despite sincere intention and effort, you're reaping frustration instead of fruit? In Ending the Search, Dorothy Hunt unravels a dilemma that has vexed countless people on a spiritual path. "You may have tried all manner of practices, meditation, guru shopping, chanting, prayer, and still you have not attained your heart's desire," she writes. "This book is about the ego's spiritual ambition, its search for its idea of 'enlightenment,' its struggles and its eventual fate as seeker becomes the sought."
Ending the Search explores the deep spiritual impulse to awaken and the ways a future-focused mind "co-opts" or veils what is timelessly free, loving, and ever present. Dorothy invites us to follow our longing for truth, love, or enlightenment back to their source-the Heart that is beckoning us beyond separation. While describing and honoring different practices and paths taken in one's search for Truth, she emphasizes the practice of self-inquiry as taught by Ramana Maharshi. We are invited to search not for an idea of something "out there," but for the true identity of the seeker, the unnamable Mystery that is compassionately aware, existing right now in each of us. The book also looks at the processes of embodiment and surrender, the need for "ruthless honesty" without self-judgment, and in its concluding section, shares a vision of life lived authentically.
"The spiritual search is a call to remember who or what you essentially are," explains Dorothy Hunt. "What ends the search is actually present from the very beginning, beckoning you to come Home. In truth, you are what you seek, yet you must make the discovery for yourself." This is your invitation, with Ending the Search.

The Personalized Medicine Revolution: How Diagnosing and Treating Disease Are About to Change Forever
English | February 10th, 2015 | ASIN: B00PSSG2A6, ISBN: 1771640383 | 170 Pages | EPUB | 0.26 MB
Every one of us is unique. With recent advances in technology, we now know that that statement is more true that ever: we are each individuals, right down to a molecular level - a one-of-a-kind combination of genes, proteins, and metabolism. So why does healthcare still take a one-size-fits-all approach?
The same methods are used on everyone to diagnose illness, and the same drugs are used to treat it - despite the fact that those methods and treatments are not effective for everyone and are even harmful for some. Shouldn't our medicine be tailored to our differences? The Personalized Medicine Revolution explores recent advances in genomics, the study of the human genome - as well as its cousins proteomics, metabolomics, microbiomics, and the like - and explains how technology is even now changing the way medicine is delivered.
Along the way, it takes the reader through the five critical healthcare areas that will be transformed most radically by personalized medicine - prediction, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring - and examines the practical and ethical issues involved. Finally, it details how readers can use personalized medicine to take charge of their own health and build a stronger and safer medical system.

Testosterone Rex: Unmaking the Myths of Our Gendered Minds
English | March 2nd, 2017 | ASIN: B01LXTRVIB, ISBN: 1785781618, 1785783181 | 256 Pages | EPUB | 1.36 MB
Testosterone Rex is the powerful myth that squashes hopes of sex equality by telling us that men and women have evolved different natures. Fixed in an ancestral past that rewarded competitive men and caring women, these differences are supposedly re-created in each generation by sex hormones and male and female brains. Testosterone, so we're told, is the very essence of masculinity, and biological sex is a fundamental force in our development. Not so, says psychologist Cordelia Fine, who shows, with wit and panache, that sex doesn't create male and female natures. Instead, sex, hormones, culture and evolution work together in ways that make past and present gender dynamics only a serving suggestion for the future - not a recipe. Testosterone Rex brings together evolutionary science, psychology, neuroscience and social history to move beyond old 'nature versus nurture' debates, and to explain why it's time to unmake the tyrannical myth of Testosterone Rex.
For fans of Fine - whose Delusions of Gender 'could have far-reaching consequences as significant as The Female Eunuch' (Viv Groskop, Guardian) - and thousands of new readers, this is an upbeat, timely and important contribution to the debate about gender in society.
