Encyclopedia of Mind Enhancing Foods, Drugs and Nutritional Substances
English | 2000 | ISBN: 0786408537 | 221 Pages | PDF | 1.2 MB
Organized into chapters covering such topics as "Foods," "Herbs," "Vitamins, Minerals, and Related Nutrients," "Hormones," and "Essential Oils," the entries cover a wide scope from foods of relative safety like honey or seaweed to synthetic drugs and additives associated with much greater risk. Within the chapters, the more than 400 entries are arranged by each substance's popular name and provide alternate names, food sources (if relevant), and information on effects, precautions, and dosage. Length ranges from a few lines to several pages for Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The effect on the human brain, not the body, is the focus. For example, although Horsemint, described as a possible aid in minimizing the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, is an entry, its in-store shelf-mate horse chestnut, a natural extract that may enhance circulation, is not. The encyclopedia does, however, describe the effects on the body that many of these substances can have. The peppermint taken to alleviate headaches can, in overdose, cause heart problems; the germanium found in aloe, barley, and ginseng and taken to improve brain function can cause kidney failure; and the wormwood ingested as a sedative can be a powerful poison.

You Can Beat Prostate Cancer: And You Don't Need Surgery to Do It
English | 2007 | ISBN: 061514022X | 256 Pages | EPUB | 1.0 MB
The task of choosing the right prostate cancer treatment is daunting. It is further complicated by conflicting information the patient receives from physicians and the Internet. This book is written by a prostate cancer survivor who now runs an international prostate cancer support group. It's about his journey and the important things he learned along the way. It is the book the author wishes had been available when he was diagnosed 6 years ago. It is intended to provide specific information for men who are at risk or have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. All major treatment options are examined and the pros and cons of each are summarized. A relatively new, non-invasive, highly effective treatment is highlighted. It is an option that cures cancer as well as any other option, but generally leaves the patient with a higher quality of life and fewer, if any, side effects. This book has been endorsed by several physicians as well as other highly respected people from all walks of life.

Reviews from the past edition:
"For the doctor who sees the occasional neuro-ophthalmology patient, this book should be an excellent resource. Residents should read this book, because they can learn the subject material. The book could also be an excellent resource on a general practitioner's shelf, because it is concise and easy to use."

"Overall, this is a very good introductory textbook for residents in ophthalmology and neurology and can be used as a quick reference book by practitioners in either discipline.

Beauty in the Broken Places: A Memoir of Love, Faith, and Resilience
English | May 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B077LSZVXP, ISBN: 0399591656 | 254 Pages | EPUB | 16.18 MB
A deeply moving memoir about a young couple whose lives were changed in the blink of an eye, and the love that helped them rewrite their future
Five months pregnant, on a flight to their "babymoon," Allison Pataki turned to her husband when he asked if his eye looked strange and watched him suddenly lose consciousness. After an emergency landing, she discovered that Dave-a healthy thirty-year-old athlete and surgical resident-had suffered a rare and life-threatening stroke. Next thing Allison knew, she was sitting alone in the ER in Fargo, North Dakota, waiting to hear if her husband would survive the night. When Dave woke up, he could not carry memories from hour to hour, much less from one day to the next. Allison had lost the Dave she knew and loved when he lost consciousness on the plane. Within a few months, she found herself caring for both a newborn and a sick husband, struggling with the fear of what was to come. As a way to make sense of the pain and chaos of their new reality, Allison started to write daily letters to Dave. Not only would she work to make sense of the unfathomable experiences unfolding around her, but her letters would provide Dave with the memories he could not make on his own. She was writing to preserve their past, protect their present, and fight for their future. Those letters became the foundation of this beautiful, intimate memoir. And in the process, she fell in love with her husband all over again.
This is a manifesto for living, an ultimately uplifting story about the transformative power of faith and resilience. It's a tale of a man's turbulent road to recovery, the shifting nature of marriage, and the struggle of loving through pain and finding joy in the broken places.
