Prof. Liqun Zhang is a renowned practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Austria, Europe. This book is the result of a life of Eastern and Western Medicine and being at home on three continents, Asia, North America, and Europe. Prof. Zhang explains the basic principles of TCM. In an engaging and clear way, she shows simple methods to cultivate the mind, to set up a gentle routine for daily use, explains a number of effective Qigong exercises, acupressure and self-acupressure, moxibustion, foot massage, seasonal living, and the principles of personal constitution. She describes a healthy diet as a way to help the body heal itself. Some of these TCM methods have been practiced in China for more than two thousand years. The author reminds us that the TCM lifestyle is all about a do-it-yourself approach. Small changes in the daily routine can make a big difference. Not all methods need to be applied at once. But taking one step at a time, observing the body, and listening to what we feel, will eventually lead us to the physical strength we need. Prof. Zhang provides us with the tools TCM has to offer. Life is a journey! Being healthy is the most important and happiest thing we can have. Thank you all for reading.

I am passion. I am church. I am faith. I am worship. I am praise. I am more than a conqueror. I am a believer. I am a miracle. Sam Johnson has a heart for Jesus and a mind for Christ. No matter what his challenges in life, he has learned, through his steadfast faith in God, that it is possible to view everyday life from a Christian perspective and then successfully use that perspective to cope with any challenging circumstances that arise. In a collection of poetry and other writings inspired by the gospel and his spiritual journey in Los Angeles over the past ten years, Johnson shares an introspective glimpse into his dreams, his faith in God, and the wisdom he has gained from his life lessons.

Inside My Kaleidoscope Mind is a collection of gospel-themed poetry, plays, and written works shared to inspire and encourage believers, especially in times of tragedy.
Vikki Petraitis took to writing true crime because, unlike crime fiction, it was so raw and it told the story of real people, real grief, real loss, real horror.A school teacher by day, Vikki had no idea that writing one book about one unsolved murder would give her a second career that has run alongside her chosen profession for 25 years.She has researched, investigated and written about real Australian crimes, from the well-known to the obscure; and interviewed countless police, crime scene professionals, victims, survivors and families. She did ride-alongs with members of Victoria Police so she could learn about their most memorable cases, and found herself right there with them when a serial killer's third victim was found. Vikki spent time with the dog squad learning how the four-legged police officers are trained to work with their two-legged partners. And she's become biographer to two well-known former cops, and to one of the many victims of institutional child abuse. Her career as a true crime writer has resulted in 13 books and counting, with subjects and titles as diverse as The Frankston Serial Killer, Crime Scene Investigations, Forensics, Cops, Once a Copper: Brian 'the Skull' Murphy, and the one that started it all - The Phillip Island Murder. Inside the Law is Vikki's life in crime; a collection of her favourite, personally influential, most memorable stories with a fresh narrative thread of the why, when and how she came to write them.

The Extreme Science of the Human Body from Quantum Theory to the Mysteries of the Brain
Author: Brian Clegg
Publisher: Icon Books Ltd
Built from the debris of exploding stars that floated through space for billions of years, home to a zoo of tiny aliens, and controlled by a brain with more possible connections than there are atoms in the universe, the human body is the most incredible thing in existence. In the sequel to his bestselling Inflight Science, Brian Clegg explores mitochondria, in-cell powerhouses which are thought to have once been separate creatures; how your eyes are quantum traps, consuming photons of light from the night sky that have travelled for millions of years; your many senses, which include the ability to detect warps in space and time, and why meeting an attractive person can turn you into a gibbering idiot. Read THE UNIVERSE INSIDE YOU and you'll never look at yourself the same way again.
A Self-Teaching and Laboratory Manual for Biofeedback
Author: Erik Peper
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
You have just received your new biofeedback device with its instruction manual. You ask yourself: How can I personally use the equipment to encourage my self-growth? How can I help my patient to relax his spastic colon? How best can I use the equipment with my client who has chronic anxiety? How can I use this equipment in my research examining the correlation between location of muscle contraction and specific emotions? What is the best way to teach my students an understanding of the basis of the signal and the problem of artifacts? Should I have purchased this device or would I have been better off with another type of biofeedback equipment? How can I integrate the use of this device and other biofeedback equipment with such techniques of unstressing as progressive relaxation and meditation? Can I harm myself or others, either physically or emotionally, with the equipment? Where can I look for additional information regarding the use of biofeedback equipment? These questions and others have been raised over and over in our teaching of biofeedback to both students and professionals. This manual has been structured so as to provide both background information and experiences that will allow the user to answer these questions. The manual is based on the premise that the only way to really learn (' 'know' ') about biofeedback is through self-experience.
