Why is split second decision-making superior to deliberation? Gut Feelings delivers the science behind Malcolm Gladwell's Blink. Reflection and reason are overrated, according to renowned psychologist Gerd Gigerenzer. Much better qualified to help us make decisions is the cognitive, emotional, and social repertoire we call intuition, a suite of gut feelings that have evolved over the millennia specifically for making decisions. Gladwell drew heavily on Gigerenzer's research. But Gigerenzer goes a step further by explaining just why our gut instincts are so often right. Intuition, it seems, is not some sort of mystical chemical reaction but a neurologically based behavior that evolved to ensure that we humans respond quickly when faced with a dilemma (BusinessWeek).

This book considers the historical and cultural origins of the gut-brain relationship now evidenced in numerous scientific research fields. Bringing together eleven scholars with wide interdisciplinary expertise, the volume examines literal and metaphorical digestion in different spheres of nineteenth-century life. Digestive health is examined in three sections in relation to science, politics and literature during the period, focusing on Northern America, Europe and Australia. Using diverse methodologies, the essays demonstrate that the long nineteenth century was an important moment in the Western understanding and perception of the gastroenterological system and its relation to the mind in the sense of cognition, mental wellbeing, and the emotions. This collection explores how medical breakthroughs are often historically preceded by intuitive models imagined throughout a range of cultural productions.

The main topic of this book is the re-connection with your inner being. The author emphasizes the importance of using the gut feeling as your guidance system through which you are communicating with your inner being or source.There are eleven processes that he suggests you to undertake for connecting yourself with your source on a daily basis and transform your life into something miraculous.This book was written for those seekers of truth and inner light who feel that they need to free their inner child from false beliefs. Life in its eternity is abundant and provides wealth, first in vibrational sense and then in the sense of material manifestation and creation.Until recently the western society wasn't aware that besides the brain in our head, to which the rational mind is related, exists also the »second brain« located in our gastrointestinal system, in our guts. This second brain is related to the instinct feeling or intuition that is based on feelings rather than on facts and proves. From here comes the expression »gut feeling«.But everything we do in our life is mutually connected and if you want to transform yourself and achieve your goal you have to enhance also your health, adjust the diet, learn proper breathing, exercise your body, regulate your emotions, change your old beliefs... When today someone decides to change something in his life, these facts are often overlooked.Another important thing that you will find in this book is a notion or principle of vibration which is still unknown to the majority of people. This text might help you to shift your perception and accept that the universe and everything in it is vibrational, including you, your thoughts and your creating processes.In short, this book is useful in many ways for anyone who is open minded and is already on a path of self-cultivation or has a desire to start it. It contains a lot of key information that might be a missing piece that can improve your own practice and save you years of searching.Petar comment: " I'm a longtime Qigong practitioner, I have practiced healing arts for many years, I'm a blogger and YouTuber. My point of view towards life and everything is oneness, relatedness.I'm also grateful and humble for the opportunity to share information that is now written in this book."
Reading a book about an individual’s journey with a terminal bowel cancer diagnosis would ordinarily seem to be a rather depressing read. However, Kerry’s light-hearted sense of humour and unending positivity and love of life shines through in her writing. In this very personal book, Kerry overcomes the stigma of talking openly about the symptoms and treatments for bowel cancer: there are graphic descriptions of some of the intimate details of bodily (mal)functions; reflections on her research into what may have contributed to her diagnosis and nutritional and other lifestyle changes she has found helpful. Kerry shares how she has made sense of her situation and developed coping strategies, in the hope of helping others. The insights gained from this book will be valuable for a broad range of readers: patients with bowel cancer, wanting to learn more about other patients’ experiences; families and friends of bowel cancer patients (who perhaps feel uncomfortable asking those difficult questions); healthcare professionals who want a deeper understanding of their patients’ emotional, as well as physical needs; researchers exploring the lived experiences of bowel cancer patients and writers investigating comparative healthcare provision for cancer patients. Kerry’s book is an inspiring and readable story, written from the heart. Ursula Edgington.

How to Use Your Gut Feelings to Make Better Decisions at Work
Author: Gary Klein, Ph.D.
Publisher: Crown Business
Category: Business & Economics
At times in our careers, we've all been aware of a "gut feeling" guiding our decisions. Too often, we dismiss these feelings as "hunches" and therefore untrustworthy. But renowned researcher Gary Klein reveals that, in fact, 90 percent of the critical decisions we make is based on our intuition. In his new book, THE POWER OF INTUITION, Klein shows that intuition, far from being an innate "sixth sense," is a learnable--and essential--skill. Based on interviews with senior executives who make important judgments swiftly, as well as firefighters, emergency medical staff, soldiers, and others who often face decisions with immediate life-and-death implications, Klein demonstrates that the expertise to recognize patterns and other cues that enable us--intuitively--to make the right decisions--is a natural extension of experience. Through a three-tiered process called the "Exceleration Program," Klein provides readers with the tools they need to build the intuitive skills that will help them make tough choices, spot potential problems, manage uncertainty, and size up situations quickly. Klein also shows how to communicate such decisions more effectively, coach others in the art of intuition, and recognize and defend against an overdependence on information technology. The first book to demystify the role of intuition in decision making, THE POWER OF INTUITION is essential reading for those who wish to develop their intuition skills, wherever they are in the organizational hierarchy.

Delicious low FODMAP recipes to soothe the symptoms of a sensitive gut
Author: Paula Mee
Publisher: Gill & Macmillan Ltd
The low FODMAP diet is increasingly recognised as the primary management strategy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), as it results in a significant reduction of symptoms in over 70% of people who try it. However, cutting out FODMAPs (a group of short-chain carbohydrates which are frequently malabsorbed in the small intestine) can leave people at a loss as to how to eat well without using staples such as bread, pasta, dairy, onion and garlic. This book changes all of that. With 100 delicious recipes - including breakfasts such as Coconut and Mixed Seed Granola, healthy light bites like Prawn Rice Salad, and dinners that include Mexican Chicken Fajitas and Mediterranean Meatballs - you can find real relief and enjoy food once again. 'Low FODMAP eating can really help those with IBS. Think again if you believe it will be boring. The mouth-watering recipes in here will help you adjust to a way of life that can help you manage your symptoms.'

Stick with it and the benefits will last a life time!' Thomas Clarke, Client
A noted French health practitioner who has treated famous patients from Pablo Picasso to Mick Jagger offers this cutting-edge book—already a bestseller in France—on how to stay healthy by keeping one's stomach health in top shape There is a growing trend in science to think of the stomach as a "second brain" that can impact the health of the entire body. Pierre Pallardy, a well-respected French nutritionist/osteopath has, over the course of 35 years, developed simple, effective methods for preventing illness by creating harmony between the body's two "brains." Now for the first time he shares with the general public his method for improving the healthy functioning of the stomach and, consequently, the health of the entire body. The book provides a 7-step method for improving stomach health that employs breathing techniques, diet, exercise, massage, and meditation. It also explains how Pallardy's methods can combat a host of afflictions, including allergies, anxiety, asthma, back pain, cancer, colitis, constipation, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, sexual problems, and more.
