Depression is not a Prozac deficiency! Sherry Rogers is a proponent of 'cause-oriented medicine' and proposes that depression is the same as any other illness in that the name is irrelevant - the cause is the only truly important thing. As no two people have the same set of causes this book empowers you to investigate all aspects of a patient and uncover their unique causal factors. From allergies to toxins to life circumstances she explores the full spectrum of possibilities and potential outcomes. Her credentials speak for themselves - over 16 published scientific articles, 9 books and her extensive international lecturing to practitioners and public combined with over 26 years clinical experience.

Just when you thought there was no hope, along comes this book to show you step by step the many hidden causes of depression and how to diagnose and treat them. By finding and correcting the hidden causes of depression, you will most likely find and correct the causes of many if not all of your patient's other symptoms - this is a blue print for solving most medical problems.

EMOTIONAL ALCHEMY - Tara Bennett-Goleman -Alchemists sought to transform lead into gold. In the same way, says Tara Bennett-Goleman, we all have the natural ability to turn our moments of confusion or emotional pain into insightful clarity.

Emotional Alchemy maps the mind and shows how, according to recent advances in cognitive therapy, most of what troubles us falls into ten basic emotional patterns, including fear of abandonment, social exclusion (the feeling we don't belong), and vulnerability (the feeling that some catastrophe will occur). Through the simple practice of mindfulness taught in this book, we can free ourselves of such patterns and replace them with empathy for ourselves and others, as well as the freedom to be more creative and alive.

You'll find the very latest research in neuroscience—including the neurological "magic quarter second," during which it is possible for a thought to be "caught" before it turns into an emotional reaction. And you'll discover the fascinating parallels of this science with the wisdom of ancient Buddhism—for Buddhists knew centuries ago that we can end our self-destructive habits.

This remarkable book also teaches the practice of mindfulness, an awareness that lets us see things as they truly are without distortion or judgment, giving the most insightful explanation of how mindfulness can change not only our lives, but the very structure of our brains. Here is a beautifully rendered work full of Buddhist wisdom and stories of how people have used mindfulness to conquer their self-defeating habits. The result is a whole new way of approaching our relationships, work, and internal lives.

Aaron Hoopes
- Can we achieve perfection? While true perfection is fleeting, we often achieve a moment of perfection: a state of mind that is just right, a time when we are fully attuned to the needs of our body, mind and spirit. It is the potential for achieving this type of integration that Perfecting Ourselves: Coordinating Body, Mind and Spirit seeks to tap into.

Author Aaron Hoopes explores the basic threads of the self—body, mind and spirit and demonstrates simple methods of integrating the three through breathing exercises, meditation, focused quietism and conscious living. He considers the body and how we can become more fully aware of it by examining detrimental behaviors, exploring the effect they have and suggesting ways to counter them. In particular, he shows how deep breathing exercises and conscious awareness of the breath constitute a major pathway to physical health and well-being. He then looks the mind and how we can gain more control over our thoughts and feelings. In particular, he focuses on “Quietism” an approach that includes
exercises for calming the mind and gaining clarity of thought. Finally, he discusses the spirit, which manifests itself when we have integrated a healthy, connected body with a calm, clear mind.

When integration occurs, every moment of life becomes “perfect.” We can live in balance with our self and the world around us. Through breathing and quietism, the quality of life improves. We get sick less often and recover faster. Things that bothered us before become insignificant. Feelings of well-being invade us, and we feel ready to tackle any task or obstacle in our path. Follow along as Aaron leads you through simple exercises that will help you:

*Develop healthy habits one step at a time
*Holistically heal and strengthen your body
*Reduce tension and stress through mindful breathing
*Increase your connection between mind and body
*Get in touch with your “Universal Mind”
*Discover the joys of quietism
*Achieve internal balance

TIBETAN HEALINGTIBETAN HEALING, The Modern Legacy of Medicine Buddha - 
Peter Fenton
- For a healing system that has been practiced for 1300 years, Tibetan medicine is surprisingly contemporary in its assumptions. Under the guidance of skilled lama-physicians, it views good health as a balance between material and spiritual concerns and marshals an impressive array of physical, psychological, and spiritual practices in its extensive medical kit.

To explore the modern legacy of the Medicine Buddha tradition, Peter Fenton journeyed to India and Nepal to see firsthand how Tibetan medicine is practiced today and to discover whether its ancient secrets can help us improve our own well-being.

His first person account, full of fascinating stories and interviews, and illustrated with photographs, charts, and botanical drawings, demonstrates that traditional Tibetan healing is a vibrant, living system that can help each of us rebalance body, mind, and spirit - the essence of good health.

Peter Fenton's fascination with traditional healing methods has let to several previous books, including Shaolin Nei Jin Qi Gong: Ancient Healing in the Modern World and Wisdom of Tai Chi: Ancient Secrets to Health and Harmony. His article "In the Realm of the Medicine Buddha" in a recent issue of Shambhala Sun was the seed of this book-length treatment.

THE TRUE POWER OF WATERMasaru Emoto - Internationally known researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto challenged prevailing ideas of illness with his previous book The Hidden Messages in Water, which demonstrated that molecules of water are affected by thoughts, words, and feelings, and that water contains extraordinary therapeutic powers unrecognized by Western medicine. In this follow-up, he takes that research one step further by exploring the healing power of water - for example, the curative capabilities of water, the capability of prayer to change water, the response of water to music, and how an individual can promote the purity of rainwater. He explores the limitations of Western medicine and explains how many conditions that are thought of as hereditary may not necessarily be so. Written for a wide range of audiences, from cultural creatives to advocates for natural living, The True Power of Water shows how this most basic liquid that is called the foundation of life also holds the key to sustained good health and well-being.
