Marlowe, Barbara, author.
x, 242 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : color illustrations ; 24 cm
"The inspirational story of a woman who moved mountains to provide medical care for an Iraqi girl badly burned during a roadside attack, Barbara Marlowe's determination to fight for her future daughter highlights the way love can reach across both cultures and continents. Barbara Marlowe was in her fifties when she saw the photo that changed her life. It was a photo of four-year-old Teeba Furat Fadhil, whose face, head, and hands had been severely burned during a roadside bombing in the Diyala Province of Iraq when she was just nineteen months old. It was Teeba's eyes that captivated Barbara. They were wide, dark, and soulful. They seemed to cry out with a message across continents: Help me. The story of Barbara responding to that call is as inspiring as it is improbable. With a powerful faith and determination, Barbara overcame obstacle after obstacle to bring Teeba to the United States for medical treatments--and to ultimately offer a home. A Brave Face includes material written by Teeba and her Iraqi mother, Dunia, at key moments in their stories. The book also explores the connection forged between Barbara and Dunia over the past decade--a connection that has survived the strife of war and the horrors of Al-Qaeda and ISIS."-- Back cover.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a challenging condition with a collection of possible symptomsnightmares, relentless harmful emotions (anger, fear, guilt), hypervigilance, flashbacks, and an amplified startle response. PTSD patients are at greater risk of suicide. About 80-percent of the afflicted also suffer from other psychiatric problems (depression, alcoholism, drug abuse). Some causes of PTSD are rape, combat exposure, child abuse, accidents, and fire. Psychiatrist Jain (the daughter of immigrants from India with a family history of trauma) incorporates anecdotes of her patients to help explain the etiologies, diagnoses, and treatments of PTSD. A sampling includes a woman who is sexually assaulted as a teenager and later endures her baby's SIDS death, a marine who served in Iraq and witnessed a street bombing that maimed or killed many civilians, and an individual badly injured in a car accident. The best treatment remains talk therapy (cognitive behavioral therapy), and medication (chiefly SSRI antidepressants) can be beneficial. Jain asserts that the importance of accessible treatment and early intervention for PTSD cannot be overstated, while also emphasizing the genuine healing value of empathy and simply listening.

In MELT Performance, nationally recognized educator, therapist, and exercise physiologist Sue Hitzmann introduces a revolutionary program centered on neurological joint stability or Neurostrength, that will revolutionize your health and performance. The foundation of MELT Performance is stability. To stay injury free, our joints must stable before we do repetitive motions. Acquiring stability allows the body to respond to the demands of motion. It's the way we were designed to function--and allows us to move more efficiently, improve coordination, and save our joints. Knowing how to check in, restore, and reintegrate joint stability before it's compromised gives an unparalleled advantage to anyone who trains hard to perform at their best."--Provided by publisher.

Part I of the book explains why this works, drawing on up-to-the-minute science as well as Drs. Mercola's and Goldhamer's decades of research and clinical experience. Part II shows how to put keto-fasting to work for your own health, with a specific protocol and practical guidelines to follow. Topics include: * How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it * The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation * How the cyclical ketogenic diet--with fasting included--differs from the conventional keto diet * How fasting can help treat diseases from diabetes to fatty liver to Alzheimer's * And much more.
