Book excerpt: With the number of natural and human-caused disasters increasing dramatically these days, as are dire predictions for the future, you might consider learning how to treat illness yourself when medicines and hospitals are no longer available and you or a family member becomes acutely ill, or, for example, has contracted an infection—a deadly problem without antibiotics. With homeopathy, you can make your own medicines and treat yourself, your family and pets. This book will show you how. You and your family can become independent of medical assistance for most acute illnesses by learning the basic, simple methods presented in this book of how to use homeopathic remedies. Treat acute illnesses yourself at hardly any cost, without needing expensive, toxic and side-effect producing chemical drugs, while improving the general health level and life quality of yourself and those close to you. Here are some specific benefits you can enjoy: Nip the flu in the bud with just one pill as soon as you notice flu symptoms. You are on your way home on a warm day after a long day’s work in an air-conditioned office and notice a sore throat coming on, and that you feel a bit out of sorts. Realizing that a cold is building up, you reach into your homeopathic remedy kit and take an Aconitum 200 C pill. By the time you arrive home, the budding cold is gone. Recover quickly from injuries, operations, childbirth and dental work. After a tooth extraction at the dentist’s, your wife comes home complaining of pain. Naturally she has refused an antibiotic from the dentist, knowing that you will deal with the problem using homeopathic means. She has already taken Arnica 200C from her remedy kit after leaving the dentist’s office. You give her another suitable homeopathic remedy, such as Staphysagria, and the next day there is hardly any pain at all—no antibiotics needed. Cure fear of flying before you travel. You are at the airport going on a business trip, when you meet a friend. She tells you she is afraid of flying and quite anxious regarding her pending flight. You offer to help her with a homeopathic pill, which you tell her contains no chemicals—only information that will stimulate the body to cure itself. She is willing to give it a try. Some weeks later you see her again on the street and she thanks you profusely, as her fear of flying had vanished like magic before boarding the plane. Greatly speed up your child’s recovery from childhood illnesses such as the measles. Your young son tells you that his friend and others at the school have come down with the measles. You implement the homeopathic immunization programmed of giving Pulsatilla 200C once a week while the epidemic lasts, and your son avoids the measles and acquires immunity to the disease. Help your dog or cat, or other pet, recover rapidly from injuries, bites and other traumas. You bring a young cat into the family as a companion for an older cat named Toby you have. However, Toby does not receive the newcomer very well. He hisses and strikes out at your new cat called Sweetie. Not a very pleasant situation, but you know how to deal with it. You add the homeopathic remedy Hyoscyamus 1M to Toby’s drinking bowl one day and two days later on arriving home, to your surprise, you see the two cats cuddled up together on the bed, the best of friends. In extreme survival situations you will be able to treat yourself and your loved ones by making your own homeopathic remedies. Suppose you and your family find yourselves isolated, civilization around you has collapsed, perhaps you are out in the wild to escape deteriorated and hostile city conditions. Your son has cut himself on a rusty metal part while looking for food and he is running a fever. You have learned how to make the correct homeopathic antibiotic remedy for this using a proven method taught in this book. Rather than passing on to another plane, your son recovers completely in some days. Your wife is extremely grateful. Bird flu, or any other lethal flu, strikes and there are thousands of sick and dying people in your town, while waiting for the medical authorities to produce a sufficient quantity of a possibly effective vaccine in six months’ time. With the information contained in this book you prepare a homeopathic remedy in your kitchen to treat your sick daughter and neighbors, some of which are in very bad shape. They all recover after a very difficult bout with the bird or whatever flu, but they are alive. There you are. Considering the times we are living in, purchasing this book will be a prudent investment that can save your life as well as the lives of your family members, friends and pets. It will certainly improve their health and life quality. This is cutting-edge technology, way ahead of the current level at which medicine is practiced. This book contains information never presented in this concise and practical manner, including advances in the creation and transmission of homeopathic remedies not mentioned in standard literature on homeopathy. A new and simpler approach to treating illness awaits your discovery. Homeopathy has been around for more than 200 years and has a proven track record as practiced by medical doctors and laymen alike, with an enviable record of cures in epidemics. You can join the ranks of vanguard practitioners of the medicine of the future. Purchase Family Homeopathy and Survival Guide (pdf, US or UK English), by clicking HERE.

Download or read book Before Your Pregnancy written by Amy Ogle and published by Ballantine Books. This book was released on 2011-05-24 with total page 608 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now completely revised and updated, the classic guide that helps mothers- and fathers-to-be conceive more easily and boost the odds of a healthy pregnancy Covering preconception and interconception (between-pregnancy) well-being for women and men, Amy Ogle and Lisa Mazzullo draw on new research from their complementary fields of expertise and reveal how good preconception health can lower the risk of pregnancy complications and improve lifelong health.

Download or read book The Kind Mama written by Alicia Silverstone and published by Rodale. This book was released on 2014-04-15 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The bestselling author of The Kind Diet offers practical solutions for a healthier, more vibrant approach to new motherhood When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of looking at diet and lifestyle as key factors, doctors are racing to pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable, sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal. Once their babies are born, they assume it will be just as challenging—from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits and constant trips to the doctor. It doesn’t have to be that way. In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone shows that if we kick nasty foods that fight our bodies and replace them with nutrient-rocking “clean” foods that heal and nourish, we can create a more positive baby-making experience, from conception through the third trimester (and beyond). By encouraging basic diet and lifestyle modifications and drawing on wisdom from medical experts, friends, and her own experience, Silverstone has created a one-stop guide that empowers women to take charge of their fertility and pregnancy, and helps them to embark on a healthier, more vibrant path to parenthood.
