The Reflexology Manual
An Easy-To-Use Illustrated Guide to the Healing Zones of the Hands and Feet
Paperback      ISBN: 0892815477

An ancient therapy used in China, Egypt, and India, reflexology provides effective, holistic treatment for both common and more serious disorders.

Reflexology harnesses the body's healing energy by stimulating specific pressure points on the hands and feet, alleviating the energy blocks that can cause pain or disability and restoring optimum health. In The Reflexology Manual, the practical text guides the reader in mastering these self-help techniques, and color photographs illustrate a full reflexology treatment step by step.

Full-color illustrations throughout.

Detailed diagrams of pressure-point zones on the hands and feet.

Clear explanations of how to work with the energy meridians.

Nutrition and Mental Illness
An Orthomolecular Approach to Balancing Body Chemistry
Paperback      ISBN: 0892812265

Believing that drugs and psychoanalysis were not always the best course of treatment for a variety of mental illnesses, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer began an extensive program of research into the causes and treatment of mental illness, and in 1973 opened the Brain Bio Center in Princeton, New Jersey. Here, with a team of scientists, he found that many psychological problems can be traced to biochemical imbalances in the body. With these patients, he achieved unprecedented success in treating a wide range of mental problems by adjusting diet and providing specific nutritional supplements for those conditions where deficiences exist. This book documents his approach.
Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed as schizophrenic; many more suffer from depression, anxiety, and phobias.

Dr. Pfeiffer's methods of treatment presented in Nutrition and Mental Illness are a valuable adjunct to traditional therapies, and can bring hope of real wellness to many of those who suffer.
