The Strands of Health: A Guide to Understanding Hair Mineral Analysis
Rick Malter, Ph.D. gives an introduction to understanding hair tissue mineral analysis (Hair TMA) and its role in preventing disease and maintaining optimal energy and health. This book relates nutrient minerals to chronic fatigue and other common health problems that are poorly understood by traditional medicine and psychiatry. Drawing on over 20 years of personal and professional experience with hair TMA, Dr. Malter explains how the mind and body are closely connected by the effects of stress and other life style factors on nutrient minerals. This is a comprehensive book that will help you to make sense out of the vast amount of health and nutrition information that often seems contradictory and confusing. If you take vitamins and minerals, this book is essential reading. Get the book.
Shrinking the Judge: Freeing the Inner Child
Shrinking the Judge: Freeing the Inner Child describes the Judge part of everyone’s personality and how the Judge dominates a person’s Inner Child part. The book makes it easy for most people to gain a better understanding of their experience with the Judge in themselves and in others around them. Many personal stories in the book help to illustrate how the Judge can bring on anxiety or depression, how the Judge fuels addictions and dysfunctional behavior. The authors use many examples to show how it is possible to “shrink” a person’s Judge image and free the Inner Child. This results in increased self-confidence, joy in living, more creativity, and greater experience of spirituality. One client told the author that this is the best “self-help” book she has ever found. She could dump all of the rest of her self-help books, but she constantly makes use of Shrinking the Judge: Freeing the Inner Child. She discovers something new every time she picks up the book.
