Nutrition for intuition

April 29, 2016
Virtue, Doreen, 1958- author.
Carlsbad, California : Hay House, Inc., 2016.
xvii, 216 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm
"Nutrition for Intuition shows the connection between what we eat and our spiritual abilities. Previous books have spoken about how to become psychic, and how to trust your intuition, through meditation, prayer, and so on. And, of course, these methods are extremely effective. However, this book is different because it recognizes that meditation alone may not change your intuition if you continue to ingest unhealthy, low-vibration foods. Nutrition for Intuition speaks about how to enhance your natural gifts by combining good dietary practices with energizing spiritual techniques. This book also covers the pineal gland and its connection to clairvoyance, as well as the energetic properties of nutritional supplements like zinc and magnesium. Readers will learn exactly what to eat and drink to increase their intuition, and what to avoid in their diets"-- Provided by publisher.

Changing normal : how I helped my husband beat cancer

April 28, 2016
Henner, Marilu, author.
New York : Gallery Books, 2016.
x, 242 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 24 cm
Marilu Henner was moving on with her life after a divorce when her old college classmate Michael Brown, whom she had not seen in over twenty years, called her out of nowhere. Within days of their reconnecting in 2003, they became inseparable. But only months later, Michael was diagnosed with bladder cancer, and then lung cancer. Marilu refused to lose the love of her life so easily. With the knowledge she had gained on her own health journey, Marilu set about finding a path for Michael that would use the best of Eastern and Western medicine to beat his cancers and return him to optimal health. He eschewed most traditional treatments, and with Marilu's help--aided by knowledgeable and sympathetic doctors--he forged his own path. Here, Marilu tells the story of their fast-paced romance, contrasted with the day-to-day battle for Michael's life. Michael tells the story from his point of view: the search for the cause of his cancer, the anguish he felt as he realized how responsible he was for his condition, the physical and mental hardships that he had to overcome, and the triumph of love that made it all worthwhile. Not a "how-to" book in the traditional sense, Changing Normal is a book of empowerment, a call for all those facing similar challenges to take responsibility for their lives, to search for the causes of their illness and address them directly.
