A revised edition of the New York Times bestseller that will help you conquer ADD—from the author of The End of Mental Illness. Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a national health crisis that continues to grow—yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Neuropsychiatrist Daniel G. Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment. Now, in this all-new, revised edition, Dr. Amen again employs the latest medical advances in the field, including the largest brain imaging study ever completed on patients with ADD, to identify, examine, and demystify the 7 distinct types of ADD and their specific treatments. With updated recommendations for nutraceuticals and/or medications targeted to brain type, diet, exercise, lifestyle interventions, cognitive reprogramming, parenting and educational strategies, neurofeedback, and more, Dr. Amen’s revolutionary approach provides a treatment program that can lead sufferers of ADD to a normal, peaceful, and fully functional life. Sufferers from ADD often say, “The harder I try, the worse it gets.” Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD.
So connected, we disconnected and find ourselves desperately alone drowning in an ocean of infinite possibilities. “A masterpiece that beautifully demystifies the evolutionary role of loneliness, echoes a powerful existential message for mankind, and amplifies people’s faith in the power of love.” Jack Canfield -Co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul™ Meticulously researched and written, #Loneliness: The Virus of the Modern Age explores the fierce scientific, psychological and spiritual impact of loneliness – a problem that has become an ironic epidemic in a world that is more interconnected than ever before. In a world where communication is instant, where billions of people can interact at just a moment’s notice, it will come as a shock to many to learn that loneliness is an epidemic more rampant and destructive than at any point in history. Almost everyone faces adversity from the isolation that causes us some degree of depression, anxiety or diminished self-esteem. We have become accustomed to a new way of being alone together in a technological cocoon that covers up our real pain. Our true essence is hidden behind facades that we show to the world from the fear of being judged, criticized, and rejected. This is what brings us out of a natural state of healthy balance, is the root cause of disease, and what creates the segregation experienced worldwide. #Loneliness is a global call for people to redefine themselves in the face of life's most significant challenges. Comforting, moving, and spiritually practical, this book is a guide to help you break through your apparent loneliness, and shift you toward crowd-nurtured world peace and the next stage in our evolution. Loneliness not only disintegrates your mental and physical health but also infects your genome and leads to multiple changes while painting a dark and negative picture of the world around you. The most surprising thing to learn is that today’s obsession with technology does nothing more than simply awaken the segregation, discord, and loneliness already inside us all, which further spirals our moods and outlook. Read this book to make you aware of that problem, create a road map that safely guides you out of your dis-empowered states, and empower yourself to redefine the meaning of your life so you can overcome adversity with ease and build the happiness and prosperity you so deeply crave. Use it to reveal how inner discord creates your deceptive loneliness, which is spontaneously appearing around the world in the form of war, racism, nationalism, xenophobia, homophobia, illness, high divorce rates, financial crisis, and so much more. A life manual that shows you how to extract wisdom from every life adversity, so you become a more balanced, mindful, and heart-centred individual, leader, parent, teacher, and human being. If you let it, each page will guide you and encourage you to make the changes that your soul is craving. The principles and ideas shared will teach you how to listen to your heart in ways you didn’t know possible, amplify your awareness and ultimately break free of the cocoon that is stopping you from seeing and embracing the beauty of this world. But it goes beyond you as individuals; it will teach you how to unite and ignite humanity’s collective voice so we can progress to the next stage of our evolution. If this is you calling, then get this book to breakthrough loneliness and live a more connected and love-infused life.

Coaching and Healing aims to redress that lack by directly approaching the topic through the lens of Integral Theory and Integral Coaching itself..."

At some point in their lives, most people will have thought: “He should never have said that” “How could she treat me this way?” “I feel guilty when I remember what I said to him” “I’m so angry I can’t bear it” Usually, we don’t feel that we can discuss these hurtful emotions, such as guilt, anger or jealousy, with our friends and families, let alone go to a GP for advice on dealing with them. We’re a nation that bottles things up, dismissing anger, frustration, hatred and guilt as largely insignificant to our minds and bodies. But powerful emotions like these do affect us in a long-term way, not only mentally but also physically, and it’s important to know how to get them under control before our health really suffers. This easy-to-follow, plain-English guide shows you why and how emotions can leave a physical scar, and talks about various life factors and influences that can lead to emotional stress. It will help you heal your emotional traumas with a toolkit of strategies, and allows you to take care of your health with a practical, hands-on approach.
