A decade ago, Deepak Chopra, M.D., wrote Perfect Health, the first practical guide to harnessing the healing power of the mind, which became a national bestseller. The book described how breakthroughs in physics and medicine were underscoring the validity of a 5,000-year-old medical system from ancient India known as Ayurveda ("the knowledge of life span" in Sanskrit). Perfect Health went on to describe how to apply the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to everyday life. In celebration of this classic work we have created this new edition, revised and updated to include the latest medical research. Although we experience our bodies as solid, they are in fact more like fires that are constantly being consumed and renewed. We grow new stomach linings every five days, for instance. Our skin is new every five weeks. Each year, fully 98 percent of the total number of atoms in our bodies is replaced. Ayurveda gives us the tools to intervene at this quantum level, where we are being created anew each day. Ayurveda tells us that freedom from sickness depends on contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. Perfect Health provides a complete step-by-step program of mind body medicine tailored to individual needs. A quiz identifies the reader's mind body type: thin, restless Vata; enterprising, efficient Pitta; tranquil, steady Kapha; or any combination of these three. This body type becomes the basis for a specific Ayurvedic program of diet, stress reduction, neuromuscular integration, exercise, and daily routines. The result is a total plan, tailor-made for each individual, to reestablish the body's essential balance with nature; to strengthen the mind body connection; and to use the power of quantum healing to transcend the ordinary limitations of disease and aging--in short, for achieving Perfect Health. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reflecting upon the impeachment trial of former President, Bill Clinton, and remembering that the House Managers who conducted the trial were introduced on prime time television as born again Christians my interest was perked. I decided to watch the proceedings for the sole purpose of observing if these men would act the way we think Jesus would. The first thought that came to mind was the fact that the woman taken in the very act of adultery, under the Law of Moses should be stoned to death, and her accusers brought that fact to Christs attention. We know she walked away from the presence of Jesus alive and well, only being told to go and sin no more. Another event that perked my interest was the fifty two million dollars White Water investigation that yielded nothing amiss against the Clintons. Because the trial was open to television cameras, before long it was evident that the accusers did not merely want to catch the president in a lie; obviously, they wanted to humiliate him in the meanest way, without giving any thought to the prestige of the Office of the President. The trial reminded me of the Merchant of Venice in which everyone wanted his pound of flesh, and the president sat in what looked like a pack of marauding hyenas closing in on a wounded deer or an antelope calf. Because of the current hostile political climate in Washington these days, I had to extend my work to cover what it means to be called a Christian Member of Congress. The theme and conclusion are within that context, and it is hoped that many politicians and private citizens alike will benefit from this work. It is intended for Christian lawmakers in Congress and every State House and Governors mansion in the union; in fact to Christian politicians in every country on earth with a desire to honor Christ by an exemplary life. It is not intended to force religion on anyone, or to promote membership in any established Church. The hope is that it will minister to personal spiritual needs. My first two published books by PublishAmerica.com are Arlington National Cemetery Became My Classroom featuring my life story, and my 10 years of giving tours in Arlington National Cemetery. When Shall These Things Be? is an in-depth study of Daniels 70 weeks, and the prophecies of Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 24.

An "affectionate, touchingly empathetic" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times) look at old age in America today Welcome to Canterbury Tower , an apartment building in Florida, where the residents are busy with friendships, love, sex, money, and gossip-and the average age is eightysix. Journalist Dudley Clendinen's mother moved to Canterbury in 1994, planning-like most the inhabitants-to spend her final years there. But life was not over yet for the feisty southern matron. There, she and her eccentric new friends lived out a soap opera of dignity, nerve, and humor otherwise known as the New Old Age. A Place Called Canterbury is both a journalist's account of the last years of the Greatest Generation and a son's rueful memoir of his mother. Entertaining and unsparing, it is essential reading for anyone with aging parents, and those wondering what their own old age might look like.

Sienna Elizabeth Raimonde, will arrest your attention with her poetry. While she has been writing since childhood, this is her first published book. Poetry, she says, runs in her blood. Also, her two grandmothers were poets, and The Poet of the Adirondacks was her great+ grandfather. Raimonde, while a keen observer of both human nature and nature in general, speaks the language of her times through symbolism, metaphor, and simile. She composes her poetry with a unique blend of sobriety, humor, and mystery, juxtaposed with a philosophical twist that is both distinctive and unique. This is a book for everyone.

This is a collection of spiritual poems. It is the life work of Janet Bingham, who has been writing and drawing since she was a little girl. The tone of the poems is conversational and they are always easy to understand. The poems are upliffting, but also truthful. Ms. Bingham has a prophetic gift which enables her to interpret current events in her own special way. She feels that God gave her these poems and it is her responsibility to share them with as many readers as possible. The poems are varied in content, some reflecting her exposure to world literature, especially English poetry, others reflecting the many locations she has visited around her hometown of San Diego, and others are memories of her childhood visits to the back woods of Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Georgia. Life affects her very deeply and she responds to it, with careful attention to questions of faith, friendship, and love. She has a great time with the paint brush, considers her art to reflect the common people, and to be her child within, playing.
