It's Not My Head, It's My Hormones

Authors:
Marion Gluck

An essential read for every woman, It's Not My Head It's My Hormones, by BHRT pioneer Dr Marion Gluck, teaches you how to optimise your hormone health and support your body, giving you the tools you need to stay well-balanced, energetic and happy. Too often women know only a little about how the complex system that controls their bodies works. Following on from Marion's first book, It Must Be My Hormones, this will directly link hormones and mood with mental health for the first time. Marion explores this link at each stage of a woman's life, from puberty to post-menopause and uncovers the light and dark side of our hormones. She delves into specific conditions that can affect mental wellbeing: premenstrual tension, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and postpartum depression. She looks at how these interact with mood, affect our day-to-day lives and how they can be treated hormonally, before reviewing all of the options available to women from contraception to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.Dr Gluck gives you all the key information needed to find optimum solutions to hormonal issues, and leaves you confident in where you want to head for a healthy and balanced future. After reading It's Not My Head It's My Hormones, you will be empowered to take back control of your body. Rather than interfering in your pursuit of happiness, your hormones will instead become your best friends for life.

Xiu Yang

Mimi Kuo-Deemer
Authors:
Mimi Kuo-Deemer

For centuries, Chinese sages, rulers and spiritual seekers have embraced a simple yet powerful principle to enable them to live in harmony with the Source of nature and all life; the art of 'self-cultivation' or, xiu yang. Xiu yang works with the idea that we can steadily nurture our capacity to being fully human and fully awake. Like a field that is patiently cultivated to optimally grow the nourishing and healthy crops, we can undertake practices aimed at smoothing out the roughness and irregularities in our bodies, minds and spirits in order to produce a deep, lasting spiritual happiness. Xiu yang promotes the idea that inner balance leads to outer radiance: in order to be in harmony with the world, we must first be in harmony with ourselves. By tending to the field of our own bodies, hearts, minds and relationships, we can start making positive changes within our lives and in the lives of others. In this nurturing lifestyle guide, Mimi Kuo-Deemer champions the contemporary value of adopting this ancient approach. Through a combination of practices from meditation and mindfulness to yoga and qigong, Xiu Yang offers a fresh approach to finding balance and bringing peace into your life, home and community. Part I: The Art of Xiu Yang Part II: Xiu Yang for a Healthy and Harmonious Body Part III: Xiu Yang for a Balanced Mental and Emotional Life Part IV: Xiu Yang for a Happier Place in the World

In an age where self-esteem is seen as essential to mental health, we are seeing unprecedented rises in mental health difficulties from depression anxiety, eating disorders and many others.

In this book bestselling author Harry Barry challenges the conventional wisdom and explores why the terms self-acceptance, self-respect and self-actualization are more helpful in developing positive mental health. In his trademark style he also provides practical examples of what we should all be doing instead to build confidence and reach our full potential.Part 1: The myth of self-esteemPart 2: Debunking the myth of 'low self-esteem'Part 3: Debunking the myth of 'high self-esteem'Part 4: Debunking the myth 'others can dictate my self-esteem'(p) Orion Publishing Group 2019

Gaslighting.What it is, how you can spot it - and how you can break freeHe's the charmer - the witty, confident, but overly controlling date. She's the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He's the neighbour who swears you've been putting your rubbish into his bins, or the politician who can never admit to a mistake.

The Electricity of Every Living Thing

Katherine May
Authors:
Katherine May

A life-affirming and perspective-shifting memoir of one woman's walk in the wilds as she comes to terms with an Asperger's diagnosis. In August 2015, Katherine May set out to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path. She wanted to understand why she had stopped coping with everyday life; why motherhood had been so overwhelming and isolating, and why the world felt full of inundation and expectations she can't meet. Setting her feet down on the rugged and difficult path by the sea, the answer begins to unfold. It's a chance encounter with a voice on the radio that sparks a realisation that she has Asperger's Syndrome. The Electricity of Every Living Thing tells the story of the year in which Katherine comes to terms with her diagnosis. It leads to a re-evaluation of her life so far - a kinder one, which finally allows her to be different rather than simply awkward, arrogant or unfeeling. The physical and psychological journeys become inextricably entwined, and as Katherine finds her way across the untameable coast, she also finds the way to herself. This book is a life-affirming exploration of wild landscapes, what it means to be different and, above all, how we can all learn to make peace within our own unquiet minds.
