In 1912 Edward Bach qualified as a medical doctor and embarked upon a career which not only had a profound effect on medical science, but brought to ordinary people the world over, a simple, safe and effective system of healing. Dr. Bach made a detailed study of bacteriology, immunology and homeopathy and found a clear connection between chronic disease and negative mental attitudes. It was the relationship between mind and body which formed the basis of his further research and as he became increasingly convinced that emotional harmony was the key to good health, he was determined to find a simple, non-invasive and harmless method of healing which could be used safely by everyone. The Medical Discoveries of Edward Bach tells how Dr. Bach's work developed, from his childhood hopes and dreams of a healthy society, to the discovery of a complete system of 38 natural remedies which address all aspects of human nature, emotional outlook and personality. Edward Bach was an eminent physician whose remarkable contribution to medicine, healing and humanity has yet to be fully realised.

Bach Flower Remedies for Men is written with men in mind. But it will prove invaluable to therapists, healers, lovers, wives, sisters, daughters and mothers - anyone, in fact, who has a man's welfare at heart.

In the 1920s, the physician and homeopath Dr Edward Bach made his great discovery of the healing effects of various flower essences, which resulted in thirty-eight 'flower remedies'. Bach described them as 'bringing courage to the fearful, peace to the anguished, and strength to the weak', but the therapeutic effects of the remedies go beyond emotional states. They are equally effective in the treatment of physical disorders. Julian Barnard describes how Bach made his discoveries. He examines the living qualities of the plants in their context, and looks at how the remedies are actually produced. The result is remarkable. Barnard recounts his observations so that readers can experience for themselves the complex ways in which the remedy plants grow -- their gestures and qualities, ecology, botany, and behaviour.

Examining Complementary Medicine is one of the first books to take a critical look at complementary medicine from the inside, with contributions from leading figures in this growing field of interest. Until recently, criticism and analysis of complementary therapy has come exclusively from orthdox medicine, but with the widespread adoption of complementary therapies within conventional medical therapeutic practices, the time is now right for critical self-analysis on the part of practitioners within complementary therapies. Andrew Vickers has assembled leading figures to discuss the major concepts of complementary medicine and to expose hitherto hidden flaws in the reasonong and knowledge thought to underpin complementary medicine. the controversial nature of some of the contributions is intended to provoke further critical analysis within the professions, and it is hoped that the book will contribute to an intellectually rigorous theoretical basis for complementary practice.

Discovered by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930s, the thirty-eight Bach Flower Remedies form a system of healing for the negative emotions and attitudes that may interfere with health and happiness.

Between 1953 and 1957, a group of political prisoners, codenamed X7, were incarcerated in a Siberian salt mine. They linked up telepathically with the Network of Light, groups of psychics stationed worldwide, and transmitted their story. Trapped for years deep in the earth, they began to refine the vibratory rate of the body and of surrounding matter until they could experience themselves as beings of Light—and experience Earth itself as Light. Their transmissions were transcribed by gifted American psychic Anne Edwards, future cofounder of the Scottish spiritual community Findhorn. In the 1970s, Edwards’ reports fell into the hands of British New Age leader Sir George Trevelyan, whose publication of them stirred up controversy in both mainstream and alternative communities. In this new edition, Robert Sardello not only explains the spiritual significance of these esoteric writings, but also guides readers through a process much like that described in the book. Sardello’s commentary enables readers to use the book as a guide to a path for transforming humankind and the earth, and argues persuasively that enacting this process at this moment in human history is crucial to survival and transcendence.

Flower healing is the simple and natural method of healing through personality by means of wild flowers, discovered by the late Dr Edward Bach, MB, BS, MRCS, LRCP, DPH. He was a great physician who combined compassion for all who suffer, with a deep love for Nature, her trees and plants. Dr Bach practised for many years as a Harley Street consultant and bacteriologist but gave up his lucrative practice in 1930 to devote his full time to perfecting this system of healing described in full in his booklet The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies. Nora Weeks and Victor Bullen worked with Dr Bach and it was to them that the responsibility of his work was bequeathed. In 1964, as a tribute to the doctor's work they published this book to share with others the essence of Nature within the Bach Flower Remedies. This new edition, with coloured photographs, was published in 1990 and then revised and reprinted in 1998.

Conflict of Interest in Medical Research, Education, and Practice

Collaborations of physicians and researchers with industry can provide valuable benefits to society, particularly in the translation of basic scientific discoveries to new therapies and products. Recent reports and news stories have, however, documented disturbing examples of relationships and practices that put at risk the integrity of medical research, the objectivity of professional education, the quality of patient care, the soundness of clinical practice guidelines, and the public's trust in medicine. Conflict of Interest in Medical Research, Education, and Practice provides a comprehensive look at conflict of interest in medicine. It offers principles to inform the design of policies to identify, limit, and manage conflicts of interest without damaging constructive collaboration with industry. It calls for both short-term actions and long-term commitments by institutions and individuals, including leaders of academic medical centers, professional societies, patient advocacy groups, government agencies, and drug, device, and pharmaceutical companies. Failure of the medical community to take convincing action on conflicts of interest invites additional legislative or regulatory measures that may be overly broad or unduly burdensome. Conflict of Interest in Medical Research, Education, and Practice makes several recommendations for strengthening conflict of interest policies and curbing relationships that create risks with little benefit. The book will serve as an invaluable resource for individuals and organizations committed to high ethical standards in all realms of medicine.

Film directors recognize that neurologic disease impacts mind and motility and often use it in a plot or defining scene. It should be informative and educational to deconstruct neurologic representation in film. Neurocinema: When Film Meets Neurology is a collection of film essays that summarize the portrayal of major neurologic syndromes and clinical signs in cinema. Many films approach the reality of disease quite closely, and as a result, are deeply moving and memorable. Equally important, these films say as much about consequences as they say about the disorder. Therefore, the main themes include sudden confrontation with a major neurologic illness, disability from chronic neurologic disease, and failure to lead a normal life. More than 100 fiction films and documentaries are discussed in this completely original and definitive work on how film meets neurology. The book includes nearly 50 neurology topics, explains them, and places them in a broader context. The book is accessible for all health care workers and general readership. Eelco Wijdicks is a professor of neurology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. He is the chair of the Division of Critical Care Neurology and an attending neurointensivist at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus. He has written numerous books and scientific articles on the clinical practice of neurocritical care. He is enamored with cinema and neurologic representation in fiction and documentary films. Dr. Wijdicks has written film reviews for Neurology Today and THE LANCET Neurology. He is the author of a major publication on the portrayal of coma in film and its potential effect on the viewing public.

Rumi is now acknowledged as one of the great mystical poets of the Western world, with huge sales of the many collections of his poetry. Not much is known about his life except that he lived in thirteenth-century Anatolia (now Turkey), had a great spiritual friendship with a wild man called Shams, brought an adopted daughter into his family, and was distraught when Shams finally disappeared. Rumi's Daughter is the delightful novel about Kimya, the girl who was sent from her rural village to live in Rumi's home. She already had mystical tendencies, and learned a great deal under Rumi's tutelage. Eventually she married Shams, an unusual husband, almost totally absorbed by his longings for God. Their marriage was fiery and different and, in the end, dissolved by Kimya's death - after which Shams vanished. Rumi's Daughter tells Kimya's story with great charm and tenderness. Well written and thought-provoking, it is sure to draw comparison with Paolho Coelho's The Alchemist, and also to add something fresh and new to what is so far known about Rumi.
