Lori Ann King, “Come Back Strong: Balanced Wellness after Surgical Menopause”

English | ISBN: 0999542303 | 2017 | EPUB | 130 pages | 1,7 MB

Menopause, even the surgical kind, is not a disease. A woman’s body was created to go through this transition naturally, without interference. However, many women report challenges and symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue, and a roller coaster of emotions that leave them feeling overwhelmed, highly stressed, and out of balance. This affects their health, their relationships, and even their passion and sense of purpose. The more symptoms women have, the more hopeless and powerless they feel.
Athlete and wellness coach Lori Ann King believes that women have more control over their situation in menopause than they think. In Come Back Strong, she shares her personal journey with hysterectomy and oophorectomy, which thrust her into sudden surgical menopause—describing the vulnerable parts of her life, marriage, and experience, as well as the joys and celebrations that came from discovering a practical path back to balanced wellness.
This book is for you if you’ve had or you’re facing an impending surgery, illness, or treatment that could push you into menopause, or if you know a woman who is experiencing surgically induced menopause and want to learn the best way to support and help her. Full of practical tips and tools to help you release weight, reduce stress, and improve emotional health, as you begin to make choices and lifestyle changes, you’ll create habits that strengthen your mind, body, and emotions, find hope and feel empowered like never before.

Cannabinoids and the Brain

English | 2017 | ISBN: 0262035790 | 248 Pages | PDF | 3.94 MB

The cannabis plant has been used for recreational and medicinal purposes for more than 4,000 years, but the scientific investigation into its effects has only recently yielded useful results. In this book, Linda Parker offers a review of the scientific evidence on the effects of cannabinoids on brain and behavioral functioning, with an emphasis on potential therapeutic uses.
Parker describes the discovery of tetrahydocannbinol (THC), the main psychoactive component of cannabis, and the further discovery of cannabinoid receptors in the brain. She explains that the brain produces chemicals similar to THC, which act on the same receptors as THC, and shows that the endocannabinoid system is involved in all aspects of brain functioning. Parker reports that cannabis contains not only the psychoactive compound THC, but also other compounds of potential therapeutic benefit, and that one of them, cannabidiol (CBD), shows promise for the treatment of pain, anxiety, and epilepsy. Parker reviews the evidence on cannabinoids and anxiety, depression, mood, sleep, schizophrenia, learning and memory, addiction, sex, appetite and obesity, chemotherapy-induced nausea, epilepsy, and such neurodegenerative disorders as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s Disease. Each chapter also links the scientific evidence to historical and anecdotal reports of the medicinal use of cannabis.
As debate about the medical use of marijuana continues, Parker’s balanced and objective review of the fundamental science and potential therapeutic effects of cannabis is especially timely.
