<p><strong>The truth about the potions, lotions, pills and needles, pummelling and energizing that lie beyond the realms of conventional medicine.</strong></p><br />Whether you are an ardent believer in alternative medicine, a skeptic, or are simply baffled by the range of services and opinions, this guide lays to rest doubts and contradictions with authority, integrity, and clarity. In this groundbreaking analysis, over thirty of the most popular treatments鈥攁cupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, chiropractic, and herbal medicines鈥攁re examined for their benefits and potential dangers. Questions answered include: What works and what doesn't? What are the secrets, and what are the lies? Who can you trust, and who is ripping you off? Can science decide what is best, or do the old wives' tales really tap into ancient, superior wisdom?In their scrutiny of alternative and complementary cures, authors Simon Singh and Edzard Ernst also strive to reassert the primacy of the scientific method as a means for determining public health practice and policy.

<p><strong>Discover the original, instinctive, non-religious form of meditation that has been lost to the world. Richard L Haight, award-winning author of <em>The Unbound Soul</em> and master of four samurai arts, shares the best-kept secret in self-improvement, cognitive development, and stress relief, which he calls the Warrior's Meditation.</strong></p><p>聽聽聽聽 <em>For people of all backgrounds, genders, and ages.</em><br /></p><p>To get a picture of the Warrior鈥檚 Meditation, imagine a battlefield scenario with a single Samurai stands surrounded by multiple opponents. A novice鈥檚 attention would jump from opponent to opponent in an anxious attempt to defend himself. Such a strategy soon tires the warrior, who will be defeated. An expert warrior will spread his attention evenly in all directions but still experience anxiety as he mentally plans his strategy. His thought and anxiety may be his downfall if his opponents are truly skilled. A master鈥檚 attention, like the expert鈥檚, is spread evenly, but he remains as calm as the surface of a still lake. With no predetermined idea of what his actions might be, his body takes the right action without a single thought.</p><p>You may wonder how the Samurai鈥檚 experience bears any resemblance to your modern life. After all, no armies or assassins seem to be trying to attack you or your town. In one way, we modern people are not so different from the Samurai. With our busy lives, we don鈥檛 have time to spend hours a day in meditation. Instead, we need a meditation that allows our actions in a high-pressure, fast-paced world to flow from a depth of awareness. The Warrior鈥檚 Meditation helps you access and express from that depth naturally.</p><p>Surprisingly, a significant body of scientific research verifies the benefits associated with regular meditation practice. Below are some of the benefits that one is likely to experience through daily meditation:</p><ul><li>Boosts health through improved immune function, decreased cellular inflammation and pain.</li><li>Boosts happiness by increasing positive emotion while decreasing anxiety, depression, and stress.</li><li>Improves your ability to introspect, which provides a more holistic, grounded life perspective.</li><li>Improves your social life as it increases emotional intelligence and compassion while reducing feelings of insecurity.</li><li>Improves your brain by increasing grey matter in areas related to paying attention, positive emotions, emotional regulation, and self-control.</li><li>Reduces emotional reactivity.</li><li>Improves memory, creativity and abstract thinking.</li></ul><p>The Warrior's Meditation is unlike any meditation. This method is flexible in application, which allows it to blend with whatever your day has in store. Through short daily sessions, these benefits will open up to you through your active life. No longer do you need to retreat from life to meditate, for with the Warrior's Meditation, you can bring calm, clear awareness and vibrant life with you wherever you are. Eventually, you will fully embody meditation as a way of being, not just a doing.</p><p><strong>Open your eyes to incredible new depths of awareness that help to bring out your greatest inner qualities - begin reading <em>The Warrior's Meditation</em> today!</strong><br /></p>
