Earthing (2nd Edition)

Earthing (2nd Edition)

By: Clinton Ober

EARTHING introduces readers to the landmark discovery that living in contact with the Earth’s natural surface charge – being grounded – naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of ageing and the ageing process itself. Earthing is the simple solution to reduce and prevent inflammation and as easy as being barefoot outdoors or sleeping, working, relaxing indoors on conductive products that conveniently ground your body to the earth. The book documents how grounding the body consistently produces these and other common benefits: * Rapid reduction of inflammation * Rapid reduction or elimination of chronic pain * Dynamic blood flow improvement to better supply the cells and tissues of the body with vital oxygen and nutrition * Reduced stress * Increased energy * Improved sleep * Accelerated healing from injuries and surgery without the hot burning inflammatory pain Throughout history, humans have maintained an electrical ground connection with the Earth that naturally curbed inflammation disorder in the body. We walked barefoot and slept directly on the Earth. We were at all times naturally charged with the healing energy of the Earth. EARTHING shows us how to re-establish that link. Today, however, we mostly live and work insulated from the Earth. We wear non-conductive shoes with synthetic soles, walk on carpeted floors and sleep in elevated beds. We rarely go barefoot outside. We’re disconnected. Consequently, our bodies become chronically charged with inflammation. This unnatural development represents an overlooked reason why immune dysfunction and inflammation-related health disorders have dramatically proliferated over the last half-century, ravaging adults and children alike. We’ve lost our electrical roots, the Earth’s electrical ground that serves as our primordial anti-inflammatory protection. Earthing is a missing link in the health equation. This book tells why and what to do about it.

Book cover for Dyslexia and other learning difficulties Third Edition by Mark Selikowitz

Dyslexia and other learning difficulties

Dyslexia and other learning difficulties: The Facts addresses problems many intelligent children face who, while having normal IQ levels, still struggle to learn in the classroom setting. A short attention span, restlessness, an inability to write clearly, and reading comprehension well below age level are all indicators of learning disabilities, and this book offers a clear and sympathetic guide to the difficulties that parents and teachers face when working with a child with these sorts of obstacles to learning. The book deals with difficulties in traditional academic areas such as reading, spelling, and arithmetic, but also looks into lesser known conditions like clumsiness, social unease, and hyperactivity. Providing practical advice to parents to help understand their children’s difficulties and to help them overcome problems and improve their self-esteem, Dyslexia and other learning difficulties: The Facts also offers a number of suggestions for managing difficult behaviour. This new edition has been fully updated and draws on the most recent research on learning difficulties and some associated disorders and their treatments. It also provides information about electronic and computer aids that are now available to help individuals with learning difficulties. This encouraging approach and easy-to-read style will appeal to parents as well as to professionals who work with children with learning disabilities.

Cover of The Highly Sensitive Person How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D

The Highly Sensitive Person

How to cope when the world overwhelms you.

For those people who:
have a keen imagination; are labelled too shy or too sensitive; who perform poorly when being observed even though they are usually competent; have vivid dreams; for whom time alone each day is essential;
and find they are quickly overwhelmed by noise and confusion, crowded parties, hectic office life………….
this is the book to help them understand themselves and how best to cope in various situations.

Highly sensitive people are often very bright and creative but many suffer from low self esteem. They are not ‘neurotics’ as they have been labelled for so long. However, high sensitivity can lead them to cease to engage with the outside world.

The book offers solutions for a happy and fulfilling life. Particularly in the way an HSP perceives his or herself: the book helps to ‘reframe’ past events, such as a difficult childhood, or how they see themselves – ie. shy.

Particularly strong material for those raising a sensitive child

ADHD : A Hunter in a Farmer’s World

A newly revised and updated edition of the classic guide to reframing our view of ADHD and embracing its benefits

* Explains that people with ADHD are not disordered or dysfunctional, but simply “hunters in a farmer’s world”–possessing a unique mental skill set that would have allowed them to thrive in a hunter-gatherer society

* Offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters–and their parents, teachers, and managers–embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home

* Reveals how some of the world’s most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie

With 10 percent of the Western world’s children suspected of having Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADHD, and a growing number of adults self-diagnosing after decades of struggle, the question must be raised: How could Nature make such a “mistake”?

In this updated edition of his groundbreaking classic, Thom Hartmann explains that people with ADHD are not abnormal, disordered, or dysfunctional, but simply “hunters in a farmer’s world.” Often highly creative and single-minded in pursuit of a self-chosen goal, those with ADHD symptoms possess a unique mental skill set that would have allowed them to thrive in a hunter-gatherer society. As hunters, they would have been constantly scanning their environment, looking for food or threats (distractibility); they’d have to act without hesitation (impulsivity); and they’d have to love the high-stimulation and risk-filled environment of the hunting field. With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of “hunter skills” are often left frustrated in a world that doesn’t understand or support them.

As Hartmann shows, by reframing our view of ADHD, we can begin to see it not as a disorder, but as simply a difference and, in some ways, an advantage. He reveals how some of the world’s most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters–and their parents, teachers, and managers–embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home. Providing a supportive “survival” guide to help fine tune your natural skill set, rather than suppress it, Hartmann shows that each mind–whether hunter, farmer, or somewhere in between–has value and great potential waiting to be tapped.

Inclusive Education for the 21st Century : Theory, Policy and Practice

Inclusive Education for the 21st Century : Theory, Policy and Practice

Placing a student on the autism spectrum in a busy classroom with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones and an aide to deal with the inevitable meltdowns is often done in the name of ‘inclusion’, but this is integration and not inclusive. How can teachers and schools create genuinely inclusive classrooms that meet the needs of every student?

Research evidence indicates the strategies that make schools inclusive for students with disability benefit all students. Yet many schools are still operating under twentieth-century models that disadvantage students, especially those with disability.

Inclusive Education for the 21st Century provides a rigorous overview of the foundational principles of inclusive education, and the barriers to access and participation. It explores evidence-based strategies to support diverse learners, including specific changes in curriculum, pedagogy and assessment practices, and the use of data. It addresses the needs of children with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities, as well as those with complex learning profiles, including mental health issues.

With chapters from leading experts from Australia and the UK, Inclusive Education for the 21st Century addresses common issues in both primary and secondary schools. Underpinned throughout by research evidence, it is designed to assist educators to develop the deep knowledge required to make inclusive education a reality in all schools.
