"Over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Lower back pain alone accounts for more than $50 billion of lost work time and worker's compensation claims annually. And let's consider the fact that there are 600,000 knee replacement surgeries performed each year in the United States, and sadly, 20 percent of those patients end up with chronic pain after surgery. The normal "solutions" we've been taught involve seeking out more doctors, surgeries, injections, and medications, all of which have a place in healing. But when it comes to chronic pain, conventional medicine isn't getting the job done. So what can we do? In The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, which builds on the information contained in the New York Times bestseller The Tapping Solution, Nick Ortner presents a startling alternative. He lays out a step-by-step plan that teaches people how to use tapping, or EFT (emotional freedom techniques), to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Looking at the scientific research surrounding pain, stress, and tapping, he opens readers eyes to just how powerful tapping can be, and then outlines tips and techniques to address pain in both the short and long term. Nick guides readers on a journey that begins on the surface--tapping to address the pain itself--and moves to the deeper issues that often affect pain. With easy-to-follow tapping scripts and exercises to guide readers into their pasts, Nick helps them heal the emotional pain and underlying beliefs that often keep people stuck. He also addresses topics that many people don't know are associated with chronic pain, such as: Releasing the past Creating personal boundaries Dealing with toxic relationships Clearing resistance to change Understanding the power of a diagnosis Working through anger There are many different ways the brain and body can create, increase, and prolong pain. In these pages, Nick helps readers understand what is causing their pain and provides them with the tools to achieve complete and lasting pain relief. But it's about more than just pain relief; it's about empowering readers to take back their bodies, so they can live the life they most desire."--

Ephram Jennings has never forgotten the beautiful girl with the long braids running through the piney woods of Liberty, their small East Texas town. Young Ruby Bell, "the kind of pretty it hurt to look at," has suffered beyond imagining, so as soon as she can, she flees suffocating Liberty for the bright pull of 1950s New York.Ruby quickly winds her way into the ripe center of the city-the darkened piano bars and hidden alleyways of the Village-all the while hoping for a glimpse of the red hair and green eyes of her mother. When a telegram from her cousin forces her to return home, thirty-year-old Ruby finds herself reliving the devastating violence of her girlhood. With the terrifying realization that she might not be strong enough to fight her way back out again, Ruby struggles to survive her memories of the town's dark past. Meanwhile, Ephram must choose between loyalty to the sister who raised him and the chance for a life with the woman he has loved since he was a boy.Full of life, exquisitely written, and suffused with the pastoral beauty of the rural South, Ruby is a transcendent novel of passion and courage. This wondrous page-turner rushes through the red dust and gossip of Main Street, to the pit fire where men swill bootleg outside Bloom's Juke, to Celia Jennings's kitchen, where a cake is being made, yolk by yolk, that Ephram will use to try to begin again with Ruby. Utterly transfixing, with unforgettable characters, riveting suspense, and breathtaking, luminous prose, Ruby offers an unflinching portrait of man's dark acts and the promise of the redemptive power of love.
There is nothing more life changing than challenging items you harbor from the past. Even with a chronic illness at hand, you can tackle one job, or drawer at a time, and bring things full circle or much cleaner as you go. I use the "isolated method" as taking on huge lumps of organizing can be daunting for many of us.
Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?
Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).
With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

Devout Paleo followers are as diverse as the occupants of NYC. If yesterday's blog, The Paleo Diet for Fibromyalgia, left you a bit confused and skeptical, you are with good company. As I was listening to my cardiologist talk and leafing through the pamphlet yesterday I proposed a question, "So, what do you eat for breakfast?" After all, that seemed to be the first obstacle to overcome with my western diet philosophy.
"1 1/2 cups of UNSWEETENED GREEK YOGURT with blueberries," he replied. "You'll get used to it. We don't need sugar."
"But, it says limited dairy," I questioned. "So, you eat dairy everyday?"
"Yes," he answered.
After an internet swipe that evening, I noticed for the first 30 days you should not eat ANY dairy. Must be an elimination type diet I figured. As I went through more and more sites I noticed some were eating Quinoa. Some were eating more starchy vegetables.
One thing that was across the board however, was NO GRAINS and BEANS. I guess except for some that want quinoa added to the menu. I decided to start with the later and remove all grains and beans from my diet. I did have a small 2 oz. of Kefir in the morning with my powdered probiotic. That, I decided, would have to stay. After all, my stomach was still very much the size of a watermelon.
With all the first week's trails and tribulations, The Paleo Diet Solution book really helped me tread lightly in new territory and listen to my body first.
