Emotional, spiritual and mental health is a necessity to your Christian walk. Samaria is not only an anointed writer, and minister, she is a licensed therapist in the mental health field. In the Process of Emotional Healing, she uses her profession as a licensed counselor, her faith as a Christian, and her expertise of the mental health field to assist the reader in emotional healing, mental health, and spiritual recovery from a Christian perspective. In our Christian church, we have overlooked, and not acknowledged mental illness as an issue within the church. As a consequence, many Christians suffer with mental illness in silence. They are often meant to feel condemned, and like outcast from a place that is supposed to embrace hurting people. This book takes a look at mental illness, emotional hurts, and brings them to the foot of the cross of Jesus. God wants to minister to the inner man, inner healing and deliverance is possible. Mental illness is a reality even within the body of Christ. This book revolutionizes and takes the cap off our stigma, to address mental illness and recovery for the one who loves God. The hope is that through this book, you or a loved one would start the journey to mental stability, emotional wholeness, and live the life Christ died for you to have. Enjoy.

The goal of this book is to begin to present the fundamental body of knowledge which informs current approaches in complimentary and alternative medicine and to explore the role of the new professions of integrative holistic health practitioner, consultant and administrator. This book is designed to compliment, enhance, deepen and broaden the reader's existing expertise through an integrative approach which will improve his/her ability to consult, design programs and work in a variety of settings with various populations including those with medical and psychological conditions as well as those who wish to support their health and well-being. The book provides the necessary conceptual foundational frameworks for exploring how practitioners in a field of alternative medicine/holistic health know what they know in support of their work. These core ways of knowing gives them a foundation for evaluating their work, new advances in the field and affords them interrelated frames of knowledge for their continued research, expansion and integrative work in the field. Trained holistic health practitioners who may have applied one or more of these paradigms may now be able to expand their foundational and conceptual base thereby broadening their theory and techniques that are appropriate to their professional arenas. Section I is designed to explore general ways of knowing and meaning making in holistic health. Section II is designed to offer the reader/practitioner methodology regarding the creation and implementation of holistic health centers, programs and integrated consultation practices. Finally, Section III offers examples of integrative holistic health clinicians who combine and synthesize a variety of holistic health approaches and paradigms into their practices as practitioners, healers, therapists and consultants.

Her reasoned, practical alternative engages Christian theology, proposing a much broader concept of health care. An important contribution to a critical discussion.

Women have made it clear that they desire a broader, integrative approach to their care. Here, for the first time, Integrative Women's Health weaves together the best of conventional treatments with mind-body interventions, nutritional strategies, herbal therapies, dietary supplements, acupuncture, and manual medicine, providing clinicians with a roadmap for practicing comprehensive integrative care. Presenting the best evidence in a concise, accessible format, and written exclusively by female clinicians, this text addresses many aspects of women's health, including feminine perspectives on aging, spirituality and sexuality, specific recommendations for the treatment of cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, HIV, headaches, multiple sclerosis, depression, anxiety, and cancer, as well as integrative approaches to premenstrual syndrome, pregnancy, menopause, fibroids, and endometriosis. Homeopathic, Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners provide insight into the ways in which these systems manage reproductive conditions. As leading educators in integrative medicine, editors Dr. Maizes and Dr. Low Dog demonstrate how clinicians can implement their recommendations in practice, but they also go beyond practical care to examine how to motivate patients, enhance a health history, and understand the spiritual dimensions of healing.

Journey Through Chakras by Dr. Ravi & Dr. Minoo Ratan it is an illustrated guide to Chakras, their symbology, attributes and relevance there of. It also explains anatomical and physiological aspects of chakras and the role they play for our health and healthfulness. The book also deals briefly, on various tools for chakra healing and balancing, ideal for seekers and healers both. (Introduction) Chakra in Sanskrit means a wheel that spins, in Tantric context the term is used to describe the energy centers in our body. Through in ancient texts like vedas and Upanishads there is only a little written reference to the term kundalini and Chakras, as most of the knowledge, had been passed on, through Guru-shisya (disciple) lineage. In recent times the interest in Tantra had increased substantially, more so in Kundalini and Chakras. So we have proliferation of literature and Institutions providing knowledge and guidelines on Kundalini awakening and Chakra opening processes. Through this book we have tried to offer a balanced perspective of Chakras from ancient Indian spiritual and Tantric, as well as metaphysical aspects of the subject. First of all, there are people who question the very existence of Kundalini and Chakras, while some give more importance to Kundalini and may agree with the existence of Chakras, but of little importance. However, from a healer`s perspective they are more important for maintaining optimum health at any give time. Healers and alternative practitioners all over the world are using various ways to heal and balance the Chakras, in different practices they talk of different numbers and location of the Chakras. They may all be correct, from their understanding since it is all experiential and very subjective. We are all energy bodies and Chakras are considered to be the transfer points of energy. To sustain the physical body we require energy, which is received through five elements - earth (food), water, fire, air and ether, energy when consumed in one form released in another form specially from major organs in bigger clusters, viewed as Chakras. Therefore, ancient Indian texts describe seven major Chakras located in the region of the head and the torso, representing activities of our major Chakras located in the region of the head and the torso, representing activities of our major organs and glands. Evolution is a universal process, all life is evolving and man is no exception. The human being is evolving not only as an individual only but also as a race. Mooladhar is our basic and most fundamental chakra, from where our evolution begins and culminates at Sahasrara, the Crown chakra. Mooladhar or base root Chakra is located at the pelvic floor and corresponds to coccygeal plexus. In males it is located between anus and genitals while in females it is located at the posterior surface of the cervix. As the name suggests this chakra is the foundation of the physical body in realm of existence. During the process of spiritual evolution in man he goes beyond animal consciousness on to be a real human. There are certain minor Chakras from Mooladhar down to the heels, responsible for the development of animal and human instincts and intellect. This Chakra is responsible for survival and maintenance of the physical body as source of physical energy and regulates all excretory functions. Located at the lowest point of spinal column, corresponding to our sacral plexus of nerves in the public region is Swadhisthan or Sacral chakra, represents our desire center and seat of emotions. This Chakra is responsible for procreation and exchange of sexual energy and controls the unconscious in human beings. Manipura Chakra, in the naval region corresponds to Solar plexus; it controls the entire process of digestion, assimilation and temperature regulation in the body. This Chakra is also considered as the seat of EGO in human beings, as this Chakra is also responsible for the mental power and authority in all forms. The first three Chakras take care of the basic needs of all human beings, as described by renowned psychologist Abraham Maslow, in his hierarchy of needs. Only after fulfillment of basic needs man thinks of self actualization. Same way, in spiritual and tantric practices it is said that till the time we are stuck in mundane or struggling with the basic needs only, Kundalini keeps going up to third (Manipura) Chakra and returns to the Mooladhar Chakra, only when it crosses the astral bridge between Manipura and Anahat (Heart) Chakra its movement is only upwards.
