Holistic Anatomy: An Integrative Guide to the Human Body - Pip Waller 2010

Amazon Synopsis: Complementary and alternative approaches to health and medicine have become increasingly widespread as the limits of conventional treatments become more apparent. Holistic Anatomy presents an authoritative study of anatomy, physiology, and pathology but expands the discussion by connecting the science of the body to a variety of alternative modalities to explore how human beings exist within—and interact with—their environment, and how they experience existence in emotional and spiritual terms.

Basic scientific terminology and detailed descriptions are interwoven with informal, sometimes humorous observations, facts, and ideas about life. The mechanisms, structure, and functions of the body are explored, along with how they relate to spiritual and energetic paradigms, emotions, and ecological principles. The first half of the book covers basic anatomy and physiology, describing each major system of the body and how they interrelate. This part includes a thoughtful discussion of aging and the dying process. The second half focuses on models of health and disease, both traditional and holistic. Topics include western pathology, emotional health, five element medicine, and the spiritual cause for disease.

Holistic Lifestyle: A Layman's Guide to Eating and Living Your Way to Better Health and Happiness - Anne Hunt 2010

Amazon Synopsis: "Diets, like clothes, should be tailored to you." Holistic Lifestyle: A Layman's Guide to Eating and Living Your Way to Better Health and Happiness This is the guide that you have been waiting for, dreaming of and desperately needing to put you on a path to eating healthy that utilizes a simple program that you set up and then watch week by week the pounds vanish and your energy increase. It was created out of necessity and desperation. My husband had to have open heart surgery when he turned 42. He also had four subsequent stent placements. After the last one he decided that he wanted to change his life to become healthier. So, the two of us went on a quest to find some magic plan to become healthier that we could actually live with. He did not want to eat tofu, nuts and twigs and I did not want to have to be a gym rat. We searched for a plan that would fit our lifestyle. But, nothing really seemed right for us or gave enough instructions to cover everything.

What to do? Being a nurse, massage therapist, Reiki Master and Clinical Aroma Therapist I knew about many different modalities that influence our health. But, nothing seemed to pull it all together in one nice and easy to follow format. That was the beginning of this journey. I wanted a resource book that looked at everything, diet, exercise, stress management/reduction, how to cook, what to cook, what to wear, what to clean my house and body with, in a word one manual that encompassed all aspects of life to obtain mental, physical and spiritual health. This is a little bit about everything. I do not claim to be an expert on life or how to live it. What I have done is compiled all the things that have helped me in the past and that continue to help me to improve myself and my health. My goal was to have a resource guide that contained everything that I would need in order to obtain optimal health. - Anne Hunt

How to Live Forever - Barry Burnett 2012

Amazon Synopsis: Meet David Black, a young family doc whose solo practice has spectacularly tanked. So has his marriage; the two are not unrelated. His best friend, Oz, wants him to reinvent himself, offering their fellow Boulderites everything they need to live forever (or at least long enough for Oz to profit and retire). David balks. At first. What follows is a romp of a read, a comedy with heart - from the characters who staff the new clinic to pursuit by pheromone-crazed wildlife, a literal cliff-hanger, and the love that, in the end, might save him.

Come visit the exotic New-Age mecca of Boulder, Colorado, and get to know: David, hapless idealist and reluctant hero, Junie Blanche, Ph.D. candidate and New Orleans immigrant, Oz Garcia, entrepreneur and Master of Bad Habits, Shriana, organic beauty and trophy wife aspirant, Don Gilmore, hypochondriac and hemp magnate, Cyrus P. Flint, slowly expiring longevity scientist, Miss Paula and Dr. Biggs, fearsomely muscular HGH hawkers, Beatriz Hanacanahuolipalipalulu, Kava Kava smuggler... ...and, of course, the happy but complicated staff of the Forever Clinic - Dr. Quinn Quinn, former health guru and cross-dressing fugitive, Nancy Ouvenstrasser, lonely masseuse and closet intellectual, Adeline and Thomas Thinna, starving diet & fitness pros, and Howie Krishna, Yogitation instructor and Real Thing.

(Warning: while local statutes prohibit the distribution of How To Live Forever as a wellness and longevity guide, there remains the danger that the reader might absorb one if not more aspects of its alarmingly Reasonable Approach to Semi-Optimal Health.)
