Jadwiga Radon Provides Weapon to Fight Diabetes with New Book

coverRadon

Dog Ear Publishing releases “America Not That Beautiful” by Jadwiga Radon

A diabetic shares tips and tricks for dealing with diabetes in this new self-help book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although freedom and resources enhance the U.S.’s image as a land of plenty, that reputation has a dark side: obesity. In her new book, an author and diabetic challenges Americans to change their lifestyle while they still can. As she points out, diabetics struggle with their condition, but hard work and dedication – including eating correctly and exercising – can help them beat the disease.

“America not that Beautiful” describes basic human behavior, noting that sometimes eating – a necessary fact of life – can become an addiction, especially the high-calorie types readily available in the United States at corner stores, gas stations and grocery stores. That addiction, when accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle and other risk factors, can lead to diabetes. Radon writes about her diagnosis with Type II diabetes and how she worked to fight the disease through modifying her diet and increasing her exercising. Her efforts paid off: Today she is 25 pounds lighter, her cholesterol is within normal limits and she is prediabetic rather than a diabetic.

Radon aims to provide inspiration and practical tips to fighting diabetes, sharing suggestions for daily activities and good habits, information on counting carbohydrates and tips for shopping for food. Diabetic-friendly recipes such as lima beans with sausage and deviled eggs made with avocado incorporate easy-to-find ingredients and good nutrition. The book closes with a chapter devoted to inspirational quotes from historic figures and some inspirational thoughts from the author.

Author Jadwiga Radon. who has diagnosed with diabetes in 2009, taught for 32 years before moving to the United States from Poland to be closer to her only child, a daughter. She is a retired teacher interested in psychology, history and politics. Radon, who moved to the United States in 2001 from Poland, enjoys the mountainous area of Idaho, where she lives. She is in her sixties and walks and hikes to stay healthy.

Physician Assistant Pairs Traditional Medicine Headline with Alternate Remedies to Boost Health; Elsie Taylor Releases New Book

coverTaylorE

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Hungry for Wellness” by Elsie Taylor.

The author of this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing offers tips to prevent disease and create healthy lifestyles by making informed choices.

Preventative health care is as simple as making correct dietary choices, getting regular exercise, reducing stress, getting regular rest and participating in uplifting activities. That’s the claim of author Elsie Taylor, a physician assistant and lifelong practitioner of alternative healing methods. When the body and its organs function in harmony, people can prevent disease, gain energy and reduce the chance they’ll develop a chronic illness – reducing the cost of health care.

“Hungry for Wellness” describes not only exercises and techniques to boost health but the theories behind them. Taylor details steps for weight loss, diets for specific conditions such as high cholesterol, mental health and its impact on physical health and tips for outer beauty and health such as skin care. She draws on principles supported by her mother and father, who were familiar with nature’s remedies and the properties of herbs. Taylor also promotes a spiritual component to health as part of whole-patient care for those who need healing. She reveals common myths about food – like some fats being healthy – and offers a chapter geared to vegetarians. Her practical advice – such as don’t drink with meals because it dilutes digestive – is written in terms laymen can follow with ease.

Author Elsie Taylor is long-acquainted with holistic approaches to wellness. Both her parents used herbs to treat their children’s minor illnesses. She attended nursing school full time while a single mom. Taylor attended Sanford University’s Primary Care Physician Assistant program, learning complementary and integrated theories, blending traditional Western medicine with such things as healing touch, herbal remedies and acupuncture. She has worked with cancer patients in San Francisco and as a primary care provider to public housing clinics in Minnesota.

Movement’s Connections to Health Take Center Stage in New Book by Laura Cox and Karen Studd

coverStuddCox

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Everybody Is a Body” by Karen Studd and Laura Cox.

Two notes experts in movement offer their insights into how movement affects all aspects of life, including mental and physical pain, in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Movement is a fundamental human activity, but increased reliance – and use – of technology has changed how people interact with the world. This new book purports that even as people can connect with each other across the globe almost instantaneously, people are becoming increasingly disembodied, leading to “dis-ease” in physical, emotional and intellectual selves. Authors Karen Studd and Laura Cox, noted experts in movement, promote awareness of the potential and power of human movement as a means of expression.

“Everybody Is a Body” aims to help readers re-discover movement and how they relate to all people, whether they are professional athletes, performers or couch potatoes. Movement is such an unconscious, constant presence that people can begin to feel disconnected from body experiences and even their own physical existence. Technology and increasing specialized movements can enhance that disconnection. The authors write that this feeling, which they describe as “not feeling comfortable in one’s own skin,” can develop into actual chronic pain and disease. Movement awareness helps avoid stress and stressful situations, contributing to better health and well being.

The book cover all aspects of movement, starting with a chapter on basic information about movement itself and including chapters on how movement relates to language, posture and moving the whole body, moving portions of the body, the beauty of rotation, core support, the dynamic expression of movement, body shape, expression of space, and awareness. Language itself is infused with references to movement, the authors point out, especially when describing emotions: someone’s heart wrenches when parting with a loved one or a person will lose his breath when taking in a spectacular view. But studying movement is not simply an academic exercise, the authors note. Understanding movement and keeping in touch with how someone’s physical being relates and moves in the world is important to experiencing life to its fullest. As the authors write, “Knowing something about who you are as a mover leads to greater knowledge about who you are as a person.”

Author Karen Studd, who teaches movement analysis, somatics and dance, is master teacher for the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, teaching internationally for training programs in movement analysis. She also serves as professor at George Mason University. Studd, known as a “body language expert,” has a master’s degree from the University of Oregon and is a certified movement analyst and registered somatic movement therapist and registered somatic movement educator. Laura Cox, a certified movement analyst and registered somatic movement educator and therapist, teaches Laban/Bertenieff movement studies, dance, kinesiology and somatics. Cox, who has a master’s degree in dance and dance education from New York University, has taught internationally and has a private practice in movement education, specializing in working with people suffering from chronic pain or injury. She’s been a faculty member of New York University and the University of Nebraska among others.

New Book by R. Eugene Chieppo Provides Prescription for Living Happier Lives

coverChieppo

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Health and Aging 101: What Makes You Tick by R. Eugene Chieppo.

Understanding the relationships between mind and body, including little-known information about the brain, can lead to a happier, healthier life, notes the author of this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Good health – a trait many people seek – is within reach if people understand the relationship between their conscious and unconscious minds. That’s the theory put forward by the author of a new book focusing on health and aging. R. Eugene Chieppo notes that the main difference between the conscious and subconscious selves is that the subconscious would prefer things to remain the same even as the conscious works to improve life.

By promoting understanding of the relationship between the different aspects of the mind and body, “Health and Aging 101: What Makes You Tick” aims to guide others to eliminate things related to mental anguish such as anxiety, obesity, depression, and smoking and other addictions. Learning “what makes you tick,” the author writes, can help people open themselves up to happiness. Chieppo shares his own experience with successfully quitting smoking in 1965 when he rediscovered the book “Solar Plexus of the Abdominal Brain,” which talked about more than one type of brain. Applying those lessons of mind over matter this time helped Chieppo to stop smoking within two weeks.

Put in its simplest terms, the “conscious self is the resident caretaker of the body,” the author writes. As such, the conscious self may possess knowledge of how the body functions but most caretakers fail, leading to illness in mind and body. Chieppo urges readers to question conventional treatment and prevention espoused by agencies such as the FDA, AMA as they seem to focus on managing symptoms without promoting prevention. Chapters on aging, eating for better health, supplements and positive expectations further promote Chieppo’s vision of people taking charge of their own health and extending their lives through a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection.

Lara Ketter Releases Memoir Chronicling her Crusade Against Chronic Daily Headache and Chronic Pain

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Not This Lifetime, I’ve Got a Headache!” by Lara Ketter.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Not This Lifetime, I’ve Got a Headache!” by Lara Ketter.

A daily headache sufferer describes her experiences dealing with a daily headache and chronic pain in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The author sprinkles her memoir-of-sorts with humor despite the seriousness of her condition.

Imagine living with the sometimes nagging and sometimes raging pain of a headache all day, every day. That’s the situation author Lara Ketter has endured ever since a double whiplash car accident in Tulsa, Okla., nearly 20 years ago. In this new book, she takes a lighthearted look at the desperate – and even bizarre – measures she’s taken to relieve the chronic pain while remaining sane.

In “Not This Lifetime, I’ve Got a Headache!”, Ketter notes that she’s not alone because 45 million U.S. residents suffer from chronic recurring headaches, according to the National Headache Foundation. The self-taught expert in pain carefully details how her headache started, medical treatments she’s tried, both traditional and alternative, her mental health and what she’s learned during this difficult journey. Ketter uses humor to discuss this serious issue that rules her life, joking about wanting a full-body transplant and comparing her search for a headache cure to the search for a lost civilization.

Ketter tries a wild array of treatments for headache and body pain, by traditional doctors and practitioners who operate on a cash-only basis, dryly describing being poked and prodded, adjusted, massaged, manipulated and hooked up to an electrical current. Discovering the connection between trigger points and pain becomes a turning point – as long as Ketter doesn’t overdo the massage. The book also includes a list of tips for those on a quest to eliminate chronic pain while living with it. The author’s attempts to remain upbeat about her search to find pain relief gives hope to other sufferers of headache pain and the realization that they are not alone.

Author Lara Ketter grew up in the newspaper business, working at her parents’ four weekly newspapers before and after college, including writing a weekly humor column. Ketter, who has a communications degree from Kansas State University, created and published Great Plans Magazine with her father. She writes a column for the quarterly Tipton Times newspaper and blogs on her website, LaraKetter.com.

New Book by Sienna Taylor Shares Women’s Fight Against Nature and Gravity

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Dolls, Dark Chocolate, Martinis, and Botox: One Woman’s Journey through the Maze” by Sienna Taylor.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Dolls, Dark Chocolate, Martinis, and Botox: One Woman’s Journey through the Maze” by Sienna Taylor.

A Minnesota writer uses humor to explore the effects of aging on women – and all women try to do to combat it – in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although aging is inevitable, not everybody feels resigned to the process – especially women. In her new book, first-time author Sienna Taylor presents a tongue-in-cheek journey of discovery, confusion, experimentation, shock and – finally – acceptance of aging. Taylor covers dolls and representations of beauty, hormones, beauty treatments and the importance of martinis and chocolate as weapons in a woman’s arsenal to stop, reverse and erase effects of aging.

“Dolls, Dark Chocolate, Martinis, and Botox: One Woman’s Journey through the Maze” details different stages in a woman’s life, starting with the youth and glowing skin she takes for granted. As decades go by, aging rears its ugly head. Cellulite and saddlebags appear, tanning adds color (but not in a good way) and hair appears in unexpected places. “Even if you are not a vain person, the amount of changes that happen so quickly are a little shocking,” Taylor writes.

Even as she describes the long list of procedures to combat aging’s effects, Taylor eventually reaches the point where she can accept many of the changes time has wrought and celebrate womanhood. As she writes in the final chapter, “I am blessed to have a view into the world of talented and gorgeous women who show me that being a woman is an incredible and fascinating journey.”

This is the first book for author Sienna Taylor, who works in technology and lives with her golden retriever, Sammy, in Minnesota.
