Description: 

What effect does religion have on physical and mental health? In answering this question, this book reviews and discusses research on the relationship between religion and a variety of mental and physical health outcomes, including depression and anxiety; heart disease, stroke, and cancer; and health related behaviors such as smoking and substance abuse. The authors examine the positive and negative effects of religion on health throughout the life span, from childhood to old age. Based on their findings, they build theoretical models illustrating the behavioral, psychological, social, and physiological pathways through which religion may influence health. The authors also review research on the impact of religious affiliation, belief, and practice on the use of health services and compliance with medical treatment. In conclusion, they discuss the clinical relevance of their findings and make recommendations for future research priorities.
Offering the first comprehensive examination of its topic, this volume is an indispensable resource for research scientists, health professionals, public policy makers, and anyone interested in the relationship between religion and health.

Whether you're fighting a few stubborn pounds, struggling with postpregnancy weight gain, or battling a lifelong weight problem, Strong Women Stay Slim has everything you need:

Fully illustrated exercises especially designed for weight loss

Up-to-the-minute information about weight, appetite, nutrition, and fitness--explaining why this program works

A hunger-free food plan, including menus and delicious recipes from an award-winning cookbook author

Motivational secrets from sports psychology that boost self-esteem

Progress logs and extra guidance for the first ten weeks

Description: 

Prayer can heal you. It's not just hype or hope or a spiritual cliché. Recent medical and psychological studies claim that prayer can relieve stress, improve attitudes, and mend bodies. Prayer generates peace, power, and health--a triple preventative that guards against anxiety and disease. It's a simple act that heals. According to Chet Tolson and Harold Koenig, prayer helps people function at their best when life serves them the worst. Even on good days, it enhances the mind-body-soul connection. Now available in trade paperback, The Healing Power of Prayer explains the nature of prayer, what happens when we pray, the restorative benefits of prayer, how to organize prayer, and much more. The authors' facts and insights will encourage believers to increase, the fainthearted to revive, and skeptics to begin a life of prayer.

DOSSEY L

Description: 

In 1993, revered and respected physician Larry Dossey forever changed our understanding of the healing process with his phenomenal New York Times bestseller, Healing Words. Now the man considered one of the pioneers of mind/body medicine once more explodes the boundaries of healing with his most powerful book yet.

Reinventing Medicine is nothing less than a vision of the future of the practice of medicine. In his book, Dr. Dossey provides the scientific and medical proof that the spiritual dimension works in healing. Citing the work of scientists at such well-known institutions as Princeton, Harvard, and Stanford, he conclusively demonstrates that spiritual tools such as intercessory prayer, dreams, coincidence, and intuition have measurable, powerful, and profound effects on how we heal. His argument forces us to go beyond the practices of conventional medicine, which he calls Era I, and mind/body medicine, which he calls Era II, leading us to a new dimension, the spiritual, "nonlocal" dimension of Era III. What was viewed in the past as random or episodic events in healing are shown, through scientific evidence, to be related and connected to a higher force at work--Dossey calls this force the non-local mind. Through our understanding and recognition of the nonlocal mind, Dossey suggests ways in which it can be used for diagnosis and treatment, speeding the healing process, and giving clues for gaining information related to illness and pain. This vision of the coming era in medicine is one of promise and spiritual fulfillment that will surely change the face of medicine forever.
