NEW!
Prescription for Nutritional Healing, now
in its third edition, has long been America’s best-selling book on natural health,
with nearly 6 million copies in print.
Prescription for Nutritional Healing: The
A-to-Z Guide to Supplements draws on
that respected resource to present authoritative information on nearly 350 of
the most important supplements available today, in a convenient, pocket-sized
format.
Revised and expanded from the first
edition, which sold nearly 400,000 copies,
this guide explains the basic principles
of nutrition and health. Topics covered

antioxidants, enzymes, a wide variety of
natural food supplements, as well as herbs
found in health food shops and drugstores.
The book is intended to provide you and your
health care professional with a more natural
approach to healing, which may be used in conjunction with your current medical treatment.
Before taking any nutritional supplement, check
with your health care professional on its appropriateness.
PHYLLIS A. BALCH, CNC, has been a leading nutritional counselor and advocate of natural therapies
for more than two decades. She is the founder and
owner of a health food store, Good Things Naturally,
in Greenfield, Indiana.

A Woman’s Guide to a Lifetime of Good Health with Yoga
“When the mind, body, and soul are under
your control and in balance . . . it makes
you elegant, it makes you attractive, it
gives you sacredness, it gives you respect,
and it gives you wisdom.”
—FROM THE FOREWORD BY YOGI BHAJAN
From a leading gynecologist and a prominent
yoga instructor comes this innovative book
about the invigorating effects of yoga on a
woman’s physical and mental health. The
authors lead women through the health and
life cycles of Kundalini yoga, as taught by
yoga master Yogi Bhajan. Hari Khalsa applies
ancient wisdom to explain how to develop
and enhance one’s own relationship with the
mind, body, and soul. Using his expertise on
women’s health, Dr. Machelle Seibel reveals
the scientific basis for yoga’s positive effects
on the brain. Together, Dr. Seibel and Hari
Khalsa create a dialogue of spiritualism and
science, elucidating how every woman can
reap the rewards of yoga for a lifetime.
Kristen Jennings, the book’s editor, says,
“While working with Dr. Seibel and Hari
Khalsa on A Woman’s Book of Yoga, I witnessed their devotion to teaching women of
all ages how yoga can help them achieve lifelong health and well-being. The authors have
been working together for years not only to
promote fitness, but also to address women’s
health concerns and to share the insights of
the Kundalini lifestyle for spiritual and mental
growth. Their special collaboration provides
a practical and enlightening guide to yoga
for any woman.”

I just had my first baby, and although I am nursing I
can’t lose weight. Is there any diet that can help me get rid
New Mom in Westchester
of those extra pounds?
A.
?
Drs. Dean Raffelock and Robert Rountree, authors of
A Natural Guide to Pregnancy and Postpartum Health, say:
“Contrary to popular belief, not all research shows a difference between nursing and bottle-feeding mothers when it
comes to weight loss. Women are often told that they will lose
pregnancy weight faster if they nurse, but some studies show
that nursing mothers actually hold on to excess weight a bit
longer, because they need that extra five or so pounds to make
sufficient milk for their babies.
“Nursing mothers need about 500 extra calories a day. The
basic postpartum diet is a simple but healthy and wholesome
one. It can be best summed up by the following guidelines:
• Eat foods that supply your body with essential fatty
acids, such as fresh salmon, nuts, and seeds.
• Eat whole, preferably organic, foods—whole grains,
fresh vegetables and fruits, unprocessed meats,
nuts, and seeds, for example.
• Avoid refined sugars and flour, during pregnancy
and postpartum.
•
Eat foods that supply your body with antioxidants
(mainly fresh fruits and vegetables).
• Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly.
• Eat a source of nutrient-laden fiber, such as ground
flaxseeds.
“If you follow the postpartum diet guidelines, your body will
tell you how much to eat and what foods to include. You won’t
need to count calories or measure out servings to ensure that
your baby is getting what he/she needs and that your nutrient
stores are being built back up. Don’t try to increase your fat
intake, but do pay attention to the type of fat you are eating.”
If you would like to learn more on how a mother can maintain
her well-being, before and after birth, as well as ensure her
baby’s good health naturally, refer to A Natural Guide to Pregnancy and Postpartum Health, by Dean Raffelock and Robert
Rountree. With busy mothers in mind, this book is designed so
that you can benefit from each chapter individually or thumb
through the index to target specific problems and solutions if
you don’t have time to read the entire book or chapter. Additional information can be found on the authors’ website at:

the opportunity to meet you in person and listen to your remarks about the health books we

meticulous research and his own experience
as a master herbalist and psychotherapist,
Stephen Buhner offers practical knowledge
to help men navigate the forty-five most common disorders that occur at age forty and over.
Looking ahead to next year, we have some
bestsellers coming out in paperback. Among
them are Dare to Lose by Shari Lieberman,
Ph.D., CNS, FACN, The Edge by Ben and Joe Weider, and Turn Off the Hunger Switch Naturally
