There are ways to improve your immunity against inflammatory conditions and even eating disorders. Health is more than looking fit, the right weight, shape or, following yet another crazy fad diet. We are what we eat, and it is most important to find out exactly how the immune system works. This book will explain the immune system functions; how it becomes impaired; what autoimmune diseases are; what proper nutrition is; types of deficiencies and toxins to avoid; tips on eating healthy; how you can improve and strengthen your immune system; alongside other benefits. Before you embark on any form of immunity improvement or diet plan with the help of a medical professional, it is crucial to understand basic immunology. The immune system is an incredibly vast network of cells, tissues, and organs that coordinate your body’s defences against threats to your health. Without a healthy immune system, there is no protection against billions of bacteria, viruses, and toxins that would transform anything minor from a paper cut to a seasonal cold, fatal. So how does the immune system work? 1. Language: English. Narrator: sangita chauhan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/118258/bk_acx0_118258_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Females make up the greater percentage of those affected by eating disorders; however, males are not immune to the disorder. Males can also fall victim to Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Compulsive Overeating. Eating disorders are not caused by a single known cause. In fact, the majority of the individuals struggling with this disorder have developed it after numerous factors paved the way. These issues surrounding weight, diet, and body image can prove highly dangerous to the physical and mental health of an individual. Because poor body image is at the core of those struggling with eating disorders, it is no surprise that this disorder is associated with depression. The treatment´s success is proportional to the timing of problem diagnosis. The more time that elapses after harmful habits have developed and become routine, the greater the difficulty is to break the unhealthy patterns. Eating disorders are responsible for tremendous damage to both the body and mind, and the longer it is left untreated the greater the danger. If you feel that you or a loved one may be struggling with an eating disorder, it is imperative to seek immediate attention. This book will give the listener further insight into this female and male issue. From what an eating disorder is to where it stems from, pregnancy concerns, and treatment; this book will not only inform but offer helpful insight for professional help. 1. Language: English.

Personality is the way of thinking, feeling, and behaving that makes a person different from other people.

Overcoming Body Image Disturbance:A Programme for People with Eating Disorders Lorraine Bell, Jenny Rushforth
All of the titles in the Stahl´s Illustrated series are designed to be fun. Concepts are illustrated by full-color images that will be familiar to readers of Stahl´s Essential Psychopharmacology, 3rd edition, and The Prescriber´s Guide. The visual learner will find that these books make psychopharmacology concepts easy to master, while the non-visual learner will enjoy a shortened text version of complex psychopharmacology concepts. Each chapter builds on previous ones, synthesizing information from basic biology and diagnostics to building treatment plans and dealing with complications and comorbidities. Novices may want to begin by looking through all the graphics and gaining a feel for the visual vocabulary. Readers more familiar with these topics should find that going back and forth between images and text provides an interaction with which to vividly conceptualize complex pharmacologies. Each book ends with a Suggested Reading section to help guide more in-depth learning about particular concepts.
Personality of adolescents predisposed to developing eating disorders:Personality traits, self-esteem and body image disturbances may predispose eating disorders Adilia Suzette Feio Silva
Explaining that an impaired capacity for connection to self and to others underlies most psychological and many physiological problems, clinicians Laurence Heller, PhD, and Aline LaPierre, PsyD, introduce the NeuroAffective Relational Model™ (NARM), a unified approach to developmental, attachment, and shock trauma that emphasizes working in the present moment. NARM is a somatically based psychotherapy that helps bring into awareness the parts of self that are disorganized and dysfunctional, without making the regressed, dysfunctional elements the primary theme of the therapy. It emphasizes a person´s strengths, capacities, resources, and resiliency, and is a powerful tool for working with both nervous system regulation and distortions of identity such as low self-esteem, shame, and chronic self-judgment.
