            The 2020 outbreak of coronavirus has terrified the world - and revealed how unprepared we are for the next outbreak of an infectious disease. Somewhere in nature, a killer virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a bird, bat, monkey, or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. T...his not-yet-detected germ has the potential to wipe out millions of lives over a matter of weeks or months. That risk makes the threat posed by ISIS, a ground war, a massive climate event, or even the dropping of a nuclear bomb on a major city pale in comparison. In The End of Epidemics, Duke Global Health Institute faculty member and past Chair of the Global Health Council Dr. Jonathan D. Quick examines the eradication of smallpox and devastating effects of influenza, AIDS, SARS, Ebola, and other viral diseases . Analysing local and global efforts to contain these diseases and citing firsthand accounts of failure and success, Dr. Quick proposes a new set of actions which he has coined The Power of Seven, to end epidemics before they can begin. These actions include- - Spending prudently to prevent disease before an epidemic strikes, rather than spending too little, too late - Ensuring prompt, open, and accurate communication between nations and aid agencies, instead of secrecy and territorial disputes - Fighting disease and preventing panic with innovation and good science Practical and urgent, The End of Epidemics is crucial reading for citizens, health professionals, and policymakers alike. 'Pragmatic, insightful and research-rich, this is a key volume for the policymaker's shelf.' -Nature 'Dr. Quick's urgent message makes one hope that this book will reach a huge audience and that its exhortations will be acted on everywhere.' -The Wall Street Journal 'In The End of Epidemics, Quick and co-author Bronwyn Fryer spell out the seven biggest things we need to stop those outbreaks becoming epidemics. It is an impressive wish list ... We could certainly use some of the advocacy for public heal

Dr. Daniel Fenster guides the reader through a holistic self-therapy program as well as professional treatments to address issues such as chronic pain, insomnia, high blood pressure, GERD, and... more. Fascia is a single, interconnected web of tissue that runs from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet. It surrounds every organ, every muscle, every bone, and every nerve fiber. And it has an astonishing range of functions. At Complete Wellness, New York City's #1 pain management clinic, director Dr. Daniel Fenster is using both high-tech and low-tech fascia therapies to change the lives of thousands of people for the better. With this book, you'll learn if you have fascia-related problems--and if so, how serious they are. If self-therapy is the right choice for you, Dr. Fenster outlines a simple, effective Fix Your Fascia Plan, a holistic program including stretching, foam rolling, destressing (meditation), fascia-friendly eating, hydration, and self-massage. Dr. Fenster also offers an insider's perspective on the most powerful tools in fascial manipulation: medical massage, acupuncture, cryotherapy, and trigger point therapy and trigger point injections.

            Mindfulness for the Next Generation: Helping Emerging Adults Manage Stress and Lead Healthier Lives (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

            College students and other young adults today experience high levels of stress as they pursue personal, educational, and career goals. These struggles can have serious consequences, and may increase the risk of psychological distress and mental illness among the age group now com...monly referred to as emerging adults. Scientific research has shown that practicing mindfulness can help manage stress and enhance quality of life, but traditional methods of teaching mindfulness and meditation may not be effective for college-age adults. This fully updated second edition of Mindfulness for the Next Generation describes an evidence-based approach for teaching the useful and important skill of mindfulness to emerging adults. The manualized, four-session program outlined here, Koru Mindfulness, is designed to help young adults navigate challenging tasks, and achieve meaningful personal growth. Rogers and Maytan, psychiatrists and developers of Koru Mindfulness, also discuss the unique stressors emerging adults face, identify effective teaching techniques for working with them, and review the now-robust research supporting mindfulness for stress reduction in a scientifically rigorous yet reader-friendly way. Among the features new to this edition are new data on the effectiveness of the curriculum, an introduction to the Koru mindfulness teacher certification program, and adaptations for culturally informed practice, reflecting the international appeal of Koru Mindfulness as well as its growing use outside of college settings, and extensively revised in-session scripts. Mindfulness for the Next Generation is written for therapists, teachers, health professionals, and student service providers.
