The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

[Read by Lloyd James]

A pioneering researcher and one of the world's foremost experts on traumatic stress offers a bold new paradigm for healing.

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat on a daily basis; one in five Americans have been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Such experiences inevitably leave traces on minds, emotions, and even on biology. Sadly, trauma sufferers frequently pass on their stress to their partners and children.

Renowned trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain's wiring - specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Based on Dr. van der Kolk's own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score offers proven alternatives to drugs and talk therapy - and a way to reclaim lives.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea.

But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.

As Jenny says:

"Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos.


"Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you'd never guess because we've learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal. Like John Hughes wrote in The Breakfast Club, 'We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.' Except go back and cross out the word 'hiding.'"

Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."

Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in Furiously Happy, she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right.

Healing Anxiety and Depression
Dr. Amen has pioneered the clinical use of brain SPECT imaging in psychiatry. His clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Scans have also determined that anxiety and depression often occur together, and there are seven distinct types of disorders. HEALING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain and offers guidelines and tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression from which one suffers, and providing a comprehensive program for treating each type. This is a groundbreaking guide to conquering these devastating disorders.

The Optimistic Child: A Proven Program to Safeguard Children Against Depression and Build Lifelong Resilience
In The Optimistic Child, Dr. Martin E. P. Seligman offers parents, teachers, and coaches a well-validated program to prevent depression in children. In a thirty-year study, Seligman and his colleagues discovered the link between pessimism-dwelling on the most catastrophic cause of any setback-and depression. Seligman shows adults how to teach children the skills of optimism that can help them combat depression, achieve more on the playing field and at school, and improve their physical health.

As Seligman states in his afterword for this edition, "Teaching children optimism is more, I realized, than just correcting pessimism. . . . It is the creation of a positive strength, a sunny but solid future-mindedness that can be deployed throughout life-not only to fight depression and to come back from failure, but also to be the foundation of success and vitality."

The key to running's therapeutic power lies in its lasting physiological effects, inducing changes in brain structure and chemistry that other forms of exercise don't. Thanks to the body's release of natural pain-relievers that includes the best mood boost in all of sports.

Running is my therapy is no longer just a mantra for seasoned runners; with science behind him, Douglas presents proven methods so that we can all use running to improve our mental health and live happier-in and out of running shoes.

A Mind of Your Own: The Truth about Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives
[Read by Cassandra Campbell]

A groundbreaking, science-based, and holistic approach to treating depression -- not as a disease, but as a systemic imbalance -- that will rescue millions of women currently taking pharmaceuticals or considering it.

Last year alone thirty million Americans were prescribed $12 billion of antidepressants -- SSRI's are steadily becoming a traditional medicine panacea for depression, anxiety, panic attacks. Patients -- overwhelmingly female -- are looking for solutions, but according to Dr. Kelly Brogan, the help these women want can't be found at the pharmacy. Antidepressants are not only the wrong way to treat depression, but their long-term use can permanently dismantle the body's self-healing mechanisms. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the brain is to heal the body.

Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings combined with years of evidence from helping her own patients, Dr. Brogan illuminates the real cause of depression: it is not a simple neurochemical disorder but rather a complex inflammatory disease -- a manifestation of irregularities in the body that start far away from neural synapses and serotonin. In A Mind of Your Own, she demolishes the myths traditional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression, and offers a proscriptive, step-by-step thirty-day action plan -- including dietary modifications, over-the-counter supplements, detoxification, sleep, and stress reduction techniques -- women can use to heal their bodies, eradicate inflammation, and feel like themselves again.

Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own challenges readers to question their assumptions and regain control of their own well-being -- and on their own terms.

RESULTS FROM APPLICATION:

"I suffered for years, ever since I was a kid, from sinus pressure. It would get so bad, I couldn't even bend over to pick up a pencil!

"And as a result, I'd have migraine headaches.

"Dianetics handled the source of my headaches - the reactive mind.

"I can't explain the feeling that I had at that time. The pressure just blew. I could feel it come off my face and it was such a relief.

"I walked around for months thinking, 'Okay, when is it going to come back?

When is it going to start?' It never did. It was just gone."

- K. F.


"My marriage was headed for divorce. And even though we loved each other, something had come between us and we didn't know what it was.

"We tried everything. We went to a marriage counselor, we even went to a psychiatrist and the end result was we still were headed for divorce.

"So just when I was about to file the final papers, a close friend of ours insisted, absolutely insisted, that we try Dianetics.

"And that was when we knew what had come between us - it was the reactive mind.

"So not only did Dianetics give us the tools to save and rebuild our marriage, but we love each other more today than the day we got married."

C. L.

 

"Dianetics enabled me to realize my potentials and find the success I had always sought."

K.B., Top Investment Counselor

 

"When I was 14 my life  became an uphill struggle.  A severe injury left me with a crippling back pain 24 hours a day.  I was told I would require treatment for the rest of my life and I wold have to live with the pain.  Over the next 12 years, I Iooked everywhere for a solution.  I even became a Doctor  of Chiropractic, but still nothing could make the pain stop.   Finally, I tried Dianetics, and I found that the pain was being caused by the reactive mind.  Within a few hours I stood up and, for the first time in 12 years, the pain was gone.   Dianetics has the answers!"

S.P., Doctor of Chiropractic

 

"I had a terrible accident and fractured my neck, and as a result was in a terrific amount of pain.  The doctors did everything that they could to try and handle it, and while my neck did heal, the pain persisted.  I began to take drugs to suppress the pain, and I became hooked on drugs.   That was the end of my motorcycle racing career.

"Then I found Dianetics and I found that the pain was in fact  coming from the reactive mind, because Dianetics handled it.  And I was no longer hooked on drugs when the pain was gone.

 "I started racing motorcycles again - this was ten years after the accident - and I went right to the top in racing motorcycles here in the United States.  Then I began training others and in fact I've trained ten of the last twelve national superbike champions.  None of this would ever have happened it it wasn't for Dianetics."

K.C., Champion Motorcycle Racing Instructor
