An ancient form of meditation that employs yogic breathing and other mind-body techniques, Kundalini yoga is also a clinically-proven therapeutic protocol, used to treat a range of psychiatric issues and disorders. In this follow-up to his book Kundalini Yoga Meditation (Norton, 2007), David Shannahoff-Khalsa shares a bounty of techniques that have never before been published (even in trade books), and teaches clinicians how to incorporate these methods into their own practices. Chapters address the primary and current challenges for treating psychiatric disorders; the weaknesses of current conventional treatments; specifics for diagnosis; and multipart treatment approaches that can be applied to different disorders including schizophrenia, personality disorders, developmental disorders, and multimorbidity (organized by age ranges and health conditions). Also included are various case histories and corresponding treatment approaches.

Food is the original medicine. Food is the best medicine. From Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, acclaimed author of the national bestseller Meditation as Medicine, comes Food as Medicine -- a remarkable book that balances both of Dr. Khalsa's specialties by advising readers on how to achieve maximum health from simply eating responsibly and well. Grounded in medical science, Food as Medicine is a pragmatic and accessible reference for anyone seeking guidance on healthy eating or simple food remedies. Dr. Khalsa begins by setting readers on the right nutritional path -- regardless of their current eating habits -- and explains how to go organic, how to use natural organic juices and foods as medicine, and how special-food diets can help reverse the progress or diminish the symptoms of certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Hepatitis C. The book is filled with interesting food facts: Blueberries can increase brain longevity through their ability to help release dopamine in the brain. Kiwi fruit, because of its high levels of disease-fighting antioxidants and phytonutrients, is said to be an excellent source in battling cancer and heart disease. Pears, with their high content of certain minerals and fibers, can help prevent fibroid tumors. Drawing on Dr. Khalsa's own life experience as well as patient case histories, Food as Medicine outlines the seven principles of "The Khalsa Plan," details information on his other nutritional plans designed to target specific ailments, and lays out dozens of delicious, time-tested recipes that promote overall health and well-being.

Our understanding of psychophysiological states are now more broadly defined by the inclusion of the lateralized ultradian rhythms of the autonomic and central nervous systems (ANS and CNS) that play a key regulatory role in mind-body states. These neural rhythms are a unique step in the evolution of the nervous system that have mostly been ignored or missed in our understanding of physiology, mental activities, brain rhythms, and in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. The multivariate physiological experiments reviewed in this book provide a new “big picture for how the body’s major systems (ANS, CNS, neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, fuel-regulatory, gastrointestinal, immune) are regulated, integrated, and coordinated by the ANS via the hypothalamus during both waking and sleep. This discovery has implications for psychiatrists, psychologists, stress physiologists, cardiologists, sleep researchers, neuroscientists, neuroendocrinologists, cognitive scientists, and those interested in performance, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, autism, and addictive and impulse control disorders. This book includes the translational neuroscience aspect of this discovery, including implications for vagal nerve stimulation studies. This book is a study in Lateralized rhythms and Ultradian rhythms and their context in the ANS-CNS, a very new field Implications of these rhythms in Anxiety, Depression and Schizophrenia will be explored The book will present theories of possible causes for the assignment of causal mechanisms of these lateralizations The reader will understand the Nasal Cycle, the rhythmic; alternating side-to-side fluctuation in nasal airflow which is regulated by the ANS Unilateral Forced Breathing techniques will be discussed Vagal nerve stimulation and its effects will be discussed Yoga breathing techniques are analyzed and theorized scientifically
