Healthy babies don't just happen. The lifestyle of the prospective parents is a crucial factor in promoting fertility and ensuring a successful pregnancy. But the average North American diet is saturated with processed foods, and environmental toxins are rampant. We must take responsibility for what we put into and onto our bodies to create optimum conditions for the childbearing year.

Drawing on the author's own personal triumph over infertility, Conceiving Healthy Babies is a unique herbal guide geared to helping couples achieve balance in preconception, pregnancy, lactation and beyond. Its individualized approach to fertility explains the importance of:

  • Understanding, accepting and celebrating our own bodies
  • Basing our diets on organic, nutrient-dense foods that have been traditionally prepared
  • Using whole plants in their original form for their medicinal benefits

Packed with detailed information on hundreds of different herbs, with a focus on their roles in building healthy babies, this comprehensive manual is a road map to well-being. The reference guide is rounded out by complete information on herbal use before, during and post-pregnancy, and special attention is paid to supporting nursing and lactation. Whether you have experienced challenges in conceiving or just want to ensure that your pregnancy is as natural and uncomplicated as possible, Conceiving Healthy Babies is an indispensable guide.

It started with a harmless quest for perfect wash-and-go hair. Every girl wants it, and Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt finally found it in a fancy salon treatment. They were thrilled … until they discovered that the magic ingredient was formaldehyde.

Shocked, O'Connor and Spunt left no bottle unturned. If it went on their body (and thus, was absorbed into their skin and bloodstream), they researched it. As it turns out, many of those unpronounceable ingredients in your self-tanner and leave-in conditioner are not regulated and the “natural” on your face wash doesn't mean what you think it does.

Now, with the help of top scientists, dermatologists, and makeup artists, the authors share their compelling findings and the easy way to detoxify your beauty regimen. No More Dirty Looks also reveals the safest, most effective products on the market and time-tested home recipes. Finally, you don't need to sacrifice health for beauty … because coming clean is the best look yet.

We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work and play … and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are.

Here, the teacher, scientist and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine offers a book that you can use in three unique ways: as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding “lesson-a-day” primer on mindfulness practice.

Beginning and advanced meditators alike will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices that Jon Kabat-Zinn has found most useful with his students, including:

  • Why heartfulness is synonymous with true mindfulness
  • The value of coming back to our bodies and to our senses over and over again
  • How our thoughts “self-liberate” when touched by awareness
  • Moving beyond our “story” into direct experience
  • Stabilizing our attention and presence amid daily activities
  • The three poisons that cause suffering … and their antidotes
  • How mindfulness heals, even after the fact
  • Reclaiming our wholeness

The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: Return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. But if you’ve tried it, you know that here is where all the questions and challenges begin. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable and loving connection with ourselves and the world.

The book includes a complete CD with five guided mindfulness meditations by Kabat-Zinn, selected from the audio program that inspired this book.
