• WELL-PRESERVED

    For anyone who's ever headed to their local farmers' market reciting the mantra "I will not overbuy" but has lumbered home with bags overflowing with delicious summer strawberries, zucchini blossoms and tomatoes, or autumn apples, pears and cauliflower, this book will be your saving grace.

    Well-Preserved is a collection of 30 small batch preserving recipes and 90 recipes in which to use the preserved goods. Preserving recipes like Marinated Baby Artichokes are followed by recipes for dishes like Marinated Artichoke and Ricotta Pie, and Sausages with Marinated Baby Artichokes; a Three-Citrus Marmalade recipe is followed by recipes for Chicken Wings Baked with Three-Citrus Marmalade, Shrimp with Three-Citrus Marmalade and Lime, and Crepes with Three-Citrus Marmalade, and so on.

    Author Eugenia Bone, a New Yorker whose Italian father was forever canning everything from olives to tuna, describes the art of preserving in an accessible way. Though she covers traditional water bath and pressure canning in detail, she also shares simpler methods that allow you to preserve foods using low-tech options like oil-preserving, curing and freezing. Bone clearly explains each technique so that you can rest assured your food is stable and safe.

    With Well-Preserved: Recipes and Techniques for Putting Up Small Batches of Seasonal Foods, you will never again have a night when you open your cupboard or refrigerator and lament that there's "nothing to eat!" Instead, you'll be whipping up the seasons' best meals all year long.

  • WHY CAN'T I GET BETTER?

    From one of the country's foremost doctors comes a groundbreaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic disease.

    You may not know that you have Lyme. It can mimic disease processes including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, psychiatric conditions such as depression and anxiety, and cause significant memory and concentration problems, mimicking early dementia. It is called the "Great Imitator," and inaccurate testing (combined with a fierce, ongoing debate that questions chronic infection) makes it difficult for sufferers to find effective care.

    When Dr. Richard Horowitz moved to the Hudson Valley more than two decades ago to start his own medical practice, he had no idea that he was jumping into a hotbed of Lyme disease. He would soon realize that many of the chronic disease diagnoses people were receiving were also the result of Lyme … and he would discover how once-treatable infections, in the absence of timely intervention, could cause dis¬abling conditions. In a field where the number of cases is growing exponentially around the world and answers remain elusive, Horowitz has treated more than 12,000 patients and made extraordinary progress. His plan represents a crucial paradigm shift, without which the suffering will continue.

    In this book, Horowitz:

    • Breaks new ground with a 16-Point Differential Diagnostic Map, the basis for his revolutionary Lyme treatment plan, and an overarching approach to treating all chronic illness.
    • Introduces MSIDS, or Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome, a new lens on chronic illness that may prove to be an important missing link.
    • Covers in detail Lyme's leading symptoms and co-infections, including immune dysfunction, sleep disorders, chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders. He pro¬vides a unique functional and integrative health care model, based on the most up-to-date scientific research, for physicians and health care providers to effectively treat Lyme and other chronic illnesses.

    Cutting through the frustration, misinformation and endless questions, Horowitz's enlightening story of medical discovery, science and politics is an all-in-one source for patients of chronic illness to identify their own symptoms and work with their doctors for the best possible treatment outcome.

Horses have evolved to understand and respond to the flow of vital energy - chi - around them, using it to communicate with members of their herd, express dominance, and sense danger from nearby predators. Being quietly present and receptive to your horse’s chi opens the potential of your emotional, intuitive right brain, awakening your deep sensitivity, calm leadership, intuition, and mindfulness.
