Empty Plate

By Tammera J Karr, PhD and Kathleen Bell, RN

At no other time has it been more important to examine the way we care for ourselves and others. Our physical, mental, and spiritual health is being tested at a high level. At times, life feels beyond full and without goodness. By pausing long enough to explore aspects of our lives that we often take for granted, we can begin to see patterns steeped in tradition that support health at a cellular level.

Tammera Karr and Kathleen Bell have taken that pause to show us how the foods we eat, the thoughts we think, and the sounds and colors that surround us affect our well-being. Based on clinical experience, research, personal reflection, and a passion for advancing healthcare perspectives, this book is a guide for nourishing mind, body, and spirit by integrating today’s rapidly changing landscape with nature’s wisdom.

In our immense capacity to care for others, this book will challenge you to examine your plate, scrape it clean if needed, and begin to fill it with the understanding that the mind and body are inseparable. To nourish one means to nourish the other, allowing us to heal.

Perfect for those in health care, education, and proactively minded. Hundreds of current scientific references, fascinating historical tidbits, thought-provoking quotes.

General Description:

Histamine is more than the “anti” part of an allergy medication. It is a powerful piece of our health puzzle that has been overlooked for too long.

Simply put, excess histamine leads to inflammation. Excess inflammation leads to allergies, eczema, asthma, rashes, migraines, brain fog, car sickness, insomnia, gas, indigestion, acid reflux, and a whole host of other health conditions.

Open your eyes to histamine and what it is doing to your body. This book will guide you through quick and personalized healing, 100% naturally. You’ll learn what histamine is, what causes it, how it works, and what it looks like. Then you can get to work on your personalized histamine recovery plan.

Beverley Rider, PhD, NC knows histamine because she has suffered from it (and resolved it for) herself. In her years of research, she discovered that balancing histamine excess is not as easy as incorporating a healthy diet and exercise. But it can be simple if you ask yourself the right questions and make the correct changes according to those answers. If you’re suffering from inflammation and all the conditions that go with it, you owe it to your health to read this book.

Testimonial:

Endorsement for Histamine Excess

This book is a gem that shines brightly with clear science and solutions! It is potentially a life changing resource to share with families, physicians and people suffering from an array of inflammatory conditions that have not responded to symptomatic conventional or natural remedies. As the author states so well, histamine is not villain, but rather is a part of the body’s intricate system of cell signaling and defense. It activates when the cells perceive a foreign substance or stimuli. The inability to identify histamine triggers and clear histamine excess is sets in motion many of the symptoms people experience on a daily basis, from fatigue to depression to migraines. Histamine Excess provides practical ways to effectively the eliminate the ‘histamine hangover’ and enable a histamine sensitive person return to a state of comfort, balance and well-being.

Setting them Free

by Roger Simpson

This book is about Respect for education and therefore respect for the only reason we have classrooms, the students.

My purpose is for you read and think about this series of vignettes because they have a direct but subtle relationship to why we are destroying the last of our planetary resources out of greed and ignorance and  by continuing to send our youth off to die in battle, giving these actions the delusional names, “profit and patriotism.”

The vignettes help expose these illusions and others, because they reveal in true story form how respecting our young and hearing their voices opens the way for them to become thoughtful  student-citizens ready to take on the world of our reality, not our long standing and destructive illusions.

In the tradition of Plato, education means to “lead out,” to open young thoughtful minds from so much of the ignorance we see in history and thus, to “set them free.”
