Revealing how the thyroid is the victim of many factors that conspire to create ill health--and how many cases of thyroid disease go undiagnosed--Teitelbaum focuses not only on treating thyroid problems and symptoms but also on diagnosing them at their earliest, most reversible stages. She outlines the basic principles of Ayurveda, including pulse diagnosis, a key tool for early detection, and explains the successful treatment protocols she has developed over more than 30 years of Ayurvedic practice. She details the underlying reasons for thyroid malfunction, such as inflammation, malnutrition, and toxins, and how the thyroid is connected with the health of the rest of body, including the liver and gall bladder. She explores the Ayurvedic treatment of thyroid-related conditions, such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism, offering guidance on the targeted use of herbs, specific dietary recommendations, proper detoxification, and Ayurvedic recipes. She also includes treatments and remedies for common symptoms of thyroid disease, including insomnia, depression, fatigue, and osteoporosis, as well as for luxurious hair growth and weight loss. Based on the treatment of thousands of patients, this book also shares success stories of thyroid healing and the scientific studies that support the author’s Ayurvedic thyroid protocols. Offering an easy-to-follow yet comprehensive guide, Teitelbaum shows that optimum thyroid health as well as overall health are within everyone’s reach.

Finding plant-based recipes? Easy. Dealing with the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan in a non-vegan world? That's the hard part. The Joyful Vegan is here to help. Many people choose veganism as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and/or their health. But despite their positive intentions and the personal benefits they experience, they're often met with resistance from friends, family members, and society at large. These external factors can make veganism socially difficult—and emotionally exhausting—to sustain. This leads to an unfortunate reality: the majority of vegans (and vegetarians) revert back to consuming meat, dairy, or eggs—breaching their own values and sabotaging their own goals in the process. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, known as "The Joyful Vegan," has guided countless individuals through the process of becoming vegan. Now, in her seventh book, The Joyful Vegan, she shares her insights into why some people stay vegan and others stop. It's not because there's nothing to eat. It's not because there isn't enough protein in plants. And it's not because people lack willpower or moral fortitude. Rather, people stay vegan or not depending on how well they navigate the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan: constantly being asked to defend your eating choices, living with the awareness of animal suffering, feeling the pressure (often self-inflicted) to be perfect, and experiencing guilt, remorse, and anger. In these pages, Colleen shares her wisdom for managing these challenges and arms readers—both vegan and plant-based—with solutions and strategies for "coming out vegan" to family, friends, and colleagues; cultivating healthy relationships (with vegans and non-vegans); communicating effectively; sharing enthusiasm without proselytizing; finding like-minded community; and experiencing peace of mind as a vegan in a non-vegan world. By implementing the tools provided in this book, readers will find they can live ethically, eat healthfully, engage socially—and remain a joyful vegan.
It's springtime and Mrs. Webster's fourth grade class is excited to find feathery new residents in their school courtyard after Memorial Day break. But their plans to learn more about the ducks, and even go outside to sketch them in their sketch- pads, are quickly interrupted by an unforeseen accident. So what do you do when a bunch of baby ducklings fall down a drain? That's exactly what some of the children of Suregood Elementary are wondering. Daniel and his friends face a dilemma. Should they help (if so, how?), or should they let nature take its own course . . . ? This book was written in honor of the intrinsic fascination with animals that children possess. It is natural for young children to want to help them, keep them, name them, pet and hold them, and ultimately love them. This book is written with the desire to teach respect for both wildlife and domestic animals; with the understanding that we share this world with them, that we all have a purpose and a place here.
From the New York Times bestselling author hailed for her “inimitable, take-no-prisoners style” (Kirkus Reviews), Cold Betrayal forces Ali Reynolds to confront the face of evil, and the women who are being hunted. Revenge isn’t the only dish served cold... Ali’s longtime friend and Taser-carrying nun, Sister Anselm, rushes to the bedside of a young pregnant woman hospitalized for severe injuries after she was hit by a car on a deserted Arizona highway. The girl had been running away from The Family, a polygamous cult with no patience for those who try to leave its ranks. Something about her strikes a chord in Sister Anselm, reminding her of a case she worked years before when another young girl wasn’t so lucky. Meanwhile, married life agrees with Ali. But any hopes that she and her husband, B. Simpson, will finally slow down and relax now that they’ve tied the knot are dashed when Ali’s new daughter-in-law approaches her, desperate for help. The girl’s grandmother, Betsy, is in danger: she’s been receiving anonymous threats, and someone even broke into her home and turned on the gas burners in the middle of the night. But the local police think the elderly woman’s just not as sharp as she used to be. While Ali struggles to find a way to protect Betsy before it’s too late, Sister Anselm needs her help as well, and the two race the clock to uncover the secrets that The Family has hidden for so long—before someone comes back to bury them forever.
Soon The Judgment Day of the Creator will happen. Billions of corpse-eaters, evil spirits from hell who have possessed human bodies and they are killing animals and eating corpse of animals will be executed and sent back home, to Hell for punishment and education. This is an extremely painful education. Be Warned. This Judgment Day of the Creator was mentioned by me, Moses 3300 years ago and by Jesus 2000 years ago and by Mohammad 1400 years ago. Holy Vegan Earth, the last book of the Creator that updates all previous books, Quran, Bible and Torah was revealed to me, Moses and I wrote it from 2012 to 2018. Book contains guidelines. It contains Theological, Philosophical and Scientific content related to the subjects of some educational stories. It contains a long story that started in 7000 BC and continued to my next appearance on the Earth as Moses in 1300 BC and now, again as Moses to warn people about the soon happening Judgment Day. Book contains a True Story. Fiction, it is not. Two conditions should apply then you will survive. (1) Belief in the Creator (2) Be a Vegan, that means you learned a simple lesson from Eleven Commandments that I brought for you from the Creator. Yes. 11 Commandments, not 10. The 11th Commandment is You must be Vegan. You should not kill any innocent human animal or other animals. Those who violate the law will be executed humiliatingly and burned in hell for eternity. Book contains many paintings that I created to accompany the Theological content to make it easier to digest and many Plans for Vegan Activists. Ve establish the Vegan Earth by Genocide. This is my wish. When the Creator will do it is out of my jurisdiction. However, you have no excuse any more. You are warned clearly. You like it or not, do not matter. This is plan of the Creator typed by Moses Messenger of the Creator in 2012-2018 from direct communication with the Creator, the Unified Field, the Unity, Creator of Universes. If you are atheist, I have included seven proofs of the existence of the Creator in this book. Some are complex Mathematical proofs and some are simple. Depends on level of your intelligence you can find a proof that you can understand. Read, learn, understand and surrender to words of the Creator and Prophet of the Creator, Moses. Go Vegan, you will live. Stay corpse-eater, you will be eradicated like bacteria and will be burned in hell. Use your brain. You will find logic and reasoning in this book. Convert to Vegan. Convert to a believer in the Creator. If you do not use your brain, in hell you will learn by pain. Evidence and Proof is the only important matter. The Unified Field is God. The Unified Field is the Creator of Universe. In this book of God, the Sixth Book of Moses, I included the evidence and proof that I am communicating with the Unified Field. It is a two-direction communication. I proved I am Moses. Belief without reasoning and proof worth zero. Vegans who are believers in the Creator will inherit the Earth. Rest of humans will be wood for fire of hell. 01 - 110 - Ve start with 110. There is hope. 02 - 112 - Only if the 112, God helps.

Ranging widely across contemporary American society and culture, Wright unpacks the loaded category of vegan identity. She examines the mainstream discourse surrounding and connecting animal rights to veganism. Her focus is on the construction and depiction of the vegan body (both male and female) as a contested site manifest in contemporary works of literature, popular cultural representations, advertising, and new media. At the same time, Wright looks at critical animal studies, human-animal studies, posthumanism, and ecofeminism as theoretical frameworks that inform vegan studies.
We’ve been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray--not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance. The truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil--the basis of life itself. Keith argues that if we are to save this planet, our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them. Part memoir, part nutritional primer, and part political manifesto, The Vegetarian Myth will challenge everything you thought you knew about food politics.
The 1947 UN resolution to partition Palestine irrevocably changed the political landscape of the Middle East, giving rise to six full-fledged wars between Arabs and Jews, countless armed clashes, blockades, and terrorism, as well as a profound shattering of Palestinian Arab society. Its origins, and that of the wider Arab-Israeli conflict, are deeplyrooted in Jewish-Arab confrontation and appropriation in Palestine. But the isolated occasions of violence during the British Mandate era (1920–48) suggest that the majority of Palestinian Arabs yearned to live and thrive under peaceful coexistence with the evolving Jewish national enterprise. So what was the real cause of the breakdown in relations between the two communities?In this brave and groundbreaking book, Efraim Karshtells the story from both the Arab and Jewish perspectives. Heargues that from the early 1920s onward, a corrupt and extremist leadership worked toward eliminating the Jewish national revival and protecting its own interests. Karsh has mined many of the Western, Soviet, UN, and Israeli documents declassified over the past decade, as well as unfamiliar Arab sources, to reveal what happened behind the scenes on both Palestinian and Jewish sides. It is an arresting story of delicate political and diplomatic maneuvering by leading figures—Ben Gurion, Hajj Amin Husseini, Abdel Rahman Azzam, King Abdullah, Bevin, and Truman —over the years leading up to partition, through the slide to war and its enduring consequences. Palestine Betrayed is vital reading for understanding the origin of disputes that remain crucial today.

The secret history of MI6 - from the Cold War to the present day. The British Secret Service has been cloaked in secrecy and shrouded in myth since it was created a hundred years ago. Our understanding of what it is to be a spy has been largely defined by the fictional worlds of James Bond and John le Carre. THE ART OF BETRAYAL provides a unique and unprecedented insight into this secret world and the reality that lies behind the fiction. It tells the story of how the secret service has changed since the end of World War II and by focusing on the people and the relationships that lie at the heart of espionage, revealing the danger, the drama, the intrigue, the moral ambiguities and the occasional comedy that comes with working for British intelligence. From the defining period of the early Cold War through to the modern day, MI6 has undergone a dramatic transformation from a gung-ho, amateurish organisation to its modern, no less controversial, incarnation. Gordon Corera reveals the triumphs and disasters along the way. The grand dramas of the Cold War and after - the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 11 September 2001 attacks and the Iraq war - are the backdrop for the human stories of the individual spies whose stories form the centrepiece of the narrative. But some of the individuals featured here, in turn, helped shape the course of those events. Corera draws on the first-hand accounts of those who have spied, lied and in some cases nearly died in service of the state. They range from the spymasters to the agents they ran to their sworn enemies. Many of these accounts are based on exclusive interviews and access. From Afghanistan to the Congo, from Moscow to the back streets of London, these are the voices of those who have worked on the front line of Britain's secret wars. And the truth is often more remarkable than the fiction.
