End of Life Decisions
by Stan Craig

ForeTalk is made up of nine easy-to-read and uncomplicated chapters. Each chapter ends with a guide for the reader to complete. There are seven critical conversations that we all must have with our loved ones�the messages apply to newlyweds, new parents, boomers, single people, veterans, anyone with a pet, the sick, healthy and the elderly. Each of these is presented with ideas to make every conversation one of ease and grace. While ForeTalk is written from a distinctly Christian viewpoint, the guide fits everyone. No one knows when he or she is living in life's final season. The themes are complete with personal stories, humor, quotations, and practical suggestions to help each reader get this done. The seven critical conversations are designed to change what is often seen as a difficult task to a series of easy and meaningful conversations with those you care about most. From how to begin the conversations to how to make each day count, the chapters and guides make what was once feared a pleasant and applicable experience. ForeTalk is a much-needed gift for those you love most (and for those who love you). After all, 'fore talk' is much better than hindsight.

ForeTalk is available at www.Amazon.com, as well as other online booksellers. To learn more visit ForeTalkSeminar.com.

Health Inspired Recipes to Revitalize Your Life for Vegetarians or Meat Lovers!

by Suzanne Landry

From the first tender pea shoots in spring, to the last brilliant orange pumpkins in autumn, vegetables are the cook's harbinger of the changing seasons. Vegetables are often thought of as sides that complement a main dish of meat, fish or poultry. While this is a great way to showcase the garden's gems, one chef is celebrating vegetables in all their starring roles � breakfast, salads, sides and entrees.

Get lost in Crazy Woman Creek
Virginia Hull Welch has an imagination as big as the Wyoming sky. Inspired by a road sign in that state, she concocted a back-story to explain the intriguing name. Crazy Woman Creek (CreateSpace) is an inspirational western romance set in Wyoming Territory, 1880.

James Rose rode into the unforgiving darkness of the Wyoming prairie one stormy night and did not return. When the rancher's horse is found tied to a tree on the banks of the icy North-East Creek three days later, his wife Lenora insists her beloved is too capable a horseman to slip and fall into a rushing creek. But everyone in the little town of Buffalo believes he drowned.

Not quite everyone. To Deputy Luke Davies, the beautiful widow's account of the events that night provokes more questions than answers. Why is she so sure her husband did not perish in the wilderness? Why is she vague about the events that happened just before he rode off? What is she hiding? And who has been sneaking onto her property at night to harass her, and why? Crazy Woman Creek

Caregiver shares experiences
In 1900, there were no video games, no computers, no newfangled toys. Books were even difficult to come by. How was a little girl to grow up?

Eliza Ann Beaty, a spirited girl known as Lida, spent her youth on the prairie, helping her family run the farm outside their sod house. It was in this strenuous environment that Lida cultivated a strong character that would carry her through both world wars and an eventful life.

It is a life she chronicles in The Crazy Quilt of Life, her own personal diary, which is now being published years after her death by her granddaughter, Margaret Ann Parker. In Lida's own words, The Crazy Quilt of Life offers readers an intimate glimpse into what life was like before modern comforts.

Parker chose to publish the diary because she knew that through it the world would come to know and love the woman she has spent her life admiring.

When the dust settled after two horrifically intense years of managing her mother's care, caregivers, and finances, Faye Levow was determined to create a comprehensive resource so that no one would ever again be lost in the whirlwind of dealing with unprepared, aging parents.

Think yourself thin
Dr. Kathy Gruver, author of the new book Body/Mind Therapies for the Bodyworker says, "We have the innate ability to change our bodies, simply by changing our language."

Most people think of health as something having to do with our physical bodies, they want a low BMI, they eat organic, do their yoga. But very few people think of the ramifications of their thoughts and how strongly they affect the body. And how paying attention to that connection can lead to total healing.

"It's estimated that we have 60,000 thoughts a day and that 50,000 of those are negative, guess how you feel that makes you feel? Significant progress can be made even if we just change a portion of those thoughts."

Is healthcare in crisis?
There's a crisis in primary health care. In some cities, almost 90 percent of primary care physicians are not accepting new patients because their practices are full. And it's only going to get worse, warns noted physician and emeritus professor of medicine Dr. Paul Griner (www.DrPaulGriner.com), author of "The Power of Patient Stories: Learning Moments in Medicine."

"In 2014, 32 million people currently without health insurance will become insured and there will be nowhere near enough primary-care physicians to meet their needs," Griner says. "Less than 20 percent of new physicians are entering primary care, which includes the specialties of family medicine, general internal medicine and general pediatrics."

Doctor with a heart...Memoir of a Heart Surgeon
Along with providing incredible insight into what it's like being a heart surgeon, The Spirit of the Heart delves into:
  • Effects of eating disorders on the heart
  • Dealing with the grief of losing a loved one
  • Reflections on life, death, and happiness
  • How losing a patient effects a doctor
  • The journey of life as a perpetual caretaker
"As a surgeon, when you take on the responsibility of humanity's wellbeing and witness their moments of death, you learn very quickly the complexities of what life means to you and to others," adds Dr. Nu�o. "The ultimate payoff in a surgeon's career is to save a patient's life. It is being able to give a patient back to their family that makes it all worthwhile."

For anyone who is, was, or ever will be faced with a medical emergency, The Spirit of the Heart provides comfort and hope that you are not alone in your struggle. Website: http://www.NunoMD.co

A caregiver's survival guide
Daughter's new book offers personal look at caring for elderly parents.

The sixth of seven children, Amy Madge took on a tremendous challenge the day she stepped in to care for her aging parents.

While also working as a medical secretary, Amy Madge faced her newest job with a brave face as a commitment to show her parents the compassion, gratitude and at-home care they deserved.

Her newly released memoir, Memories of My Parents is a collection of experiences, reactions and incidents that carries the reader through the life of Madge's parents, her childhood and the eventual duties she took on caring for her parents until their passing. A powerful admission of her own feelings and tribute to her parents, Madge shares her family's stories through the joyful, saddening, and difficult times.

Supporting her parents as they dealt with the passing of their oldest son, the burden was then shifted again to Madge as her father crumbled from the loss of her mother, his wife. Binding together in a somber attempt to move on, Madge found a new side to her father as he dealt with life without his wife and his newly diagnosed bladder cancer. Madge details the intense feelings of helplessness, waves of grief and loneliness after enduring the loss of three extremely close family members.

"It was through the writing of their story, our family's story, that I began to see how I endured the most trying of times," says Madge. "By remembering their love for each other and us, their children, I gained the strength to face the daily challenges and acceptance of loss."

Simple Skincare, Beautiful Skin
Just like your wardrobe, how you take care of your skin needs to adapt to the change in season. Dr. Abdullah notes that changes in air temperature and humidity lead to dull, dry skin, which, in turn, creates inflammation that can lead to a host of additional problems (breakouts, for example), yet most people do not give their skin the special attention it needs during the colder months. Dr. Abdullah would like to help readers achieve a healthy glow throughout the winter with the four steps to "winterizing" your skincare regimen below.

Dr. Ahmed Abdullah is an internationally celebrated plastic/cosmetic surgeon and a recognized expert on the restorative and medicinal effects of aloe vera.

EndoMune Probiotic was developed in 2007 and since it became commercially available, physicians and pharmacists are recommending EndoMune to patients of all ages and health conditions.

Studies show that bacterial combinations like those in EndoMune Probiotic are more effective in protecting you from harmful bacteria. Among EndoMune's many benefits, it enhances the intestinal immune system - a major defense barrier against harmful viruses, bacteria, yeast and toxins. Regular use of probiotics such as EndoMune can also aid in maintaining a healthy balance of the intestinal flora which may ease symptoms of bloating, gas, cramp, and irregular stools as experienced in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Ongoing research in the basic sciences and in clinical studies continues to confirm the many potential benefits of a daily regimen of probiotics. Some of those benefits include:
  • Lessening the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD)
  • Reducing the incidence of gas, bloating and abdominal distension
  • Protection against of traveler's diarrhea
  • Assistance with preventing bacterial infections such as clostridium dificile (C Diff)
  • Decreasing cholesterol absorption
  • Improving overall immunity (70% of immune system located in GI tract)
  • Increasing absorption and efficacy of essential vitamins and minerals
  • Decreasing potential carcinogens which lead to colon cancer
  • Lessening the intestinal inflammation in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease which includes both Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's Disease
  • Preventing harmful bacteria from colonizing the intestines and causing damage
  • Lessening the risk of diarrhea and diaper rash in infants and toddlers
  • Lessening the harmful effects of OTC heartburn drugs
  • Lessening the incidence of infantile allergies
