A revolutionary book by a doctor who dares to differ Author: Dr Riina Raudsik, MD

Pages 256 ISBN 9789949571581 135x200mm Paperback Pilgrim, 2016

“Each human being is unique, and all dietary choices should reflect that. There is no superdiet that fits all; there are no right or wrong foods – only suitable or unsuitable ones. Chinese food therapy considers every person’s body type, their individuality and illnesses. This helps people choose food that strengthens their body, helps prevent health problems and enables healing.” - Rene Bürkland

A handbook on the importance of the right diet, on food therapy and hidden food intolerances Author: Adik Levin, MD

This book by a renowned doctor and diet specialist is much more than a handbook full of good advice. Dr Levin does not promote just another diet but insists on everyone’s individuality and the need to concentrate on these unique nuances. This means the same food and advice does not suit everyone.

Feed Your Health (Toida oma tervist)

Prevention of illnesses and recovery with the help of proper food and natural medicine Author: Liis Orav

Food is just one piece in the grand puzzle of health and happiness but also one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your body a restart. If an illness was a war, our immune system would be the army and food would serve as guns and ammunition. An imprisoned army, rusty guns and non-existent ammunition would not win anyone a war. Both stem cell research and epigenetics have proved that health depends on our choices. Popular theory of genetic determinism that has prevailed for decades is fading into oblivion. However, drug-driven medicine has fostered a belief that health problems can be overcome by popping pills, not making lifestyle changes. As they say: “the healthy have a thousand dreams, the sick just one.� Trust your own body and respect its messages. Feed your health! Liis Orav learnt the healing properties of food through painful personal experiences. She has graduated Annely Soots Health School and has furthered her studies in the subject of natural healing, nutrigenomics, and biomedicine in various countries. She firmly believes that natural food; well-informed choices, good energy and positive attitude can move mountains.

The Art of Being a Woman (Naiseks olemise kunst)

The magic of feminine archetyps Author: Katrin Saali Saul

Every woman is born with a palette of healthy archetypes – The Girl, The Lover, The Chatelaine, and the Queen. Balance in this ancient code of womanhood brings along a balanced and wholesome life. Unfortunately, women often fall from the healthy archetypes to their shadow forms possessing either too much or too little of that particular energy. Archetypes and the shadow archetypes are like angels and demons of the female psyche.

Pages 320 ISBN 9789949529551 160x235mm Hardcover Pilgrim, 2015

„I wrote „The Art of Being a Woman” in hope that by acknowledging the shadows and expressing the healthy archetypes women can look at themselves from a new perspective and change their lives for better. Couldn’t some just be wise Queens, others happy Girls, homely Chatelaines or sensual Lovers? The answer is simple – the better a woman integrates her archetypes, the better she masters different situations in her life.” - Katrin Saali Saul

Let’s Feel the Feelings (Tunneme tundeid)

A meditation on feelings Author: Pille Teearu
