New Fibromyalgia Remedy: Stop Your Pain Now with an Anti-Viral Regimen
Author: Daniel C Dantini
Debilitating pain and tenderness in muscles, ligaments, and tendons are the typical symptoms of fibromyalgia, and this guide by a medical researcher of the disease dismisses traditional treatment—heat, exercise, and rest—in favor of antiviral medications that often provide immediate relief and eventual complete recovery. Offering new hope for advances in treatment, the discussion covers the difficulty of diagnosing fibromyalgia, the overlaps with chronic fatigue syndrome, the unrelatedness of arthritis, and the possibility that food allergies may trigger attacks. Patient success stories along the way encourage readers while data samples, references, and appendices provide clinical details.

The Tapping Cure: A Revolutionary System for Rapid Relief from Phobias, Anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and More
Author: Roberta Temes
The Tapping Cure is an astoundingly easy and somewhat mystifying process that offers great results in the treatment of a variety of psychological problems. It takes only a few minutes, requires no medication and no talk therapy, and can completely erase a full range of negative emotions—from phobia, to trauma, to performance anxiety—in just a single session. In The Tapping Cure Dr. Temes, a seasoned psychotherapist, teaches readers how to tap themselves to eradicate their own symptoms. It is the first book of its kind to give precise instructions on where the tapping should occur—e.g., on the collarbone, under the eye, on the pinky—without resorting to mystical explanations, unscientific paradigms, and complicated pseudo-psychoanalytic rationalizations. The Tapping Cure is sure to help a great many people—psychological sufferers, the worried-well, and therapists with increasing numbers of patients requesting the treatment, which is fast becoming known in mainstream circles just like other once fringe therapies before it.
Psychotherapist and hypnotist Temes (The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hypnosis) teaches readers how to eliminate the symptoms of ailments ranging from addiction to post-traumatic stress via "tapping." She offers an introduction to this self-administered technique, traces its history, pinpoints 14 tapping spots (e.g., collarbone, temples), and discusses how corresponding phraseology can be integrated. Stories of patients she claims have experienced its benefits are intermingled throughout. Temes admits that tapping has not been rigorously tested in accepted empirical studies and that there are no solid research data to account for why it seems to work; she also wisely states that it is not a replacement for medical treatment. Instead, she says, tapping may best be used to supplement standard medical protocols when guided by professionals further trained in the technique. Although Temes's book provides a broader frame of reference to and includes more of the medical skepticism surrounding this technique than Fred Gallo and Harry Vincenzi's Energy Tapping, this book is cautiously recommended for only a sound, established psychiatry and general medicine collection in larger public libraries.-Dale Farris, Groves, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
