Summary

Philosophers have always enjoyed asking awkward and provocative questions, such as: What is the nature of reality? What are human beings really like? What is special about the human mind and consciousness? Are we free to choose who we are and what we do? Can we prove that God exists? Can we be certain about anything at all? What is truth? Does language provide us with a true picture of the world? How should we behave towards each other? Do computers think? "Introducing Philosophy" is a comprehensive graphic guide to the thinking of all the significant philosophers of the Western world from Heraclitus to Derrida. It examines and explains their key arguments and ideas without being obscure or solemn. Lively and accessible, it is the perfect introduction to philosophers and philosophical ideas for anyone coming to the subject for the first time.

    Bradshaw's guide to London was published in a single volume as a handbook for visitors to the capital, and it includes beautiful engravings of London attractions, a historical overview of the city, and lots of other information relating to London theatres, Hackney carriages, omnibuses, London churches and even banks. There is also advice for tourists on coping with London smog, avoiding pickpockets, dealing with London's muddy streets and ferocious din, and many other topics - some just as useful today as they were in 1862!  
     
    The main body of the book focuses on a series of 'walking tours' radiating outwards from the centre of London, covering the North, East, South and West, The City of London and a tour of the Thames (from Greenwich to Windsor). All major attractions and districts are covered in detailed pages full of picturesque description. This reformatted edition preserves the historical value of this meticulously detailed and comprehensive book, which will appeal to Bradshaw's enthusiasts, local historians, aficionados of Victoriana, tourists and Londoners alike - there really is something for everyone. It will enchant anyone with an interest in the capital and its rich history.

    Enhance Your Everyday Life With Everyday Hypnosis
     
    "Hypnosis." The very essence of the word conjures up an image of some theatrical individual swinging a pocket watch in front of willing participants in an attempt to get them into a trancelike state, who lose all their free will and do whatever the hypnotist commands. Nothing could be further from the truth.
     
    Pop culture and pure work of entertainment have mystified hypnotism as nothing more than manipulative mind control when, in fact, it's much more compliant and cooperative than that. Separating "scientific fact" from "Hollywood fiction," this is real hypnosis, not the hocus pocus that you see in movies. This is "Practical Hypnosis."
     
    What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a tool that offers tremendous benefits to those who regularly practice it as self-hypnosis or willingly participate in it as hypnotherapy by a licensed hypnotist.
     
    For example, if you have a smoking or weight problem, then hypnosis can help in attacking and addressing the problem at the core of your subconscious to get you to overcome or stop these habits or problems altogether. Or maybe you've even thought about becoming a professional hypnotist yourself and using it as a form of treatment for patients who have these personal problems.
     
    Whatever it is, "Practical Hypnosis" will guide you from not knowing what hypnosis is or what it entails and clearing up its misconceptions to using it on yourself or others.
     
    * The two main different types of hypnosis and how to perform them: guided (hypnosis) and unguided (self-hypnosis).
     
    * The beginner's friendly components that come into play in order for hypnotism to work for behavior modification at the subconscious level.
     
    * The real truth about "conversational hypnosis" with intention of it being used to hypnotize others during normal conversation.
     
    * The common hypnotic treatments in "clinical hypnosis" for such as smoking, drinking, weight loss, sleep disorder, anxiety, and poor health.
     
    * The important steps required to make the hypnotic induction a total self-transformation and not only a temporary state.
     
    * And much more to explore!
     
    If you want to experience and learn about the real-world application of hypnosis to reprogramming old ineffective ways of doing things and living life, "Practical Hypnosis" will present that edge you seek.

    ‘A long-awaited book that answers many questions.’ 
    Jan de Vries 
     
    Antibiotics were developed in the 1940s. Then, they were hailed as a huge breakthrough in the treatment of bacterial infections. Today, they are the most commonly prescribed drugs worldwide. But massive over-prescription of antibiotics has created its own problems. The advent of antibiotic-resistant organisms – or ‘superbugs’ – has led more and more people to demand alternatives. 
     
    Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics is a revised and updated version of Dr John McKenna’s international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics. First published in 1996 and translated into 16 languages, Alternatives to Antibiotics explains in simple, jargon-free language the variety of alternatives to antibiotics in treating infections. Dr McKenna compares conventional medicine and alternative medical approaches, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of both. 
     
    In Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics, Dr McKenna looks at the various strains of infections which have become resistant since his international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics was published. Dr McKenna has expanded his sections on alternative, herbal, homeopathic and nutritional medicines, and shows directly that it is still possible to treat infections without antibiotics while still acknowledging the times that they may be necessary.Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics: Table of ContentsIntroduction

    A New Revolutionary Breakthrough In Dental Health
     
    Can you regrow teeth? That’s the question you’re probably wondering.
     
    The answer is...yes...but not in the way you may think. Let’s put it this way, your body can’t grow back a new tooth like it would for a piece of hair, nail, or skin layer that naturally replaces itself. However, a tooth can be regrown on a surface level which is known as “tooth remineralization.”
     
    What is tooth remineralization? It’s the regrowth process of restoring vital minerals and adding back layers to your teeth to make them stronger, bigger, and more solidly whole again.
     
    Your teeth will naturally weaken over time due to continuous use and even abuse (e.g., using your teeth as a tool to open things), overexposure to unhealthy diets high in sugar, poor oral hygiene from neglect of regular tooth brushing and mouth cleaning, etc.—resulting in all-too-common tooth decay, cavities, gum diseases, and other dental problems.
     
    The reality is that you only get one set of teeth in your life (excluding baby teeth). If you fail to take care of the teeth you have now, you’re going have to spend thousands of dollars and up for expensive dental works later down the road.
     
    On the other hand, if you’re one of the few who takes up the practice of manually performing tooth remineralization as soon as possible—you can restore your teeth back to its healthy natural state and keep them for life.
     
    Here’s what you will discover inside “Tooth Regrowth”:
     
    * The NASA-developed toothpaste used by astronauts to remineralize teeth.
     
    * The oldest medicinal system in the world to restore your pearly whites.
     
    * The natural herbal approach to rejuvenate the regrowth process in your mouth.
     
    * The most potent way to get your calcium intakes for building strong teeth.
     
    * The connective-tissue acid to fight periodontitis and reverse receding gums.
     
    ...and that’s simply scratching the surface of tooth remineralization.
     
    Don’t let your teeth deteriorate to the point where it’s too late to fix the problem that you could have prevented or fixed yourself. Pick up “Tooth Regrowth” now to remineralize your teeth and reclaim a healthy shiny smile that you can be proud of.
