Summary

"An old Russian proverb claims that labor will go more smoothly if both parents-to-be confess the names of all their previous lovers. So all that screaming and yelling you hear in the delivery suite? It might not be pain related.”When it comes to childbirth and child rearing, what can other cultures teach us about motherhood? And what can we learn from the way our great grandmothers did things? Many young women are looking to folk wisdom and folk tradition for guidance (just think of the rise in midwives, doulas, belly-binding, postpartum herb baths, and placenta smoothies). This book is full of little gems—customs, folklore, and cultural practices from around the world as well as the voices of contemporary mothers. This beautifully illustrated book is a delightful read with a good dose of humor and fun. It's a refreshingly different gift for new mothers.

Common symptoms of a typical allergic reaction include breathing congestion, inflammation, scratchy or watery eye, sneezing, coughing, itching, puffy face, flushing of the cheeks, vomiting, stomachache, and intestinal irritation etc. More severe reactions can be fatal if not treated in time. The underlying causes of development of allergy and sensitivity, in varying degrees, are Diet and Nutritionary and lifestyle factors, imbalanced immune function, and toxic overload. There are many cures for allergies that do not involve much use of pharmaceutical drugs. This book shows you how you can treat allergies naturally. Besides, it explains how you can make lifestyle changes that will keep you in the pink of health. #v&spublishers

    It was a shameful incident. I remember years ago when I used to suck in bed. It affected my self-confidence until I couldn’t take it anymore. When you take action, things change for good.

    Some people believe they are absolutely typical of their sun sign, while others see little of themselves in the descriptions given in most astrology books.Written for beginners as well as astrology students, this informative volume explains why one sun sign can include many different personalities. There are many possible astrological reasons for the diversification within each sign, but this book demonstrates two main factors that are easy for a complete beginner in astrology to understand and to use: decans and dwads. The system presented here is simple and effective and does not require learning the complexities of chart interpretation.Each sign of the zodiac can be divided into three sections called decans, and each decan can be divided into four dwads. These divisions can lead to many variations in personalities of people born under a specific sign, including those between twins. Determine your decan and dwad on the easy-to-use tables provided, then see what their interpretations say about your life. Find out how to progress your sun sign to check out trends and events for any year of your life. After you've evaluated yourself, you can enjoy doing the same for your family and friends.Although perfect for beginners, the simplicity of this approach makes it a handy tool for working astrologers and includes information on gender, elements, and qualities and how they relate to the sun sign.

    Out of Your Hands provides a complete guide to deciphering all aspects of the hand: its shape, palmar lines, and fingerprints. Beleta not only provides practical interpretations such as personality traits and relationship prospects but also discusses the markings on the hand that provide mystic insights.When you look at the lines on someone's hand, you are looking at that person's journey of life and the map of their character and fate. Although palmistry is considered a science and each line on the palm represents a certain meaning, it is also known to be another channel for psychics to gain information, because touching or feeling the hand brings a vibration to the clairvoyant and thus becomes a form of psychometry.By understanding the markings on the hands, you will gain insight into personality traits, as well an understanding of a possible destiny. The insights gained though palmistry can improve your life and your chances of future happiness.
