NATIVE AMERICAN / HEALTH Native American healers expect miracles and prepare in all ways possible for them to occur. In modern medicine, miraculous recoveries are discarded from studies as anomalous cases that will taint the otherwise orderly results. Yet this small group of "miracle" patients has everything to teach us about healing and survival. Coyote Healing distills the common elements in miracle cures to help people start their own healing journey. Looking at a hundred cases of individuals who experienced miracle cures and examining the energies, attributes, and teachings implicit within the Four Directions and how they relate to body-mind healing, Dr. Mehl-Madrona reveals that survivors found purpose and meaning in their life-threatening illness; peaceful acceptance was key to their healing. Coyote Healing also tells of another kind of miracle--finding faith, hope, and serenity even when a cure seems impossible. LEWIS MEHL-MADRONA, M.D., is a board-certified family physician, psychiatrist, and geriatrician. He holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. He worked for over twenty-five years in emergency medicine in both rural and academic settings and is currently the Coordinator of Integrative Psychiatry and Systems Medicine for the University of Arizona's Program in Integrative Medicine. He is the author of the bestselling Coyote Medicine.

Hailed by Dr. Andrew Weil as a book “that must be brought to all who seek true health,” Coyote Medicine is an engaging and essential testament to the power of alternative healing and recovery methods that lie beyond the confines of Western medicine. Inspired by his Cherokee grandmother's healing ceremonies, Lewis Mehl-Madrona enlightens readers to "alternative" paths to recovery and health. Coyote Medicine isn't about eschewing Western medicine when it's effective, but about finding other answers when medicine fails: for chronic sufferers, patients not responding to medication, or "terminal" cases that doctors have given up on. In the story of one doctor's remarkable initiation into alternative ways to spiritual and physical health, Coyote Medicine provides the key to untapped healing methods available today.

To know heart-wrenching loss means you've known heart-blossoming love. Remy and Baux, two Australian shepherd puppies, find themselves abandoned in a cemetery. Because they're not full-blooded, the human owners have tossed them aside like yesterday's trash. They're not only separated too early from their mother, but they also lose their litter mates. They know they're scared and hungry, but what they don't know is that a winter's storm like none other heads their way. They're all alone. Or are they? One day, after they've watched a funeral during which they see emotion like they've never seen before, a coyote steps into their midst. He seems to be knowledgeable, and certainly doesn't mind telling stories, some going as far back as to ancient Native American beliefs about coyotes. Do these stories have any meaning to Remy and Baux, or are they just tall tales? Most important, is the coyote friend or foe? Meanwhile, miles away, as the storm barrels in, a man stays alone in his darkened, shadow-filled house. He's lost all his dogs, but he's lost something even more significant -- he's lost his wife, the love of his life. He's getting lost in the shadows. Grief pulls and tugs at him, threatening to sweep him away from the world of the living. Will these forces come together and if they do, what will happen? From the imaginative mind of author David Weiskircher, A Healing Way: Two Dogs, A Coyote And An Old Soul is an extraordinary adventure into the emotion-charged world of love and loss that will intrigue readers of all ages.

This book chronicles the transformation of the holistic health movement over the past three decades, as it increasingly influences the delivery of health care in America. In it, he describes the battle for legitimacy by alternative therapeutic practitioners, and the biomedical profession's increasing interest in the possibilities of a complementary and integrative medical system. Baer examines a variety of professionalized and lay heterodox therapeutic systems, including chiropractors, naturopaths and acupuncturists, homeopaths, bodyworkers, and lay midwives. He shows, ironically, how the holistic movement may become more limited as it gains acceptance and becomes integrated into mainstream, professional medicine. This book is a valuable resource for instructors, students, professionals and others interested in public health issues, health policy, medical studies, health economics, medical anthropology and sociology.

Coyote Speaks describes the strengths, the strategies, and the resilience a therapist needs to work successfully with alcoholics and addicts. It reports what a therapist sees, hears, smells, and feels in the midst of treating those yet to achieve sobriety, those recently sober, and those with years of recovery behind them. In the Navajo cosmology, those possessed by Coyote are neither inherently evil nor morally lacking, but like alcoholics and addicts they suffer from a malady of the soul as much as the body. The provocative humor of Coyote stories illustrates the mercurial and quixotic nature of the alcoholic and addict in treatment, while evocative case histories from the author's private practice reveal the humanity behind a disease that binds two individuals in a struggle toward honesty, humility, and sobriety. Coyote Speaks explores the darkness of alcohol and drug addiction, the humility we accept when we acknowledge our limitations as therapists, and the redemption we witness as we attend to a disease that is at best treatable. It is about caring enough, sometimes too much, and about knowing when to let go. It is about the importance of examining the trickster in each of us, and it is about listening, when Coyote speaks.

In this original and superbly researched work, a Jungian-trained psychiatrist explores ancient Navaho methods of healing--methods that use ritual and vibrant imagery to bring the psyche into harmony with the natural forces that surround it. Through his interactions with Navaho medicine men, Sandner conveys the rigors of their training and the complexities of their purification and evocation rites, including the use of sand paintings as healing mandalas and the esoteric meaning of the pollen path.
