The story began like a dream… A child is born with all the possibilities of a bright future. Nearby, a loving family waits for the son they have always dreamed of. When they become a family, little league, playdates, birthday parties and college scholarships all seem within the grasp of this all-American family. But when the fairy tale ended… The family realizes their precious child is struggling with the most basic developmental milestones, and they vow to love him more. However, the truth of their son’s condition is something that even the strongest family could not undo. His brain has been damaged by alcohol before he was even born. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is the leading cause of birth defects and developmental disabilities in the United States… and there is no cure. One family’s powerful story of faith began. The fight to advocate for their son in a world that did not understand left this family feeling exhausted and hopeless. The isolation of their reality almost destroyed their marriage and their family, until they found strength in a community they never knew existed. They found families that were struggling too. They stepped out of isolation and together they found faith and hope once again.

"The first step in the solution to our health care crisis is not political or fiscal. It involves a grass roots decision to resolutely dissolve the marriage of medicine and health, and to make a new commitment to an ever-deepening relationship between ourselves and the innate capacity within each of us to heal, grow and thrive..."Born Broken is a groundbreaking work that exposes the unspoken paradigm of a health care system that is built around a flawed and narrow view of the human body and living systems. From pregnancy and childbirth to barefoot running and sprained ankles, Dr. Matt Rushford takes us on a fascinating journey across time and deep within our bodies to uncover hidden wisdom, ancient misconceptions, and a newly evolving approach to health and health care that is based on a recognition and alliance with the amazing power of the body to heal.Dr. Matt Rushford draws from his 25 years of experience as a family and pediatric chiropractor and 15 years as an instructor of anatomy & physiology and uses his unique wit and insight to give readers a fresh perspective on their own bodies and the miraculous intelligence that we so easily take for granted.Born Broken explores:* The limitations of western allopathic medicine in the maintenance and enhancement of health* The multidimensional nature of wellness and the need for a multidimensional approach to wellbeing.* The hidden wisdom of our bodies with respect to:o Pregnancyo Birtho Being "sick" with fever, diarrhea, inflammationo "Expendable" body parts like the appendix, tonsils and foreskinFastidiously documented with scientific data, Born Broken is a course correction in the runaway world of Pathologization- reframing the normal as abnormal- as an inevitable by-product of the shotgun marriage of medicine and health care. Entertaining, enlightening and empowering, it will change the way you see your body and your life.

There have always been people who are different. Whether it is their sexuality, mental health, or their way of experiencing the world. Throughout history, perceptions of abnormality have changed for the better (much like fashion, though that hasn't improved all that much so that's probably a bad comparison - horrible fashion seems to be cyclical, much like the negative attitudes towards difference). There are still battles to be won, but on the whole, attitudes and treatment have improved. The aim of this collection is to represent the misunderstood and challenge those who hold prejudice. They are set in different decades to show improvement of treatment, however minor. In these stories, the most important message is for those who can relate to the characters and/or situations and for you to know that things have gotten better, and will continue to get better still.

'And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom' Anaïs Nin Elizabeth Lesser shows how it is possible to deal with fearful change or a painful loss and be reborn, like the Phoenix, to a more vibrant and enlightened self. In Broken Open she shares penetrating tales from her own life, the lives of those she has taught and counselled and the lives of friends and family, tales that explore the big challenges of death, illness and divorce, as well as the daily roller coaster rides of relationships, parenting and work. Woven into these stories are quotations from great poets and philosophers. And following them is a toolbox of valuable aids, including meditation, psychological enquiry and spiritual practice. The result is a book that runs the gamut of the human experience, and in a style that is genuine, funny, often heartbreaking, but always inspiring, she shows us how we, too, can allow the pain of adversity to break us open instead of breaking us down, making us bitter or closing our hearts.

Born in the USA examines issues including midwifery and the safety of out-of-hospital birth, how the process of becoming a doctor can adversely affect both practitioners and their patients, and why there has been a rise in the use of risky but doctor-friendly interventions, including the use of Cytotec, a drug that has not been approved by the FDA for pregnant women. Most importantly, this investigation, supported by many troubling personal stories, explores how women can reclaim the childbirth experience for the betterment of themselves and their children."--Jacket.
