Natural Buckwheat Hull pillow relieves headaches, neck pain, back pain, snoring, and improves sleep. Guaranteed.

(NOTE FROM JACKI: I personally use this pillow and found it a "God-send" for my chronic headaches. Prior to getting MCS, I used a foam chiropractic pillow, but can no longer use them because of the outgassing of the foam. I tried an organic wool/cotton pillow, but it didn't give any neck support and I woke up every night with a headache. Since getting the buckwheat hull pillow, I tolerate it very well and no longer wake up with a headache every night!)

- by Thomas L. Ogren -

This book presents a new idea and does so very well indeed.

Here, Ogren accomplishes both these aims.

better basicsBetter Basics for the Home: Simple Solutions for Less Toxic Living

- by Annie Berthold-Bond -
(author of "Clean & Green")

These days, more and more people are saying no to "better living through chemistry" and yes to a lifestyle that is less toxic and more environmentally friendly. This trend toward a more natural lifestyle has become something of a crusade for Annie Berthold-Bond. After developing hypersensitivity to even very low concentrations of chemicals, Berthold-Bond was forced to rid her life of as many toxins as possible. "It wasn't until I had to be away from chemicals that I began to realize how many we lived with. The extent of the contamination is startling - from hair spray and floor wax to dandelion killers and plastic shower curtains and other products that line our hardware stores and supermarket shelves."

This book represents the culmination of her search for a more sustainable lifestyle. Taking her cue from an earlier time, Berthold-Bond, former editor in chief of Green Alternatives for Health and Environment, offers more than 800 simple and practical alternatives to common household toxins, covering everything from skin care to gardening. And the good news is that adopting her suggestions and formulas isn't hard at all. "Mixing up face creams or wood stain isn't much different than cleaning the windows with vinegar, soap, and water instead of using Brand Name X, or making a cake with flour, eggs and milk instead of buying a mix," she asserts. "With a few simple staples we can clean our houses, wash our hair, rid the dog's bed of fleas, and do many other things as well." If you have your doubts, here is her formula for metal polish:

3 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon flour, and enough white distilled vinegar to make a paste. Scoop the paste onto a clean sponge, and polish the metal clean. Rinse with hot water and buff dry.

Sure, these days it's literally impossible to lead a life that is completely toxin-free. But you can significantly reduce your exposure, and picking up a copy Better Basics for the Home is a great way to get started!



Brain Allergies: The Psychonutrient Connection Including Brain Allergies Today: An Update

- by William H. Philpott -

The medical link between inflammation of the brain and subsequent behavioral dysfunction and infections; nutritional deficiencies; and environmental substances, such as foods, chemicals, and electrical fields, has long been proposed by forward-thinking doctors and researchers. This branch of healing, known as orthomolecular medicine, is gaining ever-widening acceptance by mainstream medicine.

In this updated edition of their classic work on the subject, Dr. Philpott and Dr. Kalita explain, in layperson's terms, how supernutrition, magnetic therapy, and other cutting-edge therapies can offer hope for those suffering from so-called untreatable conditions.



Brain Fog

- Bruce Haney -

This is the odyssey of a human child - a bright, talented, strong and athletic boy who got trapped and imprisoned by forces that took over his body and robbed him of his brain and every skill he had known.

This is the story of that grotesquely lost soul fighting for survival, fighting to understand those forces that tortured him, fighting to share what he learned about chemical illness with a resistant medical and scientific community and disbelieving public.

This is the adventure of a man who survived the despicable indignities of an intolerant system - survived because of his unique unconquerable spirit, his deep underlying faith, and his search to apply the Golden Rule not only to his fellow human creatures, but to the Earth itself.

This is the story of an impossible, but beautiful human who discovered the mystery and truth of our universe: if we humans insist on trying to force our will on Nature and to overpower Her, we will destroy ourselves and all that we love. Salvation comes only when we work as One with Nature.

This is Bruce’s story - his gift to us of hope and faith.


Bug Busters/Poison Free Pest Controls for Your House and Garden

- by Bernice Lifton -

Pests, whether of food, the body, the home, or garden, include medically important species and affect all of us at some time. Their attacks may tempt us to use pesticides, which often are more dangerous to our health than the pests themselves. As this book points out, there are safe alternatives to poisons. If we learn a pest's habits, simple measures can be taken to "shut them out," "starve them out," and "wipe them out." This concise, well-organized compendium focuses on roaches, pantry moths and beetles, rats, mice, flies, mosquitos, fleas, ticks, lice, bedbugs, clothes moths, carpet beetles, silverfish, crickets, termites, carpenter ants, and various garden pests. It reveals their habits and outlines common sense and often clever measures to control or eliminate them. Safe pesticides are discussed and their proper use explained. If all else fails, advice is given on finding a competent pest-control company.

If they're deadly for insects... would they not also harm humans?

This book picks up the torch lit by Rachel Carson more than thirty years ago in her "Silent Spring" and sounds a clarion call to every citizen to get involved in the War to preserve and protect the environment and the public health.

dazed and fatiguedDazed and Fatigued in the Toxic 21st Century

- by Mark Llewellyn Hall -

Where do you turn there are no answers, no cures, no potions, no actions you can take to dig yourself out of a hole you did not create, never anticipated, or even imagined you could find yourself in?

As we head into the 21st Century, we are witnessing more and more young people succumbing to a host of auto-immune related illnesses brought on by the stresses of a post-modern industrial era - a high paced, highly competitive workforce, overcrowded living environments, and polluted, chemically contaminated air, food and water resources.

In this book Mark Hall offers an astonishing first-person experience in recovering from chronic fatigue syndrome. This is a story about picking up the pieces left behind on the way to adulthood, and learning to love and accept yourself in a toxic world. Written in an alternative voice that is raw and at times wildly spontaneous, the story weaves poetry with ironic insights and commentaries on everything from politics to music and literature. It is the classic tale of the hero's journey - a fall from grace into wilderness, and the quest to find enlightenment on the other side. Most of all, it is an inspiring story that demonstrates the resolution and ability to recover and find peace, after years of personal crisis.



defining mcsDefining Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

- by Bonnye L. Matthews -

The number of people suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is greater than the number suffering from AIDS, yet the general public and the medical community know very little about the disease. More and more people are disabled daily, despite the fact that the condition does not have to occur. In Part One of this work, experts review the research into the disease, along with treatment strategies. Part Two examines the legal recourses available to MCS sufferers, such as workers' compensation claims and product liability suits. How the medical community has often worked against MCS sufferers is the focus of Part Three, demonstrating that medical opposition to the disease is unfounded. The editor, an MCS sufferer, details her own case in Part Four.

The Dispossessed: Living With Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

- by Rhonda Zwillinger -

A powerful book of photographs of MCS patients that includes their stories in their own words. Also included are an excellent foreword, prologue, epilogue and reference/resource sections. This is a chilling documentary depicting the life of fifty people who are afflicted with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. MCS is a diseaese caused by our chemical society, where people become "allergic" to everyday chemicals, such as fragrances, gasoline, plastics and conventional houses. The book gives us a short glimpse of how people with this disease live their lives, how they cope, and have arrived at this situation. Each of the fifty portraits are accompanied by an artful photograph that carries the book and tells more than words. The pictures are not just showing the people, but also their special living arrangements, ranging from a tent in the desert, to regular houses, and other unique arrangements, like the guy who must air out his newspaper before he can read it. The aim of the author is to display this growing problem to a larger audience, in a form that makes it comprehensible to the layperson.

These are the major symptoms of potentially unrecognized allergies. Does your child suffer from any of the following?

• Allergic Nose Rub • Eye Circles • Red Ears • Red Cheeks • Eye Wrinkles • Aggression • Lack of Alertness • Mottled Tongue •

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Doris Rapp offers a simple yet effective approach to handling "problem" children. "Is This Your Child?" shows parents how to identify the common foods, chemicals, or common allergic substances that could be the culprits that cause some children or adults to feel unwell or act inappropriately. If your child is always sick, hyperactive, a slow learner, or cranky, the first question you should ask is not "What drug should be prescribed?" or "What have I done wrong as a parent?" Instead, find out the cause.

Dr. Rapp gives sensible suggestions about how these reactions to foods and environmental factors can be recognized, prevented, and treated. With this information, many affected children should feel, act, behave, and learn better. If you can detect unsuspected environmental illness in your child - or yourself - you can change your lives so you're more content, happy, and free of illness.

Silent Spring, released in 1962, offered the first shattering look at widespread ecological degradation and touched off an environmental awareness that still exists. Rachel Carson's book focused on the poisons from insecticides, weed killers, and other common products as well as the use of sprays in agriculture, a practice that led to dangerous chemicals to the food source. Carson argued that those chemicals were more dangerous than radiation and that for the first time in history, humans were exposed to chemicals that stayed in their systems from birth to death. Presented with thorough documentation, the book opened more than a few eyes about the dangers of the modern world and stands today as a landmark work.

This fortieth anniversary edition celebrates Rachel Carson’s watershed book with a new introduction by the author and activist Terry Tempest Williams and a new afterword by the acclaimed Rachel Carson biographer Linda Lear, who tells the story of Carson’s courageous defense of her truths in the face of ruthless assault from the chemical industry in the year following the publication of Silent Spring and before her untimely death in 1964.

Tired or Toxic?

- by Sherry A. Rogers -

Dr. Rogers does a good job of presenting technical information in a way that it is readable and understandable by anyone. At the same time, she includes enough technical depth and references to satisfy the advanced or professional reader. This book, for the first time, not only described some of my unusual symptoms, but their significance, cause, and biochemistry. She is one of the few doctors that approaches illness from an understanding of its biochemistry and causes rather than the treatment of symptoms. She explains how to deal with illness at the causitive level. This is the only hope for real cures. The book covers a wide variety of illnesses. She writes that chemical sensitivity and allergies may be implicated in more serious diseases.

When she becomes allergic to everything, Heather and her family are forced into a desperate race against time to save her life. As they probe for answers and challenge the findings of conventional medicine, the cause of the mysterious illness gradually become clear: Heather is being poisoned. The culprit-common chemicals which are so much a part of our twentieth century environment. However, with determination and her family's support, Heather wins the battle.

Lies, Damn Lies and the Public Relations Industry

- by John C. Stauber, Sheldon Rampton -

Sure, many of us in this modern world are cynical. The most cynical may even suspect that the news is manipulated and massaged by sponsors, that corporations act in their best interests, that political campaigns are determined not by votes, but by bucks, and that we don't get "all the news that's fit to print" but instead, "all the news that gets the ink". But even the most media-savvy amongst you will be awed by the behind-the-scenes descriptions of the Public Relations industry in action so masterfully described in this book. If you want your eyes to be opened, open them upon the pages of this book. (But remember: there are some very important people counting on you, and they really would prefer that you didn't ever hear about this book, much less buy it.)
