Crip World contains poems exploring sick and disabled queer experience through body stories and small moments. Hard Girls is a mapping of tough femininity in the bodies of the poet, and her lovers and comrades.

Looking at the lowest level inside a single cell, we see a whirlwind of activity going on twenty-four hours a day.

Yet, the human body is so fragile, if it were not for its incredible design, we would not exist! Each day we are discovering more about what goes on in our bodies. In volume I, we discuss some of the fascinating aspects of our awesome machine; the manufacturing of energy, how the body sends and receives messages, how the body maintains equilibrium, how the body repairs itself, what happens when the body is under attack from invaders, Epigenetics, DNA, why does cyanide kill so fast, and much more.

Publisher: North Atlantic Books
ISBN: 9781583945896
Release Date: 2012-05-29
Genre: Medical

Complementary and alternative approaches to health and medicine have become increasingly widespread as the limits of conventional treatments become more apparent. Holistic Anatomy presents an authoritative study of anatomy, physiology, and pathology but expands the discussion by connecting the science of the body to a variety of alternative modalities to explore how human beings exist within—and interact with—their environment, and how they experience existence in emotional and spiritual terms. Basic scientific terminology and detailed descriptions are interwoven with informal, sometimes humorous observations, facts, and ideas about life. The mechanisms, structure, and functions of the body are explored, along with how they relate to spiritual and energetic paradigms, emotions, and ecological principles. The first half of the book covers basic anatomy and physiology, describing each major system of the body and how they interrelate. This part includes a thoughtful discussion of aging and the dying process. The second half focuses on models of health and disease, both traditional and holistic. Topics include western pathology, emotional health, five element medicine, and the spiritual cause for disease.
