Today the first copy of my Ultimate Immunity book arrived. Elson Haas and I started writing this September 2013, a few months after my Secrets of Your Cells book was released. A DTC hardback version of Ultimate immunity was out October 2014 but the only way you could get a copy was directly from the publisher Rodale. Since then we have edited it for the slightly shorter paperback version out now as a mass market book that can be preordered from Amazon. It’s so exciting to see this - new cover and all.
My co-author Elson Haas MD has been a pioneer in nutritional medicine and integrative healthcare and our new book brings together his wisdom and expertise along with my understanding of how the immune system works and the mindbody connection. For years I taught PNI (Psycho-neuro-immunology) exploring practical ways for healing. We also address what can throw immune functioning out of balance and strategies for balance including food, qigong, stress management and include some tasty recipes and lifestyle strategies for lessening inflammation, a core issue in many health conditions.
Spice up your life for immune health:
Turmeric that bright yellow spice, commonly found in curry is one of the oldest and most potent anti-inflammatories lessening the pain from arthritis.
Rosemary, (on the left growing in my garden) one of my favorite herbs contains substances that are anti-inflammatory and digestives. Some studies suggest that rosemary can reduce the severity of asthma attacks. Rosemary on chicken or potatoes, a favorite.
(on the right) a favorite in Italian and Greek Cooking, has antimicrobial properties and is a more powerful antioxidant than blueberries.
And don't forget how wonderful tomatoes are this time of year. Cooked into a sauce with olive oil, oregano and rosemary, they make a highly tasty antioxidant and anti-inflammatory food.
Elson and I are now planning day-long immune health workshops and I, of course, continue to offer Romancing Your Cells workshops and soon (October) with Lesley Sullivan, Engaging the Energy of Your Cells.
Dr. Liz Thach and I are delivering out first combined Wine Palate and Shaping Taste as part of WineSpirit offerings. This will be on Sunday Sept. 27 at Black Stallion Estate Winery in Napa. Reservations advised.

Currently my wine portraits can be seen at Reframe Hair Salon Gallery at the Barlow Center in Sebastopol. There is also a never before seen print from my Astrogenetic Code series. This image illustrates Balance and Libra via a photomicrographic expression of the mineral cell salt attributed to Libra, one of the 12 signs of the Zodiac. Yes, I have all 12 photographed. Inquire if you are interested in obtaining your Zodiac expression.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read what's new with me. Let me know what's happening with you.
