Why are we able to recognize melodies in our first days of life? Why does making music actually switch off the genes that signal stress? It is because music is part of who we are at the deepest level—and we don't need any special talent or training to harness its power to enhance our lives. With Music Medicine, music therapist Christine Stevens presents an information-packed resource, filled with scientifically-based practices for accessing and attuning to the natural healing properties of music. Drawing from a wealth of research and her own pioneering healing work in some of the most challenging places around the world, Stevens invites you to discover:Accessing the four elements of music-rhythm as medicine for the body, melody for the heart, harmony for the soul, and silence for the mindConscious listening-how to open yourself fully to the healing potential that music offersYour musical self-accessing your voice, spirit, and inner music for healing and changeClinical research, case studies, and stories that reveal music's extraordinary capacity to reduce stress, prevent illness, and strengthen the immune systemHow music connects us to each other and creates community, even in places of war and conflictInspirational guidance on how to use music for spirituality, personal growth, and well-beingHealing playlists-each chapter features valuable download recommendations and links for selecting healing musicThe drum massage, creating your power song, full-body listening, and other effective and enjoyable practices

“Music's medicine awaits your discovery,” says Christine Stevens. “I invite you to release any doubts that you are musical, and to realize the power of music to nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul.” With Music Medicine, she provides a thoroughly researched and practical guide for integrating the healing benefits of sound into your life—and discovering the extraordinary transformation that occurs when we liberate our own inner music.


“Music can provide the support we need in life's challenging moments, and more importantly, music can become part of our daily routine for spirituality and health. Enjoy this powerful path for your own healing—through the joy, and the great peace, of music.”
—Joan Borysenko, PhD, from the foreword of Music Medicine

“Music Medicine brings home to our hearts the truth that music is an organic medicine. Christine Stevens reveals how the intricate beauty of harmony, rhythm, and song course through our veins, uniting us with the cosmic music of the universe.”
—Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning and Spiritual Liberation

“Music Medicine is an interstate of sound that awakens, soothes, dances, and silences us.”
—Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect and The Harmony of Health

“Each of Christine's lessons has helped me to become a musical instrument and a singer of my own song.”
—Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles

“In this book, Christine provides a powerful and educational curriculum for music therapists, musicians, and anyone interested in music wellness. Music becomes the language to unite and heal across the continents.”
—Antoinette Follett, Editor-in-Chief, Making Music

The first book to explain from both scientific and spiritual perspectives the healing and transformative powers of harmonics.

• Includes practical exercises demonstrating how to use sound in healing and meditation, including "Vowels as Mantras" and "Overtoning".

• Describes how harmonics can be used as "sonic yoga" for meditation and deep relaxation to enhance energy.

• Over 25,000 copies of first editions sold in 6 languages.

• Author won 1999 Visionary Awards for Best Healing-Meditation Album.

The Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, and Rome understood that vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe and developed specific chants and tones for healing the mind, body, and spirit and achieving altered states of consciousness. Overtone chanting--also called vocal harmonics--is the ability of the human voice to create two or more notes at the same time. Healing Sounds explains how to perform vocal harmonics and experience their transformative and curative powers.

An internationally recognized master teacher, the author provides diverse examples of sound healing systems incorporating both mystical and medical traditions--from Tibetan monks' use of tantric harmonics to Dr. Alfred Tomatis' use of Gregorian chanting--and their capacity to affect us on all levels. With many easy-to-follow exercises, Healing Sounds is the first book to show from both the scientific and spiritual viewpoints how to use the transformative power of sound for healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

A New York Times bestseller from certified weight-loss expert JJ Smith, Green Smoothies for Life offers a brand-new meal plan to incorporate green smoothies into your everyday routine while developing healthier long-term eating habits and improving your overall health.

More than a weight loss plan, the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, designed by nutritionist and certified weight-loss expert JJ Smith, became a way of life. Readers reported that they not only shed pounds but they also slept better, thought more clearly, and were in better over-all health, with some adherents, in consultation with their doctor, even moving off medication. As delicious as her green smoothies are, however, the cleanse was designed only to jumpstart a detox and a new approach to eating—it’s not a permanent solution.

In her new book, Green Smoothies for Life, the highly anticipated follow up to the #1 New York Times bestseller 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, Smith presents a way that green smoothies can be incorporated into your daily regimen. With over thirty recipes for everything from hot dinners to desserts and snacks, sixty thoughtfully composed green smoothie recipes, a thirty-day meal plan and the corresponding shopping lists, the book provides you with a step-by-step prescriptive daily regimen that shows you how to eat mindfully and healthily. In addition to green smoothies and color photographs of select recipes, the book includes more than twenty effective methods to detox (which helps fuel weight loss), information on Smith’s DHEMM (Detox, Hormonal Balance, Eat, Move and Mental Mastery) weight loss system, and testimonials from dieters who’ve change their approach to not just food but also life since while following her advice.

Whether you are just starting out on your weight loss journey or already a smoothie convert, Green Smoothies for Life is the essential next step in continuing your pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.
