Reading Recommendations: Breakthrough, Eight Steps to Wellness, Life Altering Secrets From Today's Cutting Edge Doctors, Suzanne Somers.
Today's most trusted advocate of anti-aging medicine, Suzanne Somers, deepens her commitment to helping people lead healthier, happier lives by opening their eyes to cutting edge, proven remedies and preventative care that most doctors just aren't talking about with patients: longevity medicine and the more progressive study of bioidentical hormones.
As we age, certain hormones diminish, creating an imbalance that can set off everything from perimenopause to cancer, beginning as early as our thirties. This hormonal imbalance is causing many to feel depressed, anxious, fatigued, sexless, sleepless, and ultimately ill, sometimes even terminally. What's more, Somers and twenty doctors in the field of anti-aging medicine argue that the processed chemicals in foods and pharmacuticals we ply ourselves with are actually slowly eroding our bodies and minds. So we're getting slammed twice. From estrogen dominance to deceptive thyroid problems, people are suffering, and most don't have access to the treatment they truly need to get better and thrive, until now.
And, There Was a Woman, La Llorona from Folklore to Popular Culture, Domino Renee Perez.
"How is it there are so many Lloronas?" A haunting figure of Mexican oral and literary traditions, La Llorona permeates the consciousness of her folk community. From a ghost who haunts the riverbank to a murderous mother condemned to wander the earth after killing her own children to an act of revenge or grief, the Weeping Woman has evolved across centuries, yet no truly comprehensive examination of her impact existed until now. Tracing La Llorona from ancient oral tradition to her appearance in contemporary material culture, There Was a Woman delves into the intriguing transformations of this provocative icon.
From La Llorona's roots in legend to the revisions of her story and her exaltration as a symbol of resistance, Domino Renee Perez illuminates her many permutations as seductress, hag, demon, or pitiful woman, Perez draws on more than two hundred artifacts to provide vivid representations of the ways in which these perceived identities are woven from abstract notions, such as morality or nationalism, and from concrete, often misunderstood concepts from advertising to television and literature. The result is a rich and intricate survey of a powerful figure who continues to be reconfigured.
Domino Renee Perez is Associate Professor in the Department of English and the Center for Mexican American Studies at The University of Texas in Austin.
