Comprendre et pratiquer le r gime Seignalet
Pourquoi un organisme se met-il subitement à dysfonctionner après des années de bons services ? Pourquoi développe-t-on telle ou telle maladie chronique ? Alors que l'on s'intéresse le plus souvent aux symptômes, qu'en est-il de la ou des causes d'une maladie ? On sait qu'il existe une prédisposition génétique, variable d'un individu à l'autre, face à laquelle nous sommes encore impuissants. Mais on sait que la santé dépend aussi de facteurs de l'environnement sur lesquels il est plus facile d'agir. L'alimentation, carburant de notre organisme, est, pour le Dr Jean Seignalet, auteur de L'alimentation ou la troisième médecine, le premier de ces facteurs environnementaux. Ses hypothèses démontrent comment une alimentation bien choisie peut prévenir, mais aussi freiner totalement, le processus de nombreuses maladies chroniques. Les arguments scientifiques et les résultats pratiques de sa méthode alimentaire pour 91 maladies au mécanisme jusque-là mystérieux, sont largement détaillés dans L'alimentation ou la troisième médecine, ce qui permet de comprendre pourquoi et comment la méthode alimentaire hypotoxique est efficace. Afin de simplifier l'approche et de tirer tous les profits de cet ouvrage complet et décisif qui s'adresse au grand public comme aux médecins, nous vous proposons ce petit guide destiné à en faciliter la lecture et la compréhension. Une large partie consacrée aux aspects pratiques de la méthode alimentaire, reprend les principes du régime de Jean Seignalet, et propose des conseils et des astuces utiles au quotidien.

With an introduction by Andrew Solomon 'It stands alone in the literature of manic depression for its bravery, brilliance and beauty.' Oliver Sacks I was used to my mind being my best friend.

While pursuing her career in medicine, she was affected by the same exhilarating highs and catastrophic lows that afflicted many of her patients.

God ll Cut You Down
An unlikely journalist, a murder case in Mississippi, and a fascinating literary true crime story in the style of Jon Ronson, for fans of "Serial." A notorious white supremacist named Richard Barrett was brutally murdered in Mississippi in 2010 by a young black man named Vincent McGee. At first the murder seemed a twist on old Deep South race crimes. But then new revelations and complications came to light. Maybe it was a dispute over money rather than race—or, maybe and intriguingly, over sex. John Safran, a young white Jewish Australian documentarian, had been in Mississippi and interviewed Barrett for a film on race. When he learned of Barrett’s murder, he returned to find out what happened and became caught up in the twists and turns of the case. During his time in Mississippi, Safran got deeper and deeper into this gothic southern world, becoming entwined in the lives of those connected with the murder—white separatist frenemies, black lawyers, police investigators, oddball neighbors, the stunned families, even the killer himself. And the more he talked with them, the less simple the crime—and the people involved—seemed to be. In the end, he discovered how profoundly and indelibly complex the truth about someone’s life—and death—can be. This is a brilliant, haunting, hilarious, unsettling story about race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South from an outsider’s point of view.
