When I first visited Dr. Abel Rodriguez, I had been in pain most of my life. My joints and connective tissues ached, and my tendons felt raw all the time. I had allergies and thyroid problems, and had been a jaw-clencher for more than 16 years.
After my first two visits with Dr. Rodriguez, my body felt better than it had in years. My headache and jaw ache were gone. I had more energy. Four months later, my jaw-clenching has decreased dramatically, my digestive issues are healing, and my joints and tendons no longer ache. I feel better than I have in a long time.

My son was diagnosed as autistic. He didn’t speak the entire two years he was in preschool. Professionals told me, “He won’t get better.” After the first week of treatments with Dr. Rodriguez, my son began smiling and laughing for the first time in his life. He can actually hold a conversation now and lets me know how he’s feeling.

Growing up as one of 13 children in the tiny sugar plantation camp of Kipu, on the island of Kauai in the 1930s and 1940s, always felt like a grand adventure to Harry Yamanaka.
In this collection of his short stories, you will join Harry as he catches frogs to help feed his many siblings; makes his own fishing canoe using corrugated iron roofing; walks along a mile-long road at night with the ghost of Felix, and more.
Harry’s memories of his childhood are humorous, sweet and insightful. He also writes with love and respect about his parents, who immigrated individually from Japan, met on Kauai, fell in love, and together raised their large family on his father’s salary of $35 per month.
When you have finished reading “Kauai . . . in my heart,” Kauai will be in your heart, too.
Everything changed for Yoshiko Kawaguchi on December 7, 1941, the day Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, plunging the United States into World War II.
Until then, Yoshiko had lived with her parents and three siblings in rural Downey, California, where her parents had been farm workers for nearly 20 years.
Four months after the bombing, the Kawaguchi family and 120,000 other Japanese Americans across the country, found themselves imprisoned, perceived by the U.S. as threats to national security, solely because of their Japanese ancestry.
Now 94 years old, Yoshiko Susan Kawaguchi Matsumoto looks back at the five months that she and her family were forced to live in a horse stall at the Santa Anita Racetrack in Southern California, and the two years they were imprisoned in a second internment camp, in the desert of Rohwer, Arkansas.
Eventually Yoshiko and her family were released.
From then on, Yoshiko’s life began to unfold in a series of events more fortuitous and beautiful than she could have ever imagined.
