The Wonders of Nutrition: Most of today’s diseases are chronic degenerative diseases that originate from malnutrition. The link between diet and disease grows increasing significant over the decades as our modern food becomes more processed and the food chain gets more contaminated.We are seeing more people – and more young people – suffering from chronic degenerative diseases. Scientists are concerned that the children of today may die from these chronic degenerative diseases before their parents. That’s because children today are already the 8th generation fed on processed modern foods since the Industrial Revolution began in the 1760s. Their bodies have reached zero tolerance for any more processed foods. Nature is our healer and prevention is the best way out. This book “The Wonders of Nutrition” discusses how our genes and our bodies respond to food and a changing lifestyle. Nutrition works wonders when your genes harmonise with healthy food and a healing lifestyle.This book is dedicated to mothers, who nurture the health of our future generations. Roadmaps to Recovery: Nearly all health disorders have an underlying link to nutrition. It could be undernourishment due to eating refined and processed foods – as well as the products of modern agriculture – that lack adequate amounts of essential nutrients. It could also be the result of overeating or eating an imbalanced diet that does not provide nutrients in the optimal proportions. Even the practice of taking food supplements, which is intended to address nutritional deficiencies, can lead to nutritional imbalances. This link between nutrition and chronic degenerative diseases is becoming more critical as the modern diet becomes increasingly processed and artificial, while the food-chain and the environment becomes contaminated with the chemical pollutants. Many of these chronic degenerative diseases – including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, chronic inflammatory diseases, cancer as well as mental and behavioural disorders – have now reached epidemic proportions. Since these are acquired diseases, they can largely be reversed. It requires a radical change in diet – to remove those factors that cause disease and focus on those that support the healing process. A nutrient-rich diet of natural, unprocessed foods is essential. In addition, modern scientific research suggests that a major part of the solution lies in switching from carbohydrates to fats as the main source of energy. This book, Roadmaps to Recovery provides nutritional roadmaps for your journey towards recovery. You are the master of your destiny.

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.
 
Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery.  
 
This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us.  Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie’s own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks.

This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for.

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.

Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.

Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's wildly popular course "The Science of Willpower," The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity.

Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters. For example, readers will learn:
Willpower is a mind-body response, not a virtue. It is a biological function that can be improved through mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, and sleep.Willpower is not an unlimited resource. Too much self-control can actually be bad for your health.Temptation and stress hijack the brain's systems of self-control, but the brain can be trained for greater willpowerGuilt and shame over your setbacks lead to giving in again, but self-forgiveness and self-compassion boost self-control.Giving up control is sometimes the only way to gain self-control.Willpower failures are contagious—you can catch the desire to overspend or overeat from your friends­­—but you can also catch self-control from the right role models.In the groundbreaking tradition of Getting Things Done, The Willpower Instinct combines life-changing prescriptive advice and complementary exercises to help readers with goals ranging from losing weight to more patient parenting, less procrastination, better health, and greater productivity at work.
