End chronic pain—for good—with this practical guide from the PBS personality behind Classical Stretch and author of the New York Times bestseller Aging Backwards.

Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability in the United States. Twenty percent of American adults accept back spasms, throbbing joints, arthritis aches, and other physical pain as an inevitable consequence of aging, illness, or injury. But the human body is not meant to endure chronic pain. Miranda Esmonde-White has spent decades helping professional athletes, ballet dancers, and Olympians overcome potentially career-ending injuries and guiding MS patients and cancer survivors toward pain-free mobility. Now, in Forever Painless, she shows everyone how to heal their aching bodies and live pain free.

The root of nearly all pain is movement—or lack thereof. We need to move our bodies to refresh, nourish, and revitalize our cells. Without physical activity, our cells become stagnant and decay, accelerating the aging process and causing pain. People who suffer chronic pain often become sedentary, afraid that movement and activity will make things worse, when just the opposite is true: movement is essential to healing. In Forever Painless, Miranda provides detailed instructions for gentle exercise designed to ease discomfort in the feet and ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck—allowing anyone to live happier, healthier, and pain-free no matter their age.

Miranda Esmonde-White
PBS fitness personality on Classical Stretch and creator of the fitness phenomenon Essentrics, Miranda Esmonde-White offers an eye-opening guide to anti-aging that provides essential tools to help anyone turn back the clock and look and feel younger no matter what age.



Miranda Esmonde-White trains everyone from prima ballerinas to professional hockey players to Cerebral palsy patients: what do they all have in common? All of these people are hoping to heal their bodies, prevent further injury, and move optimally and without pain. In fact, they have the same goals as any of us who are trying to stay young, fit, and reverse the hands of time.



Because the aging of our bodies occurs in our cells, it must be repaired there too—that’s where Miranda’s highly effective and sought-after techniques come in. The body is programmed to self-destruct as we age, but the speed at which it self-destructs is up to us. Recent scientific studies have proven this fact! In Aging Backwards, Miranda offers a groundbreaking guide on how to maintain and repair our cells, through scientifically designed workouts.  



Healthy cells prevent joint pain, muscle loss and weak bones—helping to control weight, increase energy, and improve strength and mobility. Miranda offers readers of all ages the tools they need to look and feel young. Complete with tips, tools, and her Eight Basic Age-Reversing Workouts accompanied by instructional photos and web clips, Aging Backwards will help you grow younger, not older! 


Natasha Turner
New York Times bestselling author Dr. Natasha Turner returns with a simple and effective weight-loss plan that harnesses the power of the six hormones linked to strength, energy, and weight loss.

When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood, and strength, who doesn't need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost is the first book to provide an extensive, scientific overview of the six hormones that influence weight loss. Although it is widely accepted that the thyroid hormones control weight loss efforts, Dr. Turner reveals how the impact of five other hormones--testosterone and DHEAs, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenaline, and glucagon--are equally important when trying to lose weight.

In Dr. Turner's previous bestselling books, she taught you how to identify and solve hormonal imbalances. In The Hormone Boost, she focuses on optimizing what's right and includes a revolutionary plan that has been proven effective for everyone, not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption. With more than 60 recipes and a simple Pick-4 guide to creating meals, smoothies, and salads, the book makes getting the right balance of carbs, fat, and protein easy.

The Hormone Boost is chock-full of tips and positive research findings and features daily progress tracking aids and a weekly workout plan that emphasizes strength training. The book also includes advice about supplements for accelerating fat loss, improving sleep, digestion, and skin appearance, as well as building strong muscles and bones. You will find inspiration in the success stories from Dr. Turner's clinical practice and TV belly-fat makeovers.

Rather than merely targeting weight loss, The Hormone Boost offers total wellness. No more deprivation, irritability, hunger, or fatigue that so often accompany diets. Dr. Turner's plan will have you energized from the start!
