In this surprising and remarkably practical book, Dr. Skotnicki reveals the harmful effects of modern skincare habits and provides a step-by-step guide to preserve the microbiome, fight aging and develop beautiful, problem-free skin.

Women, men and children are having more skin problems today than ever before. Sensitive skin prevalence has skyrocketed, and the number of people reacting to cosmetics is climbing. Why? Dermatologist Sandy Skotnicki argues that the cause is a key element of our contemporary lifestyle: the grooming and beauty habits that the advertising and personal-care product industries have encouraged us to pursue. Those miraculous cleansers, creams and balms we're buying to protect our outer layer may actually end up harming the body's largest organ.
     In Beyond Soap, Dr. Skotnicki argues that the best state for normal skin is the natural state—the one that avoids disturbing the skin's protective barrier and the bacteria that accompanied the body throughout its evolution. A combination of diagnosis and prescription, Dr. Skotnicki explains the problem with society's current cleansing and beauty habits, then provides a practical guide on how to fix things with a 3-step product-elimination diet that will help you remove unnecessary and potentially harmful ingredients from your beauty and skincare regime, returning the skin to the condition nature intended. Beyond Soap also includes indispensable advice on how to wash and care for the skin of adults, babies and children, followed by a common-sense beauty regimen intended to stave off aging, reduce skin problems and return the face and body to its natural glow.

Finally, the solution to the #1 reason we don’t exercise: time. Everyone has one minute.
 
A decade ago, Martin Gibala was a young researcher in the field of exercise physiology—with little time to exercise. That critical point in his career launched a passion for high-intensity interval training (HIIT), allowing him to stay in shape with just a few minutes of hard effort. It also prompted Gibala to conduct experiments that helped launch the exploding science of ultralow-volume exercise. Now that he’s the worldwide guru of the science of time-efficient workouts, Gibala’s first book answers the ultimate question: How low can you go?
 
Gibala’s fascinating quest for the answer makes exercise experts of us all. His work demonstrates that very short, intense bursts of exercise may be the most potent form of workout available. Gibala busts myths (“it’s only for really fit people”), explains astonishing science (“intensity trumps duration”), lays out time-saving life hacks (“exercise snacking”), and describes the fascinating health-promoting value of HIIT (for preventing and reversing disease). Gibala’s latest study found that sedentary people derived the fitness benefits of 150 minutes of traditional endurance training with an interval protocol that involved 80 percent less time and just three minutes of hard exercise per week.
 
Including the eight best basic interval workouts as well as four microworkouts customized for individual needs and preferences (you may not quite want to go all out every time), The One-Minute Workout solves the number-one reason we don’t exercise: lack of time. Because everyone has one minute.
“It’s as if we are all on a big, chemical drunk, and the hangover is a killer.”
—Suzanne Somers, in TOX-SICK

Pioneering health and wellness advocate, Suzanne Somers, delivers a powerful answer in this expose on the immediate and long-term dangers of living in a world that has become increasingly toxic to our health. 

The build-up of toxins in our bodies can lead to myriad health concerns — including weight gain, food allergies, brain disorders, cancer, among many others. Moved to investigate by her own family’s plight, Suzanne sits down with environmental doctors and specialists who share eye-opening information and practical advice for how to survive, thrive, and stay healthy today.

In Tox-Sick you’ll learn how to effectively detox all your body’s systems and the different survival skills that can save your life, from top experts in the field, including:

• Dr. Sherry Rogers, an environmental doctor for over 40 years, shares the truth about detoxification—and where you will likely be if you don’t take it seriously.
• Dr. Nicholas Gonzales shares where cancer comes from and how to manage it by detoxifying the liver and supplementing with enzymes.
• Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker alerts you to mold toxicity, the newest threat to your brain and wellbeing…and just what to do to fight for your health.
• Dr. Walter Crinnion teaches what everyday objects to avoid and the simple diet and lifestyle shifts to clean up your health and home in mere weeks!
• Dr. Stephen Sinatra, America’s leading integrative cardiologist, explains that we have been approaching heart disease all wrong: a healthy gut, detoxed body, and quality fats are each crucial and cardioprotective.
• Dr. Gary Gordon shares new protocols for removing toxic lead from the body, as well as ways to keep the most important gland in your body, the thyroid, clean and healthy.
 
From diet and supplement advice to coconut oil cleanses, everything you need to live clean and enjoy great health is in your hands.
From Zach Berman and Ryan Slater--the longtime friends behind Vancouver's wildly successful Juice Truck--comes an accessible, informative and fresh book on the popular and healthy juicing and cleansing lifestyle.

There are lots of juice books out there, but few get it right. In The Juice Truck, Zach and Ryan make it their mission to make juicing approachable, fun, imaginative and healthy. Their obsession with juicing began when they took a trip to the Himalayas and Nepal, which quickly turned from a journey of self-discovery into a full-blown juice-seeking adventure once they were introduced to the most delicious, locally-sourced juices they had ever tried. They decided then to create the same community and street side accessibility to juice in Vancouver that had inspired them throughout their travels.
Alongside colourful and eye-catching photographs and illustrations that match their company's brilliant branding, The Juice Truck incorporates advice from health coach Colin Medhurst, and outlines the tools you need to make the perfect juice, the science behind juicing, and the benefits of each specific ingredient. The book dives into the juice cleanse and tells you everything you need to know about this health trend, giving you the top 10 tips to consider before embarking on a cleanse. It debunks other cleanses and outlines which ones are actually good for you and how to cleanse in a safe and proper way. The authors also break down and profile their favourite superior foods, tinctures, supplements and boosters. Once the reader is perfectly equipped, Zach and Ryan provide over 110 mouth-watering drink recipes from nut milks, smoothies, juice and hot drinks, as well as easy-to-make and delicious plant-based food recipes that can be eaten alone or accompany the many drink recipes. Interspersed throughout the recipes are case studies by experts in their fields on subjects like meditation, sleep, yoga, fiber, microbes, food allergies, sensitivities and intolerance, and the nervous system.
In addition to appealing to both loyal and first-time juicers everywhere (as well as the dedicated following of the Juice Truck in Vancouver), this book will be the definitive juicing guide for people who live a healthy, active lifestyle, and those who would like to transition to a healthier diet. This is not your average juice book--it's a combination of storytelling, nutrition and tried-and-true recipes that deserves a place in every juicer's kitchen.
