With her encouragement and gentle guidance, you will let go of the burden of living life as a weight number and reclaim your energy, self-esteem and personal power.

Transformation: MK Mueller's program is not about losing weight but "releasing" pounds that hold you back by dragging you down and making you vulnerable to health risks. MK will help you GET REAL - with food, with yourself and with others. She will help you bet back in touch with long-lost dreams, find the courage to achieve them, and motivate you to keep going. The 8 to Your Ideal Weight  low sugar food program in MK Mueller's breakthrough book will reshape your body while it restores your power and confidence. You will love how it:

HEALTH SECRETS THAT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE

Do you find your medical conditions don’t get better and prescription drugs don’t live up to expectations?

No matter how you feel right now, Dr. Blaylock’s Prescriptions for Natural Health will give you the lifeline you need. In this book you will discover the key diet and lifestyle factors you must embrace to achieve peak health and wellness—right now and in the years to come.

Dr. Blaylock reveals:

• Specific supplement recommendations for nearly any health issue you could face
• How to fight back against the diseases of aging with a simple anti-inflammatory diet
• Why you must avoid specific substances in your food that can damage your brain, heart, lungs, and other organs— especially if you are over 50
• How you can drink your daily veggies without messy juicing
• Safe and effective natural remedies for a full range of conditions including cancer, brain and heart disorders, diabetes, digestive illness, skin problems, pain, and prostate concerns

Natural health encompasses two equally important aspects: specific remedies for what currently ails you, and the diet and lifestyle factors that enable your body to avoid disease and premature aging. This book is designed to help you address both points. A health condition, whether temporary or chronic, is a warning sign from your body that things aren’t working the way they’re supposed to, and that changes need to be made. With Dr. Blaylock’s help, you will learn how to heal 70 health conditions, and identify and correct the underlying dietary and lifestyle habits that cause and perpetuate them.

The book discusses diagnosis and treatment of dozens of medical conditions plaguing men and women: cancer, skin problems, brain and heart diseases, prostate disorders, diabetes, and many more. In addition, Dr. Blaylock reveals how to relieve common troubles such as pain, ringing in the ears, constipation and other digestive issues, vision problems, mood disorders, and other ailments. You will also see how natural products are superior to many pharmaceutical drugs, and learn more about the exciting new field of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Unfortunately, mainstream medicine does not encourage or support optimal health. If you truly want to maintain a healthy body far into the future, read and follow Dr. Blaylock’s advice today.

Ian Blumer, M.D.
Q. You’ve been sent for a stress test. Does this mean your doctor thinks there’s something wrong with your heart?

A. Not necessarily. Doctors often schedule stress tests when they are certain a patient’s heart is healthy. So why the test?

In What Your Doctor Really Thinks, Ian Blumer looks at the doctor-patient relationship, and explains what your doctor will and won’t tell you in the examining room. Blumer lets you know what is going on in your physician’s head, and suggests what should be going on in your head, when you present him or her with symptoms. Fatigue, chest pain, headaches, abdominal pain, dizziness, shortness of breath ... Blumer covers a variety of symptoms and discusses what direction the examination may take.

This book is a look into the psyche of the doctor and the patient during their meetings. It is a discussion of what both parties might be thinking, but not saying, and it reveals the so-called "mind games" that often take place. It tells people why, without their having even realized it, they have just left a doctor’s office not knowing if the "growth" they have is worrisome or harmless, if they have a dim future or a good one. It tells people why doctors are often evasive, or, at times, downright rude.

What Your Doctor Really Thinks is not an aid to self-diagnosis. It is not a compilation of medical anecdotes glorifying the practice of medicine. And it is not a self-help guide to teach you about the disease that afflicts you. It is, rather, an aid to understanding your doctor, and to understanding yourself. Everyone from the health-conscious to the hypochondriac will find familiar symptoms in Blumer’s book. You may find comfort in knowing that your symptoms are nothing to worry about; or you may find reason to see your doctor about something that may be more serious than you had thought. Regardless, you will learn not just what a doctor’s diagnosis might be; you will also learn why they have made that diagnosis, and what the diagnosis means.
