Raw Cure: Healing Beyond Medicine: How Self-Empowerment, a Raw Vegan Diet, and Change of Lifestyle Can Free Us from Sickness

$15.95
More Info
People are finally catching on. There is no way around the fact that the consumption of meat, eggs, the variety of products made from dairy, and foods containing toxic chemicals and refined ingredients trigger the most common diseases afflicting humans. While we remain fearful of nuclear accidents, wars, floods, fires, tornadoes, typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, and car crashes, the truth is that the vast majority of people in commercialized civilization are more likely to die from the symptoms resulting from their dependence on prescription drugs, living a toxic lifestyle, and making poor dietary choices. Chief among those bad choices are eating meat, dairy, eggs, refined and fatty foods, and foods containing synthetic chemicals. Meat, eggs, and dairy products are not ideal food sources for humans. We have simply been lied to by the multi-billion-dollar industries that are responsible for producing these low-quality foods, as they continue to profit from products that are the result of the mass-breeding, mistreatment, and killing of harmless, sentient beings that can feel pain just as much as we can. The truth is that eating meat, dairy, eggs, and refined and chemically-altered foods is deleterious to our health. The common degenerative and chronic diseases we are afflicted with today are directly linked with the food choices we make. By eating more raw fruits and vegetables, removing animal products and junk foods from our diet, and making healthier lifestyle choices we will soon find that we no longer need the vast amount of what we call 'healthcare'. We will drastically reduce the costs associated with surgery and our dependence on toxic, synthetic chemical drugs. Incidence of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and obesity will plunge, and we - and Earth - will be much healthier. Rather than choosing to be ignorant of the truth, it is time for us to take back our health, empower ourselves, gain compassion, and quit contributing to these acts of cruelty we call 'animal farming'. Doing so will greatly reduce our use of fossil fuels that are destroying life on Earth. Using medical studies, and reliable scientific research, the author provides strong evidence that the link between nutrition and disease is more paramount than we once believed it to be. This book exposes the truth, and will guide you on your journey to take back your health.

Rich Food Poor Food : The Ultimate Grocery Purchasing System

Rich Food Poor Food : The Ultimate Grocery Purchasing System

$24.95
More Info

Do you get confused while poring over labels at the grocery store, trying to determine the healthiest options? What makes one box of cereal better for you than another, and how are we supposed to decipher the extensive lists of mysterious ingredients on every package, and then determine whether they are safe or toxic to your family's health? With nearly 40,000 items populating the average supermarket today, the Rich Food Poor Food - Grocery Purchasing System (GPS), is a unique guide that steers the consumer through the grocery store aisles, directing them to health enhancing Rich Food options while avoiding health detracting Poor Food ones.

Rich Food, Poor Food is unique in the grocery store guide arena in that rather than rating a particular food using calories, sodium, or fat as the main criteria, it identifies the products that contain wholesome, micronutrient-rich ingredients that health-conscious shoppers are looking for, like wild caught fish, grass-fed beef, raw/organic cheese, organic meats, pastured eggs and dairy, organic produce and sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, while avoiding over 150 common unwanted Poor Food ingredients such as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, refined flour, GMOs, MSG, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, pesticides, nitrites/ nitrates, gluten, and chemical preservatives like BHA and BHT.

So while other food swapping grocery guides may give the green light to eating Kellogg's Fruit Loops with Sprinkles, Oscar Mayer Turkey Bologna and Hostess Twinkies based on their lower calories, sodium, and/or fat levels, you won't find these heavily processed, food-like products identified as Rich Food choices in Rich Food, Poor Food. That doesn't mean this guide to micronutrient-sufficient living leads readers to a boring culinary lifestyle. Quite the contrary! The Caltons offer Rich Food choices in every aisle of the store including desserts, snacks, sauces, hot dogs, and other fun foods!

This indispensable grocery store guide raises the bar on food quality as it takes readers on an aisle-by-aisle tour, teaching them how to identify potentially problematic ingredients, while sharing tips on how to lock in a food's nutritional value during preservation and preparation, save money, and make homemade versions of favorite grocery store staples. Regardless of age, dietary preference or current health, Rich Food, Poor Food turns the grocery store and farmer's market into a micronutrient pharmacy--filling the shopping cart with a natural prescription for better health and longevity.

    More Info

    For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh. Some were downright dangerous. Nobody seemed to be able to stick with low-fat regimens for any length of time. And a diet is useless if you can't stick with it.

    So Dr. Agatston developed his own. The South Beach Diet isn't complicated, and it doesn't require that you go hungry. You'll enjoy normal-size helpings of meat, poultry, and fish. You'll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You'll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, as you lose weight, you'll lose that stubborn belly fat first!

    Dr. Agatston's diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first 2 weeks!) and has become a media sensation in South Florida. Now, you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet.

    South Beach Wake-Up Call

    South Beach Wake-Up Call

    $27.99
    More Info
    From Dr. Arthur Agatston, creator of the South Beach Diet comes an urgent message: We need to wake up to the reality of just how fat and sick we are as a nation.

    Statistics don't lie: In the past 30 years Americans have become heavier and unhealthier than at any time in our history. Yet while most of us recognize the devastating toll this is taking on our lives-compromising our productivity, our self-esteem, our energy, and ultimately our very longevity-we seem stuck in the sedentary, fast-food lifestyle that got us here in the first place.

    But there is hope. In The South Beach Wake-Up Call, Dr. Agatston sheds light on the root causes of our current health crisis and also offers clear, actionable advice for addressing and reversing this growing problem. He explains how inflammation brought on by our toxic lifestyle is destroying the body's ability to heal and repair itself, and causing our tissues and organs to rust, or grow old before their time. He shows why losing that belly fat is far more than just a matter of regaining your bikini body, and how lack of sleep and inadequate exercise can rob you of years of vigorous good health. He also takes a close look at the American diet and what should (and shouldn't) be on the menu and exposes the real cost of eating out and consuming cheap fast food.

    With a section of brand-new recipes created to maximize your intake of Megafoods- those foods packed with anti-aging antioxidants and dense with nutrients, not calories-plus meal plans and an easy-to-follow fitness routine for increasing both core strength and cardiovascular health, The South Beach Wake-Up Call is an essential prescription for anyone ready for a life-enhancing approach to diet and good health.

    The book features:

    - The South Beach Wake-Up Program: 7 simple, sustainable strategies for age-reversing, life-saving weight loss and optimal health
    - The South Beach Gluten Solution to combat the potential harm that gluten-containing foods can have on sensitive individuals, including gastrointestinal problems, skin rashes, metabolic disorders, and a host of autoimmune conditions
    - The Wake Up and Move 2-Week Quick Start Plan, an exercise program combining both cardio and core conditioning
    - 15 MegaFoods for Healthy Eating, how to buy healthy food on a budget, how to snack strategically, and 32 all-new recipes from breakfasts to desserts using MegaFood
    - Stories from real-life Super Moms who are fighting back and taking control of their families' health, plus tips for parents throughout

    The Ornish Diet has been named the "#1 Best Heart-Healthy Diet" by U.S. News & World Report for seven consecutive years!

    From the author of the landmark bestseller Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease comes an empowering new program that teaches you how to lower high blood pressure, lose weight, lower your cholesterol, or reverse a major disease by customizing a healthy way of eating and living based on your own desires, needs, and genetic predispositions.

    Dr. Dean Ornish revolutionized medicine by directing clinical research proving-for the first time-that heart disease and early-stage prostate cancer may be stopped or even reversed by his program of comprehensive lifestyle changes, without drugs or surgery. His newest research was the first to show that changing your lifestyle changes your genes in men with prostate cancer-"turning on" disease-preventing genes, and "turning off" genes that promote breast cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses, and in only three months. This study documented, also for the first time, that these lifestyle changes may significantly increase an enzyme that lengthens telomeres-the ends of your chromosomes that control how long you live. As your telomeres get longer, your life gets longer. Your genes are not your fate.

    Featuring one hundred easy-to-prepare, delicious recipes from award-winning chef Art Smith, The Spectrum can make a powerful difference in your health and well-being.

    Praise for The Spectrum

    "In 1993, Hillary asked Dr. Dean Ornish to consult with us on improving our health and well-being and to train the chefs who cooked for us at The White House, Camp David, and Air Force One. I felt better and lost weight when I followed his recommendations. As this book illustrates, my genes may have been improving as well! If you want to see where medicine is likely to be five or ten years from now, read this book today."--President Bill Clinton

    "The Spectrum is absolutely fantastic. Time and again, Dr. Dean Ornish has scientifically proven that what was once thought to be medically impossible is, in fact, possible. His work is truly revolutionary."--Mehmet Oz, M.D. Professor of Surgery & Director, Cardiovascular Institute, Columbia University Medical Center, and author of You: The Owner' s Manual and You: On a Diet

    Starting Monday

    Starting Monday

    $17.95
    More Info

    Starting Monday is based on the simple premise that when our behaviors don't align with our expressed intentions, we've got a conflict going on, often outside of our awareness. The book helps readers dig deeply into their psyches to figure out what mistaken beliefs and needless fears are holding them back from achieving their health and fitness goals. The polarized feelings for disregulated eaters to identify and resolve fall within these seven key areas: 1) create lasting change, 2) making conscious choices, 3) feel deserving, 4) how to comfort themselves, 5) know what's enough, 6) manage intimacy, and 7) developing a healthy identity.

    Starting Monday first helps readers unearth their mixed feelings in these seven areas, then teaches them how to change their beliefs and behaviors to resolve them. Using humor, plain talk, examples from her clinical experience, reflection exercises, case studies, and homework, Koenig lets troubled eaters know that their yo-yo patterns of eating and self care are due to conflicts. She shies away from easy answers and, instead, provides hope and concrete actions to developing a permanent, positive relationship with food.
