The impact of nutritional medicine has had a dramatic and controversial--but documented--impact on the lives of Dr.Strand's patients and can now change readers' lives too.
When Dr. Ray Strand found himself in a losing battle, unable to successfully treat his wife who had suffered chronically with pain and fatigue, he agreed to try the regimen of nutritional supplements that a neighbor suggested. Much to his surprise, his wife's condition began to improve almost immediately. That amazing turn of events led him to dedicate himself to researching alternative therapies in medicine, particularly in the arena of nutritional supplements.
Dr. Strand's illumination of the body's silent enemy-oxidative stress-will astound you. But, more importantly, his research will equip you to protect or reclaim your nutritional health, possibly reversing disease and preventing illness.
Bestselling author Dr Joseph Mercola shows you the profound and achievable health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. We all know that food is medicine - yet going without food is one of the single best things you can do for your health. Short, doable fasts, when strategically timed, are an incredibly powerful metabolic intervention, dovetailing perfectly with a ketogenic diet to activate your body's fat-burning mode. This in turn can ward off insulin resistance, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, optimize brain function, prevent neurological problems, support weight loss and more. In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr Joseph Mercola explores the health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Topics include: how our food is making us sick and what we can do about it the physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation how regular one-day fasts support fat burning and detoxification while minimizing hunger and side effects how to monitor your progress with lab tests 'This will be an exciting journey for you,' Dr Mercola writes. 'I am beyond excited for you to implement what I consider to be one of the most powerful physical strategies to help you not only recover your health, but also improve it to levels you likely never believed were possible.' 'KetoFast combines the insulin-lowering effect of the ketogenic diet with the time-tested healing power of fasting. This revolutionary approach promises to deliver unprecedented health benefits.' Dr Jason Fung, author of The Complete Guide to Fasting and The Obesity Code

During two feverish decades between the world wars, Bernarr Macfadden did more to educate the world about healthy eating, alternative medicine, regular sexual activity, and exercise than anyone in history. His disciples included Upton Sinclair and Charles Atlas; among his employees were Walter Winchell, Ed Sullivan, and Eleanor Roosevelt. He launched the worst newspaper in U.S. history, founded a whole-grain utopian community in the New Jersey suburbs, trained fascist cadets for Mussolini, and came within a hair's breadth of being elected senator from Florida--running on a physical fitness platform. Yet today few have heard of this larger-than-life entrepreneur who changed American society. In "Mr. America," Mark Adams illuminates Macfadden's captivating, ambitious, and unparalleled life.

The modern world can present the body as a machine that just needs to be regularly exercised. However, it is a remarkably sensitive organ in which a lot of our pain and hope is stored and that we need to interpret and handle with subtlety. This impact of our body upon our mind is something which needs to be explored as it is easy to pay attention to one more than the other and to to ignore the crucial balance between the two. This is a book filled with reflections and exercises designed to help us live more harmoniously and maturely within both mind and body. It gives guidance on how to calm our minds with bodily exercises that work on the real sources of our anxieties. It suggests how to be less rigid in, and timid about, our bodies and how to relax into them in a way we might not have done for far too long. It offers ideas on how to accept the way we look, and how to treat the body in order for it to assist the mind in yielding its very best ideas. The impacts of activities such as singing, dancing and art are explored along with the liberation of spirit that these might offer. This is a book, both theoretical and practical, that will improve our relationship between our physical and mental selves and allow us a route to a life of greater self-assurance, wisdom and freedom to be ourselves.

With a 14-day meal plan, 75 delicious recipes, food lists, and gut-healing strategies, The Paleo Gut Healing Cookbook is your comprehensive gut-reset guide. Restoring gut health is one of the key tenets of the Paleo diet. By removing allergy-provoking, nutrient-devoid foods such as grains, legumes, dairy, sugar, and artificial ingredients, generalized inflammation in the body is reduced, gut health is restored, and autoimmune symptoms are alleviated. However, what to eat is only part of the equation; to restore digestive health, we also need to replicate how our paleolithic ancestors ate. Modern-day eating habits such as: eating quickly, eating while stressed, eating too many different types of foods at one meal, and eating at the wrong times of the day can negate even the most nutritious diet. This book gives you the whole equation for restoring gut health. The Paleo Gut Healing Cookbook combines flavorful, nourishing Paleo and AIP recipes with 10 key digestive strategies to address both the "what to eat" and "how to eat," including: Rhythmic Eating/Interval Fasting to allow gut-repair time between meals Mindful Eating to activate the parasympathetic nervous system ("Rest & Digest" state) for more efficient breakdown of food Food Combining to optimize absorption and assimilation of nutrients. The restorative recipes include: Creamy Ginger, Pear, and Butternut Squash Soup Teriyaki Salmon and Bok Choy Bone Broth Garlic Kale Rosemary Parsnip Puree Chicken Pad Thai with Green Papaya Noodles Smoked Salmon Salad with Jammy Eggs No-churn Blueberry Cardamom Nice Cream Cranberry Orange Flourless Muffins Heal your gut for good with the recipes and strategies in The Paleo Gut Healing Cookbook.
