    From the bestselling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick. Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10 percent of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans’ history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

    From “the most delightful MD ever” (Buzzfeed), an enlightening book about how bodies work—and how to keep them working in a world full of myths and misinformation In 2014, James Hamblin launched a series of videos for The Atlantic called “If Our Bodies Could Talk.” With it, the doctor-turned-journalist established himself as a seriously entertaining authority in the field of health. Now, in illuminating and genuinely funny prose, Hamblin explores the human stories behind health questions that never seem to go away—and which tend to be mischaracterized and oversimplified by marketing and news media. He covers topics such as sleep, aging, diet, and much more: Can I “boost” my immune system? Does caffeine make me live longer? Do we still not know if cell phones cause cancer? How much sleep do I actually need? Is there any harm in taking a multivitamin? Is life long enough? In considering these questions, Hamblin draws from his own medical training as well from hundreds of interviews with distinguished scientists and medical practitioners. He translates the (traditionally boring) textbook of human anatomy and physiology into accessible, engaging, socially contextualized, up-to-the-moment answers. They offer clarity, examine the limits of our certainty, and ultimately help readers worry less about things that don’t really matter. If Our Bodies Could Talk is a comprehensive, illustrated guide that entertains and educates in equal doses.

    Fat is an obsession, a dirty word, a subject of national handwringing—and, according to biochemist Sylvia Tara, our least understood body part. The Secret Life of Fat brings together historical perspectives with cutting-edge research to reveal fat’s true identity: an endocrine organ that is critical to our health. Fat triggers puberty, enables our reproductive and immune systems, and even affects brain size. It’s so critical, in fact, that our own body endowed it with self-defense measures: fat can grow back despite what we eat using stem cells; it influences our appetites; and it uses bacteria, genetics, and even contagious viruses to expand itself. Although we spend $60 billion annually fighting fat, our efforts are often misinformed and misdirected. Tara shows how we can finally control our elusive adversary by knowing it better. Her insights will spark a revolution in our physical, and mental, health.

    Insomnia? Gone. Anxiety? Gone. All without medication. Unpleasant side effects from blood pressure pills? Gone. A cheap and effective way to combat cardiovascular disease, immune dysfunction, obesity, and GI disorders? Yes. Sounds too good to be true? Believe it. Contemporary science confirms what generations of healers have observed through centuries of practice: Breath awareness can turn on the body’s natural abilities to prevent and cure illness. The mental and physical stresses of modern life, such as anxiety, frustration, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, high blood pressure, digestive woes, and immune dysfunction can all be addressed through conscious control of your breath. In addition, it can increase energy, accelerate healing, improve cognitive skills, and enhance mental balance. Yet most of us stopped breathing in the anatomically right way, the way to take advantage of these benefits, when we were four or five years old. We now mostly breathe in a way that is anatomically incongruous and makes for more illness. Dr. Belisa Vranich shows listeners how to turn back the tide of stress and illness and improve the overall quality of their lives through a daily breathing workout. In a fascinating, straightforward, jargon-free exploration of how our bodies were meant to breathe, Dr. Vranich delves into the ins and outs of proper breathing. By combining both anatomy and fitness with psychology and mindfulness, she gives listeners a way of solving health problems at the crux and healing themselves from the inside out. Breathe is an easy-to-follow guide to breathing exercises that will increase energy, help you lose weight, and make you feel calmer and happier.

    Chakra Yoga Volume 2 is a 50 minutes guided yoga class, suitable for those with knowledge of basic yoga practices. This class naturally progresses from Chakra Yoga Vol 1. It has been devised to help balance and cleanse the chakras and increase awareness between the physical body and the energetic body. The energy that travels around the body is known as prana; prana is our vital life force and is also the universal energy. Prana is something shared and experienced by all, it creates the bond between us and the entire universe. Prana travels around the body through a network of energy channels known as Nadis. In certain locations the prana becomes denser and spins in a clockwise direction. These are the chakras. To help us maintain good health physically and emotionally. It is important that energy does not become stagnant or spin too fast. This yoga class will help to balance and cleanse the chakras and encourage pranic energy to travel freely around the body. The postures included in this class have been carefully selected to stimulate the seven main chakras that are positioned between the base of the spine and the crown of the head. The class combines yoga postures and visualisation techniques to direct awareness towards the chakras helping to balance and cleanse them.
