    The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure and The Hormone Reset Diet shows every woman how to create a lifestyle that will help her look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging. Feel destined for cellulite, saddle bags, and belly fat? Does your family come from a long line of Alzheimer’s, cancer, or heart disease? Will nothing help your aging skin or declining libido or flagging energy? This book is for you. The body is magnificent but it doesn’t come with a lifetime warranty, or an operating manual. You’re the result of millions of years of evolution, but many of the adaptations that helped your ancestors survive are now working overtime to accelerate the aging process. The assumption here is that we are our genes and therefore trapped by the past. The good news is that your genetic code—the DNA sequence that is the biochemical basis of heredity—can play a minor role in the way you age. The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT—trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week program that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young. Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five-key factors that lead to accelerated aging -the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol and is as follows: Feed—Week 1Sleep—Week 2Move—Week 3Release—Week 4Expose—Week 5Soothe—Week 6Think—Week 7 Younger increases not only your lifespan, but also your healthspan. Dr. Gottfried’s program makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.

    Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that is commonly used to help people understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviours. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including depression, addictions, anxiety and phobias. The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behaviour. For example, a person who spends a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents and other air disasters may find themselves avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behaviour therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.

    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.

    We’ve been told that dairy does a body good, but the truth is that cheese can be dangerous. Loaded with calories, fat, and cholesterol, cheese can make you gain weight and leads to a host of health problems like high blood pressure and arthritis. Worse, it contains mild opiates that make it addictive, triggering the same brain receptors as heroin and morphine. In The Cheese Trap, Dr. Neal Barnard presents a comprehensive program to help listeners break free of their cheese addiction so they can lose weight, boost energy, and improve their overall health. This easy-to-follow diet features a treasury of healthy recipes that will tame even the toughest cravings—from pizza, to lasagna, to ice cream and cheesecake.

    All the money in the world doesn’t mean a thing if we can’t get out of bed. And the healthiest body in the world won’t stay that way if we’re frazzled about five figures worth of debt. TODAY Show financial expert Jean Chatzky and the Cleveland Clinic’s chief wellness officer Dr. Michael Roizen explain the vital connection between health and wealth—giving readers all the tactics, strategies, and know-how to live longer, healthier, more lucrative lives. The same principles that allow us to achieve a better body will allow us to do the same for our investment portfolio. For instance, physical and financial stability comes down to the same equation: Inflow versus outflow. Do we burn more calories than we ingest? Likewise, are we making more money than we spend? The authors detail scientific ways to improve our behavior so that the answers tilt in the readers’ favor. They also offer ways to beat the system by automating how we do things and limiting our decisions in the face of too much food or too much debt. Chatzky and Roizen provide a plan for both financial independence and biological strength with action steps to get you there.

    The Cannabis Manifesto is both a call to action and a radical vision of humans' relationship with this healing but controversial plant. Steve DeAngelo, the founder of Harborside Health Center, the world's largest medical-cannabis dispensary, presents a compelling case for cannabis as a wellness catalyst that must be legalized. His view that there is no such thing as recreational cannabis use challenges readers to rethink everything they thought they knew about marijuana.   The Cannabis Manifesto answers essential questions about the plant, using extensive research to fuel a thoughtful discussion about cannabis science and law, as well as its biological, mental, and spiritual effects on human beings. With a cultural critic's eye peering through the lens of social justice, DeAngelo explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions—from the family, to the workplace, to the doctor’s office and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will forever change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use.

    This comprehensive and exciting course will teach you everything that you need to know about the power of crystals and how you can go on to use them. Students will learn how to begin using crystals, what to look for in a crystal, the meaning of each, the various ways of healing with crystals, and how to incorporate this healing into daily life. Knowledge is solidified by exercises taken throughout the course and a round of questions at the end of each module. The course introduces itself by taking students through a brief history of the use of crystals through a variety of civilisations, and by providing a guide on the terminology used to describe crystals. From here the Crystal Healing Course continues to teach students how crystals grow and the systems, shapes, and formations that they are made up of. Students start to explore the benefits of crystal healing and how the colour of a crystals can alter their healing properties. The third module is all about how to treat your crystals. Students are shown techniques for clearing and cleansing stones, how to activate and dedicate them, and methods for attunement, programming them and giving them intent. Having learned how to treat crystals, the fourth module of the Crystal Healing Course teaches students how to care for their crystals, with guidance on how to correctly store, respect, and honour them, as well as providing an understanding on grounding and centring crystals and grounding cords. By the fifth module, students will have a good understanding of crystals, and so the more common stones, gemstones, and crystals used in healing, are introduced. The healing attributes, colours, meanings, associated properties, and correspondences to other disciplines of each are discussed. Although crystal healing can be used exclusively, it is often paired with other practices. Module 6 explains how to combine crystals healing techniques with massage, Reiki, palm reading, teacup reading, astrology, and numerology. The seven chakras are used in many therapies, the seventh module of the Crystal Healing Course explains what chakras are, how they relate to this subject area, and how to perform chakra and aura scanning techniques in crystal healing. With the knowledge gained from the previous module, module 8 explains what to do with this information, as students are taught how to clear chakra cords and connections, as well as discovering aura combing techniques and how to use them safely, and learning how to repair energy leaks and blockages. Though you may have not heard the terminology, you will have likely seen a laser wand before. The Crystal Healing Course’s ninth module introduces laser wands and how they are used in healing. Also in this module, students will be taught about quartz healing and balancing techniques, and the neurological balance method. Module 10 provides crystal techniques, along with special crystal patterns and layouts using crystal grids. Other methods are explored also, with past-life healing, parental release and self-healing, along with positive affirmations for healing, all being discussed. The eleventh module of the Crystal Healing Course teaches students how to amplify healing with intensifying techniques. It also talks about the unique qualities of using quartz in clusters or as a group, and distance healing with crystals and crystal grids are introduced. Another way to use a crystal collection is in the creation of crystal elixirs and essences. Module 12 teaches students how to safely create their own and how to use them after creation, with tips and recipes given. As previously mentioned, crystals are used in a number of therapies. With this in mind Module 13 gives students a practical guide on how to mediate using crystals, and discusses crystal journeying, in relation to astral travel. Module 14 of the Crystal Healing Course goes into a lot more detail about programming stones for specific colour energy work. This module also discusses safety and ethical practice, possible contra-indications, what to do in a healing crisis, and the relationship between some common crystals and systems of the body. Another concept that you may have heard about, are the concerns of the meridians of the body. The fifteenth module gives students a basic overview about this and the principle of Kundalini in crystal work, in relation to the evolution of the spirit. Also, if you are considering working as a crystal healer, this module is where you learn about considerations you should make when preparing your healing space and it also offers tips on keeping client records. The final module of the Crystal Healing Course talks students through the first types of stones they should get and how to go about increasing their collection, as well as caring for and gifting stones. You will also learn the specifics of how to conduct a crystal healing session from start to finish and how to perform various types of healing.
