The author of the bestselling The Immune System Recovery Plan shares her science-based, drug-free treatment plan for the almost fifty million people who suffer from arthritis: an amazing 3-step guide to eliminate the disease naturally.
Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the world - greater than both back pain and heart disease. One example, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) , is the most common autoimmune disease, affecting 1% of the US population, and almost 68 million people worldwide. Conventional medicine tends to treat arthritis with strong, gut-damaging, immune-suppressing pain medications, temporarily relieving the symptoms of the disease without addressing its root causes. Now, in her groundbreaking new book, Dr. Susan Blum, a leading expert in functional medicine, offers a better approach to healing arthritis permanently.
Dr. Blum's groundbreaking three-step protocol is designed to address the underlying causes of the condition and heal the body permanently by:
-Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and more -Healing your gut to heal your joints -Reducing inflammation without medication
Dr. Blum's innovative method includes a two-week plan to quickly reduce pain through anti-inflammatory foods and supplements; followed by an intensive gut repair to rid the body of bad bacteria and strengthen the gastrointestinal system for a dramatic improvement in arthritis symptoms and inflammation; and then addresses the emotional issues that contribute to inflammation, and eating a simple, Mediterranean inspired diet to maintain a healthy gut.
Featuring detailed case studies, including Dr. Blum's own inspiring personal story, Healing Arthritis offers a revolutionary way to heal your gut, repair your immune system, control inflammation, and live a happier, healthier life ... arthritis-free.
2-Day Diabetes Diet
By Palinski, Erin
Diet just 2 days a week to drop the pounds and dodge type 2 diabetes! In a recent study, researchers in the UK found that restricting carbohydrates just two days per week was superior to a standard, daily calorie-restricted diet for both reducing weight (about 9 pounds lost vs 5 pounds) and lowering insulin levels (reduced by 22% vs 4 %). Based on this and other research indicating that safe weight loss is the key to reversing and preventing diabetes, Reader's Digest has partnered with registered dietitian and diabetes expert Erin Palinski to distill the latest science to create an easy-to-follow plan that allows people with diabetes to have their cake—and other carbs—and still keep their blood sugar under control. A diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming and frightening, and even many of those who have lived with diabetes for years often struggle with the question of what they can eat.
Why Good Kids Act Cruel
By Ph.d., Carl Pickhardt
Why do many good children treat one another so badly? This is a question parents eventually face and most start thinking about as their children prepare for high school. But the hard truth is, high school is too late. The pre-teen years are actually when it begins, when the cruelty is even worse, causing more anxiety and stress for children already facing an enormous amount of change in their lives. Early adolescence is a phase of anxiety, of uncertainty, of insecurity. To make matters worse, although all kids are going through the same transformation, none of them share what it is like, each feeling alone, isolated, and unique. The result is that even fantastic kids will do and say harmful things. Why Good Kids Act Cruel is the first book to give you an understanding of why cruelty happens during these years and how to help your child through these difficult times.

Sugar Smart Express
By Alexander, Anne
Sugar is everywhere. Once confined to candy, desserts, and the sugar bowl, it has made its way into our peanut butter, bread, tomato sauce, and salad dressing. The average American eats nearly 130 pounds of added sugar a year, and 75 percent of 86,000 foods analyzed in one study contained added sweeteners. This information is now at the forefront of media, public policy, and water cooler conversation, and Americans are wising up to what a sugar-laden diet means for their health: added pounds that won't budge; heightened risk of Alzheimer's, diabetes, and heart disease; moodiness; fatigue; and cravings that seem to rule their daily lives.Readers came out in droves when Prevention launched its Sugar Smart movement, making The Sugar Smart Diet a New York Times bestseller and creating a demand for more sugar-savvy content from the brand.

It's Not About the Broccoli
By Rose, Dina
You already know how to give your children healthy food, but the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose discovered a powerful truth: when parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids - surprisingly - eat poorly.

Dr. Rose describes the three habits - proportion, variety, and moderation - all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. With It's Not About The Broccoli you can teach your children how to eat and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

The Cookie Book
By Breitenbach, Maritza
Self-esteem and self-empowerment are vital for a rewarding and fulfilling life and are often bolstered by belief systems and societal views. But what if these systems or views prevent us from truly accepting ourselves because of miseducation or taboo? Such is the case for most women and the vagina, an organ so vital to our very existence, yet shrouded in secrecy and shamefully hidden.
In Maritza Breitenbach's The Cookie Book, she sets out to dispel taboo and promote female self-empowerment through her artistically beautiful and historically rich exploration of the human vagina. Fun, easy-to-read and light, The Cookie Book is a "must-read" for young adults and women of all ages just learning about or ready to take ownership of their own hidden treasure. The Cookie Book also details important rites of passage from tot to teen, pregnancy and childbirth to menopause.
Inspired by her love of research and her own inability to talk about the vagina with confidence and ease, Breitenbach found women embarrassed and anxious about its appearance, aroma, general function, among others issues. Breitenbach believes when we view our vaginas as a source of pride and wonder rather than something of which to be ashamed, we empower ourselves beyond question in the most essential part of our being.
The Cookie Book is filled with rare and interesting historical snippets and has over 100 color photographs and illustrations by famous painters such as Picasso, Rodin, de Goya, among others, all designed to encourage women to share information with friends and loved ones. The beautiful artwork, historical facts and cartoons promotes communication, which Breitenbach says is essential to liberating women and the vagina from taboo and bringing ownership back to every individual that has one or loves one.
10 Things You Probably Don't Know About the Vagina:
1. Female infants lubricate vaginally in the first four to six hours of life 2. The absence of a biological father through separation or divorce is known to bring on early menstruation 3. Famous painter Rodin did an illustration of the vagina titled "Sex of the Female" 4. A scent called "Vulva"--fashioned after the vagina's aroma--can be purchased from Germany and is said to drive men wild 5. Clockwork-powered vibrators were invented in 1734 and used in asylums by doctors hoping to curtail hysteria 6. Napoleon Bonaparte preferred the unwashed smell of Empress Josephine's "Black Forest" 7. What a woman eats can affect the scent of her vagina 8. Masturbation has a wide range of health benefits 9. In China a vagina with all its hair removed is known as a "white tiger" 10. The average vagina has a pH of 3.8 to 4.5, and maintaining pH is important for overall vaginal health
The Cookie Book has invaluable information for every women as they journey through life--from infancy to adolescence, being a lover and a mother, to menopause and beyond. It explores the vagina's anatomy, aroma, function, the effects of puberty, sexual intercourse, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Young adults and women of all ages (even men) can gain insight into the mystical hymen, g-spot, masturbation and the history of contraception as well as learn how to avoid, recognize and treat vaginal infections and sexually transmitted diseases.
Although based on medical research, The Cookie Book is light, entertaining, fun, and accessible to all women, regardless of academic background. This is the perfect woman-to-woman, mother/daughter, father/daughter gift.
