25Days : a proven program to rewire your brain, stop weight gain, and finally crush the habits you hate--forever / Logan Drew A
25 days
"Celebrity trainer and cast member of NBC's Strong, Drew Logan shows us how to rewrite our neurological patterns and break the habits that prevent us from losing weight and living a healthy life. What if we could train our brains to stop weight gain in our quest to be lean, healthy, and fit? Well, we can. Celebrity trainer and cast member of NBC's Strong, Drew Logan knows firsthand how the brain affects our ability to perform and function at our best. After dying three times in three hours--becoming the world's only known medical case to survive three sudden cardiac arrests--he lost his short-term memory. He could no longer follow the complicated diet and fitness regimens he'd used on himself and his clients. He needed to create something simpler. He was shocked to discover that the resulting program was even more effective than his complicated regime of the past. In 25 Days, Drew outlines a unique, multifaceted approach that helps readers rewrite their neurological patterning--what lies underneath those pesky habits that get in our way over and over again--so that the brain's neural pathways, biochemistry, and hormones work together effectively, seamlessly, and efficiently. He defines what neurological patterns are, how they form, and the reason they're secretly behind why most people fail to lose weight and get in shape. He breaks down these "unhealthy" patterns and shows how to erase them by creating healthier ones with diet, exercise, and a reward system. Included in the book are the 25 Days Grading System, Diet, and Workout Plan, as well as tools that will alert and assist readers throughout the book. 25 Days is one of the easiest--and effective--diets to follow, and Drew will show you that all you need is to adjust your diet and retrain your brain to be in peak shape"--

"The first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana from a holistic family physician who has treated more than six thousand chronic pain patients with cannabis. While the number of patients using medical marijuana increases every year, misconceptions about cannabis and whether it's harmful or dangerous still exist. In Cannabis for Chronic Pain, Dr. Rav explains the potential of marijuana's capacity for healing anyone afflicted with chronic pain.

Fat for fuel : a revolutionary diet to combat cancer, boost brain power, and increase your energy / Mercola Joseph

For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if cancer isn't a genetic disease after all? What if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm, and cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases as well--and show us a radical new path to optimal health? In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what's really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy. Dr. Mercola shows you that you too can to take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel--and it's not what you've likely been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing--not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more. As you read this book, you'll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You'll finally understand the type of fuel it's designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You'll find detailed guidelines for starting and sticking with a ketogenic eating plan. And you won't have to wait a decade or two for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain at the cutting edge of this exciting new discipline, starting right now.
