Allergy Solution: Unlock the Surprising, Hidden Truth about Why You Are Sick and How to Get Well

$16.99
"The Allergy Solution is a game changer."
-- David Perlmutter, M.D., #1 New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain
An epidemic of allergies is spreading around the world. One billion people suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, and food allergies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. In this eye-opening book, award-winning integrated-medicine expert Leo Galland, M.D., reveals the shocking rise of hidden allergies that lead to weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, depression, joint pain, headaches, ADHD, digestive problems, and much more. Astonishing new research shows how each of these is linked to the immune imbalance that is at the root of allergy.

A brilliant clinician, Dr. Galland has unlocked the power of this breakthrough science to help thousands of patients who have struggled with mysterious symptoms answer the question: "Doctor, what's wrong with me?" In The Allergy Solution, he is joined by his son, Jonathan Galland, J.D., a passionate health writer and environmental advocate, in exposing the truth that just as the earth's environment is out of balance, our bodies are out of balance. The modern world, with pollution, unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, and excessive exposure to antibiotics, is fueling the rise in allergies.

The Allergy Solution takes an in-depth look at how we can balance immunity through nutrition and lifestyle to reverse allergies without drugs. It offers an easy nutritional program, starting with a Three-Day Power Wash designed to "clear the tracks," to help us take back control. Do you suffer from asthma, eczema, or sinusitis? Are you sick of pain, fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, depression, anxiety, or wondering what is behind your mysterious symptoms? Let Dr. Galland's clinical experience and unique insights into cutting-edge science guide you back to health.

$16.95
Illustrated exercises for strengthening your life energy to heal yourself and others

- Presents a thorough understanding of ki and teaches how to access ki through breathing

- Includes a series of exercises, accompanied by photographs, for strengthening, smoothing, balancing, and transmitting ki

One morning in 1979 Mallory Fromm awoke in his Tokyo apartment with agonizing pain shooting through half of his body. A series of specialists were unable to cure the pain, which grew worse until Fromm could no longer walk. Just when he had given up all hope, a friend introduced him to an aged Japanese woman who cured him using her healing art based on ki, the life energy that animates the entire universe, and that flows through each and every one of us.

The Book of Ki presents you with a thorough understanding of what ki is, then teaches you how to access your ki. A series of exercises teaches you how to strengthen, smooth, and balance your ki, and shows you how to transmit your ki to heal yourself and others. Photographs accompanying each exercise clearly show you where to position your hands to maximize the flow of ki in the body.

The Book of Ki also tells the story of Kayoko Matsuura, the brilliant healer who saved Mallory Fromm and countless others. It is an in-depth and moving account of a woman whose simple but revolutionary healing art the West is only now ready to understand.

    Goddesses Never Age

    $16.99
    Though we talk about wanting to "age gracefully," the truth is that when it comes to getting older, we're programmed to dread an inevitable decline: in our health, our looks, our sexual relationships, even the pleasure we take in living life. But as Christiane Northrup, M.D., shows us in this profoundly empowering book, we have it in us to make growing older an entirely different experience, for both our bodies and our souls.
    In chapters that blend personal stories and practical exercises with the latest research on health and aging, Dr. Northrup lays out the principles of ageless living, from rejecting processed foods to releasing stuck emotions, from embracing our sensuality to connecting deeply with our Divine Source. Explaining that the state of our health is dictated far more by our beliefs than by our biology, she works to shift our perceptions about getting older and show us what we are entitled to expect from our later years--no matter what our culture tries to teach us to the contrary--including:
  • Vibrant good health
  • A fulfilling sex life
  • The capacity to love without losing ourselves
  • The ability to move our bodies with ease and joy
  • Clarity and authenticity in all our relationships--especially the one we have with ourselves
  • And she brings it all together in a 14-day Ageless Goddess Program, offering tools and inspiration for creating a healthful and soulful new way of being at any stage of life.
