Get Your Health Back for Good In 30 Days

Millions of Americans have thyroid disorders and don't even know it. Dr. Becky Campbell, who has years of experience in the field, was one of those people but cured herself using this revolutionary program. What makes this approach different--and more effective for lifelong results--is that it looks for root causes and offers a well-rounded, holistic treatment plan that addresses lifestyle, diet, environmental toxins and more. This way, you can fix the underlying problem rather than covering up the symptoms.

Because the thyroid affects every system in the body, a whole host of symptoms can arise and can vary from person to person. To help individuals find the root cause of their thyroid disorder, Dr. Becky Campbell explains the seven hidden triggers that cause illness: gut infections, leaky gut and food sensitivities, vitamin deficiencies, HPA-axis imbalance, heavy metal toxicity, sex hormone dysfunction and chronic infections. She then provides her all-natural treatment plan, which includes a highly effective and easy-to-follow 30-day reset diet, so you can find which foods work for your body and which do not. She will also help you adjust your lifestyle with recipes for toxin-free products, ways to reduce stress and much more.

Invest in your health and use The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan to heal your body for life.

Longevity Plan: Seven Life-Transforming Lessons from Ancient China

Longevity Plan: Seven Life-Transforming Lessons from Ancient China
$25.99

From a renowned Johns Hopkins- and Stanford-educated cardiologist at Intermountain Medical Center--a hospital system that President Obama has praised as an island of excellence--comes the story of his time living in Longevity Village in China, and the seven lessons he learned there that lead to a happy, healthy, long life

At forty-four, acclaimed cardiologist John Day was overweight and suffered from insomnia, degenerative joint disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. On six medications and suffering constant aches, he needed to make a change. While lecturing in China, he'd heard about a remote mountainous region known as Longevity Village, a wellness Shangri-La free of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, dementia, depression, and insomnia, and where living past one hundred--in good health--is not uncommon.

In the hope of understanding this incredible phenomenon, Day, a Mandarin speaker, decided to spend some time living in Longevity Village. He learned everything he could about this place and its people, and met its centenarians. His research revealed seven principles that work in tandem to create health, happiness, and longevity--rules he applied to his own life. Six months later, he'd lost thirty pounds, dropped one hundred points off his cholesterol and twenty-five points off his blood pressure, and was even cured of his acid reflux and insomnia. In 2014 he began a series of four-month support groups comprised of patients who worked together to apply the lessons of Longevity Village to their lives. Ninety-two percent of the participants were able to adhere to their plans and stay on pace to reach their health goals.

Now Dr. Day shares his story and proven program to help you feel sharper, more motivated, productive, and pain-free. The Longevity Plan is not only a fascinating travelogue but also a practical, accessible, and groundbreaking guide to a better life.

Menopause Manifesto: Own Your Health with Facts and Feminism

Menopause Manifesto: Own Your Health with Facts and Feminism
$18.95
Just as she did in her groundbreaking bestseller The Vagina Bible, Dr. Jen Gunter, the internet's most fearless advocate for women's health, brings you empowerment through knowledge by countering stubborn myths and misunderstandings about menopause with hard facts, real science, fascinating historical perspective, and expert advice.

I feel more equipped to care for my patients, challenge the patriarchy, and empower & educate thanks to her work and advocacy." --Dr. Danielle Jones (Mama Doctor Jones)

"An exhilarating read and a comprehensive review of all things menopause." --North American Menopause Society



"Gunter mixes sound medical information with a bit of humor and a lot of candor...[this] frank and expert guide provides an informative and reassuring look at a long, often baffling and infuriating phase of life." --Booklist

The only thing predictable about menopause is its unpredictability. Factor in widespread misinformation, a lack of research, and the culture of shame around women's bodies, and it's no wonder women are unsure what to expect during the menopause transition and beyond.

Menopause is not a disease--it's a planned change, like puberty. And just like puberty, we should be educated on what's to come years in advance, rather than the current practice of leaving people on their own with bothersome symptoms and too much conflicting information. Knowing what is happening, why, and what to do about it is both empowering and reassuring.

Frank and funny, Dr. Jen debunks misogynistic attitudes and challenges the over-mystification of menopause to reveal everything you really need to know about:

*Perimenopause * Hot flashes * Sleep disruption * Sex and libido * Depression and mood changes * Skin and hair issues * Outdated therapies * Breast health * Weight and muscle mass * Health maintenance screening * And much more!

Filled with practical, reassuring information, this essential guide will revolutionize how women experience menopause--including how their lives can be even better for it!

"Read this book immediately." --New York Times bestseller Ayelet Waldman, author of A Really Good Day and Love & Treasure

"This is the new 'it' book for women who want to prepare for or understand what menopause is (and isn't)." --Dr. Jennifer Lincoln

Our Daily Meds

Our Daily Meds
$16.00

An "angrily illuminating" (The New York Times) exposé of Big Pharma's corrupting influence in America today

In the last thirty years, pharmaceutical companies have seized control of American medicine by putting their marketers in charge. They invent diseases in order to sell the pills that "cure" them. They sway doctors by giving them resort vacatopms, gourmet meals, and fistfuls of cash. They advertise prescription drugs at NASCAR races, on subways, and even in churches. Medicines can save lives, but the relentless promotion of these products has come at tremendous cost. Prescription pills taken as directed are estimated to kill one American every five minutes. More Americans are addicted to medications than cocaine. And roads have become less safe as the over-medicated take to the wheel. In Our Daily Meds, journalist Melody Petersen connects the dots to show how subtle, far-reaching, and dangerous Big Pharma's powers have become.
