<p><strong>#1 <em>New York Times </em>Bestseller </strong></p><p><strong>Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir</strong></p><p>"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation."</p><p>—Elizabeth Gilbert</p><p><em><strong>Nightline </strong></em><strong>anchor Dan Harrisembarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.</strong><strong></strong></p><p>After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.</p><p>Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain. <em>10% Happier</em> takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.</p>

If there were a pill that was scientifically proven to help you look 10 years younger, lose fat, improve hormonal health, fight pain and inflammation, increase strength/endurance, heal faster, improve your brain health and increase your energy levels, it would be a billion-dollar blockbuster drug. <br /><br />Hundreds of millions of people would be told to start taking it by their doctors every day. And doctors all over the world would call it a “miracle drug.” <br /><br />Here’s the crazy part: That "drug" exists.<br /><br />But it’s not a pill. It’s red light therapy!<br /><br />Did you know that light has the power to heal your body and optimize your health? <br /><br />Of course, everyone knows about the importance of vitamin D from sunlight (from UV light). But few are aware that there is another type of light that may be just as vital to our health – red and near-infrared light. <br /><br />You may have even already heard about the benefits of red light therapy or seen ads for various devices. <br /><br />But maybe you're skeptical and think it's all just hype or pseudoscience.<br /><br />Believe it or not, there are now over 3,000 scientific studies proving the powerful health and anti-aging benefits of red and near-infrared light therapy! <br /><br />So if it's so great, why isn't everyone already using it?<br /><br />Simple: You used to have to spend $5,000 or more on a laser device, or spend over $100 for each treatment in a medical or anti-aging clinic (where this technology has been used for decades).<br /><br />So here's the great part...<br /><br />New breakthroughs have allowed us to harness these benefits in the comfort of our own home, without the need to spend thousands on an expensive laser device or $100 per treatment at a health/anti-aging clinic. We can now do red light therapy at home, as much as we want, at a tiny fraction of the cost.<br /><br />In this book, Ari Whitten – bestselling author, health expert and founder of The Energy Blueprint – cuts through all the pseudoscience around this complex topic, and takes you on a deep dive into the science of how to use red/near-infrared light therapy to improve your health, your body and your life in dozens of ways.<br /><br />Inside this book, you’ll learn how to use red/near-infrared light therapy to:<br /><br />•Fight skin aging, wrinkles, and cellulite and look 10 years younger<br />•Lose fat (nearly twice as with diet and exercise alone)<br />•Rid your body of chronic inflammation<br />•Fight the oxidative damage that drives aging<br />•Increase strength, endurance, and muscle mass<br />•Decrease pain<br />•Combat hair loss<br />•Build resilience to stress at the cellular level<br />•Speed up wound/injury healing<br />•Combat some autoimmune conditions and improve hormonal health<br />•Optimize your brain function and mood <br />•Overcome fatigue and improve energy levels<br /><br />You’ll also get critical information to get the best results, including:<br /><br />•Specific dosing guidelines for every type of treatment (and how to avoid the big mistakes most people make)<br />•The 5 “bioactive” types of light that affect human cell function and human health<br />•Which health issues respond best to red/near-infrared light therapy<br />•The best light devices to get (and why most devices on the market are a waste of money)<br />•Exact protocols for how to use red/near-infrared light therapy for everything from fat loss, to brain optimization, to skin anti-aging and everything in between<br /><br />Optimal light exposure habits are as essential to good health as good nutrition habits. But the big problem is that, just as many people eat diets of processed junk food and fast food, most people are eating “light diets” of “junk light” and end up with chronic “mal-illumination.” This book will show you how to fix that. <br /><br />Red and near-infrared light therapy is one of the biggest health breakthroughs in the last half century. <br /><br />If you’re serious about your health and improving your body, it’s time to start using this powerful tool in your life.<br /><br />Pick up your copy today by clicking the BUY NOW button at the top of this page!

<p>The thyroid is the new hot topic in health. Across age groups, from baby boomers and their parents to millennials and even children, more and more people—women especially—are hearing that their thyroids are to blame for their fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs, and more. Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.</p><p>As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven’t gone away—people aren’t healing. Labeling someone with “Hashimoto’s,” “hypothyroidism,” or the like doesn’t explain the myriad health issues that person may experience. That’s because there’s a pivotal truth that goes by unnoticed: A thyroid problem is not the ultimate reason for a person’s illness. A problematic thyroid is yet one more symptom of something much larger than this one small gland in the neck. It’s something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that’s responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.</p><p>In <i>Medical Medium Thyroid Healing</i>, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what’s going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality. It’s an approach unlike any other, and as his millions of fans and followers will tell you, it’s the approach that gets results.</p>

<b>“Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies<br /><br />A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this <b><b><b><i>New York Times</i> Science bestseller</b></b></b></b><br /> <br />Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In <i>The Body Keeps the Score</i>, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, <i>The Body Keeps the Score </i>exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Now, in this revolutionary book, he opens the door to all he has learned in over 25 years of bringing people’s lives back: a massive amount of healing information, much of which science won’t discover for decades, and most of which has never appeared anywhere before.</p><p><i>Medical Medium</i> reveals the root causes of diseases and conditions that medical communities either misunderstand or struggle to understand at all. It explores all-natural solutions for dozens of the illnesses that plague us, including Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, hormonal imbalances, Hashimoto’s disease, multiple sclerosis, depression, neurological conditions, chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease, blood sugar imbalances, colitis and other digestive disorders, and more. It also offers solutions for restoring the soul and spirit after illness has torn at our emotional fabric. Whether you’ve been given a diagnosis you don’t understand, or you have symptoms you don’t know how to name, or someone you love is sick, or you want to care for your own patients better, <i>Medical Medium</i> offers the answers you need. It’s also a guidebook for everyone seeking the secrets to living longer, healthier lives.</p><p>“The truth about the world, ourselves, life, purpose—it all comes down to healing,” Anthony William writes. “And the truth about healing is now in your hands.”</p>

<p>Highly sensitive people—or <i>empaths</i>—see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. They were born that way. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they’re also the favored prey of “vampires” who feed off empaths’ energy and disrupt their lives on every level—physical, emotional, and financial.</p><p>In <i>Dodging Energy Vampires</i>, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our <i>own</i> energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in <i>your</i> life too.</p><p>In these pages, Dr. Northrup opens up a toolbox full of techniques you can use to leave these harmful relationships behind; heal from the darkness they’ve cast over your mind, body, and spirit; and let your own light shine. In the end, you may find yourself healthier, happier, wealthier, and more vibrant than you ever believed possible.</p>
