<h2>Relief for Your Ravaged Body</h2><p>Are you looking for relief from recurring neck and back pain? If you’re tired of masking chronic aches and nagging discomfort with pills and other treatments that offer only short-term relief, <em>The Posture Pain Fix</em> will show you exactly how to relieve your pain, ease your stress and recharge your spirit... for the long term.</p><p><strong>Different Results Require the Right Approach</strong></p><p>Author and physiotherapist Rosalind Ferry tells us in no uncertain terms what that right way is: <em>“Protect your back by making your whole body stronger."</em> This book is about developing new skills and habits from your brain to your body.</p><p>This is not a quick fix…(they usually don’t work, do they?) By adopting the natural, posture-first approach advocated by Ferry you will be far better off in just a few short weeks. But if you fail to adopt these strength and balance-building techniques, you’ll probably still be dealing with the same issues a year from now.</p><p>As Ferry, who specializes in postural realignment, neck and vestibular problems, says: <em>“It’s time you stopped submitting passively to your physical limitations and took action -- removing crutches and learning how to regain your balance, mobility and lower body connection while alleviating the habit of too much upper body work.”</em></p><p><strong><em>The Posture Pain Fix</em> offers easy to follow instructions on how to:</strong></p><ul><li><p>Re-balance, renew and relax your body</p></li><li><p>Pinpoint those faulty posture positions that wreak havoc on your health</p></li><li><p>Sit properly even if your job involves long hours at a computer</p></li><li><p>Perform common daily activities ranging from carrying a baby to driving a car or shoveling snow</p></li><li><p>Look after your body better in everyday situations</p></li><li><p>Do stretches and exercises designed to improve your posture</p></li></ul><p>These easy-to-follow techniques have worked on scores of pain-sufferers over the years... and helped them feel young again. This carefully crafted and cleverly illustrated book points the way to recapture the joy of fluid, pain-free movement.</p><p><strong>What readers are saying about <em>The Posture Pain Fix</em>:</strong></p><p><em>“Ferry empowers readers to take charge of their own bodies and their own health.”</em></p><p><em>“I keep a copy of the person demonstrating correct posture in front of a computer... to remind me to sit up straight.”</em></p><p><em>“Simple explanations with clear illustrations to show exactly what the problems are and how to fix them.”</em></p><p><em>“This book is now my quick reference guide to pain free living."</em></p><p><strong>Scroll up and order your copy of <em>The Posture Pain Fix</em> or use Amazon’s ‘Look Inside’ feature to read the first part of the book.</strong></p>

<b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b> <br /> Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. <br /> Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

Authors have been selected from imaging experts in the most medically advanced areas of the world, heavily weighted by experts in the US and Europe to produce the quintessential reference in this topic.
