But we don’t have to suffer any longer. </p><p>In his bestseller <em>Clean</em>, the international leader in the field of integrative medicine revealed how many of these common ailments are the direct result of toxic build-up in our systems accumulated through daily living, and offered solutions for combatting them.

<p><b>"I believe that the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences and in so doing, change our lives. <i>The Emotion Code</i> has already changed many lives around the world, and it is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones."—Tony Robbins</b></p><p>In this newly revised and expanded edition of <i>The Emotion Code</i>, renowned holistic physician and lecturer Dr. Bradley Nelson skillfully lays bare the inner workings of the subconscious mind. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of "trapped emotions"—emotional energies that literally inhabit your body. These trapped emotions can fester in your life and body, creating pain, malfunction, and eventual disease. They can also extract a heavy mental and emotional toll on you, impacting how you think, the choices that you make, and the level of success and abundance you are able to achieve. Perhaps most damaging of all, trapped emotional energies can gather around your heart, cutting off your ability to give and receive love. </p><p> <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of this unseen baggage. Dr. Nelson’s method gives you the tools to identify and release the trapped emotions in your life, eliminating your “emotional baggage,” and opening your heart and body to the positive energies of the world. Filled with real-world examples from many years of clinical practice, <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a distinct and authoritative work that has become a classic on self-healing.</p>

#1 New Release, #1 Best Seller. Stephanie Laska lost 140 pounds, roughly half of her body weight, by following a ketogenic inspired diet. She figured out the secret to losing weight without the crazy restrictions of a traditional keto diet by following a "dirty" and "lazy" version of keto. <br /><br />Stephanie spent most of her adult life in the Morbidly Obese Class III BMI category. Hovering close to 300 pounds, she avoided booths at restaurants and feared not fitting into amusement park rides. “I once hid my jacket over my lap so the flight attendant wouldn’t see that my seatbelt wouldn’t close,” she admits.<br /><br />It wasn’t until a friend suggested she could continue to drink beer while still losing weight that Stephanie decided to “try one last time”. Any diet that included loopholes for having a cold beer might be worth a try, she reflected.<br /><br />Through trial and error, Stephanie learned how eating a low carb, moderate protein, higher fat diet could finally nudge her weight in the right direction. “This is the weirdest diet ever!” went through her mind every time she got on the scale. Coming from an era of eating FruitLoops© washed down with a pitcher of Kool-Aid©, Stephanie was clueless about the metabolic effects of consuming too many carbohydrates. <br /><br />DIRTY, LAZY, KETO explains the unique diet Stephanie followed to achieve her success. Using humor and simple explanations, Stephanie walks the reader through her personal manifesto for weight loss and maintenance, with helpful strategies and food lists to immediately employ.<br /><br />Stephanie has kept her weight off for five years. She left behind a giant dent on the couch to run twelve marathons, two of which earned her a first-place marathon medal. As part of the chosen "Clean Start Team", Stephanie even ran the New York City Marathon in 2017 as a sponsored athlete from PowerBar©. Her story even appeared in the international publication, Muscle and Fitness: HERS, Spring 2018. More recently, Costco Connection shared Stephanie's story in an article about the merits of an anti-inflammatory diet (January 2019). She is also quoted in a Reader's Digest article about foods to avoid while on the keto diet (January 2019). <br /><br />Stephanie's hope is that the reader will leave inspired and armed with enough information to get started on their own journey of personalized weight loss success.<br /><br />Let’s discuss the goals of this down and dirty mini-guide. By the end, the reader will be able to:<br /><br />*Partner with your physician to set realistic goals based on your current health<br />*Understand the difference between a DIRTY, LAZY, KETO diet and a Ketogenic Diet<br />*Accurately read a nutrition label and count the net carbs per serving<br />*Confidently shop for ingredients that you need to be successful<br />*Stock your fridge and pantry with appropriate foods for cooking and snacking<br />*Prepare quick and easy meals, drinks, snacks, and desserts that are on plan<br />*Strategize ways to prevent dehydration<br />*Recognize and stop efforts at self-sabotage<br />*Have a long-term plan for healthy, sustainable weight loss<br />

<p><strong>Why <em>the</em> War on Cancer Has Failed <em>and</em> What That Means <em>for</em> More Effective Prevention <em>and</em> Treatment<br /><br /></strong></p><br /><br /><p><strong>A groundbreaking look at the role of water in living organisms that ultimately brings us closer to answering the riddle of the etiology of, and therapy and treatment for, cancer</strong></p><br /><br /><p>When President Nixon launched the War on Cancer with the signing of the National Cancer Act of 1971 and the allocation of billions of research dollars, it was amidst a flurry of promises that a cure was within reach. The research establishment was trumpeting the discovery of oncogenes, the genes that supposedly cause cancer. As soon as we identified them and treated cancer patients accordingly, cancer would become a thing of the past.</p><br /><br /><p>Fifty years later it’s clear that the War on Cancer has failed—despite what the cancer industry wants us to believe. New diagnoses have continued to climb; one in three people in the United States can now expect to battle cancer during their lifetime. For the majority of common cancers, the search for oncogenes has not changed the treatment: We’re still treating with the same old triad of removing (surgery), burning out (radiation), or poisoning (chemotherapy).</p><br /><br /><p>In <em>Cancer and the New Biology of Water</em>, Thomas Cowan, MD, argues that this failure was inevitable because the oncogene theory is incorrect—or at least incomplete—and based on a flawed concept of biology in which DNA controls our cellular function and therefore our health. Instead, Dr. Cowan tells us, the somatic mutations seen in cancer cells are the result of a cellular deterioration that has little to do with oncogenes, DNA, or even the nucleus. The root cause is metabolic dysfunction that deteriorates the structured water that forms the basis of cytoplasmic—and therefore, cellular—health.</p><br /><br /><p>Despite mainstream medicine’s failure to bring an end to suffering or deliver on its promises, it remains illegal for physicians to prescribe anything other than the “standard of care” for their cancer patients—no matter how dangerous and ineffective that standard may be—and despite the fact that gentler, more effective, and more promising treatments exist. While Dr. Cowan acknowledges that all of these treatments need more research, <em>Cancer and the New Biology of Water</em> is an impassioned plea from a long-time physician that these promising treatments merit our attention and research dollars and that patients have the right to information, options, and medical freedom in matters of their own life and death.</p>
