With the clarity of a physicist and the compassion of a gifted healer with fifteen years of professional experience observing 5,000 clients and students, Barbara Ann Brennan presents the first in-depth study of the human energy field for people who seek happiness, health and their full potential. <br /><br />Our physical bodies exist within a larger "body," a human energy field or aura, which is the vehicle through which we create our experience of reality, including health and illness. It is through this energy field that we have the power to heal ourselves. <br /><br />This energy body -- only recently verified by scientists, but long known to healers and mystics -- is the starting point of all illness. Here, our most powerful and profound human interactions take place, the precursor and healer of all physiological and emotional disturbances. <br /><br /><i>Hands of Light</i> is your guide to a new wholeness. It offers:<br /><br />• A new paradigm for the human, in health, relationship, and disease<br />• An understanding of how the human energy field looks, functions, is disturbed, healed, and interacts with friends and lovers.<br />• Training in the ability to see and interpret auras<br />• Medically verified case studies of healing people from all walks of life with a variety of illnesses.<br />• Guidelines for healing the self and others.<br />• The author's personal and intriguing life adventure which gives us a model for growth, courage and possibilities for expanded consciousness

#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). <span>Playboy interviewed Stephanie (don't worry, no photos!) about her success (May 2019). Bikinis shots are revealed in the summer edition of First for Women Magazine (June 2019), in the article which discusses intermittent fasting.</span><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 /><div>*Have a long-term plan for healthy, sustainable weight loss </div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>There are plenty of fat bomb cookbooks out on the market, and this is NOT one of them! Let Stephanie be your inspiration and support for starting a keto-inspired diet. She keeps it simple and honest, but provides enough direction for you to make this happen on your OWN terms.</div><div> </div><div></div><div>Weight loss is possible. DIRTY, LAZY, KETO works!</div>

<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>

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.
