"When most people hear the word 'disease', they think of something deadly, uncontrollable and swift--like cancer. But we're facing an epidemic of 'dis-ease'--of Americans simply feeling unwell and unable to embrace the lives they want to lead. They're tired, overweight, and inflamed. They're dealing with ongoing digestive issues and they aren't sleeping well. And many are suffering from regular and sometimes debilitating headaches. This book will help you identify your natural state and make meaningful changes for a strong, pain-free, healthy life"--

Dr. Liu describes how he risked his life under the Communist regime in China to study Qi Gong and meet secretly with a master who lived in a mountain cave above Shanghai. If there is one concept that comes up in all forms of Chinese medicine it is that of Qi, or vital energy. Qi is the very backbone of the Chinese healing arts. It refers to the energy of the universe that is channeled from nature and runs through all of us. To have Qi is to be alive, while to have none is to be dead. Qi Gong relies on the manipulation of this vital energy, and Qi Gong masters can see this energy. This book explores the basics of Qi Gong to create a guide for greater health, the Chinese way.

The bestselling author of The Righteous Mind draws on philosophical wisdom and scientific research to show how the meaningful life is closer than you think The Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations--to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing. Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims--like "do unto others as you would have others do unto you," or "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"--can enrich and even transform our lives.

Perhaps, our processed diet coupled with a highly evolved and increasingly digitalised lifestyle has direct bearing on disrupting our metabolism, which is our weight regulator. Tackling obesity then is not just a calories in-calories-out matter—rather it demands a whole person, integrated approach. If you truly want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to eat more bugs—the trillions of helpful bacteria that live in your gut and play a fundamental role in maintaining a healthy and happy body. In this book, you’ll learn: • how simple dietary changes feed the microbiome and regulate the metabolism; • why detoxifying is a key part of resetting your metabolism; • why understanding the stress-microbiome connection is important; and • how diet can be your best probiotic. The author also explains how exercise and focused breathing can improve gut health and shares tips on how to supercharge your success after weight loss surgery. Join the author as he explores the gut microbiome and its overall effects on health, with a particular focus on obesity and weight.

Burt Konzak has taught martial arts for over 20 years and has used these stories, drawn from sources including the Hagakuri, the Book of Five Rings, and other Japanese classics, to help young people gain emotional and mental strength. Whether or not readers are interested in the martial arts, they will find centuries of wisdom in this fine collection. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Drawing upon astrology, Ayurveda, and dharma type--your personality and spiritual purpose archetype--they developed detailed systems to analyze physical, emotional, and spiritual compatibility between people. This analysis encouraged joyous relationships by revealing the sexual compatibility of a couple, the innate relationship conflicts they face, and their potential for financial success together. In this way, couples were able to distinguish biological attraction from long-term compatibility, lust from love, and soul mates from playmates. Sharing ancient Vedic secrets of sex, love, health, and dharma, Simon Chokoisky explains how to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for the right partner and how to determine if a potential mate is a good match for your unique chemistry. He provides self-tests to determine your dharma type and outlines unique ayurvedic diet, exercise, detox, and lifestyle tips for each type to reclaim your health and vitality and, by doing so, your sexiness. He explores how the dharma types align in relationships to create harmony or disharmony, giving quick and simple insights about which dharma pairings work and which ones need work. Highlighting the skills inherent to each dharma type, he makes suggestions on how to improve day-to-day relationships for personal and financial benefit and to build lifelong romance that grows into a spiritual union. Moving to the bedroom, the author details methods for attracting a mate as well as practical techniques for improving your sex life, including the best time to have sex during the day and month. Showing how knowing who you are will help you find your right mate, and keep away those unsuitable for you, Chokoisky explains how living your dharma helps you flow with nature in a way that makes life and your relationships more fulfilling.
