Well, consider the study that checked out the back muscles of spinal stenosis patients with an EMG - and found that 17 out of 22 of them had abnormalities! Apparently there are other factors involved that might determine if one will have pain or not. Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis will answer these kinds of questions and more. It will teach you what spinal stenosis is and how it got there. Then, you will learn what you can do about it by putting your spine through a series of "Tune-Ups."

Unlocking Frozen Shoulder

Author: Lynn Varcin
Publisher: BalboaPress
ISBN: 9781452510736
Release Date: 2013-10-03
Genre: Health & Fitness

Frozen shoulder—capsulitis, adhesive capsulitis, and primary frozen shoulder—is an agonizing and debilitating condition that causes excruciating pain, increasing stiffness and movement loss in one or both shoulders. Typically, the condition takes two to three years to resolve, even with costly interventions. The exact causes of frozen shoulder are medically unknown, and most sufferers find recovery to be a long, drawn-out painful process. In Unlocking Frozen Shoulder, physiotherapist and healer Lynn Varcin considers a new paradigm of treatment, including self-healing the emotional links to minimize certain hormone levels. Lynn takes on the science, and challenges current practice with a simple system that shows us how best to assist ourselves from within. Lynn proposes that being rejected or hiding a severe emotional situation will contribute to the altered hormonal states underlying primary frozen shoulder. New exercises and self-healing strategies based on stabilizing hormonal balances are explained.

The Bulletproof Diet

Author: Dave Asprey

Release Date: 2014-12-02
Genre: Health & Fitness

In his mid-twenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week. When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing, and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? The Bulletproof Diet, an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance. The Bulletproof Diet will challenge—and change—the way you think about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat high levels of healthy saturated fat, work out and sleep less, and add smart supplements. In doing so, you'll gain energy, build lean muscle, and watch the pounds melt off. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey went from being overweight and sick in his twenties to maintaining a 100-pound weight loss, increasing his IQ, and feeling better than ever in his forties. The Bulletproof Diet is your blueprint to a better life.
