Genre: Health & Fitness

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. It enjoys an amazing range of motion; it can rotate 360 degrees and can extend upward, sideways, across the body, outward, inward, every which way. That makes it the most useful joint we have, and, not surprisingly, we use it the most. Lifting, pushing, pulling, throwing, catching, hugging: the shoulder experiences more motion than any other joint. So it is perhaps not surprising that, sooner or later, it becomes overtaxed—fatigued. After all, as with anything, if you keep applying the same pressure over and over, the strength and stability of the structure being pressured will wear down. That’s what happens to the shoulder, and when it does, it’s not only painful; it can also stop you in your tracks, limiting your ability to do even simple things you’re used to doing. The truth is that if you’ve never felt any kind of shoulder pain whatsoever, the chances are good that as you grow older, you will. Our bodies tend to lose muscle and bone mass as we age, and we become more susceptible to the aches and pains that may result. But neither the weakness nor the pain is inevitable. The shoulder can be fixed, and the pain can go away. First, there’s a fix that cures the weakness and ends the pain. But there are also things you can do to prevent injury or strain in the first place, so that you never have to lose the strength, stability, and range of motion of the shoulder at all. Fix My Shoulder explores the anatomy and function of the shoulder, methods of preventing pain and injury, and treatments for healing that anyone can implement for better shoulder health and function.

Spinal stenosis usually brings to mind images of bone spurs, pinched nerves, a wornout spine and pain.

Clearly radiographic pictures of one's spine do not tell the whole tale, as there are many people that are able to live pain-free with spinal stenosis. But if having a horrible looking spine on an MRI doesn't necessarily mean you'll have pain, then what does? 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."

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.

Genre: Health & Fitness

Do you suffer from chronic pain? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, more than 100 million Americans deal with this life-changing issue every day. And if you’re like most of them, you’ve tried all the normal "solutions": doctors, injections, medications, and surgeries. While these all have a place in healing, they have fallen short in dealing with the pain epidemic. So what can you do? In The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, Nick Ortner presents a startling alternative. He lays out a step-by-step plan that teaches you how to use tapping, or EFT (emotional freedom techniques), to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Looking at the scientific research surrounding pain, stress, and tapping, he opens your eyes to just how powerful tapping can be, and then outlines tips and techniques to address pain in both the short and long term. Nick guides you on a journey that begins on the surface – tapping to address the pain itself – and moves to the deeper issues that often affect pain. With easy-to-follow tapping scripts and exercises, Nick helps you heal the emotional pain and underlying beliefs that often keep people stuck. He also addresses topics that you may not think of as associated with chronic pain, such as: • Creating personal boundaries • Dealing with toxic relationships • Clearing resistance to change • Understanding the power of a diagnosis • Working through anger There are many ways the brain and body can create, increase, and prolong pain. After reading this book, you’ll not only understand what’s causing your pain but also how to achieve complete and lasting relief. But let’s face it; this is about more than just pain relief. It’s about empowering yourself to take back your body in order to live the life you want.
