The Pain Cure Rx

Author: Mitchell Yass, Dr.
Publisher: Hay House, Inc
ISBN: 9781401948214
Release Date: 2015-06-02
Genre: Health & Fitness

Are you struggling with chronic pain? You’re not alone: an estimated one billion of us across the globe suffer chronic pain every day. And what Dr. Mitchell Yass has found over his 20-year career is that many of us suffer needlessly. While the current medical model for treating pain isn’t helping, there is hope. The Pain Cure Rx presents an alternative model of treatment – the Yass Method – that can resolve pain quickly and effectively without surgery or medication. In the medical community today, most chronic pain is attributed to a structural problem, such as a herniated disc, a meniscal tear, or arthritis. But Dr. Yass has found that in about 90 percent of cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance – a condition that’s easy to treat on your own. The Yass Method, developed through his work with more than 14,000 patients, focuses on finding the true source of the pain and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief. Dr. Yass looks at the most common areas where people experience pain; lays out simple tests that examine things like range of motion, walking patterns, and posture; and teaches you to use this information, rather than invalid diagnostic tests, to determine whether your pain is muscular or structural. If it is structural, you can choose surgery, knowing that the outcome will likely be good. But if the pain is muscular, you can use the easy, step-by-step exercises and routines Dr. Yass offers to get the pain resolution you’re searching for. Many of the people Dr. Yass has treated came to him as a last resort before surgery or as a follow-up after surgery that didn’t resolve their pain. Many of them had been told that they would have to manage their pain with drugs for the rest of their lives, or, worse, that there was nothing left to try; they would simply have to live with the pain. This revolutionary book shows that, in most cases, this simply isn’t true – and empowers you to create a pain-free life.

Jesus Was an Airborne Ranger

Publisher: Multnomah
ISBN: 9781601426932
Release Date: 2015-04-21
Genre: Religion

The Raid that Rescued Us. The Mission that Defines Our Lives. You are trapped behind enemy lines. You feel it every day. Powerful forces want to destroy you and those you love. Completely surrounded, you see no means to escape. Sadly, the Jesus we often picture is too timid to help—more like a daytime talk show host than a dangerous Rescuer. Who would follow—much less risk everything—for such a leader? Get ready to see Jesus like you’ve never seen him before—a battle-scarred Combatant who stared death in the face and won. This is no Sunday-school Jesus, meek and mild. This is the Warrior Christ who has descended from the heavens, defeated the Enemy, and rescued humanity. Now, he calls us to continue his mission and fight for others—our families, our communities, and the world. In Jesus Was an Airborne Ranger, Army Chaplain John McDougall offers an alternative to the soft, gentle caricature of Jesus. Only the Warrior Christ can impact our broken world. And only in following him can you find the life of purpose you’ve always wanted. SUIT UP. It’s time to enter the fight with the first and greatest Airborne Ranger.

Release Date: 2012-06-26
Genre: Health & Fitness

Save time on your workouts and look better than ever! Unlike traditional dumbbells, the kettlebell's center of mass is extended beyond the hand. Because more muscle groups are utilized in the swinging and movement of a kettlebell than during the lifting of dumbbells, a kettlebell workout is more effective, and yields better results in less time. The momentum generated by the kettlebell also reduces stress on the joints and minimizes the chance for injury. While the general public is starting to catch on to the power of the kettlebell, many kettlebell books on the market merely feature exercises for dumbbells, substituting the dumbbells with a kettlebell. This approach fails to maximize the efficacy and fun of the kettlebell as a workout tool. For the first time ever, Body Sculpting with Kettlebells for Women provides a female audience with kettlebell-specific workouts. Body Sculpting with Kettlebells for Women will teach you: •The differences between dumbbells and kettlebells •How the kettlebell's shape enables endless variety of movement patterns •Sport-specific exercises to enhance performance •Uniquely designed exercise programs to benefit all fitness levels •Where to buy kettlebells and which kettlebells are best for your fitness level •Basic nutritional guidelines for a more effective workout With easy to follow instructions, clear photographs, and extensive information on the kettlebell, Body Sculpting with Kettlebells for Women provides a comprehensive guide to this unique fitness tool, making these powerful workouts accessible to people of all fitness levels. Created by U.S.A.'s first International Master of Kettlebell Sport, Lorna Kleidman, this guide is sure to bring one of the most effective workouts to date.
