Heal yourself from the inside out Our immune systems can no longer be taken for granted. Current trends in public healthcare are disturbing: our increased air travel allows newly mutated bacteria and viruses to spread across the globe, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria outstrip the new drugs that are meant to fight them, deaths due to hospital-acquired infections are increasing, and the childhood vaccinations of our aging population are losing their effectiveness. Now more than ever, our well-being is at a dangerous crossroad. But there is hope, and the solution lies within ourselves. The Healing Self is the new breakthrough book in self-care by bestselling author and leader in integrative medicine Deepak Chopra and Harvard neuroscientist Rudolph E Tanzi. They argue that the brain possesses its own lymphatic system, meaning it is also tied into the body's general immune system. Based on this brand new discovery, they offer new ways of increasing the body's immune system by stimulating the brain and our genes, and through this they help us fight off illness and disease. Combined with new facts about the gut microbiome and lifestyle changes, diet and stress reduction, there is no doubt that this ground-breaking work will have an important effect on your immune system.

A Groundbreaking Guide to the HPV Vaccine and the Science, Safety, and Business Behind It Cancer strikes fear in people's hearts around globe. So the appearance of a vaccine to prevent cancer-as we are assured the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine will-seemed like a game-changer. Since 2006, over eighty countries have approved the vaccine, with glowing endorsements from the world's foremost medical authorities. Bringing in over $2.5 billion in annual sales, the HPV vaccine is a pharmaceutical juggernaut. Yet scandal now engulfs it worldwide. The HPV Vaccine on Trial is a shocking tale, chronicling the global efforts to sell and compel this alleged miracle. The book opens with the vaccine's invention, winds through its regulatory labyrinths, details the crushing denial and dismissal of reported harms and deaths, and uncovers the enormous profits pharma and inventors have reaped. Authors Holland, Mack Rosenberg, and Iorio drill down into the clinical trial data, government approvals, advertising, and personal accounts of egregious injuries that have followed in countries as far-flung as Japan, Australia, Colombia, India, Ireland, the U.K. and Denmark. The authors have written an unprecedented expose about this vaunted vaccine. Written in plain language, the book is for everyone concerned - parents, patients, doctors, nurses, scientists, healthcare organizations, government officials, and schools. Ultimately, this book is not just about the HPV vaccine, but about how industry, government, and medical authorities may be putting the world's children in harm's way.
As featured on CBS This Morning, The Dr. Oz Show, and Lifehacker. A comprehensive, light-hearted resource for the hypochondriac in all of us, from two Columbia University doctors who review dozens of symptoms and offer advice on when to chill out, make a doctor's appointment, or go to the hospital. Cardiologists at Columbia University Medical Center, Christopher Kelly, MD, and Marc Eisenberg, MD, FACC, are both highly accomplished physicians and health experts. Though they treat people of all ages with diverse health concerns, the one question most patients really want to know is, "Am I dying?!" Most new symptoms turn out to be minor. Most likely, that stuffy nose isn't a sign of cancer. But sometimes a headache isn't just a temporary nuisance; it could be a sign of a serious condition. None of us wants to ignore a problem that could harm our health or even cause death. Though the internet offers a wealth of data, it can also be a source of harmful misinformation. So if you have a new symptom, how worried should you be? In Am I Dying?!, Dr. Kelly and Dr. Eisenberg walk you through the most common symptoms-from back pain, bloating, chest pain, constipation, and forgetfulness to fatigue, rashes, shortness of breath, and weakness- and provide helpful, conversational guidance on what to do. Organized in a humorous, easy-to-access format and packed with practical information and expert advice, Am I Dying?! is an essential resource every household needs.

'Siobhan manages to completely demystify hypnobirthing, making it accessible and relevant to all women and all births. This book will be a complete game changer and I will be recommending it to mums-to-be from now on' Sarah Turner, author of The Unmumsy Mum Expert hypnobirthing teacher and founder of The Positive Birth Company Siobhan Miller has made it her mission to change the way women around the world approach and experience birth.

Siobhan's advice and guidance will change your mindset and enable you to navigate your birth with practical tools that ensure you feel calm and in control throughout. By the time you finish this book you'll feel relaxed, capable and genuinely excited about giving birth.

Diabetes used to be rare and clear. One boy in the school had Type 1 and a friend of a friend's granny had Type 2. We now see adults being diagnosed with Type 1 and children developing Type 2. There are over 400 million diabetics world-wide - four times as many as in 1980. The vast majority of these have Type 2 - sometimes judged as a `lifestyle' disease. The traditional view of diabetes is that is it a "chronic and progressive" condition and that nothing can be done about it. Serious complications include loss of eyesight, amputations and death. This book has gathered together some of the finest minds working in the field of diabetes and diet. The result is a collection of chapters by thought leaders, academics and doctors addressing the big issues. What is diabetes? What are the different types? What causes it? Who gets it? Why do we eat so much carbohydrate? Why do diabetics die of heart disease? Why do athletes commonly get Type 2 diabetes? The writers in this book approach diabetes from many different angles, but they all share one common belief: Diabetes does not need to be "chronic and progressive." Both Type 1 and Type 2 can be substantially alleviated and the latter can be `put into remission.' Let us tell you how...
