Leading medical authority Dr. Neal D. Barnard provides readers with a way to use food to protect against chronic and terminal health problems caused by the excess hormones that are lurking in our diets. Cancer, heart disease, infertility, and diabetes are just a few common health problems plaguing Americans. On some level, these diseases can be considered genetic, or just a stroke of bad luck. But Dr. Neal D. Barnard points to a hidden culprit: Hormones hiding in our foods, making us sick, tired, and uncomfortable. Common foods high in hormones are having a dramatic influence on our overall health, from something as minor as menstrual cramps to serious terminal illness. But it is possible to restore the hormonal balance of the body through strategic eating, and alleviating many of the most pernicious symptoms simply by changing the way we eat. Your Body in Balance is loaded with prescriptive advice for developing healthier habits and low-fat, vegan, hormone-balancing recipes to regain that control and reverse the damage. Most importantly, it promises a hopeful future of a less pain, lower weight,, and better overall health.

Focusing on practice more than theory, this collection offers new perspectives for studying the so-called "humoral medical traditions," as they have flourished around the globe during the last 2,000 years. Exploring notions of "balance" in medical cultures across Eurasia, Africa and the Americas, from antiquity to the present, the volume revisits "harmony" and "holism" as main characteristics of those traditions. It foregrounds a dynamic notion of balance and asks how balance is defined or conceptualized, by whom, for whom and in what circumstances. Balance need not connoteegalitarianism or equilibrium. Rather, it alludes to morals of self care exercised in place of excessiveness and indulgences after long periods of a life in dearth. As the moral becomes visceral, the question arises: what constitutes the visceral in a body that is in constant flux and flow? How far, and in what ways, are there fundamental properties or constituents in those bodies?

Unlock connection with your body and harness the power of self-healing. A fifth-generation practitioner of medical qigong, Master FaXiang Hou has dedicated a lifetime of study to women’s health. Qigong is the traditional Chinese practice of low-impact body movement based on the ancient theory that the beneficial flow of energy—or “qi”—through the body restores vitality and regulates the functions of the mind, body, and breath. Drawing on centuries-old knowledge, the practice protects against disease and other complications that arise when the meridians through which energy flows are blocked. Qigong has had spectacular results in patients, eliminating the need for medication and surgery that Western doctors often recommend for concerns that are simply part of the natural stages of a woman’s life. This guide contains qigong exercises with photo instructions, as well as mindful breathing techniques, acupressure, herbal remedies, a seasonal fasting plan, and 50 delicious healing recipes, including Ma Po Tofu and Lotus Root and Asian Pear Stir-Fry. Master Hou teaches women at any stage in their lives how to manage their internal energy, awaken their own powers of self-healing, and gain insight into the deep connections within their bodies. Women seeking in natural solutions to sleeping soundly, strengthening the immune system, thriving during childbearing years, taking menopause in stride, and achieving overall wellness in their lives will find answers here.

Latest Release and Updates to Body in Balance: September 15,2015 In this release and update on the "Naked Truth" We are making real progress and many readers have written to me to let me know they have taken action. As a result, they report feeling better and performing better after following the healthy steps outlined in my book. That's great news! However, more work is still needed- our public health policies as they relate to pesticides, GMOs, sweetners and sweet deals with corporate control over food at the federal, state, local government and university levels needs to change. Big Food and the deceptive marketing to kids continues and it is time that we take back the right to know what is in our food to get our bodies and our nation's health back in balance. Therefore, my work continues with updates on these topics and more resources in this new edition of Body in Balance. Enjoy! Background: The American diet couldn't be a better breeding ground if we intentionally designed it to grow cancer, heart disease and stroke as well as to fast-track diabetes. Our poor diets and the acidic environment they create for our blood encourage these illnesses and we could not have made a better experiment (our diet) if we designed it for that research purpose. But this isn't an experiment. This is your health and your vitality is slipping away every time you try to treat another symptom with yet another pill. Each of those little aches, pains, and subtle low-grade annoyances are "warning signals" that an imbalance or deficiency exists somewhere in your biochemistry, oftentimes years before it surfaces as a diagnosable condition. The first place to look for clues is your diet. Currently the standard American diet (or "SAD" as it is rightfully known by) has degenerated to the point where 62% of calories are from refined foods and about 26% come from animal products. Of that mere 10% that remains from unrefined plant food, half of that comes from white potato products, not exactly nutrient-rich. Americans are just not eating for energy, and the numbers to follow couldn't paint a poorer picture for a Nation slipping deeper into a nutrition debt that will eventually bankrupt the US. The diet analysis mentioned is devoid of life and energy but somehow we continue to expect dead packaged foods to sustain life. They simply can't. They only add to a growing balance sheet of debt for our health in cataclysmic proportions. Those that are profiting, in addition to the pharmaceutical companies, are those selling to a "caffeine Nation" with products that aim to "fix" our extreme fatigue epidemic. The real answer begins with what you are putting on your plate. Along with learning what to simply avoid, and adopting a few smart nutrition tweaks and corrective movement suggestions in this book, you will quickly begin to get your body back in balance.

After the publication of Dan Millman's first two books, which have since become classics in the realm of spiritual literature, many readers responded with thanks and questions, saying: "I was inspired by your first two stories — but how do you apply all these lessons in daily life?" Millman's answer came in the form of his third book, aptly titled, No Ordinary Moments. Containing perspectives, principles and specific practices that formed the core of "the peaceful warrior's way" — too much information to convey in a narrative story format as he had done in his first books — so he wrote his first comprehensive "guide to daily life." Structured in five parts — The Peaceful Warrior's Way – Up the Mountain Path – Tools for Transformation – The Battle Within – and The Expanded Life — and containing chapters with titles like Heart of the Warrior's Way… In the Arena of Daily Life … When the Going Gets Tough … Getting Real … Universal Addictions … The Will to Change and many more, the book has guided hundreds of thousands of people. As Millman puts it: Our lives are like a journey up a mountain path. As we climb, we face challenges in relationships and sexuality, money, work and health. We can find abundant information and advice on these subjects. So many of us know what to do, but it remains for us to turn knowing into doing." Dan Millman presents a peaceful warrior's approach to turning intentions into action, challenges into strength, and life experience into wisdom. Based on the premise that by changing ourselves we can change our world, No Ordinary Moments offers simple, practical ways to balance the body, liberate the mind, accept our emotions and open our hearts.
