The best adaptogens to reduce stress and improve health, beauty and wellness.

'This is the herbal guide book for modern life - with easy recipes, practical tips and pearls of wisdom - it's the perfect companion to help you use powerful herbs in a modern way.' Anabel Kindersley, co-founder of Neal's Yard Remedies

Turmeric, matcha, bee pollen, ashwagandha, astragalus. Often called 'nature's miracles', superherbs, or adaptogens, help the body adapt to the stresses of life, whether emotional, environmental or immune related. We've all been informed about superfoods and the nutrients they pack, but superherbs do more than deliver vitamins and nutrition ­- they help to improve overall health to bring the body back to equilibrium.

Featuring twenty of the most easy-to-source and use adaptogens, Superherbs will teach you the history of these ancient herbs, how each can help us in mind, body, beauty and spirit, and ten ways that we can incorporate them into our lives including recipes, teas, tonics, and DIY beauty regimes.

Superherbs will help you find the best ways to de-stress, relieve anxiety, reduce inflammation and so much more, all in a healthy, natural way.

Authors:
Rosie Saunt, Helen West

The ultimate myth-busting nutrition bible.Registered dieticians and qualified nutritionists Rosie Saunt and Helen West are the founders of The Rooted Project, set up to translate the latest research direct to your plate, and make evidence-based nutrition accessible and engaging.In this book, they explore everything from the danger of anecdotal evidence and unsubstantiated 'facts' about food to the real science behind the nutrients we consume every day. They explain why there's nothing to be feared from fat or carbs, or - for the vast majority of us - the much-maligned gluten, as well as probing the murky depths of the diet industry to explore the latest links between diet culture and weight stigma. They take a deep-dive into gut health, look at the emerging science of the connection between food and mood and examine differences between allergies and intolerances.This book is both a reference guide and a narrative to relish: it debunks the myths that dominate the food and wellness industry and offers the right tools and knowledge to allow readers to take control of their own health. Evidence-based, body positive and practical, Is Butter a Carb? is the modern must-have nutrition book for everybody interested in food, health and pop science.

Breathe

Mary Birch
Authors:
Mary Birch

Get back to basics and transform your life with this simple four-week, step-by-step breathing retraining program.In her years of teaching breathing retraining, Mary Birch has found that the majority of her clients experiencing symptoms of panic, anxiety and stress are overbreathing, sometimes significantly. Generally, they are not aware that they are overbreathing, or that this is linked to symptoms. Reducing breathing to the normal level has an enormous impact on reducing stress, anxiety, and panic and restoring a sense of calm.Most people will begin to feel an improvement in their symptoms within a week of implementing the strategies contained in this book, sometimes even within a few days. But Mary recommends a minimum four-week breathing retraining program for a reason: the body has to adjust to the new and improved breathing pattern, and this needs to become automatic, so that you do not revert to a disordered breathing pattern and chronic overbreathing in times of stress.Part 1 of this book provides an explanation of the link between overbreathing and stress, anxiety and panic symptoms. Part 2 contains a four-week program with weekly guidelines to help people experiencing these issues to improve their breathing pattern and gain long-term relief.If you struggle with symptoms of panic, stress or anxiety, this book could help change your life in a matter of weeks.

The Part-time Vegan

Sarah Flower
Authors:
Sarah Flower

Many people are intrigued by the current trend for veganism. This book is for all those who want to 'have a go' - whether it's simply to improve their diet or lighten the load on the planet - but who don't have the time or the inclination to follow a vegan diet full time. There are numerous glossy vegan cookbooks (and authors) extolling the benefits of everything from making nut milks to replicating the taste of cheese. This book is different. The recipes in The Part-time Vegan are straightforward, feature readily available ingredients and are, of course, delicious, because they are based on the best simple, natural flavours that nature has to offer. As well as providing recipes for midweek and weekend breakfasts, lunches and main meals, the book covers why being a part-time vegan is a great approach to health - when we balance vegan recipes with high-quality sources non-processed meat, fish and dairy. After all, variety is key to a healthy diet.

Nourishing Diets

Sally Fallon Morell
Authors:
Sally Fallon Morell

The Paleo craze has taken over the world. It asks curious dieters to look back to their ancestors' eating habits to discover a "new" way to eat that shuns grains, most dairy, and processed foods. But, while diet books with Paleo in the title sell well--are they correct? Were paleolithic and ancestral diets really grain-free, low-carb, and based on all lean meat?In NOURISHING DIETS bestselling author Sally Fallon Morell explores the diets of our primitive ancestors from around the world--from Australian Aborigines to pre-industrialized Europeans. In looking to the past, Fallon Morell debunks common Paleo diet myths and points readers to what they should actually be eating--the key principles of traditional diets from across cultures: nutrient dense animal fats, carefully prepared grains and legumes, organ meats, carbohydrates like yams and cassava, bone broth, salt, and lacto-fermented foods rich in enzymes and beneficial bacteria. NOURISHING DIETS begins with a discussion of the basic principles found in ancestral diets and then takes the reader on a fascinating world tour to explore primitive food practices and beliefs. Each chapter will include recipes that make ancestral principles available to food lovers in modern kitchens.
