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.

Dirty Looks

Whitney Bowe
Authors:
Whitney Bowe

Every year, nearly 80 million Americans will consult their doctors about their skin. In fact, skin disorders beat out anxiety, depression, back pain, and diabetes as the number one reason Americans see their doctors. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority will receive only a surface-level treatment, leaving the underlying conditions at the root of their skin issues unresolved. Skin doesn't lie; it reflects overall health in unimaginable ways.Dirty Looks, internationally renowned dermatologist and scientist Dr. Whitney Bowe shows readers that skin health is much more than skin deep. As a pioneering researcher on the cutting edge of the gut-brain-skin axis, she explains how the spectrum of skin disorders -- from stubborn acne and rosacea to psoriasis, eczema, and premature wrinkling -- are manifestations of irregularities rooted in the gut. Lasers, scalpels, creams, and prescription pads alone will not guarantee the consistently healthy, glowing skin we all seek. Instead, Dr. Bowe focuses on the microbiome -- where trillions of microbes "speak" to your skin via the brain -- and highlights the connection between sleep, stress, diet, gastrointestinal health, and the health of your skin. With simple explanations of the science, do-it-yourself practical skincare strategies, and a life-changing 3-week program, Dirty Looks is your roadmap to great skin from the inside out and the outside in.

I watched what I ate. If only I had tried harder, eaten fewer calories and burned more.&rdquo But you're not alone, and it's not your fault. Many traditional diets can actually promoteinsulin resistance over time because they don't take into account your different metabolism. You may be one of the millions who have Metabolism B (metabolic syndrome), an inherited condition that can cause your body to overreact to carbohydrate foods, release excess insulin, and gain body fat- and eventually develop type 2 diabetes. The good news is that you can take control of your diabetes, starting today. When registered dietician Diane Kress herself developed this condition over a decade ago- despite following the ADA-recommended dietary guidelines- she realized that the"status quo&rdquo nutrition plans just don't work for everyone.

With The Diabetes Miracle , you can expect to: type="disc" Correct your body's insulin imbalance naturally and stop the progression from Metabolism B to prediabetes to diabetes &ldquoRest, reset, and retrain&rdquo your pancreas to process carbs and react more normally to blood glucose changes Lose weight and keep it off- especially the love handles and excess back fat Get the best blood sugar readings you have experienced since your diagnosis on the least amount of medication Have more energy, sleep great, look younger, and feel healthier Gain control of type 2 diabetes on an easy, livable programThis diabetes bible provides clear details about the disease itself, the newest parameters for diagnosis, and preventing complications.

Your Primal Body

Mikki Reilly
Authors:
Mikki Reilly

Your Primal Body is a book that will transform how you think about your body. Not just another fitness/weight-loss book, Your Primal Body shifts the paradigm for how to achieve a lean, muscular, vibrantly healthy body according to your genetic inheritance. This is the same body your Stone Age ancestors had, expressed through the human genome that evolved over a period of 2.6 million years. It's the body you too can have when you learn how to follow ancestral dietary and activity habits in your 21st century life.Scientists studying the remains of early humans tell us how our ancestors were in far better shape than we modern humans, their bodies free of disease and painful conditions. Natural adaptation and selection occurred over millions of years when they lived in caves, hunted wild game, and foraged for plants and berries to survive-a way of life very different than ours today.But one thing has not changed: our DNA. The human genome has evolved so slowly that our genetic blueprint is almost exactly what it was 40,000 years ago when our ancestors still hunted and gathered their food. Lifestyles may have changed, but our modern bodies are no different in their basic DNA-a startling fact that revolutionizes how we think about and approach diet and exercise. The thesis of Your Primal Body is that we modern humans can follow the diet and activity patterns of our Paleolithic hunter-gatherer ancestors for optimal health and weight-loss. When you do eat and move as they did, you are healthier, more muscular, leaner, and pain-free when you don't, you run into trouble. The "diseases of civilization"-heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, arthritis, to name a few, are all linked by researchers who study health and longevity to sedentary lifestyles and eating habits. Eating highly processed food and performing minimal activity, you become susceptible to the health problems that plague our modern society-none of which our ancestors had.In this book, you will read the argument for switching to a more "primal" way of life and how it is scientifically valid, based in the latest research done by exercise physiologists, evolutionary fitness theorists, and scientists in university labouratories. Your Primal Body goes beyond theory and science to give you a practical plan for implementing primal fitness into your modern lifestyle. In Mikki Reilly's 5 Step Primal Body Program , central to the book, she shares her 20 years of experience in training people from all walks of life about how to lose weight, become fit, stay healthy, and condition their body for athletics. Reilly's clients span a range of ages, from 18 to 74, and the book includes their inspiring stories, along with their "before and after" pictures, placed throughout the text to illustrate the book's points and instructions. Their stories are not fictional composites but actual words of people who got the results they wanted from "going primal," telling exactly how they did it. The Primal Body approach is not a quick-fix, but a complete overhaul in habits that have been stopping people from taking advantage of their natural inheritance, a fit and healthy body for life.
