By Meredith Atwood

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

You Are a Badass for aspiring triathletes: a practical and inspiring guide to getting off the couch and on the trail to race your first--or fiftieth--triathlon

When Meredith Atwood first shared her journey from tired, overworked wife and mom to successful triathlete, her story resonated with women everywhere, online at SwimBikeMom.com and in the first edition of Triathlon for the Every Woman. Now a USAT Level 1 and IRONMAN tri coach, Meredith is back with even more wisdom. In this fully revised edition, Atwood not only shares how she went from the couch to a half Ironman triathlon in just over a year, but also shares the latest expertise from coaches, nutritionists, and athletes on each component of the triathlon: swimming, biking, and running. With compact training plans, the most current nutrition advice, updated resources, and the latest information on long-distance racing, this new edition has all you need to make your triathlon goals a reality.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia (Fourth Edition)

Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand
Authors:
Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand

In the two decades since this book was first published, diagnoses of this disease have exploded. Most patients with fibromyalgia are on as astonishing array of medications--sometimes taking over 10 different medications and supplements a day to treat symptoms ranging from muscle pain and fatigue to hypoglycemia, IBS, and chronic candidiasis--and they still can't control their pain. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia is still the only protocol that actually treats the condition, reduces drug dependency, and offers an actual cure. The fourth edition goes deeper into understanding the disease and the early intervention options that are available. With special attention paid to fatigue and pain management, Dr. St. Armand goes into great detail about the big issues surrounding fibromyalgia today, including:A close look at supplements, including CBS oil--an unregulated market without the same scientific rigor as most medicationsGuaifenesin as a drug that does work, eliminating symptoms and restoring normal life to an astonishing 90 percent of the fibromyalgia sufferersA discussion of pharmaceuticals in treatment, and why "medical Band-Aids" won't treat the disease

Juicing, Fasting And Detoxing For Life

Cherie Calbom, John Calbom
Authors:
Cherie Calbom, John Calbom

More than a simple collection of recipes, this book guides readers toward a lifestyle that promotes alkaline balance by juicing, eating well, and cleansing the body and soul. While most juicing books focus too much on fruit juice (which disrupts the body's pH balance with too much natural sugar), this book primarily focuses on juices, smoothies, and soups made from vegetables. Now, completely revised and upated, it also offers a guide to the food richest in nutrients from Vitamin A to zinc and includes over 20 new juice recipes as well as new versions of various cleanses to benefit the colon, liver, gall bladder, and kidney, lymphatics, and more. Beyond the body, the Calboms explain the heavy toll emotional, mental, and spiritual unrest can take on the body (and sometimes even encourage disease) and share unique, effective methods for cleansing the body of such toxicity.

The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Workbook for Menopause

Sheryl Green
Authors:
Sheryl Green

Although research supports the use of cognitive behavioral therapy to address the symptoms of menopause, this is the first book to explain how readers can use this approach to calm hot flashes, stop mood swings in their tracks, and manage other common physical symptoms. The Cognitive-Behavioral Workbook for Menopause can be used as an adjunctive treatment to hormone replacement therapy and herbal remedies, or may be effectively used on its own. This evidence-based program works by helping readers understand their symptoms and reduce the psychological self-talk that makes physical symptoms of menopause even worse. By reducing the anxiety about menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, readers reduce the duration and intensity of these symptoms. Because menopause can also affect women's mental health, the workbook includes help for menopausal depression, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. It also features information on hormone replacement therapy and supplements that can help. This workbook is an essential resource for any menopausal woman seeking to regain control over her body, health, and mood.

Authors:
Susan Hepburn

Lose weight and feel fabulous with this book and CD from celebrity hypnotherapist Susan Hepburn.HYPNODIET is not a diet. It is a mind-body revolution: a way to change the way you eat, forever. Susan Hepburn's approach works because it removes the guilt and stress of yo-yo dieting. Hypnosis provides a simple yet radical way to lose inches, but more importantly it is a way to gain control of your eating habits and build a healthy relationship with food. With HYPNODIET you put away the scales. There is no calorie counting, no forbidden foods, no faddy menus or deprivation. Instead, using simple hypnotherapy exercises, you will learn to reprogramme your mind. You will quickly start to enjoy food and make healthy choices, reaching and maintaining your target weight without hunger, guilt or stress. The concept of 'mindfulness' is central - it's a highly effective psychological tool which will revolutionise the way you eat. Key elements of the book include learning how to put yourself in a state of deep relaxation: guided meditations and visualisations (on accompanying CD) to enable you to 'delete' the negative emotional associations you have with food and replace these with positive ones; inspiring case studies; hints and tips.
