The Mouth-Body Connection

Gerald P. Curatola D.D.S.
Authors:
Gerald P. Curatola D.D.S.

The mouth acts as mirror and a gateway to the body. Not only is oral health an early warning system, but it is also an agent provocateur. In its role as a mirror, the mouth reflects what is happening systemically. Many conditions, including leukemia, ulcerative colitis, and diabetes, can manifest in the mouth before a person experiences other symptoms. Current research has found that the health of the mouth appears to have a profound impact on the rest of the body. Even low-grade gum disease has been associated with serious systemic problems, including cardiovascular disease. Chronic oral disease, which may persist undetected for years, is a major source of low-grade inflammation in the entire body. From hijacking the immune system to health-destroying inflammation, an unbalanced oral microbiome can affect the mouth and overall health. One of Dr. Curatola's groundbreaking themes is that anti-microbial toothpastes and mouthwashes cause an ecological catastrophe in the mouth. Oral care, that "kills germs on contact," popularized in the '70s, renders the oral microbiome ineffective in its protective role and creates a climate in the mouth in which pathogens thrive and move on to affect other parts of the body. In THE MOUTH-BODY CONNECTION, Dr. Curatola presents his three-stage program-Rethink, Restore, Renew-- for fostering a healthy oral microbiome and bringing the body into balance by means of diet, supplements, exercise, and stress reduction. The program is designed to help change habits that undermine health and to replace them with a way of life that keeps microbial communities balanced to support well-being.

The Nordic Guide to Living 10 Years Longer

Dr. Bertil Marklund
Authors:
Dr. Bertil Marklund

Healthy living guides are all the rage (not to mention all things Scandi), but they can be too prescriptive or long. Who has time to read 300 pages or the discipline for a total lifestyle change overnight? Cue The Nordic Guide to Living 10 Years Longer. Dr Bertil Marklund - a doctor and researcher at the Gothenburg University with over 40 years of experience - provides the most cutting-edge research to explain the 10 areas he feels we should focus on to better our chances of a long life: Exercise, Time to Recharge, Sleep, Sunbathing, Food, Drink, Weight, Teeth, Attitude and Relationships. This guide provides wisdom from the Nordics, a region long known for its healthy and progressive lifestyle. It debunks myths on things we have been told are not good for us but actually can be, for example, did you know drinking lots of coffee will promote your health? Or that more people die of lack of Vitamin D than they do of skin cancer? The Danes may have their Hygge and the Norwegians their back to the land books, but the Swedes have a 'sundhet', more or less translated to 'soundness', a balanced, even keeled approach to a life of moderation. In general, Swedes are very healthy when it comes to food and exercise, and part of the key to this 'soundness' is that nothing is done at its extreme. Everything is incorporated over time and in steps into work and family life so as to make it manageable and sustainable.

The Cut

Morris Chestnut, Obi Obadike
Authors:
Morris Chestnut, Obi Obadike

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote his latest blockbuster movie The Best Man Holiday, hosts and producers didn't want to hear about the movie as much as they wanted to talk about his incredible transformation into a buff, Hollywood sex symbol. The truth is that not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life--30 pounds heavier than he should have been, avoiding the gym, and frequenting the drive-through. He turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie, and the results were astounding. Morris went from 220-pounds to a ripped 187-pounds in just 12 weeks, and audiences haven't stopped raving about his new look--or asking how he achieved it!Now Morris and Obi are teaming up to share this groundbreaking and accessible program with fans nationwide. Backed by the latest cutting-edge nutrition science and featuring Obi's trademark fat-burning exercise program, THE CUT is designed to help readers drop pounds quickly - up to 10 pounds in 10 days and 40 pounds in 12 weeks- without stalling on the scale. Featuring Morris's personal exercise and diet plan as well as success stories from dozens of everyday people who have lost weight and kept it off, this book is a life-changer that will help readers reclaim their bodies and their lives, for good.

Uniquely the book will be published with 99 different covers, a selection of which can be seen here. Your cover will therefore be a surprise and we really hope that you like the one that you receive.Just over 1,000 days ago, Bill Griffin launched Crowdwish, a website and app with a single proposition - it simply asked people what three things they thought they wanted most. Wishes poured in from all over the world, with the site promising to take some form of meaningful action for the most up-voted wish every twenty-four hours. Wishes that have gained national press attention range from the assisting of a woman who wanted to find a half-decent boyfriend ('just not a dick basically'), duping Katie Hopkins into signing a gagging order and attaching a faux marble plinth to the offices of the Daily Mail.The Wish reviews 99 of the site's most popular wishes, and asks: what are the things we really want, how can we get closer to them and how much happier would we be if they were to come true? The result is a snapshot of the hopes, dreams and desires that unite us all, part reflection on a fascinating social experiment, part humorous rumination on the nature of happiness and part instruction manual for life.The Wish is funny, upbeat and genuinely helpful - each reader is invited to pick one wish from the book that resonates most with them, and email the author for help in making it happen.

Kimberley Welman, Victoria Reihana

Exhausted. Frazzled. Worn out. This is how Kimberley Welman felt after giving birth to three babies, including twins, within 19 months. Once a marathon runner, Kimberley could barely jog around the block without wanting to keel over, but she knew she had to do something. Her health and sanity were at stake.With no clear sense of where to begin, Kimberley tried CrossFit (expensive), classes at her gym (hard to get to), running (too hard on her recovering body). Months later, she finally found a training partner in fellow mother Victoria Reihana, and discovered the joys of clean eating and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). What began as one mother's mission to get her body back, has become a global movement and ever-expanding online community, full of women (with and without children) motivating one another to live healthier lives. Featuring recipes, exercise routines and inspirational advice, The Stay Strong Mummy Fitness Plan will fill the mother-shaped hole in the current fitness landscape.

Mindfulness for Health

Vidyamala Burch, Danny Penman
Authors:
Vidyamala Burch, Danny Penman

Pain, suffering and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn't have to be this way.Mindfulness for Health reveals a series of simple practices that you can incorporate into your daily life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical trials show that mindfulness is at least as effective as the most commonly prescribed painkillers such as Tramadol and codeine. A recent study published in the Journal of Neuroscience demonstrated that it is more effective than morphine. Mindfulness can also significantly reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness.This new book shares the secrets of the Mindfulness-based approaches to pain and illness therapy, developed by Vidyamala Burch at the Breathworks centre in Manchester and which has its roots in the groundbreaking work of pioneer Jon Kabat-Zinn from the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in the US. The Breathworks Centre and its affiliates around the world have helped thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Its pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Professor Lance McCracken of King's College London.The eight-week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. It is particularly effective for the biggest causes of pain - back problems, arthritis, migraine and diabetes but works equally well for cancer (and its associated chemotherapy), heart disease, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, labour pain and even tinnitus. You will be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving you able to live life to the full again.
