The “Gene Therapy Plan: Taking Control of Your Genetic Destiny with Diet and Lifestyle” by Dr. Michael L. Gaynor, M.D., is an excellent book that suggests not only how to stay healthy but what alternate plans to consider when you are sick and are not responding to your prescribed treatment.
The introduction to his book is written by Dr. Oz who has sent many of his patients to Dr. Gaynor for treatment as has many other physicians when their treatment plan is not working.
Dr. Gaynor, takes an integrative approach to medicine and offers very good advice on foods, drinks and natural substances to take advantage of to remain healthy, such as olive oil, coconut milk and oils, green tea, chamomile tea, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, juicing, etc.
But his plan goes far beyond eating foods that are healthy but seeks to harness the power hidden in foods to change our genetic predisposition for disease. In this approach Dr. Gaynor draws heavily on a branch of study known as ecogenetics.
Dr. Gaynor, discusses in terms we can understands how ecogenetic food changes our genetic blueprint and provides scientific data to support alternative therapies and age-old practices, The key approach is to use identified nutrients to
What do you think would happen if most people spent as much time planning their retirement and investments each year as they spend watching football? I suspect we would all have a lot more money, be better prepared for retirement, and maybe even be able to afford tickets to the Super Bowl every year.
Steve Roberts, with nearly twenty years of experience in the financial industry, knows that most people – including himself – would rather play or watch football than the stock market. After all, Steve himself was a three – sport letterman in high school, lettering in football, basketball, and baseball. He was a member of Ricks Junior College football team, and today he coaches youth football. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t value financial planning and realize its importance. What it does mean is he had the brilliant idea to write a book about financial planning using football metaphors to make the topic not only more interesting but easier to understand for his many readers.
Steve breaks down his new book, “Football Financial Planning,” into three sections: Defense; Offense; and Coaches, Special Teams, and Systems. Then in each section, he discusses a valuable asset for your retirement or investing
Type 2 Diabetes may very well be the least understood and most over-treated common disease in America. That was my “walk-away” conclusion after reading “Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual” by Daryl Wein.
Wein, who himself has Type 2 Diabetes, is a medical professional who began personal research on the disease after contracting it. The result is a very informative guide that has a lot of valuable information for patients and doctors alike. I don’t have Type 2 Diabetes but I learned a lot of valuable tips that will help in my weight loss efforts.
The treatment regimen Daryl has come up with, if followed, means for many Type 2 patients that they won’t have to take medication but can control the disease and live a normal lifestyle simply by eating healthy and living a healthier lifestyle.
Wein’s biggest advice is to avoid all starches. Starches, which convert to sugar in the body, is public enemy number one for diabetics. More than once in his book Wein hammers home the point – “The single most important thing to do to manage Type 2 Diabetes is to avoid eating carbohydrates.”
Of course, all of us should avoid sugary foods. Diabetics should avoid all breakfast cereal,
In the next 20 years, you may get bored seeing more and more books analyzing the effects of the current economic crisis and what brought it on.
But, at the very beginning of this financial crisis, I’ve found the first book to advocate a new financial platform and address the biggest problem: adding more jobs and restoring worldwide financial stability.
The book didn’t just suddenly appear as an analysis of the world’s economic crisis. It has been stored in the brain vault of Leonard S. Johnson for more than 5 years. He has been tossing around ideas, coming up with new approaches and creating new kinds of thought for that entire time. And this was long before this financial crisis put the world on its collective knees. It was now time to come to the aid of a crumbling financial world.
That’s when Johnson decided it was time to give the world a needed answer to deal with these effects of the economic crisis with his innovative book “The Bank for International Ideas.” Johnson has based his book entirely on taking intellectual capital to intellectual property. He shows how to use the book’s premise to create a new financial order based on worldwide
In Trusting Your Inner Physician, one happily married couple, Drs. Ina and Glenn Nozek, offer their personal prescription, which is really a self-prescription, for success and happiness. Through a series of chapters and exercises, the Nozeks walk readers through how to improve their lives in numerous ways, and it all boils down to listening to what they call “your inner physician,” which might be interpreted as intuition or an inner knowing of what is right for you. Not everyone is the same, so not everyone will find that eating the same foods will make you healthier or that pursuing the same kind of career will make you successful. But with the tips the Nozeks provide in this book, you can figure out what you can do to make a better life for yourself.
Trusting Your Inner Physician takes a holistic approach to happiness by encouraging the reader to look at all aspects of his or her life and find balance among them. As retired chiropractors who also operated the Lifeline Center for Holistic Health in New Jersey and are now leaders in Isagenix International, a health product that they have found to have amazing results, the Nozeks feel that maintaining your
With the economic uncertainties in the world today, should America return to the gold standard? This controversial topic is the driving theme behind author Edmund Contoski’s book The Impending Monetary Revolution, The Dollar and Gold. Edmund, who has 45 years of experience in international markets and has conducted investment seminars in precious metals and foreign currencies, argues that “American politicians have debauched the currency for agendas contrary to our Constitution and to get themselves elected.” Whether you believe America should go back to the gold standard or not, most people would agree with the author’s statement that “governments are on the verge of bankruptcy because there is no restraint-which a gold standard would provide-on their spending and manipulation of credit.” Edmund Contoski has, with his book, made a topic I would ordinarily find dull and dry-namely, economics-one which is fascinating and interesting.
What are some of the points the author brings up to support his argument that the United States and the world should base the stability of their currency on their gold reserves? What’s happened to Greece is one of the best examples that the media and economists use to illustrate the worst that can befall a country which spends
