Sixteen year old Phoenix Troublefield endures the dark with his girlfriend, Star Windsong. When America announces that it will trade electricity for immigrants, Phoenix and Star sacrifice themselves for the power that might sa

Toxic Food/Healthy Food by Edward Aronoff

Book Description

Toxic Food/Healthy Food by Edward Aronoff

The Indie Book of the Day for 14th of June, 2014!

Genre: Health, Fitness

My new book on nutrition, good health and the food we eat, is a real departure from my earlier books on the American Civil War. Nevertheless, after 40 years as a doctor and certified nutritionist, I think this may be the most important book I’ve ever written. It may be the most important book you’ll ever read. It could even save your life!  If you are suffering from a serious health condition; if you’re struggling with weight, have high cholesterol, or you’re just sick and tired, then TOXIC FOOD/ HEALTHY FOOD is the clear, easy to read resource you’ve been waiting for. 

For example, you’ll learn:  • Why the richest countries with the most food suffer the most food related health issues. (And what adopting their diet can do to formerly healthy people!)  • How the foods we love to eat as babies and toddlers can cause serious problems for us later in life.  • How eating the right kinds of food can actually reverse heart disease and lower your cholesterol.  • Why learning to read a nutrition label could be the smartest thing you ever do.  • How to feed yourself and your family for a lifetime of health and vitality. 

This thoroughly documented book identifies common foods and food additives that have been linked to diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and a host of debilitating illnesses. The good news is that TOXIC FOOD/ HEALTHY FOOD also shows you a way to escape toxic food in your diet and start eating better today. You’ll discover an exciting new world of taste and flavor that will have you losing weight and feeling more energetic, all without dangerous drugs or radical surgery. 

You will be amazed at what I discovered as I researched this life changing book. I know it will open your eyes and awaken your senses to better health and a longer life – for you, and your loved ones.  Here’s wishing you good health and a long happy life! 

Dr. Edward Aronoff

Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed by Thomas Corriher & Sarah Corriher

Book Description

Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed by Thomas Corriher & Sarah Corriher

The Indie Book of the Day for 19th of March, 2014!

Genre: Health, Fitness

Without any fear of repercussion or rejection, Thomas and Sarah lead you through a compelling, never-before-seen exposure of widespread fraud in mainstream and alternative medicine in Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed. This book is meant to be more than just an investigation of fraudulent medicine — it’s intended to save your life. It’s sure to be provocative as you’ll learn much of what you’re told or sold by medical ‘authorities’ and the media can be reduced to cleverly devised narratives or pathways for profiteering. As you learn the ins-and-outs, you’ll be given the tools and knowledge to take charge of your health with confidence.

As the veteran “health detectives” of Health Wyze Media, Thomas and Sarah have earned enduring reputations for asking tough questions and getting unpopular answers. They are the producers of The Health Wyze Report, a hard, in-depth look at the truth behind today’s orthodox and alternative medicine, and “The Cancer Report”, a documentary about the cancer industry and its alternatives. Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed is the culmination of five years of in-depth, uncompromising medical research and reporting. Its premise is simple: it approaches standard and alternative medicine from a scientific standpoint, examining their goods and ills. It also asserts that the human body has natural healing abilities and that the answers to most of our health dilemmas are so close to us that we’re unable to see them.

Thomas Corriher and Sarah Corriher are the detectives from Health Wyze Media. They are refreshingly honest, which often means that they are hated by both sides equally. Over the past five years, they have produced a plethora of media, including audio shows and the documentary, “The Cancer Report”.

There is a significant upswing of interest in alternative medicine; but the authors convey that most of the related media is lacking in quality, integrity, facts and scientific principles. They express that there has been something of a self-perpetuating cycle wherein alternative medicine has been somewhat commandeered by the pagan religions. Not only do the authors provide a message of hope to people, but they show that true religion and true science are not enemies. When one fears either religion or science, then his own philosophical foundation is weak. Those who embrace truth do not fear investigation.

Most of the alternative media promotes frauds, such as “spiritual energy healing”, radiation, “urine therapy”, or they promote harmful non-food items as “superfoods”. The authors research legitimate alternative therapies, which were the standard therapies prior to the early part of the twentieth century, when medical schools were hijacked by the American Medical Association and the Rockefeller Foundation. They express that one of the reasons why alternative medicine is routinely mocked is because most of what has been presented as alternative medicine is not medicine at all. Instead, it consists of new-age occultism. Much of it dates back to the forbidden religious practices of the ancient Egyptians. Thomas and Sarah’s dedication to the truth and to using the tools that we have been given is one of the reasons why they refer to their healing methodologies as “God’s medicine”. They are giving credit where credit is due, and conveying that the human body was not designed to be broken.

Persevering through the Unforeseen by Roberta Goodman

Book Description

Persevering through the Unforeseen by Roberta Goodman

The Indie Book of the Day for 25th of February, 2014!

Genre: Health, Cancer

We’d been married for almost eleven years. Our union had produced two healthy, beautiful children. Our lives were filled with the routines most people flourish on. There had been some rocky times like most couples experience, but overall my husband and I were living unassuming lives. We never anticipated our world could change in a short amount of time, but on a cold winter night at the beginning of January 2011 it did. Suffering from pain in his groin, Eric was sent by our family physician to a hospital thirty minutes from our home to get an ultrasound. Our doctor suspected a contortion of the right testicle, and he acted quickly. Upon further investigation, Eric was found to have two masses contained in his right testicle. The preceding months would test our strength as a couple. It was hands down the darkest period of our lives to date. I chose to document what we went through in the hopes our experience can give comfort to those on a similar journey. The battle against Testicular Cancer was one my husband won, but it’s a battle my family will never forget. From the beginning, I’ve emphasized Testicular Cancer is to men what Breast Cancer is to women. Because more women are affected by Breast Cancer every year, than men are affected by Testicular Cancer, this disease gets publicized with greater frequency. By revealing the everyday struggles we encountered, and the hardships Eric faced as a cancer patient, I hope to educate, enlighten, and bring attention to a disease that affects thousands of men all over the world. I can’t emphasize enough to every man how important yearly check-ups are to maintaining his well-being. Pain is an indication something’s wrong and should never be ignored. Testicular Cancer is a fast growing threat many men could catch in time if they just make sure to look for the warning signs. I want to thank in advance all those choosing to read our story. It’s a personal one that wasn’t always easy for me to write down, but by doing so I knew I might be able to inspire others to fight when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
