Download and read online Minding My Mitochondria in PDF and EPUB Dr. Terry Wahls links micronutrient starvation to the epidemics of chronic disease that are overtaking modern society. She explains the key roles mitochondria play in maintaining a healthy brain and body. Americans are eating so poorly, something we all know to be true, that the majority of Americans are missing key building blocks that are needed for brain cells to be healthy. The result is an epidemic of depression, aggression, multiple sclerosis and early dementia. She then teaches you how to eat for healthy mitochondria, a healthy brain and a healthy body in language that is clear and concise, even for those without a science background. In this book, Dr. Wahls explains basic brain biology in simple terms. She tells us what vitamin, mineral and essential fat building blocks are needed by the mitochondria and other key structures in the brain. Then she explains what foods are good sources for those key nutrients. Over a hundred recipes are provided to help get you started on this new way of eating. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to fund research into the benefits of these interventions in others.

Download and read online Head Strong in PDF and EPUB From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the bestselling The Bulletproof Diet comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower—in two weeks or less. For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for making humans perform better—a process known as "biohacking." In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain. Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest, and being able—possibly for the first time in your life—to do more in less time? What it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100% confident about your intellect, and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn’t smart enough, or can’t remember something important? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear? In Head Strong, Asprey shows us that all of this is possible—and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or "hacks") to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, readers will learn how to take their mental performance to the next level. Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired "get it done now" perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you: Power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long Eliminate the sources of "kryptonite," both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower. Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of our brains, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus. Reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years. Promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning—hotwiring your brain for success. Asprey’s easy to follow, two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including: which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body; meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements; and how to adjust the lighting in your home and work space to give your brain the quality light it thrives on. A better brain—and a happier, easier, more productive life—is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.

Aus dieser Erfahrung ist ein Überlebenshandbuch nicht nur für MS-Kranke entstanden: eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der Pharmaindustrie, ein leidenschaftlicher Appell, auf sich selbst und die Kräfte des eigenen Körpers zu vertrauen.

Download and read online Hirntuning in PDF and EPUB Dave Asprey, Erfinder des Bulletproof-Kaffees und Autor des Bestsellers Die Bulletproof-Diät, arbeitete die vergangenen zehn Jahre mit weltweit angesehenen Ärzten an der Erforschung der Neuroplastizität des Gehirns. Hierbei ging es ihm vor allem darum herauszufinden, wie sich unsere geistige Leistungsfähigkeit, Energie und Widerstandskraft steigern lassen. Er fand heraus, dass einfache Veränderungen des Lebensstils, sogenannte „Hacks", große Veränderungen der Hirnaktivität bewirken können. Als er diese Hacks bei sich selbst anwandte, erhöhte sich sein IQ um 20 Punkte und zugleich senkte sich sein biologisches Alter. In seinem neuen Buch Hirntuning zeigt Asprey, was unser Gehirn benötigt, um den ganzen Tag in Bestform zu sein, sodass wir absolut klar denken und in geringer Zeit sehr viel mehr leisten können. Betroffen sind vier zentrale Bereiche des Alltags: Ernährung, Schlaf, Bewegung und die Beleuchtung sowohl am Arbeitsplatz als auch zu Hause. Werden hier gezielte Optimierungen vorgenommen, werden das Wachstum von Neuronen angeregt und neue Mitochondrien gebildet. Informationen können dann schneller verarbeitet werden und dem Gehirn steht ein Vielfaches an Energie zur Verfügung.

The diagnosis: MS. Gradually, thanks to a diet rich in raw foods, she returned to her former energetic self. For the long term, though, she knew she had to create meals that she would find satisfying and that her husband and three children would love as well. And they had to be quick and easy. Many of the 130-plus dishes, like Brunchy Poached Eggs on Spinach with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, or Plum and Tatsoi Salad, are riots of color. Most can be on the table before the kids can even complain they're hungry. Indulgent snacks like Creamy Olive and Artichoke Dip and Butternut-Lemongrass Soup satisfy cravings, and chicken and fish—Single-Skillet Chicken Puttanesca, Chard-Wrapped Mahi-Mahi—come bolstered with plenty of raw produce and grains. Desserts ditch processed sugar in favor of natural sweeteners and power nutrients. The story of a quest for healing, Two Moms in the Raw is a keep-it-real guide to eating well for anyone who wants to get back on track, enjoy greater vitality, reduce stress, and achieve their best health.

Are you tired of feeling worn out, sick, and overweight?

Why is it that we experience weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses, and memory loss as we get older? While these ailments do become more common in our 30s and 40s, they aren’t inevitable. In fact, we are perfectly capable of remaining young, slim, and vigorous—and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp—if we give them what they need. What’s that? The right foods, plenty of sleep, and the healthy movement our bodies are craving.

The problem is that most of us don’t do that. We don’t realize what our bodies need, so we eat the wrong foods, skimp on sleep, and deprive our bodies of the movement they crave. Overwhelmed by the stresses and the pressures of our lives, we take a host of prescriptions, never realizing how they might be disrupting our body’s innate ability to heal. Most insidious of all, many of us lack the personal support and the community that we need to feel fully alive. Instead, we buy into the myth that age means decline.

Best-selling author and internationally recognized expert in integrative and functional medicine, Dr. Frank Lipman shares the 10 key steps to live your best life! He breaks through the common myths and misconceptions surrounding aging and dieting, and he zeroes in on what you need to do in order to feel great. His two-week Revitalize Program and extended Maintenance Program bring together key information regarding insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance, gut and hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders, medications and supplements, and community support. The book also features:

  • delicious, nutritious recipes to support you along the way
  • handy shopping lists and meal plans
  • simple exercises, meditation practices, and restorative yoga sequences
  • information about powerful anti-aging and digestive supplements and vitamins
  • and more!

Dr. Lipman also offers a lifelong Maintenance Program, so that after two life-changing weeks, you can continue on your path toward ultimate health and wellness for years to come.

In just two weeks—only 14 days—you can feel so much better than you ever imagined!
