Download and read online Pain Free for Women in PDF and EPUB “Women today not only deserve but should expect a pain-free, active lifestyle, no matter their age, no matter their previous experience.” Pain Free for Women In his famed San Diego clinic, Pete Egoscue has taught women of all ages and from all walks of life how to use the Egoscue Method for safe, effective, and permanent relief from chronic pain without prescription painkillers, physical therapy, or invasive surgery. Now he shares his specially adapted “Pain Free” program for women to use at home. Whether you suffer from back or neck pain, joint discomfort or sore knees, or need more stamina, improved balance, and extra strength, here is a revolutionary and proven approach to self-care that promises optimal health through a simple set of exercises that will transform the way you move and feel — forever! Egoscue shows women how to take back their bodies by recovering and restoring a precious health asset — full, free, flexible motion — that he believes has been drastically reduced by our modern lifestyle. As Egoscue explains, motion not only develops a woman’s body but also maintains and rejuvenates it. Yet as her motion-deprived muscles disengage and weaken, it is common for a woman’s body to lose alignment, leading to repetitive stress injuries, persistent pain, and general bad health. Even the simplest activities — how she sits, stands, walks, works, lifts, and sleeps — can trigger problems. Focusing on proper alignment, posture, and muscle engagement, Egoscue provides simple but powerful techniques to restore flexibility and function while at the same time boosting energy, revving up the immune system, even raising the body’s metabolic rate. The remarkable “E-cises” included within have also been linked to improved ability to fight disease, cope with aging, and recover from accidents and injuries. The “miracle” cure Egoscue offers is, simply, correct motion. Organized by the seasons of a woman’s life, Pain Free for Women pays particular attention to age-specific concerns such as puberty, childbirth, and menopause, as well as special issues such as arthritis, PMS, and depression. At the same time, Egoscue shows how women can build a framework of healthy movement that will prevent illness and maintain pain-free good health throughout the journey of life. According to Egoscue, reversing the effects of poor musculoskeletal fitness provides astonishing benefits, including: •Better balance, posture, and breathing, as well as increased resiliency •Effective and safe weight management •Healthy bone density and visual acuity •Heightened sex drive •Delayed symptoms of aging •Peace of mind and general tranquility Extensively illustrated to demonstrate proper placement, posture, and movement, Pain Free for Women offers women of every age the possibility of feeling better than ever before.

Download and read online The Pain Cure Rx in PDF and EPUB Are you struggling with chronic pain? You’re not alone: an estimated one billion of us across the globe suffer chronic pain every day. And what Dr. Mitchell Yass has found over his 20-year career is that many of us suffer needlessly. While the current medical model for treating pain isn’t helping, there is hope. The Pain Cure Rx presents an alternative model of treatment – the Yass Method – that can resolve pain quickly and effectively without surgery or medication. In the medical community today, most chronic pain is attributed to a structural problem, such as a herniated disc, a meniscal tear, or arthritis. But Dr. Yass has found that in about 90 percent of cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance – a condition that’s easy to treat on your own. The Yass Method, developed through his work with more than 14,000 patients, focuses on finding the true source of the pain and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief. Dr. Yass looks at the most common areas where people experience pain; lays out simple tests that examine things like range of motion, walking patterns, and posture; and teaches you to use this information, rather than invalid diagnostic tests, to determine whether your pain is muscular or structural. If it is structural, you can choose surgery, knowing that the outcome will likely be good. But if the pain is muscular, you can use the easy, step-by-step exercises and routines Dr. Yass offers to get the pain resolution you’re searching for. Many of the people Dr. Yass has treated came to him as a last resort before surgery or as a follow-up after surgery that didn’t resolve their pain. Many of them had been told that they would have to manage their pain with drugs for the rest of their lives, or, worse, that there was nothing left to try; they would simply have to live with the pain. This revolutionary book shows that, in most cases, this simply isn’t true – and empowers you to create a pain-free life.

Download and read online True to Form in PDF and EPUB Radical in its simplicity, Dr. Eric Goodman’s visionary approach to mindful movement corrects the complacent adaptations that lead to back and joint pain, and teaches us to harness the body’s natural movement patterns into daily activities to make us fit, healthy, and pain free. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. By adapting to posture and movement that have us out of balance—including sitting all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward to look at our phones—we consistently compromise our joints, give our organs less room to function, and weaken our muscles. How we hold and live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall health, and the good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body. Dr. Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement. He has trained world-class athletes for better performance, and has healed people of all ages and occupations of lifelong debilitating pain. His theory of self-healing is now available to everyone. His practical program trains the posterior muscle chain—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support away from joints and putting it back where it belongs: into large muscle groups. Filled with helpful diagrams and sixty color photographs, True to Form shows readers how to successfully integrate these powerful movements into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, up your game, or simply feel more energetic. True to Form shows you how to move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.
Download and read online The Low Carb Myth in PDF and EPUB Does a High Carb Diet Make You Fat, Hungry, and Lazy? The answer may surprise you, but the science says no The truth is that people can be healthy and lean eating a huge variety of diets. This should tell you that the answer to better health and fat loss isn't found in cutting one specific macronutrient from your diet, like many low-carb gurus would have you believe. So then why has the Paleo diet gotten so much attention lately? Surely some of the claims about carbs, sugar, and insulin must be true, right? Does being a "Fat Burner" Give you Incredible Energy and Melt Off Your Bodyfat? Low-carbers would have you believe that all of our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate low-carb diets and that being a "fat burner" (instead of a "sugar burner") leads to all sorts of magical effects like, boundless energy, superhuman athletic performance, better health--all while it melts off your bodyfat almost overnight. Yet, there's simply no evidence that low-carb diets were standard fare for our hunter-gatherer ancestors--there are countless tribes who ate huge amounts of carbohydrates and were perfectly lean and healthy. The studies are clear that in general, athletes on low-carb diets perform worse, not better. And there is a huge difference between being a "fat burner" and actually burning off your bodyfat. (They aren't the same thing, so don't get confused and be scammed out of your money by falling for this gimmick ). In reality, the science shows all of these claims around being a "fat burner" to be nothing more than a bunch of pseudoscientific myths. Move Beyond the Battle of the Macronutrients... ...and into the new era of health and fat loss In "The Low Carb Myth" by Ari Whitten and Dr. Wade Smith, MD, you'll learn the truth about low-carb diets and what you really need to be doing to lose weight, look great, and be healthy. You'll learn... The secret that's really driving the obesity epidemic (it's not carbs OR fat) The secret that's really driving the diabetes epidemic-it's not sugar or carbs How to break free of carb myths and pseudoscience, and eat carbs again The secret factors that really control your fat loss destiny (No, it's not the carb to fat ratio of your diet) How to finally have better health and a leaner body (without the crazy and unsustainable diets ) Most importantly, they will show you how to put carbs back on your plate while still slashing body fat."
