Millions of people jog every day, but only one book can teach you the technical crafts and secrets. Chock-full of technique and innovative detail, The Perfect Stride is your go-to book for all things running. The difference lies not in who’s fastest or most fit, but who has the best stride and running form. This is where your real potential lies, and now, author Thomas Reckmann shows you how to reach it.
It all comes down to running technique—the stride that is efficient, time-saving, and easy on the body. Marathons and races become a delightful experience with these solutions:
How to train your technique
The running cycle
The shortcut to faster running
Multiple training sessions
In running culture, books and blogs are full of tips on intervals, threshold workouts, and heart rate counters. On the other hand, perfect technique is rarely discussed. With The Perfect Stride as your personal trainer, you’ll discover how to get to the light and efficient stride that will make your daily runs a dream.
About 100 million Americans live with some form of chronic pain—more than the combined number who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. But chronic pain has always been a mystery. It often returns at the slightest provocation, even when doctors can’t find anything wrong. Oddly enough, whether the pain is physical or emotional, traumatic or slight, our brains register all pain as the same thing, and these signals can keep firing in the nervous system for months, even years.
In Total Recovery, Dr. Gary Kaplan argues that we’ve been thinking about disease all wrong. Drawing on dramatic patient stories and cutting-edge research, the book reveals that chronic physical and emotional pain are two sides of the same coin. New discoveries show that disease is not the result of a single event but an accumulation of traumas. Every injury, every infection, every toxin, and every emotional blow generates the same reaction: inflammation, activated by tiny cells in the brain, called microglia. Turned on too often from too many assaults, it can have a devastating cumulative effect.
Conventional treatment for these conditions is focused on symptoms, not causes, and can leave patients locked into a lifetime of pain and suffering. Dr. Kaplan’s unified theory of chronic pain and depression helps us understand not only the cause of these conditions but also the issues we must address to create a pathway to healing. With this revolutionary new framework in place, we have been given the keys to recover.
A revised edition with new recipes and updated research on the best foods to eat to fight cancer
A comprehensive, holistic, and practical plan for cancer prevention and recovery, now completely revised and updated.
Grounded in documented research from leading medical institutions—along with studies of the world’s healthiest populations—nutrition educator Verne Varona has developed a breakthrough nutritional and lifestyle program for immunity building and cancer prevention and recovery.
In this groundbreaking book, Gary Null debunks the commonly accepted belief that drugs and chemotherapy are the only cures for cancer and explores the alternative treatments that most mainstream doctors will never discuss with their patients. Dr. Null asserts that there are foods and supplements that boost the body’s immune system and can actually prevent and reverse cancer. Did you know that eating lemons and melons can help balance your body’s pH, which will help prevent and treat cancer? You knew that fiber is important for a healthy diet, but did you know that it lowers the risk of breast, colorectal, uterine, and prostate cancers? Have you heard of maitake mushrooms, which kill cancer cells by enhancing the activity of T-helper cells? In addition to diet, Dr. Null discusses important supplements and herbs and cutting-edge therapies you may never have heard of. With twenty-five cancer-fighting recipes and testimonials from individuals who have found health through Dr. Null’s methods, this book could save your life.
