Stay 40: Without Diet or Exercise

By Richard Lippman MD PhD

Stay 40: Without Diet or Exercise Stay 40 will guide everyone in creating a tailor-made anti-aging program, actually healing or reversing some aspects of aging, such as cataracts, hearing loss, and clogged arteries, without surgery. Everyone is encouraged to start a personal program to resolve many age-related pre-diseases — such as sub-clinical Type 2 diabetes — that many Americans over thirty encounter, but few doctors will treat until they become full-blown diseases. While Dr. Lippman acknowledges the importance of exercise and specialized nutrition —the 20% standard staples of any anti-aging therapy— he emphasizes the remaining 80% of his new therapies. Stay 40 presents a simple to understand and easy to implement three-level anti-aging program.

The Gene Makeover: The 21st Century Anti-Aging Breakthrough

Ohan Karatoprak, Frederick F. Beuchel, Vincent Giampapa

The gene makeover by Vincent GiampapaAging occurs in DNA because newly forming cells take their identity from their predecessors in a process similar to photocopying. Over time, environmental pollution, dietary and lifestyle factors, and genetic inheritance erode the cellular infrastructure. As the quality of new cells degrades, the molecules, nutrients, and chemicals that circulate in and among the cells become deficient. This causes a breakdown in functions throughout the body and promotes aging.

Thanks to the latest advances in genetic science, one no longer has to be a victim of genetic inheritance. Dr. Giampapa and other researchers have developed a new concept of health called personal genetic health (PGH). This pioneering program is based on determining what’s needed to promote each individual’s health and longevity. By identifying the functioning of five key groups of health-control genes and then influencing their favorable expression through nutrition and lifestyle programs, people can lead longer, disease-free lives. This book shows readers how they can personally direct and monitor their own health and become proactive in optimizing their quality of life.

The Perricone Prescription: A Physician's 28-Day Program for Total Body and Face Rejuvenation

Nicholas Perricone

The Perricone Prescription: A Physician's 28-Day Program for Total Body and Face RejuvenationWe generally believe that lines and wrinkles are an unavoidable part of the aging process. According to Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone, they are actually due to "inflammation" caused by poor nutrition, pollution, sunlight, irritating skin care treatments, and stress. In fact, this type of inflammation is more than just a beauty problem. The production of free radicals that damage the cells and organs in the body also increases the likelihood of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis.

The good news is, the Perricone Prescription Program can prevent and even reverse these problems. The program will not only produce visible improvement in the skin, it will improve your body's overall health and appearance. Dr. Perricone has developed his own skin care products and recommends other products he believes will help to improve skin tone. By following the Perricone Program of diet, topical creams, vitamins, and exercise, you can dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles and achieve a younger look within three days. You will look and feel better than you ever thought possible. Good health and beautiful skin–an unbeatable combination.

Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained

Jonathan V. Wright, Lane Lenard

Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science ExplainedIt's been more than a decade since Dr. Jonathan Wright introduced the concept of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with the book Natural Hormone Replacement for Women Over 45 (Wright JVW, Morgenthaler J. Smart Publications, 1997), at a time when only a handful of clear thinking, knowledgeable doctors had ever heard about bio-identical hormones. Many women first learned the truth about HRT and BHRT from that first book; others later heard about it from TV celebrity Suzanne Somers, who described her personal experiences with a different version of BHRT in the first of a series of books. But the real stampede away from HRT and toward BHRT began in 2002 with the premature termination of a large, government-funded study-the Women's Health Initiative (WHI)-the results of which confirmed that the risks of conventional HRT unquestionably outweighed its benefits. In their new updated book, /Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained, authors Wright and Lenard have brought to light many examples of forgotten or ignored scientific studies combined with up-to-date clinical experience that provide solid support for the safety and benefits of BHRT.

Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime

By Aubrey de Grey, Michael Rae

Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation BreakthroughsIn Ending Aging, Dr. de Grey and his research assistant Michael Rae describe that the aging of the human body, just like the aging of man-made machines, results from an accumulation of various types of damage. As with man-made machines, this damage can periodically be repaired, leading to indefinite extension of the machine's fully functional lifetime, just as is routinely done with classic cars. We already know what types of damage accumulate in the human body, and we are moving rapidly toward the comprehensive development of technologies to remove that damage. By demystifying aging and its postponement for the nonspecialist reader, de Grey and Rae systematically dismantle the fatalist presumption that aging will forever defeat the efforts of medical science.

World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17

G. Edward Griffin

World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17Mr. Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease like scurvy or pellagra aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modem mans diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile.

Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment. This is a new edition of the book. It is the most complete and authoritative treatise ever produced on Laetrile. It explains the theory by which Laetrile is believed to work. Case histories are included.

The Brain and Its Self: A Neurochemical Concept of the Innate and Acquired Drives

Joseph Knoll

The main message of this monograph is that the appearance of the mammalian brain with the ability to acquire drives ensured the development of social life, and eventually led to the evolution of the human society. This most sophisticated form of organized life on earth is still in the trial and error phase of its development. It seeks to outgrow the myth-directed era of its history and come to its final state, the ration-directed human society.
