  • CONSCIOUS FITNESS: From Limited Beliefs To Mindful Health

    CONSCIOUS FITNESS: From Limited Beliefs To Mindful Health

    CONSCIOUS FITNESS is a timely and important book that invites its readers to gain a new perspective on health and wellness. It involves looking at nutrition, exercise, and overall fitness from our most basic level, pure energy, otherwise known as Zero Point Energy. It is a modern journey into critical thought, intended to rid the reader of limiting beliefs they may have about their health, weight, level of fitness and their capacity to change.

    This book begins with an exploration of human health and wellness from an energy perspective. At the most subatomic level, ultimately, we are nothing but pure energy and the health of that energy affects our outward mental and physical well-being. This energy can be found (or hidden) by the conscious mind, and its canvas is our very bodies and our minds. Through the use of new scientific research, quantum science, philosophy, exercise physiology, spirituality, nutrition, and motivational science, the reader is introduced to a new belief system. This system challenges the reader to consider new possibilities regarding their health and wellness.

  • Enhancing Low Carb Diets: How can we make low carbohydrate diets more effective and healthier?

    Enhancing Low Carb Diets: How can we make low carbohydrate diets more effective and healthier?

    MORE THAN WEIGHT LOSS

    As a book whose point is enhancing the low-carb diet program, Stephen Holt’s Enhancing Low Carb Diets provides readers with so much more. The book is anchored on Dr. Robert Atkin’s study on low-carb diet, also known as Atkins Diet. It is commendable how, throughout the book, Holt does not fail to give credit to Dr. Robert Atkins and his contribution to the dietary institutions in America, while other authors have copied Atkin’s principles without giving him proper credit disregarding the years of research and study it took for Atkins to develop his low-carb diet program. The book, which is partly medical and partly self-help, provides definite goals from the start. For the readers, knowing what to expect in the following chapters helps prepare them for the discussions to come. In this case, the main goal presented is to counter obesity through a healthy approach. The book is designed to guide the readers as they go through each chapter, helping them realize (and even act on) the severity of obesity as a health hazard in modern-day America. Holt utilizes an urgent tone in Enhancing Low Carb Diets, which is effective in highlighting the significance of this subject. The goals he set are also feasible enough for readers to apply to their lifestyles.

  • Holt on: The Plant Protein Revolution

    Holt on: The Plant Protein Revolution

    Scientists continue to enumerate the benefits of plant-based protein diets for the population at large, but only a limited number of people hear and act on this simple message. This circumstance creates a monumental task in any attempts to change the eating habits of a nation. While it is often difficult to pin-point the influence of certain or individual dietary constituents on health, it appears clear that strong carnivorous tendencies tend to breed ill health. The over inclusion of meat protein in the human diet presents excessive intake of saturated fat and cholesterol and it contributes to excess morbidity and mortality from cancer, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. While this book highlights the negative effects of excessive animal protein on health, it presents foundations to support the conclusion that a change towards plant protein intake will confer health benefits on the U.S. nation or much of Western society.

  • Holt On: The Women’s Wellness Revolution

    Holt On: The Women’s Wellness Revolution

    Women’s Wellness is a very complex subject that has been summarized in this book, with special emphasis on menopausal disorders and premenstrual syndrome. In this book, there is a reasonably comprehensive account of hormone replacement therapy including discussions about its disadvantages and limitations. A growing number of physicians have opted to use “natural hormones” as a basis of their treatment approach. While menopause is a principal problem for the mature woman, the book describes the male equivalent of this problem, namely the andropause. How the andropausal male interacts with the menopausal female is an important issue that I have termed the omnipause. A major strength in this book is the description of the use of remedies of natural origin for female complaints. This approach is apparent in Dr. Holt’s development of therapeutic “Menoplans.” The book is meant to match today’s changes in treatment paradigms towards more natural forms of treatment for women’s woes.

  • My Father’s Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life, and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancers

    My Father’s Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life, and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancers

    As a child, Lindy Bruzzone knew how she would “someday” die. It would be from cancer as what occurred with almost everyone in her family up to her generation.

    Bruzzone tells the story of an American family coming to America in the early 1600s, through today. Defying the odds of fate while pioneering a new country, the stories Lindy’s ancestors leave behind inspire the following generations to endure future challenges of facing hardship and survival.

    Lindy shares the fear and uncertainty earlier family members experienced living with an unknown hereditary cancer syndrome during the eugenics movement in the early 1900s. Its mission was the mass sterilization of individuals considered “inferior” in an attempt to develop a “better breed” of persons.

    Bruzzone takes the reader inside the notorious San Quentin prison and upon California’s mean streets where she works as a parole agent. There, she learns there are many ways to die as she flirts with danger and defies mortality.
    Finally, embarking upon a genetic journey, Lindy recounts the challenges of her own battles with cancer and how she learns to save her family and herself from hereditary cancers.

    Providing inspiration and serving as a working guide of how one family confronted difficult challenges in life, My Father’s Daughter serves as a guide in how to survive life’s challenges and live with the hereditary cancers of Lynch syndrome.
    This revised 2017 edition of My Father’s Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancers, is scheduled to be released to the public in August of 2017.

    About the Author:

    Lindy Bruzzone is a retired peace officer, an investigator, and an author. In 2007, the diagnosis of a late staged, Lynch syndrome hereditary cancer changed her life. She and her husband Steve founded Lynch Syndrome International, a global, nonprofit organization.

    For five years she served as the CEO and Executive Director. That commitment ended July 1, 2014, when she handed the reins to others to further its development. Lindy and her husband Steve reside in the Southern Nevada desert with their Australian shepherd, Gus.
