Predictive medicine is the most exciting—and potentially groundbreaking—medical development in decades. Written by Brandon Colby, MD, a leader in the fields of predictive medicine and genetic testing, Outsmart Your Genes will empower you, the reader, with a clear understanding of exactly what predictive medicine entails and how it can be used today to protect your health as well as the health of those you love. Written in straightforward, nontechnical language, Outsmart Your Genes enables everyone, even those without any background in genetics or medicine, to understand the benefits of predictive medicine. Separating myth from fact and answering all the tough questions, Outsmart Your Genes clearly explains: How the revolutionary new medical specialty called predictive medicine analyzes your genes and provides you with clear solutions to protect your health and wellbeing. What the process will entail and how simple it is. For example, the process doesn’t even require blood or use needles – instead, all that’s needed in order to run the analysis is a small amount of your saliva. What your genes can reveal about your overall health and how we can use that information to provide you with a genetically tailored plan for preventing cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, obesity, and many other conditions. As opposed to just generalities, specific examples are given so that you’ll know exactly how medicine will improve your life. The many ways in-which learning about your genes can help you formulate a genetically tailored nutrition and athletic plan that may help you shed those extra pounds and stay trim and fit. How predictive medicine can help both prospective and current parents protect their children against SIDS and also help minimize the impact of and most effectively treat many other childhood diseases such as autism, asthma, dyslexia, obesity, and diabetes. Why analyzing your children’s genes may provide the best chance they have to fight against diseases that may not affect them until later in life, including Alzheimer’s, many forms of cancer (such as breast cancer and skin cancer), multiple sclerosis, and even hearing loss. How groundbreaking advancements in the fields of genetic analysis, including predictive medicine panels and disease matrix technology, allow you and your physician to avoid information overload and focus only on the information most relevant to you. The important concepts you need to understand before speaking with a doctor. The top five questions you need to ask in order to assess: The credibility of the laboratory doing the testing. The types of diseases included in the test. How thoroughly the test actually evaluates your risk for each of the diseases. Whether the information is provided in a way that makes it actionable. Whether the results will be delivered in a format that is straightforward and easy to understand.
The Second Coming is unfolding in Tennessee, where intelligent design is a fact of life, and evolutionary science a lie. This is local reporter Laurie Hendricks' account of events, told through the lives of a small circle of disciples. We learn that a Second Coming does not signal the end of the world in a literal sense; it is a metaphor for our responsibility to create a better world. But first we must recognize that, as consciousness, we are infinitely more than these material bodies; they are simply our access to the material world. In allowing ourselves to be controlled by them, in struggling to satisfy their urges and demands, we create the divisive self-interest behind ALL of our problems. Laurie's story echoes the words of enlightened thinkers through the ages: The world only changes for the better when we do. First we must see through material illusions and recognize our Real nature as consciousness.
In The Bitter Prescription, Dr. Stagg outlines the core elements for optimal health as we age: using bitter bioactive foods to improve digestion and metabolism, the bitter truth about how your dietary needs change with age, and how getting rid of bitter feelings will set you up for your greatest potential. Armed with this knowledge, she provides you with a bioactive rich dietary plan that is not only an excellent source of nutrition, but also has the added bonus of helping you absorb more of those nutrients from your food and improve metabolism. As we get older, our digestive function and metabolism slows, making us more likely to suffer from deficiencies that can make our systems sluggish. What may have worked in our twenties seems to no longer benefit us. If you are eating well and not seeing results, this book is for you! While most books and diet plans out there may do a good job of outlining a food plan, they lack the tools to make the program long-lasting and accentuate the latest fad diet. As food- and health-conscious individuals know, it is much easier to start a plan than it is to sustain it. In The Bitter Prescription, Dr. Stagg also maps out how to utilize mindset and emotional health to make these changes last a lifetime!
