The Great Physician's RX for Health & Wellness: Seven Keys to Unlock Your Health Potential

At 19 years old, Jordan Rubin was a healthy 6'1" and 180 pounds. Shockingly, his weight fell to just 104 lbs. in a matter of months. His immune system was at an all-time low, as he suffered from Crohn's disease, food allergies, anemia, fibromyalgia, intestinal parasites, and a host of other conditions. After seeing over 70 health professionals, using both conventional and alternative medicines, Rubin was sent home in a wheelchair to die.But his story didn't end there. Through determination and a powerful faith in God, Rubin refused to give in to disease. Instead, he educated himself on natural health (eventually becoming a doctor of naturopathic medicine), and applied its principles. Now, ten years later, Rubin is fully recovered-and he desires to share the keys to his own good health. These keys aren't just for the disease-ridden; they are for anyone desiring to live an abundant life of health and wellness.

Everyday Eating with Muriel and Andrew

Almost as frequently as I hear questions about vitamins, I am asked about my diet. As many of you know, as dedicated as I am to quality nutritional supplements, I am even more passionate about the food we eat. When I was a young athlete, I ate everything in sight with complete disregard for the health or quality of what I ate. My only concerns were the food's ability to fuel my athletic endeavors (the more calories the merrier) and support muscle tissue (tons of protein). Basically, I sought calories with a complete disregard for their quality and source. Fortunately, with age comes wisdom and now I always consider the consequences of the foods I eat, thus avoiding what I have always called dangerous "provocative" foods. For me, the most provocative foods are those that are highly processed and those with ingredients with a high glycemic index and added sugars or salt. Muriel and I share these same goals, since the science is now quite clear on how to eat for optimum energy and ideal weight. Because Muriel and I eat so healthy, folks assume that our food must taste like cardboard. Nothing could be further from the truth. When friends and family eat at our home, they are always astounded that everything is so healthy, because it also tastes so delicious. In this book, Muriel has revisited many of America's favorite foods and transformed them into healthy delicious meals. Specifically, even when called for, we add very little salt or sweetener to any recipe. We also do not use wheat or gluten nor typical pasta, rice, bread or even white potatoes or white rice. I hope the everyday recipes in this book make it easier for you and those you love to reclaim your health from those who prefer to see you live otherwise. Bon appétit! Andrew and Muriel

The Wellness Sense: A practical guide to your physical and emotional health based on Ayurvedic and yogic wisdom

Why do certain foods harm some people and help others? How come the same weight loss program shows different results on different individuals? And, why do some people fall sick more often than others? Answers to these questions and many more lie in Ayurveda where your body is not just looked upon a holder of flesh and bones but the finest vehicle of experiencing all pleasures and sorrows. In Ayurveda, as in yoga and tantra, the health of an individual is not just the state of his physical body but an aggregate of the body, senses, mind and soul. Your body is a sacred space, it is the seat of your consciousness. The Sanskrit word for health is svasthya; it means self-dependence or a sound state of the body and mind.
