Summary

While 5 months pregnant, clinical psychologist Dr. Nicole Anders received a phone call from her father that would shatter her heart and bring her to her knees.
 
"He's not in pain anymore," her father said, to the sounds of her sobbing in disbelief. Nicole's younger brother Cody had accidentally overdosed, taking his last breath earlier that morning.
 
In her profession, Dr. Anders specializes in trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), working with combat Veterans and sexual assault survivors. While no stranger to loss, this devastating trauma marked for her a profound first-hand experience with PTSD and heartbreaking grief.
 
One Hundred Goodbyes is the journey...
 
Nicole takes you along her journey through the grieving process, touching on all five stages as she wrestles with love and loss; from shock and denial to acceptance.
 
This timely account of losing a loved one is a testament to the tragedies inflicted by the opiate crisis - eye-opening, heart-wrenching, and powerfully honest.

    Skin brushing can make you feel amazing - right from the first session!
     
    (If you do it right)
     
    Dry skin brushing (aka body brushing) is an old naturopathic technique that you can do even when not feeling great. It simply involves brushing the body all over with a firm brush. Why? Because it makes you look and feel absolutely amazing!It works as a detox by stimulating the lymphatic and blood systems, boosting metabolism, and improving elimination through the skin - the body's largest organ. The lymph gets sluggish when we don't move much, as it relies on muscles to move its contents.
     
    Done incorrectly, any detox can make you feel awful - the side-effects can be pretty rough. This book shows you how to detox by using skin brushing without unpleasant side-effects. You will feel good from Day One. By Day Ten you will have established a new health habit that you can build on.
     
    A Unique New Method Of Dry Skin Brushing
     
    This book contains a unique method of brushing. If you have done skin brushing before you may have been told to start at the feet and just brush towards the heart. You'll find out why that isn't always the case and the exact way to brush every inch of your body. This new method has been tried, tested, and refined by the author, experienced aromatherapist and health coach Mia Campbell.
     
    The Benefits

    Why Do You Need This Book?
     
    Here is the author's own experience:
     
    "I was suffering from a few health problems, including chronic fatigue syndrome, and took up skin brushing as part of a regime to improve my health. I gave up caffeine at the same time. The result was a headache so bad that I wanted to die! I gave up skin brushing and the health drive and sloped back to bed. I hadn't realized that taking up new health habits should be done gradually, one at a time, or you can be overwhelmed by the effects of the detox. After I trained in aromatherapy and massage I understood more about detoxing. I learned about manual lymphatic drainage and wondered why most articles that explain how to do skin brushing differed so much from the way that manual lymphatic drainage therapists work. Over a period of time - and experimentation on my [willing!] clients - I devised my own method of skin brushing. It stimulates the lymphatic system without overloading it so makes you feel wonderful while detoxing, which is pretty rare."
     
    Check With Your Physician
     
    As always, do check with a physician or other health professional before embarking on a new regimen that can affect your health.

    From Bulletproof creator and bestselling author Dave Asprey comes a revolutionary approach to anti-aging that will help you up your game at any age. 
     
    ** New York Times Bestseller ** 
    Dave Asprey suffered countless symptoms of aging as a young man, which sparked a life-long burning desire to grow younger with each birthday. For more than twenty years, he has been on a quest to find innovative, science-backed methods to upgrade human biology and redefine the limits of the mind, body, and spirit. The results speak for themselves. Now in his forties, Dave is smarter, happier, and more fit and successful than ever before.  
    In Super Human, he shows how this is level of health and performance possible for all of us. While we assume we will peak in middle age and then decline, Asprey’s research reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to dramatically extend life span. And the tools to live longer also give you more energy and brainpower right now.  
    The answers lie in Dave’s Seven Pillars of Aging that contribute to degeneration and disease while diminishing your performance in the moment. Using simple interventions—like diet, sleep, light, exercise, and little-known but powerful hacks from ozone therapy to proper jaw alignment, you can decelerate cellular aging and supercharge your body’s ability to heal and rejuvenate.? 
    A self-proclaimed human guinea pig, Asprey arms readers with practical advice to maximize their lives at every age with his signature mix of science-geek wonder, candor, and enthusiasm. Getting older no longer has to mean decline. Now it’s an opportunity to become Super Human.

    Now a Wall Street Journal bestseller. 
    What if the games we played as children were the greatest gift to helping us achieve more today? 
    Before stage fright, impostor syndrome, emotional baggage, and the other dubious gifts of adulthood, everyone pretended to be a superhero, a favorite athlete, an inspiring entertainer, a nurse, a firefighter, a lion, or whatever else captured our imaginations. And yet, that natural creativity is slowly squeezed out of us because we think it’s childish or it’s “time to grow up.” Now Todd Herman—backed by scientific research and countless stories from the real world—will show us how to tap into the human imagination  to unleash new versions of ourselves, ready-made to kick ass.     
    Herman has been coaching champions in every field for over twenty years, and he’s helped them bring out their Heroic Self to transcend the forces pulling them into the Ordinary World.             
    Anyone attempting ambitious things faces adversity, resistance, and challenges, but Herman confronts these obstacles with a question: Who or what needs to show up to make success inevitable?   
    In The Alter Ego Effect, Herman presents countless stories from salespeople, executives, entertainers, athletes, entrepreneurs, creatives, and historical figures to illustrate how to activate the Heroic Self already nested inside each of us. And he reveals that we may not be using those traits in the moments when we need them the most. From the creative entrepreneur who resisted their craft, to the accomplished military officer who wanted to be a warmer dad at home, Todd Herman’s clients have discovered there is no end to the parts of their lives they could improve by using Alter Egos.
