The single celled micro-alga Chlorella is the high tech food that is as old as life itself. The highest source of natural chlorophyll, Chlorella has almost three times the protein of beef. One acre produces 15,000 kilograms of protein, nearly 20 times the per-acre yield of soybeans. Chlorella's ability to purify water and air while producing food make traveling and living in outer space possible, can transform animal waste to animal feed, and Chlorella ponds clean waste water while providing sanctuaries for birds and fish. With the intriguing regenerative qualities of the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), Chlorella is a highly prized health food in Japan, where millions of people eat it daily.

Chlorella covers the many benefits of this ancient organism, including recipes for incorporating Chlorella into your diet.

About
Severe, chronic pain affects at least 116 million Americans every year. But there are fewer than 4,000 pain specialists in the United States, and many insurers won't cover physical therapy. But powerful pain medicines? They will certainly cover those. Prescriptions for powerful pain killers doubled between 1994 and 2008 -- and abuse skyrocketed as well. The grim headlines are all too familiar. Celebrities such as Whitney Houston die of overdoses. Teens mix legitimate medicines -- and pay with their lives. Heavy-handed government attempts to crack down on pain and anxiety medications have terrorized doctors and pharmacists and left thousands of desperate people in severe pain.

Prescription Drug Abuse shows how big the problem is: how it became a problem, what is being done about it, and what readers can do. The book shows the risks, the benefits, and the safe way to use some of modern healthcare's most miraculous medicines.

About
Doctors think they heal with drugs. But only living cells can heal. When something is out of balance, your cells move to correct it because bodies want to be well. HEAL YOURSELF HOW TO HARNESS PLACEBO POWER shows how to tap into this mysterious process to get well and stay well by harnessing your body's natural healing power--the power of placebo.

These amazing effects are not just "in the mind." They can be observed and measured in the body's physiology. When patients believe in the treatment, ulcers heal, warts disappear, cancer goes into remission, swelling reduces--cells actually look different under the microscope. When your doctor believes in the treatment, the impact is even more powerful --not in every case, of course. But in enough that science now accepts that something is going on

HEAL YOURSELF explains how researchers believe that the stress response creates an environment that promotes physiological breakdown, while the relaxation Response creates a healing environment. HEAL YOURSELF offers specific things you can do, and do today, to turn on your body's innate healing mechanisms, including meditation, prayer, laughter, listening to music and rocking, Qi Gong, gratitude and forgiveness, and more.
