• Are you depressed, feeling down, and don't have the drive to do anything?
• Do you find it next to impossible to focus and concentrate on tasks?
• Do you find it hard to remember names or where you left your keys?
• Do you get anxious, worried, or stressed-out frequently?
• Does your mind feel foggy, unable to experience the world clearly?
All is not lost. Three-time New York Times bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman unveils his groundbreaking program that shows how we can fix our broken brains by healing our bodies first. Based on the emerging field of Functional Medicine, Dr. Hyman presents a simple six-week plan to restore health and gain an UltraMind, one that's highly focused, able to pay attention at will, has a strong memory, and leaves us feeling calm, confident, in control, and in good spirits.

The Epstein-Barr Virus Solution
By Kasia Kines, Ph.D.
From the Best Selling author Dr. Kasia Kines. Take your life back! For anyone suffering from Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorders, Infectious Mononucleosis, or other mystery illnesses, this is a must read! Do you feel lost and hopeless, living a life of illness with no answers? Do you feel unsupported by your medical team, left to suffer alone with no guidance? Are you searching for solutions to get your health and life back on track?
Finally, a book that speaks to both the medical community and people inflicted by both mono and chronic conditions caused by EBV! The expanse of this pivotal book is far reaching – many people may not yet know they have been infected with EBV (commonly known as the “kissing disease”), but yet they struggle every day with chronic symptoms such as severe brain fog, debilitating fatigue, headaches, fever, chills, sore throat, body aches, and abdominal discomfort and can’t seem to find a successful treatment solution. Eventually, some go on to develop autoimmune disorders, e.g. Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and even cancer and are told that their immune system is simply confused and is now attacking itself, left with no solutions or hope for recovery. Alarmingly, chronic EBV infection is almost completely missed in medical practice, and as a result of never being tested, misinterpreting the test results, not being diagnosed, or being mis-diagnosed by their doctors, millions of people suffer debilitating conditions for many years with no answers. But this suffering can be avoided. And with this book, answers can be found. Author Dr. Kasia Kines is considered by her colleagues to be “one of the most brilliant, and importantly, clinically experienced functional nutritionists in the world.” In Epstein-Barr Virus Solution, Dr. Kines provides a groundbreaking examination of EBV and not only how it causes chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer but also how recovery is possible. This book was written in hopes that it will globally change the way EBV is understood, diagnosed, and treated. The deep journey into the existing research sheds light on the EBV virus for both the seasoned medical community and the layperson. Along with the validated research, Epstein-Barr Virus Solution presents practical, time-tested, and evidence-based clinical solutions for the testing and medical nutrition therapy for EBV, testing and lab interpretation, unique supplementation protocols, recovery strategies for stress, insomnia, fatigue, and toxicity, pantry and kitchen rehab for EBV, and delicious anti-EBV recipes. Through Dr. Kines’ compassionate guidance, readers will feel confident to discuss their concerns with their doctor, to ask for testing, and to take their lives back from EBV. Epstein-Barr Virus Solution urges medical providers to hear their clients’ concerns and provides the medical community with the research and insights needed to avoid misdiagnosis and common problems with testing for EBV. Epstein-Barr Virus Solution was made possible because of Dr. Kines’ long-standing expertise as a functional clinical nutritionist who has dedicated her practice to working with clients inflicted by EBV. Dr. Kines tells readers in easy-to-understand language that recovery and hope for better health are possible through targeted nutrition and lifestyle changes. Readers are given a toolkit full of practical advice and guidance, including exclusive materials from Dr. Kines’ life-changing 30-Day Detox Program that she has taught successfully for over 10 years. The research is out there, and Dr. Kasia Kines has found it, synthesized it, and utilized it to implement successful treatment protocols in her own clinic. Clients who had suffered years with chronic EBV infection symptoms are now recovering and living their lives. The Epstein Barr Virus Solution will provide those infected with EBV everything they need to finally take control of their health and take their life and happiness back.
Gut and Psychology Syndrome
By Natasha Campbell-McBride, M.D.
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child diagnosed with learning disabilities, she is acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping these families. She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field.
Her willingness to share her knowledge has resulted in her contributing to many publications, as well as presenting at numerous seminars and conferences on the subjects of learning disabilities and digestive disorders. Her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome captures her experience and knowledge, incorporating her most recent work. She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute, and the results of her work have supported her position on this subject. In her clinic, parents discuss all aspects of their child's condition, confident in the knowledge that they are not only talking to a professional but to a parent who has lived their experience. Her deep understanding of the challenges they face puts her advice in a class of its own.

By Elaine Gottschall, B.A., M.Sc.

By Dr. Ben Lynch
After suffering for years with unexplainable health issues, Dr. Ben Lynch discovered the root cause—“dirty” genes. Genes can be “born dirty” or merely “act dirty” in response to your environment, diet, or lifestyle—causing lifelong, life-threatening, and chronic health problems, including cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, obesity, cancer, and diabetes.
Based on his own experience and successfully helping thousands of clients, Dr.
Lynch shows you how to identify and optimize both types of dirty genes by cleaning them up with targeted and personalized plans, including healthy eating, good sleep, stress relief, environmental detox, and other holistic and natural means.
Many of us believe our genes doom us to the disorders that run in our families. But Dr. Lynch reveals that with the right plan in place, you can eliminate symptoms, and optimize your physical and mental health—and ultimately rewrite your genetic destiny.
