For many of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has served as a wakeup call, forcing us to take a frank look at how well our immune systems could serve us during challenging times. Is your immune health up to par? Could it save you from a monumental threat? In this new book packed with up-to-the-minute information and illustrated with gorgeous photography, natural-wellness expert Dr. Joseph Mercola offers a powerful toolkit for strengthening immunity and supporting health. Eating a wide array of herbs and spices on a regular basis, he explains, can go a long way toward strengthening your immune system and preventing illness.

Upgrade Your Immunity with Herbs showcases 19 different medicinal herbs and spices-from Ashwagandha to Echinacea to Rhodiola-and offers ways to use them in delicious and creative preparations for everything from teas and tonics to full meals. And while there's little question that diet is the most important contributor to immune health, Dr. Mercola also shares insight into other factors that play key roles. You'll discover: § How to know much water you need each day (you may be surprised) § 11 ways to improve your sleep - and your immunity § What vitamins and minerals your diet should include § The common (but easy-to-quit) habit that's linked to cancer, excess inflammation and poor immune health § And more Here is all you need to know to build an immune system you can trust-and eat well in the process.

From Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the world's foremost authorities on alternative health: a guide to using the principles of ketogenic eating and meal planning and timing to treat disease, promote weight loss, and optimize health. Fasting is one of the most powerful metabolic interventions there is--one of the single best things you can do for your health. Strategically timed and planned fasts dovetail perfectly with a ketogenic diet, as they activate your body's fat-burning mode. This in turn can ward off insulin resistance, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, optimize brain function, prevent neurological problems, support weight loss, and more. In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola explores the profound health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Part I of the audio explains why this works, drawing on up-to-the-minute science as well as Dr. Mercola's decades of research and clinical experience. Part II shows how to put keto-fasting to work for your own health, with a specific protocol and practical guidelines to follow. Topics include: * How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it * The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation * How the cyclical ketogenic diet--with carefully timed meals--differs from the conventional keto diet * How fasting can help treat diseases from diabetes to fatty liver to Alzheimer's * ?And much more.Show more
For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if cancer isn't a genetic disease after all? What if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm, and cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases as well-and show us a radical new path to optimal health? In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what's really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.Dr. Mercola shows you that you can take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel-and it's not what you've likely been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing-not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.As you listen to this audio, you'll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You'll finally understand the type of fuel it's designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You'll find detailed guidelines for starting and sticking with a ketogenic eating plan. And you won't have to wait a decade or two for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain at the cutting edge of this exciting new discipline, starting right now.Show more
The hazards of electronic pollution may once have been the stuff of science fiction, but now we know they're all too real. And with the advent of 5G ultra-wideband technology, the danger is greater than ever. Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the world's foremost authorities on alternative health, has mined the scientific literature to offer a radical new understanding of how electromagnetic fields impact your body and mind. In this first-of-its-kind guide, he reveals: · What EMFs (electromagnetic fields) actually are, where you find them in your daily life, and how they affect you · The toll that EMFs have been proven to take in conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and neuropsychiatric illnesses · Why you've been largely kept in the dark about this threat to your health · How you can actually repair the damage done by EMFs at a cellular level · Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs at home, at work, and out in the world The coming 5G technology will be pervasive and powerful. It will also be one of the largest public-health experiments in history-with no way of opting out. That's why you need to read this book. Now.Show more
