What is Paleo Diet?
Basically, Paleo diet is a fancy word for caveman diet; it’s what our ancestors used to consume tens of thousands of years ago when hunting was the only way to acquire food. The fundamental concepts behind the Paleo diet boil down to the genetic level. Simply put, our DNA has not significantly changed over the past 40 thousand years, and therefore, our bodies have not yet fully reformed to the contemporary, highly processed and artificial food items that are available in abundance nowadays. Thus the Paleo style of eating is the most biologically appropriate diet for us.

What can I eat?
Paleo diet includes anything that can be hunted or gathered. Clearly, hunting is not an option to acquire food nowadays but you can still obtain it from a supermarket, if of course the food was readily available during the Paleolithic period. Paleo diet includes and is not limited to meat, fish, vegetables, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, roots, fruits, coconut palm sugar and raw honey. Dairy, potatoes, processed oils, grains, legumes and sugars are to be avoided, along with salt and any drinks except water, coconut water and green tea. The diet of course eliminates any processed and readymade foods available today and is gluten free, largely due to the exclusion of grains. Read more…

The Trouble Begins
Chapter # 1: Warning Shots

As obvious, the Paleo diet cuts off a lot of carbohydrates and dairy products from one’s diet. When you start up with the Paleo diet, the first few weeks might be particularly hard on you. Many Paleo gurus brush this off by stating this as an adaption phase for your body, from a high-carb diet to a low one. Many people fall for this trap and continue with the diet plan but the reality is somewhat different; you will find out soon enough. The following are a list of side affects you may experience when starting out with the Paleo regimen:
• Headache
• Fatigue
• Nausea
• Lack of energy
• Lack of concentration
• Weakness
• Light-headedness
• Dizziness
• Irritability
• Constipation and/or diarrhea
• Body aches
• Cold sweats
You might start experiencing them within the first 12 hours of dieting. These side effects may resolve within a few days or may last for up to 2 – 4 weeks in some extreme cases.

Imagine yourself travelling back in time – far back. When you open your eyes, you are sitting on a small rock, about 10,000 years ago. The paleolithic era of history is almost at its end. Birds are flying around. There are trees and animals everywhere you look. The air is clean and so nice to breathe in. A cool wind is
blowing through your face. Suddenly you feel hungry and you know that it’s time to eat. You call some of your fellow tribe members. Spears are brought out and after some chasing and running you all hunt down a bison. You take out meat from the bison’s body and roast it on fire. Then someone brings in some natural herbs and berries from nearby and thus, a delicious well-balanced meal is served and everyone gets his share. Tired as everyone is after the hunt, everyone sits down to eat.

There are different dieting plans present in the world today which can be obtained through different resources. Each of these dieting plans claims to be better than the other one. But the plan mentioned in this book makes no such claims. It is about a popular plan or you should say a complete way of eating and living known as “Intermittent Fasting”. Now you might be wondering what is intermittent fasting, what are its benefits and how to apply it in your own life? But wait a minute. Just take a deep breath. If the answer to all these queries would have been this easy, I would have just sufficed on writing an article and not a whole book on the topic. You will just have to read this book to get your queries answered.
Before formally starting the topic, a brief overview of the book will give the readers a better idea about the book. As the title suggests, the focus of this book is to answer only one question and it is that what are the health benefits of intermittent fasting? However, other aspects are also discussed in the book. This book can be divided into three parts. The first part will give a brief introduction about intermittent fasting like what it is, the mechanism behind it and how to apply it in your everyday life? The second portion analyzes the pros and cons of intermittent fasting and ways to maximize its benefits. The third part will discuss the health benefits (the main focus of this book) of intermittent fasting. Read more…

Our books are available at:

 1. Amazon.com  2. Barnes and Noble  3. Itunes 4. Kobo  5.Smashwords

Table of Contents

Introduction
Section one:
What is obesity?- The story behind
Causes of obesity-“Why am I getting fat?”
Section two:
How to treat your obesity?
Food you should eat to lose weight-“Eat healthy to stay healthy”
Foods to avoid- “Think before you eat”

“Overall, more than 10% of the world population is obese”
(World health organization- WHO)

Superfluous food and the ease with which we can attain all the things we need has made physical activity almost extinct. It’s safe to say that obesity is the gift of modern era; a gift that can potentially be deadly. For instance, according to the same report almost 2.8 million adults die each year of obesity! If you’re suffering from this disease of modern era, this last point should give ample reason for you to try get rid of obesity. This book discusses how dangerous obesity can be and gives you a complete plan regarding how you can get rid of this curse of the modern era.
Is obesity as evil as it sounds? Yes, it is. Not only it makes you look unfit but also makes you susceptible to a number of health hazards like high blood pressure, metabolic disorders, diabetes, stroke, joint complications, cancer and heart attack.
It’s ironic that how the hearts and souls of people tremble when they hear of diseases like cancer, heart attack and stroke. Obesity; who cares about it? I love food, I live for eating, and eating is my life. People try to hide this foe behind these statements. Why wait for a heart attack or a stroke? Why not try to nip the evil in its bud? I feel no hesitation in saying that obesity is the mother of hundreds of other diseases. It’s not a disease in itself but is the risk factor of several other maladies.
By now you would be wondering; “if obesity is so dangerous then it should take a magical pill to get rid of it”. That magical pill is in your hands. A healthy lifestyle is the only way to get rid of this condition. Who needs a doctor when you can cure a condition all by yourself? The major portion of this book focuses on describing the dietary habits, different exercise, herbal alternatives and home remedies to burn extra fat. But sometimes, things do get serious and you need a doctor. The last few pages describe the medicinal and surgical remedies of obesity. Read more…

Introduction.
“An estimated 22 million Americans have asthma; 6.5 million are under 18”
(American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
Asthma is a serious complication of respiratory track which causes symptoms like chest congestion, coughing and difficulty in breathing.
“In America alone, asthma causes 4,000 deaths per year” (American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
Environmental pollution and too much exposure to harmful chemicals have significantly increased the susceptibility of people getting asthma. The death toll is expected rise even further. The cost of treatment of asthma is increasing. Accept it- No one likes going to a doctor. A single visit to a doctor costs too much.
“Americans spend, through direct and indirect expenses, a total of $19.7 million each year for the treatment of asthma” (American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
This book focuses on describing all the possible natural treatments of asthma. You don’t have to go to great lengths to cure asthma. Sometimes, simple things in your cupboard or refrigerator can serve as homemade remedies for asthma. Another natural way is to treat asthma with herbs. Herbs are being used for the treatment of several ailments for thousands of years. But, it’s an astounding fact that people consider them unsafe and difficult to use. Several experimentations have proved that herbs can cure several health conditions with virtually zero side effects. A simple change in life style can also help in curing asthma. Asthmatic attacks, in some cases, are triggered by eating certain food substances. So, having knowledge of what to eat and what to skip can actually decrease the frequency of asthmatic attacks.

Section one – Asthma – an overview

Asthma – What is Asthma?
Asthma is a common health condition related to an immune reaction taking place in the respiratory track. It’s a breathing disorder characterized by several symptoms like air way obstruction, difficulty in breathing, tightness of chest, coughing and wheezing. For most of the people asthma is not a big problem. But, in reality it can cause serious hindrance in performing routine activities. If it goes untreated, it can produce serious and life threatening conditions.

Asthma is an immune reaction triggered when the respiratory track is exposed to certain irritating stimuli. Human body has got a strong immune system which protects it from the harmful effects of foreign substances like chemicals, pollutants and organisms like bacteria and viruses. An important component of this immune system is “mast cells”. These cells respond to the presence of certain “antigens” and release several mediators of inflammation, in the presence of these antigens. For example, if these cells are exposed to the smoke of cigarette, they’ll release several chemicals which, in turn, will start a cascade of events leading to the development of symptoms of inflammation. These mediators cause spasm in the muscles of respiratory track, increase the production of mucus and make the respiration difficult.
Asthma is a combination of several environmental and genetic factors. Read more…

Introduction: The ancient diet
In the search for the best diet, a theory was presented in the 1980s. The theory reminded humans of their ancestors and the healthy lives they used to live. It blamed the development of modern diseases on our present imperfect diet which it considers a recent innovation as compared to what our bodies have been adapting to, for the major part of history. It says that if we eat the diet of our ancestors, we will return to that healthy state and the diseases of our present time will fade away into non-existence. This is the concept behind paleo diet.
Paleo diet, a modern adaptation of the supposed diet of our ancestors, is claimed to be the solution to the dietary hazards of our time. Can it really provide benefits over our present diet? Can it really be the solution of hazardous diseases that have plagued the modern society? This book discusses the advantages of paleo diet over modern diet relevant to the cure of diseases and assumes the position that indeed, paleo diet can be the solution for the major diseases of our age.

Preface
Anxiety, what is it? The common perception of anxiety is a disorder that keeps a person all tense and worried. The reality however is quite different; Anxiety is not itself a disorder, it is a universal term used for a collection of disorders that cause fear, nervousness, worrying, apprehension, etc. These may sometimes be combined with physical symptoms that include shaking, sweating, chest pains and headaches. Anxiety is not a disease or an epidemic but is a natural response to certain events; for example you may feel anxious on a roller-coaster or when you’re trying to finish a test in the last few minutes. Therefore, no one is immune to anxiety; anyone can have a sudden anxiety attack and experience symptoms of anxiety.Many people are not always under the effect of anxiety but experience sudden jitters or anxiety attacks.
Initially anxiety is not dangerous but it can become a problem when you start to feel anxious for no reason. This is the first sign of danger and if left unattended can cause problem that can disrupt your entire social and professional life.
“Reading, learning and even thinking about tackling anxiety will make you more anxious.”
– Unknown
Right now and right here, it should be clear to you that this is an entirely false and ridiculous myth and believing it would do you no good. If you don’t know what you’re dealing with how are you supposed to counter it? So do not let this thought become a hurdle in managing anxiety.
In this book you’ll learn how to counter every disorder associated with anxiety and you’ll learn to do it naturally! Therefore, just relax and get ready to get all that uninvited anxiety right out of your system. Read more..
