    Unbreakable 
    An Olivia Marie debut novel 
    Based on a true story 
    I'm nothing like they expected me to be. 
    As I watch my little family, I can't help but smile and think I made it. It's as if the last thirty years of abuse and torment have been erased. Like it or not, I survived everything thrown at me and came out better for it. 
     
    Of course, there are still the flashbacks and scaring memories, but I'm not what they thought I was going to be. I'm not who they predicted I would turn into. 
    And I—for once—am not sorry. 
     
    Nothing can break me. 
    I am unbreakable.

    ABOUT THE BOOK 
    High blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension, a prevalent condition in the United States, is a major risk factor for stroke and heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, the economic burden to our society from HBP related problems and diseases is more than $93.5 billion per year. 
    Approximately 90 to 95% of all HBP patients have so-called essential HBP for which the cause is unknown. The remainder 5 to 10% has secondary HBP due to diseases of the arteries, heart, the adrenal glands or kidneys. The blood pressure measurement consists of two numbers, the top number is known as systolic and the bottom number, diastolic, BP expressed in mm Hg. Systolic BP is generated during the contraction of the heart whereas diastolic BP is generated during relaxation in between heartbeats.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK 
    The spectrum of Natural Medicines includes natural whole food as well as specific dietary supplements. Based on research conducted in the last two decades it has been repeatedly shown that natural whole foods (fruits, vegetables) with balanced minerals, vitamins, antioxidants as well as the right amount of micro and macronutrients are in general more effective and safer than any specific dietary supplement for the prevention and treatment of HBP.
    Several aspects of the Natural Medicine relevant to HBP will include the following:
    Source
    Mechanism
    Evidence-based of effectiveness
    Adverse Reactions
    Precautions
    Dosage
    The effectiveness of these Natural Medicines will be ranked into one of four categories:
    ***E:Clinically effective demonstrated by multiple randomized clinical studies.
    **E:Clinically beneficial demonstrated by several controlled clinical studies although some studies may show contradictory results.
    *E: Limited effectiveness demonstrated by controlled clinical studies

    Families are places of love, care, and fun; also of anger, anxiety, and quarrels. Not Speaking tells the story of a Greek matriarch, Rena, and her English children in post-war London and the present. 
    It begins with Rena’s move out of a flat in St John’s Wood owned by her son Nicky Clarke, and the family disagreement that erupted. Moving through the London slums of Blackfriars, Greece under Nazi occupation, the Old Kent Road, Elephant and Castle, and the world of Mayfair hairdressing, this is a tale of enrichment and fame, infidelity and its consequences. 
    And in the end, it has a message: every family is unique and all families are the same.
