Summary

This isn’t a book full of rules on How You Should Write Your Book.
 

First off, I don’t even know all the rules to writing, at least not in any instructional sort of way. For every rule identified by an expert, you can easily find someone else who did the exact opposite and somehow managed to create a kick-ass story.
 

This is a book about how I understand darkness, its place in story, and how I make dark fiction that people enjoy reading.
 
I'll show you my process. How I feel my way through a story, looking to dig deeper into the psyche of my characters, plots, and themes.
 

At its heart, this book isn’t just about the dark, but also the light. And in our darkest times, it's more important than ever that we hold onto the light.
 

But first, we must be willing to explore the darkness.

    ‘A long-awaited book that answers many questions.’ 
    Jan de Vries 
     
    Antibiotics were developed in the 1940s. Then, they were hailed as a huge breakthrough in the treatment of bacterial infections. Today, they are the most commonly prescribed drugs worldwide. But massive over-prescription of antibiotics has created its own problems. The advent of antibiotic-resistant organisms – or ‘superbugs’ – has led more and more people to demand alternatives. 
     
    Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics is a revised and updated version of Dr John McKenna’s international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics. First published in 1996 and translated into 16 languages, Alternatives to Antibiotics explains in simple, jargon-free language the variety of alternatives to antibiotics in treating infections. Dr McKenna compares conventional medicine and alternative medical approaches, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of both. 
     
    In Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics, Dr McKenna looks at the various strains of infections which have become resistant since his international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics was published. Dr McKenna has expanded his sections on alternative, herbal, homeopathic and nutritional medicines, and shows directly that it is still possible to treat infections without antibiotics while still acknowledging the times that they may be necessary.Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics: Table of ContentsIntroduction

    A New Revolutionary Breakthrough In Dental Health
     
    Can you regrow teeth? That’s the question you’re probably wondering.
     
    The answer is...yes...but not in the way you may think. Let’s put it this way, your body can’t grow back a new tooth like it would for a piece of hair, nail, or skin layer that naturally replaces itself. However, a tooth can be regrown on a surface level which is known as “tooth remineralization.”
     
    What is tooth remineralization? It’s the regrowth process of restoring vital minerals and adding back layers to your teeth to make them stronger, bigger, and more solidly whole again.
     
    Your teeth will naturally weaken over time due to continuous use and even abuse (e.g., using your teeth as a tool to open things), overexposure to unhealthy diets high in sugar, poor oral hygiene from neglect of regular tooth brushing and mouth cleaning, etc.—resulting in all-too-common tooth decay, cavities, gum diseases, and other dental problems.
     
    The reality is that you only get one set of teeth in your life (excluding baby teeth). If you fail to take care of the teeth you have now, you’re going have to spend thousands of dollars and up for expensive dental works later down the road.
     
    On the other hand, if you’re one of the few who takes up the practice of manually performing tooth remineralization as soon as possible—you can restore your teeth back to its healthy natural state and keep them for life.
     
    Here’s what you will discover inside “Tooth Regrowth”:
     
    * The NASA-developed toothpaste used by astronauts to remineralize teeth.
     
    * The oldest medicinal system in the world to restore your pearly whites.
     
    * The natural herbal approach to rejuvenate the regrowth process in your mouth.
     
    * The most potent way to get your calcium intakes for building strong teeth.
     
    * The connective-tissue acid to fight periodontitis and reverse receding gums.
     
    ...and that’s simply scratching the surface of tooth remineralization.
     
    Don’t let your teeth deteriorate to the point where it’s too late to fix the problem that you could have prevented or fixed yourself. Pick up “Tooth Regrowth” now to remineralize your teeth and reclaim a healthy shiny smile that you can be proud of.

    “Today, people are returning to natural diets in order to live healthier and happier lives—the hallmarks of ‘wellness’—and science has been validating the benefits. One of the natural foods being rediscovered is the coconut. Although vilified as a cause of heart disease, coconut oil has always shown itself to be a healthy and curative oil. Numerous studies using the tools of modern science are finally revealing—and validating—the beneficial effects of coconut oil.”— From the Prologue
