    Unlock The Keys To Fight Fatigue And Get More Energy All Day
     
    Having enough energy is vital to getting through the day.
     
    For professionals, that means being able to check off the to-do list and clear off the desk of work that has been piling up. For students, that means being able to manage all that studying while also being able to maintain a social life.
     
    And for everybody else and in between, simply going through the daily motion of life is exhausting, and by the time they are done for the day, they are ready to crash in bed and don't have the energy to enjoy the things they love but only to return to the grind the next day.
     
    What's the worst part of all? Most folks can't even make it through the day with their limited supply of exhausted energy, with so many things left on their plates to do before the afternoon slump hits. As a result, their work begins to suffer and fatigue has begun a norm causing detriments to their health.
     
    That is why it's crucial to be able to manually recharge your energy when necessary, and that can be easily accomplished using simple energy hacks.
     
    In “Energy Hacks,” discover how to:
     
    - Shock your body awake instantly with icy cold water
     
    - Apply the ancient art of acupressure points for energy
     
    - Rejuvenate your mind with specific breathing patterns
     
    - Overcome tiredness and fatigue by doing self-massages
     
    - Incorporate an energy-boosting elixir for 24-hour energy
     
    - Substitute the morning cup of Joe with better alternatives
     
    - Refuel your energy tank by using a surprising indulgence
     
    - Experience the incredible energizing effect of super foods
     
    - Fight the all-too common afternoon slump with power naps
     
    - Get more energy by absorbing the sensation of certain colors
     
    …and more for you to unlock!
     
    You shouldn't be surprised that your energy level also dictates your productivity level of how much you will accomplish for the day and every day that follows for the rest of your life. It's understandable when there is too much to do and never enough time, however, when it comes to not enough energy, that is a different story that you can control.
     
    If you are constantly burning up all your energy that you end up crashing, it's time to upgrade your human battery for unlimited renewed energy.

    A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease—America’s #1 killer
    
    Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren’t aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable—even if heart disease runs in the family.

In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP, present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease. They explain the three different genetic types of cholesterol profiles and tailor treatments for each type, using their cutting-edge Bale/Doneen Method, a comprehensive, evidence-based medical treatment plan that detects cardiovascular disease (CVD) at early stages and stabilizes it with individualized medical and lifestyle therapy. Beat the Heart Attack Gene includes easy quizzes and self-tests that show how to determine cholesterol genotype as well as advice for how to apply that knowledge through and individualized lifestyle advice. For heart attack and stroke survivors, the Bale/Doneen Method also helps prevent recurrences by identifying and treating what's triggering the patient's disease—a crucial step that many cardiologists neglect.

With their proven method utilized by healthcare professionals worldwide, Bale and Doneen empower readers by alerting them to potential health threats, and then offer personalized strategies so they can live healthy, active lives without fear of heart attack or stroke. Specifically, Beat the Heart Attack Gene addresses:

*The hidden cause of most heart attacks
*Early prevention methods
*The dangerous cholesterol most doctors don’t check
*Major red flags for heart attack and stroke risk, including gum disease
*The genes that increase cardiovascular risk as much as smoking
*The best and worst supplements and foods for your heart
*10 surprising ways to prevent heart attacks
