CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Do you like fruit? What if I told you that your favorite fruit could be contributing to your growing waistline and putting you at risk for diabetes and heart disease? Did you know that what you eat can affect your energy, your memory, your mood, and even how you think? Certain foods can even make a child behave poorly and lose focus in school. What if I told you that many of the health symptoms that Americans are experiencing today could be remedied by a simple solution: Nature s Diet

Our distant ancestors depended solely on 'Nature's kitchen' for survival; today our diet is genetically engineered, man-made in a factory, and loaded with harmful chemicals. The result: An epidemic of illnesses like never before seen in human history.

Dr. Andrew Iverson wrote this book after seeing chronically ill patients every day in his own practice. Fascinatingly, he saw that when someone feeds their body the correct nutrition and detoxifies from chemical waste, they can have amazing improvements in their health. After witnessing this simple response over and over again, Dr. Iverson realized that he had to share with the rest of the world what he was doing with his own patients. He needed to reach out and TEACH people how to heal that were so desperately seeking to have their health back.

This book unlocks Nature's secret message in a 21-day nutritional guide on how to heal your body and stay healthy in order to have the optimal health you were intended. It is based on observing how plants and animals survive in nature and applying those simple principles to human health and healing.

By reading Nature's Diet you will gain another perspective on widely debated fad diets like protein based Atkins diet versus vegetarian diets. You will learn why your multi-vitamin is more of a drug than a nutrient and what the effect of hidden food allergies may be having on your system. You will also learn about the effects of the thousands of environmental chemicals, like heavy metals, you are exposed to each day and how you can cleanse and detoxify them from your body. Every page is loaded with insightful information and fun facts including who should or shouldn't take bio-identical hormones, what you are missing in your life for sounder sleep, and even how to achieve more gratifying sex in a completely natural way. Nature's Diet is your key to living simply, consciously, and is attainable by every person -- naturally.

The answers you've been seeking to heal your body and stay healthy have always been available to you. If you are ready to live free of poor health, Nature's Diet is giving you a simple plan.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $17.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

As development and subsequent habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. But there is an important and simple step toward reversing this alarming trend: Everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity. There is an unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife — native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, the insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals. In many parts of the world, habitat destruction has been so extensive that local wildlife is in crisis and may be headed toward extinction.

Bringing Nature Home has sparked a national conversation about the link between healthy local ecosystems and human well-being, and the new paperback edition — with an expanded resource section and updated photos — will help broaden the movement. By acting on Douglas Tallamy's practical recommendations, everyone can make a difference.

HOW THE GOVERNMENT GOT IN YOUR BACKYARD

Biotechnology — the future or a genetic time bomb? Renewable fuels — the key to cleaner air or just corporate welfare? Greenhouse gasses — baking the earth to death or just a needless worry? Plant patents — improving gardens and farms or just profiteering? When you stop to think about it, the government has its hand in every important environmental issue. And with the left and the right raucously disagreeing about whether the government’s policies are for good or for evil, it’s impossible for a concerned citizen to know what to think.

How the Government Got in Your Backyard distills the science, the politics, and the unbiased, nonpartisan truth behind hot-button environmental issues from pesticides to global warming. By clearly representing what the left says, what the right says, what the science is, and what the facts are, Jeff Gillman and Eric Heberlig don’t set out to provide the answer — they light the path so concerned citizens can uncover their own true and informed opinion. In this season of political discontent, the unbiased truth about environmental policies — free of political agendas — is as refreshing as it is fascinating.

How the Government Got in Your Backyard is not for Republicans or Democrats, liberals or conservatives. It’s for anyone who is ready to get to the bottom line.

The typical American neighborhood is impersonal, made up of large houses on large lots, with large garages whose remote openers provide residents instant access inside. There’s never any need to see or be seen! The good news is that a growing number of homeowners are saying they want more. “Pocket neighborhoods” are alternative living arrangements that provide shelter and security, convenience, comfort and meaning. In a typical pocket neighborhood, parking is intentionally separated from houses, which surround a landscaped common area. Homeowners walk to their doors, past the neighbors they might otherwise never know. This book by architect and author Ross Chapin describes existing pocket neighborhoods and co-housing communities — and provides inspiration for creating new ones.

Spending money is the last thing anyone wants to do right now. We are in the midst of a massive cultural shift away from consumerism and toward a vibrant and very active countermovement that has been thriving on the outskirts for quite some time — do-it-yourselfers who make frugal, homemade living hip are challenging the notion that true wealth has anything to do with money. In Making It, authors Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen, who are at the forefront of this movement, provide readers with all the tools they need for this radical shift in home economics.

The projects range from simple to ambitious and include activities done in the home, in the garden, and out in the streets. With step-by-step instructions for a wide range of projects — from growing food in an apartment and building a ninety-nine-cent solar oven to creating safe, effective laundry soap for pennies a gallon and fishing in urban waterways — Making It will be the go-to source for post-consumer living activities that are fun, inexpensive and eminently doable. Within hours of buying this book, readers will be able to start transitioning into a creative, sustainable mode of living that is not just a temporary fad but a cultural revolution.

Richard Louv changed how we view and interact with nature in the New York Times best-seller Last Child in the Woods, which sparked an international movement to reconnect children with nature and introduced the term “nature-deficit disorder.” His new book The Nature Principle is a call to action for the rest of us to also reconnect with the natural world.

Does your daily nature intake include running on the treadmill with a forest scene on the TV monitor in front of you? Or perhaps playing Wii tennis with your kids — instead of playing on a real tennis court? We all — kids and adults alike — are suffering from “nature-deficit disorder.”

In The Nature Principle, Louv discusses how we can create a healthier balance between technology and nature, so that we can experience the best of technology and nature in our lives. He shows us how tapping into the restorative powers of the natural world can boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. As he says in his introduction, The Nature Principle is “about the power of living in nature — not with it, but in it. We are entering the most creative period in history. The twenty-first century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world.”

Cities, communities, and organizations around the country are embracing this movement. In fact, May 6 has officially been declared the Richard Louv and Children and Nature Day in the city of San Diego! Louv is giving a call to action to change the way we live, and how much better off we’ll be for it.

A quiet revolution is taking place: People across the United States are turning toward local food. Some are doing it because they want more nutritious, less-processed food; some want to preserve the farmland and rural character of their regions; some fear interruptions to the supply of non-local food; some want to support their local economy; and some want safer food with less threat of contamination. But this revolution comes with challenges.

Reclaiming Our Food tells the stories of people across America who are finding new ways to grow, process, and distribute food for their own communities. Their successes offer both inspiration and practical advice.

The projects described in this book are cropping up everywhere, from urban lots to rural communities and everywhere in between. In Portland, Oregon, an organization called Growing Gardens installs home gardens for low-income families and hosts follow-up workshops for the owners. Lynchburg Grows, in Lynchburg, Virginia, bought an abandoned 6.5-acre urban greenhouse business and turned it into an organic farm that offers jobs to people with disabilities and sells its food through a local farmers' market and a CSA. Sunburst Trout Farm, a small family business in rural North Carolina, is showing that it’s possible to raise fish sustainably and sell to a local market. And in Asheville, North Carolina, Growing Minds is finding ways to help bring fresh foods into schools. Author Tanya Denckla Cobb offers behind-the-scenes profiles of more than 50 food projects across the United States, with lessons and advice straight from their founders and staff. Photographic essays of 11 community food projects, by acclaimed photographer Jason Houston, detail the unusual work of these projects, bringing it to life in unforgettable images.

Reclaiming Our Food is a practical guide for building a local food system. Where others have made the case for the local food movement, Reclaiming Our Food shows how communities are actually making it happen. This book offers a wealth of information on how to make local food a practical and affordable part of everyone's daily fare.

Disasters often strike without warning and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. Yet armed with the right tools and information, survivors can fend for themselves and get through even the toughest circumstances. Matthew Stein's When Disaster Strikes provides a thorough, practical guide for how to prepare for and react in many of life's most unpredictable scenarios.

In this disaster-preparedness manual, he outlines the materials you'll need—from food and water, to shelter and energy, to first-aid and survival skills—to help you safely live through the worst. When Disaster Strikes covers how to find and store food, water, and clothing, as well as the basics of installing back-up power and lights. You’ll learn how to gather and sterilize water, build a fire, treat injuries in an emergency, and use alternative medical sources when conventional ones are unavailable.

Stein instructs you on the smartest responses to natural disasters—such as fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and floods—how to keep warm during winter storms, even how to protect yourself from attack or other dangerous situations. With this comprehensive guide in hand, you can be sure to respond quickly, correctly, and confidently when a crisis threatens.
