Beating Patellar Tendonitis
Martin Koban - 2013
The author’s story: “Back when I suffered from patellar tendonitis, I thought I was doing everything possible to treat this injury. I was stretching regularly, warming up before games, strengthening my legs, and doing whatever else doctors suggested might help. However, the pain never stopped. Sure, some days were better than others were, but I was still in pain and my athletic performance was severely handicapped. I was frustrated with my lack of progress, and I couldn’t believe that for all the effort and dedication I put into my training, I was being punished with pain that was impossible to get rid of. The worst part was that every time I thought I had made progress, the pain returned. The whole experience was so depressing that I almost quit playing my sport. Today, my knees are completely pain-free. I can play my favorite sports and train exercises that are extremely tough on my knees, such as deep single-leg squats, without having to worry about knee pain. I would have never imagined this to be possible. Today, my legs are stronger than before my injury, and the best part is that I know exactly how I can continue to get them into even better shape without any risk. The reason I struggled with patellar tendonitis for so long wasn’t my fault. I already knew some of the things I had to do, but to beat the odds, I needed to fix a number of hidden causes for patellar tendonitis and learn how to strengthen my weakened knees without reinjuring them. It took 3 years of research and self-experimentation to collect this knowledge, but now it is easily available in this book.” – Martin Koban, Author of Total Knee Health The reason people struggle with healing jumper’s knee is because they’re using an outdated treatment approach that is based on research just as outdated. Your rehab efforts are doomed to fail if you don’t eliminate all hidden causes for patellar tendonitis. These often ignored causes determine how much stress you patellar tendon is subjected to when you’re moving and if you don’t correct them, you will continue to overload your patellar tendon and the injury will simply reappear.Beating Patellar Tendonitis will hand you a proven treatment formula to fix these hidden causes of jumper’s knee and give you the tools you need to stay pain-free for life. The advice in this book is based on 3 years of self-experimentation through trial and error, hundreds of research studies published in academic journals, and the combined knowledge of thought leaders in the fitness industry. You Need to Buy This Book If: You’re an athlete with patellar tendonitis and you want to set new personal records You want to get rid of tendonitis knee pain once and for all You play volleyball, basketball, or any other sport that requires a lot of jumping and you want to stay on top of your competition You’re an athletic trainer and want your clients to stay healthy You’re a doctor and want to learn more ways how you can help your patients beat patellar tendonitis

Get ready to relish in the brilliance of the kitchen miracle that surgeons shun and doctors disgrace.A sea of unknown, unrevealed information awaits you. This book will act as your guide, so that you will soon be able to harness the full power of cayenne - the herb I once took for granted, and the herb that I now owe my health.Everyone out there seems to be promoting good health. Well, that's great. Good health is something that needs to be promoted. You need herbs, not drugs. You need nature, not synthetics. You need to use the proven, natural, side-affect-free healers that the earth is full of, not the clear, cold liquids that scientists processed through a test tube.If I had the time, I'd drive from house to house, shaking people out of their beds and telling them to wake up to the miracles of cayenne. But I can't, so I've got the next best thing.This report, which I've been compiling for a while, is brimming with the fiery brilliance of cayenne and all that I've found out about it.For example, cayenne has been known to cure 17 big diseases. It has been known to stop a heart attack in a matter of minutes. It can sharpen your vision better than the most powerful contact lenses available. It can expand your arteries like anything, giving the blood room to really flow and travel everywhere, from your arms (giving you strength) to your brain (giving you better brainpower). It can cure arthritis and much, much more.If your heart can't pump enough blood to a certain area, take cayenne pepper.Because if you're on prescription medications, you could take up to a year (or more!) to heal. But if you take cayenne, you could cut it down to a month or two.Did you know that if you take garlic in the right proportions, you can bring your blood pressure back to normal in three months?Well, if you add cayenne, you could cut that down to three days.Cayenne can unclog your kidneys and your sinuses, allow you to breathe freely and restore broken, bleeding gums to normal. Cayenne, in short, is a kitchen miracle.I owe my health to cayenne. I hope that by reading this report, you soon will too.To your health,Sharon Daniels

The Hunter/Farmer Diet Solution: Do You Have the Metabolism of a Hunter or a Farmer? Find Out...and Achieve Your Health and Weight-Loss Goals
Mark Liponis - 2012
Other than wanting to perform invasive surgical procedures, most doctors offer little help. Their advice is usually “Eat less, exercise more,” which falls back on the outdated dogma of calories in/calories out. Medical research on dieting is confusing and often contradictory. Not only are physicians unsure about which weight-loss plan is best, but their patients are, too! It has become an “every one for him- or herself” situation, where we’re forced to experiment, hoping to hit on the magic weight-loss formula by chance . . . and the increasing number of fad diets makes our odds of picking the right weight-loss plan even less likely. Why can’t the medical industry make sense of the overload of information and give us sound advice that actually enables people to lose weight and improve their health? Fortunately, recent studies have shined a new light on the subject and may finally help us understand a successful way to diet. This research proves what many men and women have learned through trial and error: some do better on a low-carb diet, and others do better on a low-fat diet. This is because some people have the metabolism of a hunter, while others have the metabolism of a farmer. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Mark Liponis, a leading expert in preventive and integrative medicine, will show you how to determine which type you are so that you can lose weight and improve your health at the same time. Once you know your type, you’ll be on the road to successful weight loss and greater health and well-being!

If you can't make the hefty payments on your survival retreat, the bankers will evict you, leaving you worse off than those who failed to prepare in the first place.

But he has called his trailer home for the past four years and says that "for the first time in my life, I'm actually content." Living off the grid in a travel trailer isn't for everyone. But if you are looking for a way to own a debt-free home--and enjoy the security that comes with it--here's the author's dirt-cheap plan for finding suitable land; buying a used trailer; securing it against the elements and intruders; providing alternative power sources; dealing with water and waste issues; maximizing your space; and establishing a workable storage system for food, water, medicine, tools, and other equipment.
