Books and Videos

There are lots of books and and videos on the market about health…possibly more than any other topic, other than self-help. Unfortunately, most of them don’t really give you the core facts of what it takes to get your body healthy…they are trying to sell you on their “approach” or “program” to get healthy and/or lose weight. While they might be well-intentioned, they don’t really address the issue of true health…eating the right food and changing your habits.

So to help you navigate through this sea of information in books, we have compiled a list of some books we believe really hit the nail on the head and give you some great information that really works. We will continually update this list…this should get you started learning more of the right information about your body, food, and lifelong optimal health.

VIDEOS

  • Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead
    • 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope.It is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
  • Food Matters
    • Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food – Hippocrates. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide sickness industry and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally. The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments.
  • Hungry For Change
    • This video exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industry don’t want you to know about; deceptive strategies designed to keep you coming back for more. Find out what’s keeping you from having the body and health you deserve and how to escape the diet trap forever.
  • Ingredients
    • This is a journey that reveals the people behind the movement to bring good food back to the table and health back to our communities. At the focal point of this movement, and of this film, are the farmers and chefs who are creating a truly sustainable food system. Their collaborative work has resulted in great tasting food and an explosion of consumer awareness about the benefits of eating local.
  • Forks Over Knives
    • This movie examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet.
  • Food Inc
    • They examine the costs of putting value and convenience over nutrition and environmental impact. He takes his camera into slaughterhouses and factory farms where chickens grow too fast to walk properly, cows eat feed pumped with toxic chemicals, and illegal immigrants risk life and limb to bring these products to market at an affordable cost.
  • Supersize Me
    • His experiment…to eat nothing but three McDonalds meals a day every day for 30 consecutive days, provides an entertaining and occasionally disturbing narrative thread that allows for informative and engaging tangents about American culture’s disturbing trend toward obesity.
  • The Beautiful Truth
    • Fascinated, Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures. It has been said that more people live off cancer than die from it. The Beautiful Truth is a movie that can put a stop to this travesty. Here is a very practical guide to the intensive nutritional treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases that many would consider to have been impossible to obtain.
  • Bought
    • This is all about the hidden story behind vaccines, drugs, and food. You peel back the layers and see what’s really driving our industrialized food, our vaccine expansion, and our dependence on pharmaceuticals – it’s the same culprit.
  • Doctored
    • This is an investigation in the “monopoly” of the medical industrial complex and how Americans are viewed as patients. A visit to the doctor can be traumatic enough. Now we learn about the “influencers” – the people you never see, but whose job it is to turn you into a compliant, pill popping, revenue generation unit. It reveals the unseen tactics of these “influencers” in an investigation that leads to the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and reveals an alarming portrait of deception and criminality.

NOTE: We don’t have any connection or economic benefit to recommending these resources…we just agree with the message they are sharing and their approach to health.
