Fret no more over choosing the perfect gift! In the Astrology Zone´s Gift Guide by Sign, Susan Miller suggests wonderful gifts appropriate for both men and women of each astrological sign. From fun ideas for those shopping on a budget, to guidelines for choosing those once-in-a-lifetime extravagances, these handy tips will guide you throughout the year. No doubt, gift giving is an art, and can be quite a creative, heartfelt expression of emotion. Most of us need a little help. How you approach gift giving says a lot about you, revealing what you value and how you view the one you love. A fine gift selection shows tender admiration, empathy, warmth or a host of other feelings for the recipient. A great gift is one that the recipient is thrilled to receive, doesn´t desperately need and never expected to get - and the element of surprise is also a worthy goal. After receiving a meaningful gift, the recipient feels more deeply understood - and closer - to the giver. If we are to delight, we need to spend time putting ourselves in the recipient´s shoes. Too often, the gifts we give reflect only our preferences and has not enough do with the recipient´s lifestyle or desires. On Valentine´s Day, more is riding on sending the right message and in creating the right outcome. That pressure can result in a less creative gift, such as ´´sure winners´´ - a box of chocolates and a card or a bouquet of flowers from the corner florist. While there´s nothing wrong with those gifts, if it looks to your beloved like your assistant selected it, it will always lack that extra bit of oomph and sexiness that can only come from you having spent a little time thinking about the gift. You´ll have to take a risk once in a while, too, for as they say, no risk, no reward. Here we go! Remember, listen to other suggestions, too. Some gifts are fanciful and expensive, while others are realistic, inexpensive and practical. It´s a list meant to get you thinking! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Miller.

This pH balanced diet can: Help body odor Fight cancer Prevent gout Relieve allergies and eczema Maintain healthy blood sugar levels (for diabetes) Clear acne And more! The normal body pH should be closely around 7.4. If the pH fluctuates too much from the ideal level, it becomes difficult for the various enzymes and the organs of the body to function properly, including the proper absorption of nutrients. pH Imbalance can kill you. You may also notice yourself getting sick a lot or experiencing body odor or, in extreme cases, developing diseases, including the formation of diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. This dangerous shift from a slightly alkaline to an acidic state of the body is often due to consuming too much acid-producing foods. On the other hand, too much alkalinity is also bad for your health, since that leads to calcium deposits in the body, which causes joint and nerve pain, insomnia, and early morning stiffness. Ideally, a person needs to eat around 75 to 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and, at the most, 20 percent acid-producing foods. Maintaining the proper level of pH in the body is the key to a healthier you. So what are you waiting for? Make the change now. This book will teach you how to jump-start your body on a pH-balanced diet and reduce your chances of developing diseases. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nina Price.

Good Clean Food:Shopping Smart to Avoid GMOs, rBGH, and Products That May Cause Cancer and Other Diseases Skyhorse Publishing Samuel Epstein, Beth Leibson
It was supposed to be a girls´ weekend in scenic St. George, Utah, that would include shopping, trying out the local cuisine, and participating in a breast cancer fund-raiser. The fact that one of the organizers of the fund-raising event, a local doctor, had disappeared two months before was not supposed to be Sadie Hoffmiller´s problem. When Sadie learns that her friend Caro and Caro´s cousin, Tess, have started a grassroots investigation into Dr. Hendrick´s disappearance, Sadie graciously refuses to be a part of it. With her wedding to plan and her most recent case still fresh in her mind, Sadie is determined to leave this case to the police - until she meets the ex-wife of the missing man. How could she not ask a few questions...that lead to more questions...that lead to a small town and even more questions? When the local police ask her to be their eyes and ears, Sadie can´t help but jump in with both feet. Before she knows it, she is on the rocky road of another investigation and following a convoluted trail of good intentions, hidden motivations, and philanthropy turned big business. 1.

FOREWORD by Craig Kielburger, Free the Children Foundation. When the Children´s Wish Foundation approached lovely 13-year-old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis, they offered her the wish of a lifetime. You can do anything, they said: A Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A $5,000 shopping spree? To those who knew her, it came as no surprise that none of these things were on Maddie´s wish list. But she did know exactly what she wanted. She had been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned children in an African village whose suffering was made all the more tragic because of inadequate shelter, lack of food, and clean drinking water. Maddie´s wish? To ease the plight of these children, halfway across the world. With the money from the foundation, Maddie built the village orphans a shelter and a school, and she provided food and clean water. But this was just the start. Despite being bedridden, and then hospital-bound by her disease, until her dying day Maddie became an indefatigable fundraiser for her children. Maddie was recognized, in life and posthumously, with a number of awards, honors, and memorials. But, until the end, all that was important to her was providing hope and future to the village children who had filled her heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Crawford.

Where is your sugar coming from? Most likely everywhere. Sure, it´s in ice cream and cookies, but what scared Eve O. Schaub was the secret world of sugar - hidden in bacon, crackers, salad dressing, pasta sauce, chicken broth, and baby food. With her eyes open by the work of obesity expert Dr. Robert Lustig and others, Eve challenged her husband and two school-age daughters to join her on a quest to eat no added sugar for an entire year. Along the way, Eve uncovered the real costs of our sugar-heavy American diet including diabetes, obesity, and increased incidences of health problems such as heart disease and cancer. The stories, tips, and recipes she shares throw fresh light on questionable nutritional advice we´ve been following for years and show that it is possible to eat at restaurants and go grocery shopping - with less and even no added sugar.

In Had I Known, the former host of Good Morning America, health advocate, international speaker, mother of seven, grandmother of one, and New York Times best-selling author Joan Lunden speaks candidly about her battle against breast cancer, her quest to learn about it and teach others, and the transformative effect it has had on her life. With a large extended family counting on her, giving up was not an option. After announcing her diagnosis of stage two triple negative breast cancer on Good Morning America, people all over the country rallied around Joan as she went into warrior mode. Joan appeared on the cover of People bald, showing the world her brave resolve and that breast cancer does not need to define you. Joan´s illness has changed her in profoundly unexpected ways and has redefined her values and, most of all, her health. Following a new clean and healthy way of eating, Joan became her best advocate by taking control of her nutrition, which helped combat the adverse side effects of chemotherapy like a warrior. Uncharacteristically vulnerable, irreverent, and straight from the heart, Had I Known is a deeply personal and powerful story of pain, persistence, and perseverance in which Joan openly evaluates her decision to go public with her battle, shaving her head, wig shopping, reconnecting with her viewers, rediscovering her purpose, and ultimately realizing that sometimes you have to look back to move forward. 1.
