Stop Carrying the Weight of Your MS Book Excerpt:

Make your own rules for weight loss instead of breaking someone else’s! Losing weight doesn’t have to mean sacrificing happiness–especially when you want to do what’s best for your body and your MS. If you’re ready to make your health a top priority and find your individual answer to healing your body then Stop Carrying the Weight of Your MS is an essential piece of the puzzle. Losing weight is a known solution to slowing multiple sclerosis progression and making symptoms more manageable. But diets can be very complex and restrictive, leaving people to feel lacking and like they’re failing at staying healthy. The good news is losing weight doesn’t have to be like that. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000, Hanson found the key to lasting lifestyle change is making personally meaningful decisions. Building on books like Terry Wahls’ The Wahls Protocol, and other MS diet books, Hanson moves beyond intense diets and regimens to help her readers create a new way of eating that is sustainable and customizable.

Multiple Sclerosis Book Excerpt:

Because most people who are diagnosed with MS are between the ages of 15-55 years, the disease has a significant impact, not only on the individual with the disease, but also on the family members and loved ones whose lives are interwoven with them. Families experiencing multiple sclerosis often find themselves in uncharted territory. Prior patterns of interacting with each other may no longer work; roles often shift with dramatic emotional impact; guilt, anger, sadness, and a sense of burden may create a barrier to intimacy, joy, growth, and family unity. There are ways out of this debilitating situation, and many families have restored their balance, humor, productivity and family solidarity. Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for Families can lead the way for your family to strengthen its coping skills and to receive targeted information about the disease and its ramifications. This complete yet highly readable guide for families living with multiple sclerosis addresses these issues and more. Families must learn how to strike a reasonable balance between the interests and needs of its members, and to accommodate the limitations imposed by MS without allowing them to impact every aspect of family life. This is easier said than done, and extensive discussions consider how the basic goals of living with this chronic disease can be met.

Project 333 Book Excerpt:

Wear just 33 items for 3 months and get back all the JOY you were missing while you were worrying what to wear. In Project 333, minimalist expert and author of Soulful Simplicity Courtney Carver takes a new approach to living simply--starting with your wardrobe. Project 333 promises that not only can you survive with just 33 items in your closet for 3 months, but you'll thrive just like the thousands of woman who have taken on the challenge and never looked back. Let the de-cluttering begin! Ever ask yourself how many of the items in your closet you actually wear? In search of a way to pare down on her expensive shopping habit, consistent lack of satisfaction with her purchases, and ever-growing closet, Carver created Project 333. In this book, she guides readers through their closets item-by-item, sifting through all the emotional baggage associated with those oh-so strappy high-heel sandals that cost a fortune but destroy your feet every time you walk more than a few steps to that extensive collection of never-worn little black dresses, to locate the items that actually look and feel like you. As Carver reveals in this book, once we finally release ourselves from the cyclical nature of consumerism and focus less on our shoes and more on our self-care, we not only look great we feel great-- and we can see a clear path to make other important changes in our lives that reach far beyond our closets. With tips, solutions, and a closet-full of inspiration, this life-changing minimalist manual shows readers that we are so much more than what we wear, and that who we are and what we have is so much more than enough.
