Best of the Mediterranean Action Plan (55 page pdf) - 9.95untitled.bmp (1574 bytes)  
The Mediterranean diet solidifies its claim as the best long-term dietary lifestyle
choice because its balance of lean protein and fish, copious fruits/vegetables,
and healthy fats furthers the "never eat a carb alone" and "eat real food" mantras. 
The Mediterranean diet has myriad variations (twelve to be exact). We have taken
the best of them all and put into a "Clifs notes" version. Along with lifestyle tips,
Best of the Mediterranean boasts pantry staples and over 100 recipes that appeal
to any intolerance or allergy. If you do not want this plan emailed, contact us.

Eye-Mazing Vision Protection Action Plan (13 page pdf) - 9.95untitled.bmp (1574 bytes)
"Dear Bonnie, I must give credit where credit is due. A few months ago, I downloaded your
Eye-Mazing Action Plan for a friend who had just been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration.
Her left eye was especially bad. After reading your article, she purchased all the necessary supplements for her condition.
She saw her eye doctor this past week who could not believe the improvement in her left eye.
She asked him if he thought the supplements were helping. He, of course, would not actually
say they were helping her, but told her to continue using them. He was shocked at the improvement
as he has never seen this "reversal" before. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My friend felt despondent a few months ago but is now especially happy she can see again!
Thankfully there are people like you out there who bring hope to those in need. Sincerely, Norah K."

self-help tips to assure that you are doing everything possible to maintain optimal eye health.

Nutrition and Lifestyle Strategies for Cancer Prevention (21 page pdf) - 9.95untitled.bmp (1574 bytes)

Most of you have a cancer story to tell. It is a disease that has touched all of us one way or another.
The word "cancer" is so formidable because while billions have gone into research,
finding a cure remains elusive. Many experts say that 50% of cancers are preventable. 

Vigilance, in the form of prevention, is the one aspect we can control. While there are
certainly no guarantees, implementing cancer prevention strategies can only help,
as well as contribute to your overall well-being.

We have put together the best clinical and research cancer prevention data in the form of
a
 self-help Action Plan, Nutrition and Lifestyle Strategies for Cancer Prevention. 
Our Action Plan presents over 15 cancer prevention strategies, whether or not you
have cancer in your family history. While the Action Plan is appropriate for cancer survivors,
it is not recommended for those going through cancer treatment.
