Falling In Love Works Better Than Prozac
Jessica R Gera
The author takes her readers through a journey of the “4B’s”. Bruised, Broken, Bitter, Better. Through explaining her own personal story of heartfelt truth peppered with astute humour, wit and reflection on being an East-Indian twenty-somehing divorcee who meets with ovarian cancer, Gera reminds us that only the most courageous will choose to get ‘better’ over ‘bitter,’ even in our most trying times. While Gera’s book does not concentrate on endometriosis in particular, her story reminds us that our hardships should never dictate our happiness.
Regardless of your hardship, this is a story that anyone can relate to. You lost your job after 20 years of being with the same company? Your kids hurt you? Your parents hurt you? You became ill? Then what? How do we choose better over bitter? Do we truly understand the fundamental relationship between our mental and physical health? How do we put ourselves together once we’ve ‘broke?’
This is an ideal read for anyone who is looking for an inspirational story, a ‘pick me up’ and a reason to laugh out loud! For more information: www.jessicargera.com

This comprehensive presentation of the findings from the China Study conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Referred to as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” by The New York Times, this study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in 65 counties, representing 2,500 counties across rural China and Taiwan. While revealing that proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as obesity, this text calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs, such as the Atkins diet, that enjoy widespread popularity in the West. The impact of the politics of nutrition and the efforts of special interest groups on the creation and dissemination of public information on nutrition are also discussed.
Vibrant health, dazzling beauty, a great body, fulfilling relationships, amazing sex and inner peace—what woman wouldn’t want these things? But chasing the latest diet craze and burying ourselves in beauty products isn’t really helping us achieve better bodies and minds. It’s time to trade in the fads and expand your healthy lifestyle beyond yoga and pilates with one of the most enduring and popular diets in the world.
For women for whom looking good means feeling good, macrobiotic chef and cooking instructor Jessica Porter offers fresh, contemporary, and accessible insight into a dietary practice that has been invigorating women’s health for generations. Cooking tips and recipes are combined with Jessica’s no-nonsense philosophy and witty anecdotes to create a book that will inspire you to hit the kitchen armed with the tools you need to strengthen your mind and body through food.
