This ancient Time Lord manual has been kicking around the TARDIS for thousands of years, giving the Doctor plenty of time to 'improve' it with scribbles, doodles and post-it notes as a gift for his successor, the Twelfth Doctor. He's even ripped out the middle of the book and replaced it with a scrapbook packed with everything important to our hero, and how to be just like him! So if you have ever wondered if you'd cut it in the Time Lord Academy, how to fly the TARDIS, or the correct way to dip a fish finger into custard, this is the book for you! Essential reading for all aspiring Time Lords!
Diabetes - No More!
Author: Andreas Moritz
According to this bestselling author, diabetes is not a disease; in the vast majority of cases, it is a complex mechanism of protection or survival that the body chooses to avoid the possibly fatal consequences of an unhealthful diet and lifestyle. Despite the body's ceaseless self-preservation efforts (which we call diseases), millions of people suffer or die unnecessarily from such consequences. The imbalanced blood sugar level in diabetes is but a symptom of illness, not the illness itself. By developing diabetes, the body is neither doing something wrong nor is it trying to commit suicide. The current diabetes epidemic is man-made, or rather, factory-made, and, therefore, can be halted and reversed through simple but effective changes in diet and lifestyle. Diabetes - No More provides you with essential information on the various causes of diabetes and how anyone can avoid them. To stop the diabetes epidemic we need to create the right circumstances that allows the body to heal. Just as there is a mechanism to become diabetic, there is also a mechanism to reverse it. Find out how!
