Reach Your Ideal Body Weight and Stay There
“Her powerful 8-step process offers a path for readers to not only release weight, but to follow their passion and discover their personal greatness.” —Dr. Francois Sauer, MD, author of Relearn, Evolve and Adapt
Heal the root cause of overeating and reshape your body, restore your energy, and reboot your life. The 8 to Your IdealWeight diet-free program is a tried-and-true sugar-free diet, based on an eight-step program that helps you reach your ideal body weight goal—and, most importantly, stay there.
Why do most diets fail? Because mental preparation is the most important first step—and most diets neglect this essential mind-body aspect. Because of this, MK Mueller’s journey to her ideal weight was forty years in the making with a trail of unsuccessful attempts in her wake.
The mind body connection. MK Mueller is a former binge eater and domestic violence survivor who at the age of 34 put together a program for her own recovery and began a support group in her home called “Taking Care of Me.” Almost overnight the group outgrew her living room, and she became an international trainer and TEDx speaker, working with schools, health care organizations, and Fortune 500 companies.
Find your ideal body weight and stay there. With her encouragement and gentle guidance, you can let go of the burden of living life as a weight number and reclaim your self-esteem and personal power. Her program is not about losing weight but “releasing” pounds that no longer serve you, that hold you back and drag you down, make you feel bad about yourself and leave you vulnerable to health risks. Adjust your attitude first, then adjust the way you eat.
Also read MJ Mueller's award-winning Taking Care of Me: The Habits of Happiness, and 8 to Great: The Powerful Process for Positive Change, which are the foundation for the acclaimed 8 to Great curriculum for schools as well as the life-changing 8 to Your IdealWeight program.
Battle OCD With Insight and Inspiration
Both a book and a heart-stopping memoir that provides anxiety relief and gives comfort to those struggling to better understand themselves and their mental health.
The tapping and counting and cleaning and ordering brought her comfort and structure, two things lacking in Kirsten Pagacz’s family life. But it never lasted. The loathsome self-talk only intensified, and the rituals she had to perform got more bizarre. By high school, she was anorexic and a substance abuser─common "shadow syndromes" of OCD. By adulthood, she could barely hide her problems and held onto jobs and friends through sheer grit. Help finally came in the form of a miraculously well-timed public service announcement on NPR about OCD─at last, her illness had an identity.
"It's like the meanest, wildest monkey running around my head, constantly looking for ways to bite me." That was how Kirsten Pagacz described her OCD to her therapist on their first session when she was well into her 30s─she'd been following orders from this mean taskmaster for 20 years, without understanding why. After finally having the answer and learning how to conquer her OCD, Pagacz wants to share her knowledge and insight with you in hopes that you join her in leaving the OCD circus and living a better life.
Leaving the OCD Circus reveals the story of Pagacz's traumatic childhood and the escalation of her disorder. Learn how OCD works to misshape a life from a very young age and the various tools she used to deal with and heal her anxiety.
Gain insight into:
- The benefits of meditation and yoga
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Exposure therapy
If you learned from guides like Anxious for Nothing, The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook, or The Anxiety and Worry Workbook then you’ll want to read Leaving the OCD Circus.
A naturopathic approach to sexual health for any woman, man, or couple
The Naturopathic Approach to Fertility offers empathy for every woman’s pain and frustration, along with natural healing wisdom. Each of the ten intimate issues is treated in a separate chapter, beginning with a clear, concise explanation of the health challenge and its possible causes. Then for each condition, women will receive a comprehensive natural therapy program—including herbal supplements, dietary changes, essential oils, and more—that Dr. Julissa recommends.
Like every responsible health professional, Dr. Julissa knows it’s not possible to customize a specific treatment regimen for general readers; for any patient, effective healing requires a thorough in-person checkup and in-depth personal evaluation. She does, however, share powerful and inspiring testimonials from her patients—women who credit Dr. Julissa’s natural therapies with overcoming their reproductive and sexual health challenges, and enriching their lives with vitality, self-confidence, and joy.
Don’t Let Your Innermost Emotions Stop Your Potential
Goodbye, Hurt & Pain is a unique guide that applies a cutting-edge approach to using revolutionary science to teach you how to discover your hidden feelings and turn them from negative to positive.
Emotions are invisible, taken for granted, and dismissed much of the time─a paradox given they are some of the most powerful forces on Earth. They inflame wars, induce death, inspire invention, and control stock markets. More importantly, each of us has them─all the time.
Blocked feelings block potential. Deborah Sandella uses advanced neuroscience research and her revolutionary Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM) technique to show how blocked feelings prevent us from getting what we want. She introduces a process that bypasses logic and thinking to activate our own emotional "self-cleaning oven." Using imagination, color, and shape to visualize feelings and get straight to the root of longstanding problems, she teaches us to:
- Move destructive feelings envy out of the body
- Let go of old feelings and traumatic memories
- Feel and look like the best version of ourselves
Discover the seven organic ways of using your feelings to attract more love, better health, and greater success. Become better in all aspects of your life with your personal guide to unlocking the ultimate version of you.
If you enjoyed books like The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, The Book of Joy, or Atomic Habits, then you’ll want to read Goodbye, Hurt & Pain.

Stop Being Manipulated by the Animal Foods Industry
Stop the meat industry from eating into your wallet. Few Americans are aware of the realities of the economic system that supports our country's supply of animal foods. Yet these forces affect us in ways we can hardly imagine. Though we only fork over a few dollars per pound of meat products at the grocery store, we end up paying much more than that in tax dollar-fueled government subsidies—$38 billion more, to be exact. And that's just one layer of hidden costs. But with the help of sustainability advocate and author David Robinson Simon's Meatonomics, we can come up with informed, lasting solutions.
Improve your health, your life—and the world. Animal food producers influence our buying choices with artificially low prices, misleading messages, and heavy legislation and regulation control. But learning how these forces work can help you improve both your personal life and the world in so many important ways. Life-changing foods like those in a plant-based diet will do more than just improve your waistline. The information in Meatonomics can help you save money, lose weight, live longer, boost your health, protect animals and the planet from abuse, and preserve rural communities worldwide.
Learn to make better, more informed decisions on what to buy and how to eat. In Meatonomics, Dr. David Robinson Simon uses his excellent truth-finding skills, garnered from his expertise as a lawyer, to show you:
- How government marketing is influencing what we think of as healthy eating
- Just how much of our money is being burnt through by the meat production industry
- What we can do to change ourselves and our country for the better
If you were fascinated by sustainable food and healthy eating books like Proteinaholic, Eating Animals, or How Not to Die, you'll be empowered to overcome the meat industry's manipulation with Meatonomics.
