Find out the Gifts that Should be on Every Kids’ Wish List this Holiday Season

Now, we have the expert with a real ‘history’ for helping people find the perfect gifts for their kids. In fact, Aileen Avery has studied and written about both the psychology and history behind gift giving in her popular book GIFT RAP: The History and Art of Gift Giving. Just in time for the holidays, Avery will use her unique expertise to provide gift suggestions that kids will love and parents can appreciate.

Avery can also share some insight into the history of gift giving. For instance, Christmas honors the birth of Jesus Christ that evolved over two millennia into a worldwide religious and secular celebration, incorporating many pagan traditions into the festivities along the way. Also, learn how Germany started the Christmas tree tradition, as we now know it, in the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes. Some built Christmas pyramids of wood and decorated them with evergreens and candles if wood was scarce. In the past, Avery also co-hosted the HGTV show “I WANT THAT!” which highlighted the hottest “must-haves” products for the home. She is the creator of www.giftexpert.org, which features excerpts from her book and gift advice.

12/1 DR. JOHN DOUILLARD, EAT WHEAT, JEANA LEE TAHNK, GIFTS AND TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS, CATE KORTZEBORN, MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT

DR. JOHN DOUILLARD – AUTHOR, EAT WHEAT: A SCIENTIFIC AND CLINICALLY-PROVEN APPROACH TO SAFELY BRINGING WHEAT AND DAIRY BACK INTO YOUR DIET

LET THEM EAT WHEAT!

NBA Nutrition Doc's Expert Tips To Bring Wheat/Dairy Back Into Your Diet

Eating gluten- and dairy-free has taken the health food industry by storm. Food manufacturers are realizing that, unless they offer a gluten-free version of their product, it’s increasingly difficult to be competitive. Studies show that within a single year, as many as 100 million Americans consume gluten-free products. Non-dairy foods and milk substitutes have become increasingly common. In 2015, the U.S. dairy alternatives market was worth 2.09 billion, and growing.

But, how could we not have the genetics to eat wheat? We have been eating it for 3-4 million years! And in just 10,000 years of eating dairy, many have genetically adapted to digest lactose – proof that the human body adapts to digest the foods we eat. After almost 4 million years, it seems impossible that we haven’t genetically adapted to eating wheat.

Enter: Dr. John Douillard, DC, CAP, former NBA nutrition expert, who has spent the past 30 years and has seen more than 100,000 patients in his natural health practice, helping to improve their digestive systems and begin to eat wheat again. He’s sharing his findings in his new book, Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back into Your Diet (Morgan James, January 2017).

ABOUT DR. DOUILLARD:
Dr. John Douillard, DC, CAP, is a globally recognized leader in the fields of natural health, Ayurveda and sports medicine. Over the past 30 years, he’s helped over 100,000 patients repair their digestive system and eat wheat and dairy again. He is the creator of LifeSpa.com, a leading Ayurvedic health and wellness resource on the web with over 4.5 million views on YouTube. LifeSpa.com is evolving the way Ayurveda is understood around the world, with over 700 articles and videos proving ancient wisdom backed by modern science. Dr. John is the former Director of Player Development and nutrition advisor for the New Jersey Nets NBA team, author of seven books, a repeat guest on the Dr. Oz show, and has been featured in Woman’s World Magazine, Yoga Journal, the Huffington Post and dozens of other publications.


Eat Wheat will be released on January 10, 2017. It can be pre-ordered from Eat Wheat Book Amazon and all major booksellers.
