"Autobiography of a Drinker", 2009

Paramhansa Yogananda


"A book with a delightfully witty humor that explains the reasons behind yoga and the opportunities for development hidden in it, using the example of the great masters and the author's own life. A worthwhile read both for broadening your horizons and for deeper experiences.” Ingvar Villido, kriya yoga teacher.

"The Autobiography of a Drinker" is both surprising and demystifying. It is not very often that a great yogi of the caliber of Paramhansa Yogananda writes down his own biography, thereby lifting the veil of mystery and mysticism that generally surrounds the teaching of yoga and yogis. Yogananda gives a warm and heartfelt account of his childhood and family, Indian holy men and teachers, his years of study with his guru, and his long-kept secret teachings on self-realization. On this journey, the impossible becomes possible. The knowledge stored in these teachings about the laws governing human life, which Yogananda gradually opens, also helps a person with a more skeptical mindset to understand and accept the strange.

"Smart nutrition", 2009

Ian Marber


Smart nutrition is a revolutionary approach to a very popular nutrition topic today, which allows you to get the maximum benefit from the food you eat. Ian Marber's experiences as The Food Doctor led him to question the effects of single nutrients while neglecting nutrient interactions. He has long rejected the so-called one-step method of nutrition: for example, if you are concerned about bone health, eat more calcium, because in fact, in order to benefit from extra calcium, you need to consume the right amount of magnesium. He helps the reader understand the principles of smart nutrition by delving into each nutrient separately and pointing out which other nutrients enhance or reduce the effect of this nutrient; he applies the principles of smart nutrition to specific areas and studies many foods to find which other foods should be combined with them for optimal effect.

"Teachings of miraculous doctors", 2010

Jon Barron


People go to the doctor with their chronic ailments and pains and get the standard treatment: drugs and surgery. Joints ache? We will put new ones. Back is aching? Take the medicine. And if it doesn't help, then they are sent to a surgeon. Conventional doctors don't talk about the toxic load that most of us carry in our bodies, which is the emotional source of trauma and stress, or how our food can cause dangerous inflammation. All of these things cause ill health and disease, but conventional medicine does not adequately address these issues. Food and mood - they are taken out of the equation and replaced by drugs and surgeries.

The illumination of the cell leads to the illumination of the DNA within the cell, giving us access to the universal wisdom hidden within its matrix. By aligning our microcosm [cell] with the macrocosm [universal energies], we begin to surface our true selves and realize our great potential.



"The right food according to your body type", 2010

His theory and recipes are based on Ayurveda, a science of life that is over 5,000 years old. The book contains a lot of instructive instructions about nutrition according to your body type, but there is no direct prohibition and command, and no one is hanged on the post of shame. The reader is not necessarily expected to have a deep interest in Ayurveda, this teaching in all its originality and wisdom is simply an effective aid on the way to the harmony of mind and body.

I like spending time at home, in my childhood village, working in the garden with my boss, Mother Nature, and watching all the wonderful vegetables sprout from the soil.”
