In 1998, author Paul Huljich was diagnosed by psychiatrists as suffering from Bipolar Disorder, also known as manic depression. That year, he experienced a full mental breakdown, lost his rights as a citizen and was made a ward of the state.

Informed that there was no cure, that he would eventually relapse, and that he would be dependent on medication for the rest of his life, Huljich traveled to the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment and later admitted himself to the Menninger Clinic in Kansas to more fully understand and address his condition. Aided by research and his background in organic foods, Huljich developed a diet, exercise, and wellness plan that would help him end his dependence on medication to cure himself and find true peace of mind.

Since the year 2000, Huljich has not taken any psychotropic or psychiatric medication or any medication related to mental illness. Nor has he suffered any relapse of depression or manic depression, or received further treatment from any psychiatrist, therapist, or doctor regarding mental illness. He has never felt better.

From Women’s Health contributor and yoga expert Kathryn Budig—the essential, authoritative guide to yoga, for beginners and beyond.
Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can’t rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.
Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique—burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It’s proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain—stress—which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.

A new epidemic is sweeping the country. Some people call it “ADHD,” “scatter brain,” or “brain fog.” And some people simply say they “just don’t feel like themselves”—and haven’t for a long time.

People are thinking and feeling worse than ever. Why? Because our brains are not getting the support they need to produce the essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, and inspired. In fact, if you look at the way that most of us live, it’s almost as though we had chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry.

Fortunately, there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is a three-week program designed to help you naturally restore three of your brain’s most crucial chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these three brain chemicals will, in turn, enable the rest of your brain’s chemistry to reach optimal levels. You will find yourself thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. You will also find yourself feeling more optimistic, calm, energized, connected, and inspired.

The good news is that this is easier than you think. Instead of trying to ambitiously overhaul one aspect of your life entirely with some difficult-to-maintain resolution, begin by making small and achievable changes in many different areas of your life.
