New Self, New World challenges the primary story of what it means to be human, the random and materialistic lifestyle that author Philip Shepherd calls our “shattered reality.” This reality encourages us to live in our heads, self-absorbed in our own anxieties. Drawing on diverse sources and inspiration, New Self, New World reveals that our state of head-consciousness falsely teaches us to see the body as something we possess and to try to take care of it without ever really learning how to inhabit it. Shepherd articulates his vision of a world in which each of us enjoys a direct, unmediated experience of being alive. He petitions against the futile pursuit of the “known self” and instead reveals the simple grace of just being present. In compelling prose, Shepherd asks us to surrender to the reality of “what is” that enables us to reunite with our own being. Each chapter is accompanied by exercises meant to bring Shepherd’s vision into daily life, what the author calls a practice that “facilitates the voluntary sabotage of long-standing patterns.” New Self, New World is at once a philosophical primer, a spiritual handbook, and a roaming inquiry into human history.

Do you have back pain? Back pain is not normal and can be helped with Chiropractic, Laser and Weight Loss.
Back pain, especially lower back pain, is a constant for many people. Chiropractors have always been known as “back pain doctors” to a certain degree, and while they can treat a much wider range of ailments, this moniker is certainly true. Chiropractic care and Laser Therapy for back pain includes a range of individualized treatments designed to remove the pain permanently.
One estimate places the number of back pain sufferers in America at roughly 31 million.
Here are some other interesting facts that illustrate just how serious the problem is:
- A 2010 report entitled Global Burden of Disease placed lower back pain as the leading cause of disability around the world.
- Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work days and the second-leading reason for doctor’s visits behind infections in the upper-respiratory tract.
- 50 percent of all working Americans say they experience back pain symptoms each year.
- Mechanical issues cause the majority of back pain cases, meaning they are not the result of an underlying health condition.
- Conservatively, Americans spend about $50 billion on back pain.
- Some experts say that as much as 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
Why Do I Have Back Pain?
The causes of back pain can vary quite a bit. With so many muscles, bones, ligaments, and joints all working together in a complex structure, strains and other injuries leading to back pain are common. You may be experiencing back pain due to improper lifting, poor posture, stress, being overweight, a past sports injury, or a car accident. Conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis also cause back pain, as does disease that originates in certain internal organs.
Chiropractic to the Rescue
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to treat many types of back pain. With proper chiropractic care for back pain, you will have greater mobility and fewer flare ups. For many patients eliminating the side effects of prescription pain medication is a welcomed benefit they never even considered. Chiropractic treatment focuses on the underlying cause of the back pain while most conventional treatments focus on the symptoms. When only treating the symptom or the pain you may experience relief, but whatever is causing that pain will still be there.
Reputable chiropractors will also suggest lifestyle changes you can make to help prevent back pain from returning. These include maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding prolonged sitting, staying active throughout your life, staying hydrated, wearing low-heel shoes, stretching your body, and using proper body posture. By helping yourself and receiving high quality chiropractic care, back pain should be a thing of the past.

How to burn fat and lose weight fast!
Ready to find out how to lose belly fat and lose weight fast? There are two major fuel sources that the body uses – stored sugar and fat. The Fat burning hormones trigger the fat in the body which is then absorbed by the fat enzymes and release ketones (which is an efficient source of energy). Fat making hormones trigger the storage of sugar and convert sugar into fat. Most people are burning sugar which then converts to glucose and not burning fat – lose weight fast (cut the sugar/carbs).
The single most important factor that determines whether a person burns belly fat or sugar is the hormone Insulin. Even in a smaller amount Insulin can stop the body from burning belly fat. Insulin (or Sugar) has to be zero in order to burn fat fast. Ketosis is the healthiest fat burning foods for the heart, brain. For Ketosis, Carbohydrates has to be 5-10%, Proteins should be 25%, Fats should be 65-80% in a daily diet.
