No More Allergies

by Gary Null

If you have a really strong immune system, your lymphocytes and phagocytes are able to engulf and digest antigens. Therefore, to eliminate allergic responses we must strengthen our immune systems." He then proceeds to offer advice on exactly which foods will help build up your immune system and which to avoid, which supplements to take, and what other steps you can do to fight back against allergies naturally.Complete with dozens of allergy-fighting recipes and inspiring testimonials, this is a must-have book for anyone suffering from any kind of allergy.

No More Cancer

by Gary Null

One word strikes more fear into a person's mind than any other: CANCER.
