DMT: The Spirit Molecule

Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland, considered by Hindus to be the site of the seventh chakra and by René Descartes to be the seat of the soul.

DMT: The Spirit Molecule makes the bold case that DMT, naturally released by the pineal gland, facilitates the soul's movement in and out of the body and is an integral part of the birth and death experiences.

Primal Body, Primal Mind

Examining the healthy lives of our Paleolithic ancestors, this book shows how our modern diet leads to weight gain and “diseases of civilization” such as diabetes and depression. It provides dietary strategies to counter the nutritional problems of eating grains, gluten, soy, dairy, and starchy vegetables.

Nora Gedgaudas shows how our modern low-fat diets are a far cry from the high-fat, moderate-protein hunter-gatherer diets for which we are genetically programmed. She explains the importance of adequate omega-3 intake--critical to our brain and nervous system but lacking in most modern diets. Gedgaudas reveals the nutritional problems of grains, gluten, soy, dairy, and starchy vegetables; which natural fats promote health and which (such as canola oil) harm it; the crucial role of vitamin D in cancer and disease prevention; and how diet affects mental health, memory, hormonal balance, and cellular aging.
