TDP Mineral Lamp is a type of Far Infrared Therapy. It is often called the “Miracle Lamp”, as it helps with pain relief and treats back pain, arthritis, shoulder pain, joint pain, etc. as an alternative medicine treatment. The term TDP Lamp is an abbreviation for Teding Diancibo Pu which translates to “special electromagnetic spectrum” lamp. TDP lamps were invented by Chongqing Silicate Research Institute (CSRI) headed by Mr. Gou Wenbin in 1985. The TDP lamps are similar to far infrared lamps, but they are not the same. TDP lamps create mineral infrared waves that treat numerous ailments, a few common ones being back pain, shoulder pain, joint pain and arthritis. Unlike other conventional far infrared lamps, except for the support stand and the heater a TDP lamp contains a curing plate. The curing plate, the key component for a TDP lamp, is coated with a proprietary mineral formation consisting of 33 elements essential to the human body. When the curing plate is heated to a certain temperature, it emits unique bio-spectrum electromagnetic waves in 1-25 microns allowing for a maximum absorption into the human body. The absorbed energy promotes microcirculation and metabolism, strengthens the immune system, and achieves short- and long-term pain relief. Nowadays, TDP lamps are widely used by acupuncturists, therapists, and individuals on pain relief. In the past 16 years, TDP lamps have been used to treat over millions of patients with various chronic ailments worldwide. In China, people refer to the TDP lamp as the “Miracle Lamp” due to its incredible success in treating chronic ailments. They have a proven track record of success from clinical use all over the world. This is 2nd Generation Far-Infrared Technology which means it is the latest and greatest. Don’t be fooled by other First Generation lamps on the market they will not be as technologically advanced and will not perform at the same level. This is the Updated Version

Now in its third edition, ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities offers both exercise and health professionals the latest research and applications for integrating exercise into the treatment of 49 chronic diseases and disabilities. This reference was developed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and written by contributors with significant clinical and research experience in exercise programming for people with chronic conditions.
ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities, Third Edition, contains tools to assist in the coordination of exercise within an integrated model of patient care. The updated edition presents a framework for determining functional capacity in persons with chronic diseases and disabilities and offers guidance in developing appropriate exercise programming to optimize functional capacity and reduce the compounding effects of exercise intolerance.
Unlike textbooks on special populations, ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities provides an overview of exercise management and addresses a wider spectrum of chronic diseases and disabilities. A consistent and concise format allows readers quick access to the pathology of interest, training and response to exercise, management of medications, and recommendations and special considerations of exercise testing and programming. Within the text, diseases and disorders are organized into six sections: cardiovascular; pulmonary; metabolic; orthopedic; neuromuscular; and cognitive, psychological, and sensory. Information presented for each of the 49 conditions is based on the most current clinical research.
The third edition includes an added color and contains new chapters on metabolic syndrome, stress and neuropsychiatric disorders, multiple chronic conditions, and fibromyalgia. Information on professional preparation in serving patients with chronic diseases or disabilities has also been added. In addition, reformatted tables provide quicker reference for testing and prescription data. Recommended readings found at the end of the book offer resources for more in-depth study.
The text also includes case studies for each condition. These cases, drawn from the contributor’s clinical practice, illustrate how scientific research and clinical experience can combine in the development of an informed program of care for each patient. Case studies follow a set format, beginning with an overview and a subjective objective assessment plan (SOAP) report, followed by an exercise program and a follow-up statement for select cases.
ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities, Third Edition, presents exercise as a viable component in the care and treatment of chronic disease and disability and offers guidance for appropriate exercise prescription that can positively affect functional capacity and slow or prevent exercise intolerance. As the prescription of exercise for persons with chronic conditions increases, exercise and health professionals require the appropriate data and tools to serve these individuals. ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities will assist professionals in translating the science of exercise physiology into the art of practicing exercise medicine.

From the author: Recent National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative Guidelines for cardiovascular disease recommend that patients with chronic kidney disease be considered at highest risk for development of cardiovascular disease and that cardiac risk factor reduction begin with diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease include both traditional and nontraditional renal-related cardiac risk factors. The ANNA Nephrology Nursing Standards of Practice and Guidelines for Care can provide the foundation for planning care to patients with CKD and not only slow the progression of CKD but reduce exposure to cardiac risk factors. This article, on the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease and the risk factors and complications that contribute to cardiovascular disease, is the first in a series of three articles on the risk factors and complications related to chronic kidney disease and its impact on cardiovascular disease.

Recapture Your Health presents an empowering, easy-to-follow health-improvement protocol called the 3LS Wellness Program. This combination of unique relaxation, diet, and exercise techniques can reverse chronic conditions, heal degenerative diseases, improve lifestyle conditions, and help one achieve a state of vibrant health.
The 3LS Wellness Program supports the body to heal itself, thus a majority of conditions can be addressed. Sufferers of major conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, and diabetes, along with individuals experiencing common “nuisance” symptoms like recurrent headaches, allergies, and fatigue, will see improvement or complete reversal of their health problems. The 3LS can be a godsend to people who have tried everything and have not gotten better, who have puzzling or unusual symptoms, whose doctor cannot provide a diagnosis, or who don’t have health insurance. It is also very effective for mental/emotional symptoms, and for people who have been injured and cannot find relief from pain.
This unique program is very adaptable to the interests, age, and ability of a broad range of the population. Part I describes the three basic practices and how to apply them in daily life in the real world, thus avoiding common social and other pitfalls that usually derail most people from improving their health. Part II discusses the basic causes of illness and how the program addresses them, so that they can be applied consciously rather than by rote. Separate chapters give additional self-help practices, tips for working with practitioners, and instructions for using the 3LS for mental and emotional symptoms including depression, anxiety, alcoholism, schizophrenia, ADD, etc. A helpful resource guide includes a long list of recommended books and troubleshooting sections keep people moving forward dynamically in their healing process. An appendix for practitioners of all modalities gives tips for offering the program to patients or clients, especially those whose symptoms have not been relieved by clinical methods.
The name “3LS” is derived from the image of a wooden 3-Legged Stool such as you might find on a dairy farm. The three practices, like the three legs of a stool, are the basic support for total health. Dr. Stoll developed the program during his 38+ years as a medical doctor, and Jan DeCourtney provides additional perspective as a certified massage therapist. Both authors have followed this program to help their own health and bring the program to life by including details that make all the difference in being successful. Recapture Your Health is written in an easy-to-read and understand format. Thousands of people have improved their health using this protocol.
Referencing breakthrough medical research, two of the leading pain specialists in the field, Bradley S. Galer, M.D., and Charles E.
