The PCOS* Protection Plan: How to Cut Your Increased Risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity, and High Blood Pressure

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

        Do you struggle with your weight? Have irregular periods (or none at all)? Get acne? Notice thinning hair? Or do you have to deal with unwanted facial and body hair? If you have any of these problems, the chances are fairly good that you have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), along with one in ten women.

        We now know that women with PCOS are more likely to get diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity and its related health problems; and research is currently linking PCOS to a host of other health complications as well. And while you might see this as a frightening glimpse into the future, at least women with PCOS can look future health risks in the eye and then do something right now to reduce them instead of never knowing what could be around the corner.

        That something is the PCOS Protection Plan, an action plan written by women with PCOS for women with PCOS—to help you take control of your health so that you can significantly reduce the risk of serious health conditions.

 

The Immune System Recovery Plan: A Doctor’s 4-Step Program to Treat Autoimmune Disease

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Are you constantly exhausted?

Do you frequently feel sick?

Are you hot when others are cold, or cold when everyone else is warm?

Do you have trouble thinking clearly, aka “brain fog”?

Do you often feel irritable?

Are you experiencing hair loss, dry skin, or unexplained weight fluctuation?

Do your joints ache or swell but you don’t know why?

Do you have an overall sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it’s actually normal to you?

IF you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an autoimmune disease, and this book is the “medicine” you need. Among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune disease affects nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet; exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics; and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions to suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more. In The Immune System Recovery Plan, Dr. Susan Blum, one of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine, shares the four-step program she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, heal their immune systems, and prevent future illness.

DR. BLUM’S INNOVATIVE METHOD FOCUSES ON:

• Using food as medicine

• Understanding the stress connection

• Healing your gut and digestive system

• Optimizing liver function

Each of these sections includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple, easy-to-prepare dishes to jump-start the healing process.

The Immune System Recovery Plan is a revolutionary way for people to balance their immune systems, transform their health, and live fuller, happier lives.

 

Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Though Dr. Mary T. Newport has provided professional care to newborns since 1983, she’s led a double life since 2000 when she became a caregiver at home. That’s when her beloved husband, Steve, first showed signs of Alzheimer’s disease. After his deterioration accelerated in 2004, Dr. Newport began avidly researching ways to keep him functional for as long as possible. Since she understands medical terminology and scientific methods, she was thrilled to find new research showing that medium- chain fatty acids, which act like an alternative fuel in the insulin-deficient Alzheimer’s brain, can sometimes reverse or at least stabilize the disease. When she gave Steve about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (a source of these fats) at breakfast before a memory test that he had previously failed, Steve miraculously passed the test. Since then, Steve continues to maintain improvement while taking daily doses of coconut oil and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil with meals.

Dr. Newport’s story of Steve’s reprieve from Alzheimer’s provides hope for caregivers eager to learn about readily available fatty acids in foods that may reverse the ravages of this dreaded disease. Changes in loved ones may take many forms, including improved memory, return of personality, resumption of activities and social interaction, and relief from certain physical symptoms. Because ketone esters, a synthesized form of these powerful fatty acids, work faster and more comprehensively than fatty acids in foods, Dr. Newport has become an ardent advocate for ketone ester research, with FDA approval her final goal.

Caregivers for the more than 5 million people in the United States who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease are searching desperately for hope, relief, and a cure. They will find all that in this book that summarizes Dr. Newport’s research and Steve’s reprieve, the importance of medium-chain fatty acids, and how Alzheimer’s patients can make the transition to a healthy diet rich in these vital fats.

Integrative Medicine: Home Remedies And Natural Solutions For Chronic Pain, Heart Disease and Diabetes (Live Optimized) (Volume 3)

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Why do we get sick? How do we get well? How do we avoid getting sick again? These pages attempt to answer these fundamental questions in Health and Healing, but the real joy of the book isn’t in learning the answers, but in following the method down the path to an answer. Looking at options such as homeopathy, a treatment that, to an outsider, seems more like a leap of faith than an actual system of healing. Conventional medicine is great at handling trauma and sudden, life-threatening conditions like heart attacks, but it’s less good at dealing with chronic conditions like arthritis. These pages will show you how to go beyond conventional medicine and empower you to take healing into your own hands today.

Survival of the Sickest: The Surprising Connections Between Disease and Longevity (P.S.)

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Joining the ranks of modern myth busters, Dr. Sharon Moalem turns our current understanding of illness on its head and challenges us to fundamentally change the way we think about our bodies, our health, and our relationship to just about every other living thing on earth. Through a fresh and engaging examination of our evolutionary history, Dr. Moalem reveals how many of the conditions that are diseases today actually gave our ancestors a leg up in the survival sweepstakes. But Survival of the Sickest doesn’t stop there. It goes on to demonstrate just how little modern medicine really understands about human health, and offers a new way of thinking that can help all of us live longer, healthier lives.

Dan Ariely on Survival of the Sickest
MIT professor Dan Ariely has become one of the leaders in the growing field of behavioral economics, and his bestselling book debut, Predictably Irrational, has brought his ideas–and his ingenious experiments and charming sense of humor–to a much wider audience. With the simplest of tests (often an auction or a quiz given under a few conditions) he shows again and again not only that we are wired to make irrational decisions in many situations, but that we do so in remarkably predictable ways.

I have always been puzzled by the way in which genetic diseases have managed to survive throughout the ages. How could it be that these diseases were able to withstand the evolutionary process, where only the most fit survive, and continue to be transferred from one generation to the next? Survival of the Sickest provides a thought provoking yet entertaining explanation to this puzzle.

In this insightful book Dr. Sharon Moalem demonstrates how conditions that are considered unhealthy (such as hemochromatosis, diabetes, and high cholesterol), or even deadly in extreme cases, might actually put their carriers at an advantage in combating other life-threatening illnesses. For example, he explains that hemochromatosis, a disease that, if left untreated, will kill you, may have actually been a defense against the deadliest pandemic in history–the bubonic plague during the 14th century. It turns out that this genetic mutation, which continues to be passed down through generations, actually helped spare many lives at one point.

Throughout the book, Dr. Moalem draws many connections between seemingly disparate subjects, such as the accidental invention of ice wine and cold diuresis, in order to illustrate the basic mechanisms of genetics and medicine in charming and intuitive ways. He skillfully interweaves his knowledge of history, genetics, and medicine not only as they relate to specific medical conditions but also in a way that addresses important challenges of modern society and our future evolution.

In the most general terms, Dr. Moalem’s description of the human body and its complexity left me in awe of how far we have come in our understanding of biology and medicine, while also being reminded that the road to understanding ourselves is still wide open with much more to learn in the decades, and even centuries, to come. It is a fantastic journey on which he leads us and Dr. Moalem is a kind, knowledgeable, humorous, and helpful guide.

This volume, Diabetes, covers a disease that has been a common affliction from the beginning of recorded history, but has been increasing in its impact because of changes in diet and exercise, especially among the young.

Epi-paleo Rx: The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Neurosurgeon and wildly controversial Paleo blogger Dr. Jack Kruse gives us his first book, Epi-paleo Rx: The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health. Kruse, who used his findings to lose 140 pounds and pack on muscle, takes the reader through his prescriptions for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, autoimmunity, brain health, and aging. The material weaves together surprises from our Ice Age origins with the new science of epigenetics, or the effect of diet and environment on gene expression. A champion of “biohacking”, the art of tinkering with one’s own biology, Kruse pounces on his own profession’s ineptness when it comes to chronic conditions and urges readers to take health care into their own hands. He discusses which labs to order and why, why your doctor is obligated to write you a prescription you don’t need, the vital roles daylight and darkness play in metabolism, and the optimal diet for different stages of health and different times of year. Perhaps Kruse’s more fascinating contributions to Paleo literature are his findings on cold therapy: the effect of cold environments, immersion in cold water, and ice pack therapy on disease reversal, pain, and optimal living. Kruse explains how our origins as cold-adapted mammals hold the key to disease reversal, using a shocking biohack to prove his theory.

 

NO More Heart Disease: How Nitric Oxide Can Prevent–Even Reverse–Heart Disease and Strokes

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Dr. Louis Ignarro discovered “the atom” of cardiovascular health–a tiny molecule called Nitric Oxide. NO, as it is known by chemists, is a signaling molecule produced by the body, and is a vasodilator that helps control blood flow to every part of the body. Dr. Ignarro’s findings led to the development of Viagra. Nitric Oxide has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system as well.

NO relaxes and enlarges the blood vessels, prevents blood clots that trigger strokes and heart attacks, and regulates blood pressure and the accumulation of plaque in the blood vessels. Dr. Ignarro’s current research indicates that Nitric Oxide may help lower cholesterol by facilitating the actions of statin drugs like Lipitor.

The goal of the regimen presented in NO More Heart Disease is to age proof the cardiovascular system, keeping the vascular network clean and elastic through enhanced NO productivity. The plan is easy-to-follow without extreme lifestyle adjustments, involving taking supplements to stimulate Nitric Oxide production, incorporating NO friendly food into the diet, and a moderate exercise program.

Diabetes: An Old Disease, a New Insight (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

 Diabetes is a complex disease and is also one of the most common.  It is very difficult to reach an accurate estimate for the global prevalence of diabetes since the standards and methods of data collection vary widely in different parts of the world. In addition, many potential sufferers are not included in the count because according to an estimate about 50% of cases remain undiagnosed for up to 10 years. However, according to an estimate for 2010, globally, there are about 285 million people (amounting to 6.4% of the adult population) suffering from this disease. This number is estimated to increase to 439 million by 2030 if no cure is found. The general increase in life expectancy, leading to an ageing population, and the global rise in obesity are two main reasons for the increase.With the basic platform set, Editor presents his views and advice to the readers, especially to diabetic patients suffering from T2DM, on the basis of his observations and information collected from other diabetics.

Why Health Insurance does not Ensure Health (Only YOU Can Prevent Heart Disease)

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Health insurance has become the leading political issue of our day, but much of the recent debate about how to pay for it has overlooked the negative impact it has on American’s health. Health insurance in fact encourages unhealthy behavior and risky attitudes to health that ironically and perversely have led to our skyrocketing health care costs.

This book was written to share with a much larger audience what we have learned about the impact of health insurance on individuals’ health over the past 20 years. It all started in the late 1980’s as an idea to get people to live healthier lifestyles which earlier research by several others supported the concept that this would be very effective in reducing disease. It quickly became apparent that individuals felt no need to do pay for this on their own as they “had insurance to cover health related costs”.

After discussions with several health insurance providers, it was clear that most did not understand the concept of prevention. They could understand doing something after experiencing a large health care claim, but the notion of spending money before the subscriber was ill was an anathema to most of them. A few insurers along with many large employers, who are most often self insured for health care costs, readily saw the merits of spending a few dollars to save a lot of dollars. Many were even willing to reward their employees for making significant lifestyle changes. Thus an approach to prevention was born which over the next 18 years has been very rewarding in terms of motivating and helping people change their behaviors.

We learned a lot along the way. Initially we only worked with individuals who either had or were at high risk for developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes. We later learned that excluding healthy employees who might have high risk spouses did not make sense and expanded the programs to anyone who wished to participate.

It was exciting and rewarding to see the changes in people’s behaviors and resultant dramatic improvement in measured risk factors. Two-thirds of all participants over those 18 years made significant measured reductions in their risks. The impact on their sense of well being was most amazing and an unexpected plus. Many entered the programs only if 100% assured their confidentiality would be protected. After seeing their results and realizing how well they did, they could not wait to tell everyone about it.

An independent analysis of data from our programs was performed by Watson Wyatt Worldwide. This was funded by an employer who wanted to know if they were financially benefiting from our programs. The results indicated greater than $5.00 saved for every $1.00 spent on our programs. This is considered an extremely high return on investment (R.O.I.).

Many individuals who were familiar with our programs, but did not work for any of the companies where we ran programs wanted to know how they could participate on their own. Hence this book which incorporates the actual lectures and slides into narrative form as given at the worksites. It also allows the perpetuation of what I believe can make a very important difference in your life as you work your way through these lifestyle changes.

We hope that readers of this book gain a greater understanding of how risky behavior, encouraged by health care, has led to a broken health care system while endangering the lives of millions. Fortunately, there are immediate solutions that individuals can undertake today to reverse declining individual and national health, and we hope our book addresses that.

Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Mechanisms in Obesity, Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome (Oxidative Stress and Disease)

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension, metabolic syndrome is associated with the risks of type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Obesity, which increases the incidence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and subsequently leads to increased stress and inflammation, appears to play a central role in the progression of the syndrome. Evidence of inflammatory processes in accumulated fat appears to be an early initiator of metabolic syndrome. Likewise, the more active angiotensin system in obesity may contribute to even greater oxidative stress that serves as a key signaling event in vascular remodeling. These factors strengthen obesity’s association with oxidative stress.

Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Mechanisms in Obesity, Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome is designed to encourage the development of evidence-based nutritional and pharmacological therapies that can attenuate the impact of obesity-induced insulin resistance and ensuing metabolic syndrome. The book offers a deep understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie the process. Edited by leading authorities on oxidative stress, the book’s chapters report on cutting-edge research that explores intracellular events mediating or preventing oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory processes in obesity and type 2 diabetes. It also brings together research on the molecular mechanisms inherent in the progression of metabolic stress, includes phenotypic perspectives, and discusses dietary factors, including the role of micronutrients.

The chapter authors, each a leading expert in his or her field, discuss different components of metabolic stress and obesity and their associations with oxidative stress and inflammation. The book fills a unique role as a base of knowledge for researchers seeking to develop nutritional and or pharmacological therapies, as well as clinicians seeking a better understanding of this increasingly common disease process.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing our diets. Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects.

Furthermore, it can eliminate the need for expensive and invasive surgical interventions, such as bypass and stents, no matter how far the disease has progressed. Dr. Esselstyn began his research with a group of patients who joined his study after traditional medical procedures to treat their advanced heart disease had failed. Within months of following a plant-based, oil-free diet, their angina symptoms eased, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly, and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later, the majority of Dr. Esselstyn’s patients continue to follow his program and remain heart-attack proof.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind these dramatic results, and offers readers the same simple, nutrition-based plan that has changed the lives of his patients forever. In addition, Dr. Esselstyn provides more than 150 delicious recipes that he and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have enjoyed for years and used with their patients. Clearly written and backed by irrefutable scientific evidence, startling photos of angiograms, and inspiring personal stories, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease will empower readers to take charge of their heart health. It is a powerful call for a paradigm shift in heart-disease therapy.
