Monday, May 13th, 2013

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.

The Natural Diabetes Cure, Second Edition: Curing Blood Sugar Disorders Without Drugs

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Nearly twenty million people in North America have diabetes, and each year the number continues to grow. What’s most distressing is that diabetes can be easily prevented by simply maintaining a healthy balanced diet. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize the serious consequences of that routine trip to their favorite fast food restaurant. Fortunately, however, best-selling author and health advocate Roger Mason is here to help with his updated edition of The Natural Diabetes Cure. In it, he provides a simple, yet effective nutritional approach to preventing and combating diabetes.

Divided into two parts, The Natural Diabetes Cure begins by explaining how diabetes develops, its major causes, and the severe health risks associated with this metabolic disorder. Part Two details how a balanced diet of whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats not only helps improve health and well-being, but also prevents conditions like high blood pressure, obesity, and insulin resistance, which can lead to type-2 diabetes. Additional chapters discuss the key vitamins and supplements that can help those with diabetes regulate their blood sugar levels. Also included is a practical chapter on how to test insulin levels at home.

Living with diabetes does not have to be a life sentence. You have the power to free yourself from this disorder. The Natural Diabetes Cure-with the very latest information on natural, safe, and effective treatments-will show you how.

The Juice Lady’s Guide To Juicing for Health: Unleashing the Healing Power of Whole Fruits and Vegetables Revised Edition

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

A practical A-to-Z guide to the prevention and treatment of the most common health disorders.

Written by nutritionist and juicing expert Cherie Calbom, The Juice Lady?s Guide to Juicing for Health, Revised Edition, shows you how to use fresh juice to lose weight, boost energy, and achieve the glow of health. With helpful guidelines for buying and using a juice machine, Cherie also explains how to put that machine to work with delicious recipes and easy-to-understand nutritional programs for more than fifty health conditions. These research-backed programs include the best combinations of fruits and vegetables for each disorder, along with a diet plan and other health tips that can help you fight off disease.

This revised edition provides updated health and nutritional information on many conditions, including ADHD, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and much more. Supporting the nutritional programs with a unique diet plan, special cleansing regimens, and detailed appendices packed with useful information, The Juice Lady?s Guide to Juicing for Health gives you a total approach to health?now, and for the rest of your life.

Having trouble getting your five to nine recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables? Drink your vegetables, says Cherie Calbom, the Juice Lady, and she offers 75 juice recipes to help you do it. Juicing not only tastes good and gives you nutrition, but it can also benefit your health, says Calbom. She organizes The Juice Lady’s Guide to Juicing for Health into 53 medical conditions–such as Alzheimer’s, ADD, allergies, influenza, gout, herpes, fibrocystic breasts, diabetes, and depression. For each, she makes recommendations about lifestyle, diet, nutrients, herbs, and juice ingredients, and offers specific juice recipes. The juices are innovative and cleverly named, such as Popeye’s Power (with apple, spinach, parsley, carrots, celery, and beet), Ginger Hopper (apple, carrots, gingerroot), Sweet Calcium Cocktail (pineapple, kale), Jack & the Bean (tomato, lettuce, string beans, Brussels sprouts, lemon), and Weight-Loss Buddy (Jerusalem artichoke, carrots, beet). Two caveats: (1) Realize that you also need the fiber in fruits and veggies, not just the vitamins and minerals from the juice, so don’t juice exclusively. (2) Juices are part of healthy nutrition, but they don’t cure disease. (She doesn’t claim this, but it’s easy to jump to that conclusion from the way the book is organized.) Enjoy the juices and use them to support your health, but don’t expect that juicing will cause a change in a medical condition. –Joan Price

Fantasy Healthball – Football Edition: The Fantasy Sports Diet and Exercise Program Where You Take on the Pros!

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Fantasy Healthball is the health and nutrition program rooted in fantasy sports. It is part fantasy game, part science, and all attitude. You compete directly with professional football players to meet your health goals. This personal approach is drastically different from other diet plans. It isn’t about conforming to some new fad like low-carb or high-protein or low-sugar. It’s about you and using your passion for sports to propel you to achieve your personal health goals.

Starting as a popular website (FantasyHealthball.com) launched at the halftime of 2008’s Super Bowl XLII, Fantasy Healthball turns passion for football into passion for great health and turns spectators into active players. You’ll be actively engaged in the pro football game, without having to worry about a 300-pound linebacker planting you in the artificial turf!

All of the great things about fantasy football combine to motivate and push you to improve your daily health challenges – and your long term health. By selecting one of our competition methods, the “on the field” actions of pro football players will relate directly to your healthy actions throughout the week. You’ll earn “Healthpoints” for executing good decisions just like the pros earn points for executing a successful scoring play. The weekly result will be a win or a loss as you attempt to have a good season and even make the playoffs! When it is the off-season, you can play a health-only (no fantasy football) game called Training Camp against your friends, family, or yourself.

Fantasy Healthball combines no-nonsense “Dr. Oz sort of health advice” wrapped neatly in a fantasy sports package built on competition and fun. It is like a powerful combination of Nutrition for Dummies, Dieting for Dummies, Eat This Not That! Supermarket Survival Guide, and your favorite fantasy sports website! You’ll learn about calories, weight loss, eating strategies, exercise, and even how to perform a “Pantry and Refrigerator Exorcism!”
