ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE Second Edition £16.99
ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE Second Edition
What If There Was A Cure?
Mary T. Newport

In this updated second edition Dr. Newport, a neonatal practitioner, continues the story of Steve's progress and provides the most recent research on such topics as possible causes of Alzheimer's due to the herpes simplex virus and nitrosamine substances and how infection, inflammation and genetic makeup may affect an individual's response to fatty acid therapy. Among many other updates, she details the latest clinical trials aimed at removing beta amyloid that accumulates in the Alzheimer's brain.

Dr. Newport's story of Steve's reprieve from Alzheimer's provides a real breakthrough for carers 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 synthesised 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 and, also, reports the latest developments in ketone research.

Carers of those who suffer from Alzheimer's disease are searching desperately for hope, relief and a cure. They will find all that in this book that summaries Dr. Newport's research and Steve's reprieve, the importance of medium-chain fatty acids (like coconut oil) and how Alzheimer's patients can make the transition to a healthy diet rich in these vital fats.

Self-Help and Treatment
Joan Gomez M.D.

Anemia affects an estimated 400 million women throughout the world. Most women are unaware of the symptoms of anemia?,shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness, headaches and lapses of concentration?,and tend to attribute such mild symptoms to the stresses of modern life.

Yet, if anemia remains undiagnosed, it can lead to infertility in women of childbearing age, premature delivery in pregnant women, and in severe cases?,fainting, and mental confusion in women of any age.

In Anemia in Women, author Joan Gomez, M.D., explains why women are more susceptible to developing anemia than men. She discusses the signs and symptoms of anemia, the variety of ways in which anemia can occur at various stages of life, and the prevention and treatment available for anemia.

Her book also addresses the following topics:

* Symptoms, signs and tests for anemia
* Types of anemia?,iron-deficiency anemia and pernicious anemia

ANTI-INFLAMMATION DIET AND RECIPE BOOK £14.99
ANTI-INFLAMMATION DIET AND RECIPE BOOK
Protect Yourself and Your Family from Heart Disease, Arthritis, Diabetes, Allergies - and More
Jessica K. Black

Today's research clearly shows that our health is very dependent on the food we eat. Poor nutrition choices and hidden food allergies can cause inflammation in the body, which slows healing and can lead to a number of serious, chronic diseases.

A Naturopathic Doctor, Jessica Black wrote this book because many of her patients, who were trying to follow a naturopathic, anti-inflammatory diet, couldn't find any recipes to use. She prepared and tested all the recipes herself, using organic and nutrient-rich foods, eliminating common allergenic foods and reducing the intake of pesticides and hormones - all of which help to build a stronger, healthier, healing body.

The first part of the book explains how the anti-inflammation diet works. The second part contains 125 simple and tasty recipes, from breakfasts, appetizers and herbal teas to soups, entrees, salads and delicious desserts. Most of the recipes take little time to fix, and include substitution suggestions and health tips. Sample eating plans are included for the summer and winter months, so you can try to eat what's in season.

ARE YOUR MEDS MAKING YOU SICK?
A Pharmacist's Guide to Avoiding Dangerous Drug Interactions, Reactions, and Side-Effects
Robert R. Gold

Dangerous drug interactions and common drug-induced illnesses are a hidden epidemic throughout the world - where unqualified use and abuse of prescription drugs is becoming commonplace and many doctors prescribe multiple medicines because they don't have the time to fully diagnose.

Robert S. Gold, a clinical hospital pharmacist and affiliate instructor of clinical pharmacy at Purdue University with over 27 years of experience, shows the reader how to think like a clinical hospital pharmacist. He lists his 16 Rules of Safe Medication Use that, if followed, can help prevent the common problems that medication can cause; gives specific examples and scenarios featuring the thirty-six drugs that are the most common offenders and explains how even seemingly good drugs can harm a patient's kidney, liver, brain and heart if the patient's medical history and physical vulnerabilities are not taken into account.

ARE YOUR MEDS MAKING YOU SICK? is highly accessible and formatted for quick reference by any layperson. As the populations age and there is a steady increase in the number of prescribed and over the counter medicines and alternative remedies, this book will only become more important.

AVICENNA'S MEDICINE £30.00
AVICENNA'S MEDICINE
A New Translation of the 11th-Century Canon with Practical Applications for Integrative Health Care
Mones Abu-Asab, Hakima Amri and Marc S. Micozzi

A millennium after his life, Avicenna remains one of the most highly regarded physicians of all time. His Canon of Medicine, also known as the Qanun, is one of the most famous and influential books in the history of medicine, forming the basis of our modern understanding of human health and disease. It focused not simply on the treatment of symptoms, but on finding the cause of illness through humoral diagnosis - a method still used in traditional Unani and Ayurvedic medicines in India.

Originally written in Arabic, Avicenna's Canon was long ago translated into Latin, Persian and Urdu, yet many of the inaccuracies from those first translations linger in current English translations. Translated directly from the original Arabic, this volume includes detailed commentary to explain current biomedical interpretations of Avicenna's theories and ways to apply his treatments today, particularly for individualised medicine. It shows how Avicenna's understanding of the humours corresponds directly with the biomedical definition of proteins, lipids and organic acids: the nutrient building blocks of our blood and body. With this new translation of the first volume of his monumental work, Avicenna's Canon becomes just as relevant today as it was 1,000 years ago.

· Presents the actual words of Avicenna translated directly from the
original Arabic, removing the inaccuracies and errors of most
translators
· Explains current medical interpretations and ways to apply
Avicenna's concepts today, particularly for individualised medicine



· Reveals how Avicenna's understanding of the "humours" corresponds directly with the biomedical classes known today as proteins, lipids and organic acids

A-Z GUIDE TO FOOD ADDITIVES
Never Eat What You Can't Pronounce
Deanna Minich

Cochineal extract, diacetyl, tertiary butylhydroquinone, BHA, HFCS -- it's not knowing how to pronounce what's in your food, it's knowing what it does and how it can affect you that matters most. But with so many processed foods on the supermarket shelves and additives showing up in the most unlikely foods, that's certainly a tall order.

An A-Z Guide to Food Additives will help consumers avoid undesirable food additives and show them which additives do no harm and may even be nutritious. Designed to fit in a purse or pocket, this little book will serve as an "additive translator" when navigating through the landmine field of additives or ingredients that may cause allergic reactions like headaches, fatigue, and breathing difficulties or those that cause bloating or make one hyperactive. Included are safety ratings to 300 ingredients and reference charts of such additives as those that may potentially cause cancer or allergic reactions or that should be limited for sodium-sensitive individuals. There is also essential nutrition advice, hints on what to look for when reading those unreadable ingredient labels, and even tips on buying fresh produce in order to avoid pesticides.
