50 Plus One Medical Breakthroughs That May Help You Live Better

50 Plus One Medical Breakthroughs That May Help You Live Better
$24.95
It is truly an amazing time in which to live. Who could have imagined that so much has been accomplished in the various fields of medicine that not only is life expectancy going up, but the quality of life is so dramatically improved. New drugs, new technology and new procedures will offer patients worldwide a chance for a better life-and it is only just beginning.

In this remarkable book, medical researchers Drs. Elena Fitchev, and Douglas Krejsa, have investigated some the most important and eye-popping changes in medicine and writes about them in such a way that they will help you understand what has happened and what will happen in the future to make our lives better and healthier.

Many of the medical breakthroughs are reapplications of existing drugs and procedures to new diseases and problems. It takes a very creative mind (and a profit motive, no doubt) to find that a drug created for one disease actually helps with other illnesses. Others are entirely new procedures or protocols, created from the latest clinical tests. The medical breakthroughs in this remarkable book offer everyone a chance to be informed (and encouraged) as they face illness and old age.

Readers will learn about:
* What is innovative in cosmetic surgery
* Non-invasive technologies
* New treatments for cancer
* Organ transplants
* Strategies in patient and doctor communications
* Joint replacement improvements
* Changes in physical therapy
* Computer-assisted medicine

American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back

American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back
$28.00
A New York Times bestseller/Washington Post Notable Book of 2017/NPR Best Books of 2017/Wall Street Journal Best Books of 2017

"This book will serve as the definitive guide to the past and future of health care in America."--Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies and The Gene

At a moment of drastic political upheaval, An American Sickness is a shocking investigation into our dysfunctional healthcare system - and offers practical solutions to its myriad problems.

In these troubled times, perhaps no institution has unraveled more quickly and more completely than American medicine. In only a few decades, the medical system has been overrun by organizations seeking to exploit for profit the trust that vulnerable and sick Americans place in their healthcare. Our politicians have proven themselves either unwilling or incapable of reining in the increasingly outrageous costs faced by patients, and market-based solutions only seem to funnel larger and larger sums of our money into the hands of corporations. Impossibly high insurance premiums and inexplicably large bills have become facts of life; fatalism has set in. Very quickly Americans have been made to accept paying more for less. How did things get so bad so fast?

Breaking down this monolithic business into the individual industries--the hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, and drug manufacturers--that together constitute our healthcare system, Rosenthal exposes the recent evolution of American medicine as never before. How did healthcare, the caring endeavor, become healthcare, the highly profitable industry? Hospital systems, which are managed by business executives, behave like predatory lenders, hounding patients and seizing their homes. Research charities are in bed with big pharmaceutical companies, which surreptitiously profit from the donations made by working people. Patients receive bills in code, from entrepreneurial doctors they never even saw.

The system is in tatters, but we can fight back. Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal doesn't just explain the symptoms, she diagnoses and treats the disease itself. In clear and practical terms, she spells out exactly how to decode medical doublespeak, avoid the pitfalls of the pharmaceuticals racket, and get the care you and your family deserve. She takes you inside the doctor-patient relationship and to hospital C-suites, explaining step-by-step the workings of a system badly lacking transparency. This is about what we can do, as individual patients, both to navigate the maze that is American healthcare and also to demand far-reaching reform. An American Sickness is the frontline defense against a healthcare system that no longer has our well-being at heart.

Deadly Choices : How the Anti-vaccine Movement Threatens Us All

Deadly Choices : How the Anti-vaccine Movement Threatens Us All
$27.50
There's a silent, dangerous war going on out there. On one side are parents, bombarded with stories about the dangers of vaccines, now wary of immunizing their sons and daughters. On the other side are doctors, scared to send kids out of their offices vulnerable to illnesses like whooping cough and measles--the diseases of their grandparents.

How did anyone come to view vaccines with horror? The answer is rooted in one of the most powerful citizen activist movements in our nation's history. In Deadly Choices, infectious disease expert Paul Offit relates the shocking story of anti-vaccine America--its origins, leaders, influences, and impact. Offering strategies to keep us from returning to an era when children routinely died from infections, Deadly Choices is a vigorous and definitive rebuttal of the powerful anti-vaccine movement.

Doctors and Distillers: The Remarkable Medicinal History of Beer, Wine, Spirits, and Cocktails

Doctors and Distillers: The Remarkable Medicinal History of Beer, Wine, Spirits, and Cocktails
$18.00
"At last, a definitive guide to the medicinal origins of every bottle behind the bar! This is the cocktail book of the year, if not the decade." --Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist and Wicked Plants

"A fascinating book that makes a brilliant historical case for what I've been saying all along: alcohol is good for you...okay maybe it's not technically good for you, but [English] shows that through most of human history, it's sure beat the heck out of water." --Alton Brown, creator of Good Eats

Beer-based wound care, deworming with wine, whiskey for snakebites, and medicinal mixers to defeat malaria, scurvy, and plague: how today's tipples were the tonics of old.


Alcohol and Medicine have an inextricably intertwined history, with innovations in each altering the path of the other. The story stretches back to ancient times, when beer and wine were used to provide nutrition and hydration, and were employed as solvents for healing botanicals. Over time, alchemists distilled elixirs designed to cure all diseases, monastic apothecaries developed mystical botanical liqueurs, traveling physicians concocted dubious intoxicating nostrums, and the drinks we're familiar with today began to take form. In turn, scientists studied fermentation and formed the germ theory of disease, and developed an understanding of elemental gases and anesthetics. Modern cocktails like the Old-Fashioned, Gimlet, and Gin and Tonic were born as delicious remedies for diseases and discomforts. In Doctors and Distillers, cocktails and spirits expert Camper English reveals how and why the contents of our medicine and liquor cabinets were, until surprisingly recently, one and the same.

Flesh & Blood: Reflections on Infertility, Family, and Creating a Bountiful Life: A Memoir

Flesh & Blood: Reflections on Infertility, Family, and Creating a Bountiful Life: A Memoir
$25.95
Honest, warm, and witty, this memoir reads like a chat with a dear friend sharing her insight and taking us along as she heals. Complete with family stories over cocktails and a praying mantis named Claude.

"I drive and say to myself, if I am dying, if this is how I die, then this is how I die." When N. West Moss finds herself bleeding uncontrollably in the middle of a writing class, she manages to drive herself to the nearest hospital. Doctors are baffled, but eventually a diagnosis--uterine hemangioma--is rendered and a hysterectomy is scheduled. In prose both lyrical and unsparing, Moss takes us along through illness, relapse, and recovery. And as her thoughts turn to her previous struggles with infertility, she reflects on kin and kinship and on what it means to leave a legacy.

Moss's wise, droll voice and limitless curiosity lift this narrative beyond any narrow focus. Among her interests: yellow fever, good cocktails, the history of New Orleans, and, always, the natural world, including the praying mantis in her sunroom whom she names Claude. And we learn about the inspiring women in Moss's family--her mother, her grandmother, and her great-grandmother--as she sorts out her feelings that this line will end with her. But Moss discovers that there are ways besides having children to make a mark, and that grief is not a stopping place but a companion that travels along with us through everything, even happiness.

A remarkably honest memoir about heartache and healing, Flesh & Blood opens up a conversation with the millions of women who live with infertility and loss.

Floating in the Deep End

Floating in the Deep End
$18.95

"For the decade of my father's illness, I felt as if I was floating in the deep end, tossed by waves, carried by currents, but not drowning," writes Patti Davis in this searingly honest and deeply moving account of the challenges involved in taking care of someone stricken with Alzheimer's.

When her father, the fortieth president of the United States, announced his Alzheimer's diagnosis in an address to the American public in 1994, the world had not yet begun speaking about this cruel, mysterious disease. Yet overnight, Ronald Reagan and his immediate family became the face of Alzheimer's, and Davis, once content to keep her family at arm's length, quickly moved across the country to be present during "the journey that would take [him] into the sunset of [his] life."

Empowered by all she learned from caring for her father--about the nature of the illness, but also about the loss of a parent--Davis founded a support group for the family members and friends of Alzheimer's patients. Along with a medically trained cofacilitator, she met with hundreds of exhausted and devastated attendees to talk through their pain and confusion. While Davis was aware that her own circumstances were uniquely fortunate, she knew there were universal truths about dementia, and even surprising gifts to be found in a long goodbye.

With Floating in the Deep End, Davis draws on a welter of experiences to provide a singular account of battling Alzheimer's. Eloquently woven with personal anecdotes and helpful advice tailored specifically for the overlooked caregiver, this essential guide covers every potential stage of the disease from the initial diagnosis through the ultimate passing and beyond. Including such tips as how to keep a loved one hygienic, and careful responses for when they drift to a time gone by, Davis always stresses the emotional milestones that come with slow-burning grief.

Along the way, Davis shares how her own fractured family came together. With unflinching candor, she recalls when her mother, Nancy, who for decades could not show her children compassion or vulnerability, suddenly broke down in her arms. Davis also offers tender moments in which her father, a fabled movie star whom she always longed to know better, revealed his true self--always kind, even when he couldn't recognize his own daughter.

An inherently wise work that promises to become a classic, Floating in the Deep End ultimately provides hope to struggling families while elegantly illuminating the fragile human condition.

Great Plant-Based Con

Great Plant-Based Con
$34.99

'The most incredible book' Delia Smith

'Persuasive, entertaining and well researched' Sunday Times

Plant-based is best for health, go vegan to help save the planet, eat less meat... Almost every day we are bombarded with the seemingly incontrovertible message that we must reduce our consumption of meat and dairy - or eliminate them from our diets altogether.

But what if the pervasive message that the plant-based diet will improve our health and save the planet is misleading - or even false? What if removing animal foods from our diet is a serious threat to human health, and a red herring in the fight against climate change.

In THE GREAT PLANT-BASED CON, Jayne Buxton demonstrates that each of these 'what-ifs' is, in fact, a reality. Drawing on the work of numerous health experts and researchers, she uncovers how the separate efforts of a constellation of individuals, companies and organisations are leading us down a dietary road that will have severe repercussions for our health and wellbeing, and for the future of the planet.

THE GREAT PLANT-BASED CON is neither anti-plant nor anti-vegan - it is a call for us to take an honest look at the facts about human diets and their effect on the environment. Shocking and eye-opening, this book outlines everything you need to know to make more informed decisions about the food you choose to eat.

Hormone Shift

Hormone Shift
$28.00
"A manual to help us understand how we can best care for, nourish, and show grace to ourselves, The Hormone Shift outlines the information about our bodies that all women should have access to, long before they reach perimenopause."--Gwyneth Paltrow

The goop hormone authority offers an empowering new approach to taking charge of hormone shifts through every stage of life--especially menopause.

When hormonal highs, lows, twists, and turns feel overwhelming, Dr. Tasneem Bhatia can offer a road map--and a whole new perspective. As an MD with an East-meets-West approach to women's health, Dr. Tasneem (known as Dr. Taz) combines the wisdom of Eastern modalities like Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine with modern medical treatments for whole body wellness.

To Dr. Taz, menopause is not an "ending"; a woman's entire life is a spectrum of ever-shifting hormones, and menopause is just one point along that spectrum. And hormone levels are a fluid continuum that you have a lot of control over: through your diet, how you sleep, how you manage stress, and more.

In The Hormone Shift, Dr. Taz breaks down exactly what is happening behind the scenes in a woman's body throughout her life and how almost every aspect of health is connected to hormones--from metabolism to mental health. She explains how to prepare for whatever is coming next, and offers a customizable Thirty-Day Hormone Reset plan that uses a combination of Eastern and Western healing modalities to keep the body in balance and deliver a targeted strategy for minimizing unwanted symptoms at every stage.

    Keto-Green 16

    Keto-Green 16
    $20.00
    An innovative 16-day plan that combines the fat-burning benefits of a ketogenic diet with the brain-clearing and keto-flu protection of alkaline food, by the USA Today bestselling author of The Hormone Fix.

    "A powerful program that paves the way for lasting health, longevity, and disease resistance."--David Perlmutter, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain

    Are you having a hard time losing weight? Do you suffer from brain fog, lack of focus, or poor memory? Do you run out of energy halfway through the day? Do you have unwanted cravings? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, join the club! In this revolutionary book, Dr. Anna Cabeca shares a proven way to finally give you the results you want, need, and deserve.

    There is no question that going keto works. This strict high-fat/low-carb diet denies the body glucose as a main source of energy and instead promotes the production and use of ketone bodies as fuel. It's a great way to move you off a weight plateau, gain willpower, and get results fast. But going keto also often results in gastrointestinal discomfort, low energy, and moodiness--known as the "keto flu"--which makes the diet hard to sustain.

    The solution? Add alkaline foods--leafy greens, other vegetables, broths, healthy oils, nuts, and seeds--for a lifestyle that's more sustainable and easier on your body. In other words: Go Keto-Green and thrive!

    A triple-board-certified physician, Dr. Anna Cabeca developed her method through years of careful patient and test-panel research. In Keto-Green 16, she explains the science behind her innovation: Hormone production dips as a woman ages, leading to increased visceral fat. By pairing keto-diet staples with foods that bring the body's pH to a more alkaline level, you'll shed belly fat while balancing the hormones responsible for that bulkier midsection. And by fueling your brain with ketones--like rocket fuel instead of gasoline--you'll make better decisions, including healthier choices for what to eat. The unique nutritional balance of the Keto-Green 16 diet also boosts mood.

    With 16 days of what-to-eat instructions (including a version for vegetarians and vegans); more than 50 delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes; information about the 16 best alkaline foods; a 16-hour intermittent-fasting strategy; 16-minute HIIT exercise routines; and a chapter outlining the specifics of the nutritional plan just for men; Keto-Green 16 will ensure that you skip the flu and get on with rapid and amazing weight loss.

    Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity

    Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity
    $32.00
    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A groundbreaking manifesto on living better and longer that challenges the conventional medical thinking on aging and reveals a new approach to preventing chronic disease and extending long-term health, from a visionary physician and leading longevity expert

    "One of the most important books you'll ever read."--Steven D. Levitt, New York Times bestselling author of Freakonomics

    Wouldn't you like to live longer? And better? In this operating manual for longevity, Dr. Peter Attia draws on the latest science to deliver innovative nutritional interventions, techniques for optimizing exercise and sleep, and tools for addressing emotional and mental health.

    For all its successes, mainstream medicine has failed to make much progress against the diseases of aging that kill most people: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and type 2 diabetes. Too often, it intervenes with treatments too late to help, prolonging lifespan at the expense of healthspan, or quality of life. Dr. Attia believes we must replace this outdated framework with a personalized, proactive strategy for longevity, one where we take action now, rather than waiting.

    This is not "biohacking," it's science: a well-founded strategic and tactical approach to extending lifespan while also improving our physical, cognitive, and emotional health. Dr. Attia's aim is less to tell you what to do and more to help you learn how to think about long-term health, in order to create the best plan for you as an individual. In Outlive, readers will discover:

    - Why the cholesterol test at your annual physical doesn't tell you enough about your actual risk of dying from a heart attack.
    - That you may already suffer from an extremely common yet underdiagnosed liver condition that could be a precursor to the chronic diseases of aging.
    - Why exercise is the most potent pro-longevity "drug"--and how to begin training for the "Centenarian Decathlon."
    - Why you should forget about diets, and focus instead on nutritional biochemistry, using technology and data to personalize your eating pattern.
    - Why striving for physical health and longevity, but ignoring emotional health, could be the ultimate curse of all.

    Aging and longevity are far more malleable than we think; our fate is not set in stone. With the right roadmap, you can plot a different path for your life, one that lets you outlive your genes to make each decade better than the one before.

    Recovery

    Recovery
    $24.00
    "An essential book for our times, full of wisdom, compassion and sound advice. Every patient needs a copy of this gem." -Katherine May, author of Wintering and Enchantment

    A gentle, expert guide to the secrets of recovery, showing why we need it and how to do it better

    For many of us, time spent in recovery--from a broken leg, a virus, chronic illness, or the crisis of depression or anxiety--can feel like an unwelcome obstacle on the road to health. Modern medicine too often assumes that once doctors have prescribed a course of treatment, healing takes care of itself. But recovery isn't something that "just happens." It is an act that we engage in and that has the potential to transform our lives, if only we can find ways to learn its rhythms and invest our time, energy, and participation.

    Drawing on thirty years of medicine, and on insights from practitioners, psychologists, and writers across history, physician Gavin Francis delivers a profound, practical, and deeply hopeful guide to recovery. Rejecting the idea that healing is passive, Recovery offers tools and wisdom for convalescence, and shows how tending to our bodies, environments, and perspectives can help us move through the landscape of illness--and come out the other side whole.

    $29.00
    America's Trusted Digestive Nutrition Expert reveals the many causes of irregularity, with tailored solutions for a dozen common--and some lesser-known--issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Malabsorption, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Histamine Intolerance.

    Belly bloat, diarrhea, constipation, and irritable bowels may not seem like the sexiest topics--but they still affect millions of Americans every year.

    Rather than focusing on a single one-size-fit-all approach to restoring bowel regularity, Regular aims to help readers identify the likely cause of their irregular bowel patterns and offers a wide variety of personalized solutions. For example, Freuman explains that while a high fiber diet that might help someone with slow transit constipation, it could make symptoms worse for someone constipated as the result of pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.

    Regular will guide readers to narrow down the specific cause of their irregularity and provide tips, including: questions to take to your next doctors visit; tables listing foods likely to be problematic and suggested alternatives; sample menus for different therapeutic diets; and foods and supplements that may be helpful for specific types of diarrhea and constipation.
    Whether you are dealing with chronic diarrhea or constipation, Regular will cover a dozen of the most common causes of bowel irregularity with detailed descriptions of their presentations that a sufferer should recognize, including:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Lactose, Fructose and Sucrose Intolerances
  • Malabsorptive conditions, including SIBO, Bile Acid Malabsorption, Celiac Disease and Pancreatic Insufficiency
  • Histamine Intolerance
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis)

    Rethinking Diabetes

    Rethinking Diabetes
    $35.00
    An eye-opening investigation into the history of diabetes research and treatment by the award-winning journalist and best-selling author of Why We Get Fat - "[Gary] Taubes's meticulous, science-based work makes him the Bryan Stevenson of nutrition, an early voice in the wilderness for an unorthodox view that is increasingly becoming accepted."--Niel Barsky, The Guardian

    Before the discovery of insulin, diabetes was treated almost exclusively through diet, from subsistence on meat, to reliance on fats, to repeated fasting and near-starvation regimens. After two centuries of conflicting medical advice, most authorities today believe that those with diabetes can have the same dietary freedom enjoyed by the rest of us, leaving the job of controlling their disease to insulin therapy and other blood-sugar-lowering medications. Rather than embark on "futile" efforts to restrict sugar or carbohydrate intake, people with diabetes can lead a normal life, complete with the occasional ice-cream cake, side of fries, or soda.

    These guiding principles, however, have been accompanied by an explosive rise in diabetes over the last fifty years, particularly among underserved populations. And the health of those with diabetes is expected to continue to deteriorate inexorably over time, with ever-increasing financial, physical, and psychological burdens. In Rethinking Diabetes, Gary Taubes explores the history underpinning the treatment of diabetes, types 1 and 2, elucidating how decades-old research that is rife with misconceptions has continued to influence the guidance physicians offer--at the expense of their patients' long-term well-being.

    The result of Taubes's work is a reimagining of diabetes care that argues for a recentering of diet--particularly, fewer carbohydrates and more fat--over a reliance on insulin. Taubes argues critically and passionately that doctors and medical researchers should question the established wisdom that may have enabled the current epidemic of diabetes and obesity, and renew their focus on clinical trials to resolve controversies that are now a century in the making.

Instead, in search of what truly makes someone healthy, this book is my journey in learning to question everything at a time when the world is as polarized as ever before.


    Unsubstantiated assumptions fueled by emotion rather than critical thinking have run rampant––on all sides. Science is incredible––it's given us antibiotics, vaccines, and life-saving surgeries. But are we putting the cart before the horse? As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded, a troubling phenomenon has emerged. Rather than assessing data objectively, following the precautionary principle, and upholding the true values of science, blatantly obvious biases have crept in. A blind, dogmatic belief in "the science" has emerged. In parallel, a fanatical "back to nature" movement, which tends to reject most of modern science, has created an additional problem. Which side is correct? The answer is not so simple.


    A much needed antidote to pandemic polarization, I hope to not only share both sides of the story, but also to empower you with a comprehensive guide to dramatically reduce your risk of virtually all chronic diseases.


    In this book, I hope I can begin to answer these critical questions, as well as empower you with a comprehensive, science-backed guide to a healthy life.
