When you’ve tried practically every diet and have struggled for years to reach and maintain a healthy weight, what do you do next? If you’re Heather and Terry Dubrow, MD, you create your own diet based on cutting-edge and Nobel–prize winning science that promises not just unprecedented metabolic control, but also an internal cellular rejuvenation with powerful antiaging effects. Then, after creating a diet that can transform your life from the inside out, you want to help as many people as possible look and feel their best, so you write a book about it!

In The Dubrow Diet, Orange County’s favorite reality TV couple share the diet and exercise plan they created to end their own decades-long yo-yo dieting and flip on what they call the “ageless switch.” The central concept is called interval eating, a practice based on research showing that when you eat is perhaps the most important factor in weight loss and weight control. With interval eating, the Dubrows will introduce you to a simple eating schedule that can help you:

●       reprogram your cells to go after stored fat for fuel.

●       lower insulin and normalize blood sugar.

●       fight off chronic inflammation linked to almost every major disease.

●       activate a process known as autophagy, your cells’ self-cleaning process and an antiaging game changer.

●       increase your energy.

●       finally reach your goal weight.   

●       rejuvenate your skin and overall appearance.  

So, what are you waiting for? You have more power than you realize over the hormones that regulate your weight and the molecular factors that determine how you age. It’s time to take advantage of this power with a diet that is not only doable but also sustainable and even fun! The Dubrows wouldn’t have it any other way.  

Many foodborne diseases are newly emerging, while others, long with us, have become more virulent. Infectious Connections focuses on more that a dozen major foodborne diseases and demonstrates how the short-term infections that they inflict may lead to a wide range of long-term chronic health disorders, or increase the severity of existing health problems.Foodborne pathogens enter the body through the intestinal tract where they cause temporary upsets. However, if they go from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream, they can invade other organs, systems, and structures, where they inflict damage such as some forms of heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. For example, Salmonella can infect heart valves and lead to endocarditis. Or, Salmonella can infect the walls of the large blood vessels and lead to endarteritis, a condition found in some people with atherosclerosis. Or, the minor changes in the blood vessel walls can allow Salmonella to enter the bloodstream and go into the bone, leading to osteromyelitis.The American public has become aware of the rising incidence of foodborne illness from many well-publicized outbreaks from contaminated beef, spinach, tomatoes, and numerous other foods. Factors involved in food contamination include radical changes in agricultural practices, global warming, vast amounts of imported foods, and poor personal hygiene practiced in fields, slaughterhouses, food-processing plants, institutions, restaurants, and homes. The regulatory agencies responsible for food inspection and safety are woefully inadequate for the task. Infectious Connections discusses the current dilemma and suggest ways in which the food regulators, the food chain 93;from farm to fork,94; and we, the consumers, can achieve a safer food supply.
The secret to avoiding calcium-related osteoporosis and atherosclerosis While millions of people take calcium and Vitamin D supplements thinking they're helping their bones, the truth is, without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen could prove dangerous. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it's needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue (like the arteries)—leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis, or the dreaded "calcium paradox." This is the first book to reveal how universal a Vitamin K2 deficiency is, and the risk (in the form of cancer and diabetes, among other ailments) the absence of Vitamin K2 poses.Written by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a popular health expert on Canadian television and radio, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox sounds a warning about the popularity of the calcium and Vitamin D craze, while illustrating the enormous health benefits of Vitamin K2 in making the body less susceptible to dental cavities, heart disease, prostate cancer, liver cancer, diabetes, wrinkles, obesity, varicose veins, and other ailments.

The book demystifies this obscure supernutrient—a fat soluble vitamin that humans once thrived on, ignored by scientists for almost seventy yearsDetails how the consumption of grass-fed animals led to adequate Vitamin K2 intake—while grain-based animal feed helped eradicate Vitamin K2 from our dietsDescribes how doctors are raising recommended doses of calcium and Vitamin D—without prescribing Vitamin K2Details more damning facts about transfats—and how the creation of a synthetic Vitamin K interfered with the body's Vitamin K metabolism

An essential book for anyone interested in bone health, or maintaining their overall health, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox is the guide to taking the right combination of supplements—and adding Vitamin K2 to a daily regimen.
