The vast majority of people are nutrition/lifestyle responsive, and this book tells you what to do. Heart disease is the number one cause of death both in men and women in North America. This is tragic, because of all of our major causes of death this is the easiest to prevent.

Using the programs and suggestions outlined you will learn ways to reduce cholesterol significantly.
Read this next statement carefully because it is extremely important... Most people can reduce their risk of coronary heart disease by as much as two percent for each one percent drop in cholesterol!

Complex terms like HDL, LDL, cholesterol and triglycerides are made easy to understand.
This book covers dietary changes and food supplements to lower your heart attack risk in only four to six weeks. Since heart disease is our number one killer, it is most prudent to follow the simple suggestions in this book to greatly decrease your chances of becoming a heart disease statistic.

Don't take your liver for granted. The liver is our second largest organ. Just like the heart, the liver has to work hard to keep you alive. It is a real fighter but if you inundate it with excessive toxic substances you could injure the health of your liver. This could lead you to hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, cancer, and inflammation of the bile duct. Due to our neglect, well over 25 million North Americans have chronic liver problems, making liver toxicity one of our leading health conditions.
Considering that we are living in a toxic world, I can safely make a statement that every person reading this book has liver damage to one degree or another.
Discover in this book how some herbs and nutrients can help protect and support the liver functions. When the liver falters, all other organs will fail to function ideally. If you look after your liver's health, it will reward you with years of healthy living.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure and The Hormone Reset Diet shows every woman how to create a lifestyle that will help her look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging.
Feel destined for cellulite, saddle bags, and belly fat? Does your family come from a long line of Alzheimer's, cancer, or heart disease? Will nothing help your aging skin or declining libido or flagging energy? This book is for you.
The body is magnificent but it doesn't come with a lifetime warranty, or an operating manual. You're the result of millions of years of evolution, but many of the adaptations that helped your ancestors survive are now working overtime to accelerate the aging process. The assumption here is that we are our genes and therefore trapped by the past. The good news is that your genetic code—the DNA sequence that is the biochemical basis of heredity—can play a minor role in the way you age.
The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT—trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week program that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young.
Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five-key factors that lead to accelerated aging -the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol and is as follows:Feed—Week 1Sleep—Week 2Move—Week 3Release—Week 4Expose—Week 5Soothe—Week 6Think—Week 7
Younger increases not only your lifespan, but also your healthspan. Dr. Gottfried's program makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.
There is no quick fix to fat loss, only prevention, as obesity is a lifestyle disease. It took you years of poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle to make you fat. Fat loss is therefore not an event, a program (dieting) nor merely a number you see on the weighing scale or your BMI. A pair of “loose pants” is a better indicator of fat loss. In essence, if you lost weight without reducing your waist circumference, you haven't done much for yourself.
To escape from the obesity trap, counting calories, dieting or cutting fat out of your diet or starvation will not help. Instead, to lose fat, you need to know how the body stores and burns fat. You need to incorporate certain lifestyle changes to mobilize your hormones to co-operate with the body to burn fat to overcome your body's resistance to permanent fat loss. That is what this book is all about.
This book has necessitated that a revised, updated edition of the book
be made available to the students. Moreover, we have developed an additional
“online component with this second edition, in which additional MCQs as well
as guidelines for answering common questions have been provided.
Drs. Prasad and Cifu narrate fascinating stories from every corner of medicine to explore why medical reversals occur, how they are harmful, and what can be done to avoid them. They explore the difference between medical innovations that improve care and those that only appear to be promising. They also outline a comprehensive plan to reform medical education, research funding and protocols, and the process for approving new drugs that will ensure that more of what gets done in doctors’ offices and hospitals is truly effective.
