Drawing on more than twenty years of scientific research, Dr. Michael T. Murray reveals how the pharmaceutical treatments of the most common diseases that plague our society are often ineffective and result in serious, widespread side effects—and then explains how natural treatments can help us avoid them.
What the Drug Companies Won’t Tell You and Your Doctor Doesn’t Know makes clear that we must radically reevaluate the way that we take care of ourselves, and Dr. Murray provides clear guidance on the steps necessary to help you lead a fitter, happier, and healthier life.
In today's avalanche of medical information, how can you distinguish between proven evidence and unfounded claims? This is the first book to translate key medical data into clear guidelines capturing the highest treatment standards for heart disease. Renowned cardiovascular expert Dr. Harlan Krumholz presents seven strategies for reducing cardiac risk—what professionals agree really works. In this indispensable handbook, he also profiles care alternatives from supplements to stress reduction as well as treatments on the horizon. A "Tools for Success" section helps you track blood pressure, cholesterol, exercise, and weight.
Starting with a positive attitude that one’s good health is possible, Dr. Tanton, in turn, will provide readers with the necessary information, along with sufficient validation by some of the top scientists, who are not only knowledgeable, but also ethical―an important issue. Dr. Tanton feels that many “so called scientists” have some financial incentive, and are thus willing to make any claim, if the price is right. A great number of our current healthcare protocols are based on profit potential, rather than results. Heart bypass surgeries, angioplasties, and stents, are a prime example. The truth is, none are necessary, and worst of all, (in spite of the exorbitant cost), they create future complications that are not only unnecessary, but also irreversible. If one lives long enough, an additional surgery is often required. Keep this in mind, as it could be an important part of our incentive to read about Dr. Tanton’s remarkable findings and therapies.
For all the times you've said, "Why did I just eat that?"
Say good-bye to one of the most overlooked areas of our relationship to food -- mindless eating. This groundbreaking book shines new light on why we eat along with practical, proven strategies to control our eating.
Does your busy schedule translate into eating on the run or skipping meals altogether? Is your life so filled with multitasking and on-the-go consumption that eating becomes a thing to do while doing other things? Dr. Linda knows that all too often such eating becomes a source of guilt and distress.
The more stressed we feel, the more food becomes a source of gratification and relief -- a numbing agent. Dieting treats only symptoms. "Unless people are coached to be intentional about their eating, they will continue to eat mindlessly and be part of the 90 to 95 percent of failed dieters," writes Dr. Linda. "A new approach is needed -- one that addresses the emotional, relational, and spiritual side of our relationship to food."
Food is not your enemy; it is something you can once again enjoy! Dr. Linda deals with the root causes of unintentional eating and restores your joy of eating. This is your practical guide to cultivating a healthy awareness of eating that attends to your body, soul, and spirit.

Once and for All
During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives.
