Description (from jacket copy)

Of all the problems that can affect physical or mental health, none is more common than thyroid gland disturbance. None is more readily and inexpensively corrected. And none is more often untreated, and even unsuspected.

Hypothyroidism--low thyroid function--is one of the gland disturbances that many people suffer from without even realizing it. It can be the cause of low energy or constant fatigue that is one of the most common complaints brought to doctors. It may be responsible for chronic headaches, repeated infections, unyielding skin problems, or circulatory difficulties. Even more frightening, it can be a major factor in heart disease, lung cancer, and     emphysema. And it is responsible for many emotional and mental

Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness explains low
thyroid function in easy, understandable language. It tells how it may be affecting your health and your life.

Dr. Broda Barnes and Lawrence Galton tell what the thyroid gland is, how it  works, the problems its dysfunction can induce. They detail case histories of  patients, often thought hopeless, whose problems were discovered to be related to hypothyroidism and were cured by Dr. Barnes's simple effective techniques. And they discuss whether you too may be hypothyroid, affected by a condition even a physician may not recognize.

Included is a simple test you can make at home to discover if hypothyroidism may be the real, previously unsuspected cause of your ill health.      If you know you are hypothyroid,Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness will answer your questions about your condition. If you suspect you may be, if you are unsure what may be causing those chronic headaches, infections, fatigue and low energy, it may help you find the answer.

The late Dr. Broda Barnes practiced medicine for more than thirty-five years. His experience with patients suffering from undiscovered cases of hypothyroidism led him to write this book. The foundation established in his name carries on his work with hypothyroidism.

How Hormones Affect Your Health and Well-Being

Do you experience PMS, irregular periods, or mood swings? Are you on The Pill? Have you had postpartum depression or a hysterectomy? Do you sometimes feel unaccountably 'out of whack' -- depressed, angry, exhausted? have you had difficulty finding a doctor able to make sense of your symptoms? Hormonal imbalances may be the culprit--and the last possibility your doctor considers.

Millions of women suffer with symptoms that are triggered by hormones. Some women become moody and irritable; some have panic attacks; others experience migraines, epilepsy, allergies, skin problems, low thyroid activity, ovarian cysts or fibroids. For those with a genetic tendency toward hormonal problems, every hormonal event in life - - menstruation, pregnancy, menopause -- can wreak havoc. Yet, because women seldom understand
the relationship between hormones and other systems in the body, they seek help for outward symptoms instead of the underlying causes. Medical research also tends to underrate the tremendous impact hormones have on the way women feel, and many doctors fail to suspect a hormonal explanation and proceed to treat isolated symptoms--with poor results.

Listening to Your Hormones ends the confusion, revealing the underlying hormonal basis for a broad range of symptoms a woman may experience at various stages of her life. Gillian Ford examines real case histories of women of diverse ages and backgrounds. In simple terms, she outlines how hormones, part of the most delicately balanced and misunderstood system in the body, affect our well-being, and discusses the most common hormonal
problems. Ford examines the full range of long- and short-term hormone replacement therapies available today, as well as a host of natural alternatives. At last, here is genuine relief from dozens of hormone-related conditions.

Gillian Ford is the health education coordinator for HER Place, Center for Women's Health, All Saints Health System, Fort Worth, Texas.

Description (from jacket copy)


Alan Gaby, M.D., one of the foremost experts on the natural treatment of bone loss, offers a breakthrough approach to the successful treatment of osteoporosis.  Three major concepts have emerged from his research:

  • Certain vitamins and minerals besides calcium play and important role in maintaining bone mass and preventing osteoporosis.
  • Estrogen is not the only hormone - and indeed may not even be the most significant component in treating bone loss.
  • Environmental pollution and food contamination may contribute to the development of osteoporosis.

Dr. Gaby's research in finding growing acceptance among physicians and, more important, among the many patients who have benefited from his approach.

Alan R. Gaby, M.D. received his B.A. from Yale University, his M.S. in biochemistry from Emory University, and his M.D. from the University of Maryland.  He is President-elect of the American Holistic Medical Association, Medical Editor of both "The Townsend Letter for Doctors" and Holistic Medicine, and a member of the Ad-Hoc Advisory Panel of the National Institutes of Health Office of Alternative Medicine.  He is the author of Vitamin B6:  The Natural Healer (Keats, 1987) and coauthor of the reference manual Nutritional Therapy for the 1990's.  Along with Jonathan Wright, M.D., he has compiled the Wright/Gaby Research Files, a collection of more than 23,000 scientific nutritional and natural medicine.  Dr. Gaby lives and practices in Maryland.

Description (from jacket copy)

For years experts have been telling Americans what to eat and what not to eat.  Fat, they told us, was the enemy.  Then it was salt, then sugar, then cholesterol....and on it goes.

Americans listened and they lost -  but not their excess fat.  What they lost was their health and waistlines.  Americans are the fattest people on earth...and why?  Mainly because of the food they eat.

In this scientific and revolutionary book, based on Nobel Prize-winning research, medical visionary and former MIT researcher Dr. Barry Sears makes peak physical and mental performance, as well as permanent fat loss, simple for you to understand and to achieve.

For instance, did you know that your genes haven't changed for the past 100,000 years?  And that 8,000 years ago there were no grains, bread or pasta?  The evolution of man's digestive system has been based on a diet of low-fat protein and low-density carbohydrate fruits and fiber-rich vegetables.  What that now means for us is that we should still be eating like cavemen and not like cows.  Why?  Because genetically, mankind has not evolved to a stage at which we can consume excessive amounts of grains and breads without adverse biochemical consequences.

With lists of good and bad carbohydrates, easy-to-follow food blocks and delicious recipes, The Zone provides all you need to begin your journey toward permanent fat loss, great health and all-round peak performance.

In balance, your body will not only burn fat, but you'll fight heart disease, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue, depression and cancer, as well as alleviate the painful symptoms of diseases such as multiple sclerosis and HIV.

This Zone state of exceptional health is well-known to champion athletes.  Your own journey toward it can begin with your next meal.  You will no longer think of food as merely an item of pleasure or a means to appease hunger.  Food is your medicine and your ticket to that state of ultimate body balance, strength and great health:  the Zone.

Barry Sears, Ph.D., is a pioneer in biotechnology, developing drug delivery systems for cancer and heart patients.  A former staffer at MIT, he holds twelve patents for cancer treatments and dietary control of hormonal responses.

Bill Lawren writes extensively on medicine and science for Omni and Longevity, and has written several books as well.

Description (from jacket copy)

"What would you say if I told you that the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type," asks Dr. Peter D'Adamo, and in Eat Right For Your Type, he shows us the simple answer.

If you've ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you're right.  In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type.

Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry.  It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength.  It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems.

Only recently have all the pieces of the scientific and clinical puzzle started coming together.  Dr. D'Adamo has spent the past fifteen years researching the connections among blood type, food, and disease, and his research is built on thirty years of work done by his father.  Now Dr. D'Adamo offers a total resource for health, an individualized plan that's right for your blood type.

In Eat Right For Your Type he shows:

  • which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight;
  • which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid;
  • which medications function best in your system;
  • whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation;
  • whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise;
  • how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections;
  • how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases;
  • how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration.

Eat Right for Your Type provides a clear, simple life plan that anyone can follow and suggests the easiest ways to determine your blood type.  Here is a breakthrough book that will change the way we eat and live.

Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo is a noted naturopathic physician, researcher, and lecturer.  His extensive research and clinical testing of the blood type connection to health and disease has led to ground-breaking work with several illnesses, including the treatment of breast cancer and AIDS.  He has written many articles for medical journals and serves on the scientific advisory board of several major insurance companies.  Dr. D'Adamo, who was selected Physician of the Year in 1990 by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and Clinician of the Month in February 1991 by Preventive Medicine Update, is the founder and editor emeritus of The Journal of Naturopathic Medicine.  He has a family practice in Connecticut.

Lose weight, feel fitter, lower your cholesterol, and enjoy the foods you never thought you'd eat again!  A rasher of bacon, a juicy steak, a wedge of cheese, a buttery omelet...Now, a team of pioneering doctors shows you how their groundbreaking, protein-rich eating plan succeeds where low-fat diets fail - to help you take off the weight and achieve optimal health naturally, without counting fat grams, without worrying about fat percentages, and without giving up the foods you love!  Finally, a diet you can live with that works.

Based on cutting-edge research, this revolutionary, medically sound, deliciously satisfying plan has already helped thousands of patients lose weight and achieve other lifesaving health benefits, including lower cholesterol and blood pressure readings and an improvement or reversal of common disorders such as heart disease, adult-onset diabetes, and gout.  Developed by Doctors Michael and Mary Dan Eades, the simple regimen calls for a new way of eating a protein-rich, moderate-fat, low carbohydrate diet that will have you feeling better and more energetic within a week, and correct blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol within three weeks.

Here, the Eades show you why their plan is so potent:  how it works with your body's metabolic biochemistry; how it brings powerful metabolic hormones, including insulin, into balance; and why this balance is necessary to achieve permanent weight loss and free you from reliance on costly and dangerous medications to control blood pressure and cholesterol.

Divided into two phases, one for those who need to lose 20 percent of their body weight or more, and the other for those closer to their ideal weight who simply wish to recompose their muscle-fat ratio and embark on a healthier lifestyle, the Eades' regimen relies on a tasty, filling, nutritionally complete diet that even allows for the consumption of alcohol - in moderation.  Their breakthrough system of counting carbohydrates gives you many more food options than other low-carbohydrate programs.  And they accompany their diet with an invaluable program of strength-building exercises and tips for maintaining motivation.

To help you put their plan into action, the Eades provide:

  • complete, satisfying meal plans, suitable for family dinners or formal entertaining
  • a Daily Meal Outline to keep track of your food selections
  • tips on making the best selections at fine restaurants or fast food chains
  • a minicookbook filled with nearly 100 easy-to-prepare and tasty recipes, from TexMex Cheese Flan with Chunky Salsa and Coconut Salmon to Irish Lace Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
  • way  to modify the foods you love the most to make them fit your diet plan
  • recipes for snack foods that can actually improve your health
  • supplements that will jump-start your metabolism to burn fat
  • a rapid recovery program for planned celebrations or holiday overindulgence

If you've been living the low-fat, no-fat way and still haven't lost weight (or been able to maintain weight loss), still have elevated blood pressure and cholesterol, still feel fatigued and bloated - stop blaming yourself!  Instead, turn to the Eades' breakthrough eating plan and let them help you regain your health and vitality - and show you how to maintain these benefits for a lifetime.

Michael R. Eades, M.D., author of This So Fast, and Mary Dan Eades, M.D., author of The Doctor's Complete Guide to Vitamins and Minerals, live in Little Rock, Arkansas, where they practice bariatric (weight loss) and general family medicine.  They are founders of the Medi-State Medical Clinics.

Description (from jacket copy)

The must-have kitchen companion for anyone who has lost weight on low-carbohydrate regimens like The Zone, Protein Power, The Atkins Diet, and Healthy For Life, and wants to keep it off.

Millions of people with weight problems have discovered that all roads to successful weight loss do not begin with the low-fat diet.  For most overweight people, in fact, a high-protein, low-carbohydrate plan is the preferred regimen to correct a metabolic imbalance, the source of the problem.  While this eating plan runs counter to all the proscriptions of government nutritionists, it has proven to be not only a safe but also highly effective method of weight reduction and the basis for a lifetime of good health.

The one stumbling block for many low-carb converts, however, is the restrictive nature of the diet itself:  Can anyone, really live happily ever after without a lot of sweets, breads, pasta, and all the other grain- and starch-based foods that are so central to the American palate?  Diet books themselves offer only a limited selection of "diet" recipes that have little to do with real life - which includes holidays, family dinners, and entertaining.  But help - and really good, satisfying eating - have finally arrives in The Low-Carb Cookbook, a collection of over 250 delicious recipes and essential shopping information that prove the low-carb diet can be followed for a lifetime, with pleasurable anticipation instead of grim determination.

Fran McCullough is the ideal low-carb guide, for she not only brings years of experience as a cookbook editor and writer to the project, but after years of frustration on low-fat and other diet schemes, has also lost over sixty pounds herself the low-carb way.  Because turning to low-carb eating is like learning a new kitchen language, McCullough begins the book with an invaluable checklist of pantry essentials as well as creative substitutes for foods you may be missing (like mashed potatoes), and tradeoffs for those times when you do crave a carbo indulgence.  The heart of the book, though, is the dozens of wonderful recipes for every course, from appetizers like a Mexican Shrimp Cocktail to an easy and extraordinary Cream of Mushroom Soup, from a Middle Eastern Lamb Salad to Nut-Crusted Swordfish, from vegetable dishes like Roasted Potato Skins and Zucchini "Pasta" to desserts like Berries with Trembling Cream and a made-in-moments Chocolate Mouse.

If you love to eat, toss out your pasta boxes, and invite even you non-dieting friends to dinner, for with The Low-Carb Cookbook you'll discover that it is finally possible to lose weight and stay healthy without saying goodbye to good eating.

Fran McCullough is a well-known book editor, food writer, and faculty member of the annual food writing course for professionals taught at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.  She is the coauthor of the James Beard Award winner Great Food Without Fuss, Great Feasts Without Fuss, and Classic American Feasts Without Fuss.

Maximising Manhood:  Beating The Male Menopause

Back to Top

Description (from jacket copy)


The Medical establishment has long refused to accept that the "male menopause" or "andropause" exists.  But over 50 years of scientific evidence shows that reduced activity of the hormone testosterone can have a huge effect on a man's health and potency.

Around the age of 50, but sometimes much earlier or later, action man may turn into inaction man.  From being a positive, bullish and outgoing person, he can change into a negative, depressed bear with a sore head; a disaster in both bedroom and boardroom.

Based on his experience with over 1,000 men showing the symptoms of loss of energy, drive and potency characteristic of the andropause, Dr. Malcolm Carruthers has fought long and hard to have the condition recognised as a true hormone deficiency state, and to establish that it can be safely and effectively treated with testosterone HRT for men.

Here at last is a revealing and in-depth study of many men facing one of the greatest male taboos.

Dr. Malcolm Carruthers has been carrying out research for the past 20 years on the key role of testosterone in keeping men healthy, happy and sexually active.  He is a Consultant Andrologist, a specialist in men's health, in his clinic in London's Harley Street.  He is the author of The Western Way of Death:  Stress, Tension and Heart Disease and Real Health:  The Ill-Effects of Stress and Their Prevention.
