Juicing, Fasting And Detoxing For Life

Cherie Calbom, John Calbom
Authors:
Cherie Calbom, John Calbom

More than a simple collection of recipes, this book guides readers toward a lifestyle that promotes alkaline balance by juicing, eating well, and cleansing the body and soul. While most juicing books focus too much on fruit juice (which disrupts the body's pH balance with too much natural sugar), this book primarily focuses on juices, smoothies, and soups made from vegetables. Now, completely revised and upated, it also offers a guide to the food richest in nutrients from Vitamin A to zinc and includes over 20 new juice recipes as well as new versions of various cleanses to benefit the colon, liver, gall bladder, and kidney, lymphatics, and more. Beyond the body, the Calboms explain the heavy toll emotional, mental, and spiritual unrest can take on the body (and sometimes even encourage disease) and share unique, effective methods for cleansing the body of such toxicity.

Iain M. Banks

The eighth Culture book from the awesome imagination of Iain M. Banks, a modern master of science fiction.In a world renowned within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime within a war. For one man it means a desperate flight, and a search for the one - maybe two - people who could clear his name. For his brother it means a life lived under constant threat of treachery and murder. And for their sister, it means returning to a place she'd thought abandoned forever.Only the sister is not what she once was; Djan Seriy Anaplian has become an agent of the Culture's Special Circumstances section, charged with high-level interference in civilisations throughout the greater galaxy.Concealing her new identity - and her particular set of abilities - might be a dangerous strategy. In the world to which Anaplian returns, nothing is quite as it seems; and determining the appropriate level of interference in someone else's war is never a simple matter.Praise for the Culture series:'Epic in scope, ambitious in its ideas and absorbing in its execution' Independent on Sunday'Banks has created one of the most enduring and endearing visions of the future' Guardian'Jam-packed with extraordinary invention' Scotsman'Compulsive reading' Sunday Telegraph The Culture series:Consider PhlebasThe Player of GamesUse of WeaponsThe State of the ArtExcessionInversionsLook to WindwardMatterSurface DetailThe Hydrogen SonataOther books by Iain M.

Interstitial Cystitis Survival Guide

Robert M. Moldwin
Authors:
Robert M. Moldwin

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the urinary bladder that can have a devastating impact on the quality of life - both for the patient and their loved ones. The disease is often debilitating and may cause the patient to experience feelings of helplessness and despair. IC has been an enigma to the medical profession for a long time, the condition is still frequently misdiagnosed as an acute urinary tract infection or cystitis, a disorder that can be treated with antibiotics. Although there is no cure for IC, the past decade has seen remarkable progress in promoting awareness of the disease and in the development of techniques to manage and relieve symptoms. In their odyssey through the medical system, IC patients routinely come in contact with a battery of unfamiliar tests, and their doctors may prescribe a variety of medications or even suggest surgical interventions. This guide is designed to uncomplicate the process and empower readers to make sure that they are getting the most appropriate treatment for their condition. The author shows readers how to make a self-diagnosis, evaluates the latest medications and their side effects, and describes the latest, most up-to-date nonmedical and alternative strategies for managing and reducing symptoms.

Naked To The Bone

Bettyann H. Kevles
Authors:
Bettyann H. Kevles

A century ago, the living body, like most of the material world, was opaque. Then Wilhelm Roentgen captured and X-ray image of his wife's finger,her wedding ring floating" around a white bone,and our range of vision changed forever. By the 1920s, X-ray technology was common-place: all army recruits had lined up for chest pictures during WWI, and children were examining the bones of their feet in shoe store fluoroscopes, spectacularly unaware of the radiation they were absorbing. Through lucid prose, vivid anecdotes, and over seventy striking illustrations, science writer Bettyann Holtzman Kevles shows how X-rays and the subsequent daughter technologies,CT, MRI, PET, ultrasound,transformed the practice of medicine (from pediatrics to neurosurgery), the rules of evidence in courts, and the vision of artists.

Confronting Cancer

Michael M. Sherry
Authors:
Michael M. Sherry

From the moment of diagnosis, the cancer patient embarks on a journey that can prove both daunting and overwhelming. Fears and choices abound, along with the need to understand the nature and ramifications of the specific illness. Having witnessed this devastating predicament among countless patients in his own extensive practice as a cancer specialist, Dr. Michael Sherry felt compelled to write a lucid and comprehensive cancer handbook for patients and their families coping with the daily reality of the disease. Confronting Cancer: How to Care for Today and Tomorrow is a practical and readily understandable resource book that interprets the complexities of cancer for the layperson. In order to guide the patient and caregiver through the successive phases of the disease, including diagnosis, treatment, and day-to-day living, Dr. Sherry has carefully organized the book into three parts: Part One emphasizes the distinctive nature of specific cancers (such as breast, lung, skin, and colon) and explains the basic rationale for treatment Part Two discusses orthodox and unorthodox therapies and Part Three details common problems encountered by the patient (including getting a second opinion, frequent symptoms, and pain control). The author also includes vital information on the nature and treatment of less familiar cancers affecting bladder and kidney function, the testicular area, and "unknown primary organ." While the vast majority of the over one million cancer patients in the United States receive technically sophisticated treatments, most patients are bewildered by the intricacies of the treatment process. Confronting Cancer clearly explains major cancer treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, bone marrow transplantation, investigational therapy, "no therapy," and the dangers of cancer quackery.
