What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia (Fourth Edition)

Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand
Authors:
Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand

In the two decades since this book was first published, diagnoses of this disease have exploded. Most patients with fibromyalgia are on as astonishing array of medications--sometimes taking over 10 different medications and supplements a day to treat symptoms ranging from muscle pain and fatigue to hypoglycemia, IBS, and chronic candidiasis--and they still can't control their pain. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia is still the only protocol that actually treats the condition, reduces drug dependency, and offers an actual cure. The fourth edition goes deeper into understanding the disease and the early intervention options that are available. With special attention paid to fatigue and pain management, Dr. St. Armand goes into great detail about the big issues surrounding fibromyalgia today, including:A close look at supplements, including CBS oil--an unregulated market without the same scientific rigor as most medicationsGuaifenesin as a drug that does work, eliminating symptoms and restoring normal life to an astonishing 90 percent of the fibromyalgia sufferersA discussion of pharmaceuticals in treatment, and why "medical Band-Aids" won't treat the disease

Burn Fat Fast

Patrick Holford, Kate Staples
Authors:
Patrick Holford, Kate Staples

Burn Fat Fast is quite simply the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Alternate-day dieting, which involves taking in a very low amount of calories on alternate days, is all the rage - this diet takes it to a whole new level. In this book Patrick Holford outlines how, by combining elements of alternate-day fasting with a low glycemic-load (GL) diet, you can lose fat fast, without going hungry or compromising your health. For those new to the low-GL diet it is a way to keep you blood sugar even. Why do this? Because if your blood sugar level resembles a rollercoaster ride you'll have a lot of insulin in your system - and insulin is the fat-storing hormone. In Burn Fat Fast you'll find:* Simple, easy-to-follow guidelines on how the diet works* An outline of what to eat and what to avoid on both phases of the diet* Guidance on fitting the diet into your lifestyle* A short, highly effective fat-burning exercise routine developed by former Gladiator and Olympic athlete Kate StaplesAnd if you need any more encouragement, consider this: as well as encouraging the storage of fat, insulin promotes disease and ageing, so by combining a low-GL diet with alternate-day fasting you will not only lose fat fast but also improve your health and longevity.
