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

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.

The pH Miracle For Diabetes

Robert O. Young
Authors:
Robert O. Young

Millions of people around the world suffer from diabetes, and the figure is climbing - in the next decade cases are expected to triple in Europe. What this groundbreaking book proposes is that this serious and debilitating disease is entirely preventable. For those already suffering, this plan can reduce or even eliminate the need for insulin or oral medication of any kind. If you want to prevent or reverse diabetes, you should follow the guidelines in THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES. Dr Robert Young and his wife, Shelley, reveal a revolutionary diet and lifestyle program that unlocks the secrets of pH balance and of food as a healer, restorer, balancer and life-giver. They illustrate that the single most important measurement of your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - in fact, the entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment and chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue. THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES is a proven program that explains which foods to eat, which foods can be combined safely, which should be eaten alone, which should be avoided altogether.
