In this practical guide to herbal dental care, medical herbalist Leslie Alexander and registered dental hygienist Linda Straub-Bruce detail how to use 41 safe and effective herbs for the mouth for optimum oral health, prevention of decay and inflammation, and relief from pain and discomfort. The authors provide recipes for herbal toothpastes and rinses, poultices for pain and inflammation, and teas and tinctures for intervention, prevention, and daily care. They explain how recent research confirms the link between poor oral health and many diseases, such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. They examine the risk factors, symptoms, causes, and herbal preventives and remedies for 47 common conditions that affect the mouth, such as gingivitis, periodontitis, bruxism, acid reflux/GERD, and tooth loss. They explore the complete anatomy of the mouth and explain proper brushing, flossing, and tongue-cleaning techniques to prevent tooth decay and gum disease and maintain bridges, implants, and braces. The authors address the importance of diet and nutrition in oral health as well as controversial topics including flouride. They provide an in-depth chapter on pregnancy, infant, and childhood oral care, including herbal remedies for teething and thrush.

In this practical yet scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and diabetes prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants and micronutrients to treat diabetes. He details how the proper combinations of vitamin and antioxidant supplements can greatly increase the effectiveness of standard medical treatments to halt and even reverse the progression of both type I and type II diabetes and prevent onset in those who are diagnosed as prediabetic. Prasad shows how chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, and free radical damage are the chief culprits for the progression of diabetes and its complications and that merely changing your diet and activity level and regulating blood glucose levels cannot fully counteract this unhealthy internal state. He provides an easy-to-follow daily supplement regime for both diabetics and prediabetics in multiple age groups to target free radical damage and cell injury and stop the progression of diabetes complications. Reviewing much of the scientific research on diabetes treatment, he debunks the flawed conclusions of the medical community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective, revealing how the studies focused on specific micronutrients rather than synergistic combinations. Offering the missing complement to the standard care of diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes promoted by mainstream medicine, this guide provides a truly holistic approach to diabetes prevention, treatment, and care.

The author, Brian M Stratton, writes: "I wanted this to be a book that was written from the heart. And it is - both literally and metaphorically. It focuses on helping the heart to stay fit and healthy, thereby reducing the risk of a stroke or heart attack. It's a first hand account of how I discovered I had high blood pressure and cholesterol, and the steps I took to reduce both. This was managed by looking at diet, lifestyle and exercise and managing these accordingly. With the diet element one of the things that made the most difference was cutting out salt and sugar. These two ingredients are acknowledged as the 'killers' in our food - especially salt. They are added to foodstuffs in production, but with the traffic-light system on food packaging it's relatively straightforward to monitor and regulate the amount of salt and sugar that you consume. Exercise is important and can take the form of walking, cycling, swimming - whatever works for you and whatever you find enjoyable. When beginning to exercise it can seem daunting but a saying that can help is: 'You don't have to see the whole staircase, just look at the first six steps.' The main thing is to make a start, no matter how small, and develop a routine from there. Regarding lifestyle, it was a question of reducing stress, and one phrase that resonates is: 'Don't let some random person be the cause of your death', which means not allowing petty matters - such as a row over a parking space - to escalate to the point where it raises your blood pressure to the extent that it triggers a stroke or heart attack. So, to summarise, I wanted it to be a book that gave advice and guidance towards a healthier lifestyle, but without preaching about it or being 'holier-than-thou'. I'd always be the first to say: "Why should I do that?" or: "Who says?" so I was conscious not to be 'telling' but just offering ideas, guidelines and different ways of looking at developing a healthy respect for our own well-being. This includes taking responsibility for our own health, rather than relying on others. I'm not a doctor or medically trained, just an ordinary person writing for other ordinary people in a style that is easy-to-understand, and written in plain English with no medical jargon or mumbo-jumbo."

Our modern culture revolves around fitting as much as possible into the least amount of time. As a result, most people propel themselves through life at a dizzying pace that is contrary to a healthy lifestyle. We eat fast, on the run, and often under stress, not only removing most of the pleasure we might derive from our food and creating digestive upset but also wreaking havoc on our metabolism. Many of us come to the end of a day feeling undernourished, uninspired, and overweight. In this 10th anniversary edition, Marc David presents a new way to understand our relationship to food, focusing on quality and the pleasure of eating to transform and improve metabolism. Citing cutting-edge research on body biochemistry as well as success stories from his own nutritional counseling practice, he shows that we are creatures of body, mind, and spirit and that when we attend to these levels simultaneously we can shed excess pounds, increase energy, and enhance digestion to feel rejuvenated and inspired. He presents an eight-week program that allows readers to explore their unique connection to food, assisting them in letting go of their fears, guilt, and old habits so they can learn to treat their bodies in a dignified and caring way. He reveals the shortcomings of all quick-fix digestive aids and fad diets and debunks common nutrition myths, such as "the right way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more." He shows instead how to decrease cortisol and other stress hormones and boost metabolic power through proper breathing and nutritional strategies that nourish both the body and soul, proving that fully enjoying each meal is the optimal way to a healthy body. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience in nutritional medicine, the psychology of eating, and the science of yoga, Marc David offers readers practical tools that will yield life-transforming, sustainable results.
Dr. Aviv guides readers through healthy dietary choices with targeted recipes, helping them balance their bodies and minds for optimal health and break acid-generating habits for good. Do you suffer from abdominal bloating; a chronic, nagging cough or sore throat; postnasal drip; a feeling of a lump in the back of your throat; allergies; or shortness of breath? If so, odds are that you are experiencing acid reflux without recognizing its silent symptoms, which can lead to serious long-term health problems, including esophageal cancer. In The Acid Watcher Diet, Dr. Jonathan Aviv, a leading authority on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, helps readers identify those often misunderstood symptoms while providing a proven solution for reducing whole-body acid damage quickly and easily. His 28-day program is part of a two-phase eating plan, with a healthy balance of both macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants), that works to immediately neutralize acid and relieve the inflammation at the root of acid reflux.
Carbs, Curves And Everything In Between is an in-depth look at the cause and contributions to our body issues and more importantly, how to overcome them. It gives the reader an understanding of both the psychological factors and neurological factors behind weight gain, addiction and why diets don’t work.
Lisa Steingold wrote this book because she was tired of the typical ‘transform your life in 7 days’ nonsense that is sold to (and bought by) consumers looking to deal with their body issues which only serve as a tool for failure. At some point, we’re going to have to look at the discerning factors involved.
The book seeks to answer questions such as:
The book is divided into two parts; the first part gives the reader the factual information and understanding of body issues, whilst the second part acts as a practical workbook and guide.
Lisa has done her research and yet brings in some radical new concepts and understanding in a manner that’s appealing, light hearted and truthful. The book is filled with case studies, examples and the author’s own stories, all of which make this book, probably the most authentic, well delivered book in the ‘change my body’ genre, written to date.
