Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss

Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss Lowest new price: $3.96
Lowest used price: $0.91
List price: $17.00
Author: Mark Hyman
Brand: Mark Hyman

Bestselling author, columnist, and physician Mark Hyman, M.D., brings us a science-based, easy-to-follow diet and nutritional plan in UltraMetabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss.

For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle, especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to improve nutrition and ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us.

Drawing on cutting-edge research about nutrigenomics—the science of how food talks to our genes—Dr. Hyman, author of bestsellers including The Blood Sugar Solution, The Ultra-Mind Solution, UltraPrevention, and The UltraSimple Diet has created a method for losing weight by eating the right foods to detox and manage food allergies.

Food contains information and instructions for our bodies: eat the right foods and send instructions of weight loss and health; eat the wrong foods and send messages of weight gain and disease. After spending the last ten years conducting pioneering, hands-on research with over two thousand patients at Canyon Ranch, one of the world's leading health resorts, Dr. Hyman has discovered the seven fundamental causes of obesity. He has integrated his years of research into this groundbreaking approach to help you rebalance and stabilize your metabolism to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.

This isn’t a fad diet. Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal health and weight-loss program with a streamlined eight-week plan designed to help you lose weight based on your own unique genetic needs. Menus, recipes, and shopping lists, as well as recommendations for vitamins, supplements, and exercise will help you change your lifestyle and be healthy for years to come.

Author: Phyllis B. Acosta
Brand: Phyllis B Acosta

5 Stars! Doody's Book Review Written by the foremost nutritionists in the United States, each of whom has more than 15 years of clinical experience providing nutrition management of patients with an inherited metabolic disorder (IMD), Nutrition Management of Patients with Inherited Metabolic Disorders supplies information to enhance the knowledge and skills needed by nutritionists/dietitians and other health care professionals who provide services to patients with IMDs. Many disorders that are disastrous to patients have been diagnosed and managed by diet, improving neurological and physical outcomes. However, nutrition problems still occur, whether due to the quality of the medical foods, inadequate prescription by health care providers or poor diet adherence by the patient. This book describes these problems and helps medical food manufacturers, medical geneticists, nutritionists/dietitians, and other health care providers find alternative forms of nutrients that would provide optimal nutrition and health for the patients.

Brand: Brand: Routledge

This Handbook fulfils a pressing need within the area of psychological measurement in diabetes research and practice by providing access to material which has either been widely dispersed through the psychological and medical literature or has not previously been published.
Journal articles describing the psychometric development of scales have rarely included the scales themselves but this book includes copies of scales and a wealth of additional information from unpublished theses, reports and recent manuscripts.
You will find information about the reliability, validity, scoring, norms, and use of the measures in previous research presented in one volume.
The Handbook is designed to help researchers and clinicians:
· To select scales suitable for their purposes
· To administer and score the scales correctly
· To interpret the results appropriately.
Dr. Clare Bradley is Reader in Health Psychology and Director of the Diabetes Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Dr. Bradley and her research group have designed, developed and used a wide variety of measures of psychological processes and outcomes. Many of these measures have been designed and developed specifically for people with diabetes. Together with diabetes-specific psychological measures developed by other researchers internationally, these instruments have played an important part in facilitating patient-centred approaches to diabetes research and clinical practice.

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolism

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolism Lowest new price: $100.90
Lowest used price: $28.19
List price: $231.00

Recent years have seen a greater industrial emphasis in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the pharmaceutical and chemical sciences. However, textbooks have been slow to adapt, leaving the field without a text/reference that is both instructional and practical in the industrial setting – until now.

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolismis a stimulating new text that examines the techniques, methodology, and theory of bioanalysis, pharmacokinetics, and metabolism from the perspective of scientists with extensive professional experience in drug discovery and development. These three areas of research help drug developers to optimize the active component within potential drugs thereby increasing their effectiveness, and to provide safety and efficacy information required by regulators when granting a drug license. Professionals with extensive experience in drug discovery and development as well as specialized knowledge of the individual topics contributed to each chapter to create a current and well-credentialed text. It covers topics such as high performance liquid chromatography, protein binding, pharmacokinetics and drug–drug interactions. The unique industrial perspective helps to reinforce theory and develop valuable analytical and interpreting skills.

This text is an invaluable guide to students in courses such as pharmaceutical science, pharmacology, chemistry, physiology and toxicology, as well as professionals in the biotechnology industry.


Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem

Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem Lowest new price: $32.16
Lowest used price: $3.93
List price: $21.95
Author: E. Denis Wilson MD
Brand: Brand: Cornerstone Pub Co

Formerly titled, Wilson's Syndrome -- The Miracle of Feeling Well, this book describes a recently discovered reversible thyroid problem.

If you're suffering from symptoms of low thyroid function, and your thyroid blood tests are normal, that may mean that your symptoms are curable! Many patients with symptoms like Fatigue, Depression, Fluid Retention, Easy weight gain, PMS, Headaches, Migraines, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Itchiness, Insomnia, and many others, respond very well to the right kind of thyroid medicine given in the right way, even when their thyroid tests are normal. And more importantly, the symptoms often remain improved even after the treatment’s been discontinued.

This thyroid problem, Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome, is reversible in the same way that certain female hormone problems are reversible. For example, some women with irregular periods can be cycled on birth control pills for several months to regulate their bleeding. Then, when they are weaned off the pill, their periods often remain regular even after the pill’s been discontinued. Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome is a similar reversible hormone imbalance that affects the thyroid system instead of the female hormone system.

This book is an excellent description of the syndrome and its manifestations and introduces the treatment of WTS. It fully explains what it feels like to have WTS so people can get a very good idea of whether or not they think they may be suffering from it.

If people do believe that they may have the condition, the Doctor’s Manual for Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome explains the treatment protocol in complete detail.

Satiation: From Gut to Brain

Satiation: From Gut to Brain Lowest new price: $13.99
Lowest used price: $32.61
List price: $94.00
Brand: Gerard P Smith

This volume presents the first detailed account of the neurobiological mechanisms of satiation. The ten chapters of the book detail the neural, endocrine, and cellular underpinnings of the process. Authors expert in different aspects of satiation have compiled a critical overview of recent advances and current problems in this field. Recent scientific evidence has revealed that food stimuli activate satiation before the actual absorption of digested food--a significant change to the traditional perspective that satiation depends on the post-absorptive repletion of metabolic fuels. The inclusion of a chapter on the satiation of alcohol is unique in a book on food intake, and shows the convergence of ideas on satiation in these two areas. Comprehensive in scope and accessible to a wide array of advanced students and professionals, Satiation: From Gut to Brain is an authoritative and up-to-date review of every aspect of this important physiological process. Although intended primarily for neuroscientists, nutritionists, and psychobiologists, the book will also be useful for physiologists, pharmacologists, and psychologists concerned with eating and its disorders.

Toward that end the text begins with a review of normal renal function and extrarenal fluids and regulatory processes. Next, the major disorders of acid-base and electrolyte balance are reviewed with concise summaries of etiology, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. Discussion of pathophysiology of each disorder is cross-referenced to earlier chapters to tie together basic principles and clinical applications.
