Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss

Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss Lowest new price: $4.86
Lowest used price: $0.25
List price: $17.00
Author: Mark Hyman
Brand: Atria Books

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.

Nutrition Management of Patients With Inherited Metabolic Disorders Lowest new price: $154.28
Lowest used price: $101.24
List price: $236.95
Author: 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.

Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem

Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem Lowest new price: $51.01
Lowest used price: $4.42
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.

Nitric Oxide, Cytochromes P450, and Sexual Steroid Hormones (Ernst Schering Foundation Symposium Proceedings)

Nitric Oxide, Cytochromes P450, and Sexual Steroid Hormones (Ernst Schering Foundation Symposium Proceedings) Lowest used price: $1.84
List price: $99.00

The discovery of mammalian nitric oxide (NO) synthesis from L-arginine has led to a profound increase in our understanding of basic physiological and pathophysiological processes. The NO-dependent regulation of steroidogenic cytochromes P450, such as aromotase, and local, tissue-specific regulation of NOS isoform expression by sexual steroid hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, promises to provide new insights into the regulation of endocrinological processes. Research on the interaction between the NO and sexual steroid systems are likely to lead to novel therapeutic concepts for use in diseases associated with perturbations of the endocrine system.
