What happens when the medical treatment you receive does not work, or there is no treatment available and you are left facing a debilitating disease or a shortened life? Nyema Hermiston, a registered nurse and longtime natural therapist, answers that question and many others, through the interviews of dozens of men and women who explain how they recovered from debilitating and life-threatening conditions, ranging from autoimmune disease, cancer, severe allergies, and pain. Unfortunately, far too many people are told there is nothing that can be done about their conditions, and they never seek out alternative treatments due to their unscientific status. They dont stop to contemplate the risks associated with orthodox medical treatments. For instance, in the United States, medical error claims the lives of 400,000 people every year, making it the third leading cause of all deaths. In Australia, medical treatment causes 18,000 deaths per year and injures up to 50,000 more. Alternative treatments that include nutrition and little-known medical therapies are often less risky and as effective as standard treatments. Find out how they could save your life or the life of a loved one in Good News for People with Bad News.

Life-Altering Secrets from Today’s Cutting-Edge Doctors and the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Ageless Today’s most trusted advocate of anti­aging medicine, Suzanne Somers, deepens her commitment to helping people lead healthier, happier lives by opening their eyes to cutting-edge, proven remedies and preventative care that most doctors just aren’t talking about with patients: longevity medicine and the more progressive study of bioidentical hormones. As we age, certain hormones diminish, creating an imbalance that can set off everything from perimenopause to cancer, beginning as early as our thirties. This hormonal imbalance is causing many to feel depressed, anxious, fatigued, sexless, sleepless, and ultimately ill, sometimes even terminally. What’s more, Somers and twenty doctors in the field of antiaging medicine argue that the processed chemicals in foods and pharmaceuticals we ply ourselves with are actually slowly eroding our bodies and minds. So we’re getting slammed twice. From estrogen dominance to deceptive thyroid problems, people are suffering, and most don’t have access to the treatment they truly need to get better and thrive . . . until now. Breakthrough explores cutting-edge science and delivers smart, proactive advice on the newest treatments for breakthrough health and longevity. In addition to being a pioneer in a rapidly growing health field, Somers is a passionate, caring individual whose own life was derailed by disease and brought back to unimaginable, feel good heights that she wants you, too, to experience.

Dr. Noble has practiced medicine for 45 years. He has been relentless in searching for expanded answers to health and healing, starting over 60 years ago and has continued in this pursuit since retiring 3 years ago. He will soon be 84 years of age. His focus has been on natural methods without abandoning his basic medical knowledge, but has maintained an open mind to more integrative therapies. In 1960, he graduated from Southwestern Medical School and practiced medicine till retirement. All through those years he researched nutrition, acupuncture, antiaging medicine, allergy, chiropractic and now, Mind/Body Medicine. He also studied in France, Holland and Vienna. It is his current opinion that a new science has uncovered a previously hidden major cause of illness for which Biblical scripture can provide for both healing and prevention and frequently be combined with modern medicine for greatly improved results. He realizes that most disciplines of modern medicine are necessary to establish the best preventive approach by embracing those already mentioned, but that Mind/Body Medicine must always be included. Ideal health requires both scientific and scriptural application. He noticed a pattern, a template, a paradigm between science and scripture. A parallel between the response of the immune system as it monitors and controls the separate effects, whether from positive or negative emotions compared to the positive or negative outcomes when scriptural directives are either followed or denied. This new science is Psychoneuroimmunology. Dr. Noble would like to provide you with knowledge gained through research and many years of experience so you can enjoy better personal health while building God's Healthy Temple. He is a graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas. He has been certified in Family Practice A Diplomate in the American Board of Family Practice A Diplomate in the American Board of Antiaging Medicine A Fellow in the American Academy of Family Physicians.

A groundbreaking, medication-free, scientifically based approach to healing depression, anxiety, and brain fog by focusing on your "whole brain" -- the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid There is a fundamental connection between the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid: if any one part of this system is malfunctioning, it will impact the others--and this is where The Whole Brain comes in. Integrative health pioneer Dr. Raphael Kellman presents his revolutionary concept of "the whole brain" (a biological system made up of the microbiome, the gut, and the thyroid). Kellman then shares a completely new approach to curing depression and other mood problems by focusing on this interconnectedness, explaining how this system works in tandem to heal mood and mental disorders without drugs. Based on Dr. Kellman's decades of experience as a physician and his ongoing study of the latest science, the book offers a lively, accessible explanation of how the brain works and why, for optimal brain health, you need to heal the microbiome, the gut, and the thyroid. With a proprietary three-week plan (21 days of meal plans, featuring 50 original and simple recipes; a complete exercise program; and a program of daily meditations and affirmations). The Whole Brain program will benefit people diagnosed with depression and/or anxiety as well as those who just want to feel better.

The recognition of oxidative stress as a major factor in health, aging, and disease has led to a surge in research aimed at uncovering effective countermeasures in the form of antioxidants. Unique in its two-fold protective function, alpha-lipoic acid has drawn unprecedented interest as a coenzyme in mitochondrial energy metabolism and as an antioxidant and cell redox modulator. Mounting data regarding its potential health benefits demands an authoritative, single-source reference to codify current knowledge and guide future research. A state-of-the-science compilation, Lipoic Acid follows the history of this potent coenzyme and the latest discoveries regarding the chemistry, biological action, and significance in energy production, antioxidant activity, and health. The book is divided into three sections: · Section I: Discovery and Molecular Structure reviews the early studies leading to the discovery of alpha-lipoic acid and explains the molecular structure, biosynthesis, and the characterization of lipoic acid and its chemical derivatives. · Section II: Metabolic Aspects describes in detail the human pharmacokinetics of alpha-lipoic acid including the lipoic acid-derived dehydrogenase complexes and their roles in energy metabolism. It also explains antioxidant activity and redox modulation and how lipoic acid induces Phase II detoxification enzymes through activation of Nrf2-dependent gene expression. · Section III Clinical Aspects discusses enzyme deficiency disorders and the effects of lipoic acid on insulin. It defines lipoic acid influence on signaling pathways and AMP-activated kinase, and considers the therapeutic implications for treatment of metabolic syndromes and the improvement of mitochondrial function by lipoic acid supplementation. Contributions from leading international researchers make Lipoic Acid the most comprehensive, up-to-date account of the impact of this potentially key molecule in diminishing the damaging effects of aging and disease.
