Did you know that the ADA recommends a diet which makes long term diabetic complications more likely? The diet the American Diabetes Association recommends calls for 45-60 carbs per meal. As a result of that carb load, blood sugar spikes, insulin is administered, and blood sugar crashes. We call this the blood sugar roller coaster. The logical solution is to get off the blood sugar roller coaster completely. Following a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet stops this blood sugar spike/crash cycle, helps you reduce or even eliminate medications such as metformin, greatly reduce insulin needs, and avoid long-term diabetic complications.

As a treatment for diabetes, the current American Diabetes Association guidelines are a disaster for Type 1 diabetics. The ADA recommendations actually make blood sugar control much harder and increase the danger of hypoglycemic episodes. The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes eBook provides the practical information to implement a ketogenic diet in the context of managing insulin needs. Coauthored with Dr. Keith Runyan, a physician who treats his own type 1 diabetes with a ketogenic diet (with the result of an HbA1c of 5.0) the book contains over 300 pages of referenced, applicable information on getting off the blood sugar roller coaster, avoiding hypoglycemia, lowering HbA1c test results and avoiding diabetic complications.

A Comprehensive Metabolic & Lifestyle Approach A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in 2016 is startlingly similar to a half-century ago. Despite decades of research and millions of dollars invested in uncovering the causes and developing treatments for this devastating illness, progress has been slow, with each new "blockbuster" drug proving to be as big a disappointment as the ones that went before it. Today, an Alzheimer's diagnosis is a death sentence. However, there may be ways to prevent, delay, and possibly even reverse the course of this crippling neurodegenerative disease. In The Alzheimer's Antidote, Certified Nutrition Specialist Amy Berger presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention to combat Alzheimer's disease at its roots. Berger's research shows that Alzheimer's results from a fuel shortage in the brain: As neurons become unable to harness energy from glucose, they atrophy and die, leading to classic symptoms like memory loss and behavioral changes. This is a revolutionary approach--one that has been discussed in the scientific literature for years but has only recently been given credence in clinical settings, thanks to extremely promising studies wherein Alzheimer's patients have experienced complete reversals of the condition. Medical and scientific journals are full of research showing alternate ways to fuel the starving brain, but no one has been bringing this essential information to the people who need it most--until now. In a culture obsessed with miracle medications, the pharmaceutical route for tackling Alzheimer's has been a massive failure. Pills and potions don't address underlying causes, and regarding Alzheimer's, they typically fail to improve even the symptoms. As a metabolic problem, the only effective way to treat Alzheimer's may be a multifaceted approach that fundamentally reprograms energy generation in the brain. The good news is, the secret is as simple as switching to a low-carb, high-fat diet. The Alzheimer's Antidote shows us that cognitive decline is not inevitable, but if it does occur, we don't have to sit idly by and wait helplessly while it progresses and worsens. Amy Berger empowers loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer's sufferers, and offers hope and light against this otherwise unnavigable labyrinth of darkness.

The ketogenic diet is a natural, non toxic, science based cancer diet which can be used for cancer prevention and treatment. It works because cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive. Normal cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel, cancer cells can't. A ketogenic diet lowers blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells. This essential, well referenced book is based on cutting edge research on ketogenic dietary therapies from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino at the University of South Florida and Dr. Thomas Seyfried at Boston College, with their generous permission. The book offers the latest information on:* How and why a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet works to stop cancer cells, how to implement the diet and how to monitor your progress* Blood glucose and ketone level targets recommended to destroy cancer*What foods to choose and how much to eat *Why certain foods must be restricted*Use of calorie restriction and fasting*Whether alcohol is allowed *The debate between acidity vs alkalinity*Appropriate supplementation and much more.

A revolution in American medicine is in full swing, with the race from fee-for-service to fee-for-value at the front line in an epic battle that will transform healthcare delivery for decades to come. In America’s Healthcare Transformation, eminent physician leader Robert A. Phillips brings together key thought leaders and trail-blazing practitioners, who provide a wide-ranging exploration of the strategies, innovations, and paradigm shifts that are driving this healthcare transformation.

Finally, the book looks at reports from Stanford Health Care and Houston Methodist which outline how successful behaviorally based strategies, anchored in values, can energize and empower employees to deliver a superior patient experience. Drawing on the wisdom and vision of today’s leading healthcare innovators, America’s Healthcare Transformation provides a roadmap to the future of American healthcare. This book is essential reading for all health care providers, health care administrators, and health policy professionals, and it will be an invaluable resource in the effort to improve the practice of medicine and the delivery of healthcare in our communities and nation.
