Biochemical imbalances caused by nutritional deficiencies are a contributory factor in chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, auto-immune conditions and cancer. This handbook for practitioners explains how to identify and treat such biochemical imbalances in order to better understand and manage a patient's ill-health. The book examines a range of biochemical imbalances, including compromised adrenal or thyroid function, gastro-intestinal imbalances, immune system problems and sex hormone imbalances, and explains how and why such states occur. It pulls together a wide range of evidence to show how such imbalances are involved in the most common chronic diseases. It helps practitioners to understand how to identify the imbalances through appropriate case history taking and laboratory testing, and how to design and implement effective nutritional interventions. Developed by leading academics and practitioners in the fields of nutritional therapy and functional medicine, this evidence-informed approach can be used with all patients who present in clinic, regardless of whether or not they have a 'named medical condition'. In the final chapter, a case example illustrates how to use the theoretical information in the practice of treating patients with chronically compromised health. Biochemical Imbalances in Disease is an essential text for nutritional therapy practitioners, as well as for students, and will be welcomed by complementary and conventional healthcare practitioners alike.

You can't escape the ageing process but you can slow it down. By helping you to identify and address the problem areas that are accelerating your rate of ageing, this book reveals how to become more energised, sleep better, get leaner, avoid or delay age-related degenerative conditions typical in your family, and generally look and feel healthier in your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. Written by award-winning nutritionists, the book shows you how to manipulate your diet, supplements and lifestyle to strengthen the very body systems that are essential to extending your healthy years - systems such as inflammation, detoxification, carbohydrate metabolism and the stress response. It includes action plans for specific areas of interest, to help you focus on your own individual goal, whether this is reducing pain, improving your bones and joints, easing the menopause, losing weight, revitalising your skin, or reducing the chronic internal inflammation that is the precursor to most age-related diseases.

What is disease? Why do we get sick? Etiology is a groundbreaking work in the field of disease causation. Author Christina Ross, PhD, is a board-certified Polarity Practitioner and biophysicist who studies inflammatory response which she believes is the cause of all physical illness. Disease, Dr. Ross explains, begins long before biochemical imbalances occur in our physical body. Disease begins at the spiritual level, at the very essence of our being, and evolves through our mind and emotions before it is established in our body. Etiology is a study on how to detect disease before it manifests as chronic or incurable. Ross empowers the reader by providing research-based complementary and alternative medicine options, encouraging involvement in one's own healing process.

Despite policy directives, standards and guidelines, indoor environmental quality is still poor in many cases. The Healthy Indoor Environment, winner of the 2016 IDEC Book Award, aims to help architects, building engineers and anyone concerned with the wellbeing of building occupants to better understand the effects of spending time in buildings on health and comfort. In three clear parts dedicated to mechanisms, assessment and analysis, the book looks at different indoor stressors and their effects on wellbeing in a variety of scenarios with a range of tools and methods. The book supports a more holistic way of evaluating indoor environments and argues that a clear understanding of how the human body and mind receive, perceive and respond to indoor conditions is needed. At the national, European and worldwide level, it is acknowledged that a healthy and comfortable indoor environment is important both for the quality of life, now and in the future, and for the creation of truly sustainable buildings. Moreover, current methods of risk assessment are no longer adequate: a different view on indoor environment is required. Highly illustrated and full of practical examples, the book makes recommendations for future procedures for investigating indoor environmental quality based on an interdisciplinary understanding of the mechanisms of responses to stressors. It forms the basis for the development of an integrated approach towards assessment of indoor environmental quality.
