Elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins are markers linked to heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular disorders. It is estimated that over 100 million Americans—more than a third of our population—suffer from these conditions. To combat these problems, modern science has created a group of drugs known as statins, available under such names as Lipitor, Zocor, and Pravachol. While over 20 million people take these medications, the fact is that up to 42 percent experience negative, often serious, side effects. Fortunately, other options are available. Here, for the first time, is a concise guide that explains the problems caused by statin drugs, and offers easy-to-follow strategies that will allow you to benefit from effective natural alternatives. Written by a highly qualified researcher and physician, Natural Alternatives to Lipitor, Zocor & Other Statin Drugs begins with a clear explanation of elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins. It then examines how statin drugs work to alleviate these problems, and discusses their possible side effects. Finally, the author highlights the most important natural alternatives, providing information on the science behind their claims, their proven effectiveness, and their suggested dosage. If you have elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins, or if you are currently using a statin drug, Natural Alternatives to Lipitor, Zocor & Other Statin Drugs can make a profound difference in the quality of your life.

Magnesium and magnesium alloys provide unique properties for engineering applications. Magnesium alloys are popular as a structural material because of their combination of light weight and strength. They are desirable for portable tools, appliances, electronic devices, airplanes, space vehicles, and land transportation. This book is written for engineers, scientists, teachers, and students engaged in the design process of material selection and material elimination. While focused on mechanical properties for structural design, the physical properties that are germane to corrosion behavior and electrical applications are represented. Two-thirds of the book is devoted to datasheets for individual alloys which provide a handy quick reference to specific properties and performance. The remainder of the book addresses topics common to all magnesium alloys such as the alloy designation system and product forms. Casting alloys and wrought alloys are compared. The alloy performance at elevated temperature is presented, as are fatigue properties. Finally, a summary of the corrosion behavior of selected alloys is discussed along with how these corrosion mechanisms can be applied for beneficial results.

Curing America's Ill-Health by Reversing Our Widespread Magnesium Deficiency

The latest government study shows a staggering 68% of Americans do not consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium. Heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, depression and obesity are a few of the more-than forty diseases a attributable to suboptimal magnesium consumption. There are numerous reasons why magnesium intake is so low. Substantial amounts of magnesium are removed from food by the food processing industry, but the magnesium is not replaced. The agriculture industry over the past century has employed fertilizers (PKN) which produce lush and verdant plants; unfortunately this fertilizer combination inhibits the plant's uptake of magnesium. Doctors do not apprise patients of their low magnesium stores because there is no widely-accepted test for measuring cellular magnesium. Supplementation to restore magnesium levels is difficult since many magnesium compounds are laxatives. The book suggests both dietary and transdermal means to the reader for restoring cellular magnesium. A national "Champion" to rectify this magnesium-deficient condition is sought, and the role of the Champion is described. "Kelly Kindig is a serious scientist who has applied his discipline to organizing and articulating the near miraculous, very low-cost, medical benefits of magnesium which have heretofore been hiding in plain sight."

Aprende a manejar tus emociones para poder cambiar tu alimentación. Mónica Katz y su hija Valeria Sol Groisman, en su revolucionario trabajo sobre la alimentación, indagan no solo en lo que comemos sino también en las razones para realizar una dieta, las cuales pueden convertirse asimismo en las causas para abandonarla. Las estrategias para perder peso, casi todas restrictivas, fallan porque se concentran en la comida. En este libro, las autoras ponen el foco en esos otros factores que hacen que una dieta no funcione: las emociones, las obsesiones, los mitos alimentarios y la información que nos llega a través de los medios de comunicación y las redes sociales. El método No Dieta nos ofrece las herramientas necesarias para escuchar nuestras emociones, modificar los propios hábitos y seguir una alimentación saludable sin fracasar en el intento. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Learn to manage your emotions so you can change the way you eat. Monica Katz and her daughter Valeria, in their revolutionary work about food, examine not only what we eat but also the reasons for starting a diet, which can also be the same reasons we abandon such diets. Our strategies to lose weight in most cases fail because they concentrate on the food alone. In this book, the authors highlight those other factors that make a diet not work: emotions, obsessions, food myths, and all the information that comes to us from TV or social media. The No-Diet Method offers the necessary tools to listen to our emotions, modify our bad habits, and follow a healthy eating method without giving up half way.

Essential reading for candidates for the MRCPath examination and similar postgraduate examinations in clinical biochemistry. The book gives an overview of the acquisition of data, as well as concentrating on clinical aspects of the subject, giving detailed coverage of all conditions where clinical biochemistry is used in diagnosis and management. In common with other diagnostic specialties clinical biochemistry now uses an increasing number of techniques involving the 'new biology': these are covered in this book. It is also increasingly common for medically qualified clinical biochemists to become involved in the clinical management of patients (eg nutritional support) and material on this will be included. From the author of the popular Clinical Chemistry medical student textbook. Although there are many competing texts on clinical chemistry, the vast majority concentrate on the technology; this book concentrates on the clinical. Ideally suited for preparation for the MRCPath and similar examination. Significant changes to content to reflect changes in how clinical chemistry services are organised and to reflect the advent of metabolic medicine as a recognised specialty. Chapter on Clinical biochemistry of nutrition to include new information on regulation of appetite and the clinical management of obesity. New chapter to bring together information on inborn errors of metabolism affecting adults. New chapter on clinical biochemistry of cardiovascular disease. The diabetes chapter has been split into two separate chapters to allow more detailed description of the practical clinical management of the disease.
