Perfect Health Diet

Perfect Health Diet


Category: Books
Description: A UK edition of the just-released four-step Paleo diet program that offers optimal nutrition for a lifetime of health. Suffering from chronic illnesses, and unable to get satisfactory treatments for their conditions from doctors, the husband-and-wife scientific team of Paul and Shou- Ching Jaminet decided that they had to take a personal interest in health and nutrition. After embarking on five years of rigorous research, what they found changed their lives - and the lives of thousands of their readers. In Perfect Health Diet, the Jaminets explain how anyone can regain health and lose weight by optimising nutrition, detoxifying their diet, and supporting healthy immune functions. They show how toxic, nutrient-poor diets sabotage health, and how, on a healthy diet, diseases often spontaneously resolve. But they don't just tell you what foods to eat to make you healthier and weight loss easier: they show you why - with a clear, balanced, and scientifically proven plan. Already an international sensation, Perfect Health Diet will change the way you eat - and feel - forever.

Cooking Without


Category: Books
Description: ` Cooking Without' written by nutritional therapist Barbara Cousins is not only a collection of delicious and easy to make recipes but is also a book about health - how to gain it and how to keep it. The recipes in ` Cooking Without' obtain their flavour from ingredients that are health promoting rather than high levels of salt, fat or sugar. Ingredients such as gluten, dairy produce and yeast, which cause many individuals to have health problems, have also been excluded. As well as being linked to food intolerances these ingredients can also be an underlying factor in more serious health problems. The regime in ` Cooking Without' aims to give the body sufficient amounts of the nutrients it needs, thus producing extra energy which can be then be used for elimination and healing. The art of detoxification is explained in an easy to understand formula as are some of the reasons for health problems such as migraines, chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndrome.

Magnify Oxford Textbook Of Nature And Public Health

Oxford Textbook Of Nature And Public Health


Category: Books
Description: Human beings have always been affected by their surroundings. There are various health benefits linked to being able to access to nature; including increased physical activity, stress recovery, and the stimulation of child cognitive development. The Oxford Textbook of Nature and Public Health provides a broad and inclusive picture of the relationship between our own health and the natural environment. All aspects of this unique relationship are covered, ranging from disease prevention through physical activity in green spaces to innovative ecosystem services, such as climate change adaptation by urban trees. Potential hazardous consequences are also discussed including natural disasters, vector-borne pathogens, and allergies. This book analyses the complexity of our human interaction with nature and includes sections for example epigenetics, stress physiology, and impact assessments. These topics are all interconnected and fundamental for reaching a full understanding of the role of nature in public health and wellbeing. Much of the recent literature on environmental health has primarily described potential threats from our natural surroundings. The Oxford Textbook of Nature and Public Health instead focuses on how nature can positively impact our health and wellbeing, and how much we risk losing by destroying it. The all-inclusive approach provides a comprehensive and complete coverage of the role of nature in public health, making this textbook invaluable reading for health professionals, students, and researchers within public health, environmental health, and complementary medicine.

Social Epidemiology


Category: Books
Description: Social epidemiology is the study of how the social world influences - and in many cases defines - the fundamental determinants of health. This link was substantiated in the first edition of Social Epidemiology, and the generation of research that followed has fundamentally changed the way we understand epidemiology and public health. This much-awaited second edition elevates the field again, first by codifying the last decade of research, then by extending it to examine how public policies impact health. The new edition includes: * 11 fully updated chapters, including entries on the links between health and discrimination, income inequality, social networks, and emotion * Four all-new chapters on the role of policies in shaping health, including how to translate evidence into action with multi-level interventions * Updated references, detailing the best research over the last two decades The result is a bold, brilliant text that will serve the new world of epidemiology in which scientists both observe health and design interventions to improve it. Social Epidemiology again sets an intellectual agenda and provides an essential foundation for those interested in social determinants of health around the world.

Pure White And Deadly


Category: Books
Description: Sugar. It is killing us. Why do we eat so much of it? What are its hidden dangers? In 1972, when British scientist John Yudkin first proved that sugar was bad for our health, he was ignored by the majority of the medical profession and rubbished by the food industry. We should have heeded his warning. Today, one in four adults in the UK are overweight. There is an epidemic of obese six-month-olds around the globe. Sugar consumption has tripled since the Second World War. Using everyday language and a range of scientific evidence, Professor Yudkin explores the ins and out of sugar, from the different types - is brown sugar really better than white? - to how it is hidden inside our everyday foods and how it is damaging our health. Brought up to date by childhood obesity expert Dr Robert Lustig MD, his classic expose on the hidden dangers of sugar is essential reading for anyone interested in their health, the health of their children and the health of modern society.

Magnify The Health Gap
The Health Gap

The Health Gap


Category: Books
Description: ' Splendid and necessary' - Henry Marsh, author of Do No Harm, New Statesman There are dramatic differences in health between countries and within countries. But this is not a simple matter of rich and poor. A poor man in Glasgow is rich compared to the average Indian, but the Glaswegian's life expectancy is 8 years shorter. The Indian is dying of infectious disease linked to his poverty; the Glaswegian of violent death, suicide, heart disease linked to a rich country's version of disadvantage. In all countries, people at relative social disadvantage suffer health disadvantage, dramatically so. Within countries, the higher the social status of individuals the better is their health. These health inequalities defy usual explanations. Conventional approaches to improving health have emphasised access to technical solutions - improved medical care, sanitation, and control of disease vectors; or behaviours - smoking, drinking - obesity, linked to diabetes, heart disease and cancer. These approaches only go so far. Creating the conditions for people to lead flourishing lives, and thus empowering individuals and communities, is key to reduction of health inequalities. In addition to the scale of material success, your position in the social hierarchy also directly affects your health, the higher you are on the social scale, the longer you will live and the better your health will be. As people change rank, so their health risk changes. What makes these health inequalities unjust is that evidence from round the world shows we know what to do to make them smaller. This new evidence is compelling. It has the potential to change radically the way we think about health, and indeed society.

Promoting Recovery In Mental Health Nursing


Category: Books
Description: Promoting recovery from mental health problems is a guiding principle within modern mental health care. Working in partnership with service users, new practice techniques are being designed and delivered that can allow individuals to thrive within society and move towards a fulfilling life beyond their diagnosis. Recovery remains a broad and subjective term though and understanding what this means for your service users and how to implement recovery into your practice is an important challenge. Developed in partnership with Certitude - an influential charity providing support for people with mental health problems or learning disabilities - this book will answer all your questions about recovery in mental health nursing. It provides clear explanations and practical guidance that you can immediately bring into your work on placement.
