Understanding Hashimoto's Encephalopathy is the first book ever published about this rare autoimmune disease. Hashimoto's Encephalopathy ("HE") - often referred to as Steroid Responsive Encephalopathy Associated with Thyroiditis ("SREAT") - strikes people of all ages, in all walks of life, and takes a devastating toll on patients and their loved ones. Nevertheless, the disease is poorly understood, and continues to puzzle physicians and researchers around the globe. As a result, patients with HE often remain undiagnosed for months or even years, if they are lucky enough to be diagnosed at all. Here, readers will learn the symptoms, diagnostic criteria and challenges, and treatment options for HE, as well as a discussion of the scientific theories regarding the causes and diagnostic markers of the disease. For clinicians and others interested in reviewing the latest scientific research, the book contains citations and internet links to over 100 scientific articles about HE/SREAT published between 2010 and 2013. At the heart of the book are first-person narratives from 48 HE patients and caregivers in the US, the UK, Europe, and Australia, which provide a never-before-available glimpse into the debilitating effects of HE as told by those who live with the disease day in and day out. Patients describe their symptoms, their struggle to find a diagnosis, and their treatment experiences. The book includes a separate section devoted to the stories of pediatric HE/SREAT patients, as told by their parents. Understanding Hashimoto's Encephalopathy offers a comprehensive picture of HE/SREAT that is helpful for physicians new to the disease yet told in language accessible to the layman. DISCLAIMER: As with all books, Understanding Hashimoto's Encephalopathy is not intended to be and should not be considered to constitute medical advice.

With a broader understanding of the disease and the available options, patients are able to make more informed choices, and doctors are able to provide more tailored care.

The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this thoroughly updated second edition is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's Disease.

Now includes a sneak peek of Undoctored--the new book from Dr. Davis! A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems. Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls "wheat bellies." According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It's due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic--and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In Wheat Belly, Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering and agribusiness being sold to the American public as "wheat"--and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new, wheat-free lifestyle. Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, along with case studies from men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in their health after waving goodbye to wheat, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at what is truly making Americans sick and an action plan to clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.

One out of eight women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. One out of 3 women will experience some form of cancer in their life time. I was one of those statistics even though I was living a healthy lifestyle that consisted of organic foods, regular exercise, massage, Chiropractic care and colonics. How could somebody like me develop Breast Cancer? That very question led to thousands of hours of research, study, soul-searching and prayer. It all came together as The 7 Essentials - 7 basic steps that are necessary for preventing and healing cancer, or any dis-ease for that matter. Chapter 1 - Why Do I Have Breast Cancer? Scientists have come to the conclusion that cancer is a preventable dis-ease that requires major lifestyle changes. Discover how to avoid the 7 Cancer Triggers that could possibly create cancer in your body. Chapter 2 - Essential # 1 - Let Food Be Your Medicine Stop feeding the cancer by avoiding the foods that "feed" the cancer. Increasing your consumption of specific vegetables, oils and low glycemic fruits can reduce your Breast Cancer risk by 60-70%. Find out which foods lead to inflammation and dis-ease while others turn on protective, anti-cancer genes. Experiment with a sample 7 day anti-cancer meal plan. Chapter 3 - Essential # 2 - Reduce Your Toxic Exposure Is it possible to escape the effects of the thousands of chemicals that you may be exposed to every day? There are clearly environmental links to Breast Cancer but there are specific steps that you can take to reduce your toxic exposure. Learn how to make conscious choices about the products you keep in your home, the cosmetics you apply and the internal toxins that are affecting your body. Chapter 4 - Essential # 3 - Balance Your Energy Our body is 1 billionth physical matter and the rest is all energy. Our body runs on an energetic and electrical system that can be measured with instrumentation. There are specific healing arts and therapeutic tools that can help bring the body to balance, ultimately strengthening and boosting the Immune System. Proper hormone balance and revitalizing sleep can activate cancer-protective genes and boost the Immune System. Chapter 5 - Essential # 4 - Heal Your Emotional Wounds In order to truly heal your body, you must heal your emotional wounds. Do you have the "Cancer Personality"? If so, your responses to stress and how you cope with it are often learned behaviors. You can change those learned behaviors and the bio-chemistry of your body with your attitude and your thought patterns. Strengthen your "happiness muscle" with 8 specific steps. Chapter 6 - Essential # 5 - Embrace Biological Dentistry Metals in your teeth have the potential to increase estrogen signaling in the breast tissue. These metallo-estrogens have been found in Breast Cancer tissue biopsies. Toxicities from root canals have been associated with most cancers. Learn how to take steps to detox these poisonous materials that may be compromising your Immune System and Meridian System. Chapter 7 - Essential # 6 - Repair Your Body with Therapeutic Plants The United States National Library of Medicine has a data base of hundreds of thousands of citations and abstracts of bio-medical literature and journals giving evidence of the benefits of Natural Medicine. There are specific plant compounds that have been shown to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Others boost the Immune System and support the body's ability to heal. Enjoy foods that detoxify carcinogens, inhibit tumor growth and even reduce the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy. Chapter 8 - Essential # 7 - Adopt Very Early Detection Would you be interested in technology and blood work that could potentially discover cancer on a small cellular level before it had a chance to develop into a large tumor? Mammography has not decreased Breast Cancer mortality rate.

This work is a guidebook for clinicians who are involved in treating depressive patients and also serves the research scientists who are working on the psychopharmacological mechanisms of antidepressant actions and psychopathological mechanisms underlying mood disorders. Mood disorders such as major depressive disorder (MDD), bipolar disorder (BPD) and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) are the most disabling disorders that are among the most expensive of all medical illnesses. The pathophysiology of mood disorders is very complex and involves many mechanisms like circadian rhythm disruption, sleep abnormalities, melatonin rhythm abnormalities and alterations in melatonin receptor mechanisms, abnormalities in monoaminergic neurotransmitter mechanisms, glutamatergic release mechanisms, hippocampal neurogenesis, and abnormal immune and cytokine release mechanisms. Many antidepressants that are in clinical use today including the recently introduced novel agents like agomelatine or other antidepressants cause clinical remission by resynchronizing disrupted circadian rhythms and melatonin receptor functions, enhancing monoaminergic neurotransmission, promoting hippocampal neurogenesis, and regulating immune mechanisms. This book explains various etiological factors that are involved in the pathogenesis of mood disorders and the mechanisms of therapeutic actions of antidepressants including the recently introduced agomelatine and other antidepressants that exhibit rapid onset of action with greater efficacy and fewer side effects. .
