How to End the Autism Epidemic (Inglés) – J.B. Handley
How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue's co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what's causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it.
While many parents have heard the rhetoric that vaccines are safe and effective and that the science is settled about the relationship between vaccines and autism, few realize that in the 1960s, American children received three vaccines compared to the thirty-eight they receive today. Or that when parents are told that the odds of an adverse reaction are "one in a million," the odds are actually one in fifty. Or that in the 1980s, the rate of autism was one in ten thousand children. Today it's one in thirty-six.
Parents, educators, and social service professionals around the country are sounding an alarm that we are in the midst of a devastating public health crisis—one that corresponds in lockstep with an ever-growing vaccine schedule. Why do our public health officials refuse to investigate this properly—or even acknowledge it?
In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath.
While Handley's argument is unsparing, his position is ultimately moderate and constructive: we must continue to investigate the safety of vaccines, we must adopt a position of informed consent, and every individual vaccine must be considered on its own merits. This issue is far from settled. By refusing to engage with parents and other stakeholders in a meaningful way, our public health officials destroy the public trust and enable the suffering of countless children and families.
The HPV Vaccine: The Controversy, the Facts, and the Untold Dangers
of Mass Vaccination (Inglés) – Mary Holland, Kim Mack Rosenberg, Eileen Iorio
In 2006, following an expedited review, the Food and Drug Administration approved Merck & Co.'s Gardasil vaccine, a "preventive" vaccine targeting a limited range of strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), including two strains that are linked to the possible development of cervical cancers. In 2009, the FDA, in another "fast track" review, approved Cervarix, a similar vaccine by another pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline. In The HPV Vaccine, Mary Holland and Kim Mack Rosenberg, expert researchers on the making, marketing, and safety of vaccines, assess the quick popularity of the HPV vaccine.
They reveal the business behind the pharmaceutical and medical industries' push for it and how this effects the population it's most targeted toward, girls and women ages eleven to twenty-six. The insightful text is geared toward providing parents and young adults with the information they need to know to decide whether to give their children the vaccine or get it themselves. It's also for women's health organizations, health professionals, and members of the medical industry, who need to know what the effects of the vaccine on patients will be and the disturbing reasons that the pharmaceutical companies and the FDA released it despite disconcerting results.
Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak: The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of Mercury—a Known Neurotoxin—from Vaccines (Inglés) – Jr. Robert F. Kennedy
Over a decade ago, following a sharp rise in developmental disorders such as autism and ADHD, the mercury-containing preservative Thimerosal was widely believed to have been eliminated from vaccine supplies in the US and abroad. However, dangerous quantities of Thimerosal continue to be used, posing a significant threat to public health and leading to a crisis of faith in vaccine safety.
In this groundbreaking book, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Dr. Mark Hyman examine the research literature on Thimerosal and make a very clear statement about its potentially dangerous effects. In the past, the CDC, FDA, NIH, and AAP, as well as the US Congress, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the US Department of Agriculture, the European Medicines Agency, and the California Environmental Protection Agency have expressed concerns over the use of Thimerosal in vaccines. But despite the many voices calling for action, the media and policy makers have repeatedly failed to adequately address the issue.
Now, with Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, the goals are to educate parents, doctors, and health policy makers; to eliminate this toxic chemical from the world's vaccine supplies; to move toward safer alternatives; and to maintain or increase vaccination rates critical to the United States and developing nations. With safer options available, parents shouldn't have to worry about the devastating effects of vaccinating their children.
Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC (Inglés)
– Kevin Barry
Vaccine Whistleblower is a gripping account of four legally recorded phone conversations between Dr. Brian Hooker, a scientist investigating autism and vaccine research, and Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist in the vaccine safety division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Thompson, who is still employed at the CDC under protection of the federal Whistleblower Protection Act, discloses a pattern of data manipulation, fraud, and corruption at the highest levels of the CDC, the federal agency in charge of protecting the health of Americans. Thompson states, "Senior people just do completely unethical, vile things and no one holds them accountable."
This book nullifies the government's claims that "vaccines are safe and effective," and reveals that the government rigged research to cover up the link between vaccines and autism. Scientific truth and the health of American children have been compromised to protect the vaccine program and the pharmaceutical industry.
The financial cost of the CDC's corruption is staggering. The human cost is incalculable. Vaccine Whistleblower provides context to the implications of Thompson's revelations and directs the reader to political action.
Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC (Inglés) – James Ottar Grundvig
In 2000, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) carried out a secret mission to bury, skew, and manipulate data in six vaccine safety studies, in a coordinated effort to control the message that "vaccines do not cause autism." They did so via secret meetings and backtesting health-care data. The CDC invested tens of millions of dollars in a foreign health-care data analytics startup run by Danish scientist Poul Thorsen, a move to ensure that no link ever surfaced. But fate had other ideas. The agency soon learned it couldn't control Thorsen. In 2011, the US Justice Department indicted him for the theft of more than $1 million of CDC grant money.
Master Manipulator exposes the CDC's hidden agenda for the cover-up. Influenced by Big Pharma money, future high-paying jobs, and political lobbyists, CDC executives charted a course different than what the findings of earlier vaccine safety studies revealed. The CDC needed an outsider to "flatten" the results of the data, while building an exit strategy: a fall guy in case the secret plan was exposed. Thorsen fit the bill nicely, conducting studies overseas. But the CDC's plan backfired, as Thorsen took the money to the bank and the power went to his head. It would take years for his fraud scheme—funneling CDC grant money to a Danish university and then back to a CDC bank account he controlled—to play out.
Master Manipulator is a true story of fraud and betrayal, and an insider's view of what takes place behind the closed doors of agencies and drug companies, and with the people tasked to protect the health of American children. It's a cautionary tale of the dangers of blind trust in the government and the health-care industry.
The Moth in the Iron Lung: A Biography of Polio (Inglés) – Forrest Maready
A fascinating account of the world'' most famous disease—polio— told as you have never heard it before. Epidemics of paralysis began to rage in the early 1900s, seemingly out of nowhere. Doctors, parents, and health officials were at a loss to explain why this formerly unheard of disease began paralyzing so many children—usually starting in their legs, sometimes moving up through their abdomen and arms. For an unfortunate few, it could paralyze the muscles that allowed them to breathe.
Why did this disease start to become such a horrible problem during the late 1800s? Why did it affect children more often than adults? Why was it originally called teething paralysis by mothers and their doctors? Why were animals so often paralyzed during the early epidemics when it was later discovered most animals could not become infected? The Moth in the Iron Lung is a fascinating biography of this horrible paralytic disease, where it came from, and why it disappeared in the 1950s. If you've never explored the polio story beyond the tales of crippled children and iron lungs, this book will be sure to surprise.
Keto for Cancer: Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy as a Targeted
Nutritional Strategy (Inglés) – Miriam Kalamian EdM MS CNS
Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer. Keto for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, nutritionist Miriam Kalamian has written the first book to lay out comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many challenges associated with cancer, and particularly the deep nutritional overhaul involved with the ketogenic diet.
Kalamian, a leading voice in the keto movement, is driven by passion from her own experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son. Her book addresses the nuts and bolts of adopting the diet, from deciding whether keto is the right choice to developing a personal plan for smoothly navigating the keto lifestyle. It is invaluable for both beginners and seasoned users of the ketogenic diet, as well as for health-care professionals who need a toolkit to implement this targeted metabolic therapy.
The book guides readers to a deeper understanding of the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet―which extends well beyond simply starving cancer―emphasizing the powerful impact the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. Nutritional nuances are explored in sections such as "Fasting Protocols" and "Know What's in the Foods You Eat" while meal templates and tracking tools are provided in "Preparing Keto Meals."
Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy. Readers of Keto for Cancer are empowered to "get off the bench and get in the game." To that end, Kalamian offers tips on how to critically examine cancer-care options then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.
Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet: Using a Low-Carb, Fat-Burning Diet as
Metabolic Therapy (Inglés) – Ellen Davis MS
The ketogenic diet is a natural, nontoxic metabolic therapy being studied and utilized 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 make energy from both glucose and ketones (metabolic by-products of burning fat), but most cancer cells can only use glucose. Avoiding carbohydrates (starch and sugar) while enjoying delicious and healthy protein and fats will lower blood glucose and increase blood-ketone levels, resulting in a normal body state called nutritional ketosis. Research has shown that nutritional ketosis starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells and strengthening total body health.
This essential, fully referenced book is a practical guide for physicians, patients and caregivers, and provides step-by-step instructions for customizing the diet and clear explanations of the cutting-edge research on ketogenic therapies being done by Dr. Dominic D'Agostino's team at the University of South Florida and Dr. Thomas Seyfried's team at Boston College. The ketogenic diet for cancer is based on the consumption of whole, fresh foods and it can be used in addition to standard care or as a stand-alone treatment in wait-and-see situations.
Conquer Type 2 Diabetes with a Ketogenic Diet: A Practical Guide for Reducing
Your HBA1c and Avoiding Diabetic Complications (Inglés)
– Ellen Davis MS & Keith Runyan MD
Type 2 diabetes is a modern disease of carbohydrate intolerance, meaning your body isn't able to process carbohydrate (sugars and starches) normally. Consuming these foods results in high blood sugar, and over time, diabetic complications. Before the invention of insulin in the 1920s, physicians advised diabetics to avoid eating carbohydrates because of this intolerance. In contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with medications and insulin. This "eat carb and take medicine" method increases the cost of diabetic care and does nothing to resolve the underlying disease and progression.
The logical solution is to follow a low-carb ketogenic diet because it treats type 2 diabetes at the root cause. Avoiding carbs while enjoying foods rich in healthy fats and protein stabilizes blood sugar and reduces and in some cases, eliminates the need for diabetic medications. Conquer Type 2 Diabetes with a Ketogenic Diet has all the information you need to successfully take control of your diabetes. In addition to clear explanations of the science, this book includes personal success stories, information on blood sugar monitoring and insulin therapy, the foods to eat and to avoid, cooking tips, how to get started and personalize the diet, medication interactions and more.
The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes (Inglés) – Ellen Davis MS
Before the invention of insulin, type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients were advised to avoid sugar and starch (carbohydrate) and to eat a very low carb, ketogenic diet to control blood sugar. In contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with large doses of insulin. This "eat carb and take more insulin" method increases the cost of diabetic care and does nothing to protect the patient from symptoms and complications. Worse, it exposes T1D patients to the real danger of a fatally low blood-sugar episode (hypoglycemia).
The logical solution is to reduce both carb intake and insulin dosage. Avoiding carbs while enjoying foods rich in healthy fats and protein stabilizes blood sugar and reduces medication costs and the risk of long-term complications. The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes provides the tools and information you need to successfully take control of your diabetes. In addition to clear explanations of the science, you'll find personal success stories, lists of the foods to eat and to avoid, cooking tips, how to get started and personalize the diet, adapting basal and bolus insulin doses, and special considerations for children with T1D.
Fat for Fuel: A Revolutionary Diet to Combat Cancer, Boost Brain Power
and Increase Your Energy – Dr. Joseph Mercola
For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if cancer isn't a genetic disease after all? What if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm, and cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases as well—and show us a radical new path to optimal health?
In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what's really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.
Dr. Mercola shows you that you can take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel—and it's not what you've likely been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing—not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.
As you read this book, you'll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You'll finally understand the type of fuel it's designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You'll find detailed guidelines for starting and sticking with a ketogenic eating plan. And you won't have to wait a decade or two for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain at the cutting edge of this exciting new discipline, starting right now.
Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management and
Prevention of Cancer 1st Edition – Thomas Seyfried
The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited.
This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requiring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.
Tripping over the Truth: How the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Is Overturning
One of Medicine's Most Entrenched Paradigms – Travis Christofferson
A masterful synchronization of history and cutting-edge science shines new light on humanity's darkest diagnosis.
In the wake of the Cancer Genome Atlas project's failure to provide a legible roadmap to a cure for cancer, science writer Travis Christofferson illuminates a promising blend of old and new perspectives on the disease. Tripping over the Truth follows the story of cancer's proposed metabolic origin from the vaunted halls of the German scientific golden age to modern laboratories around the world. The reader is taken on a journey through time and science that results in an unlikely connecting of the dots with profound therapeutic implications.
Transporting us on a rich narrative of humanity's struggle to understand the cellular events that conspire to form malignancy, Tripping over the Truth reads like a detective novel, full of twists and cover-ups, blind-alleys and striking moments of discovery by men and women with uncommon vision, grit, and fortitude. Ultimately, Christofferson arrives at a conclusion that challenges everything we thought we knew about the disease, suggesting the reason for the failed war against cancer stems from a flawed paradigm that categorizes cancer as an exclusively genetic disease.
For anyone affected by this terrifying disease and the physicians who struggle to treat it, this book provides a fresh and hopeful perspective. It explores the new and exciting non-toxic therapies born from the emerging metabolic theory of cancer. These therapies may one day prove to be a turning point in the struggle against our ancient enemy. We are shown how the metabolic theory redraws the battle map, directing researchers to approach cancer treatment from a different angle, framing it more like a gentle rehabilitation rather than all-out combat. In a sharp departure from the current "targeted" revolution occurring in cancer pharmaceuticals, the metabolic therapies highlighted have one striking feature that sets them apart―the potential to treat all types of cancer because they exploit the one weakness that is common to every cancer cell: dysfunctional metabolism.
With contributions from Thomas Seyfried, PhD, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease; Miriam Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, author of Keto for Cancer; and Beth Zupec Kania, consultant nutritionist of The Charlie Foundation.
El sindrome del intestino y la psicologia GAPS: Tratamiento natural
– Natasha Campbell-McBride
New 2010 Edition with over 100 extra pages of information! Gut and Psychology Syndrome provides the information you need to heal a damaged digestive system. The perfect book for anyone suffering from Autism, Dyslexia, Depression, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, Schizophrenia, and any other condition that has a link with gut dysbiosis.
By E. Kerby (Salt Lake City, UT)
My husband on his own discovered a lot of these same principles and healed himself a few years ago. When we heard about this, we were surprised with how much the GAPS diet had in common with what he was doing.
The book contains a lot of research and good information, and it seems very credible. The information is presented in a way that makes sense to non-scientists.
If you're new to this, there is a series of YouTube videos with the author, and that is worth watching. (There are also many before & after videos of people who have done this program.) There is also a really interesting set of videos and an interview on the CHEESESLAVE blog; you can Google that.
I had waited to buy the book, because it is fairly expensive, but I am really glad that I bought it. After I started actually reading the book, I ordered a second copy to give to a friend of mine who has an Autistic child. I hope she will read it.
This book doesn't suggest anything magical; it does take time and work to prepare food that is good for us, BUT I think these principles are correct, and I think this will be worthwhile.
Devil in the Milk: Illness, Health and the Politics of A1 and A2 Milk – Keith B. Woodford
His groundbreaking work is the first internationally published book to examine the link between a protein in the milk we drink and a range of serious illnesses, including heart disease, Type 1 diabetes, autism, and schizophrenia.
These health problems are linked to a tiny protein fragment that is formed when we digest A1 beta-casein, a milk protein produced by many cows in the United States and northern European countries. Milk that contains A1 beta-casein is commonly known as A1 milk; milk that does not is called A2. All milk was once A2, until a genetic mutation occurred some thousands of years ago in some European cattle. A2 milk remains high in herds in much of Asia, Africa, and parts of Southern Europe. A1 milk is common in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe.
In Devil in the Milk, Keith Woodford brings together the evidence published in more than 100 scientific papers. He examines the population studies that look at the link between consumption of A1 milk and the incidence of heart disease and Type 1 diabetes; he explains the science that underpins the A1/A2 hypothesis; and he examines the research undertaken with animals and humans. The evidence is compelling: We should be switching to A2 milk.
A2 milk from selected cows is now marketed in parts of the U.S., and it is possible to convert a herd of cows producing A1 milk to cows producing A2 milk.
This is an amazing story, one that is not just about the health issues surrounding A1 milk, but also about how scientific evidence can be molded and withheld by vested interests, and how consumer choices are influenced by the interests of corporate business.

The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the
Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable
– Stephen D. Phinney, Jeff S. Volek
Carbohydrate restricted diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught. As a result, doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and nurses may have strong opinions about low carbohydrate dieting, but in many if not most cases, these views are not grounded in science.
Now, whether you are a curious healthcare professional or just a connoisseur of diet information, two New York Times best-selling authors provide you with the definitive resource for low carbohydrate living.
Doctors Volek and Phinney share over 50 years of clinical experience using low carbohydrate diets, and together they have published more than 200 research papers and chapters on the topic. Particularly in the last decade, much has been learned about the risks associated with insulin resistance (including but not limited to metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and type-2 diabetes), and how this condition is far better controlled by carbohydrate restriction than with drugs.
In this book, you will learn why:
- Carbohydrate restriction is the proverbial 'silver bullet' for managing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type-2 diabetes.
- Restricting carbohydrate improves blood glucose and lipids while reducing inflammation, all without drugs.
- Dietary saturated fat is not a demon when you are low carb adapted.
- Dietary sugars and refined starches are not needed to feed your brain or fuel exercise.
- Long-term success involves much more than simply cutting out carbs.
- Electrolyte and mineral management are key to avoiding side effects and ensuring success.
- Trading up from sugars and starches to a cornucopia of nutrient-rich, satisfying, and healthy foods is empowering.
- Studying hunter-gathers' diets provides clues to how best formulate a low carbohydrate diet.
- This is a great book for health-minded individuals.
- It is an excellent book for healthcare professionals.
Best of all, it is the perfect gift for health-minded individuals to share with their doctors, dietitians, and nutritionists.
The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance
– Jeff S. Volek, Stephen D. Phinney
A Revolutionary Program to Extend Your Physical and Mental Performance Envelope.
Our recent book 'The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living' was written for health care professionals, championing the benefits of carbohydrate restriction to manage insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type-2 diabetes.
In response, our athlete friends asked "What about us?"
This companion book is our answer, and it could be titled: 'The Art and Science of Avoiding the BONK'.
But actually, it is much much more than that. The keto-adapted athlete benefits from superior fuel flow not only when nearing glycogen depletion, but also during training, recovery, and in response to resistance exercise as well.
"On a well designed ketogenic diet as recommended by Jeff and Steve, I consume up to 4200 Calories per day while maintaining 6-7% body fat. This transformation has increased my power to mass ratio and allows a high level of performance in a range of activities. Equally if not more important is the efficiency with which I operate in every facet of my life. My energy level in the keto-adapted state is constant and nver undulates."

Stop Alzheimer's Now!: How to Prevent & Reverse Dementia, Parkinson's,
ALS, Multiple Sclerosis & Other Neurodegenerative Disorders
– Bruce Fife ND, Russell L Blaylock MD
More than 35 million people have dementia today. Each year 4.6 million new cases occur worldwide-one new case every 7 seconds. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. Parkinson's disease, another progressive brain disorder, affects about 4 million people worldwide. Millions more suffer with other neurodegenerative disorders. The number of people affected by these destructive diseases continues to increase every year. Dementia and other forms of neurodegeneration are not a part of the normal aging process.
The brain is fully capable of functioning normally for a lifetime, regardless of how long a person lives. While aging is a risk factor for neurodegeneration, it is not the cause! Dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are disease processes that can be prevented and successfully treated. This book outlines a program using ketone therapy and diet that is backed by decades of medical and clinical research and has proven successful in restoring mental function and improving both brain and overall health. You will learn how to prevent and even reverse symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis (MS), Huntington's disease, epilepsy, diabetes, stroke, and various forms of dementia.
The information in this book is useful not only for those who are suffering from neurodegenerative disease but for anyone who wants to be spared from ever encountering one or more of these devastating afflictions. These diseases don't just happen overnight. They take years, often decades, to develop. In the case of Alzheimer's disease, approximately 70 percent the brain cells responsible for memory are destroyed before symptoms become noticeable. You can stop Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases before they take over your life. The best time to start is now.
Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health
– William Davis
With over a million copies sold, Dr. William Davis's Wheat Belly startled, angered and informed the unwitting "healthy whole grain"—consuming public about this creation of genetics research called modern wheat-the worst possible thing to promote in the human diet. Removing wheat is the most powerful strategy for regaining control over metabolism, weight and health since, well, sliced bread.
Getting rid of wheat is only the first step in taking back control over health and life and achieving total health. Many of these lessons have been learned in the years since the original Wheat Belly was released, lessons played out on the broad public stage of over one million readers.

He includes strategies for managing nutritional supplements in a wheat-free lifestyle and additional steps to help:

Even if you're already feeling better without wheat, The Wheat Belly Guide to Total Health will help you improve your performance in school, at work, in sports, in relationships-in virtually all settings we encounter in life.
Alimenta Tu Cerebro: El Sorprendente Poder de La Flora Intestinal Para Sanar
y Proteger Tu Cerebrode, de Por Vida – David Perlmutter
David Perlmutter, autor del bestseller Cerebro de pan, vuelve a la carga con un asombroso dato: la flora intestinal influye de manera directa en cada aspecto de nuestra salud vital, incluido el sistema nervioso.
Recientes hallazgos cientificos han demostrado que las bacterias que se encuentran en el intestino interactuan de manera sorprendentemente activa con el cerebro, influyendo asi en su funcionamiento. En este libro, el doctor Perlmutter nos explica como la salud de nuestra flora intestinal llega a determinar nuestro apetito, nuestro estado de animo e incluso el riesgo de padecer deficit de atencion, alzheimer y esclerosis multiple, entre otros padecimientos.
Ciertas decisiones aparentemente inofensivas, como tomar antibioticos, beber agua clorada, comer alimentos procesados e infestados de pesticidas o incluso un nacimiento por cesarea pueden causar cambios prolongados en nuestro microbioma y, por lo tanto, en la salud de nuestro cerebro. La buena noticia es que este puede ser facilmente rehabilitado y su condicion optima puede recuperarse a traves de ciertos habitos alimenticios que aprenderas en este libro, tan simples que no solamente te ayudaran a perder peso, sino a restaurar tu flora intestinal y a mejorar tu salud mental de por vida."
Guia Topografica del Cuerpo Humano (Spanish) – Andrew Biel
Esta guía es el mejor medio para introducirse en el conocimiento de la anatomía y para aprender las destrezas de la palpación. El lector aprenderá a "viajar con las manos" a través de las regiones corporales. Para ello, el libro se divide en siete capítulos, seis de los cuales se centran en las regiones del cuerpo; primero se explican el contorno topográfico que se aprecia a flor de piel y la fascia; luego siguen los huesos y puntos óseos de referencia; y por último, se accede a otras estructuras como ligamentos, nervios, arterias y ganglios linfáticos.
Esta segunda edición revisada y ampliada se acompaña de un DVD
Guía topográfica del cuerpo humano te ayudará a conseguir:
- Observar la superficie anatómica del cuerpo y explorar con confianza
la piel y las estructuras fasciales.
- Palpar los huesos y puntos óseos de referencia de cada región del
cuerpo y explorar las conexiones entre ellos y los tejidos blandos.
- Palpar cada músculo desde su origen a su inserción, sintiendo y

- Palpar las principales estructuras articulares como ligamentos y bolsas,
que son lugares habituales donde se localiza el dolor y las lesiones.
- Palpar los puntos anatómicos de referencia de cada región del cuerpo
que sirven para identificar la localización de nervios, vasos sanguíneos
y ganglios linfáticos subyacentes.
