Drug-Induced Nutrient
Depletion Handbook


This book represents a compilation of the numerous nutrition-depletion side effects of commonly utilized medications. This information is presented in a readily accessible format. A large amount of difficult to obtain information is placed at the fingertips of the reader. In addition to presenting nutritional information to the practitioner, the editors seek to raise the level of awareness as to the frequency with which drugs may cause nutritional deficiencies, and in some cases, actually worsen the ailments that the drugs were intended to treat. This is an often overlooked aspect of patient management, which goes hand-in-hand with the less than optimal understanding of nutrition possessed by most primary care physicians.

The Nutrition Almanac

The Bestselling Guide to Better Eating for Better Health--Newly Updated and Expanded! The Nutrition Almanac is a favorite reference in more than 2.5 million American homes for good reason. It is a complete nutritional guide that empowers you to take charge of your own health. It offers quick answers to questions about nutrients plus gives you everything you need to plan a total nutritional program, all in a friendly down-to-earth style. This edition has been painstakingly expanded and updated to put thousands more of the latest scientific facts and findings about nutrition and health at your fingertips.

ADD Nutrition Solution

Zimmerman prefers the term attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) to attention deficit disorder (ADD). The teacher and nutritional biochemist posits prevention as the first priority in dealing with AD/HD, but once it is manifest, the most effective approach is to treat causes rather than symptoms--and Ritalin, she believes, is a symptom reliever rather than a treater. She discusses the various causes and stresses the importance of a carefully worked out diagnosis. Once that is reached, treatment can proceed realistically. Proper management of the child's activities and attitudes at home and at school is vital. Suitable foods, attractively prepared and presented, constitute the main element in her program, and she counsels sitting down, relaxing, and chewing at meals.

PDR for Herbal Medicines

Interest in and usage of herbal preparations as alternatives to pharmaceuticals has exploded in recent years. Having a complete herbal reference on hand is now absolutely necessary for doctors and other healers when a patient wants to add herbs--let's say St. John's wort--to his drug regimen. Should the patient stop taking the Paxil he's been on for depression, and if so, how long must he wait before he can start taking the St. Johns wort, and what's the recommended dosage? The PDR for Herbal Medicines will go a long way towards answering such questions. The physician in this case would learn, after consulting the PDR, that "St. John's wort taken concomitantly with an SSRI ... may lead to an increased effect and possible toxicity 'serotonin syndrome', e.g., sweating, tremor, flushing, confusion and agitation." The same physician will also learn that the German Federal Health Authority's Commission E, which has studied the effects of hundreds of herbs, approved St. John's wort for depressive moods, among other conditions.

Beating Cancer With Nutrition

Patrick Quillin has emerged with a newly-updated version of his informative book, Beating Cancer with Nutrition. As he states, "Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can temporarily reduce tumor burden, but these therapies do not change the underlying causes of the disease. Comprehensive cancer treatment must include an aggressive nutrition component, which can increase life expectancy by 12 to 21 fold along with better chances for complete remission."

The book outlines strategies for: (1) decreasing the toxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation with specific nutrients; (2) starving the cancer by lowering glucose through dietary changes and supplements; and (3) decreasing the tumor burden with the use of anticancer nutrients and botanicals.

Kids, Herbs, & Health

By emphasizing self-care technique that include herbal treatments, holistic approaches, and lifestyle changes, parents can treat their child's coughs, fevers, minor injuries, and other common childhood ailments - and this book shows them how.

Botanical Safety Handbook

Provides readily accessible safety data for some 600 commonly sold herbs. Plants are listed by genus, with alternate names and common names included. Each entry lists the part of the plant used and what it is commonly used for, its active ingredient(s), its safety classification, a notice regarding possible dangers, and additional notes.

Nutrition Applied to Injury
Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine

Textbook of Nutritional Medicine

The Textbook of Nutritional Medicine continues the Werbach tradition of providing practitioners of nutritional medicine the most up-to-date references on specific nutrients for specific conditions. The book covers the research on supplemental and dietary approaches to 82 illnesses from Acne Rosacea to Vertigo. Extensive reference lists follow one or two sentence summaries of the published review article or research study, for those who wish to research further. The reviewed literature includes articles in foreign languages.

Food Pets Die For

As the publisher of Ann N. Martin's book, "Food Pets Die For," I am most impressed with the thorough and meticulous investigation the author undertook for seven years. Her findings and facts are verified and footnoted throughout the book, revealing a shocking but truthful inside look at what is legally allowed in pet food. Martin has taken tremendous risks to uncover information that has never been published before. Her book is the first to look at this issue in depth.

Nutritional Cost of Prescription Drugs

Many of the most widely used prescription drugs cause the body to lose nutrients and, as a result, cause nutritional health problems. Based on extensive scientific research, The Nutritional Cost of Prescription Drugs is the first book for the general public to describe the nutrient losses caused by prescription drugs and present ways to combat these losses and maintain good nutritional health. It's essential reading for all prescription drug users.

Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills

Primarily for the lay public, but also for those trained in medical science and biology, neurosurgeon Blaylock releases a well-researched bombshell--that excitotoxins, substances added to food and beverages and including glutamate (MSG) and aspartate (NutraSweet), damage nerve cells in the brain, and are particularly dangerous to the elderly, children, and those at high risk of neurodegenerative diseases. Must have the food industry flacks working overtime.
