New Book: Cannabis for Chronic Pain

cannabis-for-chronic-pain

Dr. Rav Ivker’s new book, Cannabis for Chronic Pain: A Proven Prescription for Using Marijuana to Relieve Your Pain and Heal Your Life, is an excellent resource for non-opioid pain relief solutions. First released in September 2017, it is a comprehensive and authoritative guide for using medical marijuana to treat chronic pain. The new softcover edition now makes the book more widely accessible to the general public.

With the opioid crisis continuing to accelerate (opioids killed more than 115 people per day in 2016, more than any year on record), patients, doctors and public health officials are actively seeking answers and alternatives. A promising solution to this deepening crisis may lie in a concurrent trend – the rapidly growing medical marijuana industry. Continue reading “New Book: Cannabis for Chronic Pain”

Dr. Mark Hyman’s New Book: “Food. What the Heck Should I Eat?”

This blog was written by Dr. Mark Hyman about his new book, Food. What the Heck Should I Eat? (Article reposted with permission from Dr. Mark Hyman.)
* * *

food-what-the-heck-should-i-eatEating healthy is more confusing than ever. I’ve been studying nutrition for 35 years and found that even experts are confused by the science. If the people we look to for nutritional guidance keep changing their views, no wonder the rest of us are so overwhelmed!

You know what I’m talking about. One day eggs are unhealthy, then the next day they are a miracle food. One year the government tells us to eat bread, pasta, and other carbohydrates as the foundation of our diet, and the next it tells us to cut carbs. The US Dietary Guidelines told us 35 years ago that all our health problems were derived from eating fat and recommended we eat fat “only sparingly.” Over three decades later, they suddenly learned fat wasn’t so bad for us.

Then you’ve got the dogmatists who believe you must adhere 100% to a particular plan to be lean and healthy, whether that plan be vegan, Paleo, vegetarian, Mediterranean, raw food, ketogenic, high-fat, low-fat or omnivore.

toxin-solutionIf you or someone you love is suffering from an autoimmune condition, type 2 diabetes, cancer, dementia, or any chronic health condition, then I have an essential resource to share with you. Dr. Joseph Pizzorno’s latest book, The Toxin Solution, is a groundbreaking book that uncovers how toxins are the drivers of countless health problems. He clearly explains the processes in which toxins cause disease and presents an 8- week, scientifically proven step-by-step program to rid your body of these toxins and regain your health.

Groundbreaking New Book: THE TOXIN SOLUTION

toxin-solutionTHE TOXIN SOLUTION: How Hidden Poisons in the Air, Water, Food, and Products We Use Are Destroying Our Health—AND WHAT WE CAN DO TO FIX IT

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, obesity, dementia, and arthritis are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Not only are these conditions common, but they are costly and often preventable health problems. Despite advances in modern medicine and technology, today more than ever, people are suffering from chronic illnesses through all stages of life.

I have been involved in medicine now for almost half a century as a researcher, student, clinician, teacher, lecturer, author and advocate at the local, state and federal levels. Over this time, I have taught tens of thousands of students and doctors, authored or co-authored 11 books, written over 100 articles in scientific journals and cared for tens of thousands of patients either directly or indirectly through sophisticated corporate wellness programs that I designed and helped implement.
