Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Those looking to learn more about how they can naturally detoxify their body can find the answers to that and more in a new book titled “Chelation and Other Detox Methods to Save Your Life,” by Dr. Edward Kondrot, a world renowned natural health doctor. The book is scheduled for release on March 30, 2015 and will be available online and in stores. The book features interviews Dr. Kondrot conducted with 16 leading natural health experts in the country, offering a wide variety of information on detoxifying the body naturally.

“With the way we live our lives today there are many ways we are surrounded by toxins,” explains Dr. Edward Kondrot, founder of the Healing The Eye & Wellness Center. He is also the immediate past president of the Arizona Homeopathic and Integrative Medical Association, and the clinic director of Integrative Medicine of the American Medical College of Homeopathy. “These toxins can become such a part of our body and lives that they begin to wreak havoc on our health. The good news is there are numerous effective ways to help detoxify the body of them.”

Unfortunately, everyone in the country has been exposed to a wide variety of toxins. They enter our water supply, food, air, and more. They are largely put into the environment by the way we live our lives, including using pesticides, chemical fertilizers, sewage, cadmium, mercury, and other routes. Those toxins and heavy metals can build up in the body, leading to numerous health problems, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

The new book, “Chelation and Other Detox Methods to Save Your Life,” provides information on how toxins can be removed from the body in order to restore health, including improving one’s memory and vision. Topics covered in the book include detoxifying naturally, Chelation Therapy, mercury, how our planet is poisoned, holistic dental care, oxidative therapies, and helping the metabolism. The book covers the most effective natural treatments available to us in those areas.

“The information provided in this book is ground breaking, based on the most current research, and not to be missed,” adds Dr. Kondrot. “Whether you need the treatments or you work in a medical practice that provides them, you will come away learning something new and helpful.”

Leading natural health experts interviewed in the “Chelation and Other Detox Methods to Save Your Life” book include Terry Chappell, Bruce Dooley, Dennis Courtney, Dorothy Merritt, Robban Sica, Pieter DeWet, John Trowbridge, Marina Johnson, Robert Rowen, Garry Gordon, Lee Cowden, Martin Dayton, Jeff Kotulski, David Nebbling, W.

“When It’s Cancer” Self-Help Book to Take Charge of Cancer

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2006

A new book “When It’s Cancer: The 10 Essential Steps to Follow After Your Diagnosis” by Toni Bernay, Ph.D., and Saar Porrath, M.D. provides readers with a practical 10-step program that empowers patients and their loved ones to take charge and be proactive about cancer treatment and care as well as a series of self-assessments, worksheets, and checklists for tracking information to make intelligent, well-reasoned choices. Below you will find an excerpt from the book.

Once your pain management team is in place, you can work together to create a plan that anticipates every level of pain and institutes measures for alleviating it. Remember, the key to effective pain management is early intervention — and that starts with you. You need to inform your team when you’re hurting, where, and how much. This is why being able to talk with them comfortably and candidly is so important. (We’ve provided tools ahead that might help with this conversation.)

As you meet with your team members, you might want to share with them the following pain management model. It establishes a continuum of care to track with pain that ranges from mild to severe.

1. Complementary and alternative therapies: We recommend CAM therapies as a starting point because they are the least toxic. Your body will be exposed to plenty of toxins during cancer treatment; it doesn’t need more. Also, with CAM therapies, you spare your body from the side effects of yet another medication. Acupuncture, chiropractic, hypnosis, massage, and meditation are among the options that have proven successful in controlling pain.

2. Psychotropic drugs: Mediated via neurotransmitters, these medications help manage emotional distresses like depression and anxiety, both of which aggravate pain. Since scientists have determined that neurotransmitters inhabit the entire body, not just the brain, psychotropics have become some of the most frequently prescribed drugs for pain management.

3. Over-the-counter medications: Among the most common OTC pain relievers are acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen. They may be enough to alleviate mild pain.

4. Low-dose opioids: Seventy to 90 percent of cancer patients control moderate pain with oral opioids such as Darvon, Percodan, and Percocet. The long-term use of these medications has not been shown to worsen pain. If that should happen in individual cases, the patients may be advised to switch to an opioid other than the one they have been using.

5. Slow-or fast-release opioids: Perhaps the best known of the opioids is morphine, which is sold under several brand names. It’s the most commonly prescribed medication for severe pain and is available in slow-or fast-release forms. Other slow-release opioids, which tend to have longer-lasting effects, include Fentanyl, Levorphanol, methadone, MS Contin, and Oramorph. In the fast-release category are codeine, hydromorphone, and oxycodone. When taken as prescribed, opioids — though quite potent — rarely lead to addiction.

6. Invasive procedures: For acute pain and some chronic pain, a nerve block can provide temporary relief. In this procedure, the physician injects a local anesthetic into or around nerves or below the skin at the site of pain. The anesthetic interrupts the transmission of pain signals to the brain, providing relief for up to several hours. In some instances where drug therapy is ineffective, the pain pathways may be redirected or severed through surgery or controlled with implanted devices.

New book by Heather Smith sends inspirational letters to readers

RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) March 23, 2015

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, nearly 15 million adults suffer from some form of depression. Author Heather Smith believes that many of these wounded souls can lean on Christ to discover innate happiness.

In the new book, “Extravagant Love: Stories of Hope and Inspiration During Difficult Times” (published by WestBow Press), Smith provides readers with motivational letters to inspire them when going through difficult times. Each chapter is written as a personalized letter and begins with an inspirational Bible verse that matches that chapter’s theme.

The message of Smith’s book is that God’s love and compassion heals all. She tells readers that God cares deeply for them and offers personal stories from her own life to demonstrate God’s influence in her life.

Smith hopes readers will understand that God loves all of His children and wants to walk with them in their suffering.

“It is my deepest prayer that whoever reads this book will grasp the fact that He loves each of us,” Smith said. “He wants to be with His children in the good times and in the hard times.”
