5-0 out of 5 stars Change your eating, change your life...
"I believe in listening to the hunger of your body, and of your heart. Begin to actually look inside and see what it is you really, really want with your relationship with food, and how to get there." ~Geneen Roth
5-0 out of 5 stars Life saver 100% Recomended
You will hear from Geneen Roth herself her story and how to break free from emotional eating, im 27 years old and beign fat as a child I started to diet very early on in my life, as long as I can remember I have been on a diet, I started my first diet when i was 10 years old, so as you can imagine my life has been centered on loosing wheight and after loosing it gaining it again an so on for what it seem like an eternity.
5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST have book!!!!
This book and ANY Geneen Roth book is a life changer.I think her bold honesty about herself makes is ok to start being honest withyourself.She will change your life!I got more out of reading her books than therapy!!She has been there and done that.Have you ever gone through a drive in and ordered enough for an entire family but it was just for you.Then you say to the little speaker things like, 'and my kids want xxx' and you don't have kids!! When we eat in the middle of the night and no one sees it....we have ourselves convinced that doesn't count.The best of the book(s) is not just how she can bring the honesty out of the closet but she really address how emotions and eating go together and what we are really doing.Brilliant!!The work book she also has is really deep!If you want to deal with your emotional eating there is no other way to handle it than by Geneen Roth.She is the best! (and I am not related to her or a personal friend!) Like I said the key to her books is she has REALLY been there and done that and won the battle.I would give more than five stars if I could. It is a life changer!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Mehmet Oz is a Renaissance man of cardiac care, combining yoga, aromatherapy, hypnosis, energy healing, music therapy, acupuncture, and visual imagery into his surgery practice at the Complementary Care Unit of New York City's Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He's adamant that the relationship between traditional and alternative medicine should be symbiotic, not mutually exclusive. His patients are proof of this: when treated holistically, not as just "another transplant patient" with a plaque-addled heart, they perceive less pain during surgery and recuperation, are less likely to suffer depression, and heal more quickly.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The Heart Can Thrive on Positive Thoughts.
Dr. Oz, the heart wizard, is of Turkish descent and attempts to combine East and West traditions of healing during post-surgery.He is a heart surgeon located in New York City.First of all,he is searching for the elusive one universal healing endeavor.Some things we all need are recommended such as Love is a major healing force, as is religious faith in one God.He is of the opinion that modern medicine is not perfect.Nothing is perfect, not even beauty, he says.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Combination
The view that all types of medicine (western and eastern) working together makes sense.This book seems to encorage a balance between both.I enjoyed it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not For Me

5-0 out of 5 stars WELL-RESEARCHED AND VERY HELPFUL
An excellent source of information. This book, published in 2003, is exhaustively researched, she cites medical and research studies involving hundreds and thousands of subjects, she covers the newest technologies and medications. The only thing missing from her book (because it was published a few years ago) is the very latest information about the potential dangers of Fosamax and the class-action lawsuits about the death of bone in the jaw that has caused people to have their jaws removed.She provides excellent suggestions for improving bone health, including exercise, dietary changes, supplements, and other ways to beat osteoporosis. She doesn't say that osteoporosis is a myth, she just debunks some of the myths surrounding this condition.
5-0 out of 5 stars +Very informative
This book was very informative and helped me decide to stop taking Actonol.Very eye-opening.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read If You Are "Borderline"
This book was well-researched and very readable. I was able quite easily to verify the author's conclusions against the underlying medical literature she cites. Much of it is on the internet.The book provides a needed "balance" concerning all of the hype about osteoporosis.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, not for believing this , but for the choice;
Yes, much of Clark's work seems extreme, perhaps if mainstream medicine was a little more intellectually honest, we wouldn't need to go so far off the 'course'. For instance; When early detection is credited for longer lives, consider that in most cases, all of the 'extended' life is the time that the test was moved up,(if you took the test a year sooner, you lived an 'extra' year), ie; no real increase. Consider that many medical tests,(biopsies and mammographies), actually force open 'scar'-sealed cancer cells that never would've entered the bloodstream if left alone. Consider that many types of cancer are known by your doctor to kill you at the same point in your painful chemo and radiation treatments as you would've died , without pain, if not treated at all, yet they do their best to keep that fact unknown to their patients. Consider how the medical establishment at large claim that diet has minimal effect on helping patients,(have you ever eaten hospital food)? Ifphysicians want us to stop patronizing the 'kooks', then they had better start learning, and passing on, the truth. (Add to Mr Lewandoski): You confuse the mean, median, and mode. If you remove infant deaths and deaths from formerly untreatable war injuries from the "average age" of death, the population often lived aslong as,(and in better shape than), our current 'averages', and without all the supposed help of our modern hospitals and nursing homes. There was never an historical time when the average man was simply dropping dead at thirty, unless he was shot.

1-0 out of 5 stars 1:8000 v. 1:2
In response to the eloquent review written by the esteemed, Corey F.Dyok.Sir, in your review you have proposed that the cancer rate has skyrocketed from 1:8000 to 1:2... brilliant!In a brief review of the history of cancer for the lesser informed.Cancer has been documented in the literature for over 5,000 years.Over the past 10,000 years, life expectancy remained at 30-years until the past 150 years when life expectancy dramatically rose to 70-years."During the past 150 years, there has been a progressive elimination of infectous diseases as a major cause of death, and because most children now survive to reproductive age a sudden population explosion has ensued"[Cairns, John].So, plain and simply, diseases of old age occur frequently because we now have an aged society.And the diseases of old age are cardiovascular disease and cancer. 1-0 out of 5 stars Is this lady for real?
People will believe anything.This book is full of proposperous claims, and scientifically impossible devices.The idea of a 9V battery "zapping" parasited deep in body tissues is most ridiculase.Last time I checked, the skin was quite an insulator. The book has no hard facts to back up all the claims.Where are the many people that are cured from these cancers and even HIV/AIDS.There are none, because the only diaganosis cured were tested by some hocus pocus in the quacks private practice.No medically diagonosed cases have ever been cured by this money grubbing con aritist.The book tries to generate fear about being contaminated by everyday living.The cure, send money for off the wall products and supplements with no quality control packing.If you would by the brooklin bridge, this book is for you. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing.
Morgan Menzie's Diary of an anorexic girl is truly amazing and heartfelt. It is by far one of the best diaries that i have ever read. It goes deep into Blythes descent into Anorexia and to her recovery. I used to anorexic, so this truly touched me. Though it may be triggering to someone who is still battling an ED it is worth the Read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Talk About Real!!!
Morgan Menzie's book was the first diary of an eating disorder I read, and is the reason why I continue to read more ED books. She unlike many ED authors talked about things other that just her eating disorder, such as relationships with friends, family and boyfriends. It's not a book that's all about anorexia but does emphasize more so than other subjects in her diary.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book Ever Written
This book was probably the best book that I ever read. I absolutely loved it. I couldn't put it down. When Blythe would be so close in getting a boyfriend and then fly off the handle it would get me worked up, and it made me want to tell her "Calm down. Do you know what you doing?" I would get happy for her when she was so close to a boyfriend and something to bring happiness into her life, and then she would do something crazy and destroy all my hopes of her being happy. I couldn't believe that Becca was so stupid and didn't realize that she wasn't getting better. I can't believe that she just believed the food charts that Blythe did, even though she hadn't gained any weight or looked any diifferent. I was like "How stupid can you be lady!" This book really gets you involed and it made me wonder how people can be anorexic, but the problem is not their eating it is caused by something else. Once you figure out that problem and get it solved it will be easier to get yourself back on track and keep you regular. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books you will ever read.
This was one of my favorite books to read in college. Not only is it in depth, but thought provoking into an area that you might not be interested in. This book takes you into a whole new world. The author is in depth and amazing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Phenominal
From my background as a biologist, this book really covers the topic with strong support and detail.From my perspective as a reader, it's a true page-turner that doesn't just accomplish its point, but goes well beyond.Sapolsky brilliantly makes incredibly complex systems seem simple and mechanistic by breaking them into manageable pieces and using strong analogies, making a prior knowledge of neuroscience unecessary.Humorous, witty, and easy-to-understand, this book is a must for anyone remotely interested in the topic of stress!

5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating tour of how stress impacts the body
This new edition of why Zebra's Don't Get Ulcers is extensively revised and exceeds earlier additions in terms of explaining the effects of stress on the body.This is a very detailed exploration, but well worth the sometimes difficult reading.If you don't have some sort of background in biology, you may find that you have to read it a bit more slowly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good AD/HD Resource
When I was first diagnosed as ADHD (emphasis on the "H"), I craved knowledge on the subject.I turned to this book and learned so much.However, true to my inattentiveness, I haven't actually FINISHED reading the book!It's one of those things that comes with so much information I can only absorb it in small doses.So I read the chapters as they become meaningful for me in my journey of coping with ADD.Eventually I'll finish the book.Especially meaningful has been the section of "Women in the Workplace".
5-0 out of 5 stars Must Read
This book will be a validating reading experience for any woman who has AD/HD, not to mention those in her family who want to understand her better.The author breaks down the symptoms, perceptions and realities of AD/HD so that the reader can get a clearer picture of what AD/HD is for women and what can be done in order to improve their lives.There are many references included in the book so continued research and reading is made easy.Do not pass this book by - you'll miss out on some VERY important information that will change your life for the better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
The answer to so many of my questions. For me, as a woman that has just been diagnosed with ADD on my 52nd birthday, this book has been a life saver. A must read for all women who suspect they may have it, think someone they know might have it or has already been diagnosed with it. This is my personal favorite out of all the books on this subject. ... Read more

This is a wonderful dermatology book! I just got it and can't put it down. Very comprehensive, clear, well-organized. Lots of pictures. Covers more material than Fitzpatrick, and much more clearly. As an internist, this book is perfect for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to reference, easy to help treat
I'm a Physician Assistant student working in a busy military hospital.This book is absolutely wonderful if you're looking for a quick diagnosis and treatment to common skin diseases.It's easy to reference, there are diagrams showing lesion distribution as well as beautiful pictures of common presentations, and an easy-to-reference treatment section.This won't cover everything, and you'll have to use a more comprehensive derm book for "zebras", but on the whole it's an excellent reference book in a general care environment. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone since 1 out of 3 people will face a diagnosis of Cancer!
This book took me through a whole range of feelings!From anger andoutrage to joy and elation. Anger because of what we, the average consumers, have allowed a once compassionate industry of healing to become because of our lack of personal responsibility! Outrage at Big Pharma and Corporate Medicine for using personal tragedies to fill their deep pockets with billions of $$$ and outrage that they can continue to "deceive the nations" with their "sorceries" on a daily basis! Joy and elation because by the end of the book, I came away feeling impowered with knowledge and information, hope and confidence that I truly can understand and overcome [should I be one of the three] this most dreaded of diseases: Cancer.
5-0 out of 5 stars Everybody - Please Read This Book!
So many books about health-related issues are full of medical jargon and difficult physiological and chemical concepts.Cancer - Step Outside the Box is amazingly clear and easy to understand.The author has done a brilliant job of breaking down "doctorese" into concepts and language that make sense to non-doctors.His description of the very complex Krebs Cycle (through which cells take in and use nourishment) should be understandable for any eighth-grader.
5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Cancer Book I've Read
Ty Bollinger taught me many things about cancer I didn't know.Coming from most people, this would be a mild compliment.Coming from me, it is somewhat more than that.You see, I have studied natural cancer treatments every day for the last eight years.I've written two books and 100 newsletters on the subject.I've given 25 workshops around the country on Beating Cancer-Gently.I "coach" about 10-12 people a week on the phone.They are people who have read one of my books.I coach them on the details of "what I would do if I were them."

5-0 out of 5 stars A New Approach, A New Attitude
I found this book inspirationally.Not because the author beat the odds in surviving a cancer considered "terminal" by all of his physicians, but because he did it by rationally setting out to explore all of his options and did not just let the "experts" tell him what to do.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read for brain tumor sufferers
Dr. Williams' book is a blow by blow record of how he guided his own survival in spite of his doctors and the constraints of the FDA in overcoming a glioblastoma.His program was well-researched and gives excellent suggestions for options in taking an active part in one's own survival.Should be read by all cancer patients, particularly those suffering with brain tumors.He also published an annual online update of the information contained in the book.

I bought this book when my dad was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) in late 2005.At first I was skeptical of his harsh criticism of the medical institution as a whole, but as my dad's surgery, chemo and radiation went on, I realized how 100% RIGHT ON Dr. Williams is in this book.You MUST buy this if you know someone suffering from this agressive form of brain cancer.Our family purchased three copies so each of us could have their own for reference.If you don't buy any other book about GBM, buy this one.Dr. Williams has survived ELEVEN years from diagnosis with a type of brain cancer that has an average survival time of 14 months. ...

Editorial Review

One in ten Americans suffers from thyroid dysfunction, yet most don't realize the mental and emotional components of this condition. "This is the first book to explain the hidden suffering that many patients have difficulty expressing and the first book to provide new ways of helping address and heal this suffering," promises author Ridha Arem, M.D., associate professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and chief of endocrinology and metabolism at Ben Taub General Hospital, both in Houston, Texas. This book explains the link between stress and thyroid imbalance; how thyroid imbalance affects your emotions, sex life, and relationships; and how to cope with the effects of this imbalance. Because thyroid problems primarily strike women, a whole section deals with women's health issues, such as infertility, miscarriage, postpartum depression, premenstrual syndrome, and menopause. Another section provides practical tools, such as evaluating lab tests and self-diagnosis techniques, dealing with treatment problems and side effects, and preventing memory lapses and depression. The book covers lifestyle choices that affect thyroid health, such as diet, supplementation, and exercise. Frequent case studies (usually told as first-person narratives), checklists, and questionnaires help to simplify the material and make it easier to check the medical information against your own situation. Each chapter ends with "valuable points to remember," making review easy. If you suffer from thyroid imbalance, or think you might, this book could be a valuable resource. Read more

This book is an eye opener. It has saved us from becoming victims of misdiagnosed thyroid disorders.I bought three books: one for myself, one for my son's doctor and one for my mother-in-law. I learn so much about why we are the way we are.Recognizing the problems is half of the battle.I just can't thank Dr. Arem enough!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Arem's Book is the Best on the Market

5-0 out of 5 stars Very comforting :alot ofthings make sense now
This book not only gives constructive direction but also removes alot of confusion. The Author has the diseases and knows first hand the situations that result. After reading this book I realize that I should purchase a few more copies for my doctor and family. The price is very low for the quality of information. After reading it I was profoundly relieved to know all the details. There are things that really don't make sense are real, and are not my imagination.

5-0 out of 5 stars Honest, Vulnerable, Thought Provoking
This healing book was also a real page-turner.I found that the author's honesty and vulnerability was refreshing.Although we all have our own stories, Ms. Roth writes about the feelings that accompany our stories and how these feelings are sometimes temporarily smothered in the warmth and comfort of food.Of course, food can't cure emotional pain...only physical hunger.Ms. Roth's book provides readers with hope that it's possible to heal old pain and put food in it's proper perspective.

4-0 out of 5 stars Truth despite the distractions
Roth is a motivational speaker of sorts and it took me a while to get past her lack of psychological or other expertise, but I eventually gave her credibility for having worked with thousands of overweight women.Another gripe I had about the book is that it has a little too much of her personal history, which persuades me that she has issues she isn't dealing with yet herself.But above all that, I found the truths of her main points about complusive eating to be paralyzing for their profundity -- we have to heal ourselves emotionally to get eating under control. Sounds obvious, but she takes the reader much deeper.I think it's on page 125 or 126 where she lists questions that each of us must be able to face and answer in order to conquer both goals.I copied the page and use it as a sort of guide in my own emtional growth.In short, I recommend the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an important book
Ok, so I thought this book was going to be ridiculously dweeby; I saw it years ago and resisted it because the title embarassed me. But I read it in less than 48 hours because it spoke to me. It's a very powerful memoir that I'm sure will resonate with a lot of people. It's so important to confront the past and not oppress ourselves in the present because we've suffered as a result of something outside ourselves. It's also an important alternative to the food nazis and didactic fitness industry types who are just hateful towards people who have real problems to deal with. Very inspiring, very empowering. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good sleeping plan
This is the best book I have read yet!And it works.
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
This is an excellent book on insomnia, causes, and treatments. It covers a lot more material then another book I've read, "Say Goodnight to Insomnia", Jacobs. However, I do have one gripe with Hauri's instructions for stimulus control therapy. He says it's ok to stay in bed and read or watch TV until you get sleepy, as long as you don't have conditioned insomnia (i.e., the bed/bedroom causes you to become anxious and awake). Jacobs recommends that you don't use the bed for anything other than sleep or sex. That means no reading in bed, or watching TV in bed in order to get to sleep.

4-0 out of 5 stars Some surprising [but effective] ideas for better sleep.
This is an excellent book that covers a broad range of reasons, and subsequent treatments, for insomnia. If read straight through, I imagine this book would be a bit cumbersome since it is so thorough. I found the technical information about sleep (in the introduction, but also scattered throughout various chapters where it applies) to be fascinating. But it is easy to skip to the parts that only concern you.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best to date on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Immune Deficiency Disease
It has been awhile since I first read this fine book, but I have not found anything else that comes even close to being as helpful. I keep going back to it for referral.

4-0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, but generally useful
I would recommend this as a reference source and buying it. It contains very useful information in many areas, such as endocrine problems and yeast etc. I have a few reservations. It only dedicates 5 lines to toxicity and detoxification, which more or less tell you to buy someone else's book. For one of the major contributary factors of Chronic Fatigue in many people, this is not really acceptable. If you are going to write a book about CFS, you can't just leave out key factors. My other reservations about the book are that it tends to mention many rather severe treatments and pharmaceutical drugs where these should only really be used as a last resort if at all, as many natural equivalents are just as effective (e.g. candida control etc). Lastly, the book doesn't clearly differentiate enough between what the reader should do by themselves, and what they should leave to a specialist to really prescribe the right treatment for them. It reads like a list of supplements. Apart from that, it is quite good. A useful overview of CFS, including toxicity, can be found at health-spy dot com.

5-0 out of 5 stars An essential book for people with CFS
I consider this to be one of the best books on CFS ever written.After several years of getting nowhere with various treatments, this book turned my illness around.I'm still not fully recovered, but I have gotten much of my life back, which is priceless. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful Advice
This book has some very helpful information about the balance one must maintain between omega 3 and omega 6 oils. I have been living with ulcerative colitis for 10 years now. It has helped me a great deal after only one month. I urge anyone with IBD to read this book on this balance or get the info. somewhere else. You will likely benefit from it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut : The Complete Nutritional Guide to Ileitis, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, and Inflammatory Bowel
This book has been very helpful. After being diganosed with Ulcerative Colitis, and having a bad time with it, getting off steroids has been difficult. I found the information here to make the most sense of any thing I've read.I've been following the advise with some modifications.(Having some lean, organic beef now and then seems to be fine... for me...eveyone is different.)I've really noticed a difference in how I feel.The idea of treating IBD by reducing inflammation is right on track.But, the book is very redundant, and can be a bit confusing at times.

5-0 out of 5 stars You need not be Dummies to benefit from this book
Finally! A book that gives a clear overview of pretty much every aspect related to autism spectrum disorder: from "classic autism" to Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism. It covers diagnosis, medical and biochemical interventions, sensory issues, learning environments, education, social skills and relationships from pre-school through adulthood. And much more! How can one book address so many topics on one book? Even I'm dumbfounded it can be done...and I guess that's the point. It's Autism for Dummies, which means it gives the briefest most concise explanation. It is written in a clear and understandable manner than ANYONE can simply pick it up, scan through it and get a good handle on what autism is. This is an excellent reference book that every school and parent should have in their library to quickly thumb through for a quick explanation. I, as a parent of three children with ASD, have purchased SEVEN copies (so far!); one for myself to use a continual quick reference book, and 6 others for the professionals who work with my kids.
5-0 out of 5 stars A very complete and helpful guide...
Over the past three years since we began to suspect my grandson was autistic, I have accumulated a large library on the subject.Many of the books covered or advocated specific types of treatment, or information on school special education, or finances and autism, or possible causes, or personal success stories or even stories of acceptance when success didn't happen.This book covers them all, and more, and does it well.I'm getting another copy for my son and daughter-in-law, although by now they are experts, not dummies.. This is a really EXCELLENT contribution to the available literature on this increasingly common developmental condition.Don't miss it! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Very psycho educational book
I find this book very useful in understanding binge eating disorder. I think its very user - reader friendly and use is very often in therapy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Anatomy of a Food Addiction
If you want to understand why your eating habits are out of control, this is the book which explains it!This book has really helped me to understand why I am so addicted to sugar and flour, and explains how one needs to abstain from these foods.I still have to rely on O.A. in order to keep the motivation to eat properly, but I come back to this book on a regular basis to keep my mind focused on why I keep returning to bad eating habits and how I am not to blame.GREAT BOOK.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lifesaving Information!
Ironically, it was a negative comment written by another reviewer that told me this was the book for me!They had mentioned the author's prescription of abstinence from sugar and white flour products to stop the carvings.You see, I know firsthand that this is a necessary and extremely effective step in combating food cravings and the binges that characterize a food addiction. (By the way this is not an "Atkins like" diet in any way, shape or form - you are still allowed heatlhy whole grains, fruits etc.)I just didn't know WHY it worked for me.For more than a year, I abstained from eating white flour products, fruits and sugars due to actual food allergies and as a wonderful side effect, all of my cravings for and obsessive thoughts about these foods ceased completely.I was no longer driven to or dependent on food.However, because I wasn't aware of why I had been so dependent on food in the past, I allowed myself to have a slice of cake on my birthday which turned out to be a huge mistake.Bam!I was right back in and I haven't been able to abstain ever since.After reading this book, I uncovered the other more important and insidious reason for my inability to regain abstinence - namely, the emotional issues that drive me to food.This aspect of the book, is the most important of all.This book feels like it was written for me.I've had every thought, every feelingDr. Katherine relates.Her writing exposes my inner life, a life I thought was mine alone but in reality most, if not all, overeaters share the same experiences!Do yourself, your body, your soul a favor and buy this book! Thank you Anne Katherine! ... Read more
