Waves by Roger Lewin
biography of a medical maverick who is challenging scientific convention
with his astounding approach to achieving and maintaining health
Dr. Irving Dardik's radical notions about how all matter moves in
interconnected waves has drawn deep skepticism from physicists,
and his early attempts to put his theory into practice in the field
of health care got him banned from practicing medicine in the 1990s.
But now, after a decade's worth of rigorous research that seems
to support Dardik's SuperWave theory, scientists at such esteemed
institutions as MIT, Harvard, and Stanford Research International
are signing on with Dardik's team to probe the possibilities. For
example, Dardik's unique approach to physical exercise, based on
his Principle, has achieved some remarkable successes in reversing
symptoms of chronic disease.
Vibrational Medicine for the 21st Century by Richard Gerber,
this ground-breaking self-help work, Dr. Gerber writes, "In
the world of vibrational medicine, illness is thought to be caused
not only by germs, chemical toxins and physical trauma but also
by chronic dysfunctional emotional-energy patterns and unhealthy
ways of relating to ourselves and other people. Rather than relying
on drugs and scalpels to treat illnesses, the vibrational approach
employs different forms of energy to bring about healing changes
in the mind, body, and spirit of the sick."

Reversing Human Aging by Michael Fossel, Ph.D, MD
telomere--the far end of a chromosome "arm" --has recently
been found to be involved with aging. Fossel describes the pertinent
investigations, then turns to picturing a world benefiting from
telomere therapy, reversal of aging, and a considerable increase
in human life span. He describes how the different body systems
age and how telomere therapy would affect each. He points out that
extended life must include having a healthy, well-maintained body
and a broad, flexible mind to be worthwhile and that a major danger
of extending life is the increasing risk of cancer, which must be
overcome. Telomere therapy will not be able to take care of all
problems: some diseases and accidents will still occur. But since
it will have only good results, he maintains, the gains will be

Along with the many benefits of leisure-class living comes obesity
and its attendant ailments. In The Warrior Diet, Ori Hofmekler looks

early cultures such as nomads and hunter-gatherers, the Greeks,
and the Romans. Based on survival science, this book proposes not
ordinary dietary changes but rather a radical yet surprisingly simple
by Ray Audette with Troy Gilchrist
At the age of thirty-three, Ray Audette was diagnosed with diabetes.
This was devastating as he'd already been suffering from rheumatoid
arthritis for more than twelve years and walked with a cane. Tired
of being sick all the time, and unhappy with what his doctors said
couldn't be cured, he decided to school himself on these disorders.
As a result of his research, he developed an interest in Paleolithic
nutrition-a natural diet based on the science of what our Stone
Age ancestors ate before the development of agrarian societies.
He then started
on this diet, and although he expected positive results, he was
astounded by the improvement he saw in just one week. His blood-sugar
levels were normal, and within a month his arthritic pain was gone,
his muscle tone had improved, and he'd lost twenty-five pounds.

by Greg Critser
In this astonishing expose, journalist Greg Critser looks beyond
the sensational headlines to reveal why nearly 60 percent of Americans
are now overweight. Critser's sharp-eyed reportage and sharp-tongued
analysis make for a disarmingly funny and truly alarming book. Critser
investigates the many factors of American life -- from supersize
to Super Mario, from high-fructose corn syrup to the high cost of
physical education in schools -- that have converged and conspired
to make us some of the fattest people on the planet. He also explains
why pediatricians are treating conditions rarely before noticed
in children, why Type 2 diabetes is on the rise, and how agribusiness
has unwittingly altered the American diet.
Mad Cowboy by Howard F. Lyman with Glen Merzer
Howard Lyman's testimony on The Oprah Winfrey Show revealed the
deadly impact of the livestock industry on our well-being. It not
only led to Oprah's declaration that she'd never eat a burger again,
it sent shock waves through a concerned and vulnerable public.
Montana rancher, Lyman investigated the use of chemicals in agriculture
after developing a spinal tumor that nearly paralyzed him. Now a
vegetarian, he blasts through the propaganda of beef and dairy interests
-- and the government agencies that protect them -- to expose an
animal-based diet as the primary cause of cancer, heart disease,
and obesity in this country. He warns that the livestock industry
is repeating the mistakes that led to Mad Cow disease in England
while simultaneously causing serious damage to the environment.
straightforward, and full of the down-home good humor and optimism
of a son of the soil, Mad Cowboy is both an inspirational story
of personal transformation and a convincing call to action for a
plant-based diet -- for the good of the planet and the health of

& Human Evolution by Craig B. Stanford and Henry T. Burns
why, and how early humans began to eat meat are three of the most
fundamental unresolved questions in the study of human origins.
Before 2.5 million years ago the presence and importance of meat
in the hominid diet is unknown. After stone tools appear in the
fossil record it seems clear that meat was eaten in increasing quantities,
but whether it was obtained through hunting or scavenging remains
a topic of intense debate. This book takes a novel and strongly
interdisciplinary approach to the role of meat in the early hominid
diet, inviting well-known researchers who study the human fossil
record, modern hunter-gatherers, and nonhuman primates to contribute
chapters to a volume that integrates these three perspectives. Stanford's
research has been on the ecology of hunting by wild chimpanzees.
Bunn is an archaeologist who has worked on both the fossil record
and modern foraging people. This will be a reconsideration of the
role of hunting, scavenging, and the uses of meat in light of recent
data and modern evolutionary theory. There is currently no other
book, nor has there ever been, that occupies the niche this book
will create for itself.
Dilemma by Michael Pollan
national bestseller that has changed the way readers view the ecology
of eating, this revolutionary book by award winner Michael Pollan
asks the seemingly simple question: What should we have for dinner?
Tracing from source to table each of the food chains that sustain
us- whether industrial or organic, alternative or processed-he develops
a portrait of the American way of eating. The result is a sweeping,
surprising exploration of the hungers that have shaped our evolution,
and of the profound implications our food choices have for the health
of our species and the future of our planet.
of Food by Michael Pollan
Michael Pollan's lastbook, The Omnivore's Dilemma, launched a national
conversation about the American way of eating; now In Defense of
Food shows us how to change it, one meal at a time. Pollan proposes
a new answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down
to seven simple but liberating words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly
plants. Pollan's bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we
can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives,
enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure
back to eating.

N.D. with Stacy Lundin Yale, R.N.
traditionally prescribe a pill for every ill. But for most people,
these single solutions don't work. The truth is, most chronic health
problems, including stubborn weight gain, unbeatable fatigue, intestinal
distress, high blood pressure, creeping cholesterol, and high blood
sugar, are not found in simply one organ, but in several parts of
the body (often times in twos and threes). This is the result of
years of slow, subtle challenges to your metabolism, which is as
unique as you are. Your lifestyle habits, stess level, prescription
drug use, and relationships, as well as the genes you inherit and
the environment in which you live-in effect, the sum total of your
life expierence up to this day-determine your personal metabolism
and, in turn, your current state of health.
Using a step-by-step,
easy-to-implement system of diet, lifestyle strategies, and state-of-the-art
nutrients and supplements, Dr. James LaValle will help you create
an indiviudalized program for reclaiming your metabolism and health.
