Packed with accessible information about cholesterol and advice to help you identify if you have raised cholesterol levels, the book includes a clinically proven three-month programme to help you wash cholesterol out of your system and improve your cholesterol balance.

With Dr. Brill’s breakthrough Cholesterol Down Plan, you simply add nine “miracle foods” to your regular diet and thirty minutes of walking to your daily routine. That’s all.

Endlich dürfen wir wieder fett essen – und nehmen dabei sogar ab! Lange wurde uns erzählt, dass Fett dick macht, Herz-Kreislauf-Krankheiten hervorruft und unserer Gesundheit schadet. Doch die wissenschaftliche Studienlage zeigt inzwischen sehr deutlich, dass genau das Gegenteil der Fall ist: Eine Ernährung, die reich ist an hochwertigen Fettsäuren, wie sie zum Beispiel in Fisch, Eiern, Nüssen, Olivenöl oder Avocado enthalten sind, bringt enorme gesundheitliche Vorteile und hilft sogar beim Abnehmen. In seinem neuen Buch präsentiert der Arzt und neunfache New York Times-Bestsellerautor Mark Hyman ein innovatives Konzept, um abzunehmen und langfristig gesund zu bleiben. Iss Fett, werde schlank basiert auf aktuellen Forschungsergebnissen und erklärt, wie man sich ernähren muss, um optimale Gesundheit zu erlangen und überflüssige Pfunde loszuwerden. Auf Genuss muss man trotzdem nicht verzichten, denn wie wir wissen, schmeckt mit einer Portion Fett alles gleich viel besser. Mit vielen praktischen Tipps, Menüplänen, Rezepten und Einkaufslisten weist dieser umfassende Abnehmratgeber den Weg in ein schlankeres, gesünderes Leben mit mehr Lebensfreude, Energie und Wohlbefinden.

Der Klassiker der Gesundheitsliteratur komplett aktualisiert und überarbeitet! Christiane Northrup ist in den USA die Koryphäe auf dem Gebiet der Frauenheilkunde. Sie beschreibt offen, klar und einfühlsam die Veränderungen, die Frauen zwischen 40 und 55 erwarten. Dabei räumt sie gründlich auf mit der gängigen Vorstellung, dass sich hinter dem Begriff „Wechseljahre“ einfach eine Ansammlung körperlicher Probleme verbirgt, die – am besten mit Hormonen! – behandelt werden müssen. Die Wechseljahre sind vielmehr ein körperlicher und geistiger Umwälzungsprozess, der Frauen eine echte Chance zum Wachstum bietet – wenn es ihnen gelingt, auf ihre innere Stimme zu hören. Northrup deckt den Zusammenhang zwischen den Wechseljahren und dem emotionalen Leben einer Frau auf und beschreibt unter anderem, wie die Wechseljahre zu einer Verschiebung der weiblichen Prioritäten führen, wie Frauen klimakterische Beschwerden als Weckrufe ihres Körpers erkennen können, wie sich hormonelle Veränderungen auf die Sexualität auswirken, wie Frauen mit den Veränderungen ihres Äußeren umgehen oder sich vor Herzerkrankungen, Alzheimer und Krebs schützen können. Northrup ermutigt Frauen, die Botschaften ihres Körpers zu verstehen, die Wechseljahre als eine Zeit der positiven Energie zu begreifen und die wunderbare Kraft dieser Lebensphase für ihre persönliche Entwicklung zu nutzen. In der Neuauflage des Bestsellers hat Northrup die neuesten Studien und Fallbeispiele zusammengetragen und berichtet mit ihrer reichen Erfahrung aus ihrer Praxis.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing our diets. Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects. Furthermore, it can eliminate the need for expensive and invasive surgical interventions, such as bypass and stents, no matter how far the disease has progressed. Dr. Esselstyn began his research with a group of patients who joined his study after traditional medical procedures to treat their advanced heart disease had failed. Within months of following a plant-based, oil-free diet, their angina symptoms eased, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly, and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later, the majority of Dr. Esselstyn's patients continue to follow his program and remain heart-attack proof. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind these dramatic results, and offers readers the same simple, nutrition-based plan that has changed the lives of his patients forever. In addition, Dr. Esselstyn provides more than 150 delicious recipes that he and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have enjoyed for years and used with their patients. Clearly written and backed by irrefutable scientific evidence, startling photos of angiograms, and inspiring personal stories, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease will empower readers to take charge of their heart health. It is a powerful call for a paradigm shift in heart-disease therapy.

Diese Ernährung geht zu Herzen! "Herzerkrankungen sind vermeidbar. Und wer bereits darunter leidet, kann ihr Fortschreiten stoppen und die heimtückischen Folgen rückgängig machen. Der Schlüssel zum Erfolg liegt in der Ernährung." Caldwell B. Esselstyn war Olympiasieger im Achter, erfolgreicher Chirurg und anerkannter Präventivmediziner - vor allem aber ist er ein Pionier. Sein revolutionäres Herz-Ernährungsprogramm - rein pflanzlich, ohne Fette, vegan - hat seine Wirksamkeit in über zwei Jahrzehnten und vielen Studien bewiesen. Die Teilnehmer seiner ersten Studie sind auch heute - 20 Jahre später! - trotz schlechter Prognosen immer noch frei von Beschwerden. Esselstyns Botschaft ist dabei so einfach wie radikal: Wer anders isst, erkrankt erst gar nicht am Herzen. Und wer seine Ernährung nach einem Herzinfarkt umstellt, hat beste Chancen, ohne Medikamente und ohne Operation ein gutes, gesundes Leben zu führen. Probieren Sie es aus - und gewinnen Sie so Lebensqualität und Wohlbefinden zurück.

Many of the greatest strides in medical care have neither been glamorous nor made the front page of The New York Times. They have been simple measures such as sanitation, immunization, and provision of clean, whole some food. And even more glamorous medical breakthroughs and tech niques like heart transplants are often last-ditch responses to largely preventable medical problems that required a lifetime to develop. Chang ing those life styles which may cause, worsen, or exacerbate disease and uti lizing current medical knowledge may be the most important strides medicine will make in the next few decades. To meet this challenge, tech niques have already been developed to change eating and nutritional pat terns that may lead to obesity and heart disease. In addition, interventions are being developed for a wide variety of medical problems. Many of these techniques are based on behavioral principles. Several years ago, one of the editors of this book gave a behavioral medi cine seminar for psychiatry residents concerning behavioral principles and their application to medicine. As the seminar developed, it became evident that many of the important articles on the subject were scattered through out a wide body of literature, which encompassed a variety of disciplines and journals. No single source was available to provide the state of the art of this emerging field. This book was spawned, in part, as an attempt to overcome this deficit.

More and more often doctors are telling their patients their bad cholesterol levels are unacceptably high. Jordan Rubin, with Joseph Brasco, MD, believes people should regard that information as they view a red "Engine Warning" light on the dashboard of their cars. Signs of high cholesterol are a warning light for serious future health problems: gallstones, high blood pressure, impotence, heart disease, and stroke. In The Great Physician's Rx for High Cholesterol, Rubin and Brasco show how to take hold of the Seven Keys for Health and Wellness to prevent and even reverse high cholesterol. Yes, following these Seven Keys does involve lifestyle changes, but for people who are "eating like a pig, drinking like a fish, and smoking like a chimney"$mdash;their health is seriously at risk, and they will benefit from the strategies in this book.
