Lymphedema & Lipedema Nutrition Guide
Lymphedema & Lipedema Nutrition Guide
Eat to starve lymphedema and lipedema by having foods that fight these conditions (and cancer) and avoiding foods that contribute to symptoms or related conditions. Learn how food choices affect both conditions and how better nutrition can improve symptoms (including pain) and delay changes associated with progression to more advanced stages. Intended for anyone with, or at risk for, lymphedema or lipedema, caregivers, lymphedema therapists, and other health care providers. Signs of lymphedema and lipedema (painful fat syndrome) include swelling (edema), abnormal fat accumulation, pain, skin changes, and infections (cellulitis, wounds or ulcers) in affected areas. Lymphedema and lipedema are progressive conditions that can be depressing, disfiguring, disabling, and (potentially) deadly, without treatment. This guide explains why nutrition is an essential part of treatment and self-care for these conditions, what to eat, and how to change your eating pattern. It also covers vitamins, minerals, and supplements that may be beneficial. You may be at risk for lymphedema if you have chronic venous insufficiency, other venous disorders, heart disease, obesity, a cancer diagnosis (especially breast cancer, reproductive system cancers, or melanoma), or a family history of lymphedema or swollen legs. Eating wisely and maintaining a healthy body weight can help reduce your risk of developing lymphedema symptoms. This guide includes all the information you need for changing your eating pattern including ways to increase your motivation and build support for changing your eating pattern, meal plans and recipes for recommended foods, a shopping guide, cooking tips, suggestions for eating away from home, and much more. It also includes detailed information on lymphedema and lipedema including risk factors, signs and symptoms, treatment, other health care considerations and more than 40 photos showing different stages of each condition. The authors include experts in lymphedema and lipedema treatment, nutrition research, and behavior change. Recommendations are based on the latest medical research combined with the clinical experience of the authors. In addition to sharing their clinical experience, Emily Iker and Linda-Anne Kahn share their personal insights from living well with lymphedema and lipedema, respectively. Chuck Ehrlich is a medical researcher and writer for LymphNotes.com, as well as a lymphedema caregiver. Emily Iker, MD, specializes in treating lymphedema and lipedema at the Lymphedema Center in Santa Monica and has lower-extremity lymphedema.

Medical MediumThyroid Healing
Medical MediumThyroid Healing
The thyroid is the new hot topic in health. Across age groups, from baby boomers and their parents to millennials and even children, more and more people-women especially-are hearing that their thyroids are to blame for their fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety,
depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs, and more. Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.
As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven't gone away-people aren't healing. Labeling someone with "Hashimoto's," "hypothyroidism," or the like doesn't explain the myriad health issues that person may experience. That's because there's a pivotal truth that goes by unnoticed: A thyroid problem is not the ultimate reason for a person's illness. A problematic thyroid is yet one more symptom of something much larger than this one small gland in the neck. It's something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that's responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.
In Medical Medium Thyroid Healing, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what's going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality. It's an approach unlike any other, and as his millions of fans and followers will tell you, it's the approach that gets results.

Migraine Brain Your Breakthrough Guide
Migraine Brain Your Breakthrough Guide
A migraine isn't just a headache; it is a neurological disease. Affecting one in five women, one in twenty men, and one in twenty children, it's a debilitating, complex, and chronic condition that manifests in a combination of symptoms that can include excruciating head pain as well as other distinctive physical and emotional effects. Yet it's also a disease that you can get control of, improve, and manage, as Dr. Carolyn Bernstein has discovered in her 17 years as a practising neurologist.

Dr. Bernstein explains why migraines happen, why they are misdiagnosed, and why so few people get the right treatment for them. She reveals the latest research that shows that Migraine Brains share a hypersensitivity to stimuli - the Migraine Brain can look different from others on scan - and is more likely to experience a cascade of neurological reactions that cause common migraine symptoms. This breakthrough medical knowledge makes treatment and recovery possible with new migraine-specific drugs as well as with complementary treatments such as yoga, biofeedback, and an exercise regimen.

The Migraine Brain will equip you with the information you need to understand migraines and to help your family and co-workers understand that a migraine isn't just a headache: it's a serious, yet treatable condition.

Our Hormones Our Health
Our Hormones Our Health
A handbook for women who want to understand their hormones and transform their lives for the better.

Hormones affect our health throughout our lives. So why do we so often assume they are mainly 'a menopause thing', and leave it until hot flushes arrive to start taking them seriously? The truth is that before the age of 50, many women find that their hormone-related symptoms just aren't acknowledged, despite the impact they can have on almost every aspect of their lives, years before menopause hits.

Hormone imbalances can cause joint pain, weight gain, migraines, acne, sleepless nights, loss of libido, and much more. Medical science has come a long way in recent years, though, and there are wonderful treatment options available, including HRT, diet, and exercise. So why don't more women know about them? Why are they still being told that they simply have to put up with these conditions?

Written by two doctors from their experience as practitioners and as women, and full of pioneering knowledge from epigenetics, stress medicine, nutritional medicine, and modern hormone replacement therapy, Our Hormones, Our Health aims to show women how to live with good health, good humour, and much happiness - no matter what their stage of life.
