Genre: Health & Fitness

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.

Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus E Book

Author: Steven Levene
Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
ISBN: 9780702049972
Release Date: 2011-11-29
Genre: Medical

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. In the 21st Century, the management of type 2 diabetes has become even more important both in the primary health care setting and in the UK government's health policy. With the publication of the National Service Framework and the allied National Clinical Guidelines, both patients and the government expect practices to deliver appropriate and effective care to a high standard. This handbook addresses many concepts important in the day-to-day management of these patients. In addition to the discussion of specific medical management of type 2 diabetes (including the improvement of cardiovascular risk factors), the book explores the use of self-management techniques, the consultation process, and the use of psychological techniques to influence health-related behavior. All aspects of the text are linked, when appropriate, to the GMS contract. The authors include a full time GP delivering diabetic care and an eminent Consultant/academic at the leading edge of diabetes research The text is completely up-to-date with numerous current references, incorporating the latest guidance The span of the text is comprehensive, including clinical, organisational and psycho-social topics of importance in delivering high-quality diabetes care The text is cross-referenced to the relevant QOF indicators and NSF standards This book also covers the relevant aspects of diabetes in Curriculum Statement 15.6 prepared by the Royal College of General Practitioners, which forms the basis of the new membership examination and the competencies expected of General Practitioners. The management options include extensive balanced discussions about not just drugs, but also health education and appropriate referrals to specialists The approach is neither didactic nor promotional, and aims to provide sufficient practical information to help clinicians make optimal decisions that take full account of the latest authoritative guidance, but which can be tailored rationally to the individual patient's needs Many of the concepts covered - including reduction of cardiovascular risk, health education, audit and lifestyle - are extremely relevant to non-diabetes care The appendices include a detailed drug formulary and the relevant 2006-2008 QOF clinical indicators. Future trends and further reading are clearly set out, ensuring that the book will remain useful for the next few years.
