Mainstream medicine in America focuses on symptoms rather than causes of chronic illness and poor health. Medical education is influenced to a great extent by pharmaceutical companies and focuses our attention dangerously onto drug therapies. Conventional medicine practice has been failing miserably to control or treat the chronic disease entities afflicting our population in the modern era. Integrative medicine concepts and practice offer people much safer and often more effective options for achieving and maintaining health, as well as combating most forms of chronic disease. The keys include understanding what it really takes to promote human health in a broad sense and what the underlying causes of chronic disease truly are. Thinking Outside the Pill Box contains an explanation of how our medical system came to be so defective and ineffectual, a thorough look at the important factors influencing human health, and an in-depth discussion of many common underlying causes of chronic illness in the modern world. It is designed as a self-help book for both the reader and their future generations.

The definitive guide to heart health from two of America's most respected doctors at Cleveland Clinic, the #1 hospital for heart health in America. Are you one of the eighty-two million Americans currently diagnosed with cardiovascular disease—or one of the millions more who think they are healthy but are at risk? Whether your goal is to get the best treatment or stay out of the cardiologist’s office, your heart's health depends upon accurate information and correct answers to key questions. In Heart 411, two renowned experts, heart surgeon Marc Gillinov and cardiologist Steven Nissen, tackle the questions their patients have raised over their decades of practice: Can the stress of my job really lead to a heart attack? How does exercise help my heart, and what is the right amount and type of exercise? What are the most important tests for my heart, and when do I need them? How do symptoms and treatments differ among men, women, and children? Backed by decades of clinical experience and up-to-the-minute research, yet written in the accessible, down-to-earth tone of your trusted family doctor, Heart 411 cuts through the confusion to give you the knowledge and tools you need to live a long and heart-healthy life.

Cardiovascular drugs have dramatically changed the way we treat heart disease in the last decade--allowing us to effectively combat hypertension, lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart attacks, and, in some cases, even reverse heart disease. Yet, if you are on of the more than 30,000,000 Americans who take heart drugs, chances are you are not getting all the information you need to take these medications safely and effectively. Dr. Martin Goldman has written the first book that deals with all the issues surrounding the use of these life-preserving drugs--how they work on the body's systems and how life-style, diet, and exercise enhance or impede their effectiveness. In clear and accessible prose, using examples from his own practice, Dr. Goldman also presents guidelines for choosing and communicating with your cardiologist, examines the value of new screening tests and procedures, and even shows patients how to keep a cardiovascular diary to monitor their own heart care. The second half of the book provides comprehensive profiles of more than ninety commonly used heart drugs--among them beta blockers, anticoagulants, and antihypertensives--examining their possible side effects; their interactions with food, alcohol, and other drugs' and life-style alterations to consider while using them. This is an indispensable guidebook for anyone concerned about complete cardiac care.
