Take Control Of Your Symptoms--Naturally!

More than a million Americans suffer the pain, fevers, and bleeding of Crohn's disease, colitis, and other incurable inflammatory bowel disorders (IBDs), whose numbers are rising every year. While most patients are treated with harsh prescription drugs or invasive surgery, these merely mask or postpone the symptoms.

All her life, author Virginia Harper had suffered from the debilitating effects of Crohn's disease. Even with heavy medication her symptoms persisted, and so she turned to a natural treatment regimen consisting of simple changes in diet and lifestyle. The results were truly remarkable. Within a year, she was not only pain-free, but symptom-free. Some twenty years later, Virginia's diarrhea, painful indigestion, cramps and bleeding have never returned. 

In this important book, she shares her life-changing experiences with you. You'll learn about the eating program that has worked for her: which foods to consume, their preparation, and how to combine them in the most effective ways. You'll also receive her advice on easy activities to help restore your energy. Plus she discusses the latest drugs and surgical procedures, including their side effects, and tells you how to work with your doctor to become a more effective partner in your IBD treatment.

With Controlling IBD, you can begin your own journey to reclaiming health and vitality. So let the healing begin!

Finally—the ultimate diet for fast, safe weight loss, lifelong health, and longer life, based on more than twenty years of research and the latest findings on appetite and weight. Metabolic specialist Ron Rosedale, M.D., has designed the Rosedale Diet to regulate the powerful hormone leptin, which controls appetite and weight loss by telling the brain when to eat, how much to eat—and when to stop. New research shows that leptin may be one of the body's most important hunger control mechanisms. Control leptin, and you control your weight.

Most people's leptin levels are out of control, causing them to overeat and to store fat rather than burn it. The only way to flip the "hunger switch" back to normal is through a diet high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, saturated fat, and trans-fatty acids often found in processed food—plus just 15 minutes of daily exercise.

Dr. Rosedale's 21-day diet plan is simple: Just select from the many foods on his "A" list, including "healthy-fat" foods such as avocados, nuts, olives, lobster, crab, shrimp, goat cheese, Cornish game hen, venison, and more. Then gradually add foods from the "B" list, such as steak, lamb chops, fruits, beans, and so on. A 28-day menu plan and more than 100 recipes, such as Dilled Salmon and Fresh Asparagus, Gingery Chicken Soup, Lasagna, Black Bean Wrap, Raspberry Mousse Cake, and French Silk Pie, make eating the Rosedale way deliciously easy.

Weight loss is just the beginning. The Rosedale Diet will make you feel satisfied, reduce cravings, and put you in control of your "sweet tooth." It can even help eliminate or reduce heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other conditions associated with "natural" aging, as many of Dr. Rosedale's patients can attest. You'll find inspiring stories from them—and the power to control your weight and improve your health—in this groundbreaking book.

This anthology examines the unexplored consequences of globalization on the lives of women worldwide. In a world shaped by mass migration and economic exchange on an ever-increasing scale, women are moving around the globe as never before. Every year, millions leave Mexico, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Eastern Europe to work in the homes, nurseries and brothels of the First World - from Vietnamese mail-order brides to Mexican nannies in LA, from Thai girls in Vietnamese brothels to Czech au pairs in the UK. In the new global calculus, the female energy that flows to wealthy countries to ease a care deficit, is subtracted from poor ones, often to the detriment of the families left behind. Is the main resource now extracted from the Third World no longer gold or silver, but love?
