The Hormone Reset Diet with Dr. Sara Gottfried

Most people don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones—cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen—your body adjusts by ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. Hormone imbalances can lead to insatiable hunger, stress eating, sugar cravings, food addictions and stubborn fat, among other things., The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors.

Vitamania: Our Obsessive Quest for Nutritional Perfection by Catherine Price

Most of us know nothing about vitamins. What's more, what we think we know is harming both our personal nutrition and our national health. By focusing on vitamins at the expense of everything else, we've become blind to the bigger picture: despite our belief that vitamins are an absolute good--and the more of them, the better--vitamins are actually small and surprisingly mysterious pieces of a much larger nutritional puzzle. In Vitamania, award-winning journalist Catherine Price offers a lucid and lively journey through our cherished yet misguided beliefs about vitamins, and reveals a straightforward, blessedly anxiety-free path to enjoyable eating and good health.

Watch Your Back! by Dr. Richard Deyo

Over the past twenty years, treatment of back pain has become ever more expensive and intensive. Use of MRI scans, narcotic painkillers, injections, and invasive spine surgery have all grown by several hundred percent, yet annual surveys of people with back pain report steadily worse impairments.  Though it may seem counterintuitive, fewer medical interventions may produce better results with back pain. Expecting a probe, a pill, or a procedure to cure is usually unrealistic, yet entire industries promote the notion that someone else will "fix" you. Watch Your Back! exposes these flaws in the current approach to back pain, along with the profit motives and conflicts of interest behind many of them. Richard A.

Joseph Keon, author of "Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth Behind Cow's Milk And Your Health"

 Hosted by Dr. David Naimon.

Today's guest is Joseph Keon, the author of "Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth Behind Cow's Milk And Your Health."

John Robbins, the author of Diet For A New America, says this about Whitewash in the foreword:

"I might be one of the last people you would expect to find questioning the value of dairy products for human health. Not that this is an easy question for most people. The assumption that dairy products are wonderful foods prevails throughout our culture with amazing tenacity. But in my family of origin, this assumption was held with a steadfastness that was virtually religious.
There was a reason. My father founded, owned and ran what became the world’s largest ice cream company --- Baskin-Robbins. Our house included a commercial-sized freezer with each of the 31 flavors, one for each day of the month. By the time I was 21, my father had manufactured and sold more ice cream than any human being who had ever lived on the planet. And he groomed me, his only son, to succeed him. It was his plan that I would follow in his footsteps.


So what am I doing writing a foreword for a book titled Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth About Cow’s Milk And Your Health? It turned out that I didn’t follow my father’s plan, but instead walked away from the company and the money it represented to become an advocate for a healthy and compassionate way of life. And that brings me to this marvelous book by Joseph Keon. Because if you are looking for the truth about dairy products and your health, if you are wanting to understand what scientific research has actually shown, this book is an immensely helpful resource. I consider it, in fact, the best book yet written on the subject."
