***WINNER, 2009 Living Now Book Award, Gold Metal In this breakthrough book, Dr. James Forleo proposes a return to the body as the site of self-healing. The problem, he says, is that we don’t understand the language of signs and symptoms it uses to communicate its healing messages. Health Is Simple helps readers decipher that language and access the great realms of health and vitality the body contains. Written in a clear, engaging style, the book takes a systems approach to health, walking readers through the basic design and function of each major organ system—the nerve, endocrine, immune, musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and elimination systems—and offers a set of simple practices to boost their performance. With only a few minutes a day, readers can radically improve their health and well-being. Based on his work with hundreds of patients, the program emphasizes simple correctives to diet and lifestyle, a new perspective on digestion and elimination, and the alignment of the spine and structural system. Case studies demonstrate successfully resolved conditions from chronic headaches, anxiety, and respiratory disorders to exhaustion, autoimmune disorders, and allergies. Health Is Simple offers readers access to the same customized program the author’s celebrity clients have enjoyed, with the possibility of achieving the same spectacular results.

Healthcare is very much dependent on the model of the patient that is assumed by healthcare providers. The current model derives from a chemical/mechanical view of the patient body. Simply put: we are healthy if all of our mechanical parts are working properly and if all of the chemicals in our body are in the right proportions and have the appropriate reactions. This view is based on philosophical accounts of the body that go back to Paracelsus, Descartes, Boyle and others. It became the central basis of medical practice only in the late 19th Century after several hundred years of research and professional politics. The Mechanical Patient traces the intellectual development of the chemical/mechanical model of the patient and its implementation. This book names the problem that we have with the mechanical patient and prepares us to respond to its exaggerated place in our society. It provides a historical and conceptual background and explains how the chemical/mechanical model of health gained such a strong hold over our thinking and took the place of the earlier Galenic humoral model. It sketches a promising outline of a more humanized model for understanding health and calls for help to fully articulate it. In that way, it joins a growing movement to go beyond our current chemical/mechanical orientation.

Education is the heart of a successful nation. A learning nation is a successful nation. The nation that fails to educate its citizens faces numerous challenges such as social problems, financial problems, and rebellion. But for the success of education there should be enough and good teachers to teach students. In many countries, the number of good teachers is diminishing as the teaching career is becoming less attractive to a number of students because of the problems that are associated to teaching. It is imperative for the governments to come up with measures to increase the number of teachers in schools. It is unchallenged that teachers are one of the vital elements of education system. Therefore they need to be motivated and retained. Furthermore, the education system can be effective if the students are prepared to learn. It is very difficult for the teachers to impart knowledge to students that have barriers of education such as poor behavior. Therefore, parents have an important role to play to ensure that students come to school prepared to learn and without any barriers to education. It is the responsibility of the government and organizations to retain and motivate teachers. Systems of education will be successful if they are supported by the government, organizations, communities, parents, learners, and teachers. There should be good structures in the education system to produce more teachers who will be responsible in educating the nation. The death of a good system of education would drive the nation back to a time of ignorance where uneducated people will become leaders of nations.

The unique feature of the book is to highlight the root cause of disease. Advancement of civilization practically kept us away from natureour modern lifestyle, incorrect dietary habits, and environmental pollution account for the causes of diseases and health problems. It is not practical to go back to the old civilization and avoid pollution. It is not fruitful to advice aged people to do exercise or busy people to live in a pollution-free environment. A simple and easy method is therefore suggested for preventing disease: to take sufficient chlorophyll and color pigments (bioflavonoid), which are available and plenty in nature in fruits, vegetables, green leaves, and nontoxic colored flowers. The role of detoxification, intake of dietary fiber, and five basic cares are the other important aspects to increase the longevity. The author also highlights an alternative but easy method of treatment of disease and maintenance of health by introducing home medicine for family treatment. Under this system, the number of medicines is only few (about ten), hence there is no confusion of application of medicine. Thus the book provides us basic information on the causes of disease and how to keep away disease from life. Hope many people will be benefited by keeping this book.

This visionary reframing of health and healthcare uses a complexity science approach to building healthcare systems that are accessible, effective, and prepared for change and challenges. Its holistic map for understanding the human organism emphasizes the interconnectedness of the individual’s physical, psychological, cognitive, and sociocultural functioning. Applications of this approach are described in primary, specialist, and emergency care and at the organizational and policy levels, from translating findings to practice, to problem solving and evaluation. In this model, the differences between disease and illness and treating illness and restoring health are not mere wordplay, but instead are robust concepts reflecting real-world issues and their solutions. Based on the Proceedings of the 1st International Conference of Systems and Complexity for Healthcare, topics covered include: • Coping with complexity and uncertainty: insights from studying epidemiology in family medicine • Anticipation in complex systems: potential implications for improving safety and quality in healthcare • Monitoring variability and complexity at the bedside • Viewing mental health through the lens of complexity science • Ethical complexities in systems healthcare: what care and for whom? • The value of systems and complexity thinking to enable change in adaptive healthcare organizations supported by informatics • If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the theory: implications for health system reform The Value of Systems and Complexity Sciences for Healthcare will interest and inspire health and disease researchers, health professionals, health care planners, health system financiers, health system administrators, health services administrators, health professional educators, and, last but not least, current and future patients.

In 1941 the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of diethylstilbestrol (DES), the first synthetic chemical to be marketed as an estrogen and one of the first to be identified as a hormone disruptor—a chemical that mimics hormones. Although researchers knew that DES caused cancer and disrupted sexual development, doctors prescribed it for millions of women, initially for menopause and then for miscarriage, while farmers gave cattle the hormone to promote rapid weight gain. Its residues, and those of other chemicals, in the American food supply are changing the internal ecosystems of human, livestock, and wildlife bodies in increasingly troubling ways. In this gripping exploration, Nancy Langston shows how these chemicals have penetrated into every aspect of our bodies and ecosystems, yet the U.S. government has largely failed to regulate them and has skillfully manipulated scientific uncertainty to delay regulation. Personally affected by endocrine disruptors, Langston argues that the FDA needs to institute proper regulation of these commonly produced synthetic chemicals.
