Lore Of Nutrition - Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs (Paperback): Tim Noakes, Marika Sboros Lore Of Nutrition - Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs (Paperback)

What would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …?

In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition ‘wisdom’. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017.

In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the LCHF/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel.

Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eye-opener for anyone who cares about their health.

R271 R204 Discovery Miles 2 040 Save R67 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Across the world, 2 billion people experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule. In It's Only Blood Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.

Culture and its impact on health assessment and interventions is widely recognised as an essential aspect of medical training.

The authors of Cultural issues in health and health care deal with the basic principles of transcultural care and focus on training practitioners to be able to put the principles into practice in their own health settings.

R256 R144 Discovery Miles 1 440 Save R112 (44%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's The Spirit Level, now published in more than twenty languages, has been one of the most influential non-fiction books published in the last decade, showing conclusively how less equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across a whole range of social measures - health, education, levels of violence, life expectancy and child wellbeing - and initiating the enormous public attention now given to the impacts of inequality. Based on an equally impressive range of data and analysis, The Inner Level now shows the impact inequality has on individuals: how it affects us psychologically, makes social relations more stressful, undermines self-confidence and distorts natural differences in personal abilities. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of wellbeing than those based on excessive individualism, competitiveness and social aggression. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level will transform ideas of how we should organise the way we live together.

Curricula in nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, human nutrition and medicine have to include modules on integrative healthcare in the pre-registration programmes (degree and diploma programmes) in order to educate prospective health professionals with regard to the basic principles of integrative healing (complementary and alternative practices).

Modules on alternative healing should be included in pre-registration curricula in order to educate health professionals with regard to the basic principles of traditional healing, herbalism, reflexology and aromatherapy. This is especially so because the integration of alternative allied health professions into the healthcare team is encouraged by healthcare providers.

No other textbook on integrative healthcare that includes the principles of traditional healing is currently available to be used in the training of nurses, doctors and allied health professionals at universities and colleges.

Key Features:

  • Integrative healthcare curriculum available to prescribing institutions
  • Provides prospective health professionals with the basic principles of integrative healing (complementary and alternative practices).
  • No textbook with a South African perspective on this topic is available at present.
  • Includes information on a range of complementary and alternative practices i.e. aromatherapy and chiro practice.
  • Incorporates legislation. Can be used as a reference text.
  • In line with curriculum requirements.

Short, doable fasts, when strategically timed, are an incredibly powerful metabolic intervention, dovetailing perfectly with a ketogenic diet to activate your body's fat-burning mode.

Topics include: - How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it - The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation - How the cyclical ketogenic diet - with fasting included - differs from the conventional keto diet - How fasting works and how safe it is for you - How regular one-day fasts support fat burning and detoxification while minimizing hunger and side effects - How to monitor your progress with lab tests - And much more "This will be an exciting journey for you," Dr. Mercola writes. "I am beyond excited for you to implement what I consider to be one of the most powerful physical strategies to help you not only recover your health, but also improve it to levels you likely never believed were possible."

Veteran journalist and writer Daryl Ilbury unveils, layer by layer, a combustible mix of scientific ignorance, academic jealousy, the collapse of media ethics, and the interests of a world-renowned scientist in highlighting the intricacies of human nutrition and exposing those he believes have vested interests in regulating it.

Featuring interviews with people who have worked closely with Noakes, including former Springbok coach Jake White and polar swimmer Lewis Gordon Pugh, as well as award-winning journalists and fellow scientists and academics, some of whom now consider Noakes dangerous and out of control, this book is bound to be as controversial as the man himself.

Is your diet feeding or defeating disease? We are at a turning point in our understanding of how to prevent and fight disease. Rates of cancer, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity and other common health problems are skyrocketing. However, the latest scientific research and clinical evidence is revealing that the power to protect ourselves against these threats and resist them lies in a simple solution: the foods we eat everyday. In Eat to Beat Disease, Dr William Li explains that your body was designed to fight threats like these and we have radically underestimated how food can be used to amplify this hidden power. Your body has five natural defence systems that, if functioning well, can protect you: angiogenesis (growing new blood vessels), cell regeneration, the microbiome, DNA protection and immunity. The healthy working of each has been found to be intimately connected to the foods we eat - and the findings are sometimes surprising. Discover: * Why scientists think drinking hot cocoa boosts stem cells crucial for your body's regeneration * The role of cheese and wine in maintaining healthy gut bacteria * Why drinking coffee lowers your risk of dying Revealing more than 200 foods that you can incorporate into your life today to help you live longer, Dr William Li proposes a simple 5 x 5 x 5 framework, inviting you to choose five foods and eat them five times a day, to fortify your five defence systems. It is not about dieting or cutting out - it is about having the confidence to incorporate the healthy foods you already love into a plan for life-long change. It could save your life.
