ISBN: 0743236068
Fireside May 4, 2004 8vo softcover 288pp very good. A road map for understanding and managing children's stomach problems -- from symptoms to treatment, and everything in between From baby's colic to an older child's complaint of "my tummy hurts," abdominal distress is painful for kids and worrisome to parents, ranking second only to upper respiratory tract infections as the most common reason for non-routine visits to the pediatrician. In many cases, the discomfort is easily remedied and even prevented -- but some kinds of pain indicate a more serious affliction. How can parents make the distinction? Drawing from more than two decades of experience as a pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Joseph Levy offers a prescriptive guide to children's digestive complaints. My Tummy Hurts equips parents with the information they need to help alleviate their children's pain and prevent many disorders from occurring. They'll discover how to ask the right questions, identify problems, recognize the symptoms requiring urgent medical attention, and much more, including: How the digestive system works and why it sometimes malfunctions The major causes of stomachaches Identifying disease triggers, including those related to stress and diet What to do if your child is lactose- or wheat-intolerant My Tummy Hurts, organized for easy reference, is an indispensable handbook for parents and caregivers.

Never Be Tired Again!
Gardner, David C.
Book Number: 35703
ISBN: 006097298X
New York Perennial 1990 8vo softcover 370pp index. very good. From Publishers Weekly: Billed as "the seven-day high-energy program millionaires have paid thousands for," this book was developed by two California psychologists. But the so-called seven days are merely a prelude: the program, in fact, is lifelong, and here begin the book's many contradictions. Gardner and Beatty write gliblyfor intelligent, highly motivated readers. They stress the power of mind over body, yet their regimen emphasizes physical fitness. Their stated goal is high energy, but in practice this is merely one benefit of adherence to the latest scientific wisdoms they tout in low-fat, low-sugar nutrition, stress management and aerobic exercise. Diet and exercise recommendations are sound; mental exercises read like pop psychology. Informative nutritional and exercise tables, appealing recipes and an extensive bibliography contrast with gimmicky self-quizzes and worthless "checklists." As a resource, the book contains much that's valuable; as a program, it will be hard for most readers to swallow. nCopyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Plume 1999 8vo. Softcover. 202pp. very good. In this ground-breaking book, he describes his pioneering work--combining cutting-edge Western medicine with such Eastern techniques as acupuncture and chi-gong, as well as such controversial therapies as hypnosis, music, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, and energy healing. The inspiring and affecting stories of his patients are the heart of this book--from the extraordinary discipline of Frank Torre, who used his professional sports training to "psych" himself into healing after heart transplant surgery, to the "impossible" recovery of blues great Johnny Copeland, who was roused from a seemingly impenetrable coma through the force of his own music. In recounting his patients' experiences, Dr. Oz forges a blueprint for the radical new medicine of the next millennium--drawing on the best from Eastern and Western therapies and empowering patients to become partners with doctors in promoting their own recovery.
