"As a doctor the number one question I get from patients when they are faced with a scary choice in medicine today, 'Doc, what would you do?' This is the story of what happened when my 71 year old mother was dying of cancer. Tim Ferriss saved her life. This story will save yours," Annette Bosworth, MD.<br />In ANYWAY YOU CAN, Dr Bosworth shares her ‘accidental’ discovery of ketosis and its wide array of health benefits as she supplemented her mom’s chemotherapy with ketones. Her story of courage, faith, and tenacity helps young and old achieve better physical, mental, and emotional health through ketosis. Dr Bosworth inspires patients to become stewards of their own health through her leadership skills, public speaking and “sticky teachable moments.” When patients ask how to turn around their chronic health problem, she answers “Fight it ANYWAY YOU CAN. Ketones for Life.”<br />

Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.</p><br /><p>Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.</p><br /><p> </p><br /><p>Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code.

<b>Chances are, you or someone you know is affected by a tongue-tie. </b><br /> Common, yet little understood, tongue-ties can lead to a myriad of problems, including difficulty when nursing, speaking or eating. In the most crucial and formative parts of children’s lives, tongue-ties have a significant effect on their well-being. Many parents and professionals alike want to know what can be done, and how best to treat these patients and families.<br /> <b> And now, there are answers. </b><br /><br /> <i>Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Feeding, Speech, and More</i> is an exhaustive and informative guide to this misunderstood affliction. Along with a team of medical specialists, author Dr. Richard Baxter demystifies tongue-ties and spells out how this condition can be treated comprehensively, safely and comfortably.<br /> Starting with a broad history of tongue-ties, this invaluable guide covers 21st-century assessment techniques and treatment options available for tethered oral tissues. Various accounts of patient challenges and victories are prominently featured as well. With the proper diagnosis and treatment, tethered oral tissues can be released with minimal discomfort, resulting in improvements during nursing, speaking, and feeding, while also reducing the incidence of dental issues, headaches, and even neck pain for children through adults.<br /> Aimed at both parents and professionals, <i>Tongue-Tied</i>encourages those affected while providing reassuring and valuable information. Dr. Baxter and his qualified team have pooled their expertise to make a difference in the lives of people.<br /><br />Having examined and treated newborns to adults with oral restrictions since the early 1980s, I have never seen such a complete and thorough study of the subject. Dr. Baxter has covered it all! His own personal experience was a great motivator to make this book a must-read for parents, physicians, dentists, lactation consultants, and therapists of all kinds.<br />Greg Notestine, DDS, AAACD<br />Founding Member and Past Director, International Affiliation of Tongue-Tie Professionals (IATP)<br /><br />There can be no greater feeling than to see that I have been able to stimulate individuals like Dr. Baxter to add to the body of knowledge needed to educate the healthcare community as well as parents on the need to have tethered oral tissues evaluated for the many potential problems related to the tongue, which is not just a muscle, but a part of our body that can affect many of the body’s systems, infant growth and development, speech and much more. Congratulations on writing this excellent book. <br />Larry Kotlow, DDS<br />Pioneer and Expert on Tethered Oral Tissues<br /><br />Tongue-Tied is a revolutionary resource for parents, patients, and professionals alike. Such a detailed, comprehensive, and research-based resource has not existed until now! As a speech-language pathologist and certified orofacial myologist, this will be on the top shelf of my library and will be a resource I recommend to my colleagues, patients, and students. Thank you for filling this gap! <br />Autumn R. Henning, MS, CCC-SLP, COM<br />Founder, TOTS Training <br /><br />How refreshing to have a resource for parents and professionals based on clinical expertise and current research! Tongue-Tied is a straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to the influence of tethered oral tissues on both speech and feeding development. <br />Melanie Potock, MA, CCC-SLP <br />Author of Adventures in Veggieland & co-author of Raising a Healthy Happy Eater<br /><br />As a surgical specialist and clinical researcher in the area of tethered oral tissues for close to 20 years, I have been waiting for a comprehensive text of this subject. Tongue-Tied is both a welcome addition and long overdue. It should serve as a concise guide for professionals as well as families seeking further knowledge on this topic. Thank you, Dr. Baxter, for moving our specialty forward! <br />Scott A. Siegel, MD, DDS, FACS, FICS, FAAP<br />Oral Surgeon
