<div><b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b></div><div><br /></div><div>Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard.</div><div><br /></div><div>Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.</div>

<p><em>From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.</em></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. 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><b><b>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</b> </b>• Fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, weight gain, and even the aging process itself with one simple, scientifically proven plan to reverse disease—as well as prevent and reduce symptoms—from the world-renowned pioneer of lifestyle medicine.</b><br /><br /> Dean Ornish, M.D., has directed revolutionary research proving, for the first time, that lifestyle changes can often reverse—undo!—the progression of many of the most common and costly chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level.<br /><br /> Medicare and many insurance companies now cover Dr. Ornish’s lifestyle medicine program for reversing chronic disease because it consistently achieves bigger changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than have ever been reported—based on forty years of research published in the leading peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.<br /><br /> Now, in this landmark book, he and Anne Ornish present a simple yet powerful new unifying theory explaining why these same lifestyle changes can reverse so many different chronic diseases and how quickly these benefits occur. They describe what it is, why it works, and how you can do it:<br /><br /> <i>• Eat well</i>: a whole foods, plant-based diet naturally low in fat and sugar and high in flavor. The “Ornish diet” has been rated “#1 for Heart Health” by <i>U.S. News & World Report</i> every year from 2011 to 2017. <br /> <i>• Move more</i>: moderate exercise such as walking<br /> <i>• Stress less</i>: including meditation and gentle yoga practices<br /> <i>• Love more</i>: how love and intimacy transform loneliness into healing<br /><br />With seventy recipes, easy-to-follow meal plans, tips for stocking your kitchen and eating out, recommended exercises, stress-reduction advice, and inspiring patient stories of life-transforming benefits—for example, several people improved so much after only nine weeks they were able to avoid a heart transplant—<i>Undo It! </i>empowers readers with new hope and new choices.<br /><br /><b>Praise for</b> <i><b>Undo It!</b></i><br /><br /> “The Ornishes’ work is elegant and simple and deserving of a Nobel Prize, since it can change the world!”<b>—Richard Carmona, M.D., MPH, FACS, seventeenth Surgeon General of the United States</b><br /><br /> “If you want to see what medicine will be like ten years from now, read this book today.”<b>—Rita F.

"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 />
