In the field of pain medicine, the interventions that can improve a patient's pain, mood, and functionality are only as effective as the patient's willingness to follow recommended treatment plans. Facilitating Treatment Adherence in Pain Medicine provides a practical guide to understanding and improving patient adherence with regards to both opioid and non-opioid pharmacotherapy, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain interventions, and use of biometrics and behavioral techniques. The book also explores the ethics of dealing with patients who are non-adherent.<br /><br />Facilitating Treatment Adherence in Pain Medicine is the first book to address the obstacle patient non-adherence poses to reaching therapeutic goals in pain medicine, making it an ideal resource for pain physicians and primary care physicians who manage patients with chronic pain.

<div>This book is a compilation of past and recent knowledge in the field of emerging drug resistance. The book covers major aspects of drug resistance in bacteria, fungi, malaria, and cancer.</div><div>Human survival on earth is constantly threatened by disease and syndrome. From the early days, the aim of research in medicine was to find therapeutic agents that can improve the quality of human life. Although humans are dependent on natural compounds from early days their dependence of drugs increased excessively in last century. The advances in chemistry and biology have helped researchers to identify the drugs that have improved treatment of many diseases. The primary factor for treatment of these diseases is dependent on the efficacy of drugs available. The development of resistance to these drugs is one of the major hindrances. Although there are number of books available on this topic, “drug resistance” biology across kingdoms has never been discussed in a coherent way.</div>

<b><i>Note: This book is intended for those already following an anti-inflammatory diet (low carb, paleo, GAPS, etc), so please get started with that before reading further.</i></b><br /><br />Like it or not, we're all victims of a damaging dietary past and over-medicating present. And this has left us with varying degrees of digestive distress, malabsorption, bacteria imbalance (dysbiosis), and intestinal permeability.For the lucky ones, this has only presented itself as bloating or cramps, excessive burping and gas, bad breath, low hunger or energy, an irritable bowel (diarrhea, constipation), heartburn and acid reflux, or chronic nutrient deficiencies. But for the not-so lucky ones, or for those that ignore these early signs and symptoms, these gastrointestinal issues can progress to leaky gut and an increased risk of the chronic inflammatory conditions and auto-immune diseases listed below:<br /><ul><li>Fibromyalgia (or Chronic Pain)</li><li>Rheumatoid Arthritis</li><li>ADHD and Tourette's</li><li>Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - Chron's, Ulcerative Colitis</li><li>Depression or Anxiety</li><li>Multiple Sclerosis</li><li>Lupus</li><li>Chronic Fatigue Syndrome</li><li>Type 1 Diabetes</li><li>Asthma and Allergies</li><li>Parkinson's</li><li>Autism</li><li>Dermatitis - Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis</li><li>Chronic Kidney Disease</li><li>Schizophrenia</li></ul>The goods news is, you can eliminate these gastrointestinal issues and reduce your risk of these degenerative diseases by removing the foods that promote inflammation and bad bacterial growth, and consuming foods that feed and support the gut and beneficial flora that live there. With a grain-free, nutrient-rich, real-food diet, full of gut-feeding vegetable fiber, and intestinal-supporting bone broth being the best way to accomplish this.<br /><br />But the bad news is, because of our prescription-packed medicine cabinets (antibiotics, NSAIDs, antacids), fake-food nutritional history, stress-packed daily lives, and unavoidable environmental exposure, this is not enough! With many of those adopting a low carb diet benefiting from a reduction in total bacteria, but never eradicating the yeast (ex: candida) and damaging parasites (ex: h. pylori) that still live there. And many of those adopting a paleo diet feeling better with less inflammation and digestive issues, but continuing to feed the glucose-gorging parasites and pathogens that have set have set up shop in their large and small intestine (ex: SIBO).<br /><br />Or put another way, we need to take additional action to heal the gut, and this starts with the 5-part protocol that follows. As it improves digestion, eliminates unwanted bacteria, strengthens the GI tract, re-establishes healthy gut flora, and provides ongoing dietary and lifestyle best practices to ensure it continues.<br /><br />And yes, it's definitely not easy, it does take a significant amount of time, and it will require consistent effort going forward. But, as you'll discover, it's necessary, it's worth it, and it's the only way to enjoy greater health and performance and increase your protection against disease and degeneration.<br /><br /><i>"The control of man's diet is readily accomplished, but mastery over his intestinal bacterial flora is not." <b>- Bond Stow, 1914</b></i>

<h2><i> MEDICAL TERRORISM THRILLER </i></h2><br /> It’s the new age of terrorism, where enemy interests employ the use of modern tools, weapons, tactics, and theories to achieve goals that have destructive, bone-chilling, and disturbing physical and emotional effects. Today’s terrorists are tech-savvy, manipulative, powerful, well-funded, and supported by entire networks of global experts. <br /><br /><b> A Scottish offshore drilling platform in the North Sea becomes unresponsive to all communication attempts. <br /><br /> In Moscow, the Russian president and his top advisors seek the best, fastest strategies to defeat and ruin the United States. More recently, that includes government-sanctioned terrorism.<br /><br /> A commercial flight, carrying 423 passengers and 18 crew from Tokyo to San Francisco, disappears in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Why?<br /><br /></b><h2>In the new age of terrorism, nothing is what it seems.<br />No one is safe. <br />There's no willpower, no intelligence, and no spirit that won't succumb to the right mix of drugs.<br /><br /></h2>A captivating and unsettling page-turner, <b><i>The Ghost Pattern</i></b> explores a new dimension of terrorism, one that happens around the world on a daily basis without making any headlines. Or without making the right headlines. What’s really going on behind the scenes? <br /><br /> Alex Hoffmann returns as the heroine of <b><i>The Ghost Pattern.</i></b> She embarks on a breathtaking expedition to stop a brilliant terrorist in his tracks. Risking her life and challenging everyone’s beliefs, she is relentless to find the truth and the man who threatens the core of human existence. <br /><br />Join Alex on an explosive mission as she ventures behind enemy lines in a heart-stopping race against time and against all odds, in this fast-paced, riveting medical terrorism thriller. <br /><br /> Fans of Jack Ryan, Jason Bourne, and Jack Reacher will enjoy Alex Hoffmann. <br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Leslie Wolfe</i></b><br />“Leslie Wolfe weaves a wonderful story of espionage, current technology, warfare.” - Lucas McWilliams<br />“Wolfe keeps readers turning the pages...” - Kirkus Reviews<br />“Leslie Wolfe has the talent that is comparable to the likes of a Tom Clancy or a Michael Crichton, or even James Patterson.” - Dennis Waller<br /><br /><b>Readers and Critics Talking About Alex Hoffman Series Book Three, <i>The Backup Asset:</i></b> <br />-- “I wanted to simultaneously hug and hit Ms. Wolfe when she first set up (all unbeknownst to this reader) and then teased us with a clue to her next book. I, for one, don't want to wait.”<br />-- “A frenetic rollercoaster ride filled with twists and turns that only slows down to give the reader a chance to swallow the reasoning behind the antagonists’ justifications for their treachery.” <br />-- “If you are a fan of Jack Ryan or Jason Bourne you will absolutely love this.”<br />-- “Wow! Roller coaster ride of espionage, cold (and not so cold!) war and the hard work to combat the threat to the U.S.”<br />-- “A techno-thriller chock-full of suspense, action, and espionage.” <br />-- “Wow! What can I say? This novel blew me away!”<br />-- “This is a wonderful work of fiction, and I cannot wait to read more.”<br />

<p>It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They're harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. </p><p><em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Steven Kotler and high performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution—from the home of SEAL Team Six to the Googleplex, the Burning Man festival, Richard Branson’s Necker Island, Red Bull’s training center, Nike’s innovation team, and the United Nations’ Headquarters. And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide. </p><p>Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a <em>trillion</em> dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives. Driven by four accelerating forces—psychology, neurobiology, technology and pharmacology—we are gaining access to and insights about some of the most contested and misunderstood terrain in history. Stealing Fire is a provocative examination of what’s actually possible; a guidebook for anyone who wants to radically upgrade their life.</p>
