The Inflammation Cure by William Joel Meggs, MD, PhD

Though I have already mentioned this book, The Inflammation Cure by William Joel Meggs, M.D., Ph.D., it bears my recommendation again here. His comment on page 70 urges me to work harder to resolve my sinusitis:

"The whole system is like a giant feedback loop. The nervous system controls inflammation and can even initiate inflammation without activation of the immune system. The immune system, in turn, communicates with the nervous system through its own chemical ...

Black Patent Shoes, Dancing with MS

This is a book written by Eva Marsh, a lady who has recovered from ms through positive thinking and intense physio. She even went back to university and got an engineering degree plus a bachelor's degree.
She is a true inspiration.
Her moto is keep moving. Walk, walk and walk and climb stairs as often as you can, without harming yourself.
She is Canadian so it touched me even more.
The best part is that ...

Know Your Fats by Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.

Here is another book I recommend: Know Your Fats by Mary G. Enig, Ph.D. Although the author says it is written for the general public, I found the first chapter a little tough--with its descriptions of saturated fats, monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, cis and trans configurations, single and double bonds, methyl and carboxyl groups; but if you wade on, the book becomes easier to read with lots of usable information.

For example, (page 85) "Ancel ...

Protein Power

The book, Protein Power by Michael Eades, M.D. and Mary Dan Eades, M.D., may be considered a "diet" book but, having re-read it now for the third time, I find it filled with much good general information--especially about hyperinsulinemia (my favorite subject, as you all know)!

I recommend it to you readers out there.

Stephen White

I don't know if this is new information...Stephen White has written a few Tom Clancy'ish type books. He is a psychologist who also has MS. From what i've heard, the wife of the main character also has MS.

Heal Your Heart with EECP by Dr. Debra Braverman

I am currently reading Heal Your Heart with EECP by Debra Braverman, M.D. This Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) supposedly is "the only noninvasive way to overcome heart disease" and may improve many other conditions--diabetes, congestive heart failure, lupus, peripheral neuropathy and others (though not mentioning MS). Its mechanism is to increase blood flow (by "passive exercise" as the author puts it).

It is painless, noninvasive, and relatively inexpensive (approved by the FDA, Medicare, covered by ...

New book: Next by Michael Crichton

I saw the Charlie Rose program yesterday in which he interviewed Michael Crichton about his new novel, Next. I have not read it, but it sounds good.

The author has an M.D. degree from Harvard and this book apparently deals with genetics; I have enjoyed several of his other books so I will look for this one, too.

next reading group book

I chose to be patriotic and go with a Canadian collection of short stories:

"Home from the Vinyl Cafe", by Stuart McLean.

It seems to be available at Amazon in the US and UK, not that I'm telling you where to get your books...it might be in libraries too... You can also buy the book from the CBC website. "The Vinyl Cafe" is a weekly radio program and there are a number of story collections ...

Let's discuss: The cat who could read backwards

This was a fine book and all the books that follow in the "The Cat Who Could..." series. Qwill, a reporter who befriends a cat who then helps him to catch the bad guys.

I'm a cat-person myself so I fully believe the story ;) Sometimes you get a better answer when you talk to a cat rather than talking to yourself.

Reading the story now gives ...

Peace Like a River - Leif Enger

I can tell after only 100 or so pages that this is one of those books that's going to make me want to be a better person. Has anyone else read this book?
