  • - Spis dig fra gigt, skader og andre plager i dine led
    af Martin Kreutzer & Simon Weisdorf
    187,95 - 206,95 kr.

    Denne bog er godt nyt for 1,5 millioner danskere, der hver dag står med valget: smerter eller medicin. Nemlig de 700.000 danskere, der plages af gigt, og de ca. 800.000, der døjer med skader i deres led. Bogen er Danmarks første anti-inflammatoriske manual til, hvordan man holder sine led velsmurte og smertefri med helt naturlige midler. Især nem og lækker mad, der virkelig kan mærkes i leddene. Bag bogen står kost- og livstilsvejleder Martin Kreutzer, der tidligere har skrevet to bestsellere om anti- inflammatorisk kost. I årenes løb har Martin hjulpet hundredvis af mennesker med gigtsygdomme, der udspringer af inflammation, dvs. en kronisk betændelsestilstand, der giver ømme og stive led. Han har også fået skadede atleter på alle ambitionsniveauer tilbage på sporet igen med anti-inflammatorisk kost i kraftige doser. Gigt påvirker hver anden 40-årig og stort set alle over 60 år. Skader kan ramme i alle aldre, men bliver sværere at få bugt med, når man kommer op i årene. Men ny forskning viser, at mange ledproblemer kan dæmpes og holdes i bero, hvis man spiser en række helt bestemte madvarer – og skruer ned for andre. Bogen giver klar besked om, hvilke madvarer der mest effektivt sikrer kroppens frie bevægelighed og gør det let for læseren at nå op på de rette doser med nemme madopskrifter, der har den helt perfekte sammensætning. Opskrifterne, der har større anti-inflammatorisk helingskraft end alle tidligere bøger om inflammation, er komponeret af Simon Weisdorf, mad- og sundhedsentusiasten bag det nye, succes-site cookingclub.dk, der når ud til flere hundrede tusind danskere. Bogen giver også gode råd om, hvordan man gavner leddene maksimalt med forskellige former for træning og ved at tage hånd om udfordringer som stress og søvn.

    Den antiinflammatoriske kost har vist sit værd mod talrige livsstilssygdomme. Nu kommer den i en ny version, der sætter kurs mod hjernen. Hvordan giver man sin hjerne det optimale brændstof? Hvilke mad- og drikkevarer kan være udslagsgivende for, at man får energi, overskud, glæde og gode ideer og kan holde koncentrationen og huske – selv når man har lynende travlt og er under pres? Nøglen til at frigive hjernens positive kræfter og opbygge et solidt bolværk over for alt det negative som fx stress hedder i høj grad antiinflammatorisk kost, her i en ny og lidt anderledes version med ekstra fokus på særlige råvarer og måltidsstrategier, der specifikt påvirker hjernen. Stadig flere mennesker rammes af sygdomme som stress, depression og demens, og der forskes i disse år intenst på området. Hvordan man bedst muligt forebygger disse sygdomme og omsætter den nyeste viden på området til helt almindelig hverdagsmad, er omdrejningspunktet i denne nye bog fra Martin Kreutzer og Simon Weisdorf, der er en opfølger til sidste års bestseller Velsmurt. Heldigvis behøver man ikke gå på jagt efter sjældne råvarer og ingredienser for at booste sin mentale sundhed. Langt de fleste hjernevenlige madvarer kan fås i et helt almindeligt supermarked. Bogen gennemgår de koststrategier og næringsstoffer, som forskerne anser for særlig vigtige i forhold til hjernen og er en lettilgængelig guide til de antiinflammatoriske kostprincipper. 68 fristende opskrifter, der rummer de rette mængder af alt det, en sund hjerne kan drømme om, gør det ekstra nemt at kaste sig ud i den sunde, hjernestyrkende kost.

    Makkerparret bag flere bestsellere om anti-inflammatorisk kost viser i deres nye bog vejen til, hvordan man én gang for alle kan opnå et vægttab og svælge i lækker mad.Den anti-inflammatoriske kost er med god grund berømmet for sine mange gode virkninger mod en lang række helbredsproblemer, f.eks. gigtsmerter, overbelastningsskader og hjerte-kar-syg[1]domme. Kombinationen af fede fisk, planteolier, nødder, grøntsager, frugt og andre råvarer går i et nærmest magisk samspil ind og understøtter kroppens immunforsvar og dæmper den tilstand af kronisk inflammation, som kan få mange skavanker til at blusse op.Derimod vil det være nyt for mange, at den anti-inflammatoriske kost også har et andet vigtigt potentiale: Den kan reducere ens fedtdepoter på sundeste vis. Især hvis man har et livmål i den høje ende, kan der ligge en kæmpestor anti-inflammatorisk gevinst i at smide nogle kilo, da mavefedt fungerer som en rugekasse for inflammation, der kan sprede sig til resten af kroppen.Tab sig sundere med anti-inflammatorisk kost forklarer, hvordan man får fuld glæde af de gode madvarers slankende egenskaber – uden at give køb på sundhed, mæthed og ikke mindst velsmag. Som læser bliver man klædt godt på til projektet med nogle få, vigtige retningslinjer for, hvordan måltiderne skal skrues sammen, et forslag til en kostplan – og 55 lækre opskrifter, der ikke bare giver anti-inflammatoriske superkræfter, men også en god og langvarig mæthed mellem måltiderne.Bogen indeholder desuden en udførlig guide til, hvordan man kan skrue endnu mere op for vægttabet og den anti-inflammatoriske virkning i kroppen ved at dyrke motion, ikke mindst ved at gå.

    This book presents paraproteinemia and the highly complex scientific information behind it to clinicians in a way they can understand and, ultimately, apply to their diagnostic and treatment practices. Paraproteinemia or dysproteinemia is characterized by the overproduction of an immunoglobulin by clonal expansion of cells from the B cells lineage which includes the plasma cells. The resultant monoclonal protein can be composed of the entire immunoglobulin or of its components. The identification and categorization of the different representatives of this group of disorders have traveled a long distance, but despite its high prevalence there is surprisingly limited evidence, in some areas, to guide the best clinical practice both at the time of diagnosis and during follow up. This book seeks to fill that gap.  The book is divided into three sections, introductory chapters, disease entities and experimental therapies. The text guides clinicians through these diseases and disorders. The group of renal diseases attributed to deposition of monoclonal immunoglobulins or their components are arranged as one disease category in order to simplify the understanding of these complicated diseases in plasma cell dysplasia. In emulation of this practical approach, at a larger scale, the volume editors and chapter authors attempt to encompass the whole spectrum of the paraproteinemias in this text. This will have the dual benefit of offering the audience a panoramic view of this group of disorders and simultaneously keeping them focused on its individual representatives. There have been many recent advances in diagnosis, risk stratifications, and management of many members of this group of diseases and they are explored in depth here.  This is an ideal guide for rheumatologists, hematologists, nephrologists, immunologists, oncologists, and relevant trainees caring for patients with paraproteinemia and related disorders.

    This autobiography chronicles the life and career of Haralampos M. Moutsopoulos, an internationally renowned professor of medicine and prolific researcher on Sjogren's syndrome and autoimmune rheumatic diseases. In language that is simple and direct, he takes us on a fascinating journey from the days of his first scientific awakenings at a hospital in his native town of Ioannina, Greece, through his university years in Athens and training in the U.S., to his eventual return to his homeland. In Greece, he developed two centers of excellence in his field, first at the newly founded University of Ioannina Medical School Department of Internal Medicine and, second, at the Athens University Medical School, Department of Pathophysiology, where he taught until his retirement in 2011. Along the way, he introduces us to his teachers and mentors, and to the colleagues and students he mentored in turn, many of whom went on to assume high-ranking positions in Greece and abroad. A major theme throughout the book is his impassioned struggle for excellence, meritocracy, and transparency in universities and in the National Health System in Greece. Peppered with both amusing and unsettling incidents from this lifelong crusade to raise professional standards and against misconduct, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in learning about or entering the medical profession.

    This book is an in depth guide to chronic and neuropathic pain. The issue of chronic and neuropathic pain is very prevalent, yet only a fraction of the symptoms and root causes, as well as potential treatment plans, are properly understood. Additionally, less than half of cases are accurately identified and properly treated. The existing drugs, although classified as very strong and powerful, cannot provide lasting relief to chronic and neuropathic pain. Thus, with all the unique features of this condition, this book presents a systematic way of diagnosing and approaching this condition so every practitioner can appropriately treat their patients. In addition to introducing key concepts, like classification of chronic pain and the challenges patients and practitioners face when dealing with and treating chronic and neuropathic pain, this book also covers different syndromes that can lead to neuropathic pains. It discusses how to monitor progress by using outcome measures, the presence of chronic and neuropathic pain in children and young adults, and the pathophysiology of neuropathic pain as it relates to the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Interestingly, the latter is not presently addressed except with the usual pain drugs for general pain-this book aims to revolutionize the approach to chronic and neuropathic pain by exploring it separately from the clinical approach to general pain. It is interesting to note that these cytokines require a specific mode of action if we want to neutralize them in our system, and this concept will be discussed in the regenerative intervention sections. Since it is so necessary to address the many factors to chronic and neuropathic pain as laid out in the proposed table of contents, it is also critical include as varied authors as possible to address this condition from all areas being covered. The team assembled to author the chapters included in this text come from diverse backgrounds of practice and clinical and research interests, from physical medicine and rehabilitation to anesthesiology to radiology and interventional pain medicine. This is an ideal guide for all clinicians caring for patients with chronic and neuropathic pain.

    Rheumatic diseases or rheumatism are disorders that cause inflammation of the joints or connective tissue. The main cause of rheumatic disease is the malfunctioning of the immune system that attacks body's own tissues, affecting the joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones and organs. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, capsulitis, palindromic rheumatism, etc. are among the most common types of rheumatic disorders. Osteoarthritis is a type of degenerative joint disease that results from the breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. The major factors that lead to it are previous joint injury and abnormal joint or limb development. The diagnosis of rheumatic disorders is done through physical examination and specialized laboratory and imaging tests. These include blood test, urine test, creatinine level test, uric acid test, and the ESR and CRP tests. This book provides significant information to help the readers develop a good understanding of the clinical perspectives of rheumatic diseases. It is a collective contribution of a renowned group of international experts. Those with an interest in the treatment and study of rheumatic diseases would find this book helpful.
