For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for three quarters of our total healthcare costs, because we’re masking these illnesses with pills and temporary treatments, rather than addressing their underlying causes, he argues. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path of further illness. In The Disease Delusion, Dr. Bland explains what Functional Medicine is and what it can do for you. While advances in modern science have nearly doubled our lifespans in only four generations, our quality of life has not reached its full potential. Outlining the reasons why we suffer chronic diseases from asthma and diabetes to obesity, arthritis and cancer to a host of other ailments, Dr. Bland offers achievable, science-based solutions that can alleviate these common conditions and offers a roadmap for a lifetime of wellness.

Weaving together the authors' own healing narratives, diverse case studies and skillful step-by-step methodology, this book reveals the powerful benefits of shifting one's story from the conventional medical model of disease and cure, to the powerful honesty of narrative healing.

"I highly recommend this book as a healing narrative and an illustration of what can be accomplished when human beings put their minds together for healing purposes." Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD, Author Coyote Medicine and Narrative Medicine "This coaching model evokes a patient's intrinsic wisdom through participation in narrative and self-exploration." Larry Dossey, MD, Author Reinventing Medicine "The book Coaching and Healing pioneers a new area of research and practice, namely, the application of Integral Coaching to the process of healing. It's a natural match in many ways, and yet remains sadly under-applied at this time. Coaching and Healing aims to redress that lack by directly approaching the topic through the lens of Integral Theory and Integral Coaching itself..."

The practice of Medicine has changed dramatically over the last few hundred years. From its rudimentary beginnings, to a very detailed understanding of the human body functioning and anatomy, our current knowledge of the human being has never been so profound. Not only the medical sciences have evolved, but also many others like chemical, agricultural, astrological and physics just to name a few. The "modernization" of our way of life has brought comfort and improved our survival but at the same time has created an environment that is very detrimental to our health. This modern world full of radiation, toxicities, antibiotics and hormones fed to animals, genetically modified foods and other insults has created an epidemic of chronic diseases, like Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, Auto-Immune, Neurologic, Psychiatric and Respiratory diseases. Even diseases that were rare before like Autism and Fibromyalgia are rampant nowadays. Unfortunately, medicine has faced these serious challenges by using more and more chemical prescription (and over-the-counter) medications. Some of them have been very helpful but most of them have just created more insult to our already damaged bodies. These medications cause side effects, nutritional depletion and interact between each other creating sometimes more trouble than benefits. This book, Modern Medicine for Modern Times, is an introduction to a type of medicine that addresses the root causes of diseases. The book explores the history of Medicine, Pharmaceuticals and the emerging of Functional Medicine as a science. This type of Medicine goes beyond the complaint, disease or finding in a test or scan. It addresses the "Why" and solves it at its origin. Most of the chronic diseases of modern times have common causative factors on those root causes, like inflammation, oxidation, nutrient and hormone deficiencies, heavy metal and other environmental toxicities, dehydration, intestinal health, physical activity, food choices and stress management. The book explains each of these root or foundational causes of health and disease. And provides tips on how to balance them all, both in our bodies and in our environment, so we are able to mitigate, if not eradicate, most of these diseases of modern times.

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

The U.S. healthcare system is now spending many millions of dollars to improve "patient safety" and "inter-professional practice." Nevertheless, an estimated 100,000 patients still succumb to preventable medical errors or infections every year. How can health care providers reduce the terrible financial and human toll of medical errors and injuries that harm rather than heal? Beyond the Checklist argues that lives could be saved and patient care enhanced by adapting the relevant lessons of aviation safety and teamwork. In response to a series of human-error caused crashes, the airline industry developed the system of job training and information sharing known as Crew Resource Management (CRM). Under the new industry-wide system of CRM, pilots, flight attendants, and ground crews now communicate and cooperate in ways that have greatly reduced the hazards of commercial air travel. The coauthors of this book sought out the aviation professionals who made this transformation possible. Beyond the Checklist gives us an inside look at CRM training and shows how airline staff interaction that once suffered from the same dysfunction that too often undermines real teamwork in health care today has dramatically improved. Drawing on the experience of doctors, nurses, medical educators, and administrators, this book demonstrates how CRM can be adapted, more widely and effectively, to health care delivery. The authors provide case studies of three institutions that have successfully incorporated CRM-like principles into the fabric of their clinical culture by embracing practices that promote common patient safety knowledge and skills.They infuse this study with their own diverse experience and collaborative spirit: Patrick Mendenhall is a commercial airline pilot who teaches CRM; Suzanne Gordon is a nationally known health care journalist, training consultant, and speaker on issues related to nursing; and Bonnie Blair O'Connor is an ethnographer and medical educator who has spent more than two decades observing medical training and teamwork from the inside.

Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez details scientific principles and powerful tools to improve health and well-being to combat any disease. By utilizing various combinations of nutrition and supplements to balance the Autonomic Nervous System, he explains how our bodies were designed to be well and can heal themselves without drugs. The prevailing mindset of the conventional medical community, pharmaceutical companies and diet "experts" are biased towards a "one size fits all" approach. This book details how Drs. Pottenger, Gellhorn, Kelley and Gonzalez used evidence-based science along with observational and clinical experience to create medical theories that explain why no one ideal diet suits everyone and prove the effectiveness of individualized diets ranging from vegetarian to carnivore.

Teamwork is essential to improving the quality of patient care and reducing medical errors and injuries. But how does teamwork really function? And what are the barriers that sometimes prevent smart, well-intentioned people from building and sustaining effective teams? Collaborative Caring takes an unusual approach to the topic of teamwork. Editors Suzanne Gordon, Dr. David L. Feldman, and Dr. Michael Leonard have gathered fifty engaging first-person narratives provided by people from various health care professions. Each story vividly portrays a different dimension of teamwork, capturing the complexity—and sometimes messiness—of moving from theory to practice when it comes to creating genuine teams in health care. The stories help us understand what it means to be a team leader and an assertive team member. They vividly depict how patients are left out of or included on the team and what it means to bring teamwork training into a particular workplace. Exploring issues like psychological safety, patient advocacy, barriers to teamwork, and the kinds of institutional and organizational efforts that remove such barriers, the health care professionals who speak in this book ultimately have one consistent message: teamwork makes patient care safer and health care careers more satisfying. These stories are an invaluable tool for those moving toward genuine interprofessional and intraprofessional teamwork.

Functional Inflammology: Volume 1 is the culmination of several thousand research publications combined with Dr Vasquez's many years of clinical experience and teaching graduate-level students and doctorate-level clinicians worldwide. With radiographs, photos, acronyms, illustrations, flowcharts, and detailed-yet-simplifying explanations, Dr Vasquez makes it easier than ever for clinicians to grasp important concepts in integrative care and functional medicine and then to translate the basic science research and molecular biology into treatment plans that can be explained and used in "the real world" of clinical practice with patients. The associated video tutorials and recorded live conference presentations further help students and clinicians "get it" via Dr Vasquez's effective teaching style which embraces complexity while always emphasizing clinical applicability and psychosocial context. The Inflammation Mastery & Functional Inflammology series of books and videos translates important concepts and nutritional/biomedical science into easy and practical clinical applications for the prevention and treatment of disorders of sustained inflammation, which Dr Vasquez describes as "patterns of metabolic disturbance and inflammatory dysfunction" existing in three sequential and overlapping categories: 1) metabolic inflammation, 2) allergic inflammation, 3) autoimmune inflammation. This book includes access to video presentations which introduce the origin and components of the Functional Inflammology Protocol and FINDSEX(r) acronym. Post-publication updates to this information and important social and clinical contextualization are made available in videos and online repositories (access provided in the book), and the e-newsletter available from InflammationMastery and FunctionalInflammology.com. This textbook also provides access, via reprints or hyperlinks, to Dr Vasquez's published articles-an example of which is his recent paradigm-shifting editorial published in the journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (2014 January). The updated section on pain management allows students and clinicians to understand and apply manual, pharmacologic, nutritional and botanical medicine treatments for musculoskeletal pain, thereby providing better relief for patients and avoiding the hazards of NSAIDs, coxibs, steroids, opioids, immunosuppressants/immunoparalytics and biologics. Written with a modicum of style and humor, the paradigm-shifting revelations and plethora of clinical pearls are punctuated by biochemical insights and inconvenient political-environmental truths. In sum, Dr Vasquez's latest literary laxative disimpacts the dogma, shibboleths, and intellectual inertia that have held clinical medicine in a state of pathocentric pharmacodependent constipation for far too long; authentic long-awaited relief is now available for thousands of doctors and millions of patients.
