With so many changes happening each and every day in the medical field, it sure helps to have an up-to-date book that covers most of the major health concerns in the average person’s life. Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld has given us just that with Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld’s 2005 Breakthrough Health: Up-to-the-Minute Medical News You Need to Know.
Known as America’s most trusted doctor, Rosenfeld is the best-selling author of nine books, including the popular Live Now, Age Later, and his Sunday morning health talk show on Fox is a nationwide success. He is also the health editor and columnist for Parade Magazine, so he is truly tops in his field. With this new book of 2005 health and medicine updates and breakthroughs, he keeps us posted on the latest discoveries in heart disease, cancer, hormone therapy, allergies, Alzheimer’s, cold and flu, ulcers, sleep problems, skin problems, HIV/AIDS, cholesterol treatments, pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, bladder control, weight issues, pharmaceuticals and so much more. In fact, this book covers just about every major health issue that is on the minds of modern humans and offers the most current research, breakthroughs and on-the-verge studies coming out of the world’s leading medical universities, clinics and labs.
There are also chapters covering the latest advancements in wrinkle treatments, vitamins and supplements, the use of herbs in treating diseases, vaccinations, diabetes, and all kinds of practical information that might otherwise take you weeks of research online to uncover or numerous visits to your family doctor (and we all know how hard it is to get them to answer ONE question, let alone several). It’s all here, in this easy-to-understand book that is written for the average reader with little or no medical knowledge. The good doctor also weeds out myth from fact and separates hype from hope when it comes to treatments and expectations, allowing the reader to make the best decisions as to what paths of treatment might be best for his or her situation. This is fact-based, research-backed, straight-forward stuff.
Rosenfeld provides reader with a priceless one-stop resource for the most important and current medical news, giving “bottom line” advise for how to proceed when seeking help for a particular issue or problem. The only drawback is that so much changes so quickly in the world of health and medicine, we can only wonder how many new developments have occurred since this book went to press, but we can count on Dr. Rosenfeld to keep us posted in the 2006 Breakthrough Health edition!
But for the time being, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld’s 2005 Breakthrough Health is about as close as you can get to having an expert living with you, at your beck and call, ready to give you all the best and brightest information on the medical horizon. That makes this one book that is more than worth its weight in gold.
