The fifth edition of Life Extension’s “Disease Prevention and Treatment” book is now available in eBook format.
Also available in hardcover, Disease Prevention and Treatment includes 130 evidence-based protocols that highlight novel and integrative strategies for the prevention and management of conditions ranging from cancer and cardiovascular disease to arthritis and neurological disorders. It is based on thousands of scientific articles and the clinical experience of physicians worldwide.
“Disease Prevention and Treatment” also includes information on how to use natural compounds, hormones, novel pharmaceutical agents, and preventive blood testing to complement mainstream therapies and combat the diseases of aging.
“It’s been Life Extension’s mission for 34 years to provide this kind of lifesaving information,” says Luke Huber, ND, MBA, vice president of product innovation and scientific development. “The fifth edition of ‘Disease Prevention and Treatment’ is packed with detailed suggestions that can help readers break free of the conventional ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to disease management.”
“Our healthcare system is stagnated by bureaucracy and archaic standards of care, and patients regularly succumb to chronic diseases despite myriad evidence that there are effective treatments available,” adds Kira Schmid, ND, scientific director at Life Extension.
“Patients must be empowered with cutting-edge scientific knowledge if they want to achieve good health in the context of the mediocrity that is the American healthcare system,” adds Dr. Schmid. “’Disease Prevention and Treatment’ goes a long way in helping to accomplish this.”
Blake Gossard, the book’s chief editor, emphasizes the failure of the medical and scientific communities to inform patients and their families about potentially life-saving research.“Most people go to a doctor’s office and think they’re getting excellent care based upon the cumulative knowledge of the medical and scientific communities,” says Gossard. “Sadly, that’s not the case. There’s so much more out there that science has to offer, but a staggering amount of evidence gets relegated to discussion among a few researchers and never even reaches clinicians, let alone patients.”
Gossard goes on to note “That’s why Life Extension devoted considerable time and resources to developing the fifth edition of ‘Disease Prevention and Treatment.’ We believe that everyone afflicted with a health problem has the right to be informed about the latest scientific discoveries that may be able to positively influence their situation, and that this information needs to be presented in a manner that someone without formal medical training can comprehend and act upon.”
