(PRWEB) May 1, 2010
And on it goes – the multi-billion-dollar diet industry cashes in royally on our hopes, fears and dreams, never really caring that what's really being sold to the masses is nothing more than a vicious cycle of false promises, fleeting weight loss, and flimsy dietary science.
Every B-list celebrity is a diet-industry spokesperson these days – from Sarah Ferguson to Jason Alexander and Marie Osmond. And then, in a class all her own, there's Kirstie Alley, who has built her post-Cheers TV career around the whole, never-ending cycle of her weight issues. She cashed in when she got slim – and now, having gained all her weight back (plus a few pounds!), she's turned the tables, cashing in once again on the ultimate indictment of the diet industry with her latest TV series, Kirstie Alley's Big Life.
Heather Caruso has a response to all of that. She's been a homeopathic practitioner, based in southern Ontario, for more than a decade and has helped countless numbers of patients with their health issues. Caruso is also an author and has just released her second healthy-living publication, Your Drug-Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss.
There are no magic weight-loss pills in Caruso's approach to diet, nutrition and weight management. There are no quick fixes, no 30-day programs, no unrealistic promises. Instead, Caruso advocates a natural approach to diet, nutrition and weight control. Her book lays it out very simply: Enjoy your life, enjoy your food – but keep your distance from the kinds of refined, over-processed, nutrition-poor foods that work against your body's natural responses.
Your Drug-Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss will come as a revelation to anyone who has struggled with weight-control issues. The book contains revealing chapters on issues such as food cravings (and what to do about them), insulin resistance, thyroid management, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalance and food sensitivities. And Caruso also includes some delicious, weight-smart recipes to get you started. As readers will quickly discover, Caruso is a "foodie" with a wicked sense of humour – she loves to cook and she loves a good meal. She has found, over the years, that you don't have to put yourself into food denial to keep your weight under control.
Your Drug-Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss is the perfect antidote to all the diet hype that floods the media these days. It's informative, eye-opening and very, very helpful for anyone who has ever struggled with food and weight-control issues. Some alternative health experts have already given it raves reviews. Here are just a few:
"Author and Homeopathic Doctor Heather Caruso guides you through the potential underlying causes to inappropriate weight gain while helping you to discover a deeper motivation to succeed. Your Drug Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss educates and inspires and is perfect for those who have experienced unsuccessful battle of weight loss through fad diets and who are ready to dedicate themselves to excellent health and optimal body composition while using the power of natural medicine." -- Bryce Wylde HD, TV host - Wylde On Health, Author of The Antioxidant Prescription
"As with her previous book, Heather Caruso has hit the nail on the head with a superb balance of helpful self care tips and homeopathic medicinal advice. This is an excellent resource for anyone seeking thoughtful and reliable solutions for weight loss and its associated conditions." -- David Brulé, HD, Riverdale Homeopathic Resources
"The most effective weight-loss efforts do not simply seek to reduce caloric intake and increase exercise but also seek to improve the overall health functioning so that the person’s body operates in the most efficient and effective way possible. Ultimately, THIS book will teach the reader to achieve this higher level of health…and one of the “side-effects” of these efforts will be most sustained weight-loss and improved quality of life. If THIS is your goal, get and read this book." -- Dana Ullman, MPH, author of The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy and Everybody’s Guide to Homeopathic Medicines.
"Weight loss and its physiological and psychological components is an intensely personal and highly individual matter that few if any of the current “weight loss” programs touted in the media address. Rather, they are one size fits all programs and often are unsuccessful as the individual regains lost weight because some of the underlying components that led to the weight gain in the first place, are not addressed.
"Your Drug Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss by Heather Caruso is a work that fills in the gaps left by most weight loss programs in that it addresses the physiological as well as the psychological components of loosing weight. The book is immensely practical providing information on why people gain weight, steps to follow when designing an individual weight loss program, nutrient suggestions to help the body utilize fat stores, nutrition guidelines, menus, exercise suggestions, and advise on the use of homeopathic medicines to help with metabolism, but most importantly, to address the psychological aspects of weight loss.
"What I also found useful is Heather’s pep talks located throughout the book. They let the reader know that there will be ups and downs while undergoing the program and that staying the course results in a positive outcome with a lasting effect. Even if you are undergoing one of the current “weight loss” programs, Your Drug Free Guide to Healthy Weight Loss will be a useful companion. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to lose weight and keep it off." -- Thomas A. Kruzel, N.D., author of The Homeopathic Emergency Guide, Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic, Scottsdale, Arizona
The last word belongs to Debby Bruck, founder of the Homeopathy World Community, who writes, in the book's foreword: "This book is a fabulous gift. It brings all the aspects of weight-loss issues together in one package . . . I highly recommend Caruso's new book. It covers all the bases."
Heather Caruso is also the author of Your Drug-Free Guide to Digestive Health: a Handbook of Homeopathic, Dietary and Other Natural Treatments for Common Digestive Disorders. In August 2009, the book became a top seller at http://www.ChaptersIndigo.ca.
