Food & Nutrients in Disease Management (book cover front)

Doctors can 'prescribe' a forthcoming consumer health book based on this medical text. The companion book for the general public is well-fed with disease specific take-home information. Patients can accomplish surprising results with their knife and fork!

A growing number of patients recognize the importance of nutrition in treating diseases like cancer. "I've got breast cancer…" or "I've got diabetes…what about nutrition? What should I eat? What vitamins should I be taking?" Clinical questions that must be answered for the patient. Now, a reference work for doctors is available to help answer those questions.

"Food and Nutrients in Disease Management," developed by Hopkins trained Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt, is information that is long overdue. Written by 64 doctors and experts primarily for doctors, this book brings together cutting-edge material that is often difficult to find in mainstream medicine. These are doctors who are poised to prescribe foods and nutrients in conjunction with mainstream medical protocols. Many of the bright-light pioneers of nutritional medicine have a hand in crafting this practical medical textbook that meets the educational needs of a growing group of professionals.

Dr. Kohlstadt's textbook addresses over sixty recurrent and chronic medical conditions where food and its nutrients are clinically and scientifically proven to be beneficial. In addition to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, cancers, obesity and diabetes, the book will cover less well-known nutrient-associated conditions such as male infertility, kidney stones, preparing for surgery, neurologic disorders, and more. Recommendations for use of nutrition and nutritional supplements during treatment are made with the latest scientific evidence at hand.

"Food and Nutrients in Disease Management" offers clinicians sound advice for their patients, including well-documented clinical protocols, diagnostic testing, dosing recommendations, summaries for speedy clinical reference, and will help doctors improve their overall treatment outcomes.

"Every physician in the world should read, refer to, and apply the information on these pages" says Chrisiane Northrup, M.D., Diplomate, American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

What about a book for patients? Dr. Kohlstadt says, "Doctors can 'prescribe' a forthcoming consumer health book based on this medical text. The companion book for the general public is well-fed with disease specific take-home information. Patients can accomplish surprising results with their knife and fork!"

"Food and Nutrients in Disease Management" is being released by CRC Press January 2009, and follows the successful worldwide distribution of her first edited medical textbook, "Scientific Evidence for Musculoskeletal, Bariatric, and Sports Nutrition" (CRC Press 2006). These textbooks are available from CRCPress.com, Amazon.com, and major booksellers.

Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt, a Johns Hopkins trained physician and faculty associate, has practiced medicine on every continent of the world including Antarctica as the station physician.
