Heart: A History

Heart: A History

The spark of life, fount of emotion, house of the soul–the heart lies at the centre of every facet of our existence. It’s so bound up in our deepest feelings that it can physically change shape when we experience emotional trauma.

For centuries, the human heart seemed beyond our understanding: an inscrutable shuddering mass that was somehow the driver of emotion and the seat of the soul. As the cardiologist and bestselling author Sandeep Jauhar shows in Heart: A History, it was only recently that we demolished age-old taboos and devised the transformative procedures that have changed the way we live.

Deftly alternating between key historical episodes and his own work, combining his family’s own moving history of heart disease with gripping scenes from the operating theatre, Jauhar tells the colourful and little-known story of the doctors who risked their careers and the patients who risked their lives to know and heal our most vital organ. He introduces us to Daniel Hale Williams, the African American doctor who performed the world’s first open heart surgery in Gilded Age Chicago. We meet C. Walton Lillehei, who connected a patient’s circulatory system to a healthy donor’s, paving the way for the heart-lung machine. And we encounter Wilson Greatbatch, who saved millions by inventing the pacemaker?by accident. Jauhar deftly braids these tales of discovery, hubris, and sorrow with moving accounts of his family’s history of heart ailments and the patients he’s treated over many years. He also confronts the limits of medical technology, arguing that future progress will depend more on how we choose to live than on the devices we invent.

Affecting, engaging, and beautifully written, Heart: A History takes the full measure of the only organ that can move itself.

Surviving Cancer: A New Perspective on Why Cancer Happens & Your Key Strategies for a Healthy Life

Surviving Cancer: A New Perspective on Why Cancer Happens & Your Key Strategies for a Healthy Life
Surviving Cancer offers hope and a strategy for anyone who has been diagnosed with a solitary tumor.

In reading these pages, you will learn that the body can continue living while accommodating a solitary cancer. There are actions you can take that may prevent it from spreading, even if there are complications.

Surviving Cancer explains how you can change your diet and lifestyle habits to survive cancer — to keep it from metastasizing and spreading to other organs in your body. Most of all, it will explain how you can literally starve cancer cells… forcing them to disappear or die.

The main focus of this book will teach you that diet is perhaps the key factor in defeating cancer, especially avoiding grains. Grains create enormous amounts of glucose in your bloodstream–and cancer cells thrive on glucose to survive and multiply. High blood sugar levels also encourage the body to release insulin, and again, this is a great danger to your cancer. Insulin promotes cell growth, including cancer cells.

The book provides insightful information on the causes of cancer, how it forms, how it may spread, and what you can do to control the cancer and return to a healthy life. The chapters also contain specific advice on avoiding exposure to environmental toxins; the value of sleep, exercise, and stress reduction; the use of spices in cooking; building good bacteria in your gut; and many other factors you con control that may help prevent a cancer from spreading to other parts of the body.

This book is for anyone who has cancer localized to a single site and not yet colonized in another part of the body. It is also for anyone who believes they are at risk of cancer due to heredity, lifestyle, working conditions, or for any other reason.

Surviving Cancer is also especially important for anyone with Type 2 diabetes, with or without cancer, to learn about the link between the two.If you have diabetes, this is an important cautionary book to read to prevent yourself from developing cancer.

Aroused – The History of Hormones and How They Control Just About Everything

Aroused – The History of Hormones and How They Control Just About Everything
Metabolism, behavior, sleep, mood swings, the immune system, fighting, fleeing, puberty, and sex: these are just a few of the things our bodies control with hormones. Armed with a healthy dose of wit and curiosity, medical journalist Randi Hutter Epstein takes us on a journey through the unusual history of these potent chemicals from a basement filled with jarred nineteenth-century brains to a twenty-first-century hormone clinic in Los Angeles.

Brimming with fascinating anecdotes, illuminating new medical research, and humorous details, Aroused introduces the leading scientists who made life-changing discoveries about the hormone imbalances that ail us, as well as the charlatans who used those discoveries to peddle false remedies. Epstein exposes the humanity at the heart of hormone science with her rich cast of characters, including a 1920s doctor promoting vasectomies as a way to boost libido, a female medical student who discovered a pregnancy hormone in the 1940s, and a mother who collected pituitaries, a brain gland, from cadavers as a source of growth hormone to treat her son. Along the way, Epstein explores the functions of hormones such as leptin, oxytocin, estrogen, and testosterone, demystifying the science of endocrinology.

A fascinating look at the history and science of some of medicine’s most important discoveries, Aroused reveals the shocking history of hormones through the back rooms, basements, and labs where endocrinology began.

Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life’s Greatest Challenges


Most of us at some point in our lives will be struck by major traumas such as the sudden death of a loved one, a debilitating disease, assault, or a natural disaster. Resilience refers to the ability to ‘bounce back’ after encountering difficulty. This book provides a guide to building emotional, mental and physical resilience by presenting ten factors to help anyone become more resilient to life’s challenges. Specific resilience factors such as facing fear, optimism, and social support are described through the experiences and personal reflections of highly resilient survivors. These survivors also describe real-life methods for practicing and benefiting from the resilience factors. As resilience is the complex product of genetic, psychological, biological, social, and spiritual factors, the authors investigate resilience from multiple scientific perspectives. They synthesize the latest literature on the topic, describe their own research on resilience, and quote from their interviews with highly resilient people.
