A Diagnostician's Delight

This is a fairly complete volume written on a
multiplicity of disease processes. For instance ,
arthritic disease processes are described together
with blood tests like the ESR and imaging of the
sacroiliac joints. The optimal mix of foods is
listed for diabetics. i.e. 45-65% carbs, 25% fats
and 10-15% protein.

Medicinal treatment protocols are provided.
For instance TNF inhibitors, breathing exercises,
postural improvements and NSAIDS are provided for
certain arthritis sufferers.

Complicated or rare disease processes are described .
For instance, polycythemia vera involves increased
blood viscosity which is treated with a phlebotomy
protocol. Patients with polycythemia vera may live 10-15
years according to the author.

Patients should always check with
complementary medical practitioners for alternative
medicinal treatments in individual cases. These alternative
medicinal treatments may help with the grossest

For incurable diseases, the thing to do is to alleviate
the grossest symptoms by a combination of medicines,
vitamins, physical and other therapies. A beauty of this
volume is that extensive research has been done on the
most popular protocols utilized in medicine today.

This volume is a good starting point for approaching
a very difficult diagnosis for an elusive disease.
