Each of us has a circadian rhythm--daily cyclical changes in chemistry and behavior--that are measured by shifts in body temperature, blood pressure, heartbeat, breathing, and body chemistries. When our circadian rhythms are disrupted by poor lifestyle choices, optimum health is sacrificed. The Circadian Prescription: Get in Step with Your Body's Natural Rhythms to Maximize Energy, Vitality, and Longevity by alternative health expert Sidney Baker, M.D., with Karen Baar, M.P.H., provides a simple 10-step plan to right your rhythms.
This thought-provoking, clearly written book based on experimental science and the experiences of Dr. Baker's patients will challenge many commonly held nutritional beliefs. At the center of the prescription is the Circadian Diet, a flexible eating plan designed to give the body the fuel it needs when it needs it (according to Baker, that means protein during the day and carbohydrates at night). The plan also includes breathing and meditation techniques, rhythmic exercise, and tips to improve sleep habits, beat jet lag, and overcome odd work shifts. Separate chapters are also devoted to weight loss, the role of intestinal flora and phytonutrients, and the specific needs of women, men, and children. --Ellen AlbertstonAbout the Author:
