About this title

Synopsis:

Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution, Dr. Atkins' Superenergy Diet, and Dr. Atkins' Nutrition Breakthrough ushered in a new era in the way we look at health and nutrition.  Now, in his most important book to date, the noted physician and best-selling author calls for dramatic changed in conventional medicine and reveals the "new medicine" of the future that us already working wonders for thousands of patients today!

Dr. Atkins' Health Revolution offers readers a powerful new program based on a low-carbohydrate/low-sugar diet combined with nutritional supplements, biologic medicines, and the latest breakthroughs in mainstream medicine that can produce a level of health and fitness that conventional medicine alone can't offer.  Dr. Atkins calls this revolutionary approach "complementary"--and explains how it is the way we will all be treated...ten years from now!  Using patient-tested therapies and treatments from a wide variety of healing arts, Dr. Atkins presents a commonsense guide to alternative medicine that works.  Here is the latest information on:

The crucial connection between diabetes and carbohydrates.
>A simple, effective drug-free way to prevent headaches.
Treating PMS. fibroids, and other female problems without surgery and without hormones.
The role of chelation and EDTA therapy in treating cardiovascular disease.
The many causes and many cures of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Plus the Atkins Center's nutritional prescriptions for insomnia, hypertension, arthritis, osteoporosis, allergies, and much, much more!

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution here expands his scope, offering a comprehensive, very optimistic approach to health. More than 25 years of clinical experience and research have convinced Atkins that some of the most effective and least side-effective medical practices are those suppressed by the medical establishmentthe FDA, the AMA, conservative research foundations and the pharmaceutical industry. He grants orthodoxy its "heroic" successes in acute situations, but sensibly abhors chronic, debilitating drug therapies. The core of "complementary medicine" is a new version of the sugar-free Atkins diet. Depending on his patients' needs, he combines nutritional prudence and vitamin and mineral supplements with selected "alternative medicine" methods (chelation, homeopathy, acupuncture). It's an individualized approach that can't be "proven" except by the impressive results Atkins claims to achieve. His arguments are coherent and often convincing, his case studies uplifting, and his supporting data ample. But his effusive style reads alternately like a promotion for the Atkins Center and a textbook abstract.
