Your life and health could depend on it.” —Roy Martina, MD, bestselling author of Emotional Balance “Four years ago, my fibromyalgia symptoms forced me to ‘retire’ from medical practice. Thanks to Ellen Cutler’s treatments, the guaifenesin protocol, and acupuncture, my health is so much better. I have been able to return to practice medicine as a fibromyalgia consultant, and I feel blessed to be able to continue my recovery with the help of Dr. Cutler’s digestive enzymes and clearing treatments.” —Melissa Congdon, MD, fibromyalgia consultant If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s Disease, colitis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, candidiasis, sinusitis, hay fever, environmental illnesses, and other autoimmune disorders and sensitivities, you’ve probably tried a myriad of treatments just trying to gain control of your life. Clearing the Way to Health and Wellness presents the Ellen Cutler Method (ECM), an innovative technique that offers hope for those for whom other treatments have failed. It provides an empowering new explanation of allergies and sensitivities as the cause of chronic illness, as well as a groundbreaking approach to overcoming them. Allergies and sensitivities can be reduced or eliminated, not miraculously and instantaneously, but inevitably and permanently. With contributions from Dr. Richard Tunkel, Dr. Ellen Cutler outlines the relationships among allergies, sensitivities, and chronic health and autoimmune disorders, guiding both patients and health-care practitioners in identifying and eliminating sensitivities that trigger symptoms. Case studies and personal stories illustrate how this powerful new approach has ended the suffering for thousands of all ages without the use of drugs.

This report describes the final development and validation of an integrated three-tier system for assessing drivers degrees of driving wellness (degree of freedom from driving-relevant functional limitations) and driving fitness (degree to which a driver compensates for any such limitations while actually driving). Both driving wellness and driving fitness are assessed in a driving-centered manner. Assessment tools recommended for use in each tier are described, as is the selection of two decision points (cutpoints) which separate drivers into three categories: pass ('driving-well'), 'somewhat functionally limited', and 'extremely functionally limited.' Compared to elder renewal license applicants who were assessed as somewhat functionally limited, elder renewals assessed as extremely functionally limited were more likely to fail a structured road test, but less likely to have been crash involved in the last three years. Reasons for this apparent paradox, in which more functionally limited drivers have fewer crashes, are addressed in the report. The report describes in detail the flow of renewal license applicants through the three-tier assessment system and makes numerous recommendations, including that the three-tier assessment system be adopted on a pilot basis for further evaluation.

Public Health and the US Military is a cultural history of the US Army Medical Department focusing on its accomplishments and organization coincident with the creation of modern public health in the Progressive Era. A period of tremendous social change, this time bore witness to the creation of an ideology of public health that influences public policy even today. The US Army Medical Department exerted tremendous influence on the methods adopted by the nation’s leading civilian public health figures and agencies at the turn of the twentieth century. Public Health and the US Military also examines the challenges faced by military physicians struggling to win recognition and legitimacy as expert peers by other Army officers and within the civilian sphere. Following the experience of typhoid fever outbreaks in the volunteer camps during the Spanish-American War, and the success of uniformed researchers and sanitarians in confronting yellow fever and hookworm disease in Cuba and Puerto Rico, the Medical Department’s influence and reputation grew in the decades before the First World War. Under the direction of sanitary-minded medical officers, the Army Medical Department instituted critical public health reforms at home and abroad, and developed a model of sanitary tactics for wartime mobilization that would face its most critical test in 1917. The first large conceptual overview of the role of the US Army Medical Department in American society during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this book details the culture and quest for legitimacy of an institution dedicated to promoting public health and scientific medicine.

“An interactive and empowering book” to help African American men and women create a new vision of better health and navigate the health care system (BET.com). According to the federal Office of Minority Health, African Americans “are affected by serious diseases and health conditions at far greater rates than other Americans.” In fact, African Americans suffer an estimated 85,000 excess deaths every year from diseases we know how to prevent: heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes. In this important and accessible book, Dr. Michelle Gourdine provides African Americans with the knowledge and guidance they need to take charge of their wellbeing. Reclaiming Our Health begins with an overview of the primary health concerns facing African Americans and explains who is at greatest risk of illness. Expanding on her career and life experiences as an African American physician, Dr. Gourdine presents key insights into the ways African American culture shapes health choices—how beliefs, traditions, and values can influence eating choices, exercise habits, and even the decision to seek medical attention. She translates extensive research into practical information and presents readers with concrete steps for achieving a healthier lifestyle, as well as strategies for navigating the health-care system. This interactive guide with illustrations is a vital resource for every African American on how to live a healthier and more empowered life, and an indispensable handbook for health-care providers, policy makers, and others working to close the health gap among people of color. Says Gourdine, “I wrote this book to empower our community to solve our own health problems and save our own lives.”
