Notes from the Dittlinger
Books offer healthy alternatives
By CAROL BISSETT
Special to the Herald-Zeitung
One of library patrons’ most intense areas of interest is health, particularly alternative or natural health remedies. Books on these topics rarely stay on the shelves here. Some new titles intended to boost your health are:
■ “Strong Women Stay Young” (Miriam Nelson) — Nelson’s research has shown that strength training improves bone density, balance, energy and weight control. This book presents a program based on a graduated schedule of weightlifting exercise that help prevent osteoporosis in women.
■ “The Save Your Heart Wine Guide” (Frank Jones) — Jones examines current research backing up the claim of positive effects from red wine consumption on health.
Once you’ve read the many health benefits of drinking one to two glasses of Burgundy daily, you’ll never drink the blancs again!
Other titles of interest:
■ “Healing Teas: How to Prepare and Use Teas to Maximize Your Health” (Marie Antol)
■ “Nature’s Cures: From Acupressure and Aromatherapy to Walking and Yoga: the Ultimate Guide to the Best Scientifically Proven, Drug-Free Healing Methods” (Michael Castleman)
■ “Mastering the Zone: the Next Step in Achieving Superhealth and Permanent Fat Loss” (Barry Sears)
■ “The Arthritis Cure: the Medical Miracle that Can Halt, Reverse and May Even Cure Osteoarthritis” (Jason Theodosakis)
