Sygdom og medicin

  • Bone broth af Sandra Pugliese
    - Den kraftfulde drik, der nærer, opbygger og hele
    af Sandra Pugliese, Anna Iben Hollensberg & Charlotte Gylling Mortensen

    Din mormor ved det helt sikkert, og hendes mormor vidste det uden tvivl. Suppe kogt på knogler og ben kan noget helt unikt i forhold til at forebygge og helbrede sygdom, og derudover er det en af naturens allerbedste skønhedseliksirer.Bone broth indeholder en unik kombination af letoptagelige næringsstoffer som aminosyrer, mineraler og glucosaminer, der ud over at styrke bindevæv som knogler, negle og hud samt immunforsvar også kan bruges ved cancer, autoimmune sygdomme, allergier, stress og tarmsygdomme.Bone broth kan derved noget, som individuelle kosttilskud aldrig vil kunne – den leverer en komplet pakke af næringsstoffer, som hjælper med til at holde dig sund, rask, stærk og smuk livet igennem.Det handler om oldgammel kulinarisk visdom, som det 20. århundrede fik os til at glemme i Vesten – andre kulturer, fx i Kina og Japan, anerkender stadig bone broths unikke og nærende egenskaber.Denne lille bog er en kvikguide til enkle, smagfulde opskrifter, de mange helbredssfordele ved bone broth og videnskaben bag. Dertil kommer en indføring i begrebet ‘functional foods’, der handler om at bruge mad som medicin.Bogserien: Functional foodsFunctional foods er et begreb, der bruges om mange typer fødevarer. I denne nye serie af bøger anvender vi begrebet i betydningen af naturlige fødevarer – dvs. rene, oprindelige og uspolerede af industriel håndtering – som har kendte, sundhedsfremmende egenskaber. Nogle fødevarer har nemlig så ­tydelige ekstra medicinske egenskaber, at vi bevidst bruger dem terapeutisk, dvs. vi ­bruger maden som medicin.I serien er valgt nogle af de fødevarer, som ikke er så almindelige i den nutidige danske kogetradition, og bøgerne vil byde på lettilgængelige, familievenlige opskrifter, som kan benyttes igen og igen. En slags ‘Karolines Køkken’ med fokus på funktionelle fødevarer, som alle kan bruge.Bone broth er den første i rækken af bøger om functional foods. Kommende emner i serien: Gurkemeje, Kokos og Probiotika & prebiotika.Om forfatterenSandra Pugliese er autodidakt kok og kogebogsforfatter. Hun har udgivet en lang række kogebøger, der alle har smag, sanselighed og sundhed i højsædet. Sandra har i ­mange år arbejde med mad som medicin, og hendes holistiske tilgang til mad og sundhed har stor betydning i kreationsfasen omkring opskrifterne til denne bogserie. Hun kurerer hellere en halsbetændelse med fx timiante, ingefær og koldslynget honning end med en recept fra lægen, og hun brænder for at vise sine læsere, hvilke små mirakler de rette råvarer kan gøre for både krop og sind.Anna Iben Hollensberg er speciallæge i almen medicin og uddannet heilpraktiker i tysk naturmedicinsk metode. Efteruddannet i komplementær og holistisk medicin i især Schweiz, Tyskland og USA og i 2016 certificeret Functional Medicine Graduate, som den første danske læge. Hun driver en integreret medicinsk privatklinik i Silkeborg med fokus på orthomolekylær og functional medicine og er desuden faglig ansvarlig på Heilpraktikerskolen, fagunderviser og en efterspurgt foredragsholder.Charlotte Gylling Mortensen er cand.scient i klinisk ernæring. Hun blev i 2016 certificeret i Functionel Medicine Graduate som den første ernæringsfaglige i Danmark og arbejder på Institut for Ortomolekylær Medicin (IOM) i Lyngby. Hendes interesse for ernæring begyndte, da hun arbejdede for FN’s Verdens­fødevareprogram i Egypten i 1990’erne. Hun har desuden en MSc i journalistik fra University of Wisconsin, USA.Bogens billeder er fotograferet af Thomas Hergaard.

  • VED MOR GODT, JEG ER DEMENT? af Karen  Zubari Spar 18%
    af Karen Zubari

    Kirstens historie er ikke enestående i dagens Danmark, men den er heller ikke for tøsedrenge.Efter et hårdt liv bliver hun en dag indlagt og som 58-årig diagnosticeret med Alzheimers. Vi følger familiens dilemma, da Kirstens mand selv insisterer på at passe hende, men dør og efterlader hende hjælpeløs. Vi er med hende på den travle hospitalsafdeling, græder med hende, da hun dumper i urskivetesten, prøver at holde tungen lige i munden, da hun som en kastebold bliver sendt rundt i den kommunale visitationsjungle, oplever Arbejde Adlers perle af en aflastningsafdeling midt på Nørrebro og ånder lettet op, da hun med plyssofa, seng og teaktræskommode indtager den længe ventede plejehjemsplads på Lolland.Kirsten ville gerne selv have fortalt historien, men mistede ret hurtigt evnen til at skrive. Det faldt derfor i forfatterens lod, som Kirstens søster, at viderebringe hendes skæbne.Uddrag af bogen”Ved mor godt, jeg er dement?”Jeg svarer, at det ved mor godt, og derfor er mor også glad for, at hun er her, hvor der er folk, der kan hjælpe, når der er noget, hun ikke lige kan huske.”Jamen er der andre i familien, der er blevet demente?”Så snakker vi lidt om far og moster, som begge var gamle, da de fik det, og det var også på en lidt anden måde. Der er også rigtig mange, der er demente, det er nærmest blevet moderne, fortæller jeg hende. Vi bliver enige om, at det meget har at gøre med, hvordan man ta’r det. Lidt spøgefuldt kan hun finde på at sige, at det her demens, det kan altså ikke anbefales. Første gang, den røg af panden, tænkte jeg: Tak for kaffe!Om forfatterenKaren Zubari (f. 1953) skriver visetekster og har udgivet digtsamlingerne Digte fra en blondekant og Ingen anemoner er så blå.

  • Slip legen løs af Arne Nielsson
    - - og skab energi på job og privat
    af Arne Nielsson, Bjarne Lellek & Nils Finderup

    EFTER MANGE ÅR MED STIGENDE KONTROL ER DET PÅ TIDE, VI ALLE SKIFTER FOKUS.Mange savner legen i livet – den, der holder os oppe, når udfordringerne og presset vokser. Den leg, der fyldte vores barndom, vores skolegang, de første jobs, forelskelsen og familietiden med energi og optimisme.I denne bog argumenterer coach ARNE NIELSSON og coach/psykolog BJARNE LELLEK for, at legen i de senere år er blevet prioriteret ned på både jobbet, i skolen, i fritiden og i familien. Vi er nemlig efter udenlandsk mønster begyndt at fokusere på effektivitet og besparelser med indførelse af begreber som LEAN-rutiner og PISA-test. Resultatet er ifølge de to forfattere, at vi danskere oplever stigende kontrol samt mindre tillid til os og vores specielle evner til at tænke selvstændigt, kreativt og fleksibelt med såvel god dømmekraft som følelsesmæssig intelligens. Netop disse evner bliver der ellers rigt brug for at udvikle i den nærmeste fremtid, når nye arbejdsgange og teknologier vil ændre alles hverdag. Leg rummer kraften til at genskabe arbejdsglæde, give større plus på bundlinjen, sikre trivsel, styrke relationer og øge kreativiteten – også i den fritid, der er blevet mindre af med den øgede kontrol. Leg kan løse op for fastlåste roller, affektstorme, dårlige mønstre og uenigheder. Vi skal derfor ville legen, tage ansvar for den, turde udvikle os med den samt ikke mindst træne den med øvelser og handling, som denne bog giver masser af anvisninger til.

  • Pathophysiology of Headaches
    - From Molecule to Man
     

    This book provides a detailed overview of the current state of knowledge regarding the pathophysiology of both primary headaches - migraine, tension-type headache (TTH), and cluster headache - and the very important and frequent type of secondary headache, medication overuse headache (MOH). After an introductory chapter describing relevant neuroanatomy and vascular anatomy, the evidence gained from animal models regarding the pathophysiology of migraine and the other primary headaches is reviewed. Knowledge of the genetic component in the different types of headache is then examined with reference to recent evidence, for example regarding the implication of the trigeminovascular system and cortical spreading depression in migraine. Detailed information is provided on insights into primary headaches from imaging studies, including functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography and on their neurophysiology and biochemistry. A further series of important chapters describe present knowledge of the pathophysiology of each specific type of headache and consider future directions. Written by acknowledged experts in their fields from Europe and the United States, clinicians and students will find Pathophysiology of Headaches to be an excellent source of up-to-date information on why patients experience headaches. In addition, it will be of value for pain researchers investigating the underlying mechanisms of headache.

  • Afhængighed af Mary O'Malley Spar 17%
    - Din skjulte gave
    af Mary O'Malley

    De fleste af os har en eller anden form for afhængighed – af sukker, tv, arbejde, motion, shopping, bekymringer, mad, cigaretter, alkohol, stoffer eller andet. Vores instinktive reaktion er ofte, at vi forsøger at bekæmpe og kontrollere afhængigheden, men som regel vender den tilbage – eller der udvikles en ny type afhængighed, som det f.eks. er tilfældet med eksrygere, der erstatter deres cigaretter med mad.Mary O'Malley vælger imidlertid en helt anden tilgang: Afhængighed kan betragtes som en skjult gave, en læremester, der kan vise vejen mod større accept og selvforståelse. Ved at holde op med at bekæmpe det, vi gerne vil ændre, og i stedet indtage en nysgerrig, undersøgende og frem for alt medfølende holdning til afhængigheden, bliver det muligt at lytte til denne del af os selv, der forsøger at kommunikere et vigtigt og positivt budskab. AFHÆNGIGHED – DIN SKJULTE GAVE er en indsigtsfuld selvhjælpsbog med mange praktiske øvelser og enkle teknikker, der viser, hvordan man kan finde fred med sin afhængighed og erstatte håbløshed og kamp med glæde og velvære. Mary O'Malley har i mange år arbejdet som terapeut, underviser og foredragsholder. Hun skriver dels ud fra sit professionelle virke og dels fra sine personlige erfaringer med spiseforstyrrelser.

  • Skjulte lidelser af Søren Frølich
    - Om whiplash, kroniske smerter, fibromyalgi med mere
    af Søren Frølich, Poul Videbech, Jesper Mogensen, mfl.

    Om whiplash, kroniske smerter, fibromyalgi med mere.Gennem de seneste mere end 100 år har der været lidelser, der hverken har kunnet forklares eller findes en entydig behandling til. Denne bog ser de skjulte lidelser i forskellige perspektiver – ud fra ønsket om at beskrive disse lidelsers mangesidede faktorer.Hensigten med bogen er at skabe en større forståelse og forhåbentlig også større tolerance i forhold til dem, der rammes af de skjulte lidelser, så man får mulighed for at kunne hjælpe bedst muligt. En central pointe i bogen er, at vi må holde op med at forveksle subjektive lidelser med suspekte lidelser i ydmyghed overfor alt det, vi ikke ved.Bogens temaer er valgt ud fra ønsket om at videreformidle viden til sundhedspersonale, behandlere, sagsbehandlere, jurister, pårørende til personer med disse lidelser og ikke mindst de ramte selv.Se indholdsfortegnelse og udvidet ordforklaringsliste.Forord af Susan Schlüter og indledning af Vibeke Søndergaard.

    af Henriette Kinch

    ”Liv er i 20’erne og har anoreksi. Forfatteren Henriette Kinch har selv lidt af anoreksi, og det er en ægtefølt og vedkommende beretning, hun fortæller. Sproget er enkelt og virkningsfuldt. En brugsbog i fiktionsform. En bog til større forståelse af sygdommens mekanismer.” – Lektørudtalelse til bibliotekerneNår Liv ser på sig selv, ser hun en pige, der er fed. Hele verden må lægge mærke til hendes ulækre deller. Men hendes familie og venner er bekymrede over, hvor tynd hun er, at hun spiser så lidt og motioner hele tiden. Liv har anoreksi. Men hun ved det ikke. Hun føler, at ingen forstår hende, og hun isolerer sig. Hele tiden må hun tælle kalorier, planlægge hvad hun spiser, veje sig. Det tager al hendes energi, der er ikke overskud til et socialt liv. På et tidspunkt bryder det sammen, og Liv kommer til psykolog. Men det får hende ikke til at erkende sin sygdom. Til sidst vejer hun 38 kilo og den 170 cm høje pige indlægges på psykiatrisk afdeling. Hele tiden bliver der holdt øje med hende, det er et helvede. En ny psykolog kommer Liv til hjælp. Sammen finder de frem til den følelsesmæssige knude, der er årsag til det hele. Liv mærker sammenhængen og føler, der måske er lys forude. Hun kæmper med sig selv og sine indre stemmer for at tage imod hjælpen og tillade sig selv at tage lidt på i vægt. Indlæggelsen og terapien er to skridt frem og et tilbage, men langsomt går det fremad. Da hun kommer hjem, er det med håb for fremtiden. Og en ny kæreste i horisonten.Henriette Kinch, født i 1985 i Højbjerg i Århus. Hun startede på hf, men gennemførte ikke, blandt andet på grund af flere indlæggelser med anoreksi.
