Discover Mayo Clinic’s first-ever weight-loss diet, and the last diet you’ll ever need! Bogus “Mayo Clinic diets”—based on everything from cabbage soup to grapefruit to bacon—have been circulating for decades. These diets have no connection to Mayo Clinic, but their popularity told us that people are hungry for a diet based on Mayo’s research and clinical experience. So, here it is— for real—The Mayo Clinic Diet. In our work with literally thousands of patients every week over many years, we’ve identified the leading habits of people who maintain a healthy weight, and the habits of those who don’t. We’ve boiled this research down to five simple habits to help you take off the extra weight—and five habits to break so that you can keep it from coming back. Plus, we’ve made it easy. You don’t have to sit down and read The Mayo Clinic Diet cover to cover. Instead, use this step-by-step program to lose weight the same way you gained it—one day at a time. Because what works is keeping it simple! • In Part 1—“Lose It!” is a two-week quick start for losing 6 to 10 pounds in a safe and healthy way. That’s real results, real fast! • In Part 2—“Live It!” helps you continue losing 1 to 2 pounds a week until you reach your goal. Then, learn to maintain your healthy weight for life. • In Part 3—“All the Extra Stuff!” contains meal planners, recipes, tips on overcoming challenges and much more to help you along the way. The Mayo Clinic Diet puts you in charge of reshaping your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. This book offers a plan for a sustainable lifestyle, not just a diet. Discover better health through better weight management by following The Mayo Clinic Diet.

Many common health problems can be treated with simple remedies you can do at home. Even if the steps you take don't cure the problem, they can relieve symptoms and allow you to go about your daily life, or at least help you until you're able to see a doctor. Some remedies, such as changing your diet to deal with heartburn or adapting your home environment to cope with chronic pain, may seem like common sense. You may have questions about when to apply heat or cold to injuries, what helps relieve the itch of an insect bite, or whether certain herbs, vitamins or minerals are really effective against the common cold or insomnia. You'll find these answers and more in Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies. In situations involving your health or the health of your family, the same questions typically arise: What actions can I take that are immediate, safe and effective? When should I contact my doctor? What symptoms signal an emergency? Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies clearly defines these questions with regard to your health concerns and guides you to choose the appropriate and most effective response.

Whether you are facing a cancer diagnosis and the challenges of treatment, or wish to prevent the disease if you’re at high risk, this book brings you the most accurate, reliable and up-to-date information available. You’ll discover a story rich in hope, with accounts of women who’ve successfully confronted this difficult disease.

In this thorough book, Mayo brings you critical knowledge in many key facets of breast cancer. • Prevention—What can you do to decrease your risk of getting breast cancer? While there’s still no guaranteed way to prevent it, several lifestyle factors can be modified to reduce your risk, especially if you are in a high-risk category. • Treatment—After diagnosis comes a flurry of questions: “Now what?” “How do I deal with this?” “Do I have options?” “What’s my prognosis?” The good news is that breast cancer is now considered a highly treatable disease with good results. Survival rates keep increasing. The book reviews the full range of treatment options, and the pros and cons of each. • Care and Coping—Life goes on after diagnosis. Our doctors share their best options for dealing with feelings and emotions ... for coping with treatment side effects ... for women who want to consider complementary therapies. A separate chapter offers helpful guidance to the patient’s partner. • Living With Hope—It bears repeating: Breast cancer is highly treatable. You have every reason to live with hope. This book offers key support for every woman. The book is a tribute to many, especially the extraordinary women who’ve taught us about breast cancer. Each has added to our knowledge of the disease, and advanced your ability to respond to any diagnosis or risk.
