Defeat High Blood Sugar — Naturally! (2013)
More than 100 million Americans struggle with high blood sugar (prediabetes and diabetes) — which increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, kidney failure, vision loss and many other severe health problems. The bad news: research shows that a lot of the drugs used to control blood sugar can cause severe health problems, like heart disease and cancer. The good news: this book features 24, all-natural super-supplements and super-foods for preventing and treating high blood sugar problems and its complications; and these natural remedies often work just as well as (or even better than) drugs! Did you know that a little vinegar with a meal can stop the post-meal spikes of blood sugar that rip apart your arteries? Or that a special formulation of the herb gymnema can lower fasting blood sugar levels by up to 100 points, virtually curing type 2 diabetes? (Formulated by two scientists from India, it’s the most powerful form of the herb on the market.) Based on thousands of scientific studies and interviews with more than 60 doctors and other health professionals, I think Defeat High Blood Sugar — Naturally! is a unique resource for people wanting new, effective, simple-to-use ideas for preventing, controlling or even reversing prediabetes and diabetes. The “Buy Now” button takes you to my publisher’s promotional website, which provides much more info about the book, instant ordering — and a free gift! (The gift is a booklet I wrote that features laughter, yoga and other non-supplement, non-food methods to control blood sugar. It’s titled 8 Weird Ways to Lower Your Blood Sugar — That Really Work.) Bottom line: I think you’ll love this new book — and your free gift.
The Every Other Day Diet (2013)
I wrote this book with Krista Varady, PhD, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois-Chicago, and the world’s leading scientific researcher on losing weight through intermittent fasting — the hottest trend in weight loss. Dr. Varady has conducted seven clinical trials on her approach (alternate-day modified fasting), including a three-year trial funded by the National Institutes of Health. The book features her science-proven weight-loss and weight-maintenance plans, along with 80 delicious recipes. I think every-other-day dieting is the easiest way to lose weight. You eat 500 calories one day (Diet Day) and whatever you want and all you want the next day (Feast Day), alternating the two days. There’s no long-term dietary deprivation. No complex rules. No forbidden foods. And hundreds of every-other-day dieters — people who’ve lost anywhere from 10 to 100 pounds, and kept it off — say it’s the best diet plan they’ve ever followed. If you want to lose weight, I hope you give The Every-Other-Day Diet a try.
Healing Spices (2011)
Check out the positive amazon.com reviews on this title and you’ll see that readers are pretty much unanimous in declaring there’s no other book like it—and I think they’re right! It’s the only book to talk about the healing properties of 80 spices…their history in world and culinary culture…and how to cook with them. Plus, it’s physically a beautiful book. Written by Bharat Aggarwal, MD, head of the Department of Experimental Therapeutics at MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Debora Yost, a longtime colleague, and health and cooking writer extraordinaire, this book is a must for anyone interested in spices and their healing power. I edited the book, and it was produced by Good For You Books, my book packaging company.
Real Cause, Real Cure (2012, paperback)
I first met the fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome guru, Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, when I interviewed him on those topics for my natural health classic, Alternative Cures. Jacob’s bestseller From Fatigued To Fantastic! looks at the underlying causes of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. A few years ago, I suggested to Jacob that we do a book together that looked at the real, underlying causes of all diseases—and their real cures. He agreed—and the rest is natural healing history. To my mind, Jacob is one of the top natural doctors in the U.S.—and this new book is his magnum opus of natural healing!
Alternative Cures (2000, hardcover; 2003 trade paperback; 2008 mass market)
The Most Effective Natural Home Remedies for 160 Health Problems More than 1.5 million copies sold!
To write Alternative Cures, I interviewed more than 700 clinicians—natural-minded MDs, naturopaths, nutritionists, herbalists, yoga therapists and others—to find out their best tips and techniques to prevent, control and reverse more than 160 health conditions, from Acne and Allergies to Wrinkles and Water Retention. The result was a natural health classic that has now sold more than 1.5 million copies in the U.S. and worldwide. “A must for everyone’s home library,” said Earl Mindell, PhD, when the book was first published in 2000—and over the next decade, more than a million U.S. households agreed! The book is now available at Rite-Aid, Walgreens, CVS and similar outlets in an inexpensive mass market edition.

The Nitric Oxide Solution (2010)
I first met my co-author Nathan Bryan, PhD, when I interviewed him about stunning new research showing that herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine were uniquely rich in their capacity to generate nitric oxide—the heart-protecting compound that earned a Nobel Prize for its discoverer. A year or so later, Dr. Bryan and his colleague Janet Zand, OMD, asked me to co-author a book on nitric oxide, as educational support for their unique nitric-oxide boosting supplement, NEO40. I was happy to oblige, because boosting NO is key to lowering high blood pressure, keeping your arteries young and flexible, and reducing your risk of heart and stroke—the #1 and #3 killers of Americans.
The Natural Fat-Loss Pharmacy (2007)
Drug-Free Remedies to Help You Safely Lose Weight, Shed Fat, Firm Up, and Feel Great
I wrote this book with top food supplement researcher Harry Preuss, MD, a professor at Georgetown Medical Center. The book covers more than a dozen of the most effective weight-loss aids, from green tea extract to CLA. It also includes great chapters on diet and exercise. “You can trust the expertise of Dr. Preuss and Bill Gottlieb,” says Jean Carper, bestseller author of Stop Aging Now! “A fascinating, in-depth guide to natural weight aids,” says Julia Ross, author of The Diet Cure. “A brilliant job,” says Stephen Sinatra, MD. “Enjoyable, educational and entertaining,” says a professor from the Yale School of Medicine. To my mind, it’s the only science-based, reliable guide to weight-loss supplements.
Maximum Manhood (2012)
Sexual Healing Secrets and Anti-Aging Breakthroughs From the World’s Greatest Men’s Health Doctors
I’ve been writing about health for more than 30 years, and I’m a man in his 50s, so you’d think I would know everything there is to know about TESTOSTERONE, the quintessential male hormone. But I didn’t. I didn’t know that levels of testosterone start to drop at age 30, and keep on dropping, year after year, leaving a lot of older guys drained and depleted, and feeling like a shadow of their youthful selves. I didn’t know those lower levels of testosterone are linked to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. I also didn’t know that boosting testosterone (either with the hormone itself, or with supplements and lifestyle) could make so much of a difference for guys 40 and older—that extra testosterone could banish fatigue and fill you with energy…rejuvenate memory and concentration…help shed fat and build muscle…dispel depression and brighten mood…and turn apathy into enthusiasm and confusion into confidence. Well, now I DO know about the healing power of testosterone—because I read hundreds of scientific studies and talked to more than 70 top experts in men’s health—and I put everything I learned into this new book. Along with seven chapters on understanding and boosting testosterone, you’ll also learn natural ways to achieve erectile satisfaction or reverse ED, and natural ways to prevent or reverse prostate problems of all kinds.
“You did a SUPERB job on the book. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. You will bless many men and their partners and families with it.”
— Dr. Chris Meletis, ND
Speed Healing (2009)
My friends at Bottom Line Books called me one day to ask if I would consider writing a book based on a 200-word concept that had tested well in their marketing research: Speed Healing, the fastest way to solve health problems. I liked the idea, and enthusiastically went to work, reading hundreds of scientific studies and interviewing more than 400 researchers and health practitioners, to find the quickest way to prevent or reverse dozens of common diseases.
Breakthroughs in Drug-Free Healing (2008)
My friend Jim Healthy told me that he thought this book was even better than my natural healing classic, Alternative Cures. (And he should know: he wrote direct response advertising copy for both books!) To write it, I spent nearly a year researching in the database of the National Institutes of Health to find the absolutely best and latest scientific studies on natural healing—for arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and many other health problems. (For example, my file for heart disease included 150 different types of natural remedies, with dozens of studies in each!) The result is described in the sub-title: Thousands of the best science-proven natural remedies to cure, cure and prevent common ailments and serious conditions. There’s no other book like it.
• 17 chapters • Over 450 pages • Hundreds of Medical Conditions • 1,061 Proven Remedies • All Human Clinical Studies • The Latest Findings.
Bottom Line’s Breakthroughs in Natural Healing, 2012
Every year, I keep up with the latest scientific research in non-drug approaches to health and healing—and then report what I consider to be the top 100 studies, in terms of practical benefits to my readers. I interview the researcher who conducted the study. And I interview natural-minded clinicians for practical advice about the implications of the study. The result is an utterly unique yearly update of natural healing—a must-have book for anyone interested in the drugless approach to health.
Bottom Line’s Breakthroughs in Natural Healing, 2011
This was the first edition of the annual product that I write for my wonderful publisher, Bottom Line Books. (They’re like family to me.) Like the newer 2012 edition described above, it includes 100 reports on the latest and greatest scientific findings in non-drug approaches to health and healing—findings that are hardly outdated by being a little more than a year old! In other words, it’s a treasure trove of ideas for natural healing, backed by top-level scientific research and clinical expertise.
The DERMAdoctor Skinstruction Manual (2005)
The Smart Guide To Healthy, Beautiful Skin and Looking Good At Any Age
I first interviewed Audrey Kunin, MD, for a story in Men’s Health magazine on male hair problems. After the interview, I asked her if she had ever considered writing a book—and she definitely had! Working from the wonderful materials she had already written for her website www.dermadoctor.com, we put together this superb guide to skin problems.
The Calcium Key (2004)
The Revolutionary Diet Discovery That Will Help You Lose Weight Faster
As with many of my collaborations, I first met my co-author (Michael Zemel, PhD, director of the Department of Nutrition at the University of Tennessee) during an interview, in this case for an article on milk and health for Self magazine. I was so intrigued by his findings on dairy intake and weight loss, that I asked him if he wanted to do a book on the subject—he did; we did; and The Calcium Key was the result. If you’re a dairy lover (speaking personally, I adore raw organic cheese!), this book is for you.
