Présentation de l'éditeur

Neurosurgeon and wildly controversial Paleo blogger Dr. Jack Kruse gives us his first book, Epi-paleo Rx: The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health. Kruse, who used his findings to lose 140 pounds and pack on muscle, takes the reader through his prescriptions for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, autoimmunity, brain health, and aging. The material weaves together surprises from our Ice Age origins with the new science of epigenetics, or the effect of diet and environment on gene expression.

A champion of “biohacking,” the art of tinkering with one’s own biology, Kruse pounces on his own profession’s ineptness when it comes to chronic conditions and urges readers to take health care into their own hands. He discusses which labs to order and why, why your doctor is obligated to write you a prescription you don’t need, the vital roles daylight and darkness play in metabolism, and the optimal diet for different stages of health and different times of year.

Perhaps Kruse’s more fascinating contributions to Paleo literature are his findings on cold therapy—the effect of cold environments, immersion in cold water, and ice pack therapy on disease reversal, pain, and optimal living. Kruse explains how our origins as cold-adapted mammals hold the key to disease reversal, using a shocking biohack to prove his theory.

The Epi-paleo Rx is the result of Kruse’s abundant research and clinical application in his practice as a neurosurgeon. Kruse questions conventional wisdom about human metabolism and chronic disease, arguing science has incomplete information when it comes to insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity, and their related illnesses. By examining the human body through the prism of our early beginnings and the science of epigenetics, we find each of us already possesses the “owner’s manual” to reverse disease and live optimally.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's an Amazing Compendium of Thought 16 avril 2013
Par Bhavesh K. Patel - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It takes an incredible amount of courage to go back to the basics of human biochemistry and physiology to try and understand exactly how and why the body works the way it does. To further bridge the gap from understanding to therapy is an even greater step.

Dr. Kruse has done exactly that with this book. It's clear that he has read EVERYTHING. It is clear that he has kept an open mind, synthesizing together a framework built from traditional medical models and the state-of-the-art in thinking about humans as evolutionary beings. It is clear that his only objective is to provide the truth and advance understanding further.

As a physician, many times I came to the limits of what conventional medicine had to offer. Unfortunately, in today's medical world, most doctors who hit that limit stop searching for answers. I'm sure many patients have been told by their doctors that "there's nothing else to do." It's frustrating and it's a disservice.

Dr. Kruse blew past those limits and leveraged his experience, knowledge and quest for unity to create this book. He has just made available an amazing tome of medical information and has put it together in a way that is educational and empowering. It's really decades of work.

Personally, I'm very familiar with many of these topics -- and there was still much for me to learn from this book. One reviewer states that there is nothing new in this book and that everything can be found elsewhere. That's not exactly true. But even if it were, no one has put it together like this.

Sure, you might be able to read about all this by scouring the literature and the web, but to synthesize these very complex -- and sometimes conflicting -- topics in an understandable thesis would take you years.

This book is well worth it's price and I'm sure that any reader, layperson or someone with an advanced degree, will benefit from having read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book has changed my life forever 17 mai 2013
Par Nick - Publié sur

This book is an amazing repository of priceless information for anyone concerned about any health issues. I have used this information to massively change my health direction in the last 18 months. I have been battling through Dr Kruse's blogs and working through the various strands of biology, medicine, chemistry, physics and electronics which approaches health from ground up. This book however is a godsend for anyone that just wants to get the big picture quickly and build understanding from the top down.

First Dr Kruse discusses where medicine is at which is quite horrifying, then he talks about the many types of testing available to the public and what they mean to an individual. It is scary to discover the chasm between science in last 10 years and what your ordinary GP understands of this. Almost nothing! The centre half of the book is devoted to the various disease types, what to test specifically and how to action these results. The last quarter of the book ties together many of these themes into one fascinating hypothesis of how mammals evolved and through the last 65 million years and how this affects us in a practical way now, including the amazing biological trick of Cold Thermogenesis.

This is the closest thing I have seen to a 'How aTo' manual for health in the 21st century, it is eye-opening, practical and positive. Dr Kruse is one of a kind, a Dr that has time to not only work through cutting edge science in many different fields but cares enough to share this information for almost nothing in return. I think his works, including this book are almost priceless and will be looked upon in the future as a seminal, ground changing, body of information.

How has this changed me? I am in my mid forties and have changed in 18 months from being overweight, tired, brain fogged and feeling pessimistic about my health future to being a healthy weight, clear and fast thinking, a strong as I have ever been and with as much energy as I had when I was sixteen. This rocked my world! I changed my diet, changed the timing of when I ate, changed my sleep patterns and got used to being in a bath full of ice, none of which was very hard. For a bit of effort I am a new person and I think that when you look through the reviews and forums you will see I am just one of many that has easily changed for the better.

I can't thank Dr Kruse enough, besides my parents and my immediate family no one has had a bigger positive influence on me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dr. Kruse's book at last! 2 avril 2013
Par S. Welch - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have been waiting for this book for so long, and it didn't disappoint! There were some surprises in it, though I have been following Dr. Kruse's website, with great results, for over a year. And I had to read the last chapter twice! He added a lot of new details will make quite a difference to one person in my family. It's good to have many of Dr. Kruse's ideas in one nice to read, accessible place. And once you know how the mind & body really work, you do better.

I feel like bookmarking one chapter to hand to this family member with osteoporosis, another chapter for another relative with diabetes, etc. The information is concise and actionable, yet it has enough background information to teach you why you need to change what you are doing or eating. I'm also going to purchase a copy for my family doctor, so he can understand me better, and perhaps others can benefit as well.

Thanks for publishing the paper edition!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a coherent voice from the medical field 26 mars 2013
Par Herbert Toll - Publié sur

Dr Jack Kruse is a rarity.

Not many people are able to think and reason in three-dimension and are able to connect the dots from so many different modalities order to lay out some heavy truths that have long been misread, pushed aside and covered up by conventional medicine.

In Man's search for answers to health problems, he has gone down so many misguided paths - cholesterol, salt, prescription drugs, low fat, artificial sugars, fluoride, preservatives, etc. - in an attempt to get people well. All too often, the efforts are too myopic and don't see what the unintended consequences are. Side effects, increased problems, and failed resolutions, all are the result of trying to shove a square peg into a hole they can't see is the wrong shape.

When one has a thirty-thousand foot view of the human condition, and has the ability to remember and relate proven, well-established tenets of bio-chemical truth, they can show us the way back to our natural state of being - a healthy Human. And perhaps beyond, but that's up to each of us, I suppose.

Dr. Kruse has that ability.

After searching for over 50 years for a pathway to better health free of political, economic, and social prejudices, I finally found many answers one day when a kind forum member suggested I check out his blog.

I've been healing ever since.
