Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Low mood and depression are endemic, and on the increase, and the recession has further fuelled the need for the practical, down-to-earth advice provided in THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR.
Written by leading nutrition expert and mental health specialist Patrick Holford, it reveals highly effective methods to make a difference to how you feel - without the need for medical drugs. It includes lifestyle and life management techniques, as well as revealing the right foods to eat, and those to avoid, to help improve your mood dramatically.
This accessible approach is supported by substantial research, and backed up by poignant and motivating case histories. This includes those with major depression who failed to get better with conventional approaches and recovered completely on Holford's regime. The book is supported by further in-depth analysis relating to mood and diet taken from Holford's 100% Health survey, which was completed by over 55,000 people.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

One thing that did annoy me was Holford's assertion that there is no vegetarian source of EPA. This suggests slighly sloppy research as a simple internet search would have proved otherwise. Fish get their EPA from microalgae, and in this day and age people can easily do the same. Google brings up plenty of good sources.
Otherwise a great book if you want to take charge of your own health, well worth a read.
I found this letter from Mt Holford's a group of his peers in South Africa who were concerned about his lack of evidence for his statements and thought it was worth sharing.
Mr. Ivan Saltzman
CEO, Dis-Chem Pharmacies
25 March 2011
Dear Mr. Saltzman
OPEN LETTER: WHY IS DIS-CHEM PROMOTING PATRICK HOLFORD?
It has come to our attention that between 18 February and 1 March Dis-Chem hosted the South African leg of Patrick Holford's Feel Good Factor Roadshow.
Concerns about Mr. Holford's credibility as a spokesperson on health issues have been raised publicly on many occasions. Here are just a few examples. Our sources are a statement by the Coalition Against Fraudulent Claims About Medicines on 1 March 2007 ([...]) and the website Holford Watch ([...]):
Mr Holford wrote that "AZT, the first prescribable anti-HIV drug, is potentially harmful and proving less effective than vitamin C". This is false. At best vitamin supplementation in some groups of people might marginally slow progression from HIV infection to AIDS; the evidence is conflicting. But well conducted clinical trials show unequivocally that combination antiretroviral treatments, including AZT, restore the health of people with HIV.
Mr Holford claimed that it was highly likely that vitamin C would be effective against avian influenza if the dose was high enough. There is no evidence to support this claim.
Mr Holford claims that high-dose vitamin C and D supplementation reduces the risk of cancer. There is no evidence for this. On the contrary, a very large Cochrane review of vitamin C supplementation found no evidence of benefit.
As explained on Holford Watch, "Holford has actually recommended a range of healthcare modalities that do not just lack any good evidence of efficacy, but - given our current understanding of the laws of physics - lack any feasible mechanism of action. For example, he has promoted health dowsing and applied kinesiology; he has written positively about homoeopathic alternatives to vaccination and has promoted and sold theQLink pendant."
Mr. Holford works for a supplement pill company called Biocare and is Chief Executive of Food for the Brain, a charity funded by a number of supplement pill companies. Given his vested interests in selling vitamin supplements his advice is unlikely to be independent and credible.
Mr. Holford does not have any accredited degree-level or postgraduate degree-level qualifications in nutrition. His only university qualification is a BSc in Psychology from York. This is inconsistent with him promoting himself as a highly qualified expert in the field of nutrition.
Consumers place their trust in pharmacies such as Dis-Chem to provide them with reliable healthcare recommendations and evidence-based treatments. Pharmacists are understood to be credible healthcare professionals, whose recommendations are well substantiated. Given that many people rely on pharmacies to provide them with credible healthcare advice and rigorously tested medication, it is important that pharmacies live up to these expectations.
We therefore ask you if inviting Mr Holford to speak on a Dis-Chem platform is consistent with providing evidence-based information to the clients of Dis-Chem pharmacies?
