Summary

In 1967, after a twin baby boy suffered a botched circumcision, his family agreed to a radical treatment that would alter his gender. The case would become one of the most famous in modern medicine—and a total failure. As Nature Made Him tells the extraordinary story of David Reimer, who, when finally informed of his medical history, made the decision to live as a male. A macabre tale of medical arrogance, it is first and foremost a human drama of one man's—and one family's—amazing survival in the face of terrible odds.

    The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast! 
    When it comes to weight loss, most people don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones—cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen—your body adjusts by increasingly raising your hormone levels and ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors. 
    Based on leading scientific research, The Hormone Reset Diet is her proven weight loss and energy program to reverse hormone resistance in just three weeks. It will help you:   Boost your metabolism and calorie burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors;   Increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors;   Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing cortisol). 
    For the last twenty years, this Harvard-MIT educated physician has helped thousands of women address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging, and illness. Going beyond her bestselling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

    What is bipolar disorder? Bipolar disorder also commonly referred to as the manic depressive disorder, is a brain illness that is associated with abnormal mood swings, activity and energy levels as well as the ability of the affected person to perform normal daily activities. It can range from the lows of depression to the highs of obsession. As a result of the depression one may lose pleasure or interest in a lot of the activities and end up hopeless or sad. Whereas your mood may swing into obsession one may fell full of energy or euphoric. The symptoms of this condition are severe, and are quite different from the normal mood swings you undergo through from time to time. These symptoms may result to poor performance in the work place, poor performance in school, suicide or damage your relationship. However, it is important to note that bipolar disease can be treated and those suffering from it may regain their normal productive lives. This condition is very common in early adults and late teens. Although some people develop early signs during their childhood many develop its signs late in their life. Symptoms of bipolar disorder People suffering from this disorder often experience abnormal severe emotional states periodically. One may experience a joyful period for sometimes and later the mood may change to a depression or an obsession period. Another common symptom is the severe changes in activity, behavior, sleep or energy levels that are associate with the mood swings. If you suffer from this condition you may experience periods of hopelessness, loss on pleasure and interest in different activities including sex. Other behavioral changes that are common include irritability, restlessness, poor concentration, poor memory; thinking about death, problems sleeping and one is easily distracted. Test For Bipolar Disorder The first step during test is a physical examination conducted by talking to a doctor, it involves an interview as well as laboratory tests. This disorder cannot be identified through a brain scan or a mere blood test, however, these test are essential in ruling out other causing factors such as brain tumor or stroke. If bipolar disorder is not caused by other illnesses then the physician may conduct a mental health examination. The doctor checks on any bipolar disorder history in the patient's family line. The test has to be conclusive to avoid mistaking it for the common unipolar disorder which is a major depressive disorder where the affected don't experience obsession. Treatment Of Bipolar Disorder Currently there is no cure for this condition; however different treatments are administered to help those suffering from this condition to gain much better control of their mood changes as well as the related symptoms. Bipolar disorder is long term and recurrent therefore an efficient maintenance treatment plan should be used. This treatment plan involves psychotherapy and other medication is essential in preventing relapse as well as minimizing the severity of its symptoms. Since different people respond differently to medication then different medications may be used to treat this condition. Among these medications include mood stabilizers, lithium, valporic acid as well as other anticonvulsant medications.

    A classic now available in a new, expanded edition-a witty, literate, and accessible tour of the world of mathematics. 
     
       The Art of the Infinite takes infinity, in its countless guises, as a touchstone for understanding mathematical thinking. Robert and Ellen Kaplan guide us through the "Republic of Numbers,†? where we meet both its upstanding citizens and its more shadowy dwellers; and transport us across the plane of geometry into the unlikely realm where parallel lines meet. The journey is enriched by deft character studies of great mathematicians (and equally colorful lesser ones). And as we go deeper into infinity, we explore the most profound mystery of mathematics: Are its principles eternal truths that we discover? Or ones that we invent?
