Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the most common genetic disorders, affecting one in every 1,000 people and responsible for up to ten percent of patients on dialysis worldwide. The disease is characterized by the development of cysts that lead to progressive kidney failure and necessitate dialysis or a kidney transplant in most patients aged around fifty. Moreover, the persistent cyst growth causes high blood pressure and painful complications. Although we have known about the disease for over a century and its genetic basis for almost 20 years, there was no effective treatment until now.

We ran our fingers down the index of each one, looking for baked goods that appealed to us both. Quickly, we realized we had a problem.
There were too many cookies to make. Gingersnaps, butterscotch cookies, Florentines
We are coming into the home stretch of holiday cookies and goodies around here. I don't want to think about how many pounds of butter, flours, and sugar have been used in this kitchen the past month. I can't even calculate how many times the paddle of the KitchenAid has whirled around these weeks. Every day I am a little bit tempted to throw up my hands, put away the flours, and lie down on the

Prescription for Nutritional Healing By Phyllis A. Balch, CNC
Prescription for Nutritional Healing is the most thorough drug-free guide to managing chronic conditions I have ever come across.

I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially practicing dietitians, looking to expand their holistic knowledge. If you, like me, consistently counsel patients not responding to or interested in Western Medicine, then this is your answer.
