  • Holt on: The Plant Protein Revolution

    Holt on: The Plant Protein Revolution

    Scientists continue to enumerate the benefits of plant-based protein diets for the population at large, but only a limited number of people hear and act on this simple message. This circumstance creates a monumental task in any attempts to change the eating habits of a nation. While it is often difficult to pin-point the influence of certain or individual dietary constituents on health, it appears clear that strong carnivorous tendencies tend to breed ill health. The over inclusion of meat protein in the human diet presents excessive intake of saturated fat and cholesterol and it contributes to excess morbidity and mortality from cancer, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. While this book highlights the negative effects of excessive animal protein on health, it presents foundations to support the conclusion that a change towards plant protein intake will confer health benefits on the U.S. nation or much of Western society.

  • Holt On: The Women’s Wellness Revolution

    Holt On: The Women’s Wellness Revolution

    Women’s Wellness is a very complex subject that has been summarized in this book, with special emphasis on menopausal disorders and premenstrual syndrome. In this book, there is a reasonably comprehensive account of hormone replacement therapy including discussions about its disadvantages and limitations. A growing number of physicians have opted to use “natural hormones” as a basis of their treatment approach. While menopause is a principal problem for the mature woman, the book describes the male equivalent of this problem, namely the andropause. How the andropausal male interacts with the menopausal female is an important issue that I have termed the omnipause. A major strength in this book is the description of the use of remedies of natural origin for female complaints. This approach is apparent in Dr. Holt’s development of therapeutic “Menoplans.” The book is meant to match today’s changes in treatment paradigms towards more natural forms of treatment for women’s woes.

    TAIJI DEMYSTIFIED: THE RELATIONSHIP OF TAIJI PRINCIPLES TO PHYSICS, PHYSIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, AND TAO

    THOMAS LUPICH is a retired electrical designer from Princeton University’s Plasma Physics Laboratory. He is a taiji instructor with an interest in science and in health.

    Many of the teaching in this book are novel since they relate to aspects of science not normally discussed in most taiji schools.

    Taiji, in the most succinct terms, is a way of holistically and optimally interacting with every aspect of life. In the martial arts context, taiji is simply an ideal way by which the player finds comfort while efficiently propagating and delivering energy to an opponent, while simultaneously gathering intelligence regarding his opponent’s every move, using his force and energy against him. It’s a way to harmonize every aspect of your being – mind, spirit, body – into a unified flow, so that everything you do and think will be done more effectively, rapidly and comfortably.

    To accomplish all of the above, there is a major prerequisite: one has to be quietly relaxed. Being relaxed is the main quality that taiji requires. And how does one become more relaxed? By learning how to not interfere with one’s self. The more relaxed one becomes, the more effective, soft, and powerful he becomes. Taiji is a way of life: a never-ending perfection process.

  • The Cannabis Revolution: What You Need to Know

    The Cannabis Revolution: What You Need to Know

    An esteemed medical practitioner and a pioneer of integrative medicine, Dr. Stephen Holt addresses a plethora of pros and cons on the use of marijuana in The Cannabis Revolution. While the book was originally intended to be a resource material for health advocates whose goal it is to be certified cannabis counselors, it is an excellent reference book for students and individuals who want to know more about the plant. As an ethical adherent of scientific inquiry, Dr. Holt wrote the book to update readers and concerned individuals about the developments in the study of cannabis, dismissing archaic views and unscientific judgment. He aims for the book to be read with an open mind. Dr. Holt conducted his studies with the least bias possible. As the book progresses, more valuable research findings on the benefits of using marijuana are presented and also more misconceptions are corrected, like the alleged cancer-curing properties of cannabis. Dr. Holt makes it clear that marijuana does not cure cancer. According to Holt, it has “valuable adjunctive cancer-treatment properties,” making it a helpful tool in treatment and alleviation of some symptoms, but not exactly an antidote to the multifaceted lifestyle disease. Dr. Holt also discussed the effects of marijuana on other medical condition like mental illnesses, HIV, cardiorespiratory disorders, neurological disorders, and even pregnancy. The various conditions are discussed in every chapter, detailing both the advantages and limitations of cannabis with regards to every disease. The potential backlash of writing a book about this controversial plant considered, it is proper to acknowledge the bold step taken by Dr. Holt. While the book does not lean on any side of the controversy, it does, however, champion an impartial medium between the two. Such is necessary since marijuana, like any other known herbal and synthetic drug, has good and bad effects. A balanced outlook of the popular and sometimes glorified plant promotes responsible usage, keeping in mind that too much of anything can also be harmful.

  • The Definitive Guide to Colon Hydrotherapy: A Modern Reappraisal of the Evidence Base, Principles and Practice of Colonic Irrigation

    The Definitive Guide to Colon Hydrotherapy: A Modern Reappraisal of the Evidence Base, Principles and Practice of Colonic Irrigation

    This book is a must read for all colon hydrotherapists and individuals who are interested in Alternative and Complementary Gastroenterology.

    “This book provides basic academic knowledge that all colon hydrotherapists should possess.” Dorothy Chandler, Past President, I-ACT, Chicago, IL

    “This book carries the worthy title of “The Definitive Guide to Colon Hydrotherapy.” While Dr. Holt has written this book for practitioners of colon hydrotherapy and their ancillary staff, this book should be of great interest to healthcare consumers and healthcare-givers of all disciplines. There is no doubt that this book is comprehensive in its approach; and Dr. Holt has been careful to separate out his personal recommendations from those of other organizations or regulatory agencies. For example, Dr. Holt feels strongly that colon hydrotherapists should have a good working knowledge of diseases of the colon so that they can identify individuals who present contraindications to colonic irrigation. Regulatory authorities do not generally encourage any involvement of non-physician colon hydrotherapists in colonic or general disease diagnosis, prevention or management.”
    Russell Kolbo, Past President, I-ACT

    Stephen Holt, MD, PhD, LLD, DSc Distinguished Professor of Medicine (Emerite), provides a modern account of the principles and practice of colon hydrotherapy.
