Product Description


JAMES RIPPE MD, Director, Center for Clinical and Lifestyle Research, Exercise Physiology and Nutrition Center. "The whole issue of women′s sports and athletics is really burgeoning. I thinj a book in this area is timely and appropriate. The trick will be to make sure that it contains absulutely up–to–date information and that the target audience is clearly identified ... I do feel that the time has come to put together a good book on female sports and fitness in general". THOMAS PARKER VAIL MD, Ortho Surgery, Duke University. "I think the basic outline is qite satisfactory. I might suggest that you include a section on physiology that might include differences between cardiovascular and musculoskeletal physiology. "I am not aware of any comprehensive book that deals specifically with the female athlete. I do agree that both orthopedic and primary care physicians will benefit from this reference. "Although I do not personally know Dr. Ireland, I have heard nothing but good things about her". CHAMP L. BAKER MD, Hughston Sports Medicine Clinic, Columbus, GA. He likes the basic outline but would put injuries after pregnancy, psychology and age. He doesn′t know of another book available on this topic. He feels that both orthopedic and primary care physicians will benefit from this book. "As editor, Dr. Ireland would be able to handle this project". ROSEMARY MORWESSEL MD, MUSC –Othopaedic Surgery. She believes the outline is good – it should include osteoporosis. She is aware of only one competitior – Saunder′s Clinics in Sports Medicine – Rosemary Agostini, ed – Says Ireland would be a good editor. SUZANNE TANNER MD, Sports Medicine Center, U. Colorado. Outline is good overall. Says some of the the topics, such as anorexia and bulimia should not be separate since they are essentially a continuum. We should include the female preparticipation exam. She knows of the Agostini Clinics book. She thinks the book will be more beneficial to primary care sports doctors than to orthopaedic surgeons. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Comprehensive - actually could be a textbook on physiology.
What the doctors are saying may be found everywhere, yet, this is a mini-encyclopedia
of information!

Books that contain this much info usually cost about $250 USA dollars... so this is
a real deal.

I may not agree with everything nutritionally, I am a Marathon and Ultra runner
who has since began Walking and using Walking Meditation to get my highs.
I gave up meat long ago. I believe we are rediscovering our youth in the
twilight years due to Listening To Our Bodies and Talking To Ourselves, i.e.,
(treating the Body as an entity, a friend of our spirit)

New Science Discovery, the importance of Hydration. Maybe the
nutrition section will get the
Hope the ReDox Signaling Molecular interactions regarding hydration
make the update ... ASEA is making athletes turn in better
performances worldwide!
Not A Sells But INFORMATION that needs to be told:
Cell-to-cell communication is vital to health. Cells that can't
ef'ciently communicate the need for repair to their neighbors
are less likely to heal. ASEA optimizes cellular ef'ciency
and communication, making it the world's 'rst
bio-communications product and empowering your body to
heal itself.
