Charles A. Moss, M.D. Releases THE ADAPTATION DIET
Charles A. Moss, M.D., nationally acclaimed pioneer of integrative medicine, lecturer and author, announces the release of his new book, The Adaptation Diet: A Three-Step Approach to Control Cortisol, Lose Weight, and Prevent Chronic Disease. Based on 35 years of clinical experience and cutting-edge science, The Adaptation Diet offers an easy-to-understand explanation of the scientific link between the stress hormone cortisol and weight gain. Dr. Moss provides readers a straightforward plan for reducing cortisol, losing weight and slowing the aging process. Using the newly emerging science of epigenetics, Moss explains how diet and environment influence our biological destiny, and how we can take steps to reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes and cancer.
Until recently nature seemed clearly distinct from nurture. Now it appears that our diets and lifestyles can change the expression of our genes by influencing a network of chemical switches within our cells collectively known as the epigenome. The new field of epigenetics has been called the 'epicenter of modern medicine.' Moss educates readers on which foods protect gene expression and how to help reduce risk for obesity as well as how to protect children's gene expression before they are even born. In The Adaptation Diet, Moss shares insights through epigenetic research:
- The five bioactive foods that protect gene expression and help reduce your risk for obesity, diabetes, and cancer
- How to protect your children's and future generations' health through gene expression and the science of epigenetics
- By following the right dietary suggestions, you can reduce exposure to gene-altering chemicals called obesogens, lose weight, and reduce your risk for chronic disease
"The Adaptation Diet is the result of working with thousands of patients over the past 35 years, a culmination of what I have learned about regaining adaptation, optimizing weight and preventing disease," said Dr. Moss.
Dr. Moss has been practicing integrative medicine and Five Element acupuncture in La Jolla, California, since 1978, when he established The Moss Center for Integrative Medicine, one of the first holistic health medical clinics in the United States. A pioneer of combining Eastern medicine with the best of scientific integrative medical practice, Dr. Moss has trained physicians throughout the world. His unique approach to treating stress-induced and chronic medical problems attracts patients from all over the U.S., Europe and Latin America. Dr. Moss is also the author of Power of the Five Elements: The Chinese Medicine Path to Healthy Aging and Stress Resistance.
