Date:6/5/2008

Books from experts and patients provide advice for staying fit and facing

major illnesses

RALEIGH, N.C., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- If living a healthy life is your goal, you might want to consider putting down that apple a day and picking up a book from the Lulu.com Global Marketplace.

Not only are doctors, nutritionists and therapists using Lulu's Web tools to publish and share their expertise on how to stay healthy, wealthy and wise, but so are everyday people who have faced major health challenges and want to share their insight to help others.

From the Experts

In "7 Steps to a Healthy Brain," ( http://www.lulu.com/content/1772457 ) Dr. Paul Winner, a pioneer in the treatment and research of migraines and Alzheimer's disease, provides a seven-step formula to help you live longer and better. Director of the Premiere Research Institute and the Palm Beach Headache Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., Dr. Winner has spent numerous years listening to his patients and treating them with practical recommendations for your brain and body-all captured in this guide.

In "Mommy Found a Lump," ( http://stores.lulu.com/tobbenterprises ) Dr. Nathalie Johnson, a surgical oncologist with expertise in breast cancer and melanoma at the Legacy Hospitals Cancer Program in Portland, Ore., combines her clinical and childhood experience as a young daughter whose mother was diagnosed with cancer in an illustrated children's book that helps parents explain what a family experiences as a mom goes through treatment for breast cancer.

From the Experienced

In "You Can Beat Prostate Cancer," ( http://www.lulu.com/content/483195 ) Robert Marckini, a prostate cancer survivor who now runs an international prostate cancer support group, shares his journey and the major treatment options that he considered.

"I am a senior cancer research scientist and academic physician who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2002. I went through the same deductive reasoning that Mr. Marckini outlines in his book, which was written with candor, warmth, clarity and insight," said H. Terry Wepsic, M.D., professor emeritus of pathology at the University of California, Irvine. "I recommend it to anyone who is diagnosed with prostate cancer and trying to determine what treatment is right for them."

Frustrated by the very limited selection of gluten-free items available in her local stores, celiac sufferer Fran Leach compiled nearly 300 recipes in her self-published "Gluten Free Easy" ( http://www.lulu.com/content/1090006 ) cookbook to share with others around the globe. Leach's cookbook contains 114 recipes selected specifically for children suffering from celiac disease, all of which are not hard to cook or eat!

"Dealing with health issues is a very personal experience," said Bryce Boothby Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer of Lulu.com. "Readers want information that is tailored to their situation, not produced for the mass market. In the Lulu.com Marketplace they can connect with books created by authors who have specialized expertise or have gone through a similar experience."
