Death by Modern Medicine: Seeking Safe Solutions-eBook, 2008
This book goes far beyond the statistics of deaths due to drugs. It shows how the allopathic medical monopoly has created a Health Care system that fails to encourage good health, especially by prevention. "Death by Modern Medicine" documents the tales of propaganda, health care bureaucracy, and the focus on profits instead of healing. It shows, statistically, that the number 1 killer in North America, is in fact, one of the most heavily regulated products, services and facilities industry in North America - The Allopathic Medical Industry. In this second edition of Death by Modern Medicine, Dr. Dean points to the future of natural health care and how we can take responsibility for our health and have access to safe organic supplements even in these trying times.

The Magnesium Miracle-Ballentine, 2007
Amazon Review:
Magnesium is extremely important for good health. Yet for far too many years this vital mineral has been largely overlooked by most doctors. Shockingly, most laboratory blood tests do not even measure magnesium status although magnesium is involved as an essential factor in more aspects of health than any other mineral. Since magnesium status is rarely measured, most doctors don't know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though about 80% of Americans are deficient in this essential mineral. And magnesium deficiency is a significant factor -- often the primary factor -- in many severe illnesses including heart attacks and other forms of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, fatigue, migraines and other headaches, osteoporosis, insomnia, and most cases of muscular problems.

Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly from the foregoing ailments or are having their symptoms treated with expensive drugs (which often have unpleasant or dangerous side effects) when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation. This excellent and easily-readable new book by Dr. Dean (an up-to-date revision and expansion of her ground-breaking book The Miracle of Magnesium) discusses these and other important aspects of this vital mineral in detail. Everyone who is concerned about his or her health should acquire and read this very important book, even if you already own its earlier version. So should their doctors. And the vast majority of Americans should increase their magnesium intake by suitable diet and appropriate supplementation as Dr. Dean recommends. Those who do will very likely find themselves free of many ailments they may now have.

IBS for Dummies-Wiley, 2005
Jeffrey D. Roberts, Founder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome Association says IBS for Dummies is "A well researched encyclopedia about Irritable Bowel Syndrome". His review on continues with the following accolades for this book. "IBS For Dummies is likely the most complete and current book about IBS that has been written to date for the non-medical reader. It covers pretty well every topic and aspect about the illness and it does it very well. The book reads easily from cover-to-cover or as a reference from chapter to chapter. This book is for sufferers or for anyone who wants to learn more about this chronic illness. Certainly well worth the read and as an addition to your personal IBS book library."

From 10-20 percent of Americans suffer from IBS. It's another disease of civilization and lifestyle run amok. There are no medications for IBS and the natural medicine approach is treatment there is for this condition. Diet, herbs, vitamins and minerals, and EFT are all described in detail along with a dozen triggers that you can learn to avoid. This timely guide features information on the nature of the disease and how it affects the body, covering symptoms, triggers, and the diseases that are often confused with (or can be combined with) IBS. It explains how to find a doctor, understand the diagnosis, and handle the emotional and financial challenges, and presents healthy nutrition guidelines, viable treatment options, and new research trends and drugs. Because IBS is a functional disease we offer many alternatives to drugs. Dr. Dean co-authored this book with her sister L. Christine Wheeler.

The Yeast Connection and Women's Health-Square One Publishing, 2005
Dr. Dean is the medical advisor to She co-authored the Yeast Connection and Women's Health with the late Dr. Crook.

Dr. Dean recognized the work of Dr. William Crook and The Yeast Connection very early in her practice. She treated Candida, had a Candida antibody testing lab, and was on the board of the Candida Foundation for many years. Dr. Dean lectured widely on Candida and the myriad conditions and symptoms it could produce, trigger, and exacerbate. These include chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, multiple sclerosis - in fact, most chronic conditions can have an element of Candida overgrowth because the body is in a weakened immune state.

If I told you that there is a living fungus trapped in your intestines that spews out180 chemical toxins capable of shutting down your thyroid, throwing your hormones off balance, causing you to crave sugar and alcohol, all of which make you put on weight, would you believe me? Chances are you absolutely would not. Such a devastating condition should be headline news. Moreover, every high tech research lab in the country should be frantically searching for a cure. Unfortunately, that's far from the case. But what I'm saying is true, and I'm so convinced about it that it's the basis for a completely new section in this book. A section that is devoted to weight and the yeast connection.

If you've been shuffling from doctor to doctor in search of answers to health problems, including weight gain, that have been plaguing you, perhaps for years, you've come to the right place. I don't have to tell you that not many doctors know about the yeast connection! From the time Dr. William Crook, or "Billy" as his friends knew him, published The Yeast Connection in 1983, he suffered professional ridicule and ostracism for his theories about the connection between candida yeast overgrowth and a wide variety of seemingly unconnected physical ailments. Unfortunately, modern allopathic, or conventional, medicine has abandoned many people who have genuine problems with yeast overgrowth. But doctors like Billy Crook kept bringing hope to thousands of people desperate for answers to their problems.

In my years of conventional medical training, I was taught only that yeast causes vaginitis and, on the opposite extreme, it causes a life threatening blood infection in patients with advanced cancers or AIDS. Fortunately, I studied yeast overgrowth as part of my naturopathic training in the early 1980s after I graduated from medical school. From the time I entered practice, I treated yeast in my patients with remarkable results. Then one day in 1986, I had the honor of being a guest with Dr. Crook on a Canadian television show. During our 90-minute program on yeast, the station tabulated an astounding 80,000 people clamoring to ask questions! After that show, the treatment of yeast occupied an even greater part of my medical practice. By 1991, I had treated more than 2,000 cases of the disease and I began to call yeast overgrowth, Crook's Candidiasis. I know that it was Dr. Crook's life's dream for this condition to be accepted by the medical community and I'm honored to be able to help achieve this.

So what is Crook's Candidiasis? In the simplest of terms, it encompasses overgrowth of yeast stimulated by excessive intake of sugar and overuse of antibiotics that leads to yeast invading the GI tract and creates leaky gut syndrome; yeast allergy with burning and itching; and widespread reactions due to the toxic yeast byproducts. These terms may not be part of your vocabulary right now, but they will be by the time you've finished reading this book.

Crook's Candidiasis is not new, but the rise of this insidious set of health problems is directly related to the advent of antibiotics about 60 years ago. I'm not trying to say that antibiotics are all bad, but the pervasive use of antibiotics for viruses, for which they are completely ineffective. Also, when they are used to encourage weight gain in livestock they become part of our food supply and help create the current epidemic of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Just take a minute to consider what I just said. It is an industry-wide policy to give antibiotics to livestock because it makes them gain weight. Well, I'm telling you that the same thing happens in humans.

As I will explain in Chapter XX destroying the normal balance of bacterial flora in the intestines and encouraging yeast overgrowth leads to weight gain that's very difficult to lose -unless you target yeast. In the past 50 years, we have ruthlessly bombarded the delicate ecology of our intestines with drugs that invisibly, but absolutely, encourage Crook's Candidiasis. Part of turning that tide is to replace those chemicals with natural products and work with diet and natural antifungals to eliminate yeast.

Please enjoy this latest edition of Yeast Connection and Women's Health, especially the new section on weight. I hope in some small way it helps carry on Dr. Crook's tremendous work.
