The I Can't Chew Cookbook

The I Can't Chew Cookbook

So you've just had some kind of oral surgery, and you're sick and tired of the liquid diet. And the baby food diet. And the no-food diet. Well, starve no more!Author Jean Bly had a similar experience, and now she's sharing her secrets on how to beat the problems caused by restricted eating. In this tastefully collected gathering of recipes, one can overcome the restrictions caused by any invasion of the mouth or gums. And what's more, these recipes are delicious! Take a look for yourself.Ranging in palate- and stomach-pleasing delights from basic biscuits to chicken and dumplings, author Jean Bly sets forth in easy-to-understand language both the process for preparation and an explanation of the benefits as well. Her experience mirrors that of many other people who, after oral surgery or treatment of any mouth-related medical problem, find the restricted diet they are placed on just doesn't fill them up or satisfy. Mrs. Bly takes care of both these concerns.More importantly--Mrs. Bly's specially-developed way of presenting the recipe is a major help to the cook in preparing the dishes without trial and error, or embarrassing failures. Her recipes also bear the two unmistakable marks of the true master of the kitchen: simplicity and economy. Every dish is presented so that anyone can prepare it, without breaking the budget or the rules of medicinal restriction.As a guide for people with teeth, without teeth, denture wearers, post-operative, or the elderly, this veritable cornucopia of tasty meals also contains hints to promote better eating habits and more nutritional meals for anyone with mouth problems. When acknowledging her own situation, that of a denture wearer who'd just had implant surgery, the author found no guidelines for good eating. Frustrated, hungry and in pain, Mrs. Bly began experimenting and through her good efforts this unique and important cookbook was created. Palates and stomachs everywhere will thank her!THE I-CAN'T-CHEW COOKBOOK is not by any means a complete cookbook and was not intended to be. My goal was to share with you what I learned and tried during this time when eating is hard and very boring. I hope you will try at least one idea and recipe in order to make your healing time pass in a more pleasant way. Having the support of my husband and my dentist, Dr. Timmon Dye, and his wonderful staff, and good food have been a great help. If you have a great mouth and perfect teeth I hope you will try a recipe or two also. Your meals do not have to be boring or soup only. Be creative, and happy eating.JeanP.S. Seven weeks after my surgery, I had a piece of bacon. Yes, it was great, but not easy to eat.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is intended as a practical reference for clinicians caring for ALS patients, and will bring together the collective wisdom of those at the forefront of patient-oriented research and practice. This will be an official project of the ALS Research Group (founded by Dr. Mitsumoto and currently headed by Dr. Bedlack), and provides both an evidence-based and experience-based guide to multidisciplinary ALS care. The book will begin with a brief review of current concepts of ALS including diagnostic criteria, genetic and sporadic subtypes, epidemiology, co-morbidities and prognosis. Individual chapters then tackle the gamut of specific issues that arise in caring for people with ALS, from breaking the news all the way through end-of-life care and bereavement. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is divided by disciplines, mirroring the way large multi-disciplinary ALS clinics operate and includes pertinent material for each member of the care team. Each section will has one primary author from that discipline (an expert ALSRG member), who will review the specific issues they have seen arise and review the evidence-based options presented for each issue. Each section will also has a group of secondary authors, other experts from the same discipline who offer counterpoints or other ideas about how to handle clinical problems (i.e. use of lipids and statins, screening for driving, etc.)—essentially what has or hasn't worked for them—thus capturing the variety of opinions across experts in the field and providing real-world care information that isn't available or documented anywhere else.
