About the Author
More About the Author
Always ahead of her time, Ann Louise set the pace for new health protocols in the 1990s with four more breakthrough books. She was the first to warn of the environmental hazards of parasites in her classic Guess What Came to Dinner? Parasites and Your Health. In Your Body Knows Best, Ann Louise was the first to discuss the blood type/weight theory and proclaim that one diet may not be right for every body − an idea that is only now becoming mainstream. She was the first to offer natural remedies for menopausal symptoms in Super Nutrition for Menopause and is widely credited as the first to popularize the term "perimenopause" in her New York Times bestseller, Before the Change.
Ann Louise forged new ways of thinking about obesity early on in her career. She was the first to proclaim that obesity was caused by the lack of dietary fats and the wrong kind of carbohydrates in her book Beyond Pritikin, published in 1988. In Beyond Pritikin, she predicted that the fat-free, carb-rich diet was creating weight gain, sugar cravings, fatigue and diabetes.
AWARDS AND PRESS
A savvy and dynamic speaker, Ann Louise has been featured on 20/20, Dr. Phil, The View, Good Morning America, Extra! and The Early Show. In addition, her work has been featured on CNN, PBS, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CBN, Fox News, and the BBC. Her work has been featured in a myriad of national publications ranging from Time and Newsweek to Glamour and The Oprah Magazine. Millions of readers follow her advice through her column in First for Women magazine, and thousands visit her website www.annlouise.com on a daily basis.
Today, Ann Louise continues to dedicate herself to carving out new landmarks in holistic health and healing based on science and ancient healing arts. Through her many books, website, and blog (www.annlouise.com/blog), she offers a "virtual" health support system for men and women that provides educational and self-health assessment services to empower people everywhere to achieve total health. The bestselling author of The Fat Flush Plan has turned her attention to the hazards of the wireless age with her newest release--Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution (HarperOne, 2010).
Praise for Zapped:
"Dr. Gittleman provides a cogent, sobering look at the effects of ever present electromagnetic pollution on our biology and clear, practical advice on how to minimize our exposures and our risk. Please follow her advice, it may save your life and give you renewed energy."
--Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times best-selling author of The UltraMind Solution and How to Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First
"Zapped is an empowering guide that will help you transform your body and your home into a sanctuary of health and healing."
--John Gray, PhD, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
"The book caught my attention immediately because I've been reading about, studying, and writing about the effects of electropollution for several years. This book just adds further confirmation that we live in an 'electropolluted' world, and we need to protect ourselves the best we can... You can learn many, many more simple and more in-depth tips on how to protect yourself by reading Zapped."
--Susan Lark, MD, author of Hormone Revolution and editor of Women's Wellness Today
"You are being 'Zapped' whether you know it or not! When artificial and manmade frequencies from cellphones, wireless computers, and cordless phones constantly bombard your system, they alter the body's natural electromagnetic balance and affect DNA, organs, and glands. Packed with scientific backup, find out what you can do about electropollution--a public health concern more insidious than cigarettes, asbestos, and HRT combined. The life you save may be your own--and your loved ones."
--Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health and former Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine

First, Gittleman lays out a strong case for the greatly increased prevalence of parasites in today's America, pointing to a number of factors such as the great increase in international travel, the contamination of water supplies, the increased use of antibiotics, the ever-growing use of day-care centers (which one expert dubbed the open sewers of the 20th century), and the dramatic number of household pets interacting with men, women, and especially children. She then describes some of the symptoms of the different kinds of parasitic conditions.Read more ›

I usually like her books but this was not what I expected and to be honest, a lot of talk without real ability to diagnose or treat.Published 9 months ago by Karen Gunther-chung
It was informative to let one know about parasitic invasions in the body and some extent of the harm they can do, but it doesn't tell you how to rid them. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Renee McLaurine
Great information and I love that she gives you the names of stuff to take. I wish she would have been more in depth of the treatment though.Published 11 months ago by Jane Smith
