The essential family reference when it comes to understanding the treatment and prevention
of illnesses that affect the
human body.

FAMILY GUIDE TO HEALTH
Visualize, Heal, Prevent


Our health and the health of our loved ones remain without question our greatest concerns. How do the different organs work? What are the mechanisms at the origin of cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies, depression and sleep disorders?

A reference work that has benefited from
the participation of some 300 physicians,
medical specialists and university professors.


With unfailing attention to precision and clarity, the Family Guide to Health illustrates and explains the human body and more than 400 illnesses. Also addressing general family health and well-being, with topics such as pregnancy, child growth, nutrition, physical exercise and aging, it aims to provide professional insight and reliable information on all aspects of health. With hundreds of attractive photos, startlingly realistic medical illustrations, easy-to-understand text and practical advice for staying healthy, the Family Guide to Health is the essential reference book when it comes to the well-being of the entire family.

Medical imagery

 

Produced by our team of medical illustrators according to a precise and rigorous methodology, the illustrations of the human body achieve an unparalleled degree of realism and allow unprecedented views of the entire body. Designed starting with male and female models photographed from several angles, the illustrations were first sketched by hand, then designed by computer with the help of software and illustration techniques using the very latest technology. All illustrations have been validated by a team of more than 300 physicians, medical specialists and university professors.


Human models, both male and female, are photographed from all angles, providing a template for rendering all the systems and organs of the body and ensuring correct scale and proportions.

This method provides for precise images that above all demonstrate enormous attention to detail. The entire human body is revealed and recreated through a unique and rigorous approach to medical imagery.

First, detailed sketches are done by hand. The illustrations are then created by computer, using cutting-edge technology.
