A big buzzword in the medical/nutrition/healing
communities today is inflammation.
Recently, the connection between inflammation and disease has become established.
Chronic inflammation within our bodies erodes our wellness, paves the path for ill
health and speeds up aging. Hidden food allergies can overstimulate the immune system,
causing inflammation; any inflammation in the body interferes with and slows down
metabolism and our natural healing response. Unfortunately, imbalances in our standard
diet cause most Americans to suffer from fairly high levels of inflammation. Older
Americans are especially at risk; the effects of inflammation can manifest in
seniors as heart disease,
arthritis and other problems.
The good news is that
disease caused by inflammation can often be controlled or prevented through proper
Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book” gives readers specifics on how to eat and
cook in order to prevent and counter inflammation, promoting simpler and easier
digestion, and offering less insult to the body by reducing intake of toxins and
other difficult to digest foods. –Don Rose
Medical research shows that
chronic inflammation in our bodies erodes wellness, makes us age faster, and leads
to degenerative diseases. Hidden food allergies can over-stimulate the immune system,
causing inflammation, which in turn slows down metabolism and our natural healing
response. Unfortunately, due to imbalances in the standard American diet, most Americans
suffer from fairly high levels of inflammation. As a result, many people develop
chronic diseases that could be controlled or prevented through proper nutrition.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seven out of
ten deaths are caused by chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease,
all of which have a direct connection to inflammation and nutrition.
What can be done to ensure optimal health and healing? "The Anti-Inflammation Diet
and Recipe Book," written by leading naturopathic doctor Jessica K. Black, N.D.,
helps readers reclaim health by guiding them to practices that facilitate cellular
regeneration rather than cellular degeneration and disease. Dr. Black educates readers
on making diet choices that promote easier digestion, reduce the intake of toxins,
and allow greater absorption of nutrients. The result is improved cellular function
and metabolism, and possibly greater vitality and beauty -- not to mention a longer
Appropriate for men and women of all ages (even children), Dr. Black's book offers
specifics on what to eat and how to cook in order to counter and even prevent inflammation.
While providing delicious food choices, the diet eliminates allergens and reduces
the intake of pesticides, hormones and antibiotic residues. It encourages whole
foods; reduces processed foods, sugars, and other potential toxins such as hydrogenated
oils; and encourages ample intake of vegetables and fruits for essential nutrients.
Changing one's diet, preparing healthy meals, and enjoying nutritious foods were
never so easy.
