Overview


Recently, the connection between inflammation and heart disease, arthritis, and other chronic diseases has become established. Many food allergies inefficiently and overabundantly stimulate the immune system to react and cause inflammatory responses. Any inflammation in the body interferes with and slows down metabolism and the healing response. Chronic inflammation within our bodies erodes our wellness and paves the path for ill health.

What is an anti-inflammatory diet? It eliminates many common allergenic foods that may promote inflammation in the body and reduces intake of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotic residues. The diet is full of whole foods, eliminates processed foods, sugars, and other man-made foods such as hydrogenated oils, and encourages ample vegetable intake for essential nutrients. The anti-inflammatory diet therefore promotes simpler and easier digestion and offers less insult on the body by reducing intake of toxins and other difficult to digest foods. If the blood and lymph are properly supplied and difficult to digest or assimilate foods are eliminated, cellular function, or in other words, metabolism, improves. Therefore the body is supported in such a way as to facilitate cellular regeneration and not cellular degeneration which may promote disease.

The author, a naturopathic doctor, has helped many people on their way back to health with this anti-inflammatory diet. THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET AND RECIPE BOOK is the first book to give the complete program with specifics on how to eat and cook in order to prevent and counter inflammation.

The purpose of the book is to act as a guide to help people learn to cook healthily. The first part of the book explains the benefits of the anti-inflammatory diet, gives the science. The second half of the book contains 108 recipes.

Many of the recipes can be used as a template for even greater meals. The author offers many substitution suggestions and includes healthy tips with each of the recipes. Most of the recipes take very little time to fix. A week's sample menu for summer months and another for winter months is included as well as a substitutions chart, so that you can modify your favorite recipes to make them more healthy.

This is a book for every healthy kitchen.

    good start, easy to follow, lots of info

    This is a good, basic, easy to understand book, and useful guideline to changing your eating habits and starting a healthier life style. There are no quick answers in this book, but it easy to follow and i am having success. The recipies are okay, and a good starting point. IF you know little or nothing about anti- inflammation diets, this is the book to start with, and if you know tons, this is a good refresher.

    Great book

    Very informative book. It's an easy plan to follow. Tells you which foods to avoid and which food is better for you. The recipes are really good and you don't need a lot of unique ingredients. I have suggested this book to others. It's worth it

    Disappointed

    I looked forward to help in planning and preparing meals that would either lower or alleviate inflammation. I thought this and the sequel were my answers. However while browsing through some of the recipes, while they look tempting they are so high in sodium, I would not spend the time required to try them. With the amount of sodium in these recipes, I may as well purchase the available packaged meals in the frozen food cases and save time. I wasted money on these two books and won't be eating any of these recipes.
