Overview

Hemochromatosis - an inherited metabolic iron disorder - is one of modern medicine's greatest oversights. For people with metabolic iron disorders, controlling the intake of iron contributes to wellness and the prevention of such chronic diseases as:


  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Arthritis

  • Liver disease

  • Impotence

  • Depression


The Hemochromatosis Cookbook is written specifically for those who suffer from such iron disorders. It has chapters on all of the traditional categories found in most cookbooks: appetizers, salads, fruits and vegetables, main courses and casseroles, breads and muffins, and desserts.


In addition, The Hemochromatosis Cookbook provides:



  • Easy-to-prepare, reasonably priced recipes that impede the body's absorption of iron

  • Food values and tips suggesting substitutions for reduced fat, sodium, and sugar

  • Helpful menu planning for busy schedules, cooking for company, or cooking for two

  • A shopping checklist with reminders about iron content

  • A chart showing the iron contents of common foods and vitamin supplements

  • A general explanation of iron imbalances, such as hereditary hemochromatosis, acquired iron overload, and anemia
