Pain/Inflammation Matters: Recipes for Life (Designing Health, Naturally)

The first in a new series of symptom-specific guides ("Designing Health, Naturally") providing "What You Really Need to Know" to prevent and reverse debilitating pain and inflammation without drugs and their side-effects — often times worse than the original condition. Written by a doctor who became a victim and recovered, after a life-threatening accident, a prescription drug-induced digestive disorder, and the subsequent onset of fibromyalgia and chronic inflammation. It details: causes and effects; non-drug pain and inflammation phyters; 30 gourmet night-shade-free recipes for cooking without foods that "ignite" the inflammatory process; heart health and the inflammation connection.

A slim but vital compendium of practical and applicable information By Midwest Book Review Pain/Inflammation Matters: Recipes For Life by Gloria Gilbere (a doctor of naturopathy, and expert in natural health issues, and an experienced homeopath), is a slim but vital compendium of practical and applicable information on the prevention, and even reversal, of fibromyalgia, arthritis, heart disease and inflammatory disorders. Organized into thoroughly "reader friendly" sections: "Causes & Effects"; "Heart Matters"; "Nightshade-free Recipes; and Non-drug Pain & Inflammation Phyters, Pain/Inflammation Matters should be considered "must reading" by anyone (especially non-specialist general readers) who suffer from chronic pain or inflammation. 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. This Is The Book I Needed By Marcia Y This book is a great help in understanding the causes of my pain. Avoiding nightshades has brought me great relief and I've gone a step further by ordering Invisible Illnesses by the same author. The more that I learn the more relief I'm getting. I love the nightshades but no food is worth the agony that I suffered. I like the fact that the author is writing and informing from her own experience. See all 2 customer reviews...
