The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book: Protect Yourself and Your Family from Heart Disease, Arthritis, Diabetes, Allergies - and More

The connection between inflammation and heart disease, arthritis, and other chronic ailments has become increasingly clear. Many food allergies and poor dietary choices over stimulate the immune system and cause inflammatory responses that erode the body’s wellness and pave the path for ill health. Based on her naturopathic practice, Jessica Black has devised a complete program for how to eat and cook to minimize and even prevent inflammation and its consequences. The first part of the book ex

I read about nutrition every day and have a library of texts on the various subjects. I am a researcher by profession and an avid ‘truth seeker’ about nutrition and health. I have read many texts concerning inflammation (probably the greatest new area of medical research in the next 20 years, excluding cancer – which also has a good deal in common with inflammation issues) and this is a book that I would recommend above all the others. It has good solid accurate information concerning the many causes of inflammation and the ways to counter act the body’s state of inflammation. There is information in this text that I have never found anywhere else (i.e.: What CANOLA OIL is really all about!). The details surrounding the condition of inflammation in the body are more complete and concise here. If you are going to buy one good book on inflammation – this would be the one to buy. (Save your money on “Inflammation Nation” – I wish that I had not wasted mine purchasing it.)

Having just prepped my tofu using the baked tofu recipe in this book, I thought maybe it worth the time to write a review. Early on in life, I had IBS – was told in my teens about the importance of diet changes, about not eating the nightshade veggies, no deep fried food, etc. But in this very active, busy, and wonderful life, I ended up making minimal changes to my diet, finding that if I avoided red meat, fried food, and peanuts, I wouldn’t get sick. Well, these past few years I have been hit hard with Psoriatic arthritis – though it took a while to even get that diagnosed correctly. First it was psoriasis- not a spot until after 40, when it then spread over my scalp, legs, and my arms – then 2 hip replacements, etc. So after the latest (shoulder) surgery, I decided it was time to get serious, and look at the food issue once more. I love my cheese, crackers, chips, and chardonnay – almost too much. I’m also a teacher, wife, and mom to 2 young guys, who’s involved in animal rescue. Time is tight in our family. I’ve read up quite a bit on the anti-inflammation diet info, and have found some contradictions, and also just can’t bring myself to drinking horrible tasting tea concoctions, giving myself enemas, etc. I also do not like to cook, much less have time for it. Let’s add, no self-discipline.

So given all that, this book really helped me to change my life in a wonderful way. She gives very reasonable, clear information on what foods to avoid, and which ones to include in your diet in easy to read charts. Using this book over the others, I’ve been able to make changes to my diet, lose 13 pounds in two months without thinking I’m on a diet, and go without using Enbrel or other meds that lowered my immune system. My psoriasis is clear on my legs and arms – still working on the scalp – and I feel and look great. What I’ve done instead – with my doctor’s blessing – is
*replace the meds with fish oil supplements, prescribed so they are clear of any contaminants, and take vitamin c, d, and calcium supplements
*Eliminate eating processed sugar, and avoid cane product in general – I have been shocked at the amount of sugar in our food!! and this has helped me revise my kids food, to decrease this with them as well in a way they can live with 🙂 Honey, maple syrup, and molasses are ok
*Drink green teas
*Avoid, but not totally eliminate wheat products – just reduce, but eat whole grain food
*Reduce the amount of dairy I eat – I still need a little of my cheese!! 🙂 But no milk – replace with soy/rice milk, careful to buy those that do not have cane sugar in them.
*Increase the amount of grain, veggies, fruits, and nuts – NO PEANUTS however – in my diet.
*Use only olive oil, or canola – even given what she stated about it… and coconut oil in baking
*Eliminate all nightshade veggies -these include potatoes (a tough one!!) tomatoes (also tough!) eggplant, among others.
*No alcohol for the first month, and now limit my intake to one glass, when going out with friends.
*I still have my morning cup of coffee

This book has helped me to make food changes for me and my family. My husband will always be a meat eater! but I’m able to make foods for all of us without a lot of extra effort. This book has done so much for me, and I’m grateful to the author for providing information that has helped me to create a huge positive change to my health and life. If you have been through anything similar to what I’ve been through, this book is definitely a great resource.

If you’re looking for a good book on eating an anti-inflammation diet, this would be a good pick. I knew basically nothing about anti-inflammation food until I read it. You can roughly split the book in two parts. The first one explains how an anti-inflamation diet works.

The second part? Well, let me put it like this. The book is about 240 pages long- and the recipes start on page 55 and go to page 225- so just know that the vast majority of this book is a lot of recipe suggestions. Don’t get me wrong- I consider this to be a big plus. Another good thing is that it gives you eating plans for both the winter and summer months- which helps a lot when you’re trying to stick with the diet.

So if you want to learn more about eating an anti-inflammation diet, this bookwill certainly help you out. By the end, you’ll know what to eat, and what not to eat. And readers looking for more ways to help their arthritis might also want to check out Treat Your Own Knee Arthritis.
