Summary

Sometimes, when something goes wrong in your body, you notice it right away. But other times, the damage occurs unnoticed for a long time and can show up as a host of other problems. Take for instance the variety of inflammatory diseases like arthritis and asthma. Even cancer is a symptom of something else going on in your body. This “something” is often connected with chronic inflammation occurring in your body. 

Inflammation is not always a “bad guy”. Sometimes, you need it in order to protect and heal your body. Like when you broke that bone; the pain signals your body that something is wrong. The swelling and redness indicate that blood is rushing to area and fluid is leaking into the tissue to cushion the broken bone. But what happens when inflammation goes “wrong”?

Chronic inflammation means your body is inflamed all the time and begins to think your own body is the problem. It begins to attack your healthy tissue and cells in an attempt to “heal” it. When this happens, more problems arise. Things like type-2 diabetes and heart disease, for example, are results of chronic inflammation many times. The challenge with chronic inflammation is that you may not realize it is happening right away. You may not see the swelling or redness or may dismiss it as nothing serious. You may also treat a symptom of chronic inflammation without realizing what it really is. Unfortunately, treating the symptoms alone are not going to reduce the inflammation wrecking havoc on your body. You need to treat the source of the problem: the inflammation itself.

Treating inflammation is not an easy task; it requires a slow process of healing your body and bringing it back to the balance that it craves. It is made even more difficult by the pressures and habits of Western culture. Eating foods that aggravate inflammation are only making the situation worse, and you have probably been doing this for years! These foods you are choosing are probably making the symptoms and results of chronic inflammation worse and worse. But when you change it up and choose foods that will fight inflammation instead, you can start finding your way back to health. 

This lifestyle is not just about losing weight or looking good, although those are often side effects; it is more about healing your body and being healthy. Just remember, it is a lifestyle, and it does take time to reverse the years of damage chronic inflammation has caused. Be patient with yourself! You are doing the right thing now in supporting your health. Remember that each time you make that decision to reach for something anti-inflammatory rather than your old habits.

The more you understand the power of the foods that you put in your body, the better. And the more you discover how to stock your kitchen and plan out meals, the more empowered you become.

The food is good, or at least I like most of it.

Some of the recipes have ingredients that I had to look for - they weren't in my regular grocery store. I was able to find everything at a high end grocer.

A great start/introduction

Yeah it's exactly what you think.
#BTW chapter 7 is when the recipes start. 🤤
If you have absolutely no idea what the title is talking about, then read this book. It will help you.
However, if you're already in the know on the subject matter, find another book as some of this is outdated information and you probably already know what not to eat.
Although I will say, chapter 5 is where the author really starts delving out real solid and useful info

Not for people who are educated about their issue

This is for someone who is clueless. If you just wanted foods and recipes this is not for you.

The Anti-Infammatory Diet & Action Plans

Excellent book- great recipes it’s only been a short while but I'm feeling better already. I've made at least a dozen of the recipes so far, and they've all become family favorites.

Easy guidelines

The first chapter was very informative and helped me understand how and why our bodies process the foods we eat. I also found the pantry checklist as well as the chart giving lists of foods that fight inflammation as well as worsen it as an easy guideline.

The Anti-Inflammatory audio Cookbook opened my eyes to how I can reform my diet to not endure as much inflammation. With a thorough explanation of foods that causes inflammation and those that are anti-inflammatory, I was amazed at the true effect of what you eat can truly make or break your health.

Best information

This audiobook is full of great information and great recipes. I love this audiobook for the information as well as the large variety of food options. It is helping me identify what foods bother me and what I can keep eating. These recipes won't keep you locked in the kitchen cooking. Lots of time-saving ideas.

Lovely!!!

Although I have no conditions myself, I can think of friends and family who could benefit from an anti-inflammatory diet as well. I'm always looking for new and creative audio cookbooks, and The Anti-Inflammatory Diet audio Cookbook is a great addition to the collection.
