Great food for inflammation sufferers.Cut your finger accidentally and the area will swell, redden, and heat up.

This type of acute inflammatory response is the body's reaction to trauma, and it's an essential part of the healing process. But inflammation can be harmful when it hangs around too long and refuses to leave. When the inflammation switch refuses to turn off, the body operates as if it is always under attack (the older we get, the more likely this is to happen). White blood cells flood the system for weeks, months, and even years. Researchers are now linking low-grade, persistent inflammation to premature aging, heart disease, M.S., diabetes, Alzheimer's, psoriasis, arthritis, and cancer. While anti-inflammatory drugs do exist, they can injure the stomach or suppress the immune system. Fortunately, the situation can be remedied by a change in diet, specifically by altering the kinds of fats you eat. Omega-3 fatty acids tend to decrease inflammation while omega-6 fats and trans-fats increase inflammation. While many foods in the standard American diet (unrefined white flour, sugar, red meat, diary, fast food, and food additives) exacerbate inflammation, a healthy diet made up of fish, nuts, seeds, oils, lean grass-fed meats, and fruits and vegetables can help lessen or prevent inflammation. Likewise, certain spices such as turmeric, cloves, and ginger have proven anti-inflammatory activity. Anti-Inflammatory Foods for Health will help those with inflammation incorporate anti-inflammatory foods into their everyday diet. Sample recipes may include French-Canadian Pea Soup, Sumac Salmon, Maple-Ginger Butternut Squash, Lime-Ginger Glazed Chicken with Fennel Relish, Green Salad with Grapes and Sunflower Seeds, Cod with Saffron Sauce, and more.

    Very disappointing! These folks have much to learn before they should attempt to author a book. Very much about food , cooking and science.!

    Since deciding to begin the journey of Mediterranean/Anti-Inflammatory diet, I have been looking for books to help me choose which foods are best. Also, what foods are bad and why. Not only does this book do all of that, it also has recipes!! Most of them sound pretty yummy amazing. The thing I like about this eating plan, is that it isn't really a diet to lose weight. It's more of a lifestyle change. And you aren't really barring yourself from the "bad" food. You're just moderating it.

And hey, we all know red meat is bad (well this week it is anyway, LOL!), but with this, you can have that steak. Just make sure you balance it out with something high in omega-3. Easy as boiling water, eh?

    This is a pretty basic guide to anti-inflammatory foods. The intro provides a basic overview to which foods provide anti-inflammatory benefits, and then the rest of the book is broken down into chapter with a brief intro of specific anti-inflammatory properties (Omega 3 foods, antioxidants, fiber, etc.) followed by recipes. Although I haven't yet made any of the recipes, they seem easy-to-follow. The authors provide basic nutritional info for each of the recipes.

    I was recently on a search for foods with an anti-inflammatory nature and I ran across this book at my local library. It's a great resource for anyone trying to move to a more veggie friendly lifestyle and move away from processed foods. One of my favorite recipes is for the Spaghetti Squash, I've made it twice already, and the fresh spaghetti sauce can stretch and be used to go on top of other dishes. I would definitely add this to my cookbook collection. I was recently on a search for foods with an anti-inflammatory nature and I ran across this book at my local library.

    I did like the recipes in this book which I got because my Doctor put me on an anti-inflammatory diet. I would have liked a chart or list of anti-inflammatory foods vs. Inlammatory foods for more background, but then I'm new at this. This would be a good recipe book for someone who is an old hand at this diet though. Yummy recipes!

    A great reference tool full of recipes that focus on eating the right foods to reduce inflammation and improve your health. Recipes include calorie and nutrition information and use simple ingredients.

    Good info on inflammation, but although her recipes are wheat-free, they are not gluten-free. So we can't use a lot of them. Good info on inflammation, but although her recipes are wheat-free, they are not gluten-free. So we can't use a lot of them.
