Publisher Comments:

What is the Inflammation Syndrome? It’s the cumulative effect of low-grade inflammation–including the aches and pains that we all experience–that grows into chronic, debilitating disease. The Inflammation Syndrome breaks down your body, making you feel old, tired, and sick. Triggered by inflammatory foods in your diet, the Inflammation Syndrome wreaks havoc on your health, paving the way for such serious diseases as heart disease, diabetes, Syndrome X, obesity, arthritis, allergies, asthma–even some cancers. Written by the bestselling coauthor of the groundbreaking Syndrome X, the book that helped bring the attention of the public to insulin resistance and the diabetes epidemic, The Inflammation Syndrome is the first major book to describe the broad role inflammation plays in disease–and to show you how to reverse and heal it.

Drawing on the cutting-edge research being done all over the world–research that has led to the successful treatment of many people who were considered untreatable or incurable by conventional medicine–Jack Challem provides a revolutionary approach to healing inflammation through an easy-to-follow nutritional program. Challem includes quizzes and tests to assess inflammation levels and risks; anti-Inflammation Syndrome recipes and menu plans; and easy ways to use healthy fats and other nutrients to quench the fires of inflammation. Challem reveals many of the hidden dangers in foods that set the stage for inflammation, causing aches, pains, and allergic reactions and increasing the long-term risk of life-threatening diseases. He shares the latest information on the problems with conventional prescription and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. He also offers dramatic case histories of patients treated by nutritionally oriented practitioners and up-to-the-minute information on and dosage recommendations for the best natural anti-inflammation supplements, such as fish oils, vitamin E, herbs, and many other natural remedies.

Providing a powerful plan to safely prevent and overcome inflammatory disorders, The Inflammation Syndrome shows just how easy it can be to take charge of one’s diet and health–and to feel great.

Synopsis:

Early Acclaim for The Inflammation Syndrome

"Challem's new book hits a home run-with the latest research on what to eat and take to defeat our real number-one cause of health problems-inflammation. It's a message of the utmost importance."

-Jean Carper, New York Times bestselling author of Stop Aging Now! and Your Miracle Brain, and columnist, USA Weekend magazine

"Treating and preventing inflammation has become a major priority and a breakthrough in today's medicine. Many of our most debilitating diseases can be traced to an inflammatory cause. The program Jack Challem outlines in The Inflammation Syndrome is a great first step in ridding your body of this deadly problem."

-Fred Pescatore, M.D., author of Thin For Good, The Allergy and Asthma Cure, and Feed Your Kids Well

"The Inflammation Syndrome compellingly shows how the typical Western diet promotes inflammation and disease. In a scientifically accurate and easy-to-understand manner, Jack Challem lays out the basic nutrition plan for good health and weight loss-a plan that mimics many features of the ancestral and native human diet."

-Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of The Paleo Diet

"Jack Challem has hit the bull's-eye when it comes to identifying the root cause of chronic inflammation-our pro-inflammatory Western diet. Following Challem's recommendations will not only relieve inflammation, it will lay the groundwork for optimal health."

-Jo Robinson, coauthor of The Omega Diet and principal investigator of eatwild.com

"In this book, Jack Challem focuses on inflammation, the most important underlying factor in health and disease. Anti-inflammatory strategies can slow the chronic and degenerative diseases of aging-even aging itself.

-Lester Packer, Ph.D., the world's foremost antioxidant research scientist and lead author of The Antioxidant Miracle
