Foods That Fight Pain: Revolutionary New Strategies for Maximum Pain Reliefby Neal D Barnard
Synopses & Reviews
Like Jean Carper's national best-seller, Foods Your Miracle Medicine, this vitally important book offers a dramatic new approach — one that works naturally, effectively, and with the best possible side effects!
A wealth of new research from prestigious medical centers around the world shows that food can counteract pain — even powerful pain. Since no company stands to make lots of money from this news, it has been slow to reach the pubic, and even doctors. As Neal Barnard reveals, these foods not only address painful symptoms, but they can fight underlying sources of pain by reducing damage from injury and inflammation, providing analgesia to nerves, and by working within the brain to reduce pain sensitivity.
Foods That Fight Pain speaks to the needs of the millions of Americans who suffer from cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even aches and pains from fatigue. Neal Barnard provides three major strategies — choosing pain-safe foods, adding foods that soothe pain, and using food supplements — which he then tailors to meet the reader's specific needs. The result is a book that draws on nature's own miracle drugs, whose side effects are effortless weight loss and renewed vitality, to restore the pleasures of pain-free living.
Did you know that ginger can prevent migraines and that coffee sometimes cures them? Did you know that rice can calm your digestion, that sugar can make you more sensitive to pain, that evening primrose can ease the symptoms of arthritis?
Drawing on new and little-known research from prestigious medical centers around the world, Neal Barnard, M.D., author of Eat Right, Live Longer and Food for Life, shows readers how they can soothe everyday ailments and cure chronic pain by using common foods, traditional supplements, and herbs.
Dr. Barnard reveals which foods regularly contribute to pain and how to avoid them. He guides the reader to specific pain-safe foods that are high in nutrition but don't upset the body's natural balance, as well as foods that actively soothe pain by improving blood circulation, relieving inflammation, and balancing hormones. Complete with delicious recipes, Foods That Fight Pain is a revolutionary approach to healing that will transform your life.
