Foods That Fight Pain: Revolutionary New Strategies for Maximum Pain Reliefby M.D. Neal Barnard
Synopses & Reviews
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.
A dramatic, food-based approach to coping with the ravages of pain explains how to use a nutritional program that combines pain-safe foods, foods that soothe pain, and food supplements in a total strategy to help readers cope with menstrual cramps, arthritis, infections, cancer, headaches, and more. Reprint. 35,000 first printing. Tour.
Neal Barnard, M.D., is president of the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine, editor-in-chief of the newsletter Good Medicine, and a member of the advisory board of Vegetarian Times magazine. Dr. Barnard travels widely giving lectures on nutrition and health.
