5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life.
I give God the credit for leading me to this book,it has made a huge difference in my health. Although diet does not effect everyones arthritis it does effect mine. This book gave me the information I needed to test myself,( there are no reliable medical tests for it yet, according to the doctors I've checked with ). It covers all the different types of arthritis and I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from any form of arthritis. Not only has it saved me from taking some pretty harsh drugs but it has worked for me, unlike the medications I have tried so far. ... Read more

Product Description

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.

A. Introduction

Although I do enjoy great food prepared by others much more talented and patient than I am, this reviewer never developed a sense for consistently caring for, and preparing,his own healthy food. But this book changed all that, in a practical and eye-catching way.

B. What I like about this book

In terms of format (presentation and appearance), the front page says it all: a) a 23-word title, b) three color-pictures with relevant food groups (walnuts, spinach, and smoked salmon), and c) the lead authors names with a mini-résumé behind their names, establishing their academic credentials (MPH, RN, LD, CNS, LDN, Ph.D., etc). As for the back page, instead of the standard endorsement by food industry and nutritionist celebrities, the authors and/or publishers have decided to reserve this space for providing more information about the book's content, and quizzing (via Multiple-Choice-Questions) the potential reader about his/her nutritional savvy, and listing no less than 10 recipes described in the book. On top of all these benefits, the book is reasonably priced ($19.95 US; £12.99 UK; $23.95 CAN)

As for the CONTENT (and substance): In addition to a section for Acknowledgments (pp. 184) and an elaborate index (pp. 186-192), the book is structured around the main food groups essential for good health:
* Introduction (pp. 7-23);
* Chapter 1: Boost Omega-3's (pp. 24-54);
* Chapter 2: Add-in antioxidants (pp. 55-85);
* Chapter 3: Fabulous fiber (pp. 86-117);
* Chapter 4: Change the energy balance (pp. 118-152); and...
* Chapter 5: Be carb savvy (pp. 153-183).

The introduction is worthy a separate mention: in this 17-page exposé, the authors introduce the readers to the basics of nutrition and principles for gaining and maintaining good health. They do so with a) two-column text; b) five tables, three figures, and two pictures! As they say, "A picture is worth a 1,000 words..." In this well-illusstrated book, the authors have made good use of the one picture/thousand words concept!

Each chapter basically follows the same pattern:
* An introduction to the subject with a two-column text;
* A `FYi' insert in the shape of text surrounded by a circle;
* A series of two-page recipes, with text on one side, and a full-page color photograph on the other page. The mouth-watering rendition of these full-page and full-color recipes is worth, by itself, the price of the book!

Each full-page recipe contains the following...
* Introduction to the recipe;
* Measurements of ingredients;
* Description of the various steps in the recipe;
* And finally a nutritional analysis (i.e., calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, fiber and cholesterol content, if any).

Many, though NOT all, recipes come with full-page color photographs. Some recipes are illustrated with a two-page photograph a) `Flaxseed blueberry walnut pancakes' (pp. 98-99); b) `Fiesta gazpacho with grilled shrimp' (pp. 128-129); and c) `Orange mango chicken fajitas' (pp. 140-141). In particular, I like the recipes for...
* `Smoked salmon sushi' (pp. 46-47); and
* `Mediterranean stuffed tomato' (pp. 74-75).
* Of particular esthetic, culinary, and other value to this reviewer is the recipe for `Peach-berry Port Wine Gelatin!' (pp 176). The adjoining picture features no less than three delicious berries, namely raspberries, blueberries and blackberries (thank goodness, not the electronic types).

I also appreciate the great care the authors and publishers have given to the authors' background (See `About the authors,' pp. 185). Two engaging full-color photographs of the two authors, with matching informative and descriptive caption(s).

C. What can be improved

Alas, as much as I wish, as a book reviewer, to find something to gripe about a book under my review, in this case I could NOT find anything substantial.Since it is NOT designed to be an academic book, there is not need to complain about the absence of footnotes, endnotes, and references cited. This makes it all the more readable by its intended audience.

I am fully and painfully aware that Rowe and Davis did NOT get the fullest acclaim they deserve.Some reviewers take the authors to task about including canola oil (e.g., Telecia Radke), tomato recipes (e.g., Dr. Loulou) and omega-3 to 6 ratio (e.g. Dr. Mark S. Edinger). As any person who has lived long enough has discovered and knows, one cannot please all the people all the time. In my own medical school training, we was told tomatoes are good for our health as a good source for antioxidants. Now, according to Dr. Loulou, tomatoes should be avoided at all cost! Whom am I to believe? Same thing with canola oil. If you don't like it, leave it...! But please, do NOT ever ruin a book's rating (20%), just because you happen to find canola oil or tomatoes toxic for `your' body. If it is as toxic as Telecia says, why doesn't the FDA ban its import from Canada? With a rating of 1/5, Dr. Mark S. Edinger does NOT earn points for charity, compassion and generosity towards the authors (1/5 stars = 20%). Was the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio the ENTiRE concern of the book? If NOT, why would Dr. Edinger give such a low rating? Does he not remember that we will be judged by the measure we judge others... And I dare NOT judge Dr. Edinger, whether he is a lowly doctor in some rural county clinic, or the chief medical adviser to the latest Pope, as a rating of (-) infinity would NOT do proper justice to his misplaced impudence and utmost arrogance. In such important matters of truth vs. untruth, I'd rather be known as a no-respecter of persons...

This book has been published in 2008, and this review written in 2010. In two years, much can and does happen, requiring, amng other things, the update of the authors' biosketch. I can think of at least three-five things in the life of the LEAD author that may need to be updated in the next edition of this great book: a) city of residence, b) marital status, c) number of people living at home, d) possibly even her new vocational status, and e) update on the number of dogs living with the author at home.

In the acknowledgment(s) section (pp. 184), lead author Barbara Rowe mentions the need for, and assistance of, food tasters and testers. In anticipation of a new, revised, and improved, edition of this otherwise GREAT book, I endeavor to apply for the newly created official position of `food taster cum food tester...' Besides tasting the food, as a semi-professional photographer (or advanced amateur), I can also double as a self-appointed graphic reporter for the book's many recipes. If and once that happens, however, I could no longer write an impartial review, as it would be an inherent conflict of interest, being a food taster cum photographer vs. an objective book reviewer without any vested fiduciary interests!

D. Conclusion

This highly readable book is a great value, i.e., getting the proverbial most `bang for the buck!' [where else can one find a recipe with a full-color picture for $0.137 or 14 cents per recipe, assuming there are at least a hundred of them in this book?] Furthermore, it can change a reader's approach to his/her health through the preparation and consumption of a great variety of healthy and health-promoting foods. I suggest this book should be a daily companion of any housewife and/or househusband, or whoever prepares the meals for the loved ones in every English-speaking household in America and around the world... [A translation into major languages such as Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Polish, and German, among others, should follow in short order...] Its place is on the kitchen counter, rather than collecting the proverbial dust on the shelves in one's personal library!

NOTE: No book, except perhaps for the Bible, is perfect and can, therefore, be improved upon; the same principle applies to a book reviewer like me. Should you, the reader of this review, have any question(s), comment(s), and/or suggestion(s) about my review, please feel free to contact me: I can be reached, at no extra cost to you, via email at {jpheldt123[at]yahoo[dot]com}. I will be looking forward to hearing from you soon.

4-0 out of 5 stars Anti-Inflammatory Foods for Health
Tonight I made the Pink Salmon Cakes with Mango-Raspberry chutney and it was spectacular!Have tried several salmon cake recipes but this is TRUELY THE BEST I have ever had!It was light and deliciously full of flavors of the mango, raspberry, sweet corn and tomato..a great summer dinner.Husband doesn't like cilantro so I used parsley instead.Can't wait to try the other recipes!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Missed a major inflammatory food group!
This book starts out great with the discussion of how food can inflame the body with an unbalanced intake of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids.However the authors must be unaware that all grains, legumes and most seeds have a 20:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 making them inflammatory.Several recipes in the book are then inflammatory because of the grain.This is a tough pill to swallow but it appears that the human genome functions better with a balanced 1:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids and this genetic trait was in place before agricultural practices which led to grain consumption and more recently seed oils which are very inflammatory.Foods consumed prior to agriculture would have been fruits and vegetables, wild game, fish and moderate portion of nuts. Ironically all these foods have a well balanced ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids.Go Paleo!!

1-0 out of 5 stars a bit deceitful
Although there are good recipes in the book, I am amazed the authors endorse the use of canola oil and margarine.Canola oil comes from the rape seed, which is part of the mustard family of plants. Rape is the most toxic of all food-oil plants. Like soy, rape is a weed. Insects will not eat it; it is deadly poisonous! The oil from the rape seed is a hundred times more toxic than soy oil.
Canola is a semi-drying oil that is used as lubricant, fuel, soap and synthetic rubber base, and as an illuminant for the slick color pages you see in magazines. It is an industrial oil and does not belong in the body!
Margine isa synthetic food and a hydrogenated oil.Loads of literature to support eliminating it from your diet.
I use the recipes but make substitutions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative Book
I learned so much from reading the information about nutrition that Rowe and Davis share in this book.The recipes are delicious and easy to follow, and the illustrations are enticing.I'm looking forward to trying more of the recipes and learning to incorporate healthy foods in my everyday meals. I strongly recommend this book. ... Read more

I have been suffering from Fibromyalgia for over 15 years.Once I went on the ER4YT diet, my over-all health improved vastly... except I still suffered occasionally from Fibromyalgia.I bought this book, followed the diet & went on the 12 week arthritis protocol that he recommended.Not only did the pain subside during the 12 weeks, but also for the past year it has been much more manageable.The most difficult thing was finding the supplements in the dosages that Dr. D'Adamo recommended.Through the help of the internet I found all of them - most of them from Vitacost.com.It still amazes me that after a year of going on this protocol I am still doing so well.I am an O non-secretor. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars the doctors proven home cure for arthritis
PLEASE try this program as I did 27 years ago at 30 after having to resort to gold injections and then relapsing.Prior to the book I was bedridden for 4 months-friends had to pry my jaws open to brush my teeth.
After two days on the program I could get out of bed, much experimentation
and TIME later, I was A-1! The "friend of an arthritic person",who panned this approach hasn't a clue about pain or time things may take for some people. At their request I have spoken at the Arthritis Foundation and learned some people just cannot try to do without doctors and meds.I had to beg my doc to stay with me so I could have the proper blood tests.PLEASE TRY THIS-"arthur" visits when I overdo, but it is NOT "my"
arthritis-I wouldn't own it for anything.Good luck and good living to you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gave Me My Life Back!
At the time this book came into my hands, I was 19 years old and in excruciating all-over joint pain from the rheumatoid arthritis I'd had since aged nine. I was bed-ridden at the time and hardly wanting to eat but I started the diet recommended in the book and within three weeks I was pain free and have remained so. I went on to become a journalist and mother. I only wish that I had had this book as a resource when I was nine and those awful years of pain and joint damage could have been avoided. I am totally grateful to the author of this book and highly recommend it to those searching for arthritis self-help knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars No Starch = Pain Free
After living with debilitating pain for so many years I am very pleased with the results after having removed starch from my diet. I used to be in constant pain and barely able to walk (despite strong medication), whilst now I can actually run again :-).. and no more need for the pain killers / NSAID's [woohoo].

By the way, the mechanism involved in the diet involves eliminating starch, thus the diet now referred to as the 'No Starch Diet' or the 'Low Starch Diet'.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rigorous scientific validity
As an ank spon sufferer, low starch diets are a tremendous help

1-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing
The cover leads one to believe that there is a 'plan' for beating arthritis in 28 days--no.--- only a plan that a clever and catchy title will sell a book. I have done a lot of reading,and there are diet guidelines for reducing arthritis symptoms (acid/akaline balance in food, especially from the Edgar Cayce readings). There is no 'list' of foods to eat,or avoid in this book. The book is 90% recipies---ones that do look very tasty,but ones that could be used for any 'healthy' diet. I mean, if you ate this way a number of diseases;cancer,heart disease etc. would be eased, so why is this book particular to arthritis? As for the '28 day hype'--you would have to follow all the 3 meals a day recipies--for 28 days. Does anyone have the time to follow recipies for 3 meals a day every day--I mean these are all recipies--no guidelines as in 'eat any fruit-- except,don't eat red meat" etc.The recipies are all for 4 portions--so what if you live alone,no one else has arthritis in your household--I guess you justfreeze the rest. They also advise "excercise"--but don't list or show any.Since they do not give you a list of foods to avoid or encourage--how is this to help your arthitis??Only that this is a low-calorie/fat plan--so you could lose weight and that would be less strain on your joints.There are so many other better books out there for arthritis--I learned nothing new here--except that some people will do anything to sell books. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Information, run of the mill recipes
The first chapters of this book are informative for a newly diagnosed person. I have not broken a dish since using the suggestions here. The ideas for energy conservation are explicit and helpful.

The recipe section reminds me of old cookbooks. Very run of the mill. Yes, I know some foods may not be appropriate for us but let's have tasty versions of those we can eat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for any inflamatory illness
It is easy to find books that offer diet suggestions for certain illnesses, but it is very difficult to find a book that offers recipes which are simple to make with foods that are easy to find.I also liked the illustrations on how to minimize the strain in making meals.A simple book with great information.

3-0 out of 5 stars I have mixed feelings about this book.
I perused this book carefully because I want informationon diet and FMS.There are good definitions of FMS, but the info and recipes seem to begeared toward reducing the "inflamation" of arthritis. As Iunderstand it, FMS is not a condition of inflamation. Thus, my confusion.For forms of inflamatory arthritis conditions it looks excellent. I'd liketo note that I have seen other books that tag FMS on to Arthritis in theirtitles or covers and don't seem to have much specific to FMS. A sellingtechnique, I suppose. This book is attractive and seems very good forarthritis, but not specific for FMS. ... Read more

Product Description
A small book stressing the importance of the part Diet does play in causing most arthritic pains. It also deals with certain points gained from experience which ought to be useful both to doctors and patients, for example, how to treat Shingles, early, and have no pain. Though many of the recommendations are perhaps old-fashioned, they are still in use because they have been found to be useful. That after all is the benefit of experience."What the ignorant and most doctors and nurses to know know it that there is an optimum position for burping. Babies should always be burped on the right shoulder which allows the gas to escape. On the left shoulder the infant will vomit.""Beaver Fever" is well known in the Canadian Rockies. And, again in the Himalayas . Those clear mountain streams are not, as supposed, filled with pure water but are Nature's lavatory.Brittle, Dry Nails: These are always improved by painting them daily or, when possible, with Almond Oil.Stones in the Kidney may be removed usually by eating that White Radish (Saphanus Rativus L.) called Moolie, or DAIKON in Japan. Taken three times a day as a soup, steamed or raw in a salad the stones will appear within a few days. (Depending of course on how big and how long they have been there!) For this purpose it is mentioned also in Nicholas Culpeper's Herbal of 1653. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Methods that work
I have attended Dr Mansfield's clinic in England and know that his methods for treating rheumatoid arthritis are effective. I no longer need anti-inflammatory drugs and as long as I avoid things to which I am allergic, I have little or no arthritis. He is a well respected doctor and I thoroughly recommend this book. I had bought the previous edition and it helped me regain a normal life. This newer book is even more comprehensive and can help many people. I recommend it to everyone I meet who has R.A.
