Avoiding and Healing Inflammation
Original title: Prévenir et Soigner l’inflammation
Whether it is painful or goes unnoticed, when it becomes chronic, inflammation can not only impact our daily comfort but also become a serious risk to our health. What if your diet could offer the best chances of healing? This book explains the diseases that make every-day-life difficult, because chronic inflammation has changed the way tissues and organs function.
The author mentions arthritis, rheumatoid polyarthritis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, inflammatory illnesses of the colon, psoriasis, obesity, cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Using real examples and simple explanations about physiopathology and inflammation, the author lists the factors that favour or enhance risks of chronic inflammation. She explains the way diagnosis are made and what traditional medicine offers as cures.
Dr Catherine Lacrosnière leaves special room to talk about the foods that make treatments more effective and offer the best chances of healing or stabilising.
