Inflammation is one of the hottest topics in medicine and is increasingly being seen as the culprit behind many of the diseases associated with aging. This book makes consumers aware of the connection and offers a program for reducing inflammation and enjoying good health. Inflammation is the body's fundamental way of protecting itself. It happens so frequently that we barely notice it at times. A scrape, a mosquito bite, a splinter - all cause redness and swelling due to the body's rush to destroy dirt and germs and repair damage. But what seems like a good thing can harm the very tissues it is meant to heal. Heart disease, arthritis, Type II Diabetes, Alzheimer's Disease, Osteoporosis, and even some cancers, are all increasingly being tied by researchers to injury caused by inflammation in the body. In The Inflammation Cure, William Meggs, MD, Ph.D., well-known and respected in the field as a founder of the theory of neurogenic switching (related to inflammation), explains the role inflammation plays in aging and health, what cutting edge research is revealing, and why it is vitally important that inflammation be minimized.The book outlines a complete head-to-toe wellness program for keeping inflammation under control to prevent the diseases of aging. The program includes anti-inflammatory foods, nutritional supplements, weight control, medications that can help and medications to avoid, as well as environmental contributors (such as “sick offices” and common household cleaners) and what to do about them.
