Inflаmmаtiоn iѕ a nоrmаl response bу thе bоdу tо ѕtаrt the hеаling рrосеѕѕ. Inflammation can оссur fоr mаnу rеаѕоnѕ аnd is сlаѕѕifiеd as chronic оr асutе. Although the bоdу rеgulаtеѕ inflammation automatically, chronic inflammation саn lеаd tо a host оf аdditiоnаl diѕеаѕеs. Therefore, inflаmmаtiоn should bе closely mоnitоrеd to make ѕurе it dоеѕn't реrѕiѕt longer thаn nесеѕѕаrу.

Inflammation iѕ the bоdу’ѕ wау оf protecting itѕеlf against hаrmful ѕtimuli such аѕ pathogens, tоxinѕ, or irritаntѕ. Aсutе inflammation is thе initiаl rеѕроnѕе to injurу or diѕеаѕе thаt арреаrѕ within minutes or hоurѕ аftеr еntеring the bоdу.

Thе five signs оf inflammation are раin, redness, immоbilitу, ѕwеlling, аnd hеаt. 

Aѕ blood flow tо thе affected area inсrеаѕеѕ, rеdnеѕѕ аnd hеаt арреаr. Thе greater increase in blооd аnd fluid in thе сеllѕ аnd tiѕѕuеs causes ѕwеlling. As thе body rеlеаѕеѕ сhеmiсаlѕ, thе nеrvе еndingѕ are ѕtimulаtеd, causing раin. Onсе the injurious ѕtimuli hаvе bееn removed, inflаmmаtiоn аnd аll оf itѕ ѕуmрtоmѕ will сеаѕе.

repetitive

good info, great guide. but it is PAINFULLY repetitive. how many times do you really need to hear "omega 3, fresh fruits and veggies, fatty fish etc etc"

I got it, blueberries and tumeric

Buy this, if you still think purple is a fruit.

I hate writing reviews. I wish I could rather manage writing a book. Seriously, I applaud anyone being able to to do that. Mind you, it took me 1,5 years to get my stupid bachelor thesis done! HOWEVER (you knew it was coming).

This book is nothing but a recap of what you learned in school as well all the health guides ever written about those same topics as well. I strongly recommend this book, of course, if you do not know

- smoking is bad for you, stop it
- drinking excess alcohol is bad for you
- a sedentary lifestyle is bad for you
- processed food is bad for you
- being fat is bad for you, stop it
- fruit and veg are good for you

The only new thing I learned was that microwaving your food regularly gives you brain damage (oh and this is actually MAJOR misinformation stating brain damage being caused by microwaved food as opposed to potential harms of being exposed to direct mw radiation!!!).

This book has a lot of snippets about individual substances and molecules but no bigger picture is formed from them. The basic guidelines are: stop smoking (maybe not as bad as microwaved food, though), eat or drink nothing in excess, pile up the plants on your plate, stop being fat, go take a walk, sleep and don't stress. You knew this, of course. I wish there had been a stronger emphasis on inflammation mechanics and a little more depth to what, say, the bloody blueberries actually do or why I should eat orange fruit and veg but not citrus fruit and if Omega 6 will kill me slowly, really.

On the plus side, there was a sober approach to all of this, e.g. no hype or sermoning. Yay! (This could also be due to the narrator being monotonous enough to be mistaken for a bot, even though his voice is nice.)

It provides variations to recipes

This is the best Anti-Inflammatory cookbook. It provides variations to recipes based on the approach you want to take. The recipes taste good. It's the best tool I have for making the lifestyle change I want to make.

Excited to start learning.

Just started listening to this audiobook and I'm very excited to start learning. I purchased another book in the past that I did not like. The information was very hard and I just lost interest.This book seems to focus on simple information.

Good book

Learning about submodalities was also very useful, and acquainting emotions I am very sure of with visualizations. These days I am getting hardcore into visualizing as a way to pump up my motivation levels on a daily basis, which has doubled my productivity so far – so this is a good book if you’re doing anything similar with your life.
