my favourite natural remedy for fighting chronic pain: the opium poppy ok all cynicism aside i'm kinda interested in reading this even if it looks a bit pseudo-scientific (all because something's natural doesn't mean it's better m8) but hey my mind is Open and i am really interested in plant-based remedies, but there's a lot of quackery out there so i proceed with caution
I like that this book focuses on scientific data rather than anecdotal evidence. Unfortunately since it was written in 1998, it is already somewhat outdated. I don't think that the much information in here is wrong, but a lot of research has been done on Omega oils and Vitamin D in the last dozen years that may change the content of this book.The author suggests three main strategies to manage the relationship between food and pain and I think they are good ones. 1)Keeping a lowfat vegan diet, 2 [...]
I have suffered from chronic pain since I was ten years old from a variety of conditions including Rheumatoid Arthritis, stomach ulcers, and recently (within the past 5 yrs) Fibromylagia, and stage III endometriosis. With that being said, I have easily swallowed my weight in oxycodone ten times over My Mother gave me this book, Foods that Fight Pain, hoping to offer me some knowledge on natural pain relief.I really liked this book, and the concept of using food to fight pain. I can't imagine a l [...]
New to me when I read it, and really interesting information about how various foods affect our health in many ways. The main focus is on pain. Information is given about the inflammatory and anti-inflammatory natures of various foods. Promotes a vegan diet but shows which vegan (plant source) foods can cause problems also. It’s educational about which foods to include or avoid. The facts seem to correlate with chronic and acute sufferer’s actual experiences in their pain levels. Worth readi [...]
This was recommended to me by my PT whose mother was put on one of the diets for her arthritis pain and had great results. He writes clearly and cites references for many of his conclusions. I'm going on the diet during September to see if any of the trigger foods cited are a factor in my on-going stiffness and pain. Certainly worth a try and much cheaper and easier on the body than drugs.
This book is a great dietary guide for anyone that has a chronic health condition. It teaches us how to choose foods that work with our bodies to ease pain. While I think it is a little extreme to eliminate animal and fish oils entirely in order to see a result, I think the plant-based diet that Dr. Barnard advocates for here is worth reading about.
Barnard has such an easy style of writing that makes his books a pleasure to read. Full of quality information based on research. Lots of good, doable recipes that even without going vegan, I can make small beneficial changes to my diet.Great read !
Useful information. A lot of low back pain is due to dietary issues. This book explains why. I have seen lots of low back pain. I am a neuroradiologist. This book can help a lot of people.
back pain coming from disc degeneration probably starts as plaque blocked arteries for the discs
I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/12851277
Very informative but a little too pushy into vegan diets. I appreciate knowing what foods will help with my pain but I don't need to change my entire diet to something I am uncomfortable with.
very helpful, have loaned this one to a friend already- what we eat can have major consiquences on how we feel and therefore on who we are!
For anyone that is dealing with chronic pain conditions this may expand your knowledge, capacities and bring you relief! Carpal Tunnel and beyond
Very different approach to pain relief
