Anti-Arthritis, Anti-Inflammation Cookbook: Healing through Natural Foods by Gary Null, Ph.D. is the preeminent recipe book for healing arthritis and pain, containing more than 270 anti-arthritis, anti-inflammation recipes to repair conditions and diseases of inflammation. Because arthritis and inflammation are conditions largely perpetuated by the high-fat, high-sugar, chemically laden Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), our recipes utilize the purest of ingredients while maximizing nutritional benefit and accommodating individuals with food sensitivities; all of the dishes included in this book are vegan vegetarian, and therefore dairy-free, while a high percentage are raw (uncooked) and gluten-free. Accompanying our recipes are over 300 beautiful photographs to show you that natural healing foods have a certain place in the world of aesthetics and artistic presentation.
If you, like millions of others, are determined to feel better, and to prevent and reverse diseases like arthritis, cancer, diabetes and heart disease, devour the contents of this book and make its delicious offerings the mainstay of a new eating program…your health and life depend on it!
For years, I’ve worked with some of America’s finest chefs to create an outstanding collection of delicious and wholesome vegan recipes. My goal in writing the Anti-arthritis, Anti-inflammation Cookbook is to share with you the very best creations from my kitchen, which will not only dazzle your taste buds, but also enhance your health in powerful ways. From comforting savory soups and inventive salads to mouth-watering entrees and decadent yet guilt-free desserts, the recipes in this book will surely cause family and friends to tell you that “health food never tasted so good.” This cookbook is a wonderful guide for anyone looking to transition from the unhealthy staples that define the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) to foods that truly satisfy and energize the body. It’s also a fantastic resource for longtime vegetarians and vegans who are seeking creative and appetizing new recipes to add to their repertoire.
More than ever, Americans are becoming aware of the profound connection that exists between the foods we eat and our health. Thankfully, a growing number of consumers are demanding that their food be produced organically without the use of genetic engineering or chemical pesticides. Many are choosing to take charge of their health by turning away from conventional treatments and pharmaceuticals and embracing the old adage of “let thy food be thy medicine.” As individuals become increasingly mindful of their dietary choices, I’m frequently asked by them to share some of my favorite recipes for health.
Although these original recipes were developed by gourmet chefs, each of them has been tested to make sure that anyone – even those without professional training – can prepare these meals at home.
Before you begin cooking your way to optimum health, it is important that we examine the connection between diet and good health. Here we will discover what inflammation is, where it comes from and how it affects our well-being. We also speak about one of the most notable of all diseases of inflammation, arthritis.
Because arthritis is a multi-factorial disease, I have written the companion book Reverse Arthritis and Pain Naturally: A Proven Approach to a Pain-free Life to explore the many causes of arthritis and to present a protocol for prevention and healing that includes the wonderful foods you will find in this recipe book. As we’ll see, choosing to follow an anti-inflammatory diet may well be one of the most important decisions you could ever make.
