Format: Paperback
My first question was, "Do we really need another book on how to eat healthy?" The answer is: We do if it is like this one. If you have seen programs like Food Inc.: A Participant Guide: How Industrial Food is Making Us Sicker, Fatter, and Poorer-And What You Can Do About It or Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal, you already know how our food supply affects our health. Consider that health conditions such as allergies, skin disorders, asthma, heart disease, arthritis and all other conditions ending in "itis" are on the rise. The normal response is to go to the doctor and get a prescription. That only treats the symptom and may cause more problems than they solve. I'm in favor of any solution that avoids drugs.

In Meals that Heal, registered holistic nutritionist Julie Daniluk shows how many of these health challenges are linked to inflammation including coronary disease, obesity, dementia, Alzheimer's, infections, allergies, and "virtually all autoimmune diseases." If the doctor's diagnosis ends in 'itis,' then by definition, inflammation is involved to change our immune response through diet.

Ms. Daniluk explains how food becomes the building blocks of your body so you can provide powerful healing or create inflammation depending on your choices. People may have food sensitivities that make their inflammatory condition worse. People are not the same, though, so there is only the process of elimination that will help determine which food is causing the sensitivity.

I cannot rave enough about this book. In the 8 weeks since I started on this plan I've lost 18 pounds, my reflux is gone, my headaches are gone, my mood and energy levels are significantly increased, I'm sleeping better AND my c-reactive protein (inflammatory marker - normal is less than one) has dropped from 6.1 to 1.7. The plan makes sense and is easier to do than any other one I've tried - eliminate slowly. Don't try to do it all at once! Yes, it's hard to stop eating gluten, dairy AND soy, but you can do it. Use the shopping list she includes. I have never felt healthier and I know I've got a long way to go with losing weight but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel now.

I especially say try the herbal teas. Be careful, though. Some of the descriptions of taste aren't exactly accurate. Burdock root? By itself tastes like boiled tree bark. But if you find an herb shop that mixes their own teas (there's a great one named Phoenix Herb) that include burdock but don't taste like it, you're golden.

Seriously, buy this book. Follow it. Cook from it.

Update: It's been 6 months. I've lost 57 pounds and have gone from a size 16 to a size 8. All of my inflammatory markers are now in the normal range. I am energetic and happy beyond words. I've been able to cut the dose of my chronic pain medication in half without a significant increase in my pain level. I'm hoping to go off of it altogether in another 3 months. I cannot recommend this book enough.

Pain. It's something that so many of us live with. We try to tolerate it. But sometimes "favoring" the painful body part puts the body even further out of alignment, leading to further pain. Or we pop pills -- knowing these aren't healing the underlying problem, which may in fact be getting worse. And the pills themselves may be hurting our organs. So, what are we supposed to do about the pain that ails us?

Daniluk proposes a solution: change your diet. How is diet connected to pain? Well, first there's the connection between inflammation and pain. So much pain is due to inflammation. Yes, inflammation hurts. She breaks the causes of inflammation into the following causes: Toxicity, infection, allergy, nutritional imbalance, injury, and emotional trauma or stress.

The wrong food can cause or exacerbate most of the above problems. And because emotions/stress and food are so connected (ever heard of emotional eating?), psychological issues can lead to bad eating, and vice versa. Which leads to more inflammation. Which leads to more pain.

Daniluk shows the way out of this agonizing cycle. That means cutting out certain foods. What are the culprits? Bad fats. That means avoiding unhealthy animal and vegetable fats, including most fatty meat, cream cheese and fatty cheese, and margarine and most salad dressings. It also means avoiding most vegetable oils. Plus, we should avoid frying food. Steaming, baking, and boiling are preferred.

The recipes she offers are reasonable. They won't require scavenger-hunting through specialty stores. They don't use a ton of ingredients and don't take forever to cook. And they are reasonably tasty.

The catch? No pain means giving up inflammation causing foods. Sound tough? It can be.

I recently signed up for Book Nook, a Hay House Blogger Community through which I am invited to review books that are sent to me... for free! Y'see, while I'm an avid writer, I needed some motivation to get back into reading again... I have joined many a book club only to be the nerd in the corner who can't stay awake past the first page, no matter how enticing the story-line is. But I love the idea of it. I love getting whisked away by a good writer. And this gives me another platform to practice giving my thoughts and opinions a VOICE. So I thought I'd give this a shot... which means that every other month or so, I'll be reviewing a new book... sharing with you my own personal relationship to the stories and thoughts therein. I hope you enjoy them.... and that you dare to share you own reflections as well!

It shouldn't be of any surprise that to start off, I'd choose a book that would go along with my current wellness journey.... Yes, I guess you could say I'm a bit obsessed these days. Meals That Heal Inflammation, by Julie Daniluk. I mean, who can resist that healthy looking woman on the front cover holding a pineapple, and the fact that it has over 120 recipes strewn throughout its pages? (I'm ALWAYS looking for good recipes)

Ms. Daniluk reiterated for me almost everything my nutritionist has had me exploring for over a year now (and believe you me, that's no small feat!)... I've read a good many books about this very subject, but I must say, as I read her thoughts about how and why inflammation expresses itself in the body, I found myself thinking, here's someone who speaks my language (versus the complex scientific jargon that I then have to research myself to fully understand).
