Barnard explores a variety of medical conditions, such as migraines, arthritis, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, herpes, sickle-cell anemia, kidney stones, urinary infections, and back, chest, breast, menstrual, and cancer pain. For each, Barnard explains the causes of the pain and what dietary changes are likely to alleviate it, with exercise and lifestyle recommendations. Barnard backs up his points with 30 pages of research citations.
Most of the recipes are quick to prepare, and include an elimination diet to avoid trigger foods. A nutritional breakdown (calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, and sodium) accompanies each recipe. Following the advice in this book will not only relieve your pain, but increase your overall health. Highly recommended. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think the book is a wonderful addition to the growing library of information about how foods affect our health.

I have prescribed a similar diet for my patients for many years, and like Dr. Barnard, the most frequent response I get, after often dramatic results, is "Why? Why didn't any doctor ever give me this information before?"
I know why; its because too much money is being made by the pharmaceutical companies, the meat and dairy industries, and yes, the medical profession by keeping people dependent on their products. If you or someone you love suffers from arthritis, severe menstrual pain, migraines or any other chronic pain, you could do nothing better than to read this book and heed its advice.

I was astounded. Equally exciting, I feel healthier than I ever have before. As an avid cyclist and runner, I had thought I'd reached my peak shape, but I actually cut almost two minutes off my personal best time for a ten mile run...and long, hilly bike rides have never been easier. The ten pounds I've lost as a result of following Dr. Barnard's recommendations may have a lot to do with it, but I also just feel more energetic and have much less pain, even on hard runs and bike rides.
When Foods That Fight Pain arrived in the mail, I first read the back of the dustcover and it had rave reviews by a veritable who's who in medicine: Dr. Benjamin Spock, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Henry Heimlich, the editor of a major medical journal, and others. That, along with the 30 pages of extensive medical references sure make it clear that Dr. Barnard is on solid scientific ground. Every recommendation he makes is backed up in the medical literature.
The book is very well written, and Dr. Barnard has a knack for explaining detailed medical concepts in a very clear and understandable manner. There's also a dose of humor thrown in here and there that makes it an easy, fun read.
The recipes are great. They are easy to prepare and delicious. The Summer Vegetable Stew and Mexican Corn Salad are particularly yummy. As the family cook, I was concerned it may be tough to please everyone and learn how to follow the diet changes, but it was a snap.Read more ›
