Definitely start with these books to guide you through your journey to heal.
Kathryne herself emailed me with helpful advice that supported this program. To get over IBS or Chrone's disease, this book not only tells her story, but also gives info and recipes how to do it. Thank you Kathryne, for your little book that has helped me and so many people!!!
As a physical therapist, I had tried everything I knew: physical therapy, osteopathy, homeopathy, prolotherapy, supplementation, anti-inflammatories, etc. A doctor suspected rheumatoid arthritis because of all the inflammation in the joint. RA - no; inflammation - yes.
It's no secret that many of today's chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, some cancers, diabetes, Alzheimer's and asthma have been linked to systemic inflammation, and musculoskeletal pain is no exception.
While not every element of a program may fit everybody, the premise of this program is unquestionably sound and the advice excellent. Musculoskeletal pain and systemic inflammation are by-products of our vitamin D deficient society. Ms. Pyrtle's plan outlines a program rich in vitamin D and other nutritional factors that heal systemic inflammation.
I agree with Joanne Hay's review that '"Performance Without Pain" belongs with the growing record of experiences of those who turn their backs on modern nutritional dogma and follow the food ways of our ancestors.'
Some examples are: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration,Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats,Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats and Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods.
Such information is vital for us as a society as we continue to explore lifestyle factors that contribute to health and healing. I believe the field of nutritional medicine is in its infancy, and 10, 20, 100 years from now, people will look back on texts such as these as the foundation of modern nutrition.
