By Geoff Bond on October 29, 2004
Format: Paperback
Inflammation is the result of infection by germs, right? Only partly, according to Dr. Nancy Appleton -- in a completely new insight she shows how inflammation, triggered by hitherto unsuspected agencies, can also CAUSE disease.

In this impressively researched book she documents how most, if not all, degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes and many more, can be either initiated or made worse by inflammation.

What is this inflammation and why does it happen? Dr. Appleton zeros in on one major factor: food and the allergies and intolerances it provokes. In clear language she describes how the body's immune system is supposed to work and how it caves in under the pressure of the wrong foods, generating abnormal quantities of inflammatory compounds.

As the author of Lick the Sugar Habit, she comes down hard on sugar itself and all its aliases. She also singles out dairy and wheat. In handy tables she also lists the dozens of other foodstuffs that could be implicated. She highlights the paradox that it is often the food one craves that makes one sick.

In an insight that will be completely new to many people, she explains how the blood-brain barrier is made more porous by allergens, opening the brain to inflammatory compounds. These can aggravate a vast range of mood and behavioral problems including ADHD, aggression, schizophrenia and depression.

In the final part of the book she draws all the information together and puts perspective on it. She gives practical and clear guidelines to correct one's lifestyle, notably eating habits.

Nancy Appleton does an excellent job of explaining the new research that's come out about Inflammation this last year. And there is a chapter by an MD/ND who speaks to the current state of health for most people in their 30s. Being 20 yrs older than that, I can see the change in health status so many experience. Environmental Illness is the cause of much of it. Unfortunately the recommendations in Chapter 8 to Detoxify are sorely out-of-date, and will not help seriously ill people very much. Serious allergy relief is not found. Energy Medicine addresses this fairly well, but is never mentioned. A very useful tool is at the end of the book: Body Chemistry Test Kit. Still worth the read and the price.

This book is very informative and helpful about inflammation, especially related to food and allergies. The author seems to be on the cutting edge of linking diet, inflammation and degenerative diseases and how to prevent or reverse inflammation before chronic disease manifests itself. I am allergic to sulfa drugs and I can no longer tolerate much wine, probably because of the sulfites in the wine. I am understanding from this book how detrimental it is to keep consuming foods that one's body is allergic to or doesn't tolerate because it sets up a state of chronic inflammation. One can see inflammation on a thermography too!

This book has some terrific info, but I'm finding it unreadable. It's filled with grammatical and English usage errors. (Examples: inflict vs afflict, affect vs effect.) It's hard for me to take the author and the book seriously. I wonder if she's as sloppy with her facts as she is with her writing. I'm not saying she is; I just wonder. Anyway, from what I was able to wade through, it seems like there's important information in this book. Unfortunately, the book did not get the professional editing job it and its readers deserve, and as a consequence it is exasperating to try to read.

I read the author's book called Suicide By Sugar and it was excellent. I was able to kick my sugar addiction after reading it. I almost didn't buy this book because some of the reviews mentioned grammatical errors and made a such huge deal out of it. Still, I decided to give it a try and I found it to be full of important information about Inflammation and what it does to our bodies. The author does a great job of citing all of her sources which I think adds to her credibility. I think this book is a 'must read' for everyone who has any type of pain or injury and especially chronic issues. All of the medicine your doctor can prescribe is not going to fix your problem; only cover up the symptoms. This book will help you FIX the problems.

This book is fascinating. It's too bad that all doctors aren't required to read this so they could make appropriate nutritional recommendations to their patients. If people followed this type of lifestyle diet a myriad of 'chronic' diseases would disappear! Too bad that the majority of Americans will never read this book.

I am taking my time reading this information. I reread it to make sure that I don't eat anything that would cause my inflammation to act up more than it is. Wish I knew this information before having children. Thank you for having this book.
