Publisher's Summary

The following book will discuss the anti-inflammation diet and what it can do to help or inhibit physical and mental health. The book will discuss the seriousness of depression and anxiety and how inflammation can play a key role in the development of both. It will also explain the difference between acute and chronic inflammation, as well as how each interacts with the rest of the body. This book describes what they are and why the body triggers each response. What effect each has on the mind will be discussed, as well. It also discusses how nutrition plays a significant role in the body's inflammation.

This book will provide background information on Dr. Andrew Weil, the creator of the anti-inflammation diet. The chapters break down the components of the diet and explain each aspect, such as calorie count, guidelines, and meal examples. Also included is a list of anti-inflammation foods and what categories of micro-nutrients, fats, carbohydrates, or proteins they fall under.

This book also discusses how pro-inflammatory foods can contribute to depression, anxiety, and stress. Additionally, it provides the breakdown of what is in unhealthy foods that make them so detrimental to the body.

There is also a chapter on the connection between intestinal health, hormones, and the brain. It will provide examples of how the microbes that reside in the stomach and mental health seem to be two sides of the same coin and how repairing one may also repair the other. It also explains the other ways that gut microbes benefit the body, mind, and life of the person from which they reside.

After listening, you'll have the tools to make the best dietary choices possible, and as a result, you can have the healthiest body and the happiest mind possible!

VERY BASIC. I learned nothing.

if you already know how to eat unprocessed, you may not learn anything either. It sounds more like an ad for Andrew Weil. I was looking for something more scienced based. (which this claims, but does not back up). waste of my time.

I am mostly happy with this cookbook

I wish she would have included the potassium and phosphorus levels in the recipes nutrition information as I have chronic kidney disease as well as type two diabetes, and fibrillation. It would have helped a great deal.

everyone should listen to this audiobook.

It plans leftovers into the meal plan. The recipes have been easy to follow. And more importantly, my husband is feeling a difference in his general health from cleaner eating! We are into the second week and have enjoyed all of the recipes so far. I think this book has jump started a healthier way of eating for our family.

everyone should listen to this audiobook.

The authors make what could be challenging for most of us completely doable. They lay out a simple to follow plan including tips for how to prepare for change. Another plus is that most of the recipes contain less than eight ingredients.

I haven't felt as if I'm restricted in my diet in any way. Clear and accurate instructions make it possible for me to follow all the offered ideas just the way I'm supposed to.

excellent book


This book is a very helpful resource for reducing or avoiding inflammation. It was helpful to be able to show my elderly relatives instead of me just trying to tell them.

This is absolutely the best one

It had a lot of useful information nicely condensed into one concise location. And although I'm usually a bit of a "recipe snob", I do believe I'll be trying many of the ones in this book. Highly recommend!

Great Buddhism Introduction

The beginning of the book offers lots of useful information about the effects of chronic inflammation on the body, ways to reduce inflammation, foods to enjoy and avoid to fight inflammation, and more. Next, there's a handy two-week meal plan to get you started on an anti-inflammatory diet.
