From the Author
Modern-day scientific advances have made a great difference to our lives. Industry is booming, new cleaning fluids make housework a breeze and sophisticated personal care products give us that important feel-good factor. The bad news is that unfortunately, these marvellous advances are slowly poisoning our bodies, for the toxins we ingest from all of the above gradually weaken our immune systems. The result is headaches, tiredness, a lack of energy, poor sleep, poor bowel function, aching muscles and joints - and, increasingly, chronic disease. This situation is compounded by the fact that the nourishment with which our bodies are provided is often loaded with harmful chemicals. Our bodies have barely changed, in a genetic or physiological sense, since the days of the ancient hunter-gatherer. Our foodstuffs are very similar, too. What has changed, and dramatically, is the environment in which our foodstuffs are grown, and the chemical colourings, flavourings and preservatives which are added. And sadly our bodies just cannot cope. Nowadays food is grown on land laden with weed-killer and pesticides (organophosphates). However, organophosphates - which are also used liberally in animal husbandry - were originally developed to attack the central nervous system in order to kill for purposes of warfare. It is no wonder then that diseases involving central nervous system disruption are rapidly increasing. One such disease is fibromyalgia. Its a sad fact that conventional medications merely suppress the symptoms of fibromyalgia, rather than addressing the underlying problems. Maybe one day scientists will find a cure - a pill or a potion that will miraculously energise sufferers, that will end the pain, the poor sleep, the memory and concentration problems, the food and chemical intolerances etc. However, until that day arrives, the best option is a tailor-made diet, using organically-produced foods.
Food is the finest medicine we can put into our bodies, it is the best means of influencing health. Not only does food keep us alive, it also works to repair and regenerate the tissues, warding off further disease and allowing a longer, more fruitful life. There is no doubt that powerful medications and treatments are invaluable in a ife-threatening situation, for correcting congenital abnormality etc., but using drugs to suppress long-standing symptoms is merely a temporary solution.
Because certain foods act on certain parts of the body, it has been possible to devise a diet which targets the problem areas in fibromyalgia. Consequently, this book describes the foods which help strengthen the immune system, the central nervous system and the endocrine system (hormones) - all of which are problem areas - and it explains how to overcome the food intolerances and toxic build-up which are perhaps universal in this disease. The nutritional supplements known to be beneficial in treating the condition are also outlined, as is the important 21-day detoxification programme. The second half of the book comprises of healing recipes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Informative but very tricky. The author must have someone very kindly willing to cook for her. Having the energy to prepare all those meals is not something that a lot of sufferers have. I'm trying this but I'm struggling to keep up with preparing three meals a day from scratch.

It contradicts some of the information in other books and on websites. Take what you want from this book. It hasn't become a bible to help me manage my condition. I believe that Fibromyalgja is more of a personal journey, this may work for you.

Very helpful. This books has a lot of sound advise which has helped me to cope with this condition. There is life with fibromyalgia.
More harmful than helpful. If you want to rattle like a pill bottle, more than likely suffer a vitamin induced overdose and live an unreasonable life by avoiding toxins,...Read more
