Early Acclaim for The Inflammation Syndrome ""Challem's new book hits a home run-with the latest research on what to eat and take to defeat our real number-one cause of health problems-inflammation. It's a message of the utmost importance."" -Jean Carper, New York Times bestselling author of Stop Aging Now and Your Miracle Brain, and columnist, USA Weekend magazine ""Treating and preventing inflammation has become a major priority and a breakthrough in today's medicine. Many of our most debilitating diseases can be traced to an inflammatory cause. The program Jack Challem outlines in The Inflammation Syndrome is a great first step in ridding your body of this deadly problem."" -Fred Pescatore, M.D., author of Thin For Good, The Allergy and Asthma Cure, and Feed Your Kids Well ""The Inflammation Syndrome compellingly shows how the typical Western diet promotes inflammation and disease. In a scientifically accurate and easy-to-understand manner, Jack Challem lays out the basic nutrition plan for good health and weight loss-a plan that mimics many features of the ancestral and native human diet."" -Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of The Paleo Diet ""Jack Challem has hit the bull's-eye when it comes to identifying the root cause of chronic inflammation-our pro-inflammatory Western diet. Following Challem's recommendations will not only relieve inflammation, it will lay the groundwork for optimal health."" -Jo Robinson, coauthor of The Omega Diet and principal investigator of eatwild.com ""In this book, Jack Challem focuses on inflammation, the most important underlying factor in health and disease. Anti-inflammatory strategies can slow the chronic and degenerative diseases of aging-even aging itself.

The information in this book helped me to breathe again! Feb 11, 2008
I've had asthma all my life - luckily it has been fairly well-controlled throughout adulthood. That is until I was unknowingly exposed to mold in my home. Even though the mold was remediated, I continued to experience severe, persistent asthma for over four months. I was referred to a pulmonologist and put on high doses of various types of asthma medication. I had a minimal amount of relief with these medications and still had to use a nebulizer two or three times a day.
I realized this was no way to live my life and started looking for other solutions. Thank goodness I came across Mr. Challem's book - after only one month of following his recommendations of the basic supplements (vitamin C, E, and fish oil) - I have found relief! I have not had to use my nebulizer in a week. I want to ease into the nutritional program because it will be a big change for me, but I can only imagine how great I'm going to feel after once it is implemented.
Take back control of your life, instead of letting your body do it for you!

I bought this book because I have fibromyalgia and the only thing that showed up abnormal on my tests was "inflammation". This book helped me understand what was causing my pain and the supplements to take to reduce the inflamation. I have used the suggestions in this book and Meggs' book to reduce my pain.
GOOD BOOK Nov 6, 2007
The book itself is very informative and easy to understand. It goes a long way in trying to educate a population that health begins at the cellular level and with some knowledge, health is still within our reach. Poor health can be turned around.
The delivery time was quick....I appreciate that.
The Best so far Aug 27, 2007
I have studied nutrition for 40 years and this brings it all together. It is the best book on the subject of the four that I have read. Unfortunately, it does not mention that FARMED salmon usually contains 5 to 7 times the harmful fatty acids that the same amount of wild salmon has, and that flax seed is not a good substitute for omega-3 fish oil, because humans cannot convert it efficiently. Mice and fish can and that had not been taken into accoount until recently.
Review of Challem's The Inflammation Syndrome Jun 26, 2007
In my view, even his trademarking of phrases does not distract from his comprehension of nutrition biology. Howwever, his review of supplements reminds me of the writing of automotive columnists. There are few commercial products to which he is opposed. This is a useful and well written book. I'd also highly recommend Stop Inflammation Now! by Dr Richard M. Fleming. I'd avoid the book entitled The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book by Jessica K. Black. I have no problem with her N.D. credentials, but question her biases and abandonment of scientific method to support her assertions.
