Anti-Inflammation Diet (useful for all patients with pain anywhere in the muscles, joints, tendons associated with warmth or swelling):

Appropriate for men and women of all ages - and especially beneficial for children - the book will help people learn to eat and cook healthily. Most of the dishes can be prepared quickly by novice cooks. - Doni Wilson ND, President of New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
