Stop Inflammation Now!
A Step-by-step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation-- the Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related ConditionsBook - 2004
A nuclear cardiologist defines the twelve triggers of inflammation-the true cause of heart disease and a host of additional serious health conditions. Despite huge advances in medical science, heart disease and its related conditions continue to be the number- one killer in the United States. Dr. Richard Fleming decided to find out why. Through extensive research he discovered the immune system was the crucial piece missing from the diagnosis and treatment equation. He saw that when key elements in the blood became elevated they triggered a dangerous inflammatory chain reaction. These elements, ranging from bacteria to triglycerides, when combined with a high-protein diet and sedentary lifestyle, will cause arterial inflammation, a damaging, debilitating, and sometimes deadly condition. Stop Inflammation Now!explains all twelve triggers of inflammation-causes, interactions in the system, and the best ways to combat or, when necessary, to embrace them-and provides a clear, concise plan for prevention, treatment, and restoration of vital functions without prescription medication or surgical intervention. Dr. Fleming's research, and successful treatment of thousands of patients, has proven that once inflammation is reduced via simple and easy-to-implement diet and lifestyle changes, good health can be restored forever.
