BUY, BORROW OR STEAL THIS BOOK. YOUR BODY & BRAIN WILL THANK YOU!
“…what you really need to translate for people — those for whom Western medicine has done all it can — is this: all the science is pointing to the fact that your brain is your last best cure.” – Anastasia Rowland-Seymour, MD, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Johns Hopkins (in a quote to author Donna Jackson Nakazawa). Have you reached the limits of what conventional medicine has to offer you? Then, as it was for award-winning journalist and author Donna Jackson Nakazawa, your brain might be your last best cure. It certainly was for me. I was doing everything right but still my recovery had stalled. I had made so much progress, but something was holding me back. Me. Or to be more precise, my past, and my inability to navigate the present without an overwhelming stress response to everyday, unremarkable, events. I noticed something odd… I wasn’t the only one. It seemed that almost ALL the women I came across in forums and those who wrote to me for help, had some kind of trauma in their past. While common sense tells us that trauma and stress can cause illness, I wanted to know the why of it. And then Donna’s book dropped into my lap. She not only serves up the science behind the trauma/immune disorders in women (and men), but offers well researched, irrefutable scientific evidence, showing us that we can change our brains and take charge of the course of our illness, or at the very least, how to tune out of the “pain channel” and into the “joy channel”. Since reading this book, the dietary changes I have made (lowering my inflammation bucket) have had all the more impact on my overall health and I feel better than I ever have before. If you are only going to read one book on healing or just one book this year, please make itThe Last Best Cure. It will change your life. Donna’s book, the Last Best Cure, documents her year-long quest to heal herself, aided by Anastasia Rowland-Seymour, her wonderful MD at Johns Hopkins, and shares the groundbreaking neuroscience on how mind-body therapies such as meditation, yoga and acupuncture awaken the healing potential of our brains, change our biology, and revitalize our cells and our health. Anti-cookbook, while it doesn’t treat any conditions, due to its high nutrient, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory ingredients, has been instrumental in helping me feed myself on a limited diet. It features a six page list of antihistamine and anti-inflammatory foods. Take a peek at my low histamine and antihistamine cookbooks for more high nutrient recipes.
