Based on the article ''Available Now, First Diet and Recipe Book to Focus on Anti-Inflammation -- Naturopath's Delicious Recipes Will Help Save Lives'' at thebizofknowledge.com Edited (with Introduction) by Dr. Don Rose -- A big buzzword in the medical/nutrition/healing communities today is inflammation. Recently, the connection between inflammation and disease has become established. Chronic inflammation within our bodies erodes our wellness, paves the path for ill health and speeds up aging. Hidden food allergies can overstimulate the immune system, causing inflammation; any inflammation in the body interferes with and slows down metabolism and our natural healing response. Unfortunately, imbalances in our standard diet cause most Americans to suffer from fairly high levels of inflammation. Older Americans are especially at risk; the effects of inflammation can manifest in seniors as heart disease, arthritis and other problems. The good news is that disease caused by inflammation can often be controlled or prevented through proper nutrition. ''The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book'' gives readers specifics on how to eat and cook in order to prevent and counter inflammation, promoting simpler and easier digestion, and offering less insult to the body by reducing intake of toxins and other difficult to digest foods. --Don Rose
Medical research shows that chronic inflammation in our bodies erodes wellness, makes us age faster, and leads to degenerative diseases. Hidden food allergies can over-stimulate the immune system, causing inflammation, which in turn slows down metabolism and our natural healing response. Unfortunately, due to imbalances in the standard American diet, most Americans suffer from fairly high levels of inflammation. As a result, many people develop chronic diseases that could be controlled or prevented through proper nutrition. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seven out of ten deaths are caused by chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, all of which have a direct connection to inflammation and nutrition.
What can be done to ensure optimal health and healing? ''The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book,'' written by leading naturopathic doctor Jessica K. Black, N.D., helps readers reclaim health by guiding them to practices that facilitate cellular regeneration rather than cellular degeneration and disease. Dr. Black educates readers on making diet choices that promote easier digestion, reduce the intake of toxins, and allow greater absorption of nutrients. The result is improved cellular function and metabolism, and possibly greater vitality and beauty -- not to mention a longer life.
Appropriate for men and women of all ages (even children), Dr. Black's book offers specifics on what to eat and how to cook in order to counter and even prevent inflammation. While providing delicious food choices, the diet eliminates allergens and reduces the intake of pesticides, hormones and antibiotic residues. It encourages whole foods; reduces processed foods, sugars, and other potential toxins such as hydrogenated oils; and encourages ample intake of vegetables and fruits for essential nutrients. Changing one's diet, preparing healthy meals, and enjoying nutritious foods were never so easy.
''The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book,'' in bookstores nationwide, will help people learn to eat and cook healthily. The first half explains the benefits of healthy eating, and provides information about the scientific background of anti-inflammation diets. The second half contains 125 easy-to-prepare recipes, a week's sample menus for summer and winter, nutritional analysis for all recipes and a food substitution chart, so that readers can modify their favorite recipes and make them healthier.

The book is read by the author accompanied by soundtrack music by composer Bjorn Lynne ( http://www.lynnemusic.com/
"There really aren"t a lot of free MP3 audiobooks out there," said Jeffrey, "which really surprises me. It"s a great way to promote paperback and hardback novels, as well as give your existing audience a new way to experience the book." Asked if he thought he was cannibalizing sales, Jeffrey said, "Absolutely not. We"re already seeing thousands of downloads each week, and new listeners are emailing me that they are purchasing paperback copies on Amazon as a direct result of listening to the podcasts."
DragonPage.com is currently featuring three free podcast audiobooks, or "podiobooks": "Morevi" by Tee Morris, "Earthcore" by Scott Sigler and "The Pocket and the Pendant" by Mark Jeffrey. New episodes for each – usually a chapter or two – are released each week.

About the Book:
ForeWord Magazine 'Book of the Year' 2005 Finalist.
From the Kirkus review:
"A sci-fi adventure steeped in the lore of an ancient civilization that will appeal to children and adults alike...driven -- and driven well -- by good old-fashioned sci-fi storytelling … "Max Quick's life drastically changes after time suddenly stops. The young man of 12 -- harassed by bullies, living as an orphan in a violent home for boys and about to be thown into juvenile hall – is mysteriously immune to this chrono-freeze. He soon discovers other children who are impervious as well -- namely, Casey Cole and Ian Keating -- and the three find themselves embarking on a thrilling quest ... Heavily inspired by the folklore of the Sumer civilization of ancient Mesopotamia, the narrative shines brightest in the chapters that focus on the re-telling of this fascinating history. Jeffrey skillfully infuses the story with authentic historical context, and then thrusts this narrative into the future by introducing aliens, time travel and massive gems with the power to stop time and minds -- and difficult task indeed, but one that he successfully accomplishes."
Amazon.com review highlights:
"...few people have jammed as much imagination in a 212-page book as Mark Jeffrey has in "The Pocket and the Pendant." "Mind-boggling creativity … frankly, the concepts often left me speechless … The invented mythology that fuels the plot of this book … was absolute genius." "A Masterful Job … Even adults will be fascinated by the theories in this tale. Author Mark Jeffrey has done a masterful job of blending facts and theories together smoothly for an amazing story that readers will find utterly delightful." "A powerful thrilling read that brings you back and forth through scientific theory, childhood, and the meaning of the universe."

Book Shows Readers How to Quickly Handle Unexpected Computer Catastrophes
Paraglyph Press recently published a most intriguing survival guide, designed to help PC users expertly deal with the unthinkable. "Surviving PC Disasters, Mishaps, and Blunders" (U.S. $29.99, 416 pp, ISBN 1-932111-98-0),
authored by PC experts Jesse Torres and Peter Sideris, is much more than a backup and recovery book. The content between its covers covers the real "digital lifestyle problems" that most computer users will face sooner or later -- from the horrific to the embarrassing, as well as the truly stupid accidents and mistakes. For a PC that is smashed, hacked, stolen, in flames, virus-laden, or just plain slow and unreliable, this book covers it all by giving the reader triage advice and tips to prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
With over 150 million new PCs being sold every year, according to IDC, and
laptops, PDAs, and other handheld devices taking over in most households
today, mishaps and accidents are occurring at an alarming rate. Just think
about how devastating a situation like dropping your laptop, having a hard
drive crash, or having your PDA stolen can be (especially if you are not
prepared for such a disaster). Today, PC users are so hooked on their
devices that any kind of disaster or mishap can really set them back. When
a PC or portable electronic device breaks, security is breached, data is
lost or compromised, or a device is lost or stolen, the first reaction is
panic. But with the expert advice in "Surviving PC Disasters, Mishaps, and
Blunders," readers can learn how to protect themselves to minimize the
chance of a problem escalating. Or if a catastrophe hits, readers can
learn how to recover from one in the shortest amount of time. "Surviving
PC Disasters, Mishaps, and Blunders" provides valuable insight on
preventative measures that can help avoid a complicated or expensive cure.
In addition to being a lifesaver, it is a great read, too!
"Surviving PC Disasters, Mishaps, and Blunders" is jam-packed with
eye-opening horror stories that will truly inspire (or really scare)
readers to be more cautious. Each chapter shows the reader how to deal
with disasters, mishaps, and blunders that can occur in areas such as
hardware, software, viruses, travel, Internet fraud, identity theft,
networks, and much more. Scenarios are presented with practical, hands-on
solutions designed to help readers solve wicked problems quickly.
Some of the disasters, mishaps, and blunders covered include:
-What to do if your PC or other device, such as a PDA, is stolen
-What to do if your PC won't boot
-What to do if your PC catches on fire
-What to do if you spill soda on your keyboard
-What to do if your network crashes
-What to do if you can't get an Internet connection while traveling
-What to do if your important data is stolen and you suffer as a result of identity theft
-What to do if you are ripped off because of Internet fraud
-What to do if you send embarrassing emails to the wrong people and your job is threatened
-What to do if someone is pestering you by sending you annoying instant messages
-What to do if you are having problems with your power adapter
-What to do if you have a bad crash and you need to quickly restore critical data
-What to do if you are caught pirating software or music (and no, paying a big fine or going to jail is not the smart outcome)
Co-author Jesse Torres says, "As an IT consultant, I see wicked PC
disasters every day. Sadly, most of these crises could be avoided with
just a little planning. My intention in writing this book was to help arm
everyone with common-sense advice on protecting their PCs and other
devices, and learning how to recover from those unexpected catastrophes
that always seem to happen at the worst possible time." Co-author Peter
Sideris adds, "I'm always amazed at how vulnerable most computer users are
to identity theft, theft of their laptops, or completely avoidable
blunders, such as letting their kids play in their office around all their
cables and wires. That's just an accident waiting to happen. This book
is a must-have for anyone who is worried that they're not ready for a
computer disaster -- or someone who runs a computing environment and needs
to prepare for the worst."
Keith Weiskamp, President and Publisher of Paraglyph, says, "After having
a PC crash recently, the first thing I did was grab a copy of "Surviving
PC Disasters," and it saved my butt. Reading the horror stories in this
book made me feel lucky my mishap was solvable, and made me really think
twice about how I use my PC, the Internet, and all of the other gadgets I
can't live without. Anyone with a PC or handheld device needs to read
this book to become aware of the very real threats of loss, theft, or
other mishaps. "Surviving PC Disasters, Mishaps, and Blunders" can save
readers a ton of money and a lot of lost time."About the Authors
