Course Description

Using current medical research this approx. 2-hour course takes you through why inflammation occurs, what diseases are related to it (you'll be surprised HOW MANY - including: arthritis, psoriasis, eczema, gout, asthma, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn’s, colitis, diabetes, certain cancers, lupus, celiac disease, Multiple Sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and other autoimmune diseases), and then this course moves on to teach you how to prevent and deal with inflammation using natural methods such as diet and lifestyle.  Learn what foods trigger inflammation and the best nutrients and supplements to fight it.  Discover the most common myth related to nightshades, and other foods often believed to be inflammatory.

When you finish this course not only will you have a full color cookbook specifically designed for inflammation and auto immune disorders, but with over 10 cooking videos you will have skills to cook the right foods for great health. You will be able to create delicious meals that follow the recommendations of health professionals in preventing and dealing with disease.
