Nutrition is fast becoming a powerful tool in handling health issues of all kinds, and Kristine Napier is in the forefront of teaching people how to eat to achieve the maximum advantage. People with chronic illness have two nutrition needs. First they need to eat to get the edge on their illness, then they also must avoid the health problems common to everyone, such as heart disease and obesity.Moreover, people with a chronic illness are often energy-and /or pain-challenged, making shopping for and cooking nutritious meals seem overwhelming. The genius of Power Nutrition for Your Chronic Illness is that it tells people how to shop and cook even when it's the most difficult, and provides 200 easy recipes that put nutrition theory into action.Specific diseases covered are: Alzheimer's; Arthritis (Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid, Fibromyalgia); Asthma; Epilepsy; HIV/Aids; Lupus; Multiple Sclerosis; Myasthenia Gravis; Parkinson's Syndrome; Psoriasis; Sjogren's Syndrome. There is also an entire section on nutrition for commonly used medications on a drug by drug basis, as well as information on nutrition for healing after surgery, supplements, and how to eat to prevent additional health problems such as obesity and osteoporosis.This book is a real breakthrough for the millions of Americans who manage chronic illness. It shows how excellent nutrition can be used in anyone's life, no matter what their illness or how disabled they may be.
