The UltraSimple Diet
Over the last decade, inflammation has become a household word. While the condition was virtually unheard of some years ago, that's all changed. Researchers pinpoint inflammation as the root of almost all health problems - from headaches to heartaches. Dr. Mark Hyman, author of the bestselling book UltraMetabolism and editor of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, has become a leader in the field of inflammation and how it affects the body.
What most people don't realize is that inflammation is a calling card for trouble. Dr. Hyman says that almost every modern disease is caused by inflammation. Regular inflammation is perfectly normal, Dr. Hyman explains. However, when the immune system shifts out of balance, inflammation goes into overdrive, wreaking havoc on the body and contributing to serious health issues.
While anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids and antihistamines are effective treatments, they don't get to the root of the problem, which is where The UltraSimple Diet comes into play.
The UltraSimple Diet is based on two key factors - fighting inflammation and battling toxicity, two conditions that make people sick and fat. People are generally unaware that triggers of inflammation include consuming too much sugar, eating excess doses of unhealthy oils and fats, hidden food allergens, not enough exercise, stress and infections.
