Présentation de l'éditeur

Combat silent inflammation --
the most serious health
threat you never heard of

Heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans.
Cancer is the #1 fear of Americans.
Dementia is the #1 concern of Americans.

What do these devastating illnesses have in common? All three have been linked to silent inflammation, a condition that occurs when the body's natural immune response goes awry. Silent inflammation can continue undetected for years, continually assaulting the heart, arteries, and even the brain -- and you will not even know it.

New research confirms that obesity is a primary cause of silent inflammation. And inflammation is the smoking gun that links excess body fat to today's epidemic rise in heart disease, cancer, dementia, and countless other health threats. Although the science of this relationship is complex, the bottom line is simple: If not detected and reversed, silent inflammation will devastate generations of Americans and bankrupt an increasingly stressed health care system. The medical establishment appears to be ignorant about this problem, politicians don't talk about it -- and yet virtually everyone in the country is affected by it.

In his number one New York Times bestseller The Zone, Dr. Barry Sears revolutionized the way we think about nutrition when he showed that a high-carbohydrate diet is a real risk to our health. Now, with eye-opening new research in the field of hormonal control and nutrition, Dr. Sears offers the first comprehensive plan to combat silent inflammation. This important book gives us the tools and tests we need to assess the current level of silent inflammation in our bodies -- and determine our future health.

As you'll discover, the Zone dietary plan -- including supplements of high-dose, ultra-refined fish oil -- is the best way to get the hormonal control you need to reduce inflammation. In The Anti-Inflammation Zone, Dr. Sears shows exactly what steps to follow to reduce your risk of each disease and condition, or to reverse it if you have it already -- in only thirty days. And the Zone Lifestyle Program includes a week of delicious Zone-friendly meals, easy home exercises, and important stress-reducing methods -- all of which work together to put you on a path toward wellness that will improve the rest of your life.

The day you start fighting silent inflammation is the day that you start to slow down the aging process -- and all the chronic diseases that come with it. Welcome to the Anti-Inflammation Zone -- and the return to wellness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you have Arthritis- Read this Book 25 février 2008
Par Janet W. Jesse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was lucky enough to find an internist who recommended this book to me when I went to him with symptoms of cold intolerance, fatigue, swollen and inflamed joints, thyroid disorder and a host of other symptoms. In the meantime, while awaiting the results of the tests, he advised me to read this book as it would explain inflammation in the body.

Previously I had been diagnosed with arthritis and treated for symtoms and became progressively worse. Within two weeks of implementing the changes outlined in this book; both diet changes and adding 5 grams of enteric-coated fish oil per day I had significant reduction in the swelling and inflammation.

To understand how inflammation works on the body and to reduce a host of symptoms and beliefs associated with Alzheimers, etc. this book is a valuable tool for self-enlightment. Many physicians today don't take the time to treat underlying causes of illnesses before they progress to more serious problems for the patient. Read this book and Help Yourself. It won't do any harm and may do you a world of good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life Changing 1 mars 2005
Par hawkeyestc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Few books prompt me to want to TELL THE WORLD because it may make a big difference in the quality of life of anyone who reads it. This is the first book I've read about the Zone diet, inflammation and fish oil supplements so it was all news to me and makes sense. An excellent companion book is Zone Meals in Seconds which enabled me to apply the theory using recipes, canned/frozen food, and even restaurant visits.

A high cholesterol report and watching Morgan Spurlock's movie, Super Size Me, prompted me to pursue some changes in my diet. in the month since entering the Zone I have discontinued Sudafed use (after years on it) and my husband is off of glucosamine and pain free. Plus, we are not hungry, have energy, and sleep better than before. Don't underestimate the health effects of the right food if you are currently in pain or taking any medications this book "might help, won't hurt".

3.0 étoiles sur 5 There are some good ideas in this book, but Sears' sloppy argumentation is a burden on the reader 28 août 2007
Par ninjasuperstar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
My chiropractor gave me this book to read after I complained that working out wasn't ceasing my back spasms. He wanted me to start a core workout program rather than continue with a bodybuilding workout program (after a month, the former has greatly reduced my back pain and increased strength in my back and legs), and he also thought I wasn't eating right. I began the core program immediately and started reading Dr. Sears' book, initially in earnest.

I don't think Dr. Sears is wrong about the significance of all kinds of inflammation as well as the health benefits of taking purified, high-dose fish oil. Like a good theorist, he compiles the work of many, many previous researchers and concludes an untested theory that truly deserves a massive study to confirm Sears' contentions. All of that is fine.

But I now understand why my doctor gave me the book while mentioning some reservations about its content. First and foremost, this is probably the most repetitive book I have ever read. In fact, I did not read every word, or even every chapter. I felt insulted when I would read the same ideas in every chapter, often the same sentences and phrasing. The exercise section is pathetic and possibly dangerous if you have a bad back. Don't bother reading it. The week's worth of meals is also weak, yet the exercise and meal sections together total 100 pages. Notes and appendices comprise another 100 pages. Discounting those sections, Sears leaves only 200 pages to explain what his book is about. And he's not going to make it pleasant. What's funny about repetition in a book is that it actually confuses the reader, because each time a concept is repeated, something new is added to it so that it becomes foreign again. Sears truly needs an editor.

That being said, the essence of his ideas is interesting, but I imagine there are not more than 100 pages of text worth reading here. In a nutshell, Sears believes you should take high-dose fish oil (make sure it's pure, like Eskimo-3, or a similarly reputable brand); avoid grains, rice, and pasta; eat small portions of protein at most meals; eat fruits and veggies; avoid sugar and juices; and avoid egg yolks, butter, vegetable oil, and a few other "bad" oils. That's it. Now if you really want to know why you should eat this way for the rest of your life, you'll have to read his book. Although it takes him a few hundred pages to get it out, the reasons for this diet and for taking fish oil are in there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As Usual, Cutting Edge Information 22 avril 2005
Par Montana Jack - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've been a reader and fan of Barry Sears since his first book and never fail to learn something from his books. Sears was the first to really pull together various forms of cutting edge information--caloric restriction, minimal consumption of bad grains, restricted amounts of saturated fats--and blend it into a usable, realistic program. Even if one tries other "diets" on the market, there are still take-aways from the Zone that will help optimize the value of other programs, there is that much information available. His new book provides new insights on his Zone prescription with updated research and information for the reader.

For "Love to Read", just a couple of suggestions:

- Canola Oil is extracted from rapeseed and there is some controversy as to the safety of this product. Rapeseed byproducts are used for fuel, soap, lubricants and synthetic rubber base, and in magazines to make the pages "glossy". Hence the concern over safety for human consumption.

- Dr. Sears notes that humans can only utilize a certain percentage of flaxseed oil. Some researchers note it ranges between 10 - 20%. Per Sears, you'd have to consume quite a bit of flaxseed oil to get the (current) recommendations of Omega 3 which would be detrimental to your weight.

- The UC Berkeley Wellness Letter (2003) noted that primrose oil has no proven properties and may have potentially toxic side affects in consumed in too high of dosages.

Regarding Sears "selling" his products via his books, well, that is just good ole capitalism. Body for Life/EAS, Udo Eramus/Udo's Oi, etc., are no different. ;0)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required Reading 13 janvier 2005
Par James Jewett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
January 2005

If you have never read any of the Zone books, then this is a must read. But even if you have remained current through the last book Omega Rx, there is new information presented here.

As you read through this work, it appears apparent that the author has researched this topic and does an excellent job of presenting the information in an easy to read format.

For those who tried the Zone in the past, but had difficulty with "blocks", Dr Sears has added a point system that may make it easier to follow.

Keep in mind that any changes to your medical program should be discussed with your physician, as they may change the dosages and mix of medications that you may be on. Even if you are not on any medications, it is best to work with an "open minded" Physician so that you can maximize your health benefits.

As a direct beneficiary of Dr Sear's work, it is nice to know that there is a program like this out there. It is also reassuring that the work outlined here is now being substantiated by other sources and research.

Update: June 1, 2005
I first mentioned this book to one of my bosses about 4 months ago. They have since recommended it to others. To make a long story short, my copy of this book has been on loan for some time. Some questioned it's wisdom at first, but after trying it, could't wait to recommend it to others.
