So the last year and a half my life has been a constant battle to fight off the effects of Fibromyalgia and stave off the constant dull ache of chronic pain and inflammation.

In desperate times I am not averse to trying anything ... anything at all.  I have recently on a friends advice even found some relief in sound therapy LISTEN HERE. Whilst I will never compromise my beliefs (Christian) I am also open to the unconventional when it comes to the promise of a pain-free day.

Lately, I have been struggling to be inspired by food, or even finding food which is both appetizing and anti-inflammatory at the same time. That is until I went to the most amazing book launch. I got to attend informative talks on how my diet is in fact linked to my DNA and how my body responds to certain foods better than others. (Man, I wish I could afford a DNA Analysis test).

GENES TO PLATE - A new generation nutrition

Can I hear a drumroll, please ... enter a new era of eating.

GENES TO PLATE takes nutrition to a whole new level by looking at 4 health connections to food and our DNA. These include detoxification, methylation, oxidative stress and inflammation.

This the GENES TO PLATE recipe book gives you insight into the body and optimum nutrition and is jam-packed with tried and tested recipes.

What are these health concerns you ask?

1. DETOXIFICATION
Is your bodies natural cleaning service. When this is out of whack you will experience low energy, chronic fatigue, weight gain, headaches, brain fog and more ...
2. METHYLATION
Is a chemical action involved in just about every process in the body. When this is out of whack you will experience heart disease, stroke, mood disorders, premature ageing and mental degeneration and more ...
3. OXIDATIVE STRESS
This is akin to a human being rusting from wear and tear. When this is out of whack you will experience heart disease, cardiovascular disease, premature ageing, age-related disorders, cancer, and inflammation and more ...
4. INFLAMMATION
Chronic inflammation is associated with every chronic disease known. What when this is out of whack? Heart disease, eczema, autoimmune disease, cancer, bowel disorders and much more ...
For a truly informative guide to health and healthy eating you really want to spoil yourself with this book. It has more than 100 recipes to help you get your body back into shape and fighting fit.

There are recipes to suit every palate and lifestyle and most of all they are tasty, I often make the above Quinoa salad and all my guests have raved about it ... (in fact, I must have sold at least 20 books alone ... he he he).

Find your copy at Wellness Warehouse or over her at CTG Centre you won't regret it.  Consider it to be the best R300 investment you will have made on yourself this year ... go on, get it!

I wish I could say that I am all better, but the battle continues. I can, however, say that it is a far healthier and much tastier journey. My food no longer has a negative impact and it no longer includes a wealth of inflammation-causing foods!

This recipe book paired with DNA Analysis truly is the missing piece in many of our puzzles. Read more about it when you purchase your copy and be prepared to be blown away.

Happy munchies ya'll!!
