5 Stars Very helpful book in getting at the source of diseases
As a Radio Talk Show Host, I have interviewed Jack Challem over many years. He has been spot on in following the inflammation process and what it does to the body. His latest updated book, The Inflammation Syndrome is a great guide. So many of my listeners are confused as to what to eat and what vitamins to take. Is it a high protein, low carb diet, high fiber or do you trust the governments food pyramid? What is a healthy diet today? Do you believe what the clerk at the health food store claims?
Challem carefully combs studies from all over the world. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition, vitamins and minerals. Some may disagree with his advise he gave out on irritable bowel syndrome. Please don’t dismiss the book just because of a small disagreement. Overall, his book is extremely helpful in designing a dietary plan that addresses individual needs and health issues. I find the supplement recommendations very helpful from an expert who receives no compensation from the industry.
I endorsed his book on my show.
Cheers to good health.

5 Stars Excellent book based on solid science
This is an excellent book based on solid, well-researched information. Challem explains complex ideas in an easy to understand way: about how inflammation is the underlying cause of so many diseases. Better yet, he explains how dietary changes and a few select supplements can serve as anti-inflammatories – without the risk of medications. It was great to have some recipes available in the book to get started on a new, better way of eating.
5 Stars The Inflammation Syndrome
I found Jack’s book to be an interesting and easy to follow guide to managing inflammation. I’m both a supplement user and a cook, so I especially found Jack’s recommendations for dietary supplements and recipes helpful.
2 Stars Some good advice, some bad science
It is true that inflammation is the initial cause of many ailments (and what causes the inflammation in the first place is extremely multi-factorial including diet, lifestyle, exposure to environmental toxins, etc…); however, there are some claims made in this book as truth that I have yet to see as supported by science. No doubt changing your diet to his recommendations will help your health, but other books offer good advice without the person having to wonder whether the claims are true or not. It’s enough mis-information presented that it makes me want to doubt the whole book. Marion Nestle’s What to Eat and Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto are two good books if you want to improve your health with food.
