“An Inflammation Nation is a valuable resource that empowers the reader by using well-documented scientific studies to reveal the importance of inflammation and its influence on all aspects of our health. Dr. Pai brings an evidence-based, integrative medicine approach to the subject and writes in language that both the layman and the professional will understand. I particularly like his explanations of the various triggering mechanisms of inflammation – diet, pharmaceuticals, allergies, lifestyle and environmental factors. I highly recommend this book.”

“The book “An Inflammation Nation” authored by Dr. Sunil Pai, MD; is a subject very close to my heart. Almost 40 years of my research and the work of various other groups around the world have been put together very elegantly by Dr. Pai in the form of monograph, which is very easy to understand. This book provides evidence not just in test tube or animals but also in humans that pro-inflammatory life style can lead to various chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and neurological ailments. Most drugs provided by pharmaceutical companies are unlikely to stop these diseases, when the solution lies in simple prevention. Anti-inflammatory life style can both prevent the onset of these diseases as well as slow down the progression of the chronic diseases. Dr. Pai provides evidence that various agents provided by Mother Nature are inexpensive, are very safe and can control dysregulated inflammation. This book by Dr. Pai does an excellent job in describing the role of inflammation and its link to various diseases. This will have a huge impact on our lives and thus highly recommended.”

“Pai, a board-certified doctor in family and integrative medicine who has studied with Andrew Weil and Deepak Chopra, offers this voluminous compendium of alternative health approaches. . . . in the case of chronic conditions, Western medicine often treats symptoms with a retinue of drugs and surgery while leaving underlying causal conditions untouched. “Conventional medical treatment has classified over two hundred different ‘itis’ conditions, with over a dozen different types of medical specializations that treat these individually and symptomatically,” Pai writes in describing standardized medical care. The “itis” ending in the terms for many ailments refers to inflammation, which covers a wide swath of chronic medical conditions that plague Americans. The author describes in . . . detail all the causes of inflammation that abound in what people eat, drink, and breathe. . . . Almost nothing Americans encounter to eat or drink remains uncorrupted, according to the author, . . . The author’s exceptionally detailed investigation leads to but one conclusion: a plant-based diet to avoid inflammatories, appropriate water filtration and energizing, and proper health supplementation all can go a long way to address common chronic health conditions that plague those who suffer from the many “itis” ailments. In this well-researched work, Pai attacks the purity and quality of many supplements on the market today. Through his clinic, House of Sanjevani, he has formulated his own supplements that meet his rigorous standards. The thorough volume provides lots of information, but the author writes in a simple, straightforward manner, engaging his subject with an enthusiasm and joy that make this book a pleasure to read. A complete and detailed guide to integrative healing methods by a well-known doctor who specializes in alternative tactics to address the inflammation that underlies many chronic health issues.”
