For years, Jacqueline Lagacé suffered from debilitating arthritic pain in her hands, spine, and knees. Conventional medicine failed to provide any relief, and Lagacé, a medical researcher, began searching for alternatives.
That search brought her to the work of Dr Jean Seignalet, an expert in nutrition therapy, who used targeted nutrition to treat patients suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases. His approach was called the hypotoxic diet, and he achieved an 80 per cent success rate with it. By following his dietary regime, Lagacé experienced alleviation of the pain in her hands within ten days, and regained the use of her hands in 16 months. Her severe back and knee pain were also greatly reduced.
In The End of Pain, Lagacé explores how our bodies are at war with our modern Western diet. She thoroughly investigates the science behind treating inflammatory disease with nutritional therapy, and explains why consuming wheat, dairy products, and animal proteins cooked at high temperatures disrupts the balance of intestinal flora and spurs the growth of pathogenic rather than beneficial bacteria. Citing recent scientific studies showing how and why these foods are potentially pro-inflammatory, The End of Pain is where relief begins.
