Recipes for Repair (Aired on February 1, 2013)
Gail Piazza, a professional food consultant, and her daughter Laura, who suffers from chronic Lyme disease, discuss their award-winning book, Recipes for Repair: A Lyme Disease Cookbook. The book, which applies to everyone, not only those with Lyme, was a 2012 USA Best Books selection. People often have inflammation in their body without realizing it, and some foods make the inflammation worse. Therefore, the authors emphasize the need to identify one’s personal hidden sensitivities and ways to conduct a self-assessment to determine foods that might be a detriment to your own health. Also discussed are the telltale signs of Lyme (besides the bull’s eye rash), Lyme prevention tips, inflammation in our body, and a lot more.
