CHICAGO, Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Renowned surgeon Dr. Dean M. Toriumi announces the launch of his book "Anti-Inflammatory Diet in the Era of COVID-19." These days many would benefit from improving their general health and strengthen their immune system. In his new book, Dr. Toriumi provides a clear understanding of what is "inflammation" and how it affects the body.
With so much uncertainty in regard to the virus and the imminent vaccine, Dr. Toriumi encourages his patients to find ways to protect themselves through diet and exercise in addition to wearing masks, washing hands and social distancing. Similar to other well-studied diets such as the Mediterranean diet, plant-based diets and the Okinawa diet, the Anti-Inflammatory diet minimizes the intake of inflammatory foods and promotes anti-inflammatory foods.
Most things we eat and drink affect the inflammation in our bodies. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding anti-inflammatory or neutral foods, you are able to strengthen your immune system. As the perfect stocking stuffer, this book aims to empower the reader to make informed decisions to help increase the chances of disease prevention.
"Considering the threat of the COVID-19 virus, we must make strides to lead an overall healthier life, and it begins with food." says Toriumi. "New Year's Resolutions are the perfect gateway into the Anti-Inflammatory diet. My book provides readers with the tools to achieve a healthier body that may resist infections and potentially improve COVID-19 outcomes should you contract it."
"Anti-Inflammatory Diet in the Era of COVID-19" empowers the reader to make educated nutritional decisions, which will trickle down and impact many aspects of their lives. We may not be able to control COVID-19, but we do have some control over the comorbidities that we may have. By making significant lifestyle changes and modifying our diets, we can significantly decrease blood pressure, lose weight, improved heart and general health conditions, decrease joint pain, and potentially increase lifespan. Providing background on how the body reacts to food and drink, Dr. Toriumi teaches the reader about the immune system's response to food, explains inflammatory, anti-inflammatory and neutral foods and explains how some comorbidities linked to chronic inflammation.
