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 percent 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....

The End of Pain: How Nutrition and Diet Can Fight Chronic Inflammatory Disease Reviews
Interesting information, but presented in such a stilted way, with such heavy scientific jargon that it was nigh on impossible to hold my attention. Despite the fact that I am a fan of science writing, I found the amount of tech-speak off putting. It is well researched, with plenty of supporting references. The author is certainly correct that the modern medical establishment is resistant to the idea that nutrition could be at the base of many modern problems. In the current health care model, doctors are much more interested in prescribing pills and ointments than in getting to the actual root causes of chronic issues. In my own pursuit of solutions to skin problems, I find that I receive lukewarm support from my doctor and no practical assistance whatsoever. In the spirit of “it can’t hurt to try” I’ll be giving Dr. Seignalet’s program a go. If it also helps with my joint aches and pains, as claimed by Ms. Lagace, that will be a bonus feature.
This book is a little difficult for people without a medical or scientific background to follow. I found the information about the author's own personal health struggles and how to change your diet to fight chronic inflammatory disease very intriguing and it made total sense to me. I really wish the author had laid out a better plan of what to eat, what to eliminate, and how to go about it. It just seemed a little disjointed or incomplete to me. Anyhow with rereading certain paragraphs a couple of times, I did manage to figure out a basic plan, which would be helpful when attempting this "hypotoxic" diet. It seems very worthwhile to give this a try as the scientific evidence presented in the book certainly seems to support it.
Very scientific and well researched, but I don't think I will be trying this diet anytime soon. I was hoping to gain new insight to my chronic pain, but it was overwhelming to read this book, so I had to take it one chapter at a time.I think there is valuable information in this book, and I am not dismissing the evidence found in the literature review, but I also felt overwhelmed and confused at times.All I can do is keep researching and reading, and trying new things, diets and all. One day they are going to figure out my chronic migraines, I have to hold onto hope!
