Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Today Karen Nicole Taylor announced the launch of her new blog—http://www.HealingInflammationCafe.com. She created the blog to share her journey from sick and tired to healthy and happy. After being diagnosed with inflammatory disease, Taylor healed herself by radically changing the way she ate—from a typical American diet to an organic anti-inflammatory diet.
One year ago, Taylor was flat on her back with both legs swollen from the thigh to her toes, and her knees and ankles in debilitating pain. She used crutches to walk, when she could walk. Five doctors and dozens of medical tests later, she still wasn’t getting better or given a medical protocol to heal. In fact, the rheumatoid arthritis specialist told her: “The tests are inconclusive, but something’s cooking. Come back when you’re in worse pain and we’ll put you on steroids.”
Taylor said, “The doctor might as well have told me to come back and he’ll make my life a living hell. Whenever I’ve taken steroids for poison ivy outbreaks, it was a case of the cure being worse than the disease. I was facing a future of harsh drugs, and worsening pain, health, and quality of life.”
Then, at the recommendation of a friend, she went to an acupuncturist, who was also a nutritionist specializing in autoimmune disease. “She changed my diet—and my life,” said Taylor. “Now I don’t eat wheat, genetically modified foods like corn and soy, processed foods, fast food, or any other junk food. I only eat organic anti-inflammatory foods.
“Within six months of gradually changing my diet, I was out of pain and walking again,” said Taylor. “Now I want to share my miraculous recovery with everyone who is suffering from inflammation or who wants to prevent it. That’s why I’ve started my blog and it’s why I’m writing two books, including an anti-inflammatory diet cookbook.”
In her research, Taylor learned that chronic systemic inflammation is one of the greatest threats to our health today. One major reason for this increase in inflammatory-related diseases, like diabetes, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, according to a growing body of research, is the typical American diet of fast food, junk food, processed food, and food chemicals—which is spreading around the world.
“The alternative is an organic diet that cuts out all known toxins, including wheat, sugar, genetically modified foods or GMOs, and the wide variety of chemicals, pesticides, and hormones used in our food system,” says Taylor. “My blog will go into detail on how we should change our diet and why.”
HealingInflammationCafe.com will regularly report on the following 10 topics:
- Healing Foods — foods that give our bodies the macronutrients and micronutrients we need to thrive.
- Anti-Inflammatory Foods — foods that do not trigger systemic inflammation in most people.

“Along with my blog, I’m also writing a book and creating a cookbook,” said Taylor. “Both will be available soon.”
Taylor’s soon-to-be-released book, called Inflammation Elimination Diet—How Changing My Diet Changed My Life: From Sick and Tired to Happy and Healthy!, tells Taylor’s story about suddenly being crippled with inflammatory disease to healing with dietary changes and acupuncture and massage therapy. Inflammation Elimination Diet is available for pre-order at a discounted price of $9.99 at http://www.HealingInflammationCafe.com.
Taylor’s upcoming cookbook will feature dozens of recipes that Taylor created as she learned from the ground up how to eat, shop, and cook to heal and prevent inflammation. She plans to also launch Healing Inflammation Workshops to help guide people in living an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
To learn more about healing and preventing inflammation, people can subscribe to Taylor’s new blog. Subscribers will receive two gifts: a free sample cookbook of anti-inflammation recipes, and a 50% discount on an upcoming Healing Inflammation Workshop.
