Dr. Will Cole—the international bestseller of Ketotarian, co-host of The Goopfellas Podcast, and leading functional medicine expert—is a Pittsburg local. We have the honor of hosting the launch of his latest book, THE INFLAMMATION SPECTRUM: Find Your Food Triggers and Reset Your Immune System (Avery/Penguin Random House; On Sale: October 15th). In this book, he reveals this issue exists on a continuum with mild symptoms like weight gain and fatigue on one end and hormone imbalance and autoimmune conditions on the other. What moves you in one direction or another is extremely personal. One person’s food medicine is another person’s food trigger.
With up to eight weeks of meal plans and 60 recipes that range from hearty to light, Dr. Cole designs actionable solutions that fit your dietary needs. When you are ready to reintroduce foods into your diet, he motivates you to track your reactions, so you can design a new, customized plan to optimize your health. Far from “just another diet book,” THE INFLAMMATION SPECTRUM deeply considers the mind-body connection and puts you on a permanent path towards healing.
