The Gold of the Incas 

It was well over 5000 years ago when, high in the Andes Mountains, the Incas discovered and subsequently started to cultivate the warrior grainnow known as Quinoa. Quinoa was extensively used in Incan culture and was known as the warrior grain by the indigenous people due to its stamina and power boosting properties. The performance enhancing secrets of Quinoa were buried by the Spanish conquistadors when they arrived in South America and destroyed fields of quinoa in order to annihilate the Incans, but quinoa survived and continued to grow in the wild mountains of the Andes. It wasn’t until the 1980s, that two Americans stumbled over this ancient, super-nutritious food and began its cultivation in Colorado. Soon its popularity erupted and now quinoa is the subject of many food researchers along with natural medical practitioners. Its rejuvenating properties have been acknowledged by many and now are being used as much as possible. Apart from being refreshing, quinoa has shown the potential of being the curer of high-magnitude diseases like cancers, infections and neurological disorders.

Prelude 

If you’re reading this book then one thing’s for sure: you are either suffering or are in fear of getting IBS/irritable bowel syndrome. I will be getting into the details of the syndrome, as well as, the diet itself later on, but I would first like to tell you that you have certainly chosen the right path against IBS and your money will not go undervalued. 
IBS has made people’s lives miserable and has devastated their daily routines due to the unpredictable manner of its attacks. Some people have lost all their hopes and have pinned their fate on diets that incorporate artificial drug that only show results in the short term. To address all the prevailing issues related to bowel diseases, the low-FODMAP diet made an entry in the early 2000s, making a profound impact on the whole medical framework. It was swiftly adopted by swathes of people and since then has gained popularity due to its crucial effectiveness. Now it’s up to you, as to whether you want to be one of them or not?
I say go for it!
From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.

The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.

History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.

In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

Prelude 

The Celiac disease is a disorder that is not unheard of. People who suffer from this disorder are prone to stomach damage if they consume foods containing gluten. A gluten-free diet specifically targets these people and is thus a diet that excludes foods containing gluten. 

When consumed, gluten causes inflammation in the small intestine that leads to other signs and symptoms. In order to prevent and bring these signs under check, gluten must be avoided. Any person, unless of course an experienced medical practitioner, cannot build his/her own diet out of scratch, even though the diet’s name is pretty much self-explanatory. 

This is where this book comes in; it relieves you of any doubt about the causes of the problems the diet deals with, to its recipes, so you would have complete knowledge when you shift to the non-gluten regimen. Moreover, the diet is also applicable to people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity which will be explained later. Note that people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity may or may not benefit from a gluten-free diet, but for sufferers of celiac disease, a gluten-free meal plan is a necessity rather than a suggestion. 

Switching to the diet can itself be a big step as it will pretty much involve you to substitute each gluten component of your diet with something new. But with courage, faith, and guidance in the right direction, it is not that difficult to accomplish this goal.
