5.0 out of 5 stars It worked for me. Oct. 20 2007
By Good Food Farm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In this world of increasingly complex health care issues, we are all
looking for answers, something that will finally help us feel better. In
Michael Fowler's new book NIGHTSHADE FREE, PAIN FREE a wealth of
information has been made available that points to a menacing problem
many people may be having with the consumption of nightshade foods. The
author goes through an in-depth and most informative discussion of the
history of nightshades that is both fascinating and a warning of the
problems that were to come from their increasing consumption by humans.
He covers in a very accessible and often even humorous way the
physiological effects that nightshades have upon us. The fact that the
neurotoxin solanime is not destroyed by cooking or by the human
digestive system itself should be of concern to all who consume a
nightshade food of any kind. Mr. Fowler's research is comprehensive and
easily followed by the reader. Last, but not least, is the relief I
myself have found in the elimination of nightshade vegetables from my
diet. I have suffered from migraine headaches, arthritis, and digestive
disorders for years and I am finally beginning to feel better. I
recommend the information in this book to anyone suffering as I have
been. I can see the benefits for myself and I believe the book is a real
gift to so many of us who are suffering needlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read book Aug. 13 2008
By Book lover Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I always thought of myself as well versed on all things tied to holistic health - but Michael's book was a real eye opener. His book is exceedingly well researched and contains information I have not read elsewhere. If you are suffering from any form of arthritis - you MUST read this book. For years I imbibed in what I thought was a health drink - tomato juice with cayenne pepper. Imagine my shock when I find out from Michael's book that both tomatoes and peppers contain potent neurotoxins. By following Michael's dietary recommendations, I cured myself of arthritis in a short period. Most doctors are unfamiliar with the harm that nightshades can do. I consider this book a bible in my health library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightshades ahead - proceed with caution May 16 2010
By V. Nizamoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the back of ny mind I always knew they were a problem for me. After a few days of eating them my joints would hurt. O.K. I'd lay off them for a few days and shrug it off. After reading Michael Fowler's book I decided to quit them altogether and I'm glad I did. Energy levels, mental clarity, I.B.S. have all improved. Who would have thought? I subscribe to 5 medical newsletters that never mentioned the far reaching effects nightshades can have on your body. They only mentioned joint pain. Five stars to Mr. Fowler. Best 10 bucks I've ever spent. This book is the first and only product I've ever found worthy of a review.

3.0 out of 5 stars DR. Norman Childers published about this for decades! March 8 2013
By DaChipmunk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had severe rheumatoid arthritis, I.B.S., age spots all over my hands and lower legs and feet, the right ankle and left foot were swollen and purple with serum-negative gout-like symptoms, I hadn't been able to close my hands for two years, and I had periodic intestinal bleeding. It wasn't until I heard one of the doctors make a short reference to nightshades, red meat, and iodine after a year and a half of his very expensive tests that I found out DOCTOR Norman Childers and his associates had published on this subject over 3 decades ago and many times since. I've bought Childers' books four times because some people we have loaned them out to never returned them. The Nightshades and Health - Arthritis - a Diet to Stop It books published under various similar titles through (I think) six editions (check bookfinder.com) cured me of nearly all the rheumatoid arthritis/gout/swollen joints/spots/bleeding. I could close my hands again and sleep without anything touching my feet like the sheet being excruciating.

While I have bought this author's new book someone needs to not claim in the book description on Amazon's webpage that Mr. Fowler discovered the cure - he didn't.

Because Dr. Childers' books have become out of print/scarce I am buying a second copy of Mr. Fowler's Nightshade Free for someone close to my wife who is working in heavy pain now.

*** I am sure Mr. Fowler trumpeting the information anew will help many folks. ***

*** The 94% who reported complete or substantial relief of arthritis (as seen on the back of Mister Fowler's present book is discussed much more clearly on page 116 of it and that) refers to a survey conducted by Doctors Childers and Margoles when they queried people who followed the Childers Diet - not the one in this (Fowler's) book. ***

All the anti-inflamatories in the world won't cure you if you keep putting toxins in your system.

Modified food starch = potatoes; and tomatoes, paprika, pimento, tobacco, red and green peppers and eggplant are all nightshades too. Highly acidic drinks and foods will also set off flares.

When I had rheumatoid arthritis, heavy gout-like symptoms without the uric acid crystals in my joints, age/liver spots aka Schamberg's Disease (caused by broken capillaries in the skin), and intestinal bleeding I was eating nightshades heavily on a regular basis and highly spicing the food. The most severe symptoms were subsequent to Thursday nights at Italian restaurants. Non-insurable due to the arthritis I was spending a quarter of my income on doctors, tests and drugs - then one doctor mentioned potatoes, tomatoes, red meats, and iodine - said it was undocumented - but I found Dr. Childers' book, began experimenting, and for symptoms unrelated to fibromyalgia massively improved.

If you won't at least consider giving this stuff up for a month and then eating a good-sized portion of what you've been avoiding and seeing what reaction your body has by about thirty hours later - to see if you DO REACT - if you refuse to even consider giving up foods you love (we used to keep a food diary) to learn what's causing your symptoms - then resign yourself to your pain and expect it to get much worse with age - in which case it may well become irreversible. I've known people with almost identical symptoms to what I had, some improve by trying these suggestions, and some won't even try to eliminate the toxins because they love the foods hurting them so much. If you learn what causes you severe pain I promise you you will learn not to mind avoiding it - gladly.

Childers' research in an earlier edition pointed out that 1/3 of us are born allergic to nightshades, another 1/3 will develop the allergies during their lifetimes and only 1/3 of the population doesn't react. The damage is cumulative in many cases.

Modified food starch is in a HUGE variety of products now and it is very hard to find prepared foods that don't have it in it. I sometimes go through weeks of heavy fibromyalgia/chronic myofascial pain syndrome (trigger points causing referred pain) before I figure out what has been newly adulterated with nightshades in my regular foods. Modified food starch is even in some soft drinks now. In my case potatoes and eggplant are more prone to muscle contraction and pain problems/cramping while tomatoes cause rheumatoid arthritis reactions.

Red meats and pork cause buildups of lactic acid in the muscles, and peas contain purines. Get tested for high uric acid count, mine was 13 while normal is 5-9. I've been on allopurinol to control it for 32 years. Some people, like me, have trouble eliminating lactic acid in their muscles. I inherited many health problems through my maternal predecessors. I beat rheumatoid arthritis and the other symptoms I've mentioned, but not all. My mother never did, nor did grandmother.

I REALLY WISH SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME IN 1980 THE STUFF I'M TELLING YOU HERE.

If my mother had discussed her symptoms much I'd have changed careers and not done all the repetitive motion that my multi-traded work entailed, I made thousands of items in many materials, most large and many custom, which advanced heavy symptoms by decades. Mother spent her last twenty-five years on a sofa day and night and it ended there.

BTW - Yams or Sweet Potatoes are not nightshades.

As to IBS symptoms - get an Alcat blood panel test done for food allergies. Red blood cells swell up when placed in trays with a selection of allergens if you react to them. That cured mine. Not too many doctors know about this. They must specify the type of allergan panels to test with. This beats the heck out of the 800 shot allergy test I had when I was about age 9 with asthma which I outgrew. Then they observed welt sizes on the skin for reactions.

If you have come into contact in the past with all sorts of products containing formaldehyde as I did you should know that is an irreversible sensitizer causing reactions to things that may never have previously bothered you. Adhesives and glues often contain it, or did, as a curing agent. Get your new carpets aired out very well before installation. Chinese made sheetrock in many new homes and other products may be very hazardous. It was so strong in the air when we cut some materials we could hardly breathe.

Finally - for all you chocaholics - Nestle and Hershey both put PGPR - an emulsifier made from eggplant - in their chocolates several years ago. The muscles on my spine were drawing up so tight I had to have the rib head at T-10 reset four times before I discovered the cause. We had bags of older Hershey's that didn't cause the symptoms that the new PGPR mixture did. It was the only new ingredient. I tried convincing Hershey and the FDA of the problem, then Nestle started doing the same thing.

Mars chocolates do not have this insidious stuff. M&Ms, Tootsie Rolls, and their other products don't react this way. If you are prone to constipation or have dry stool due to opiate use for pain you may find, as I did, that a few Tootsie Rolls make elimination much easier as it acts like an excellent lubricant. The medium sized ones contain more of the beneficial oil than the smallest size.

Oh yes, before you see a rheumatologist the next time, xerox a body muscle chart front and back and use highlighters to mark the extent of your pain and the severity of it by using different colors to show severity. I did this and learned I had been misdiagnosed/on many wrong drugs for a decade beyond the symptoms I did manage to eliminate. If you have extensive muscle pain and not just arthritis I recommend Bonnie Prudden's Listen to Your Pain and Dr. Darryl Starlanyl's books on Fibromyalgia/Myofascial Pain Syndrome.

Mr. Fowler, feel free to experiment and possibly include the suggestions above.
They have proven very effective in my experience. The PGPR discovery and the benefits of Tootsie Rolls are exclusively my discovery - but if it helps other people I say spread the word. I hope you do use it. Gratis. I have pointed it out to many doctors.

I wish you less pain and good luck - keep a food diary and compare foods ingested with subsequent experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthritis Relief March 25 2008
By Michael T. Seymour - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Nightshade Free Pain Free is well researched and well written. It gives a comprehensive and accurate description of the nightshade plants and their effect on human health. This book gives health conscious people valuable information that is not widely known. I have been diagnosed with an arthritic condition - ankylosing spondylitis - and after reading the book, I now intend to completely avoid the nightshade plants. If you are experiencing pain, it would be worthwhile to read this book and then avoid the nightshades.
