Item Description...
Performance without Pain, A Step-by-Step Nutritional Approach to Healing Pain, Inflammation and Chronic Ailments in Musicians, Athletes and Dancers and Everyone Else, is co-authored by Kathryne Pirtle, clarinetist of the Orion Ensemble, Dr. John Turner, DC, CCSP, DIBCN, a prominent chiropractic physician, and Sally Fallon, best selling author of Nourishing Traditions and international nutrition lecturer. It discusses the prevalence and dietary causes of inflammatory and related chronic ailments in our population. These ailments, that are affecting the health of a growing percentage of our population, can also seriously curtail the careers of people in high-performance fields such as music, athletics and dance.

This book promotes an understanding of the integral relationship between degenerative illness in our society and rampant malnutrition caused by our modern foods, food supply, and nutritional dictates. It offers solutions to healing through a diet based on traditional nutrient-dense foods founded on the infallible research done on healthy populations worldwide---populations that had no chronic illness.

Dr. Turner and Kathryne Pirtle present seminars on this important topic for the general public, symphony orchestras, ballet companies, sports teams and university music and dance schools.

Performance without pain.  Apr 27, 2010
It makes sense.....very interesting......we are certainly going to try the suggestions in the book. Chrisy and Herm.
This book lives on my kitchen counter.  Feb 7, 2009
This book is exactly what I needed in my quest for an improved diet. I have Celiac disease (as does the author of the book) and I struggle with Osteoporosis. My 14 year old son also has Celiac disease and is slow to grow. My daughter is Autistic and has many gastrointestinal issues. The principles in this book allow me to maximize the nutrition of my family in a way that benefits all of us. Yes, it does require one to go back to the kitchen and put more effort into creating food from scratch but the benefits far outway the negatives. It makes me feel good that I am providing higher levels of vitamins and minerals to my kids in a more effective manner than simply popping a vitamin pill in their mouths.

I am convinced that the large food manufacturers in this country have totally impoverished our food supply. Dr Weston A Price first discovered this in the 1930's. As hard as it is going to be for the general public to understand "where we went wrong", I believe that, with the help of Kathryn Pirtles book, we must begin to teach the truth about what is healthy and what is not.
Performance Without Pain  Feb 6, 2009
Kathryne's book has been a great source of continued proof that the traditional foods recommended by the Weston A. Price Foundation and her book are indeed healing. I found Kathryne's book a very well written to the point resource for active people who have encountered various health issues that interfere with performance athletic and artistic. For those who have tried the advice of mainstream health care and feel frustrated and let down this book is a welcome source of education and support in how to take an active role in healing oneself. Kathryne's personal story is a testimony as are the many others who have found and follow these principles to overcome often debilitating health problems myself included.
I love that the book is straight forward,to the point and an easy read. The recipes are great too.
I make the gluten-free nut crackers all the time as well as nourishing bone broths.
This book is worth the investment and I highly recommend it!

Grateful for this book  Feb 5, 2009
"The proof is in the pudding," as the saying goes. My wife and I both follow Ms. Pirtle's dietary suggestions with excellent results. Well, actually my wife suffers with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and has to eat much less dairy food than I do. But, there are many things about Pirtle's suggestions that are working for her, too.

The main point to grasp is that each person must experiment to find what works for his or her metabolic type. Ratios, portions, how often per week, etc. are also as important as what one digests. Anyone who balks at giving this diet the "college try" has obviously not suffered enough - yet. That person may also have a spouse who enjoys so large an annual income, and therefore does not need to be concerned about being physically non-functional. You show me a person who makes a living, and supports a family, as a musician, typist, computer operator, seamstress, tailor, and anyone who works with his or her hands, and who has debilitating (or chronically annoying) pain in his or her hands, arms, elbows, shoulders or back, and I'll show you a person is willing to try this - and anything else.

When one eventually tires of going to a doctor, getting another prescription that is frightening for its acknowledged, potential damage to ones liver, kidneys, gut and heart, Pirtle's suggestions may look a lot more promising and appealing.

To those who fear that they will develop a high bad cholesterol count, on a diet such as she suggests, I offer the following personal anecdote. Someone would have to explain to me why it is that, years ago, when I went on the extreme first two week regimen of the Dr. Atkins diet, my bad cholesterol level dropped like a rock. It was so low, that my physician laughed with glee over my lab report. He, who for so long was dead set against the Atkins diet, finally read Atkins' books. When he called, to give me the lab report, he said, "You are obviously addicted and allergic to carbos. What you crave most is what you are allergic to." During the first two weeks, I ate 3 eggs and 3 sausages every morning. For lunch and supper I ate double portions of red meat, lamb, pork, bacon, chicken, or fish. In between meals I ate lots of salami, prosciutto (Italian ham), and cheese. Water was my only beverage!. I ate and drank enough (water) to fill my stomach to satisfaction, and my cholesterol went way, way down into the "no risk at all" level. Following that two week period, if I were to introduce ANY grains, or even one slice of bread, my weight would increase and my bad cholesterol would increase. I could eat greens with no bad effect, even though they contain some carbohydrates. I know this for a fact because I was tested again. Now, some physician would have to explain why this is so. Meanwhile, I am not worried about Ms. Pirtle's dairy and meat-heavy dietary suggestions. I only suggest that one eat grass-fed beef , organically grown vegetables, and the dairy products as suggested by Ms. Pirtle.

Another side effect of my all protein diet was that I stopped snoring altogether, I needed about 2 hours less sleep, I felt like I was 18 years old again, and I lost all craving for pasta, raviolis, pierogis, lasagna, cake, bread and doughnuts. I could look at that stuff and turn away from it, whereas prior to that I had a "monkey on my back" that made me feel as though "I must eat some starch RIGHT NOW, or else I will lose my mind." This is precisely why I am grateful to Ms. Pirtle for writing her book; I have much the same experience on her suggested diet.

As far as "leaky gut" is concerned, anyone who suffers from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) would do themselves a favor by reading A New IBS Solution, by author Mark Pimentel, MD. Its sub-title is Bacteria - the missing link in treating irritable bowel syndrome. Ms. Pirtle's suggestions center on this need for good bacteria; bacteria that has not been cooked and processed out of our food. We are still following the high-density, nutritional recipes that she suggests in her book can only say that we do very well on them. We are undaunted by the fact that the recipes are more time-consuming than those of the "normal" American diet; we base our convictions upon results that keep us working and playing (sports) without pain or discomfort.
A must read for those serious about taking charge of their own health  Feb 3, 2009
Kathryn Pirtle's book literally saved my life. I felt as though I was at the "end of my rope". My story was very similar to Kathryn's in that I had searched for years and had done all the "right" things by eating healthy (I was a vegetarian for 10 years), had been in the care of many alternative practitioners and had consulted many books and methodologies for healthier eating and living. By the age of 45, I had serious acid reflux problems and as a singer had survived 4 vocal surgeries for varicose veins and pollups on my vocal cords. As a professional singer, it was a depressing reality to say the least. I happened upon Kathy's book and couldn't put it down. Because of the simplicity of the layout of the book and it's easy to follow ideas, I immediately began to incorporate the recipes suggested into my diet and found myself feeling better and better over time. I am now medication free and no longer have symptoms. I feel stronger than ever and am now able to work out without pain. At 50, I feel better than ever. I continue to follow the healthy eating principles laid out in the book.

Kathy's book is easy to read, easy to follow and gives you practical solutions that you can begin to implement into your life immediately. The information is succinct, to the point, is supported by years of research and it WORKS!! There are also many references at the end of the book for supplemental support in the way of companies that provide great health and food products.

This book is a must have for anyone who is serious about taking the responsibility of their health into their own hands. No doctor or health practitioner can live your life for you and tell you what to do each day. This book gives you a practical guide for healthy eating to do just that. And it is workable, feasible and delivers results. I highly recommend that if you are ready to take charge of your own health and ultimate destiny, this book is a must!
