About this week's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Dr. David Seaman
DeFlame.com is devoted to nutritional and other lifestyle approaches for reducing inflammation.
Deflame.com was started by Dr. David Seaman, the first person to author a scientific paper that specifically hypothesized that diets can be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Since that paper about the ďdiet-induced proinflammatory stateĒ was published in 2002, thousands of papers and numerous books have been published on the topic of diet and inflammation, which is now accepted as mainstream. Dr. Seamanís original paper was referenced by researchers at the CDC and Harvard University.
BS from Rutgers University in 1982
Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1986
MS in Bio/nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 1991
While in clinical practice in the late 1980ís, he became aware of the developing research that linked nutrition to the inflammatory process and noticed that appropriate dietary changes could significantly improve various musculoskeletal and visceral conditions. Based on this experience, he began to focus on nutritional approaches for inflammation/pain control and has followed the related scientific literature ever since. This led to the publication of the first book on nutrition for pain and inflammation, which was followed by many articles and book chapters devoted to this topic. His educational efforts resulted in being awarded the 2006 Academician of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association.
While no one can be certain of their disposition for disease expression, Dr. Seamanís goal is to live as long as his grand/great grand parents who lived into their 90ís. Here he is pictured with his Great Aunt who lived to be 100 years old.
His goal is to live as long as his relatives and hopes to do so by following an anti-inflammatory nutrition program and a vigorous exercise program.
