Solutions to secondary conditions that come along-side a spinal-cord injury (SCI) lie just a bite away.

A new book, Eat Well, Live Well with Spinal Cord Injury , written in association with Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), helps people with SCI take control of their associated complications by adjusting daily diets.

Nutritionists Joanne Smith and Kylie James use their personal experiences with SCI to map out diets that meet the needs of conditions including digestion, pressure ulcers, mental health, sleep disorders, liver function, cardiovascular disease and obesity. Each chapter gives suggestions for the nutrients, food items, herbs and supplements that make keeping symptoms at bay easy and natural.

Nutrient-rich recipes tailored to target each condition help people with SCI get a head start on an eating plan that will put them in control of their conditions in a practical and cost-effective way.
