Inflammation Mastery 4th Edition (PDF cover, PDF contents) is the "master textbook" that details the functional inflammology protocol, described below. The full-color paper book is available for international shipping from ICHNFM.ORG while paper and digital versions are available from major bookstores such as Amazon.com (also amazon.co.uk in the UK and amazon.de in Germany...) and BarnesandNoble.com. Because the information in this book has already been time-proven via previous publications and extensive peer-review and thousands of citations to authoritative sources, it will not change nor be replaced in the foreseeable future. Any necessary updates will be provided by articles, videos, live webinars, and an extending separate "volume 3" described below.

Comments about book indexes

  • Some of the world's most popular and powerful books do not have indexes. The Bible has no index. Second to The Bible in western literature is Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, also without an index. 

  • "A typical index for an ordinary book takes up about 5% of the pages. That’s an index for a 100-page book that’s 5 pages long. But many books are not typical. Library reference books and some guidebooks are often much more detailed. An 8% index is more typical for those. That’s an index to a 100-page book that’s 8 pages long."  wordmapsindexing.com/how-long-index-should-be/
