Tarzana, CA, July 11, 2010 --( Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Arthritis, Inflammation, Gout, Crohn’s, IBD and IBS: How to Eliminate Pain and Extend Your Life by Emanuel Barling, Jr., Esq., and Ashley F. Brooks, R.N. The authors’ most recent book to date is a 8.25 x 11 paperback in the medical category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

“Mr. Barling’s amazing recovery can only be attributed to his research into the history of natural digestive enzymes and his formula limiting the pain and physical limitations of his arthritis, gout and IBD.”

— Cranford L. Scott, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of Southern California.

Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the U.S. In 2009, an estimated 50 million adults reported being told by a doctor they have arthritis. By 2030, the number will reach 79 million. More than 3 million people admit to suffering from gout in the U.S. alone. More than 2 million people suffer from Crohn’s Disease, IBD, IBS and other digestive diseases. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S. (behind lung cancer) with nearly 150,000 new cases diagnosed each year.

As the incidents of these illnesses increase throughout our nation, it becomes clear that a significant number of Americans are suffering from symptoms without knowing it. Often these symptoms start as early as forty years old and, for some, even earlier, because of a person’s genetic predisposition.
Can most people recognize these symptoms? Even if they do, do they know what to do about preventing and/or treating them? This book offers information, solutions and hope for preventing and controlling the effects of illness and disease.

The goal of the book is to help people prevent illness, heart disease, cancer, liver and kidney ailments and other diseases caused by inflammation, allergy, intolerance or genetic predisposition. The authors believe that their diet and natural enzyme formula discussed in their companion book, Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula for Arthritis, Inflammation, Gout, Crohn’s, IBD & IBS, offers the ultimate in preventive medicine.

The authors cite more than 1,800 medical treatises, journals, surveys, tests and periodicals covering more than 120 years of scientific research in the References section in support of their facts, theories and opinions. The reader can look up every theory and opinion and read the source material for themselves.

“If the information in our book were available to me earlier in life, I would have avoided colon cancer, the removal of a significant portion of my colon and avoided the onset of arthritis, gout, Crohn’s Disease, IBD and IBS.”

—Mannie Barling, co-author.
