Simon and Schuster
One of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine shares her proven four-step program to treat, reverse, and prevent autoimmune conditions and repair your immune system.

• Are you constantly exhausted?

• Do you frequently feel sick?

• Are you hot when others are cold, or cold when everyone else is warm?

• Do you have trouble thinking clearly, aka “brain fog”?

• Do you often feel irritable?

• Are you experiencing hair loss, dry skin, or unexplained weight fluctuation?

• Do your joints ache or swell but you don’t know why?

• Do you have an overall sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it’s actually normal to you?

IF you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an autoimmune disease, and this book is the “medicine” you need. Among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune disease affects nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet; exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics; and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions to suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more. In The Immune System Recovery Plan, Dr. Susan Blum, one of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine, shares the four-step program she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, heal their immune systems, and prevent future illness.

DR. BLUM’S INNOVATIVE METHOD FOCUSES ON:

• Using food as medicine

• Understanding the stress connection

• Healing your gut and digestive system

• Optimizing liver function

Each of these sections includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple, easy-to-prepare dishes to jump-start the healing process.

The Immune System Recovery Plan is a revolutionary way for people to balance their immune systems, transform their health, and live fuller, happier lives.

If you're not willing to change what you've been doing which led to disease, don't expect to heal. The increasing amount of research shows evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, that removing specific foods from the diet is crucial, but also being intentional about healing leaky gut. So it does include, but not limited to, eliminating certain foods for a time, then reintroducing things one at a time. I did not like it either, but it made a huge difference! I believe gluten (and most or all grains) and dairy from the diet for a time is beneficial to ALL people who suffer from leaky gut, allergies, or autoimmune disease. It may not be forever, but during the healing period it IS crucial.

If you're not willing to give up gluten and dairy, then don't bother with this book. The author bangs on this throughout the book, which detracts from whatever other useful advice she gives. Gluten and dairy free diets help a lot of people, but they are not the answer for everyone.
