More About The Autoimmune Solution by M.D. Amy Myers
 
 
 
Overview

Over 90 percent of the population suffers from inflammation or an autoimmune disorder. Until now, conventional medicine has said there is no cure. Minor irritations like rashes and runny noses are ignored, while chronic and debilitating diseases like Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis are handled with a cocktail of toxic treatments that fail to address their root cause. But it doesn't have to be this way.

In The Autoimmune Solution, Dr. Amy Myers, a renowned leader in functional medicine, offers her medically proven approach to prevent a wide range of inflammatory-related symptoms and diseases, including allergies, obesity, asthma, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, IBS, chronic headaches, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Functional medicine physician Myers, who once suffered from Graves’ disease, claims that conventional medicine has failed the more than 50 million Americans with autoimmune diseases, which include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. The “Myers Way” relies on the “four pillars”: healing the gut (80% of the immune system, she notes, is located there); cutting out gluten; detoxifying the body; and dealing with infections (e.g., Epstein-Barr) and stress. Gluten, says Myers, causes inflammation and encourages leaky gut syndrome: avoid it, she advises, “like the plague” (in its hybridized state this is not the gluten, she explains, of our ancestors). Myers includes a 30-day meal plan for readers with autoimmune problems, replacing “inflammatory” ingredients like sugar, legumes, eggs, grains, and dairy with protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates. In an appendix, she also includes a symptom tracker to help readers chart their progress. Though Myers’s protocol requires discipline (particularly difficult for vegetarians), those with autoimmune issues should welcome this helpful and hopeful resource from a physician who walks her talk.
