Publisher's Summary

The most prevalent form of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune diseases affect nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic - a result of the toxins in our diet, our exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, antibiotics, and unprecedented stress levels - has caused millions of people to suffer from diseases like Graves' disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more.
Now, Dr. Susan Blum describes the four-step plan that she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and helps countless patients reverse their symptoms, strengthen their immune systems, and prevent future illness. Dr. Blum's innovative method shows how to use food as medicine, understand the connection between stress and health, heal the gut and digestive system, and optimize liver function. The Immune System Recovery Plan is a groundbreaking, revolutionary way for people to transform their health.

An Approach That Treats The Whole Person

I agree with the author that the standard American diet of fast food, processed food, chemical additives, and high sugar intake is making large numbers of people sick. Overall, I found the material presented compelling. However, there were several places in the book where I felt that Dr Blum may have jumped too quickly from point A to point D (skipping over points B & C) possibly rushing to find "the" answer precipitously. In reality, the physiology and pathology of the human body is anything but simple.

The book is filled with information and gentle encouragement. I particularly liked Dr Blum's holistic approach--looking at the individual from all angles. Diet, life style, exercise, supplements & vitamins, stress control, mind/body instruction and symptom management are all addressed. The book is very helpful whether you have an autoimmune diagnosis or are trying to prevent an autoimmune disease from developing.

The narration was a bit strange as the voice almost sounded robotic or machine generated. This wasn't enough to make me stop listening. I would suggest a listen to the sample first, but keep in mind that the material presented is worth coping with the odd narration.

Great book, very detailed

What made the experience of listening to The Immune System Recovery Plan the most enjoyable?

This book is very detailed and that is what I like. It talks about diseases and tell how you can get tested, what kind of blood test you need and what the results should be.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes this book is one of those that you just want to keep listening but there is so much information that I keep coming back and re listening some parts.

Any additional comments?

For people who do not have much time to sit down and rad, this book is great to listen but I would keep both, paper copy and digital. There is a lot of information that you just can't remember and I would like to be able to highlight in my book so I can come back to it. So I will be buying a hard copy as well :)
