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.

very informative and helpful book

I wish all endocrinologists or even all doctors read this book before they prescribe drugs to patients. most doctors have very narrow knowledge in their specific area and they don't even bother to look outside. five stars!
