Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others? What makes us more susceptible to illness? Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do? Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.
Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.
The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease - everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.
What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.
Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you discovered super immunity?

I just want to say that this book changed my life and the way i eat and think of food and drugs.
I would like to thank DR Fuhrman for his great book and I just cant wait until he comes for a visit in Israel so i can shake his hand.
I have listened to this book 5 times now. The book is packed with great information, so much, in fact, that I have had to listen multiple times to take it all in. Every chapter contains life changing (for the better) information, from food specific facts, to antibiotics, to disease fighting info, this book has it all. Whenever I find myself turning to processed foods, I open the PDF and make Dr. Fuhrmans Tomatoe Bisque soup, it is delicious and filling! And I never geel bad about "over" eating these nutritarian recipes because I know they won't make me fat or unhealthy. My 4 year old and 6 year old eat The Black Bean Brownies every morning for breakfast. I tell them it's chocolate fudge and they DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. Thanks Dr. F!
Immune System Supporting, Food Choice ENCYCLOPEDIA!
We literally Are what we eat. ((♡))
This is a must read for anyone ready to understand, support and trust the immune system to keep us disease free, naturally without drugs and the many potential side effects.
The book is informational and does reinforce the notion that eating organic veggies and fruits are healthy, however I could only read this book while running on the treadmill because it gives me reason to keep going but I could not read it in the car or while relaxing. The reader reads in a monotone, with no excitement or passion. If you listen for more than 15 min it puts you to sleep.
Joel Fuhrman is so passionate about his work in this book. Some of the words and scientific terms through me off a bit but the pdf was a great resource. I would recommend this to family and friends and anyone who has always been puzzled by the health industries conflicting statements and analysis.
Just when I thought I knew it all.
Informative- information everyone should know but sadly won't
Yes a real eye opener stuff schools should be teaching or presenting but sadly will not.
Similar to salt,sugar,fat both books should be required reading unless of course you enjoy being sick and headed for an early death. Will open your eyes to the crap you are feeding your kids and to be blunt why the youth of today are fat and lazy. You will be sickened by how badly you have been fooled by the food companys or should i say cigarette company's that switched industrys.
