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.

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.
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.
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 :)
Dr. Blum systematically explains and dissects each disease, suggesting food for healing, testing, explanation of results. Arm yourself with this knowledge before it is too late! you can prevent harmful debilitating autoimmune diseases!!
Foreign voices become dear friends, whispering in my ear. Some last long after the story has ended, heard, then, by all whom I touch.
Book requires accompanying PDF... But I can't find it so hard to test her advice
I have to listen to it again! She provided such detailed information and correlations. I knew some of the things she lays out in the book. I know them because I listen to my body, even though doctors do not agree with my observations. So glad to hear what I consider a sane, non mainstream perspective that is results oriented.
This is a must read for anyone with any of these: pain, inflammation, rashes, fatigue, joint swelling.... pretty much any condition whether or not autoimmune in nature by diagnosis.
Dr Blum tells a common sense, science-backed story of healing and recovery. A friend is being weaned off of MS drugs by her physician because of this book, but prevention, to me is its greatest value. Everyone should read this book to help prevent autoimmune disease.
This is a step by step book; one good to read and set down while implementing the lifestyle changes she recommends.
