Publisher's Summary

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

No Solution, just a quack trying to sell vitamins

I have been struggling with my thyroid and psoriasis for years (since I was about 16-17 years old). I have been desperate to mange my symptoms. But this quack of a doctor spends 75% of the book just telling you that you are probably sick and that the Meyer's way will fix it, all of it. It's very simple the meyer's way is just a glorified diet where the only thing you can eat are chicken/fish, lettuce, and water. If you don't take the magical supplements (that she sells) and live off of the most boring food ever you will have to take medicine and die. I was so hoping this would be the answer to my health issues, when really it was just another snake oil salesman.

What an annoying voice!!!!!

I really liked the book's information, but I feel like the author is a snotty jerk. Maybe it really was written with a snotty attitude or maybe it was just the speaker. I know for sure that I never want to listen to her speak again. As much as I was interested in the book, it took me a while to get through it because I couldn't stand her voice & attitude. It made my baby cry!

Paleo Diet For Autoimmune Disease

Be aware that this is a Paleo diet and not suitable for people who are vegans, vegetarians or just trying to limit their intake of animal based proteins. It would have been helpful if that information was made clear in the review or publisher introduction and overview. The diet presented here is very rigid and limited and there are no variations or alternatives for non meat eaters.

A positive message about autoimmunity

Narration was delightful, and the message is a rare comprehensive message that autoimmunity can be improved or eliminated through diet and modern knowledge of what triggers the immune system, with fresh ideas based on science and emerging genetic discoveries. First book that left me in an uplifted mood, unlike all the negative stuff we get from modern medical doctor-robots practicing outdated and incorrect science in 7-minute doses.

Worst book ever.

This is an incredibly annoying infomercial. If I could give no stars, I would. Narcissistic self promoting marketer. Awful awful woman. I might actually ask for my money back. Was I clear about how much I disliked this book?

The Worst Paleo-esque Diet Book Ever

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The writer came through as self centered and egotistical. She said, "the Myer's Way" a million times and then never really said what the way was. It was inferred by all the fear mongering she was doing but never spelled out. This was probably because she's just rebranding Paleo to cash in. Also, We get that she's a MD but who cares anymore about them. Facts are facts; eating Paleo is better than almost any other diet format but no one gets to rebrand the human diet.

Has The Autoimmune Solution turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just her.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tanya Eby?

anyone else. She didn't help the book sound any less egotistical. She does sound smug.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, it made all the other Paleo books look that much better.

Any additional comments?

I feel like she reached in my pocket and robbed me. This was a first and I won't soon forget. I hope her practice goes well and that she heals patients like she claims but she should have opened a big can of humiliation before publishing this trash.

Great book!

Highly recommend! Everyone should read this book- even if you dont have an autoimmune diagnosis Im willing to bet most ppl are somewhere on the spectrum and have harmful inflammation effecting their health in ways they might not be aware of. This information in this book is easy to understand and implement- and if followed correctly can yeild changes much quicker that traditional approaches!

Good info but...

I enjoyed this book after I managed to get over the narrators voice which I can only describe as Disney-cute-robot-in-breathy-sexy mode, yea cringeworthy! She sounds just like Hank Moody's daughter, ugh. Anyway, the info in the book is by no means original or ground breaking but it's presented well with some good science bits for the geek in us. Dr. Myers also goes into lifestyle changes where other books tend not to; air filtration for example. Great to see another MD jumping on the Functional Medicine band wagon.

Depressing but mesmerising!

If like me, you have an autoimmune disorder that the doctors simply have no answer for other than drugs or surgery then this book could well be the solution. I've searched high and low for support and advice on how to handle disorders which are debilitating, distressing and quite frankly frightening, without much success. I randomly came across this and glad I did. Listened to 6 hours straight as I was mesmerised by the similarities and found myself nodding in agreement throughout. I have ordered a lot of supplements off the back of this book. I'll be starting the diet this week, and will update on my progress. In short - if you have an autoimmune disorder this book will resonate, and if like me you're at your wits end - there's no harm in following the simple nutrition and supplementation programme to (hopefully) get you back to good health.

If u have health issues read this

Yes it's a bit over the top of a diet but Iv been living with all sorts of strange health issues for years and this definitely helps it and so much of what Amy says just makes sense
It's just annoying that other people can get away with eating gluten etc etc and live a Fairly normal life

Very good value for money ! Lots of info

Dr Myers is sincere and passionate - I've been through a lot
that she talks about and she's certainly on message for
the times. No problem with this book. It's work ! you must
be prepared to do the work.

Interesting but narrator has an annoying voice!

What did you like best about The Autoimmune Solution? What did you like least?

I should have read some reviews before purchasing. I am only a few hours in, the subject is really interesting but I am not sure I will make it to the end with the annoying narrator, who speaks in quite a strange manner. I am British, the narrator is American (I am guessing)...if that bothers you then don't buy the audible version of this book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Changed the narrator and the style of how the book is presented.

How could the performance have been better?

Different voice.

Did The Autoimmune Solution inspire you to do anything?

I haven't finished listening to it...

Must read!!!!!

Everyone should read this. Not just those with "autoimmune" disease. Amazing. Anyone who has somewhat depleted immunity or is at the nasty diseases end of the spectrum.

Now I get it!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I think everyone should read this book. Even if you're not on the 'spectrum', you would gain a better understanding of those who are, and perhaps a better insight into the everyday discomfort that we all seem to take for granted.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

Not keen on the narration. I just didn't think it was the 'voice' of a professional physician.

Any additional comments?

This book has confirmed to me why I've had so many issues, and has given me a direction to fix them. I will never touch gluten again, and can't believe how different I feel without it. And that's just the beginning.

Great practical guide

If you could sum up The Autoimmune Solution in three words, what would they be?

Great practical guide

Any additional comments?

Read the PDF available through Audible, and the last chapter on the Myers website. If you are going to do the diet, for $3 (US) you can buy the 4 weeks weekly shopping lists, which are great.
