Overview

The Immune System Recovery Plan: A Doctor's 4-Step Program to Treat Autoimmune Disease by Susan Blum

One of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine shares her proven four-step program to treat, reverse, and prevent autoimmune conditions and repair your immune system.

• Are you constantly exhausted?

• Do you frequently feel sick?

• Are you hot when others are cold, or cold when everyone else is warm?

• Do you have trouble thinking clearly, aka “brain fog”?

• Do you often feel irritable?

• Are you experiencing hair loss, dry skin, or unexplained weight fluctuation?

• Do your joints ache or swell but you don’t know why?

• Do you have an overall sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it’s actually normal to you?

IF you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an autoimmune disease, and this book is the “medicine” you need. Among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune disease affects nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet; exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics; and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions to suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more. In The Immune System Recovery Plan, Dr. Susan Blum, one of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine, shares the four-step program she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, heal their immune systems, and prevent future illness.

DR. BLUM’S INNOVATIVE METHOD FOCUSES ON:

• Using food as medicine

• Understanding the stress connection

• Healing your gut and digestive system

• Optimizing liver function

Each of these sections includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple, easy-to-prepare dishes to jump-start the healing process.

The Immune System Recovery Plan is a revolutionary way for people to balance their immune systems, transform their health, and live fuller, happier lives.

A must-read for anyone with autoimmune disorders. Clearly written, well-organized, and easily understood by a non-medical professional, this book offers explanations and hope for those of us suffering from multiple health issues and autoimmune disorders.   After years of seeing multiple single system specialists, Dr. Blum's book has saved my sanity--and has helped put me on the road to health recovery!  As I suspected, there is a commonality to all of my health issues.  Functional medicine is the future, and Dr. Blum is a crusader in this field.  Thank you, Dr. Blum!

No matter what you do , do not go see this doctor. Books are one thing, but dr. Blum gives the same exact treatment to every single person who walks through her door.  Auto immune patients are unique, they all have different food sensitivities, different reactions, different root causes of their problems. But Dr. Blum puts them all on the same program. My health greatly declined after starting treatment with Dr. Blum, because she did not pay attention to my history or my bloodwork results.  Also she uses hydrogenated soybean oil in her supplements. That s a big danger. Be aware.

This book gives the best and most current information on health as related to auto immune disease. The author was recently on the Dr. Oz show and he recommended this book. I found it had new and easy to follow information. The author has her cutting edge clinic and wanted to be able to help more people. Don't miss this book. Also recommended is "Wheat Belly" by William Davis, MD.
