A leader in the paleo and functional medicine worlds introduces an accessible, easy-to-follow, and scientifically-proven plan for preventing and reversing the full spectrum of autoimmune diseases. 65,000 first printing.


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.

I found Amy Myers very credible and knowledgeable. She is MD and has an autoimmune disease and tried many solutions until she found this one. Also the previous comment is misleading, she recommends working with your physician but also informs the reader about the side effects of the current treatments for autoimmune diseases. What convinced me was the fact that she gave up her vegan diet because meat was necessary to provide her with the nutrients she needed to stay healthy. However, it's a tough regime to follow.

This book is like the latest fad diet. I believe it preys on people's desire for quick fixes to complicated medical situations. Author advocates people remove prescribed medications without doctor advice. People will "feel better" and can stop medication after 30 days on her diet. I believe this can endanger people who try her diet.

I read this book per a request from my Dr. I was very put off by the strict protocol but I can see the value of it. If you've suffered with an Autoimmune disease and medication has stopped being effective take the time to read through this book. I'm working on eliminating many foods and the recipes in here are pretty good. She also speaks to people who've little time which I appreciate. Batch cooking many meals will help in a pinch and this book has weekly meal plans which are helpful. Get used to NOT eating sweet breakfast foods. The nice thing is tastebuds quickly adapt. I found I feel much better eating a gluten free, dairy free and mostly sugar free diet. It takes some adjustment but the recipes in this book help.

To say that the Myers Way is easy to follow is really misleading. Almost everything you can be used to eating such as oatmeal, pancakes, rice, tea or coffee are off limits. It is true you can lose weight on this program and I have lost ten pounds that I did not want or need to lose! I went from 110 pounds to less than one hundred eating what she recommends.
