The way autoimmune disease is viewed and treated is undergoing a major change as an estimated 50 million Americans (and growing) suffer from these conditions. For many patients, the key to true wellness is in holistic treatment, although they might not know how to begin their journey to total recovery. The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook, from Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt of, is a comprehensive guide to living healthfully with autoimmune disease. While conventional medicine is limited to medication or even surgical fixes, Trescott and Alt introduce a complementary solution that focuses on seven key steps to recovery: inform, collaborate, nourish, rest, breathe, move, and connect. Each step demystifies the process to reclaim total mind and body health. With five autoimmune conditions between them, Trescott and Alt have achieved astounding results using the premises laid out in the book. The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook goes well beyond nutrition and provides the missing link so that you can get back to living a vibrant, healthy life.

There are more and more resources out there for living with chronic diseases, this in itself is a great thing. But I think that where this book has great imagery and intention, it lacks in practical use. Often the case with books like this for people with no background in health terminology. I was excited to check this book out and was hugely disappointed. Its VERY WORDY, long passages with ok info, from clinical experience not the latest and greatest advice. This book is well intentioned with nice imagery but is not effective as a handbook. Check out something like The New Health Rules for a more practical day to day reference.
