Do you have crud in the blood? Millions of people suffer from autoimmunity whether they know it or not. The root cause of most weight gain, brain and mood problems, and fatigue, autoimmunity can take years-or even decades-for symptoms and a clear diagnosis to arise. Through years of research, Dr. Tom O'Bryan has discovered that autoimmunity is actually a spectrum, and many people experiencing general malaise are already on it. And while autoimmune diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and lupus, have become the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer, many people affected are left in the dark. The good news is that many autoimmune conditions can be reversed through a targeted protocol designed to heal the autoimmune system, 70 percent of which is located in the gut. The Autoimmune Fix includes two comprehensive 3-week plans- In the first 3 weeks, you'll follow a Paleo-inspired diet during which you cut out gluten, sweets, and dairy-the three primary culprits behind autoimmunity. Once the dietary changes have been addressed, The Autoimmune Fix focuses on the other causes of autoimmunity such as genetics, other dietary issues, and microbiome. The Autoimmune Fix provides a practical and much-needed guide to navigating these increasingly common conditions to help you feel better and develop a plan that works for you.

Book presents the scientific logic behind autoimmunity, with noted studies referenced. O'Bryan then lays out an anti-inflammatory diet of the three most common foods. Eliminate gluten, dairy, and sugar for three weeks...see how you feel. Its a great starting point in an overwhelming topic. (Some anti-inflammatory experts recommend eliminating all possible inflammatory foods...its nice to get started in a less drastic way.)

Speaks a lot about gluten, its varying sensitivities, and why there is no one easy test to determine your personal gluten sensitivity status.

Reads well and includes a small handful of recipes.

This book has information that should help many people improve their autoimmune conditions. It's fairly easy to read and understand. There is a recipe section and he explains how to go about changing one's diet. I'm sure some people will not like his suggestion that they need to go gluten, dairy and sugar free to heal, but for someone who needs to heal the gut, there is good advice here.
