Do you have a sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it's actually normal to you? 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. Here, Dr. Susan Blum, an expert 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. Each section includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple dishes to jump-start the healing process.--From publisher description.

If you're not willing to change what you've been doing which led to disease, don't expect to heal. The increasing amount of research shows evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, that removing specific foods from the diet is crucial, but also being intentional about healing leaky gut. So it does include, but not limited to, eliminating certain foods for a time, then reintroducing things one at a time. I did not like it either, but it made a huge difference! I believe gluten (and most or all grains) and dairy from the diet for a time is beneficial to ALL people who suffer from leaky gut, allergies, or autoimmune disease. It may not be forever, but during the healing period it IS crucial.

If you're not willing to give up gluten and dairy, then don't bother with this book. The author bangs on this throughout the book, which detracts from whatever other useful advice she gives. Gluten and dairy free diets help a lot of people, but they are not the answer for everyone.
