Autoimmune disease specialist Dr. Amy Myers makes a powerful case for her approach to dietary healing, which she discovered after she developed Graves’ disease. The initial meal plan she proposes for addressing autoimmune and inflammation issues is restrictive and demands discipline, but it’s designed to reset and clear your system – and you can add more food choices after 30 days. By then, Myers says, you should have more energy and fewer symptoms of inflammation. However, she suggests continuing to follow many of the restrictions, such as not eating dairy or gluten. Her plan may help you identify foods that trigger symptoms that have tormented you for a long time. Myers offers excellent supplementary material, including charts, menus, case studies and an extensive resources list. While never giving medical advice, getAbstract finds that her thoughtful program may offer useful guidance.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to identify “toxins” in the world around you,
- Why you should remove “toxic foods” from your diet, and
- How you can heal the effects of “inflammatory or autoimmune” symptoms.
