One of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine shares her proven four-step program to treat, reverse, and prevent autoimmune conditions and repair your immune system.

The most prevalent form of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune diseases affect nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet, our exposures to chemicals, heavy metals, antibiotics, and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions of people to suffer from diseases like Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more. Now, Dr. Susan Blum describes the four-step plan that she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, strengthen their immune systems, and prevent future illness.

Dr. Blum’s innovative method shows how to use food as medicine; understand the connection between stress and health; heal the gut and digestive system; and optimize liver function. Including a workbook to help you design your own personal treatment program and forty recipes for dishes that work to repair the immune system, Your Immune System Recovery Plan is a groundbreaking, revolutionary way for people to transform their health.
