According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, autoimmune disease affects up to 50 million Americans-that's 1 in 12-and disease rates have tripled in the last 30 years. Modern medicine doesn't seem able to help much, but diet can make a huge difference. The autoimmune protocol (AIP) program makes specific food choices to help reduce inflammation in the body and assist in managing symptoms. In beautiful full color, Idiot's Guides: Autoimmune Cookbook is for those who seek tasty dishes that adhere to the auto-immune protocol. Featuring 120 delicious recipes, the dishes avoid all the problem ingredients that can increase inflammation-grains, dairy, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds, nightshades, and refined or processed oils and sugars- without sacrificing an ounce of flavor. The AIP method can be challenging-some of the techniques for working with substitute items are labor-intensive, and ingredients may be pricey and hard to find. Idiot's Guides: Autoimmune Cookbook is ideal for people with budget and time constraints. It sticks to quick, simple cooking techniques, as well as ingredients that shoppers can readily find. A glossary covers basic cooking terminology and technique. Information on stocking a pantry, meal plans, and shopping lists are also included.

The body's healing response to injury or infection is localized inflammation and it is normal. However, when inflammation moves beyond the local, it becomes abnormal. Much new research shows that abnormal inflammation may be linked to a variety of diseases and conditions, including heart disease, cancer, asthma, diabetes, and arthritis. Researchers suggest that diet can reverse this inflammation and the conditions and diseases caused by it. The Complete Idiot's Guide® Anti-Inflammation Cookbook-a companion to The Complete Idiot's Guide® to the Anti-Inflammation Diet-has more than 200 delicious recipes that help to reduce inflammation, along with meal plans and guidance on what to eat and not to eat.

"Leaky Gut Syndrome is often poorly understood, yet indeed is a real syndrome and may be the cause of several diseases such as depression, asthma, IBS, Crohn's, and chronic fatigue. Leaky gut diets, such as the GAPS diet and the Specific Carbohydrate diet, have been used to alleviate this syndrome, but neither diet has attained the scientific backup or recognition until now. By following a healthy gut nutritional diet, you enable the gut lining to slowly heal itself by removing the foods and harmful bacterial that cause stomach inflammation and trigger this intestinal barrier opening, allowing the body to heal and possible reverse or prevent certain diseases. Idiot's Guide: Healthy Gut Diet covers: - What your gut is and how it works, what happens when the gut's microflora become unstable, and how instability wrecks havoc on your body and autoimmune system. -Causes and contributors that do damage to intestinal lining. -How gut microflora are linked to mental health issues and disease (eating disorders, anxiety, autism, ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, etc.) and physical health (IBS, IRD, asthma, acne, etc.). -The diet's fundamental basics, including a comparison to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the GAPS Diet, and the Paleo Diet, and the diet's stages of healing. -How to start healing the gut through removing foods, in addition to better food choices and supplement inclusion. -The diet's program with meal plans and recipes (bone broths and meat stocks, fermented foods, soups, yogurt). -Preparing your home with the diet's essentials (such as food, cooking, and fermenting supplies), detoxifying the body by minimizing the home's toxins, and living the lifestyle. -The pitfalls you might experience and how to fix them, in addition to dealing with food intolerances and allergies, along with what to do when the diet isn't working."

"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson Most of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions. At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world. The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including: Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content. Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption. Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins. With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

Includes recipes from Chef Del Sroufe, author of the bestselling Forks Over Knives—The Cookbook and Better Than Vegan Nearly half of Americans take at least one prescription medicine, with almost a quarter taking three or more, as diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia grow more prevalent than ever. The problem with medicating common ailments, such as high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol, is that drugs treat symptoms—and may even improve test results—without addressing the cause: diet. Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on disease. In Food Over Medicine, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, and Glen Merzer invite the reader into a conversation about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, they share the key to getting and staying healthy for life. Backed by numerous scientific studies, Food Over Medicine details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it. Food Over Medicine reveals the power and practice of optimal nutrition in an accessible way.

The true story of a fiery young woman’s heartwarming and hilarious journey that takes her from near-death in California to a trip around the world in search of her ultimate salvation. Along the way, she discovers a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, and, most importantly, a piece of her life she never even knew she was missing. When Amy B. Scher was struck with undiagnosed late-stage, chronic Lyme disease, the best physicians in America labeled her condition incurable and potentially terminal. Deteriorating rapidly, she went on a search to save her own life—from the top experts in Los Angeles and the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis to a state-of-the-art hospital in Chicago. After exhausting all of her options in the US, she discovered a possible cure—but it was highly experimental, only available in India, and had as much of a probability of killing her as it did of curing her. Knowing the risks, Amy packed her bags anyway and flew across the world hoping to find the ultimate cure. This Is How I Save My Life is a powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination for anyone who believes in—or doubts—the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing when it seems like all hope is lost.
