Product description

Hailed by Mark Hyman, MD, as "a ray of light and hope" for autoimmune sufferers, this groundbreaking book provides research and solutions for those affected by autoimmune disorders including Crohn's disease, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and more. In the first book of its kind, journalist Donna Jackson Nakazawa examines nearly 100 debilitating autoimmune diseases--such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, Crohn's disease, type 1 diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis--that cause the body to destroy itself, mistakenly attacking healthy cells as the immune system fights off bacteria, viruses, and other invaders. As Nakazawa share the vivid, heartbreaking stories, including her own, of people living with these mysterious, chronic, and often hard-to-diagnose illnesses, she explores the alarming and unexpected connection between this deadly crisis and the countless environmental triggers we're exposed to every day: heavy metals, toxins, pesticides, viruses, chemicals in the foods we eat, and more. With the help of leading experts, Nakazawa explores revolutionary preventions, treatments, and cures emerging around the world and offers practical advice for protecting your immune system and reducing your risk of autoimmune disease in the future.

"For the first time sufferers from the epidemic of autoimmune disease are offered a ray of hope and understanding about why their bodies have rebelled against themselves. Seriously asking the question "why," Donna Jackson Nakazawa provides answers and a roadmap for recovery which just doesn't exist with conventional medicine." -- Mark Hyman, MD, Founder and Medical Director of The UltraWellness Center; Author of the "New York Times" bestselling "UltraMetabolism, The UltraSimpleDiet," and "UltraPrevention"; and Editor in Chief, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine
