About Sarah Ballantyne

Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D., earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at the age of 26. She spent the next four years doing research on innate immunity and inflammation before becoming a stay-at-home mom. After her second daughter was born, she began to experiment with the Paleo lifestyle. It had an amazing effect on her health. Over time, she healed herself of a long laundry list of physical complaints including irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, and the autoimmune disorder, Lichen Planus, an inflammatory skin condition. Inspired by her success, Dr. Ballantyne created the popular health blog and became co-host of a top-rated podcast, The Paleo View. Her passion for providing straightforward explanations of the science behind her diet and lifestyle recommendations for managing autoimmune disease, plus her love of food and cooking, form the foundations of The Paleo Approach.

Our customer reviews

This book is an incredible bible of health information for EVERYONE, not just the AI population! As a fellow nutrition- and health geek, I have spent many happy hours combing all the fastidiously researched textual explanations, sidebars, charts, tables, etc. and everything is backed up by endnotes. Sarah's opus is breathtaking and belongs in EVERY doctor's office and family home. Love more

This book changed my life and will hopefully change yours. I was eating paleo lifestyle before and buying books and getting recipes on pinterest. When this came out it was dialed in on autoimmune disease and i was diagnosed with MS earlier this year. When i started deleting ingredients that were harmful towards my system and actually causing sx's, i started feeling so much better. I no longer require pain meds, no PT or chiropractic work and i am working out doing crossfit!!! i have never felt better and will spread the good word about this book forevershow more

The minute I got it out of the package, I was impressed. The charts & illustrations contribute hugely to information conveyed, and boy is there a lot of it! But it is written in a style that is accessible & only a chapter in I was having "Aha!" moments related to my situation. Thank you so much, Sarah, for this life-changing more

I call this my AI bible. I admit, some things I have to re-read a few times because the science is so beyond me... but I think that is a selling point for many people who want to know the WHY behind autoimmunity and food's effect on it. Sarah breaks down every detail as to why tailoring your diet and lifestyle will help with recovery of symptoms and even put an autoimmune disease into remission. This book was probably one of the greatest investments I could have made for taking back my health. ~ Erin @ Enjoying this Journeyshow more
