I read this book as I suffered from complications due to Sjogren's, Chronic Fatigue, Inflammation, Circulation and Nerve issues, Ovarian and Breast cysts, Fybromialgia and Raynaud's. I have read most of the books related to auto immune conditions and this book is very informative. Much of what Dr. Blum suggests in her book is what my current integrative rheumatoligist practices. However, most books, including this one, share stories of full recoveries without emphasizing that the healing process takes time as a weakened immune system is sensitive and it often feels like a maze to find what works and doesn't for each individual with an auto-immune condition. Recovery is definitely a journey and there are setbacks through the process. I did get lost in all the supplements Dr. Blum recommends - many that I cannot tolerate but there are some that have been extremely helpful. A lot of the tests she recommends are also very helpful when you first are diagnosed and overwhelmed. I now no longer have to take prescription medications, antacids, Evoxac pills to make saliva daily and no longer have a running fever, neuropathy problems, severe inflammation, migraines, clotting, fatigue or joint pain and my chronic stomach problems are improving as I heal my gut which reacted to many foods and supplements. Along with a detox diet similar to what Dr. Blum recommends (but more defined towards low histamines and alkaline - geared towards lessening the acidosis, ammonia and sulfate levels in order to detoxify and methylate) as well as, supporting my adrenals, supplements and test recommendations that are indicative to my recovery and deficiencies, I implemented homeopathy and acupuncture as well as the NAET allergy elimination treatments at first.
