Publisher's Summary

Millions of people suffer from autoimmunity whether they know it or not. The root cause of most weight gain, brain and mood problems, and fatigue, autoimmunity can take years - or even decades - for symptoms and a clear diagnosis to arise. Through years of research, Dr. Tom O'Bryan has discovered that autoimmunity is actually a spectrum, and many people experiencing general malaise are already on it. And while autoimmune diseases, such as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and lupus, have become the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer, many people affected are left in the dark. The good news is that many autoimmune conditions can be reversed through a targeted protocol designed to heal the autoimmune system, 70 percent of which is located in the gut.

The Autoimmune Fix includes two comprehensive three-week plans: In the first three weeks, you'll follow a paleo-inspired diet, during which you cut out gluten, sweets, and dairy - the three primary culprits behind autoimmunity. Once the dietary changes have been addressed, The Autoimmune Fix focuses on the other causes of autoimmunity, such as genetics, other dietary issues, and microbiome.

Incredible!

Loved the book. Tom O Bryan has a wonderful way of explaining the connection of inflammation to subtle, less than desirable, symptoms we are facing daily ie. fatigue, bloating, gas, lethargy. And he provides the fix in a realistic way in that it can take some time for the body to heal. He provides hope that the body can heal itself once we have the knowledge on how to look after it.

Great book just missed a couple things

Excellent dietary advice. Approaches from a clinical view point without burying people with jargon. Enough to explain. Not too much to confuse.

The points missed

Dr O'Bryan...you're a Chiroptactor, at least a mention to the profession would have been an easy tie into the book and material. If the body is not functioning via the CNS properly, then we are already at a disadvantage.
Second...the restaurant section I disagree with. Restaurants provide a service and product. Buyer beware. If you have large dietary constrictions then if a restaurant cannot accommodate it is not their issue. They are not obliged to comply. If they can...awesome.

Excellent Book!

I’m an MD in my residency and absolutely loved this book! So much of medical education does not include training in nutrition. As I go further in my training, I’m learning medicine is a practice of disease management. Absence of disease does not always mean there is an absence of ailment. I’m so excited books like this one are being published for the public, encouraging everyone to take responsibility for their health.

This book also helped me personally with my own health! I’m active and thought I was doing my best to stay healthy. Since reading this book, I feel better than I have in a long time!

Great book, horribly voiced

Tom O’Bryan is brilliant, no doubt about it.
The book is sadly almost impossible to listen to because of the horrible over-acting of the guy to reads it.
Super annoying, should be re-done with someone speaking friggin normal

LIFE CHANGING!

I have been diagnosed with 3 different autoimmune diseases. This book opened my eyes to the possibilities and makes the life changes seem manageable and doable for the everyday person like myself.

Incredible guidance

As I am just learning about auto immune conditions this book has been crucial to my understanding. My family history predisposes me for auto immune and in my late 30s I am already showing symptoms of arthritis. I want to thank Dr. Bryan and Dr. Bland for their work in this book. It does a great job of explaining in laymen’s terms the importantance of a healthy diet that benefits those who may be on the auto immune spectrum.

A Must Read for Improving Your Health

Tom O'Bryan does an exceptional job of covering what is causing less than optimal health and goes into great detail about how to return to optimal health. This work is uplifting in that there are simple practical ways to go about changing our health. However some may find this simple approach less than easy as it does require being disciplined about what you put into your body, and many will not be willing to follow the simple practical advice. These people will be unfortunate as the symptoms of disease may take many years to develop. The good news is that there are simple easy tests he describes so that persons wishing to improve their long term health can have done and the apply the easy to follow suggestions in this book. I am buying the hard copy to go in and highlight the key concepts and the tests so I can have my physician order the tests an d assist me in improving my health. And I will be listening to this multiple times, as it is so full of great information.
