Publisher's Summary

Over 90 percent of the population suffers from inflammation or an autoimmune disorder. Until now, conventional medicine has said there is no cure. Minor irritations like rashes and runny noses are ignored, while chronic and debilitating diseases like Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis are handled with a cocktail of toxic treatments that fail to address their root cause. But it doesn't have to be this way.

In The Autoimmune Solution, Dr. Amy Myers, a renowned leader in functional medicine, offers her medically proven approach to prevent a wide range of inflammatory-related symptoms and diseases, including allergies, obesity, asthma, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, IBS, chronic headaches, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Paleo Diet For Autoimmune Disease

Be aware that this is a Paleo diet and not suitable for people who are vegans, vegetarians or just trying to limit their intake of animal based proteins. It would have been helpful if that information was made clear in the review or publisher introduction and overview. The diet presented here is very rigid and limited and there are no variations or alternatives for non meat eaters.

where is the PDF enhancement?????

the book was very informative gave lots of tips for those dealing with autoimmune disease. But the audiobook refers to PDF enhancement and appendices which are not provided.

What an annoying voice!!!!!

I really liked the book's information, but I feel like the author is a snotty jerk. Maybe it really was written with a snotty attitude or maybe it was just the speaker. I know for sure that I never want to listen to her speak again. As much as I was interested in the book, it took me a while to get through it because I couldn't stand her voice & attitude. It made my baby cry!

Can be condensed to 10 pages

A lot of health info and has some general tips on a good diet and only a little bit of what to eat.

Author spent too much time on what we have been doing wrong -80% of the book.

I learned something. I know what I should stop doing But still not sure what I should do exactly.

I feel books like this can be condensed to 10 pages. A lot of fillers of unnecessary examples.

The Worst Paleo-esque Diet Book Ever

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The writer came through as self centered and egotistical. She said, "the Myer's Way" a million times and then never really said what the way was. It was inferred by all the fear mongering she was doing but never spelled out. This was probably because she's just rebranding Paleo to cash in. Also, We get that she's a MD but who cares anymore about them. Facts are facts; eating Paleo is better than almost any other diet format but no one gets to rebrand the human diet.

Has The Autoimmune Solution turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just her.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tanya Eby?

anyone else. She didn't help the book sound any less egotistical. She does sound smug.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, it made all the other Paleo books look that much better.

Any additional comments?

I feel like she reached in my pocket and robbed me. This was a first and I won't soon forget. I hope her practice goes well and that she heals patients like she claims but she should have opened a big can of humiliation before publishing this trash.

No Solution, just a quack trying to sell vitamins

I have been struggling with my thyroid and psoriasis for years (since I was about 16-17 years old). I have been desperate to mange my symptoms. But this quack of a doctor spends 75% of the book just telling you that you are probably sick and that the Meyer's way will fix it, all of it. It's very simple the meyer's way is just a glorified diet where the only thing you can eat are chicken/fish, lettuce, and water. If you don't take the magical supplements (that she sells) and live off of the most boring food ever you will have to take medicine and die. I was so hoping this would be the answer to my health issues, when really it was just another snake oil salesman.

Redundant

Fourth-grade biology level, at best.
Every chapter regurgitates the same information already stated ad nauseam, gives a sliver of new information and tells you repeatedly about how wonderful the Meyer's System works.
Tanya Eby talks likes she's reading a story to preschoolers.
Aweful. Waste of money.

I bought the audiobook get all the way to freedom from autoimmune disorder to find there is no PDF. Very upset that the book all builds up to the Meyer plan, then there is no plan.

A positive message about autoimmunity

Narration was delightful, and the message is a rare comprehensive message that autoimmunity can be improved or eliminated through diet and modern knowledge of what triggers the immune system, with fresh ideas based on science and emerging genetic discoveries. First book that left me in an uplifted mood, unlike all the negative stuff we get from modern medical doctor-robots practicing outdated and incorrect science in 7-minute doses.

Depressing but mesmerising!

If like me, you have an autoimmune disorder that the doctors simply have no answer for other than drugs or surgery then this book could well be the solution. I've searched high and low for support and advice on how to handle disorders which are debilitating, distressing and quite frankly frightening, without much success. I randomly came across this and glad I did. Listened to 6 hours straight as I was mesmerised by the similarities and found myself nodding in agreement throughout. I have ordered a lot of supplements off the back of this book. I'll be starting the diet this week, and will update on my progress. In short - if you have an autoimmune disorder this book will resonate, and if like me you're at your wits end - there's no harm in following the simple nutrition and supplementation programme to (hopefully) get you back to good health.

Good info but...

I enjoyed this book after I managed to get over the narrators voice which I can only describe as Disney-cute-robot-in-breathy-sexy mode, yea cringeworthy! She sounds just like Hank Moody's daughter, ugh. Anyway, the info in the book is by no means original or ground breaking but it's presented well with some good science bits for the geek in us. Dr. Myers also goes into lifestyle changes where other books tend not to; air filtration for example. Great to see another MD jumping on the Functional Medicine band wagon.

If u have health issues read this

Yes it's a bit over the top of a diet but Iv been living with all sorts of strange health issues for years and this definitely helps it and so much of what Amy says just makes sense
It's just annoying that other people can get away with eating gluten etc etc and live a Fairly normal life

Meat is not healthy

I enjoyed the informative depth of this book, however throughout the book Myers explains to reduce inflammatory foods from the diet to heal, I agree with a lot of what she says, however meat is an inflammatory food, fact, and I don’t agree it is healthy. It has been linked to diabetes and many many diseases, one of many being heart disease. Atherosclerotic plaque builds up in the arteries potentially leading to a heart attack and stroke. Yes everything she explains about gluten makes sense and I’m sure it would reverse autoimmune disorder, but converting to eating meat will cause a whole host of other problems. I also think it is very controversial that she talks about how she doesn’t like to kill an animal, but does it because ‘the human body is designed to eat meat’, which again isn’t true. I think we are all different and can’t all go by one ‘diet’. If you have to disguise meat in your meal because you hate the idea of meat then surely you shouldn’t eat it? If you are put off then use your intuition. I have been vegan for 6 years and healed my skin from acne and healed my gut, I am no longer anaemic and have so much energy. I also take probiotics and don’t eat gluten. I eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and legumes. Sometimes grains but always gluten free and rarely. I feel very well! And happy, I believe if you eat good quality organic local GMO free food, homemade, not processed, then that is all you need. High carb, low fat is what the body favours, fact. High fat causes a lot of problems unfortunately this paleo, Keto is a FAD. See https://nutritionfacts.org Dr Gregor :-) he goes through and explains real clinical studies and what they mean.

the mayers way dosent support plant based

To be honest I was shocked about the amount of meat in this diet plan.

I appreciate the information about toxins in our enviromnet and the science behind most of the information except for extreme meat eating (breakfast, lunch and dinner) all studies shows that extensive meat eating increases inflammation.

I enjoyed the book, good advice on diet mangment in social gatherings and dealing with drs when you have chronic conditions.

I felt the book included a lot of bragging about personal success rather than the reader.
I will look for more books on the topic that are not as focused on the writers brand name advertising.

You are what you consume

The voice was sometimes a bit like and automated voice, perfect American.
The evidence could be more complete, but it's at least as authoritative as your GP's 5 minutes.
Dr Myers, while continually promoting herself and her way, with anecdotes of when her patients came in broken and left fixed, tells a lot of truths about the need for lifestyle change to best autoimmunity.
If you have rheumatoid arthritis or another autoimmune disease it's ESSENTIAL reading/listening. For anyone interested in avoiding these diseases of our age, it is also excellent background awareness.

Everyone should read this. Not just those with "autoimmune" disease. Amazing. Anyone who has somewhat depleted immunity or is at the nasty diseases end of the spectrum.

Frustrating book.

audible should have a direct link with food list and recipes that we can have. The entire book is about what we can't have, which is pretty much everything.

Now I get it!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I think everyone should read this book. Even if you're not on the 'spectrum', you would gain a better understanding of those who are, and perhaps a better insight into the everyday discomfort that we all seem to take for granted.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

Not keen on the narration. I just didn't think it was the 'voice' of a professional physician.

Any additional comments?

This book has confirmed to me why I've had so many issues, and has given me a direction to fix them. I will never touch gluten again, and can't believe how different I feel without it. And that's just the beginning.

NOT based on HUMAN studies

There are a lot of great things in this book, however it did not deliver on anything of true value for me because it was based on many animal studies which does not always occur the same in humans and it doesnt actually give me what I was looking for in the book. however I believe she thinks she is correct and I give her credit for doing her best work. however I would recommend she cross references her work with the cited human studies (randomized, comtrolled and dou le blinded placebo controlled unbiased clinical trials that are heavily torn apart on nutritionfacts.org because she is essentially using placebo to cause people to get further into disease. it's truly sad to hear. however I am superbly happy that people are still somehow having amazing results. i hope one day she could reach out to Dr. Michael Gregor and conbined their minds to come up with a much better reginen for us all. i would like redund of this book though because I think it needs the proper information to help myself. i dontwant to be a test subject and case study while they try to figure things our

Great practical guide

If you could sum up The Autoimmune Solution in three words, what would they be?

Great practical guide

Any additional comments?

Read the PDF available through Audible, and the last chapter on the Myers website. If you are going to do the diet, for $3 (US) you can buy the 4 weeks weekly shopping lists, which are great.
