From the Back Cover
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 and reverse a wide range of inflammatory-related symptoms and diseases, including allergies, obesity, asthma, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, IBS, chronic headaches, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
The Myers Way is built on four pillars:
- Eliminating toxic foods, such as sugar and caffeine, and inflammatory foods, like dairy, gluten, and grains, which disrupt our digestive system.
- Introducing restorative ingredients and sup-plements, such as quality proteins, healthy fats, and probiotics, to repair the gut.
- Identifying environmental toxins in everyday products like shampoo, soap, cosmetics, detergent, and other household products.
- Healing autoimmune-related infections while relieving the mental, emotional, and physical stress that exacerbate the immune system’s response to external toxins.
Through this program, Dr. Myers has suc-cessfully treated thousands of patients. Whether you’re battling multiple sclerosis or Graves’ disease, or you simply want to put an end to nagging minor symptoms, The Autoimmune Solution is a medical breakthrough, a prescriptive and easy-to-follow program designed to fight and defeat the full spectrum of autoimmune diseases.

I have suffered from acid reflux since 2000 (treated with Nexium), chronic allergy induced sinusitis since 2001 (managed with Allegra, Astelin, and Singulair), acne all through high school and my adult life. Graves' Disease added hand tremors, hair loss, muscle weakness, insomnia, general fatigue, IBS symptoms, restlessness, itching, memory loss, rapid heart rate (resting HR of 102 bpm) and more. My thyroid levels at diagnoses were 3 times above normal and I was put on heart medication and thyroid blocking medication (30 mg). After 6 weeks at 30 mg, I felt significantly better. My thyroid levels began to normalize and my doctor cut me to 15 mg. It was awful in about 2 days. So he bumped me up to 20 mg and I felt okay. After 6 weeks T3 and T4 were looking good, still no TSH. He dropped me again to 15 mg. Again in 2 or 3 days I felt awful so we went back to 20 mg. Another 6 weeks went by and we tried yet again to drop me to 15 mg. This time I was also taking prednisone for pain so the lower dose of thyroid blocker worked fine...until the prednisone wore off. So back up to 20 again. This is when I got really frustrated and started researching books. After a couple of days I decided on The Autoimmune Solution.
While I read the book I drastically reduced dairy and gluten and immediately began to sleep better. In fact, it was better sleep than I've gotten in as long as I can remember with 2 years of Fitbit sleep logs to back it up. That fueled my desire to follow the plan even more. I dropped to 15 mg again on April 8th. It was going fairly well with the reduced dairy and gluten protocols. Even more promising. I fully started the plan on May 1st, 2017. By May 9th, I was experiencing more hypothyroid symptoms rather than hyper. My hands and feet were freezing and I was tired. With 1.5 hours of being wrapped up in two warm blankets, my hands and feet were still freezing. I called my endocrinologist and was instructed to get my labs done early. Although it takes 6-8 weeks of a dosage change to be reflected in blood tests, I had one after 10 days on The Myers Way and only 4 weeks on the lower dose. TSH returned!!! And both other thyroid levels were in normal. Incredible!
Now I'm off Nexium and ALL of my allergy medicines. I feel better than I've ever felt in my adult life. As an added bonus, I've lost at least 6 pounds. While weight loss was not my goal, it's a nice added benefit. My symptoms have resolved. My resting heart rate continues to drop to levels I've never seen in my life. I could not be happier that I made the decision to purchase this book and take control of my health.
I'm a real person with real data. I have labs and tracking on my Fitbit to provide solid evidence that this works. I buy my supplements at the local compounding pharmacies and here on Amazon.
As a nurse, I am exposed to the reality of conventional medicine everyday. Working in the ICU has been rewarding but also devastating seeing the number of lifestyle-related illnesses. Doctors are simply medicating symptoms, prescribing more medication for the side effects and our nation is continuing to get sicker. Dr. Myers’ approach sets her apart and this book offers an alternative approach that actually addresses the underlying causes of disease. Because autoimmunity is on the rise, I am grateful knowing that there are MD’s like Amy Myers that take a functional medicine approach and share the information with the world.
Also, some of the other autoimmune books referenced in previous reviews are great but NOTHING like this book. In fact one in particular is full of research and information and even with my medical background, I find it hard to comprehend and apply. The Autoimmune Solution doesn’t stop at the education part, and that is what sets it apart from any other book out there. Dr. Myers goes above and beyond to make sure that the reader can practically apply the knowledge and gives you a plan to carry it out. The recipes I have made are AMAZING. This book is now my motivation to take charge of my health, I have never been more excited to do so until reading this book!
Not only does Dr. Myers explain the causes of autoimmunity and share her story and real life examples, but also she equips the reader, educates and even empowers them to take health into their own hands. The program in the book includes a diet and a comprehensive approach to prevent all the factors that can lead to autoimmunity. Don’t even think about buying this book, just do it! Whether you have an autoimmune disease or not you will greatly benefit from and appreciate this book. I have never been more motivated, inspired and encouraged to lead a healthier life.
THANK YOU DR. MYERS FOR SHARING THIS INFORMATION, GIVING US TOOLS AND SHARING YOUR JOURNEY IN THE AUTOIMMUNE SOLUTION!!
