From the Back Cover
The Definitive Guide to Preventing and Reversing Autoimmunity
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.
The Autoimmune Solution is a medical breakthrough, a prescriptive and easy-to-follow program designed to heal symptoms of inflammation and autoimmune disorders, including:
allergies • obesity • asthma • psoriasis • fibromyalgia • lupus • rheumatoid arthritis • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis • multiple sclerosis • ulcerative colitis • Crohn’s disease scleroderma • chronic fatigue syndrome • celiac disease

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.
I wanted to wait at least 6 months before giving a review because reviews are useless if you haven't given it some time and effort. I have been on Amy's program more strictly for about 5 months and I can say it's a life changer. My father has horrible psoriasis and I have been terrified of getting it my whole life. I have seborrheic dermatitis and have never been able to get it under control as well as a host of other small ailments. I am 32 years old and thought I was relatively healthy. I realized after reading this book that I had a very bad yeast overgrowth in my gut with all the symptoms that go along with that. So that's where I started....
I first did the diet changes and the yeast/candida program by using the caprylic acid and candisol every day for 3 months. I noticed a huge difference in just 2 weeks. All symptoms were gone (I won't get into them, but trust me, not pretty) and what was the most amazing was I stopped craving any carbs/sugar and 5 months later this is still the case. You could put a fresh baked croissant in front of my face and I don't care. On top of the candida program I take the L-glutamine, Glutathione, Fish Oil (Metagenics), probiotics, and Ashwhaganda (which is a recommendation from Dr. Kulreet's The Prime) as well as Magnesium every night. I follow her diet program, but not to an insane degree. I have sugar sometimes, as well as cheese, and wine. I don't have full blown autoimmune disease so there is definitely more leniency with the diet part-- but I really avoid gluten as much as I can.
The biggest changes I have noticed are no bloating, regularity, my skin looks great (people tell me a lot that I am "glowing"-- seriously no one has ever said that to me until now), my seborrheic dermatitis is GONE, I have way more energy, less anxiety, brain fog, no cravings, and I had chronic pain in my forearms and elbows from nerve entrapment-- it's 95% relieved. Also, I have always been slim, but since I have started this I lost those last few pounds that bothered me and I don't have any trouble keeping them off now.
Yes, the supplements aren't cheap. The diet guidelines can take some getting used to. But there are so many things that can be taken out of this book and applied to your life that will help you feel better, even if you can't do it all. It is a must read!!
