More than 23 million Americans—one in twenty women—suffer from some form of autoimmune disease. The number of people living with rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, Sjogern’s Syndrome, Crohn’s disease, lupus, celiac, and other chronic autoimmune conditions is on the rise. While the medical community has primarily focused its efforts on treating the diseases’ symptoms, Susan Blum, M.D., MPH, Founder and Director of Blum Center for Health in Rye Brook, New York has focused her life’s work on treating root causes. And Dr. Blum should know. Years ago, she was diagnosed with one of these illnesses, which forever transformed her personal and professional life.  In THE IMMUNE SYSTEM RECOVERY PLAN (Scribner; April  2, 2013), Dr. Blum offers her proven four-step program which she has used to help thousands of patients reverse their symptoms and prevent future illness. 

A consequence of the excessive amount of inflammatory foods in the standard American diet, our frequent exposure to toxins, heavy metals, and elevated stress levels, autoimmune disease is becoming an epidemic in this country. Dr. Blum’s unique four-step program targets the causes of disease by showing how food can be used as medicine; demonstrating the connection between stress and chronic illness; healing the gut and digestive system; and detoxifying and optimizing liver function.   

Including 40 recipes and a workbook style questionnaire to help readers design their own personal treatment plans based on their symptoms and individual lifestyle choices, THE IMMUNE SYSTEM RECOVERY PLAN is a groundbreaking, revolutionary program that shows how anyone can cure and prevent autoimmune disease, strengthen their immune systems, and bolster their overall health.
