A brilliant, cutting-edge exploration of the dramatic rise of allergic and autoimmune diseases and the controversial, potentially groundbreaking therapies that scientists are developing to correct these disorders Whether it is asthma, food or pollen allergies, type-1 diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, or Crohn’s disease, everyone knows someone who suffers from an allergic or autoimmune disorder. And if it appears that the prevalence of these maladies has increased recently, that’s because it has—to levels never before seen in human history. These days no fewer than one in five—and likely more—Americans suffers from one of these ailments. We seem newly, and bafflingly, vulnerable to immune system malfunction. Why? Science writer Moises Velasquez-Manoff explains the latest thinking about this problem and explores the remarkable new treatments in the works. In the past 150 years, improved sanitation, water treatment, and the advent of vaccines and antibiotics have saved countless lives, nearly eradicating diseases that had plagued humanity for millennia. But now, a growing body of evidence suggests that the very steps we took to combat infections also eliminated organisms that kept our bodies in balance. The idea that we have systematically cleaned ourselves to illness challenges deeply entrenched notions about the value of societal hygiene and the harmful nature of microbes. Yet scientists investigating the rampant immune dysfunction in the developed world have inevitably arrived at this conclusion. To address this global “epidemic of absence,” they must restore the human ecosystem. This groundbreaking book explores the promising but controversial “worm therapy”—deliberate infection with parasitic worms—in development to treat autoimmune disease. It explains why farmers’ children so rarely get hay fever, why allergy is less prevalent in former Eastern Bloc countries, and how one cancer-causing bacterium may be good for us. It probes the link between autism and a dysfunctional immune system. It investigates the newly apparent fetal origins of allergic disease—that a mother’s inflammatory response imprints on her unborn child, tipping the scales toward allergy. In the future, preventive treatment—something as simple as a probiotic—will necessarily begin before birth. An Epidemic of Absence asks what will happen in developing countries, which, as they become more affluent, have already seen an uptick in allergic disease: Will India end up more allergic than Europe? Velasquez-Manoff also details a controversial underground movement that has coalesced around the treatment of immune-mediated disorders with parasites. Against much of his better judgment, he joins these do-it-yourselfers and reports his surprising results. An Epidemic of Absence considers the critical immune stimuli we inadvertently lost as we modernized, and the modern ills we may be able to correct by restoring them. At stake is nothing less than our health, and that of our loved ones. Researchers, meanwhile, have the good fortune of living through a paradigm shift, one of those occasional moments in the progress of science when a radically new way of thinking emerges, shakes things up, and suggests new avenues of treatment. You’ll discover that you’re not you at all, but a bustling collection of organisms, an ecosystem whose preservation and integrity require the utmost attention and care.

A cutting-edge examination of the mysterious world of autoimmune disease—and the new discoveries made daily that may save women's lives Autoimmune diseases—including chronic fatigue syndrome, vasculitis, juvenile diabetes, alopecia, Graves' disease, Sjogren's syndrome, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis—are among the most devastating conditions afflicting women today and the most resistant to diagnosis and treatment. In all of them, the body's immune system begins to attack healthy and normally functioning cells. And one of the biggest puzzles is why 80 percent of autoimmune disease sufferers are women. In this groundbreaking book, world-class immunologist Dr. Robert Lahita brings years of intensive research, patient care, and diagnostics to shed light on the mysteries of these conditions, with a particular focus on how they affect—and how he treats—women. Through case studies, he reveals the early warning signs, symptoms, diagnostic processes, and the most innovative treatments for all the most common—and many of the less well known—autoimmune diseases. He offers a scientifically sound and sensitive work that is the best resource available to help understand these perplexing and debilitating diseases.

My husband and I raised our glasses and said yes to adventure, moving ourselves and our two very young children to the Mexican jungle. After a year there, I became deathly ill, so we returned to our family farm and cattle ranch outside of Nashville, Tennessee, where I embarked on my greatest quest. I went from being a clueless kitchen woman, having lived on only processed foods, to becoming a REAL FOOD master cook. I then began healing my body, shifting our cattle ranch to grass fed and creating an organic bio-dynamic produce company in the process. What started out as a Mee thing became a We thing, as I launched community kitchens throughout the city of Nashville and now Malibu, inspiring people to return to a healthy farm-table lifestyle. This book is the story of my journey, the food facts I came to understand, and lots of healthy, healing recipes to share. An Introduction Every day I seem to learn more and more about food, cooking, and healing. When I first embarked on this grand cooking adventure, I thought it was only to heal my own body . . . to get well enough to live pain free and to be able to eat whatever I wanted. I had no idea that I would not only learn to heal my intestines but also unveil the great secret to healing and preventing disease. This secret is that our intestines and their wellness are the key to balancing our immune systems. Therefore, everyone would do well to embark on a REAL FOOD DIET that strengthens the digestive tract, balances healthy bacteria versus unhealthy bacteria, and produces healthy, whole, and long shadoobies daily. As I began to share with the world what I’d learned, the e-mails began to pour in from all over the country via my website, www.meetracy.com. I found myself digging for answers for folks who were suffering from autoimmune diseases and cancer. I knew that if food could heal a hole in my intestines, then for certain it could help others get well from an array of different illnesses. What I found were tons of stories of food miracles. This hunt to understand our health and what makes us well expanded my own healing, and I found the “red thread” that connects all of us on the road to better health—REAL FOOD. I hope my journey inspires you to shift your relationship with life and know that you have a choice in what you eat and how you feel. Mee McCormick believes that when we are armed with information and education, we can choose who we become. And this starts with the food we choose to eat. She knows firsthand how true this is and has made it her business to share and educate others on the healing power of foods. My Kitchen Cure opens with a chronicle of her struggles and eventual victory over the hereditary autoimmune dysfunction that had evolved into a life-threatening health crisis without any effective treatments or cures from traditional medicine. This book is Mee’s story, but My Kitchen Cure is also chockfull of her tireless research and health-restoring strategies. It is a complete how to guide to living a Real Food Life, and using the healing properties of foods to regain control over your health and your life. Having traveled down the Real Food healing path, Mee shows you the way—step by step, meal by meal, and recipe by recipe. My Kitchen Cure is a book about overcoming chronic autoimmune disease, preventing cancer, and transcending a hereditary setup for a life of illness and a diminished existence. My Kitchen Cure is about foods for healing, cooking for cures, and eating your way to wellness. And, finally, My Kitchen Cure is a book about recovering strength, regaining balance, reclaiming empowerment, and restoring vitality.

Do you have crud in the blood? 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 3-week plans: In the first 3 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. The Autoimmune Fix provides a practical and much-needed guide to navigating these increasingly common conditions to help you feel better and develop a plan that works for you.

Using his insight as a longtime physician, Dr. Ron Henderson describes the productive life he lives despite having a rare autoimmune disease known as myasthenia gravis (MG). He also provides a forum for three other MG patients to share their inspirational stories. A disease unfamiliar to many, myasthenia gravis means "grave muscle weakness" and causes severe weakness and loss of strength in voluntary muscles in various parts of the body. Often debilitating, MG falls into the category of "autoimmune" diseases, which all involve problems related to the immune system. Explaining MG symptoms, treatments, research, and disease-management tips, this book becomes a useful guide for MG patients, their families, and their physicians. And the book goes further. Using MG as an example, Dr. Henderson and others provide tips to all who suffer from chronic health problems for which there are treatments but no cures. Forced by MG to retire eight years ago as an obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Henderson now enjoys improved health but realizes he can never expect to be well unless a cure is found for MG. In this book, he announces plans to expand research into MG and other autoimmune disease through his founding of the International Autoimmune Disease Research Foundation.

Myasthenia gravis is one the many autoimmune diseases, which, according to contemporary Western medicine, offers no known cure, except controlling or suppressing its symptoms. This book is based on the author's own experience of battling against his myasthenia gravis: how he stopped all his medications through a holistic approach to controlling and managing the disease. This book provides insight and well-researched information that he would like to share with those who are afflicted with myasthenia gravis or any other autoimmune disease. Albert Einstein once said: "There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle." Believe in the miracle of self-healing. Healing comes only from within, and not from any external source. Every individual should avail every opportunity to initiate the self-healing process, which is innate in the human body. Just believing in a miracle cure, however, is not enough; you must also empower yourself with knowledge and information to overcome myasthenia gravis through a holistic approach to the wellness of the body, the mind, and the spirit. This book covers every aspect of holistic health to cope with autoimmunity: body detox, diet, lifestyle changes, exercises for muscle weakness, and mental relaxation techniques for vision problems. "The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. That is why the patient's hopes are the physician's secret weapon. They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription." (Norman Cousins) Find your own ingredients in your prescription for a cure of your myasthenia gravis.

A comprehensive, natural approach to treating acute and chronic Lyme disease, from a leading naturopathic physician who has managed his symptoms for more than fifteen years.

Now, in The Lyme Solution, Dr. Darin Ingels shares his revolutionary approach to treating and healing acute and chronic Lyme. Drawing on his experience as a naturopathic physician who has treated thousands of cases, and as a patient, Ingels reveals that Lyme is an autoimmune disease as much as it is an infection.

The Lyme Solution offers a simple, five-step plan, including: * the most effective early treatment and prevention measures to avoid contracting the disease or stop it in its tracks; * an Immune Boosting Diet and list of herbal supplements that will increase immunity and reduce inflammation; * guidelines for when and how to use antibiotics as an effective part of your treatment plan; * tools to identify and eliminate conditions that mimic Lyme disease or exacerbate your symptoms. Whether you are facing acute or chronic Lyme, or undiagnosed autoimmune symptoms, the natural, whole-body approach of The Lyme Solution will help you permanently recover your health, and reclaim your life.
