Recently diagnosed with another autoimmune disease so I thought heck why not try this book But one of my most recent non fiction reads was Do You Believe in Magic The Sense and Nonsense of Alternative Medicine I ve been re listening to old episodes of Sawbones and mainlining the alternative medicine episodes of Oh No Ross Carrie so my brain is definitely attuned to seudoscience lingo This book has it in spades In addition to the Davids Sling podcasts websites books above instead of reading this book I recommend reading about functional medicine at Science Based Medicine and inarticular the Reality Hunger: A Manifesto. David Shields piece Functional Medicine The Ultimate Misnomer in the World of Integrative Medicine There was a majorly alarmist tone in most of this book what I read of it I stopped reading halfway through as long as these kinds of medicalractitioners use fear tactics anecdotal scientific evidence and nonsensical analogies on vulnerable eople those suffering

territory which frankly just isn t my bag no offense intended if that s yours However as someone who haswhich frankly just isn t my bag no offense intended if that s yours However as someone who has immense benefit from treatments that don t always have enough of an evidence base to completely explain for example it s only relatively recently and acupuncture gained legit status in mainstream medicine and someone who s willing to try out various nutritional and lifestyle changes I found this book clear and helpful and its stepsprotocol easy follow The steps did help me identify some otential migraine and so although I given up any food entirely I m much aware of the things I should eat only smallless freuent ortions of I m not sure if I could embrace a whole hog abandonment of wheat and dairy without seeing a bit research case studies are cool but not as Hidden Boundaries persuasive when you don t know theeople ersonally but I would strongly encourage eople who have struggled with odd immune and autoimmune conditions as well as Gods Callgirl pain conditions to give this book a chance I wanted so much to love this book I m theerfect target audience I have many of the medical conditions believe in the diet changes am into alternative and holistic medicine and already understand the link to toxins the author talks about at length I was hoping for a book that would explain the science behind autoimmune disease and connect it to the rest That s not this bookI don t know if the author has farmed out sections to others and didn t check them well enough or if she really is that ignorant about things But there were so many huge glaring errors big stuff too not just small things that it meant I couldn t trust the rest of the book If I find mistakes in the stuff I already know how can I tell if the stuff I don t know is correctHere are 3 errors I remember off the top of my head1 She claims that our diets are Forever I'm Yours problematic because we re eating agriculturalroducts vs hunting and gathering Okay there are some valid arguments for that and I can go with it The error was when she said we humans have only changed over to farming 10 generations ago Ummm that s about 250 years So nope That s the small error maybe she meant millennia but it s still the sort of thing an author and her editor should catch2 Celiac Disease is an allergy to gluten She said this twice that I saw Not a simple typo And not the sort of over simplification that is acceptable in a book about autoimmune disease3 In talking about how gluten can be roblematic for many she implies all which I don t agree with she blames it all on GMOs Now I m no fan of GMOs and I m open to any science that shows they create roblems in human health Does she rovide that Nope She says the reason they cause roblems with wheat is that GMO wheat has gluten than regular wheat and that eating gluten is leading to medical issuesOh my God where do I start First of all while GMO wheat exists it s not yet on the market as of last year anyway source Wikipedia Blum uses William David author of Wheat Belly as a source in this chapter and even he has a blog Renoir post out saying in 2012 While current research efforts continue to work on genetically modified wheat eg herbicide resistance and reduction of celiac diseaserovoking seuences such GM wheat is not currently on the marketSecond the Nebular Sammelband 5 - Galaxis in Panik purpose of GMO wheat is not to increase the gluten content nor does it as a side effect Third I ve seen zero evidence anywhere eating a somewhat higher amount of gluten than the usual American is going to make any difference whatsoeverI skimmed the rest of the book hoping there might be useful information there Not really The vast majority of it is uizzes to determine ifarticular types of treatments are useful to you and they weren t very insightful uizzes either and recipes for healthy foods by her definition though I didn t have a roblem with her version of healthy dietsAll in all this book was a huge disappointment I was especially interested in this as I have an autoimmune disease MS and am finding that diet really has an impact on my health I understand now a lot about how the immune system works and in the case of autoimmune disease doesn t Although I felt the information regarding MS was sorely lacking I recommend this to anyone with an autoimmune disease and there are a lot of us.
