Living Well with Autoimmune Disease, What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You....That You Need To Know
"At last, a book that helps people make sense of multiple mystifying symptoms and offers a road map to proper diagnosis and the most effective treatments...a brilliant empowerment manual."-Richard Shames, M.D., and Karilee Shames, Ph.D., RN, HNC authors of Thyroid Power.
Are You Suffering From:
- Weight Gain or Loss?
- Joint Pains?
- Memory Loss?
- Numbness in Your Hands or Feet?
You could be suffering from autoimmune disease.
Are you tired? Achy? Depressed? Overweight?
You could be suffering from an autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune disease is the third major category of illness in the United States, yet very little is known about the many serious and chronic immune conditions. If you're one of the 50 million Americans suffering from one kind of autoimmune disease-whether it's lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or Crohn's disease-there's a good chance you'll develop another.
This book can help.
Written by Mary J. Shomon, a well-known patient advocate who was diagnosed with autoimmune disease in 1995, this guide to alternative and natural remedies shows you how to treat the underlying causes of immune system imbalance, not just the symptoms. It contains first-person accounts from doctors, patients, and holistic practitioners, as well as checklists, quizzes, and a proposed recovery plan. In addition, it offers detailed information about:
The most common autoimmune conditions
- The factors that can lead to autoimmune disease
- Interpreting your symptoms
- Procedures and treatments
- Finding the right doctor
Until we find a cure, living with autoimmune disease can be frightening and frustrating. But it doesn't have to be. This valuable guide helps you understand what may be causing the disorder and helps you take the first healthy, natural steps toward correcting it.
