The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease, Heal Your Body (Paperback)
An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disease. If you're among them, you may know all too well how little modern medicine can do to alleviate your condition. But that's no reason to give up hope. In this groundbreaking book, The Paleo Approach, Sarah D. Ballantyne, Ph.D., draws upon current medical research and her own battle with an autoimmune disorder to show how you can become completely symptom-free—the natural way.
The Paleo Approach is the first book ever to show you how to adapt the Paleo diet and lifestyle to bring about a full recovery. Read it to learn why foods marketed as "healthy"—such as whole grains, soy, and low-fat dairy—can contribute to the development of autoimmune conditions. Discover what you can eat to calm your immune system, resolve inflammation, and help your body heal itself. Learn which simple lifestyle changes—along with changes in diet—will make the biggest difference for your health.
If you're concerned that "going Paleo" will break the bank or require too much time in the kitchen preparing special foods, there's no need to worry. In the The Paleo Approach, Dr. Ballantyne provides expert tips on how to make the switch easily and economically. She explains how to stay within your food budget while going Paleo, how to make the best use of your time in the kitchen, and where to shop for what you need. The book also includes meal plans that help the body maximize healing, and delicious recipes for recommended dishes.
Features such as these make The Paleo Approach the ultimate resource for anyone suffering from autoimmune disease. Why suffer a moment longer? Reclaim your health with The Paleo Approach!
About the Author
Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D., earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at the age of 26. She spent the next four years doing research on innate immunity and inflammation before becoming a stay-at-home mom. After her second daughter was born, she began to experiment with the Paleo lifestyle. It had an amazing effect on her health. Over time, she healed herself of a long laundry list of physical complaints including irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, and the autoimmune disorder, Lichen Planus, an inflammatory skin condition. Inspired by her success, Dr. Ballantyne created the popular health blog www.ThePaleoMom.com and became co-host of a top-rated podcast, The Paleo View. Her passion for providing straightforward explanations of the science behind her diet and lifestyle recommendations for managing autoimmune disease, plus her love of food and cooking, form the foundations of The Paleo Approach.
