The Immune System Recovery Plan: A Doctor’s 4-Step Program to Treat Autoimmune Disease

Are you constantly exhausted?

Do you frequently feel sick?

Are you hot when others are cold, or cold when everyone else is warm?

Do you have trouble thinking clearly, aka “brain fog”?

Do you often feel irritable?

Are you experiencing hair loss, dry skin, or unexplained weight fluctuation?

Do your joints ache or swell but you don’t know why?

Do you have an overall sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it’s actually normal to you?

IF you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an autoimmune disease, and this book is the “medicine” you need. Among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune disease affects nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet; exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics; and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions to suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more. In The Immune System Recovery Plan, Dr. Susan Blum, one of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine, shares the four-step program she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, heal their immune systems, and prevent future illness.


• Using food as medicine

• Understanding the stress connection

• Healing your gut and digestive system

• Optimizing liver function

Each of these sections includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple, easy-to-prepare dishes to jump-start the healing process.

The Immune System Recovery Plan is a revolutionary way for people to balance their immune systems, transform their health, and live fuller, happier lives.

  1. Amazing Book I read health books all the time and have never written a review but this book is so good that I decided to write one. Anyone with an auto-immune disease should read this. There is an extensive scientific literature review to support the recommended program. The information is up to date and extremely comprehensive — it covers everything you need to know. I have learned so much (and have already read every book that is recommended in the appendix) and am inspired to add some of the new information from the book into my treatment plan. My only negative is that although Dr. Blum mentions and recommends the Paleo Diet as beneficial to some people with auto-immune diseases — the recipes in this book are high carb and not paleo. Personally, the paleo diet makes a huge difference in my health. Also, along those same lines, she talks about type 1 diabetes but the recipes in the book are not appropriate for a diabetic — too high carb as well. The best book on Diabetes and controlling it with diet is — it is really the bible for diabetes. The recipes aside, the nutritional information is most up to date and can be incorporated into your own recipes. Thank you Dr. Blum for writing such an inspiring, empowering and life changing book.

  2. GREAT RESULTS – A MUST HAVE for recovery I read this book as I suffer from Sjogren’s, Chronic Fatigue, Fybromialgia and Raynaud’s. I have read most of the books related to auto immune conditions and this book by far is the most accurate, informative and helpful I have read to date and has extended more results for me than any other. Much of what Dr. Blum suggests in her book is what my current integrative rheumatoligist practices and the results for me have been remarkable the past year. However, most books, including this one, share stories of full recoveries without emphasizing that the healing process takes time as a weakened immune system is senstive and it often feels like a maze to find what works and doesn’t for each individual with an auto-immune condition. Recovery is definitely a journey and there are setbacks through the process. I now no longer have to take prescription medications, Evoxac pills to make saliva daily and no longer have a running fever, severe inflammation, fatigue or joint pain and my chronic stomach problems are improving as I heal my gut which reacts to many foods and supplements. Along with Dr. Blum’s detox diet, supplement and test recommendations, I implemented homeopathy and accupuncture as well as the NAET allergy elimination treatments. Basically I have taken the best information, research and techniches available to me and applied what works best for my healing process. All this is leading to my recovery and I only wish the same and the best for all auto-immune sufferers – especially since many physicians are not well versed in functional medicine yet. This book is a great starting point and resource. I wish this book had been around three years ago when my symptoms started to better guide me. Too much time was dangerously wasted in getting an accurate diagnosis for my condition. The author of this book is correct in her assessment that it is best to address the symptoms early before the immune system is further compromised and conditions worsen.
