Here are three books by women who have healed their autoimmune disease.  This article is not intentionally about women only, I just couldn’t find any books written by men.  If you know any please add them to the comments below.

You can heal your lifeYou Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay, Hay House Publishing

Louise Hay is credited as a founder member of the self-help movement.  Louise was able to put her philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer.

Hay considered the alternatives to surgery and drugs, and instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer.

This book is hard to handle if you’re not ready to hear that you might be responsible for your own disease.  It’s an interesting read based on anecdotes and word of mouth, but there is also a truth that is hard to argue with.  That if your immune system can kill your platelets then your immune system is capable of stopping killing your platelets.

This book is all about diet – Over time, Ballantyne healed herself of a long laundry list of physical complaints including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid reflux, migraines, anxiety, asthma, allergies, psoriasis and an autoimmune skin condition called lichen planus. In fact, Ballantyne was able to discontinue six prescription medications, some of which she has been taking for 12 years.

The Paleo approach is a very science heavy, but in saying that, it also makes it very fact heavy.  It’s one of the most substantiated paleo books I have ever read.

By Micky Trescott, Self Published

My journey to the Autoimmune Protocol started as a vegan, having been diagnosed with both Celiac and Hashimoto’s disease.  I made the transition to Paleo, slowly reversing vitamin and mineral deficiencies and greatly improving my health. When I finally found the Autoimmune Protocol, I discovered that those pesky food triggers had been the final piece of the puzzle to making me feel well again.

This book is a self-published beauty.  The food actually looks delicious, however simple it may seem.
