Finally, a book that helps you understand your fatigue, joint pain, bloating, among other symptoms, and shows you how to cure them by getting to their root cause!

Finally, a book that helps you identify and cure the causes and symptoms of your illness!


There’s a growing epidemic in our country – an epidemic that is 23.5 million people strong. It doesn’t grab newspaper headlines or make the evening news, but it is debilitating and potentially deadly. It is the epidemic of autoimmune disease, which has become the second most prevalent form of chronic illness in this country. Although there are over 100 different autoimmune conditions, they are all caused by an underlying problem in the immune system.

Unfortunately, many people suffer with these conditions and their symptoms for many months and years (sometimes indefinitely!) because conventional doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong or can’t get to the root of the problem. The Immune System Recovery Plan is a call to alarm! By following the principles of functional medicine, this book helps you reverse and cure autoimmune diseases and their symptoms if caught early, before they progress and cause severe pain, disability and even death.


The initial symptoms of an autoimmune condition tend to be vague and are those that can be attributed to many things. These include:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • A nagging feeling that something just isn’t right

Simple blood tests can diagnose autoimmune conditions at this early stage and then, by following this book’s four steps, your immune system can be brought back into balance before irreversible damage is done to your brain, joints, thyroid, blood vessels or other vital organs.

If you have been suffering from an autoimmune condition for some time and already experienced some tissue damage, The Immune System Recovery Plan will help you feel better, reverse the effects of the disease and prevent the damage from getting worse.


As a doctor, I use the book’s four steps, which focus on functional medicine and lifestyle principles, with my patients to successfully treat all autoimmune conditions including:

  • Celiac Disease
  • Graves’ Disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Psoriasis
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Scleroderma

But I have also used them to cure myself from the serious autoimmune disease I was diagnosed with over a decade ago. It changed both my personal and professional life forever. Read my story. Now, I am offering these steps to you in my book as a solution. Step by step, you can go through each of these known causes of immune dysfunction and fix it:

  • Food (especially Gluten)
  • Stress
  • Gut
  • Toxins


The extra support that you will find on The Immune System Recovery Plan website will help bring the book to life and make the program even easier to follow. We have also added video, extra handouts, and answers to your questions via email. Now, it’s time to get started on your path to feeling better!
