An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disease 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, Sarah D. Ballantyne, Ph.D., draws upon current medical research and her own battle with an autoimmune disorder to show you how you can become completely symptom-free—the natural way.

The Paleo Approach is the first book ever to explain 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, reduce inflammation, and help your body heal itself. Find out which simple lifestyle changes—along with changes in diet—will make the biggest difference for your health.

There's no need to worry that "going Paleo" will break the bank or require too much time in the kitchen preparing special foods. In The Paleo Approach, Dr. Ballantyne provides expert tips on how to make the switch easily and economically. Complete food lists with strategies for the day-to-day—how stay within your food budget, where to shop for what you need, how to make the most out of your time in the kitchen, and how to eat out—take all the guesswork out of going Paleo. Simple strategies for lifestyle adjustments, including small steps that can make a huge difference, guide you through the most important changes to support healing.

Do you have a complicated condition that requires medical intervention, medication, or supplements? Dr. Ballantyne also walks you through the most useful medical tests, treatments, and supplements (as well as the most counterproductive ones) to help you open a dialogue with your physician.

Features such as these make The Paleo Approach the ultimate resource for anyone suffering from an autoimmune disease. Why suffer a moment longer? Reclaim your health with The Paleo Approach!

So informative

I've been following Paleo Mom on Facebook and was so excited when I heard she was coming out with a book. And it didn't disappoint. I had already been leaning towards a Paleo diet with my family and this book convinced me even more that I'm making the right choice. Very helpful and informative

Explaining the science behind the diet

Sarah has written an amazing book explaining The Autoimmune Paleo way of eating, and the science behind it. She explains all about inflammation, the foods that contribute to it, and how to eat in a way to heal your body. I was overwhelmed when diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, but I had good friends who recommended AIP and Sarah's book. She explains everything in a way that made sense to me and is leading me back to a healthy life.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - everyone needs to know

I am passionate about this book. It is literally lifechanging. I had the honor of reviewing a copy of my new favorite book, The Paleo Approach, this past week and I am so excited to share it with you. This book is like the "bible" of Paleo eating. It is like a complete life manual that answers every question you could ever think of about Paleo or Primal eating. I am amazed at the author, Sarah Ballantyne, for her extreme dedication in writing this book. I have no idea how many hours she spent pouring over the research for this book, but I assure you, it has to be in the thousands at least. She thought of every single detail. I want to choose a few quotes for you, but it is so hard...I just want to quote the entire book because everything written is so important to the healing of your body. The book is set up in almost a textbook fashion, except that she writes in a way that makes the book enjoyable to read. It is literally filled with information, but it never leaves you feeling overwhelmed or bored. She makes it all sound so fascinating. She also has an amazing way of "speaking" to the reader. She writes so that the average person can clearly understand what she is saying, but not so simple that it feels like she is being condescending. I think that is very important and impressive because she is clearly a genius.  The first pages show a Table of Contents with everything divided neatly into chapters and sections to make it easier if you are looking for something specific in the book. The book is divided into two main parts - The Cause and The Cure. The Cause focuses on Autoimmune Diseases--what they are, dietary factors that contribute to them (for example: foods that do not digest well and genetics), lifestyle factors that contribute to them (such as lack of sleep and medication), and how to move forward to heal your body and add to your life. This part of the book is very interesting to me because most of it is all new information to me and I really enjoy learning. There is a three page list of all the known possible autoimmune diseases, many of which surprised me. I think it's great that she includes this because many of them are not diseases that I would think of as being autoimmune diseases...which means that without this information, many people may not try the Paleo Approach because they are not even aware that it could help them. This list fixes that problem! She goes so in-depth with her explanations that she makes you feel like an expert after you are done. My husband loves to learn, but he has a very short attention span and this book also kept him intrigued.  The Cure focuses on the lifestyle changes that you can use to help heal your autoimmune symptoms. Sarah writes,  "Healing is complex. You are not only trying to heal the tissues attacked by your autoimmune disease; you are also trying to restore the barrier function of your gut (that is, fix your leaky guy) and reestablish a normal gut microflora. Your body will need extra nutrition (and sleep, which is discussed in the next chapter) to get started on this process, so the more nutrient-dense your diet is, the better. By eating according to the Paleo Approach, you will flood your body with the nutrients it needs." When Sarah begins writing about the foods, she makes it clear that she wants you to succeed. She doesn't just write "DO NOT EAT THIS" "DO NOT EAT THAT", she goes in-depth about each food item and why that food is bad for your body. I think that is so important. It makes it harder to follow through with any big change in life if someone just gives you a list of things to avoid without telling you the reasons. When you are given the reasons, it helps to motivate you to make the right choices. Every single thing about this book shows Sarah's dedication. I just cannot say enough good things about her dedication to this book. You can clearly see that everything was so thoughtfully added. This was not some book that was just thrown together. I hope that if I ever write a book, it is half as wonderful as this one. This book isn't just for people with autoimmune diseases, this book is for everyone. Everyone should want to learn more about their bodies and understand how every choice they make affets their health.

What an amazing book!

As soon as I received this book, I immediately started skimming through it and felt a little overwhelmed. I must admit, I haven't been diagnosed with autoimmune disease although I've wondered if I do, especially given I have many of the symptoms. My father had suffered through Alzheimer's disease for 18 years before his death last year and I've often wondered if he had autoimmune and inflammation issues....and now I know that to be true, thanks to Sarah's book. There is conflicting opinions in the medical world if Alzheimer's is a genetic disease also, which worries me somewhat given I have a lot of the same health issues that my Dad did at the same age. I tried the Paleo lifestyle several years ago but didn't take the time to really understand it and then I heard some people say "oh, don't do the Paleo's bad for you". I was bummed because I just wanted to eat bacon! Lol Sarah's book is so comprehensive and so amazing that it seemed every page I turned to would answer question upon question that would arise in my head. She has clearly put her heart and soul into every page and for that, I'm incredibly thankful! I'm putting my list together and I'm heading to the store to start on my journey with The Paleo Approach!

This book is Transforming my Life!

I have wanted to improve my health and change my lifestyle habits for the last few years and kind of had an idea of what to do but was lacking motivation. I was experiencing a range of symptoms including joint/muscle pain, extreme fatigue, chronic infections, hair loss, digestive upset, skin rashes/hives, and weight gain. My doctor couldn't offer me any real support. I wasn't sure exactly what I should be eating, but I knew I needed to change my diet and get more exercise. Dr. Ballantyne's research and dedication to helping others with their healing have helped get me on the right track. Buying this book, I thought I was just going to get information on food, and The Paleo Approach contains so much more. While I consider myself to know a good bit about wellness, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book has a great deal of new information and tips on how to be healthy in the bigger picture, including tips on how to SLEEP better. I have now been on the Autoimmune Paleo diet for almost a month while giving up caffeine, and am seeing huge improvements in my digestion, overall health and energy levels. Plus, Sarah Ballantyne is great at explaining the science for those of us non-science people. I found that reading this book and fully understanding what I was doing to my body by continuing with certain eating and lifestyle habits, really gave me the motivation I needed to make the shift and change my life for the better. The science info can also be helpful when explaining to the people in your life what your up to including the whys and hows. Best thing is, it's actually working! This way of life is challenging to implement, and having a supportive wealth of knowledge and beacon of success like Dr. Ballantyne is priceless. Love this book. I just bought the Paleo Approach Cookbook, which I highly recommend as well. Also, I have listened to many episodes from Sarah and Stacey's podcast "The Paleo View" to keep the fires of transformation burning.
