According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, autoimmune disease affects up to 50 million Americans-that's 1 in 12-and disease rates have tripled in the last 30 years. Modern medicine doesn't seem able to help much, but diet can make a huge difference. The autoimmune protocol (AIP) program makes specific food choices to help reduce inflammation in the body and assist in managing symptoms.
In beautiful full color, Idiot's Guides: Autoimmune Cookbook is for those who seek tasty dishes that adhere to the auto-immune protocol. Featuring 120 delicious recipes, the dishes avoid all the problem ingredients that can increase inflammation-grains, dairy, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds, nightshades, and refined or processed oils and sugars- without sacrificing an ounce of flavor.
