The root cause of most weight gain, brain and mood problems, and fatigue, autoimmunity can take years—or even decades—for symptoms and a clear diagnosis to arise. Through years of research, Dr. Tom O’Bryan has discovered that autoimmunity is actually a spectrum, and many people experiencing general malaise are already on it. And while autoimmune diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and lupus, have become the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer, many people affected are left in the dark. The good news is that many autoimmune conditions can be reversed through a targeted protocol designed to heal the autoimmune system, 70 percent of which is located in the gut. The Autoimmune Fix includes two comprehensive 3-week plans: In the first 3 weeks, you’ll follow a Paleo-inspired diet during which you cut out gluten, sweets, and dairy—the three primary culprits behind autoimmunity. Once the dietary changes have been addressed, The Autoimmune Fix focuses on the other causes of autoimmunity such as genetics, other dietary issues, and microbiome. The Autoimmune Fix provides a practical and much-needed guide to navigating these increasingly common conditions to help you feel better and develop a plan that works for you.

    I don't even know why I keep reading these books on autoimmune disease. It always boils down to diet, stress, and lifestyle. I did enjoy the book and there were a few added elements I didn't know about. It's a good reference for flipping back to the program and diet. I do love that it's super easy to understand and this alone would be a great starter book for someone suffering from autoimmune disease. It sums up what you need to know and how to execute new habits. As a lupus sufferer, what these I don't even know why I keep reading these books on autoimmune disease.

    This book has a lot of information, much of it very good, but at times the level of detail is overwhelming and a little anxiety-inducing.

I did not like the narrative voice to the point that I actually couldn’t take it anymore, so this review is a reflection of that and for the audio version only.

I came across Dr Tom O'Bryan on the internet before his book came out, while I was searching to heal myself. I knew I could do it without medication, I just didn't know how or where to start . Being able to breath, not having fluid retention, no being bloated all the time and getting rid of the above mentioned problems has been wonderful. I've felt like I was suffocating but now the restrictions have gone and I am now free. I have email my friends who have problems the link to this book and I pray they will see how this book can change their lives for the better. People, we don't know the harm we are doing to ourselves and it's time we took control of our own bodies and stopped the food industry from slowly killing us because of profits. I wish you all the best of health and that you feel as good as I do.

Look, I can't eat rice because of inflammation issues (it makes my feet swell and hurt to the point I have trouble walking) and my mom has been tested as allergic to it, so yes, these two celiacs avoid rice. BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HAVING CELIAC DISEASE. BECAUSE RICE DOES NOT CONTAIN GLUTEN. This guy is talking about his experience with treating celiac and NCGS and yet he says rice has gluten?!? The mind boggles. Seriously, I was flipping through the book to see if this would be useful since my "place on the autoimmune spectrum" is "HAS AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE" and had come to the conclusion that no, it wasn't going to be that helpful to me (I pretty much follow AIP) and then I came across the "rice has gluten" beauty and just about threw the book at the wall. Don't read this book. Seriously. Unless you want to be diagnosed as celiac because of your large forehead and have to avoid rice forever. Ugh.

    It's amazing how the information in this book has changed my life. This book, along with Wheat Belly by Dr. WIlliam Davis, gave me information that has, in one month, shown me how allergic to grains I am. Following a gluten-free lifestyle has cured a skin problem that baffled my physicians.

    As someone fairly new to the shitty club of autoimmune patients, this book was overwhelming and while it has some ideas for very specific and drastic dietary changes I may give a go at some point this next year, it also has a lot of barely (or sometimes nonexistent-ly) veiled insults at doctors and rheumatologists who do not necessarily believe this guy's way is the best way to go about treatment.

After looking up some of his studies in the endnotes, I'm also left with an eyebrow stuck up halfway, as his pronouncements and explanations of some of his recommendations are based on pretty small studies, and as someone with zero symptoms of celiac disease (my problems are with arthritis and my genetic testing has been thorough), I can't help but think he's overgeneralizing by putting all autoimmune diseases in one box. While I imagine if everyone ate exactly what he prescribes, that we'd all see health benefits, I also wonder if perhaps overall weight loss mau be the main reason for seeing those benefits versus such a strict elimination protocol, at least for those of us with zero indications of celiac in particular, which seems ro be his specialty. I am on the fence on this one, though it did have some tips about supplements and diet changes that I will give a shot later if my (to the author, apparently toxic and poisonous) current treatment protocol stops working. Two stars.

    Meh This book is full of great info but the only fix offered is to go get a specific blood test and find a new doctor who is this doctor...and if you don’t want to use this doctor, bring this book to your doctor so they can understand what the fix this book claims to have is. Totally simple, right? Yeah...

    4.5 stars // this book really helped confirm some things for me and clarify others. Super informative and while I already follow a diet well suited for those with autoimmune issues, I learned how to fine tune it according to my symptoms. This book (along with Medical Medium) has helped to greatly improve my well-being! Highly recommend this book!

    All of us are on the auto immune spectrum. This book shows us by eating the SAD DIET STANDARD AMERICAN DIET. sooner or later an auto immune disease will catch up to you, unfortunately. THIS book has been a REAL EYE OPENER 👀 and if you are a person who cares about your health or are a health coach or are intrested in good health this book NEEDS to be on your bookshelf. 5 STARS

    Wow.. That's all I can say. This book was just awesome . There is so much we don't know about about autoimmune disorders and it so happens that this book gives the reason to it all. I can't believe there was whole other perspective on the way we get sick because of what we eat. This is a book anyone can read. It's not boring but rather informative and upto the point. I can't believe I hadn't got my hands on this book before. Thanks Dr. Tom O Bryan

    I am in the middle on this book. On the one hand, I found it to be very helpful in terms of determining how things like gluten and dairy impact people with auto immune issues. Understanding some of the science behind it was really helpful for me, and being able to determine my own root cause.

On the one hand, I found it to be very helpful in terms of determining how things like gluten and dairy impact people with auto immune issues. Understanding some of the science behind it was really helpful for me, and being able to determine my own root cause. However, my main criticism is that, like many other similar practitioners (whose practices do not take insurance and are wildly unaffordable for the majority of middle-income people), they are "building their brand," their client base, their business, their name, etc. So they use tactics like this author did to scare the living sh*t out of patients into following their "protocol" and only their protocol. Towards the middle/end of this book, I found myself wondering if, despite having eliminated the majority of cow dairy, were I to consume a bit of cheese at a restaurant where I had limited options, I would instantly develop cancer and dozen other diseases and die within a year. [insert thinking emoji here] So in a nutshell, the first half of the book was helpful to understand the foundation, the basics, and figure out my root cause. However, you'll not catch me following any one person's "protocol" when I can take the knowledge from books like this and make it work for me and my lifestyle. Truth be told, if living to be 90-100 means I don't get to eat any foods EVER that taste good, I'm not too upset to die at 70-80. I'm of the opinion that if I'm so stressed and restrictive about every tiny gram that goes in my body, I'll probably die of stress and unhappiness by the time I'm 50 anyhow. I'd like to enjoy what life I do have, do the best I can to eliminate what makes my body feel bad, and not live in fear all the time.

    I love reading books about my health! While I already follow a Paleo diet, this book taught me a lot about how differing autoimmune diseases start, cascade, & continue to cause problems unless the root causes are addressed. It was another piece to my personal health puzzle that I needed information about, & it's been super helpful.

There were certain parts at the beginning of the book that did scare me, ("Where's he getting these statistics?!", & "How can I ever do that?!") but then again, his helpful options are always that - just options. He teaches repeatedly that our bodies are personal & that we need to pay attention to the cues & messages our own body is telling us. And I think that was the best part about this book - no one can tell me what to do or how to take care of my body, especially when those people don't care how something like gluten takes me down for months after ingesting it. I think his biggest message is that we have the power within ourselves to choose to heal by finding the resources & gaining the knowledge we can, & then acting on it. I'm glad I added this book to my personal reference library.

I also like the way Tom O'Bryan breaks everything to down to the three main culprits, which are: genetic susceptibility, environmental exposure; and increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut). Despite the numerous symptoms which fall under the spectrum of autoimmunity, the underlying process, which is the development of leaky gut, creates elevated levels of antibodies in the bloodstream, leading to a cascade of inflammatory processes in the body, that attack your own tissue. An analogy he references several times throughout the book is that our bodies experience symptoms wherever the weak link in our health chain is, which is why symptoms vary across such a wide spectrum.

    Incredibly helpful and easy to read In trying to heal my thyroid issue I stumbled upon this book. It puts all of the pieces together regarding auto immune function, genetics, food choices, and environmental exposures. He puts the science into an easy to read and comprehend format. I highly recommend it.

    Key takeaways: - humans cannot break down Gluten in the digestive tract - Gluten consumption leads to Leaky Gut in a lot of people - Leaky Gut in simple terms means that the small intestine allows for larger particles to pass through the barrier and enter the bloodstream - Those large particles are not what the body expects so they cause of Immune reaction. - The immune system creates Antibodies to those large particles, and attacks whatever looks like those particles. Unfortunately for many people, Key takeaways: - humans cannot break down Gluten in the digestive tract - Gluten consumption leads to Leaky Gut in a lot of people - Leaky Gut in simple terms means that the small intestine allows for larger particles to pass through the barrier and enter the bloodstream - Those large particles are not what the body expects so they cause of Immune reaction. - The immune system creates Antibodies to those large particles, and attacks whatever looks like those particles. Unfortunately for many people, this also means that the Immune system is attacking some organ in the body, that it mistakes for those "external particles". This is what Autoimmunity is, and the results are very bad for the individual that has it. How can you test if you have autoimmune reaction? Quick answer is to go to the website of the author, where you can choose from many tests. Interesting is that the Author himself proposes a diet even before the tests. Here's an excerpt: A doctor can perform a variety of different blood tests to confirm a gluten sensitivity, and a positive diagnosis of celiac disease requires an endoscopy. However, you can test yourself for a gluten sensitivity by following my elimination diet. It’s designed to determine if an unsuspecting food is actually causing problems for you. In the next 3 weeks, you will eliminate all gluten foods and assess how you feel. The 3 week plan is this: - avoid gluten in wheat, barley and rye - avoid caseine (i.e. milk products, no matter the animal) - avoid sugar Once you go through the plan, you have to continue avoiding gluten till the end of your life. After 6 months you can do a blood check for food sensitivities, that will eventually show what foods you are really sensitive to, since if you have Leaky gut, the test will show that you are allergic to all the foods that you are currently eating.

    nonfiction; autoimmune conditions and advice written by a doctor this does a somewhat thorough job explaining (with some scientific references cited, though no one is going to take the trouble to check them out anyway) the common issues of gluten sensitivity and gut permeability.

It convinced me that, although I am in better shape that I used to be since eliminating most of the gluten, I really need to work harder to stop ingesting those trace amounts (in my oat meal and restaurant foods with soy sauce), as well as the small amounts of dairy/casein I still eat (still working on the sugar, but I am a lot more conscious of it than I used to be). I also probably need to redo the whole elimination food process to re-test what I'm sensitive to because I feel like I had an upswing when I did it the first time, but have been on a gradual decline since I reintroduced most of the things back into my diet. notes: *keep working on eating more vegetables/less processed foods and lower stress to decrease gut permeability and rebalance gut microbiome. *keep taking vitamin D3, L. Glutamine, and omega 3 fish oils (at least 2g omega 3s/day). * try adding 1+ cups of green tea daily for polyphenol EGCG to heal gut, reduce inflammation and lower heart disease * aim for 1 forkful of fermented foods per day (can also try lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, bacillus subtilis, sacharomyces boulardii) * consider adding zinc carnosine (to heal gut, esp. after damage from taking NSAIDs) and colostrum (by antibiotic & hormone-free, grass-fed cows) for antibodies and to repair microvilli--one scoop per day for 2 months. * recommended if you have low stomach acid: 350 HCl (or apple cider vinegar) with each protein meal--increase to 2-3 pills for bigger meals * don't take tums/antacids at all if you can help it; instead try to avoid your problem foods * continue brushing/flossing to prevent gingivitis complications, and consider swishing coconut oil for 30 secs daily (spit out afterwards but not into drain) * suggested foods to remove/test for sensitivities: soy, corn, grains, oats, rice, quinoa; nightshades; FODMAPs Ignore the chapter where he talks about forehead size--although it is possibly true, we haven't seen any studies that show a high forehead indicates gluten sensitivity; we only know (according to the study he cited) that lots of people who are gluten-sensitive have high foreheads. It's such an obvious fallacy in logic that I'm embarrassed for him to have put that in there. Also probably ignore his whole website (referred to throughout the book)--it's full of slick commercial graphics and lots of exclamatory selling points ( ! ). This is a quick read and I intended to go over it again but now I don't feel like it. There is a lot in there about various antibody blood tests you can ask your doctor about, supplements he recommends (read with a grain of salt, since he does seem to sell quite a lot), health conditions that might be autoimmune related (heart disease is a big one) as well as a plan to cut out gluten/milk/excess sugar from your diet (always easier said than done, so helpful tips and recipes are appreciated).

Suffice it to say that I don't feel like I need to wait for confirmation before doing an elimination program, so The Autoimmune Fix is timely.

    I hate it when a book makes sense. I'm blessed (cursed) with the instant reaction of my body when I eat the wrong foods. But none of the right foods tastes as good as the right foods.

    This is quite literally a life-changing book. It is actually more than a book; it is a philosophy that will bring a sea change to your overall well-being. Though I am not 100% gluten-free by any means, I am implementing some of the concepts in this book and have noticed marked improvements in my physical and mental health. Dr. O'Bryan's writing is clear and methodical, as is his Transition Protocol. A great book!

    I highly recommend this book. I never marked it as finished reading because I keep going back to it. It’s been in my kitchen and by my couch and follows me all around. I suffer from several chronic illnesses and to say this opened my eyes in so many ways and helped me in so many ways I can’t even. I couldn’t take prescription medications. This has offered me some help and relief I never thought I’d find.

    Super useful advice with the science laid out. I found this book a bit fluffy with too many antidotal examples, however, the basis for so much information and disease is unearthed. Keep reading and what emerges is a plan to get to the root of poor health for many. Autoimmune disease is rampant, there are more than 150 diseases in this category with catastrophic consequences to population in the next 15-20 years. Could food be at the root? I believe yes, and I highly recommend this book.

    Will give lots of people hope. If you are American you will find this book user-friendly. Having said that, I must express my admiration for the high level of medical science Tom O’Bryon has applied to the advice in this book. It is accessible to anyone from any background. I hope this diet will help reduce the level of pain I experience with my autoimmune disease. At the very least it has given me a chance to try something other than ineffective, potentially addictive painkillers.

    Very eye opening to things you can consider in developing your lifestyle and eating habits. Recommendation for young people growing. Being aware of inflammation and autoimmune disease is of course helpful and although the tests the author is suggesting if you suspect an autoimmune disease are hard to get in Germany and in general doctors are hard to convince I still find it greatly informative in gaining understanding of your own body and mind and conditions you live in.
