In America, more than ninety percent people suffer from inflammation and/or autoimmune disorder. Conventional medicine offers no cure for any of these disorders. However, people are known to have partly or fully cured their inflammation-related disorders by eating the right food. In The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook, Amy Myers claims that autoimmune disorders can be prevented and reversed. Amy Myers is a medical doctor who specializes in autoimmune disorders. She is the founder of the functional medicine center Austin UltraHealth, where she serves as its medical director. She provides more than 150 recipes to prevent and reverse many of the inflammation-related disorders. She also busts several myths about autoimmune disorders. She claims that your symptoms will disappear without medications if you follow the The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook plan. It is wrong to say that medications for autoimmune disorders have no side effects. Improving digestion and gut health have a positive effect on the progression of an autoimmune disorder. Going gluten-free will also have a positive effect on autoimmune disorder. Having an autoimmune disorder does not doom you to a poor quality of life as it may be treated better food. It is not correct that only your genes matter and environment factors do not matter. She writes, “If you have an autoimmune disease, then somewhere along the way your immune system went rogue and began attacking your own tissues. For example, if you have Hashimoto’s disease, your immune system has attacked your thyroid gland. A diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis means your immune system has gone after your joints… The list goes on and on… In order to treat, prevent, and reverse autoimmune disease, you need to get your immune system back to balance” The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook is a fascinating and a necessary cookbook for millions of people who suffer from autoimmune disorders. This cookbook is equally important for you even if you do not suffer from an autoimmune disorder because these recipes will prevent the development of autoimmune disorders. Amy Myers has done a commendable job by writing this book. The recipes are not only healthful but also scrumptious and mouth-watering.

Megha Barot and Matt Gaedke have placed a lot of stress on prepping your foods. Matt says, “If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.” This is especially true for those who are new to keto lifestyle. For new keto fans, it can be hard to know what to eat and in what proportions. The best way to beat this is bulk meal prepping.
