and reviewed in the past few months the others being Brain Food by Lisa Mosconi and How not to die by Michael Greger It can be difficult to reconcile the advice offered as there are contradictions And yet some conclusions are clear we severely underestimate the role the food we eat plays in our health and the benefits of consulting a good dietitian My interest in reading this book was because of some prevalent autoimmune conditions in people close to me As I read on, I found I have an autoimmune condition myself This book makes an interesting start it delves on the various types of autoimmune diseases ranging from allergies, Hashimoto s thyroiditis, and others The first section of the book details how the immune system mistakenly attacks inflammatory agents it encounters The key principles of addressing this includes healing the gut, reducing intake of inflammatory foods, limiting exposure to toxins and managing stress This is referred to as The Myers Way a phrase which repeats multiple times on each page The author talks about how conventional medicine does not help much progressively requiringmedication, compounded by the fact that people with one autoimmune condition are at high risk of developing others I cannot agreethat better solutions are needed to treat autoimmune disorders.Amy details the foods we should strictly avoid gluten, grains, dairy and legumes She explains how she ate largely vegetarian food herself but changed her diet to come out of her autoimmune condition She states that vegetarians vegans have no way to improve their autoimmune condition While this view came across as disappointing to me I also know this to be incorrect as I personally know a few people who have improved their autoimmune condition with a strictly vegetarian diet Also, a lot of her diet recommendation contradicts studies on people living long and healthy lives So, assuming The Myers Way does work for limiting autoimmune conditions in the short term, what about the longer term Unlike the other two books I have referred at the start of this review, this book refers to almost no research There is detailed discussion on inflammatory foods, especially gluten, grains, dairy eggs and the harm they cause us even people without a current autoimmune condition can progress towards one The book includes a detailed 30 day diet plan and recipes of many of the dishes mentioned The author claims that people taking up this diet will feel better in a week, and are most likely to significantly limit their symptoms in a month.If people are able to take up this diet, I suppose there cannot be any harm in trying this for a short period after all the author says the difference should be noticeable in a month I would be very wary of adopting something like this for the long term.I considered my review and rating carefully to see to what extent I am allowing my personal values diet habits to influence it This book suffers from an egotistical tone, repeating material, non evidence based conclusions and almost no references to credible research So, not guilty What she calls The Myers Way, I call The No Way.No grainsNo glutenNo beansNo nutsNo peppersNo tomatoesNo dairyNo caffeineNo alcoholNo thank you UmmmNO At least not in regards to the unsustainable, and questionably safe, diet plan the MYERS PLAN insists upon when the proposed, non scientifically proven remedy is

PLAN, it is ZEALOUSLY emphasized by NAME throughout the text I felt like I was reading a very long infomercial And don t even get me started about the apocalyptic, germ a phobic fear factor chapters, where just about everything and I do mean everything from food to water to your environment is a potential toxin that needs to be eradicated and or avoided at all costs How is that helpful Many people afflicted with autoimmune diseases, me included, experience hardcore, painful symptoms and flares directly and indirectly via stress good or bad RSD CRPS provides enough stress evoking issues for ME to deal with, without creating fear over every little thing I may or may not be able to control In all fairness, the book isn t without some merit Dr Myers or perhaps her ghostwriter is a very engaging, pleasantly expressive writer who uses clear, easily understandable language to explain technical and medical topics relating to autoimmune diseases and the many factors at play the biggest being the digestive system and inflamation I also appreciated her insights into inflammatory foods factors environs vs non inflammatory entities specifically, why and how certain foods either decrease or increase inflammation inflammation being a big trigger of pain, malaise, irritability, and physical dysfunctions Overall though, this book and the MYERS PLAN still gets a no vote from me All things in moderation This book, is not TWO UmmmNO Not For Me STARS I could only read this book until I got to the section on dentistry Her recommendations are not based on any actual science, but rather the musings of a couple of quack dentists including one who has had his license revoked and was legally punished I am not even referring to their ideas on mercury fillings or fluoride, but rather the ideas on cavitations and root canals The expert she cites even states that diagnosis of cavitations requires a good imagination Based on this, I am highly s I could only read this book until I got to

punished I am not even referring to their ideas on mercury fillings or fluoride, but rather the ideas on cavitations and root canals The expert she cites even states that diagnosis of cavitations requires a good imagination Based on this, I am highly skeptical of the other scientific resources cited by Dr Myers To follow everything in the Myers Plan will be incredibly difficult as her eating plan is super strict however living with three autoimmune diseases that are all caused by inflammation is also incredibly difficult so I m going to give it a shot Her science seems sound and the patient stories she includes won me over If in thirty days, I m substantially better which is her promise than it will be totally worth it. I agree with the basic premise, that diet, exercise, mindfulness and avoiding stressors are integral to feeling well while living with an autoimmune condition, however, the information was presented so obnoxiously commercialized with the barest veneer of scientific credibility that I could never recommend this steaming turd of a book to anyone. I am 100% on board with most of what Dr Myers has to say I truly believe diet has a huge role in autoimmune disease I think the science is starting to show that and I can t wait until there arestudies That being said, it seemed like every time I picked up this book I had an anxiety attack The entire book seemed very alarmist This is the first autoimmune solution book I read and it almost turned me off of the whole idea I just pictured Dr Myers screaming at me for wanted to eat qu I am 100% on board with most of what Dr Myers has to say I truly believe diet has a huge role in autoimmune disease

very alarmist This is the first autoimmune solution book I read and it almost turned me off of the whole idea I just pictured Dr Myers screaming at me for wanted to eat quinoa each time I tried to read the book As someone who has had great success on a vegan diet, I didn t really appreciate her attitude toward my current diet I also couldn t get passed how often she used her own name After finishing the book, I was a little sick of hearing the term The Myers Way I think Dr Myers is doing great work and her book is worth a read however, it was the less extreme books I read after this one that finally brought me into the functional medicine doctor s office Don t let this book turn you away from the functional medicine approach There are successful and much less strict plans out there Like another reviewer said, every time I picked up this book I had an anxiety attack It was a scary, stressing read Do you bathe in unfiltered water Do you sleep on a non organic mattress Do you eat eggplant, tomatoes, or lentils Do you go to a conventional dentist According to Dr Meyers, there s literally nothing that isn t out to get you This may actually be true, but she left me feeling hopeless instead of inspired to change.The first portion of the book was filled with big science wo Like another reviewer said, every time I picked up this book I had an anxiety attack It was a scary, stressing read Do you bathe in unfiltered water Do you sleep on a non organic mattress Do you eat eggplant, tomatoes, or lentils Do you go to a conventional dentist According to Dr Meyers, there s literally nothing that isn t out to get you This may actually be true, but she left me feeling hopeless instead of inspired to change.The first portion of the book was filled with big science words and was really interesting to read, although I can sum it up for you with we re all on the autoimmune spectrum and we re all pretty much screwed But wait there s one path to salvation The Meyer s Way Dr Meyers is to health what Gwyneth Paltrow is to lifestyle someone championing a way of life that the rest of us don t have the funds or willpower to follow Who can afford to tear out their toxic conventional carpets and repaint the walls Replace all their cookware And don t even get me started about cross contamination I did learn A TON from this book and these ideas will undoubtedly influence me in the future maybe the next apartment we live in will have a wood floor instead of carpet, or I ll get a glass water bottle instead of plastic But Dr Meyers is not into slow change, she s into do all the things right now For those people who do follow her every word, they will probably live forever and go on to develop superpowers like flight and x ray vision But it seems like the rest of us the kind of people who might drink a beer once in a while or gasp even eat a vegan cookie page 286 will muddle on in pain, brain fog, weariness As much as I liked most of her ideas, she lost me when she explained that eating a single bad food once will disrupt your health for the next three months The best doctors leave us with a feeling of hope, something which I found lacking in this book.PS Gotta say, the meal plan looks really good This book suffers from the common ailment that plagues this sort of readings the solution to one s problem is much worse than the problem itself, at least when it comes to mild autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto s Moreover, the Myers Way may be at least somewhat realistic in the USA, but for anybody else where I live it s pure utopia Cut out all the grains, legumes, dairy, eggs, nightshades Even the tiniest particle of gluten that re enters your system, even from shampoo could destroy This book suffers from the common ailment that

s reasoning, and it seems quite convincing, but unfortunately this is not a viable solution for me personally, not by a long shot
