In America alone, 50 million people suffer from an autoimmune disease. Modern medicine is ineffective but there is a vure for autoimmune disease. In America alone, 50 million people suffer from an autoimmune disease. Modern medicine is ineffective an ineffective treatment, leaving sufferers to look for alternative therapies, of which one is the Paleo Approach, the subject of Sarah F Ballantyne, PhD’s new book.
The Paleo Approach is the first book to reveal how the paleo diet—a diet based on the presumed dietary habits of Palaeolithic humans—can be used to cure autoimmune disease. In the book, Ballantyne argues that certain foods such as low fat dairy and soy can contribute to the development of autoimmune diseases. By eating the paleo diet, Ballantyne argues, an individual can “calm the immune system, reduce inflammation, and help your body heal itself.”
One of the primary concerns for anyone starting a diet these days is “Can I afford it.” Let’s face it, times are tough for a lot of us, money is often short, sometimes we need to eat what we can afford. The paleo diet, however, is actually pretty affordable and certainly won’t break the bank.
So, with an economically viable way to cure autoimmune diseases, The Paleo Approach certainly seems to offer a lot, but does it deliver?
It is impossible, of course, to say for certain whether the approach works. Science will be the judge of that. But there’s more than enough reason to give Ballantyne’s approach serious consideration. A Ph.D in medical biophysics and many years research on the immune system make her plenty knowledgeable enough of her subject. But it’s her personal story that is most amazing and inspiring. She was diagnosed with Lichen Planus, an autoimmune disorder that led to numerous physical complaints. This led her to start the paleo diet, which , she says, helped her tremendously. It’s her knowledge and experience of the paleo diet which she presents in the book.
The book is well written, clear and easy to follow, providing an approachable way to improved health. Ballantyne’s blog, ThePaleoMom.com has become highly popular, which does testament to the importance of her work.
