Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, respected health blogger, autoimmune expert and dedicated mom delivers the first-ever complete guidebook to help manage autoimmune disease through Paleo diet and lifestyle in: The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body. In this revolutionary new book, Dr. Ballantyne draws upon current medical research and her own battle with an autoimmune disorder to show readers how to integrate the principles of the Paleo lifestyle to become completely symptom-free—the natural way.
The Paleo Approach is hailed as a first of its kind since it fills a clear void in current Paleo literature. Not only does the book concentrate on autoimmune disease but is packed with detailed scientific explanations of how the foods people eat and the lifestyle choices can significantly impact the body. This all comes alongside expert advice on implementing this information into practical application for everyday life.
“To me, it’s imperative to approach diet and lifestyle choices from the perspective of the current scientific literature,” said Ballantyne. “It’s also important not only to communicate what to do to the public, but to explain why in a way that everyone can understand but without oversimplifying, and then provide practical strategies to really do it.”
Dr. Ballantyne goes beyond Paleo ‘theory’ bringing together many years of research, with personal application and indisputable results. Ballantyne has distilled this complex scientific research into accessible and adaptable tools for any reader looking to obtain a much deeper understanding of how food and lifestyle affects autoimmune disease and overall health. Not only does she identify the problems but provides a clear cut guide to change - aimed at complete healing and recovery.
