New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried reveals how trauma can rewire your body to trigger autoimmune diseases—and provides a comprehensive plan to reset your immune system and finally heal.

We know that autoimmune disease—a condition when the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy tissue and cells—affects about one in ten Americans, or 24 million people, with prevalence increasing worldwide. But as New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried explains in this eye-opening new book, autoimmune disease may be even more pervasive than we realize—and its root cause may surprise you.

Conventional medicine falls short when it comes to both diagnosing and treating autoimmune disease. Many people suffer from mysterious symptoms—like severe fatigue, brain fog, aches and pains, feelings of tingling and numbness, stubborn weight gain, abdominal pain, digestive problems, hair loss, insomnia, and even anxiety—and don’t realize their immune system is at the root of their symptoms. In her precision medicine practice, Dr. Gottfried noticed a seemingly unusual pattern: many of her patients who suffer from autoimmune disease and symptoms have a history of trauma. Emerging research shows that up to 80% of patients with autoimmune disease experienced significant emotional distress before getting sick.

With The Autoimmune Cure, there is hope on the horizon for the tens of millions of people who suffer from autoimmune disease. Dr. Gottfried has created a powerful program designed to break the vicious cycle of autoimmune disease, reset your immune system, and restore your health, with advice on:

  • diet
  • sleep
  • supplements
  • breathwork
  • microbiome restoration
  • somatic therapy
  • ketamine-assisted treatment
  • microdosing psilocybin
  • MDMA-assisted therapy

The Autoimmune Cure offers a roadmap to lasting relief from autoimmune disease by addressing the root cause of the condition and healing the body, mind, and spirit.
