    • What foods harm or support healing?

    For the past four years I’ve been researching and writing a book to help people who seek to reverse and prevent autoimmune conditions. I simply couldn’t sit idly by while people continued to suffer. I am honored and excited to share that Mark Hyman, MD, Functional Medicine pioneer and eleven-time New York Times bestselling author, wrote the foreword!
