She tried a plant-based diet, supplements, eating raw and cleanses, but nothing helped with her fatigue, hair loss and other symptoms., As a last resort, she switched to a paleo diet, cutting out grains and beans and adding grass-fed meats, bone broth, eggs and wild-caught fish.

The second part of the book shares 115 of Mickey's delicious recipes for alleviating the symptoms of autoimmune disease., There are also two 4-week meal planners and tips for shopping, batching and preparing ahead that make following the plan as easy as possible.
