Product Description: This extraordinary guide connects the causes of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, chemical sensitivities, and multiple allergic response syndromes with digestive disorders. It identifies the causes, effects and solutions using a non-drug, natural approach.
Poisoned is written by a doctor, turned victim, of a chemically-induced immune system disorder who recovered. Dr. Gilbere chronicles her challenges form a life-threatening fall and the resulting prescription drug side-effects that led to fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, food and environmental allergic responses, anaphylactic reactions, and her journey from near starvation to recovery. She combines personal and professional experiences with scientific research - focusing on health-care, not symptom-care that becomes drug-management.
