What's Wrong With My Body Now? Tools for Living with Autoimmune Mysteries and Chronic Pain by Jill Wolff

My discoveries and insights may help if you, or someone you love, have a hyperactive immune system, allergies, or chronic pain.  This book describes the unconventional tools that I use to manage my runaway immune activity.  Some of these tools and ideas might provide you with comfort and support while your immune system works on a virus infection.

This body had a defective immune system when I moved in so immune hyperactivity has been a lifelong affliction for me. Immune system responses can affect different body areas but the system uses the same mechanisms whether it is working on a toxin or a virus. The Autoimmune reactions made me feel like I always had some degree of the flu, along with its overall achy pain and fatigue. But doctors wouldn't help me because it was much easier for them to say that “it’s just in your head."  

Since a magic pill wasn’t available, I found tools that I could use to actively manage the reactions' effect on my life and to make this body as comfortable as is possible.  The book includes chapters about Autoimmune and allergic reactions, using food as medicine for IBS, essential oils, cold therapy, medical marijuana, PTSD, and dog allergies.  It also has a Resources chapter with links to supplemental information and personal stories from people with similar experiences.

My immune reactions have included a mini-stroke and a heart arrhythmia episode with a near-death experience, which is described in the book.  As we are all exposed to viruses and higher levels of chemical toxicity, those of us with sensitive immune systems are experiencing illnesses that could be a harbinger for people with healthy bodies.
