Have you been plagued with boils, cysts, ingrown hairs and acne-like bumps? Do they take months to resolve, leave embarrassing scars and cause considerable pain? Have you been to the doctor, only to leave with a prescription for antibiotics, few answers and little to no hope? Until now, there has been no standardized treatment that has worked particularly well for the skin condition Hidradenitis suppurativa, a disease that affects upwards of 12 million people in the US alone. Tara Grant, a 20-year sufferer of HS, has put the condition into complete remission by eliminating certain foods she calls her "triggers," healing her leaky gut and eating a natural Primal diet. Within these pages, you'll find a practical, easy-to-follow guide to slam your HS into remission and regain your health and confidence. There is no need to suffer any longer or to undergo experimental surgery. Tara explains the emotional problems many HS sufferers experience, what causes HS in the first place, and most importantly, how to get rid of it forever. Once the domain of specialized doctors, this book contains information from medical studies and from Paleo doctors and naturopaths, translated so that you can easily understand what you need to do to rid yourself of HS forever. This groundbreaking work calls attention to a condition that many of us suffer from but are afraid to talk about - Hidradenitis suppurativa: the Hidden Plague.

Within three weeks of diet changes and lifestyle changes - well wow what a difference. No longer am I unable to walk or leave my bed. It is now 3 months on and my life has been transformed so much that i am drug free, no more morphine and antibiotics. My tummy has never been better and my skin is transformed. I still get the occasional flare when i reintroduce a food that does not agree with me but it is usually gone within a few days instead of a few months.
The book is presented in 2 sections - the first part is all the available research and thinking to date but not written in complicated, hard to understand science speak. Instead it is written for the average person to understand what has been found out and what the body is doing. The second part is a guided action section that helps you to remove common and not so common food offenders, how to reintroduce foods back into the diet and how to track progress in a way that clarifies what you can and cannot eat as an individual.
I know some people mourn the loss of favourite foods and associations with eating socially but to be honest for me all those social moments had already been shelved and replaced with huge pain, nasty lesions and numerous hospital visits, so I embraced the changes and accepted that if i wanted to be living a life then some things would have to go.Read more ›
Autoimmune disorders cover a vast array of conditions - some of the most common include rheumatoid arthritis, Grave's disease, psoriasis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). With "The Hidden Plague" - Tara's honesty, suggestions, research and personal experience demonstrate how foods can trigger autoimmune disorders through leaky gut leading to systemic inflammation but most importantly provides some welcome solutions on tackling the potential root causes - I wish a guide like this was available for me when I needed it many years ago!
Here's a few reasons why I enjoyed this book:
What to eat, what not to eat (and most importantly - why!);
How to determine potential trigger foods and personalise your diet;
A comprehensive review on the role (and importance) of hormones when it comes to health;
The importance of keeping track of your condition by maintaining a health journal (with a useful appendix provided);
Why conventional treatments don't work and can be more painful then the condition itself!;
A great external resource section;
Useful tips to tackle any setbacks you may face;
a well written piece of work!
I really enjoyed reading this book, thanks Tara for this resource highlighting the importance of food as medicine!
Ive discovered that when I fall it is my own fault, inflammation due to eating crap in a moment of stupidity. I am off the hurley scale, but this book gave me hope and strength to continue the battle, even when it bloody hurts.
Now going to compliment the advice with a scholarly study of herbs.
The following quotation I found interesting...referring to H.S.?
Derby herbalist George Slack (1919, 107). “The author once cured a man who was suffering from boils and abscesses nearly all over his body with burdock and yarrow made into a strong decoction, and drunk freely. He had been ill five months, and was given up to die; but in one month he was restored.”
Anyway great book. Thanks
