Over 20 million Americans suffer from debilitating chronic illnesses with varying symptoms. Children can be healthy one day, then crippled the next with emotional outbursts and bizarre symptoms. High-achieving adults can find it impossible to focus or sustain their energy. Now we know why.
A new autoimmune disease has emerged. Exciting medical research at the cutting-edge has clearly identified the condition, but most physicians do not yet understand how the symptoms are connected, much less how to treat this disease, so you can regain your vitality.
WHY YOU ARE STILL SICK explains this new autoimmune disease and shows you the steps you can take to recover. The power to take charge of your own health is in your hands. These are the same techniques Dr. Gary Kaplan uses to treat autoimmune diseases at The Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine with astonishing success.
According to Dr. Gary Kaplan, conventional thinking about the nature of chronic pain and depression is essentially flawed. Although physicians continue to diagnose conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic back pain, depression, anxiety, and PTSD, a growing body of research shows that these are in fact symptoms of something else – a deep-rooted inflammation in the brain. This inflammation can affect the nervous system for months—even years—to devastating effect.
In Total Recovery, Dr. Kaplan demonstrates that it is possible to “quiet” the inflammatory state at the root of chronic pain and depression, and lays out a revolutionary new medical approach to ending your suffering, and reclaiming your health.
