His book, The Autoimmune Fix: How to Stop the Hidden Autoimmune Damage That Keeps You Sick, Fat, and Tired Before It Turns Into Disease is a must-read for everyone who wants to find a path to better health.
Dr. O’Bryan’s mission: ‘Making It Easy to Do the Right Thing’ is more than an idea, it’s a way of life. Dr. O’Bryan is an internationally celebrated, sought-after speaker on multiple issues that affect our health, from environmental toxins, to food sensitivities, to the early development of autoimmune diseases and how to manage them.
Dr. O’Bryan talks about his journey, the path that inspired him and led him to his current passion—helping people lead healthier lives. He talks about some early problems he and his wife had with infertility. Through his research he found the key to fertility issues that opened the door to a healthy pregnancy, and he quickly became the go-to guy for couples who were experiencing problems with infertility and just couldn’t get pregnant. He explains testing, and some of the mineral deficiencies that relate to fertility issues.
As Dr. O’Bryan explains, most traditional health practitioners are simply not trained to go ‘upstream’ as he calls it, meaning they don’t often know how to take a deeper look into issues that could be confounding or extremely complex. As he explains, traditional health practitioners are more like ‘crisis practitioners’ as they deal with crises, and they do it well, but there are many underlying issues in ‘healthcare medicine’ that could be overlooked.
Dr. O’Bryan talks in detail about environmental toxins, and provides some surprising information about common products that may be putting toxins into our bodies, products that millions of people use daily. He talks about toxins in regard to accumulation, explaining that long term use of a toxic product, or exposure, are possible paths to health
The autoimmune disease expert discusses the concept of patience, meaning that we all need to take a more patient path to solving our health problems, applying sensible principles to improve our health overall instead of looking for the quick fix, as we so often do. As he explains, reading is the key, as there is a wealth of information on health, and how we can all go upstream, meaning we can find better solutions, better ways of managing our health, and new ways of eradicating toxins from our bodies and our environment.
