    Rachel Remen, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Kitchen Table Wisdom
  • “1 in 6 Americans now suffer from autoimmunity, and conventional treatment is focused on suppressing symptoms with drugs. The T.I.G.E.R. Protocol offers a natural and effective "root cause" approach to healing autoimmune disease based on Dr. Akil's unique blend of functional medicine, ayurveda, and ancestral nutrition. I recommend this book to anyone seeking a more holistic approach to autoimmune disease.”
     
    Chris Kresser, New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Cure
  • “Autoimmune disease has increased in prevalence over the past 40 years and is now poised to be one of the leading causes of both shortened lifespan and quality of life. Unfortunately, the accepted strategies to manage these conditions are not infrequently as concerning as the disease itself. Fortunately, Dr. Akil has developed an approach to address the many factors contributing to autoimmunity. If you or someone you love suffers from autoimmunity, I highly recommend The Tiger Protocol – this book revolutionizes our understanding of autoimmune diseases.”
