Saving My Son by Pamela Wirth is an educational book on health. It gives insight into autoimmune diseases. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), "autoimmune diseases result from a dysfunction of the immune system, which is supposed to protect us from disease and infection." How can this illness be gotten? What can parents do to keep their kids safe and healthy? Readers will find answers to these questions — and more — in the book.

The first thing that attracted me to the writing was the author sharing her experience. She described her family's struggles when one of her sons became ill and was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. The situation changed her life and taught her about many health challenges. Readers would find her narrative relatable. Her advice would be readily accepted because the author had walked the path of finding a cure for an autoimmune disease.

Appropriate materials and resources were gathered in writing the book. The author added so many details and health information, with adequate referencing. Also in the book are stories from other parents and people who might have direct experience with the disease. The writing was clear and easy to make out. Also, the book was not unnecessarily voluminous.

Saving My Son will be loved and appreciated by health professionals and anyone interested in learning more about autoimmune illnesses. The information in this book will be of great value to many parents. Some medical professionals offer their advice and expertise in the book; the book even provides some questions and answers to aid understanding. The following questions are interesting: "Can you explain how a bacterial or viral infection can "trigger" autoimmune disease in children? What are your thoughts on antibiotics as a tool for treating autoimmune issues in kids? Is there such a thing as too much? What do you wish more parents understood about nutrition and immune health?" The author adequately answers these questions.

The book is quite educative and very essential. I commend the author for sharing her story with the world and allowing her readers to learn from her experience. This is the first time I've heard of or read about this disease, and I appreciate having found so much helpful information here. For example, I have learned that obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be associated with a strep infection. I now know better than to play with my health, which might affect my children in the long run.

Saving My Son has helped me understand the underlying causes of many diseases, including depression. It is exceptionally well edited with no negative aspects. Therefore, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.

It's good that the book tackles a few other illnesses, as you mentioned OCD, I would like to know how this disease affects the well-being of a person. Your review is simply beautiful to read.

This book seems to be very informative and educative. I appreciate the research the author did and the resources referenced. Health is a major part of our life and I can only imagine the author's struggles with her son's health.
