Annotated Bibliography

Schulze, Richard. Colds & Flu: A Clinical Doctor/Patient Manual. 1st ed., Natural Healing

Publications, 2010.

This book is about naturally treating the cold and flu, and building the immune

system. Dr. Schulze goes in-depth in explaining how the immune system works, which is

what interested me. His purpose in explaining the process of the immune system, was to

help the reader understand what is going on and to give them a background of how

everything works. He states that you dont need to know about that if you just want to

feel better, but he thinks it is necessary to explain the behind the scenes to the reader to

help them better understand what really goes on in their body when their immune system

gets to work.

I learned a lot about the immune system from this source. I learned mostly about

T and B-cells and what their role is in fighting off sickness and disease. The book also

talked about how the immune cells have neuropeptide receptors that allow the cells to

listen and react to your thoughts and emotions, which ultimately means that, staying

positive is a huge part in healing. This is all related to my inquiry topic because, I am

trying to get a better understanding of how the immune system works in order to help

come to a conclusion with my topic.


Dr. Richard Schulze was told at the young age of 16, that he would be dead by 20

if he didnt undergo a massive, open-heart surgery to fix his deformed and diseased heart.

His heart wouldnt be able to pump a sufficient amount of blood throughout an adult

body, as a result, he would die. He chose not to go through with the surgery and

completely changed his entire lifestyle. When he was 19, he went back to the same

doctors that told him he would die, and they were amazed. His heart had completely

healed and was healthy. They told him it was a miracle. Since then, Dr. Schulze has

acquired seven degrees (two doctorates and two masters) in areas such as, Herbology and

Natural Medicine. He also has eight different types of body therapy certifications. He

taught at the school he graduated from for about 2 decades, while working directly with

other famously known natural doctors. He has owned, directed, managed several clinics

around the globe since the early 1970s, and in that time, he has had over thousands of

patients. Most of his patients have been told that there is nothing that can be done for

them and so they went to Dr. Schulze, the Herb Doc, and were miraculously healed.

Hyman, Mark. How to Stop Attacking Yourself: 9 Steps to Heal Autoimmune Disease. Dr.

Hyman, 14 June 2016,


This was a blog is about autoimmune diseases and how to heal them. In the blog

he tells a story about one of his patients that had all sorts of problems and was told that he

had some autoimmune disease but they werent sure which one. He developed several

more problems with his health and eventually went to Dr. Hyman. After visiting Dr.

Hyman, he was in significantly better health, and everything was back to normal. He

notes many different things to help the immune system and heal your body.

The information that I found useful was about using supplements to help the

immune system. Dr. Hyman, gave his patient nutrients like fish oil, vitamin C and D, and

probiotics. These nutrients help build up the immune system. He also suggests

completely getting rid of all allergens in the diet. While that may seem incredibly

obvious, it can be very difficult for Carissa because of how sensitive she is to the

allergens. He also mentions reducing inflammation, which helps heal the body too.

Dr. Mark Hyman attended Cornell University, Ottawa University School of

Medicine, where he obtained his M.D. in medicine, and University of California, San

Francisco School of Medicine. He is a medical editor for The Huffington Post, as well

as, the founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center, and the chairman of

the board of the Institute for Functional Medicine.

Additives, and Medications; along with Facts about Allergy Diagnosis and Treatment,

Tips on Avoiding Triggers and Preventing Symptoms, a Glossary of Related Terms, and

Directories of Resources for Additional Help. Fifth ed., Omnigraphics, Inc., 2016.

This book contains basic information about different types of allergies and a little

bit about the immunes system dealing with allergies. There were only sections of the

book that were important to my topic. These sections included chapters on things such as,

egg and dairy allergies, histamine, immunology, and the immune system.

The first part of the book talks about how the immune system works in relation

with allergies. This gave me a little more knowledge about the immune system in regards

to allergies. Other parts of the book that were useful to me were chapters about

anaphylaxis and food allergies, milk allergies, egg allergies. Those sections of the book

were very helpful in my understanding of why allergies and their symptoms occur. It also

informed me about something called immunology, which could be useful in the future.

This book is a part of a series called the Health Reference Series. The book

contains documents and excerpts from publications issued by several U.S. government

agencies such as: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Disease Control

(CDC),, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Institute of

Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and several others. All of the sources used,

have been cited in the book. These books in the series are reviewed by medical

consultants to ensure accuracy. The two medical consultants that reviewed this particular

book are: Dr. Senthil Selvan, MBBS, DCH, MD, and Dr. K. Sivanandham, MBBS, DCH,

MS (Research), PhD.

Third ed., Omnigraphics, 2017.


The book contains a wide variety of information about immune system disorders.

In the first part of the book it gives in-depth information about the immune system itself

and how it works. I used this book mainly for that information. There were also some

other things in the book that were of use to me. It included two separate chapters, one on

allergies, and another on anaphylaxis. There, it talked about some basic information

about both topics.

There was a lot of helpful information in this book that helped me better

understand the immune system. I needed to know more about how the immune system

works and parts of the immune system in order to learn more about allergies in general. It

gave me a lot of knowledge about the dynamics of the system and a little background

about why the allergy symptoms occur.

This book is a part of a series called the Health Reference Series. The book

contains documents and excerpts from publications issued by several U.S. government

agencies such as: Center for Disease Control (CDC),, Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and several others. All of

the sources used, have been cited in the book. These books in the series are reviewed by

Bierman, Charles Warren, editor. Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology from Infancy to Adulthood.

Third ed., W.B. Saunders Company, 1996.


This book had more information about allergies, anaphylaxis, and immunology.

There were several chapters and other sections in the book that were very helpful to me

and provided me with a lot of information about each topic. There was a much more

extensive chapter on immunology than the other sources.

I found the chapters on allergies, anaphylaxis, and immunology very useful to me

because it gave me a much better understanding of these things and how they work in a

different perspective than the other sources. The immunology chapter helped me

determine that, although it could be a possibility, it is not completely safe yet and hasnt

had much research done on it yet.

This book was a compilation of information from over 100 people, all with either

an M.D., PhD title, or both. Each contributor is listed in the book with a brief description

of who they are, what school they attended, what they studied, and what their degree is

in. It also tells you what it is that they contributed to this book. The book provides all of

its references after each chapter.

Brown, Justin and Cyndi O'Meara, directors. What's with Wheat. Changing Habits, 2016.

This documentary was mainly about wheat and gluten intolerances. It talked about

the effect that wheat and gluten have on the body and what getting rid of it from our diet

could do for us. It talked about the process that wheat goes through that makes it so bad

for the body.

This documentary, although about wheat and gluten, had some

information that was related to my topic. There was one part in the documentary in

specific that talked about intolerances to food. There were a few things mentioned that

could possibly work in order to help reduce Carissas allergies if nothing else.

The documentary was directed by Justin Brown and Cyndi OMeara.

Cyndi OMeara is a nutritionist who graduated with a BSc majoring in Nutrition from

Deakin University. Many of the people that were a part of the documentary specialize in

nutrition. David Perlmutter attended the University of Miami School of Medicine where

he received an M.D. degree and awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award. He

is a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He has

published in The Journal of Applied Nutrition, where it was extensively peer-reviewed.

Dr. Terry Wahls is another big part of this documentary. She is a clinical professor of

medicine and the University of Iowa. She has also published a few books about medicine

and diet. She is the Director for Extended Care and Rehab Service Line at the Veteran

Affairs Iowa City Health Care System. There are many others that were a big

contribution to this documentary, all of which are well-versed in the area of nutrition like

David and Terry.
