Autoimmunity

At their core, all autoimmune conditions are the result of your immune system attacking your own body. And they’re all connected by one common element: chronic inflammation. The five factors that I’ve identified that lead to chronic inflammation are diet, leaky gut, toxin exposure, infections, and chronic stress, or a combination of them. Whether you’re dealing with symptoms like digestive issues or dry eyes, or a full-blown autoimmune disease such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, you can find help here in reducing the inflammatory factors in your life and taking back control of your health.

Do you think you have an autoimmune condition?


While there are many different types of autoimmune diseases that affect many different organs, all autoimmune conditions are the result of your immune system attacking your own body.

When your body is working overtime to defend itself against something potentially dangerous – an allergen, toxin, infection, or even food – it can easily become stressed and mistakenly attack your own tissues instead of potential invaders, causing a wide range of symptoms.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, especially a combination of several of them, you may have an autoimmune condition.

Success!
