Autoimmune Conditions

What are Autoimmune Diseases?

An autoimmune disease occurs when the body attacks itself and causes organ and tissue damage. The early stages of autoimmunity are often characterized by joint pain, weight gain, brain fog, fatigue, digestive discomfort, and mood disorders. A full-blown autoimmune diagnosis occurs typically occurs years after the damage has begun and many of early symptoms are dismissed as normal aging. Often people simply mask the symptoms with pain killers, antacids, caffeine…

Nutrition Can Help Prevent Autoimmune Diseases

The key to preventing any autoimmune disease is a functional nutrition approach: a healthy gut, identifying root causes and a nutrient dense diet that works for your unique physiology and lifestyle. There is no cure for autoimmunity. Once diagnosed, it cannot be reversed. However, many of the symptoms can be very successfully managed, and often eliminated for long periods of time.
