Did you know Autoimmune Diseases (AD) include roughly 80-120 different groups of related conditions? AND they affect roughly 5-8% of the U.S. population, are the 3rd most common disease behind heart disease + cancer, and affect more women than men.
AD begins when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs and stays in a hyper-immune condition from a combination of chronic inflammation, high toxic load in the body along poor gut health + poor diet. Here are just a few of the most common AD conditions:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Fibromyalgia (not outright AD but shares similar symptoms)
- Chronic IBS + many more
People who suffer from AD often experience loss of function, daily pain, disability, depression, and an impaired quality of life.
I encourage you to watch my YouTube Video below to learn more about how you can begin to cool, calm your immune system and help reduce the pain and chronic inflammation.
