50 Million Americans – Are you one?
According to the American Autoimmune Related Disease Association, 50 million Americans are living with an autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which the body attacks itself by releasing autoantibodies that mistakenly attack healthy cells. There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases, some are rare, and some are quite common. They are currently the leading cause of death and disability.
The cause of autoimmune disease is unknown but has been associated with damage to the gut lining.
Another possible cause of autoimmune disease is stress, according to Harvard Health.
It is typically seen as an inflammatory condition with unknown origin, and traditional medicine will often treat autoimmune disease with anti-inflammatory drugs to control symptoms. The public is told that there is no cure for autoimmune disease and that once you have it, you have it forever.
My experience with autoimmune disease lasted seven years and ended four months after beginning my radical lifestyle changes, which I now COACH PEOPLE on how to do. After years of suffering with Ulcerative Colitis, and trying everything possible to beat the disease, I learned about an unorthodox way of eating, fasting, and managing my stress that changed everything for me.
If you are genuinely ready to make changes and willing to do the work, true healing can happen. I believe you can HEAL yourself with the right practices.
I’ve written a book detailing my story, my hisory that contributed to the disease and how I fixed it along with all the reseach supporting the link between autoimmune disease and gut health.
