Living Well with Chronic Autoimmune Disease, Part 1
February 14, 2017
"The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook: A DIY Guide to Living Well with Chronic Disease" by MickeyTrescott and Angie Alt. Mickey and Angie are autoimmune disease sufferers and nutritional therapy consultants who learned through personal experience that diet and lifestyle are crucial to recovery. Autoimmune disorders are strikingly prevalent, especially among women. Many suffer from subclinical autoimmunity, which eludes diagnosis. Symptoms may be attributed to anxiety or depression in the absence of confirmatory blood tests, which only emerge after the diseases become full-blown. It’s best to identify and head off autoimmunity early, before serious damage occurs. Patients often need to be their own advocates for proper diagnosis and care. What is it about our modern Western lifestyles that contributes to the pervasiveness of autoimmunity? A comprehensive lifestyle strategy comprising stress management, support, movement, sleep optimization and diet can go a long way towards ameliorating symptoms. Why is the Paleo Diet a cornerstone of autoimmune wellness? Why are nightshades problematic for many sufferers? Click HERE for part 2.
