An autoimmune disease occurs when the body mistakenly attacks its own tissues, and this can lead to a wide range of symptoms throughout the body.
The question is what triggers the body to turn on itself? Researchers are beginning to recognize that a mix of genetics and environment is responsible—whether toxic exposures, infections, or perhaps diet. It is also known that inflammation is a factor in autoimmune diseases.
When we identify the hidden stressors such as stress, hidden infections, food allergies or sensitivities, toxic exposure, genetic predisposition, nutrient deficiencies, and leaky gut, the body can begin to calm down.
Through lifestyle changes and nutritional adjustments, we can often bring balance back to our bodies.
