Are you suffering with an AutoImmune Disease?

A healthy immune system can tell the difference between healthy cells in your body and foreign invaders like viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.   If your immune system becomes dysfunctional and starts attacking healthy cells, autoimmune disease conditions can happen.

Unfortunately autoimmune diseases are becoming more and more common in our society today.  Why?

Studies show there is a link between our gut health and our immune health.  Considering the majority of our immune systems cells reside in our gastrointestinal lining – this makes perfect sense!

According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, there are over 100 Autoimmune diseases in existence today.

Here are just a few:
  • Addison’s disease
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Crohn’s disease

  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Raynaud’s phenomenon
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sjögren’s syndrome
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Ulcerative colitis (UC)
Symptoms associated with these diseases can vary widely but may include:
  • fatigue
  • achy muscles
  • swelling and redness
  • low-grade fever
