Autoimmunity is the number two cause of chronic illness, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA), a nonprofit health agency dedicated to increasing awareness of autoimmune diseases. This is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the body and releases proteins called antobodies that then attack the cells in the body like your joints, skin, bowls, or other organs.
A hot topic on the autoimmune disease front is the role that chronic inflammation—present in many autoimmune diseases—plays in its development.
Some inflammatory processes may enhance the possibility of autoimmune disease in individuals with a genetic predisposition. Having inflammation may raise the likelihood of a subclinical autoimmune response reaching clinical thresholds.
While there may be lack of evidence-based information for dietary treatments for autoimmune diseases, many clients find that focusing healthy, whole food, non-processed diets there are improvements in symptoms. We focus on nutrition as a method to help reduce pain from inflammation, slowing the progression of the disease, and boosting the immune system.
