Feeling totally fatigued, achy, and scattered isn’t just a sign of old age. When people feel like this, they can be going down that treacherous path towards autoimmune dysfunction or even have an undiagnosed autoimmune illness already, but you don’t have to suffer needlessly. The key is to repair your gut and restore immune health.
The conventional approach to treating autoimmune is to prescribe medications or injectable biologic in hopes of dealing with the symptoms. Now while this may seem a logical approach and definitely plays a role, there is an often overlooked process, and that is the inflammation-gut connection.
Do you know that your gut rules the health of your immune system and that most people’s gut health isn’t up to snuff?
Since your gut is so key when it comes to immune function, when gut infections or dysbiosis imbalances have spun out of control your entire immune system becomes overactive. Leaky gut aka intestinal permeability can be seen with autoimmune conditions such as Celiac, Crohn’s, IBS, Lupus Type 1, and even MS.
So let’s look at three ways to help with leaky gut in restoring autoimmune conditions.
- A guided elimination protocol. You want to eliminate all grains of soy, corn, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, and eggs. Keep in mind, this is not a forever nutrition protocol.
- Initiate a meditation exercise program to help with the side effects of stress.
- Functional lab testing to look for vitamin deficiencies and dysbiosis which has gut imbalances.
This may seem like a lot, but you don’t have to go it alone. We have a gut healing program where we help you every step of the way.
