There are things in life we have no control over. Living with an Autoimmune Disease makes life more challenging in so many ways. Spending years of your life suffering or watching loved ones suffer is devastating. Diet and lifestyle choices have a profound effect on patients with Autoimmune Disease. We can't change our diagnosis, but our diet and lifestyle choices are completely in our hands. Adopting a diet that helps you lower inflammation, heal your gut, and get relief from your symptoms (migraines, digestive discomfort, acne, unexplained weight gain, exhaustion, anxiety, just to name a few) is something you can control.
You CAN get back to being you again. Doctors are amazing and can help us in emergencies or when we need intervention, but, day to day health is OUR OWN responsibility.
We need to learn to live in harmony with our bodies and our mind. It's time to stop judging and beating ourselves up. Loving and nourishing our bodies is the only way we will get the results we so desperately want.
