Focusing on Gut Health to Battle Autoimmune Disease

Focusing on Gut Health to Battle Autoimmune Disease

May 01 , 2021

Your immune system is vitally important to protecting your body from bacteria and infections. But, when out of balance, your immune system can become a danger to the very body it was designed to protect.

Autoimmune disorders manifest a long list of diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and Celiac Sprue disease, to name a few. The common thread is an immune system that mistakes healthy tissues and organs as being foreign to the body. In response, the body produces antibodies to attack its own tissues, resulting in symptoms that are devastating, debilitating and exhausting.

Autoimmune Disease Marker Testing
Autoimmune diseases can take years to develop in your body prior to being diagnosed. It is during the early developmental stages that autoimmune disease markers can be detected. Early detection via Autoimmune Disease Marker Detection gives you an opportunity to be proactive in preventing and reversing autoimmunity.

The Importance of Gut Health
Inflammation in the body is a primary component of autoimmune diseases. Prolonged inflammation can cause serious damage to the body. However, there are certain foods that can help alleviate inflammation of the gut and improve gut health, including citrus fruits, red bell peppers, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spinach, almonds, yogurt (unsweetened), and turmeric. If you have an autoimmune disease, some foods to avoid are those that have acidic, fatty and spicy qualities as well as alcohol, soda, and coffee.

Probiotics are very helpful in the prevention and healing of  “leaky gut” which is a digestive condition where bacteria and toxins leak through the wall of the intestine.

Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC)
Therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) is a multifactorial approach to the prevention, arrest, and reversal of most of the major chronic and autoimmune diseases that plague many Americans. Seek out a qualified healthcare practitioner(s) to personally design a therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) plan to address the root cause of your disease and help your body to restore its innate ability to heal. TLC can help you to avoid the toxic side effects of many medications and can help strengthen your immune system through proper diet, exercise, sleep quality, hormone balance, gut repair, stress management, treatment of infections, toxin removal, and vitamins, minerals and other supplements.

Different lifestyle changes can help prevent, treat, and even reverse symptoms of autoimmune disease. Focusing on nutrition, gut repair, and effective vitamins and minerals provide alternative treatment options to medications that often contain toxic side effects.
