In January of this year, the Global Autoimmune Institute reported over 90 known autoimmune diseases. This list includes continues Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS), Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Chronic Ulcerative Stomatitis, Celiac Disease, Addison’s disease, Grave’s Disease etc. Scientists continue to discover more as time passes. The challenge is that most of these diseases have no categorical treatment and can only be managed in the meantime.

Your gut is home to 80% of your immune system. Without taking care of it, it is close to impossible to have a healthy and balanced immune system.

Help your gut help you by removing toxins and inflammatory food, and replenishing good bacteria, enzymes, and acids that can help support your immune system.
Managing symptoms is not the same as curing autoimmune disease, but great strides in science are being made to understand how to reverse autoimmune disorders. In the meantime, we have to make sure we are doing our part in supporting our immune system the best way we can - by giving it ample rest and nourishment.
