Autoimmune Diet In Orem Utah

If you have chronic pain you should consider adopting theautoimmune diet in Orem Utah

Before I go into the details of the autoimmune diet, let me explain what an autoimmune condition is and how diet impacts the pain associated with it.

First, an autoimmune condition is a situation where the body's own immune system turns against itself. A well known example is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. In this example, the immune system attacks the thyroid gland as though the gland were some sort of intruder in the body.

Maybe a better way of saying it is the immune system does not recognize what is self, so it attacks a certain tissue as though it were an intruder and to protect self the immune system goes after it.

What frequently happens is the person develops a leaky gut after some highly stressful event. Leaky gut is where gaps in the intestines develop. This allows food molecules to get out of the intestines. The immune system sees something (the food) that it normally doesn't see which then triggers an immune response.

Blood tests can be done to diagnose autoimmune conditions, unfortunately, they aren't very reliable because they only test for one type of antibody when there are five types produced.

So here it is:
