The AIP Adventure Continues…

Those who have been following along with me know that I was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome earlier this year, and started using the Autoimmune Protocol to help my symptoms. I noticed good success and decided to train as a coach in the system. It has been an interesting journey, watching my symptoms improve since that time. I can honestly say I am feeling better than I have in a long time. Now, at last, my energy is returning, my brain fog has lifted, and I feel much calmer and more optimistic about life. Not to mention the joint pain has improved, the eyes are less dry and I am sleeping better! It really brings home the point of how important, and how basic, a nutrient rich diet and supportive lifestyle are. There is no cure for this condition, but so much can be done to reduce the intensity and frequency of flares. New research on Sjögren’s syndrome and on all autoimmune disease, is showing that there is a link between the gut bacteria, which of course is highly influenced by diet, and autoimmune disease. If you optimize the gut bacteria you can reduce the impact of the disease. Stress also contributes in a huge way to autoimmune flares, and figuring out what triggers the flare and how to prevent it is key. Do you have autoimmune disease?
