Autoimmune disease is a silent epidemic that currently affects approximately 50 million Americans, 80% of which ARE WOMEN. More women are diagnosed each year with an autoimmune disease than breast cancer and cardiovascular disease combined. World wide, Europeans and Scandinavians are already at the rate as Americans. Autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system becomes misdirected and attacks the organs it was designed to protect.
In this episode we dive into how the body starts to attack itself, aka the ROOT CAUSES of Autoimmunity, why it affects women more than men and how my guest, Ryan Monahan, & I go far beyond managing our Autoimmune Disease. We are both THRIVING and now teaching others how to thrive even when you’ve been told, “You will have this forever, there’s nothing you can do about it”. If you’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and are interested in lifestyle interventions THIS IS YOUR EPISODE.
