When the body is inflamed, your immune system becomes weakened. This can lead to the development of inflammatory autoimmune conditions. Continuing the cycle, autoimmune conditions cause more inflammation in the body. The autoimmune diet is a powerful way to help in reducing inflammation and autoimmune conditions.
To prevent, improve, or heal from an autoimmune condition, a key step is to reduce inflammation in the body. The food we eat can be our strongest medicine. Eating the right foods can assist your body in healing and eating the wrong foods can inflame the body.
An autoimmune diet focuses on real whole foods that are less likely to trigger inflammatory reactions rather than foods that are pro-inflammatory. .
