Your immune system is designed to protect your body’s healthy cell tissues by attacking any viruses, bacteria, pathogens, or diseases that enter your body. Simply put, it’s what prevents you from getting sick, and also what helps you feel better if you do fall ill.
However, autoimmune diseases are different. They cause your immune system to get confused and attack the healthy cells in your body instead of diseased ones. When your body’s defence systems are working against it, serious health problems may occur.
There are hundreds of autoimmune illnesses, each of which have their own unique symptoms. Autoimmune conditions can affect a wide range of systems in the body including the thyroid, skin, digestive tract, nervous system, joints and brain.
If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, your doctor may suggest that you make changes to your diet and lifestyle to help manage your condition. Adopting an anti inflammatory diet and taking steps to manage stress and improve sleep have been shown to be helpful.
If you would like support in implementing food and lifestyle changes to manage an autoimmune disease, schedule an appointment with Real Food Coaching today.
