The Main Causes Of Autoimmune Disease And How To Reverse It

Episode 450 43m


Autoimmune disease is an extremely common and growing issue in our global population, affecting millions of people worldwide. Autoimmune diseases vary in symptoms and severity, but they all have one thing in common: the body is attacking itself. Typically, when someone has one autoimmune disease, it’s likely they have more than one. Examples of autoimmune diseases are type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and Crohn’s, Hashimoto’s, and Graves’.

This episode is the first in a new series I’m calling masterclass, where I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about popular health topics including inflammation, autoimmune disease, brain health, sleep, and much more. Today’s episode explores the five main root causes of autoimmune disease—toxins, allergens, microbes, diet, and stress—and the Functional Medicine approach to treating them.
