The Dangerous Myth About Autoimmune Disease – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON December 17, 2016 BY Drew Canole
50 million Americans are suffering from autoimmune related diseases RIGHT NOW! That’s your mom, grandfather, sister, neighbor, co worker, boss, that lady you always see in the elevator, the barista…and since you’re reading this blog, maybe it’s you too.
Did you know there are at least 80 different kinds of autoimmune disorders? Some of the most common are:
Today, I want to talk about the most dangerous myth about autoimmune disorders. And I’m going to give you a juice recipe that will give your immune system hundreds of healing micronutrients and give you a jumpstart into a healthier lifestyle.
The Most Dangerous Myth About Autoimmune Disease
There are a lot of myths out there about autoimmune disorders.
Just because a lot of people believe something, however, doesn’t make it true. And if these myths were harmless, that would be one thing. Unfortunately, a lot of the beliefs about autoimmune diseases are actually HURTING those that have them.
There is one however that REALLY makes my heart ache whenever I hear it, and that is…
“There’s nothing you can do about it.”
That goes right through your heart like a knife. I can PROMISE you that you will NEVER hear those words come out of my mouth!!! There is always hope. And in the case of autoimmune conditions, there are a ton of success stories, research and information to prove it.
As I am sure you’ve found, a large percentage of the mainstream medical system has failed to address the underlying cause of autoimmune disorders and instead, targets “symptom solution” with powerful immune suppressing medications.
This is like taking aspirin while standing on a nail. You’ve got to remove that nail!
Here are three ways to begin walking the road to real, vibrant wellness:
#1 Lower Inflammation
If you are suffering from an autoimmune disease then your system is on a never ending alert. When chronic inflammation exists for too long it triggers any genetic potential for autoimmune conditions.
If you want to improve your condition then you have got to tackle the inflammation in your body.
Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory plants EVER which is why it’s included in our juice recipe today.
#2 Heal Your Gut
I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say it again: your health begins and ends in your gut! There is simply no way around it.
70-80% of your immune system is in your gut! Right behind a VERY thin gut wall lining.
When your gut has been worn down by an overload of medications, antibiotics, sugar, gluten, grains, chemotherapy, mold, radiation, stress, surgeries and the like, your gut lining becomes permeable and leaky. Basically, it allows large undigested particles to slip through into your bloodstream, leading to food allergies and many unpleasant symptoms.
A healthy immune system is absolutely dependent on a healthy gut.
Green juice takes little to no energy for the gut to digest so it is very healing. Plus, it is packed with enzymes to help your body absorb and utilize all the goodness from the vegetables!
#3 Ditch Gluten
Nobody wants to hear that they should quit their gluten habit.
Here’s the facts: studies have found that when ANYONE with a gluten sensitivity eats gluten, the body responds by producing a chemical called zonulin. This chemical causes the intestinal walls to open up, or become permeable and leaky.
When this happens, all kinds of things start seeping into your bloodstream, including toxins and microbes. This obviously freaks your body out and causes all sorts of inflammation to pop up.
And then – you keep eating gluten. (I’ve done it too!) … the leaky gut gets worse. And so do your symptoms. And you find yourself on the path to developing an autoimmune condition, or several.
So ditch the gluten and start healing your gut lining with green juice!
