Here at Your Autoimmunity Connection, we strive to connect you to the latest information about autoimmune and chronic diseases through consulting & market research, writing, storytelling, and speaking. Together, we will reshape research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of autoimmune disease.
At the beginning of 2018, we started a spotlight series to shed light upon the current state of autoimmune diseases, care, and research in hopes of tackling this “invisible epidemic”. We wanted to provide you with accessible information on the latest statistics, research initiatives, supportive patient communities, digital health tools, and additional resources specific to your disease.
Toward the end of 2018, we decided to expand this spotlight series to encompass food as medicine and therapy, and thus started a new food series connecting food and autoimmune diseases.
Our goal is to support all autoimmune patients on your individual journeys to achieving optimal health and wellbeing. We know that each of you has your own unique struggles, which means your path to feeling healthy will be unique as well. That’s why we provide both general autoimmune and specific disease information. We encourage you to experiment with what works for your body!
In light of March being National Autoimmune Awareness Month, we have collected all of our spotlight posts and arranged them alphabetically according to disease below:
Ehler’s Danlos syndromes:
Irritable bowel syndrome:
Mixed connective tissue disease:
Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis:
Check out our newest e-book on conquering your chronic disease!
We hope these spotlights help you learn more about your disease and how to minimize your symptoms. Let us know what kinds of food, movement, or alternative therapies work for you in the comments!
