Autoimmune Disorders?

Our bodies are built with an amazing immune system. But what happens when that system gets confused and turns on itself? It begins to attack various areas of the body wreaking havoc. The result is an autoimmune disorder.

What causes autoimmune disorders?

We’ve been talking about one of the leading causes for weeks on ths show…and this week we are bringing back gluten expert, Dr. Tom O’Bryan.

In this show learn:

• Auto-immune Disease is the #1 cause of morbidity and mortality in the Industrialized World.
• The initiation and early development of auto-immune disease requires a triad of factors which includes environmental triggers. The most prevalent and common environmental trigger today is the food we eat.
• How diet and nutrition contribute to the development of auto-immune diseases.
