Overcoming Autoimmune Disease, Part 1: The Odds Are In Your Favor

Diabetes, Guillain-Barre syndrome, Pacreatitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Narcolepsy, Endometriosis, Hashimotos, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Restless Leg Syndrome:  What do they all have in common?  They are all Autoimmune (or autoimmune related) 'diseases' and, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, close to 50 million people in the United States alone suffer from Autoimmune Disease.  I used to be one of them, but I no longer suffer. I found out that autoimmune disease is only 15-30% genetic and a whopping 70-85% environmental!!!  But what does that mean?!  Well, to me, it meant that I had had potentially 85% influence over whether or not my autoimmune diseases progressed.  And to me, that meant whether or not I ended up in a wheel chair.  Yet, what I discovered, is that by using that information to my advantage and by exploiting my own body's ability to heal itself?  My autoimmune diseases went into remission! Now I am a Holistic Health Coach and a Spiritual Coach and Mentor, and have dedicated my life to helping others.  Contact me for a free 30 minute consult! http://youtu.be/Ba4eUOPi80Q Please understand, I am not an isolated case!  Countless people are overcoming autoimmune disease and sending their diseases into remission.  The thing is, we can probably ever be clinically considered 'healed'.  Why?  Because we have the genes that can be 'switched on' or 'switched off' by lifestyle choices and environmental factors.  These variables include all of the things I mentioned in the video and many, many more (even right down to whether or not you've ever 'caught' a virus sometime in your life).  Autoimmune disease is very complex.  At the cellular level, does it really matter what the exact mechanisms are, to turn on the switch to your system for the disease process to take place?  If you know that you've got potentially 85% control over whether or not that happens, why not focus on changing that 85% to be in your favor? And that's exactly what I did. I stopped focusing on my diagnosis' and what caused them, and I started focusing on health and what causes health!  When I walk into my bedroom at night, I really don't care what goes on behind the walls to make the light come on when I flip that switch.  All I care about is that I have a switch to flip, and how to flip it.  So, research shows that diet and lifestyle can flip the genetic switch to 'turning' autoimmune disease on or off.  Great!  Stayed tuned for some ways to 'flip your switch' and exploit your body's own natural healing capabilities.
