The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook – A DIY Guide To Living Well with Chronic Illness
In our interview, Angie and Mickey teach several key principles for recovering from autoimmune disease:
Empowerment – because it means the difference between wellness as drudgery and wellness and joy.
Rebel Thinking – because autoimmune healing requires outside the box thinking and innovative methods – old school status quo doesn’t work.
Gentle Transitioning/Practical Application – because all the dietary & lifestyle adjustments in the world won’t help you achieve wellness if the implementation is a merciless process or the steps are impractical.
You can live a vibrant, healthy life with autoimmune disease, by being proactive about your health and managing your care, both conventionally and naturally.
Seven actions to the road to recovery include inform, collaborate, nourish, rest, breathe, move, and connect.
Try an elimination and reintroduction protocol, like the autoimmune protocol, to get at the root of food-driven symptoms.
