Reversing Autoimmunity for Lifelong Health
Time & Location
About the Event
Autoimmune disorders include over 80 conditions ranging from common illnesses such as thyroiditis to rare such as vasculitis. The causes are multifactorial involving both genetic and environmental triggers. When diagnosed with an autoimmune condition most are told there is no cure, however, identifying root causes and underlying triggers can help to minimise symptoms and in some cases reverse autoimmunity. This webinar will cover factors that are associated with increased susceptibility and therapeutic interventions. These factors include nutrition, stress, lifestyle, infections, and environmental exposures. For individuals who are willing and motivated to improve their health, many can overcome the signs and symptoms of autoimmunity leading to improved lifelong health.
