When I went to the 2014 Los Angeles Autoimmune Disorder Conference, my only reason for going was to figure out the new methods that might treat the illness. An aunt of mine got diagnosed with this condition, you see, and it had been affecting her work and relationships ever since. Hence, I thought that attending the event would show me the different ways to resolve the issues with her autoimmunity.
Nevertheless, the conference taught me something better. Although there is no likely cure for the disorder even now, there are practical ways to prevent triggering it.
1. Avoid Products With Gluten
The first thing to keep in mind is that you need to stay gluten-free no matter what kind of autoimmune disease you may be carrying. This protein, frankly speaking, mostly affects individuals whose stomach lining gets attacked by their immune system. However, it is also capable of being the cause of an adverse immune response in other body parts; that’s why you should let go of it at once.
2. Go Organic
Since the real cause of autoimmune disorders may have something to do with what you eat, you should also consider sticking to organic foods as soon as you get diagnosed. A good rule of thumb when picking fresh fruits and vegetables is that their skin is not always smooth or glossy. When it comes to meat, try to obtain the ones that have come from free-range animals.
3. Get Rid Of Stressful Activities
Lastly, your immune system will often go haywire if you feel stressed all the time. Granted that it is only possible in the perfect world to be 100% stress-free, you can still do things to minimize the effects of stress on you. E.g., delegate some tasks to your colleagues, let family members help out at home, or stop worrying about others’ opinions.
Do you want to live without an autoimmune disorder attacking you for days? Follow the tips above now. Good luck!
