Autoimmune Diseases such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Celiac Disease and many more. Some people are more likely to get an autoimmune disease than others because of a condition known as “Leaky Gut”. In order to understand autoimmune, you must first understand it’s origins. Why does the all knowing immune system suddenly misfire?
Stress is a huge factor in the early stages of disease. Stress causes us to create more acids in the body than necessary. These acids mixed with acid forming foods and genetically created substances start eroding the gut lining. This is called Intestinal Permeability and usually affects the small intestinal wall. Women get autoimmune diseases at a rate of about 2 to 1 compared to men because they have a tendency to internalize stress.
