What do we mean when we talk about immunity and autoimmune diseases, and can a specific diet be used as a panacea treatment? That’s what we’re talking about this week, touching on the Autoimmune Protocol, the difference between autoimmune diseases and chronic diseases, and more.
- Why there is too much oversimplification online about treating autoimmune diseases
- The origins of the Autoimmune Protocol Diet and the big problems of it
- The gray area of treating autoimmune diseases with diet only
