Autoimmunity: One of the most common things is to leave the doctor’s office with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease and no nutritional or lifestyle changing insight. Autoimmune diseases are related to inflammation. Keeping the inflammation down is the goal with autoimmune attacks. The foods you eat make a huge difference in the frequency and severity of flare-ups. Steady dietary changes can help you reach your optimal self.

Estrogen & Autoimmunity
- The greatest association with autoimmune diseases is the female gender
- 17‐beta estradiol seems to play a role in activating T cells in autoimmune disease
- T cells have ER‐alpha receptors that are activated by 17‐beta estradiol resulting in the production of inflammatory cytokines
- Blocking ER‐alpha receptors may have a beneficial effect on autoimmune activation
