Lifestyle Changes to Help Your Autoimmune Condition

There are many lifestyle changes we can make in our every day lives to help autoimmune conditions. First, ask yourself if you believed your autoimmune condition to “run in your family”? Think again. Science is now showing us that that genetic predisposition accounts for only 30% of all autoimmune conditions, while the remaining 70% are a result of environmental factors.  Keep an eye out for these environmental factors: Avoid exposure to toxic chemicals like mercury and lead Mold is common in many of our households, schools, and workplaces. The products you use for your daily skincare and makeup routine might contain parabens. Be careful when you shop at the grocery store to avoid foods with pesticides.

I get it, instilling healthy eating habits in kids can be challenging. Kids’ taste buds are programmed from a young age by the food industry to crave chemical, preservative and additive-filled foods while we’re over here trying to get them to like broccoli!  But childhood is the prime time for laying the foundations of positive and life-long healthy eating habits. We know that our immune system relies on strong metabolic health, which is determined by the foods we eat!

Oftentimes, we find that people who have other underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, will experience certain symptoms when making the jump from daily intermittent fasting to longer fasts, like 24+ hour fasts.  My goal is to help you achieve optimal results from fasting, in a safe manner. The most important thing to know when fasting is, when

Last week I put together a 3 week guide to starting fasting. Part of that process involves testing your blood sugar and ketones during a fast. In fact, I believe that everyone should throw out their scales. Focus on what your blood sugar and ketones are telling you about your body’s reaction to the food you’re eating. First, you’ll want to get a blood reader. My favorite one is the Keto Mojo. This involves an easy finger prick and is more affordable than other devices. When to check your blood sugar and ketone levels You'll be taking two sets of readings. The first set of blood sugar and ketone readings will be taken as soon as you wake up and
