Do you know how food works to counter autoimmune disease? Though autoimmune disease is often not prescribed treatments, you can fight back with the right kinds of food you eat. Here, we will discuss food choices you can eat to lessen the severity of your disease in a safe, healthy and tummy-friendly food groups available almost everywhere-not to mention cheap as much as possible.
Autoimmune disease is a mess. Having autoimmune disease that attacks your own body affects how you perform daily activities at home, school or work which can be very frustrating; depressing at worst especially that most of autoimmune diseases aren’t easy to diagnose so, having a targeted response to counter it isn’t always certain. Most alarmingly, statistics show that most autoimmune disease cases happen to women (about 78%). I can’t imagine how these women, especially mothers who have lots of works to do at home and in child-rearing carry this burden along with all the predicaments in their lives. Surely, the love and support from their loved ones can play a great relief from their agony as powerful as how medications and treatment can help reduce one’s burdensome illness.
It starts from the gut. The good thing about food is that we can rely on what we eat. With the right kinds of food, amount and preparation, having to deal with these kinds of diseases can be rewarding. Diseases start from infections and bacteria. The immune system works mostly in fighting infections and bacteria that cause most diseases. What becomes dangerous when your immune system functions become out of balance is that it will attack the body including healthy tissues and organs. Everything starts from the gut. What you take in is absorbed in the blood that circulates in your body. Eating the right kinds of food sustains your body correctly. However, when you eat excessively unhealthy foods such as saturated fat, it tears down the healthy bacteria in your gut causing bad bacteria to overcome it resulting in inflammation, tissue damage and increased immune response that leads to attacking itself, which affects your whole body systems.
What can you do about it? Sustain your body with the right amount of healthy probiotics-good bacteria that are mostly found from fermented foods, such as kimchi and sauerkraut, unsweetened yogurts, coconut kefir, and probiotic supplements. These good bacteria need to be fed too. Healthy prebiotic foods that help probiotics to increase are fibers found in fruits, vegetables, chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, dandelion greens, garlic, leek, onion, asparagus, jicama, apple, flaxseed, and burdock root in particular.
Rely on Nature. It is important to load your body with nutrients from vegetables especially leafy greens, mushrooms, squash, turnips and rutabaga, onions, and spices such as ginger, cayenne pepper, cloves, garlic, cinnamon, and turmeric. Nature has its own way to supply and nourish human beings. All you have to do is look around, the plants nature has to offer is so potent not only in supplying what your body needs but also in healing many diseases in a natural, not-so-costly method. Entrust yourself to heal through nature's foods.
The gift of food. Food, aside from being the human body’s nourishment is also a source of comfort. Along with the rise of modernity, great recipes are being introduced to satiate what people crave each day.Let me give you the best food recipes you can do with the right food choices I mentioned above to make healthy eating as enjoyable as any food modern cooking can offer.
