8 Myths About Autoimmune Diseases

In an effort to educate, I think its important to address the myths that float around. Myths, that many take to heart, and many too preach them as if they were solid fact when in reality, its far from the truth. Do you know someone who believes something.. and regardless of how hard you try to convince them otherwise, they just don't want to believe or understand, or worse, they are in complete denial? I accept that these people want to believe what they want to believe- but you and I know, that deep down, they are mistaken and unfortunately, we cannot change their minds. In addition, thats not our job. If someone wants to believe they are doomed because of alopecia, or that there is no cure, than I guess, that's the way they have chosen to live. But in those thoughts and myths, they have undoubtedly limited themselves and robbed themselves from the possibility of healing. Let's get the facts right, and let's debunk these myths once and for all.


Myth #1 Autoimmune Disorders cannot be reversed


False. I have reversed my alopecia. And many other clients have, see success stories. In addition, I know many people who have reversed their Hashimoto's, their MS (multiple sclerosis ) and RA (rheumatoid arthritis) Many times its not through conventional medicine, and most times it is through diet and lifestyle. Taking pills is easy, but changing your life takes commitment- commitment to health. So don't believe you can't when really, its you won't and you don't want to! Own up to the responsibility.


Myth #2. Your symptoms won't disappear without harsh medications


False. Yes they can disappear without medications. Many times its our bodies that are yelling at us and we are failing to listen, to take notice and take charge for change. I teach you how to do this and what to look for during my two month signature program.


Myth #3 When you treat an autoimmune disorder with medications, the side effects are no big deal


False. Ouch this is a big one. I feel for people with autoimmune diseases, because I had one. And also because it targets 80% of women... women who are our mothers, sisters, daughters and aunts and so on. There are side effects, and the reason why I went natural, organic and holistic, is because I didn't want any side effects with my future children. Yes I think about that. And if you already had your kids- lucky you, but for those you haven't don't mess up your body before you've had the choice and option to have healthy children. This is why I wanted to support my body and its immune system versus getting the shots, taking pills that might give me kidney failure and liver failure. In men, hairloss meds cause impotence. Truth be told, I have a friend who married her husband who was on such meds for over 10 years due to his hairloss. And now... they can't have kids and their intimate life isn't where it should be for newlyweds. Let's avoid future issues by going natural and treating alopecia at the root cause versus holding our breaths with meds that do have implications for future health and no guarantees for efficacy or even working. I opted out and happy I did!


Myth #4 Improving digestion and gut health have no effect on the progression of an autoimmune disorder


Wrong again. I go through this thoroughly in my books and courses and programs. Gut health is extremely important for overall health and strong immunity.
