The Optimal Diet for Autoimmune Diseases
Ulcerative colitis is one of the most common autoimmune conditions of our time. That said, we are seeing an incredible uptick in autoimmune conditions in general. Basically, these are conditions like type 1 diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and multiple sclerosis that are characterized by an immune system that, for whatever reason, suddenly attacks the host. These diseases are now affecting more than 50 million Americans. And that’s just the number who have been diagnosed.
In this podcast, I have the pleasure of spending time with Danielle Walker. Her name may well be familiar to many of you as she is the New York Times bestselling author of the Against All Grain series of cookbooks.
Her cookbooks are wonderful, and today we get the backstory. You will have the opportunity to share in what motivated Danielle to dedicate herself to creating ways for people to eat in response to the challenges of autoimmune conditions.
We discuss her new book, Food Saved Me. And when you read the book, you’ll realize that it quite literally did. In the face of advancing disease and profound reactions to medications, Danielle was able to gain control of her ulcerative colitis and regain her general health as well.
Please enjoy the podcast, and I certainly recommend the book, especially as it serves as a commentary on how our modern, industrialized foods are threatening our health.
