Facts-and-myths-about-autoimmune-diseaseAmy Meyers, M.D. has an excellent new book out, The Autoimmune Solution in which she discusses the facts and myths about autoimmune disease. Seattle Hypnosis With Roger Moore is one of the leading experts in Medical Hypnosis and specializes in teaching hypnosis skills to people living with autoimmune disease.

Over 90 percent of the population suffers from inflammation or an autoimmune disorder. Until now, conventional medicine has said there is no cure. Minor irritations like rashes and runny noses are ignored, while chronic and debilitating diseases like Crohn’s and rheumatoid arthritis are handled with a cocktail of toxic treatments that fail to address their root cause. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In The Autoimmune Solution, Dr. Amy Myers, a renowned leader in functional medicine, offers her medically proven approach to prevent a wide range of inflammatory-related symptoms and diseases, including allergies, obesity, asthma, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, IBS, chronic headaches, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

8 Myths & Facts About Autoimmune Disease

1. Autoimmune disorders can’t be reversed.
Through diet, intestinal healing, and reducing your toxic burden, you can instruct your problematic genes to turn off again, thereby restoring your beleaguered immune system to health.

2. Your symptoms won’t disappear without harsh medications.
It’s sad to say, but most conventional practitioners dismiss the importance of nutrition as a major factor in our health. The very concept of a toxic burden is foreign to most health care professionals, let alone the power of removing that burden from those who suffer from autoimmune disorders.

3. When you treat an autoimmune disorder with medications, the side effects are no big deal.
In fact, the side effects of the drugs most often used to treat autoimmune disorders are common, frequent and disruptive.

4. Improving digestion and gut health have no effect on the progression of autoimmune disorders.
Since the majority of your immune system is located there, it is essential to focus on the digestive system and heal your leaky gut if you want to reverse your autoimmune symptoms. In order to be healthy, you must have a healthy gut.

5. Going gluten-free won’t make any difference to your autoimmune disorder.
The idea that gluten doesn’t make any real difference to your condition is one of the most dangerous myths about autoimmune disorders. Taking apart that myth might be the single greatest service I can do for you.

6. Having an autoimmune disorder dooms you to a poor quality of life.
Although conventional medicine would counsel you to accept a poor quality of life as the likely outcome of your condition, I’m here to tell you that it is not at all inevitable.

7. When it comes to autoimmune disorders, only your genes matter, not the environment.
So don’t become a prisoner of your genetics. Whatever genes you were born with, you have the power to manage your body’s response to autoimmunity — and the power to create a happy, healthy life.

8. Your immune system is what it is, and there’s nothing you can do to support it.
Conventional practitioners treat autoimmune conditions by medicating the symptoms and suppressing the immune system. The Myers Way treats autoimmune conditions by strengthening the immune system, which includes cleansing and supporting the gut.
