Ayurveda considers the root cause of autoimmunity to be improper metabolism which may be triggered by poor diet, digestion, and circulation. Poor diet and weak digestion cause a buildup of toxins that if not properly eliminated, due to poor circulation, create a vicious cycle of inflammation and pain. Ayurveda has natural solutions that reduce painful symptoms and, in many cases, can reverse autoimmune conditions.
Come and discover:
– The exact way poor digestion affects all forms of autoimmunity
– Foods that help digestion, reduce inflammation, and foods to avoid
