Autoimmune Self-Care

Complementary Strategies for Managing Autoimmune Diseases

Living with an autoimmune disorder like Sjogren’s, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and the long list of others isn’t for the faint of heart.

With any autoimmune disorder, taking good care of your body and mind sets your body up for success with your medical treatment plan.

When I say “self-care”, I’m talking about the things you do to move yourself toward the most balanced state possible so your medications don’t have to work as hard.

When self-care takes a back seat to everything else, it can lead to a “flare” – when symptoms kick up a level or more.

This website and related materials are meant to provide you with tools you can use, starting today.

From identifying what’s causing your symptom flare, to determining the right foods to eat, to calming the stress response that’s so often tied to autoimmunity, start setting yourself up for success. Take a look around and grab the ideas and tools that you feel ready and able to start implementing right now!
