Redefining Autoimmunity and MS

Autoimmunity is an oxymoron!

If we break down the roots of the word, “auto,” meaning “self,” and “immunity,” meaning “allergic,” the word means “allergic to self.”

However, evolution says “nay, nay! Not possible!”

In this episode of “Inspired Living with Autoimmunity” with health coach Julie Michelson, we discuss why it is time to redefine autoimmunity and how a diagnosis should be a wake-up call to make big changes in our lives.


Multiple Sclerosis 101 and Lifestyle Tips for Reducing Inflammation

Listen in as host Rachel Smith of Natural Health Rising and I dig into the nitty gritty of what is multiple sclerosis, the connection to inflammation, and steps that you can take immediately to help yourself fare better with this disease.

We talk about how inflammation is the common root of most, if not all, symptoms, so whether you’ve been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or with another autoimmune condition, or have been suffering from chronic symptoms without an official diagnosis, you’ll want to tune it to this interview.

If you have a family member, friend, or colleague who is chronically suffering, please pass this along to them and help them understand how much control they have over their own health!

Memorable Quotes:

“I just want to make sure that listeners understand that they don’t have to feel pain in order to presume or question whether or not there’s an inflammatory process. There are these more subtle indicators.” (9:18, Dr. Fox)

“What I’m talking about is not a pharmaceutical bandaid. This is not some sort of artificial inducement that will make it seem like you’re okay. But you’re not really okay underneath. We’re talking about a holistic view of the body to actually create healing from the inside out so that you are in better shape to be a parent.” (10:55, Elizabeth)

“You just have to read the labels, even from things that you have long assumed safe.” (17:17, Elizabeth)

“You don’t even ever have to have eaten something for you to be reactive to it.” (26:22, Elizabeth)

“Your eggs are only as good as your health.” (32:53, Dr. Fox)
