Lifestyle and Diet for Autoimmune Diseases
What is an autoimmune disease?
Autoimmune Diseases are conditions caused by an immune response against the body’s tissues. They develop when the immune system destroys normal body tissues. Sometimes the immune system will fail to recognize one or more of the body’s normal materials as what they are: normal. The body then creates autoantibodies – (antibodies attack its own cells, tissues, and organs). This causes inflammation and damage and leads to many different Autoimmune Disorders.
What Causes Autoimmune Diseases?
The cause of an autoimmune disease is still unknown. Some theories scientist have stated Autoimmune Diseases are hereditary, environmental irritants, chemical irritants, or can stem from bacterial or viral sickness.
Although unknown how it is caused, there are many ways to test for the disease. The sooner you catch the disease, the easier it is to treat. Always pay attention to your symptoms and the length of time you are experiencing them. The more information you can provide a physician the better.

Lifestyle Tips for Autoimmune Diseases
The best way you can help yourself when suffering from an Autoimmune Disease is by keeping your stress levels as low as possible via meditation, gymnastics, exercise, or tai chi. Also, you should focus on healing your gut where the most of our immune system resides. Start by knowing the level of your gut permeability, as well as the level of antibodies in order to gauge the process of healing.
Avoid gluten at all costs, but bear in mind that some gluten-free foods like corn and rice can also flare up the immune system. Detoxification should be your regular practice combined with consumption of green tea and turmeric. Sulphur-rich vegetables like broccoli, onions, and cabbage aid in methylation, which is a biochemical process which produces glutathione – an important antioxidant capable of preventing damage to vital cellular components inside the body.
The Amazing Power of the AMP Molecule
One of the prominent active components in Aloe vera is a molecule called the Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharide (AMP) molecule. This is the molecule that fuels the powerhouse plant and the key ingredient in all of our products. AMP is organic, non-toxic, and all-natural. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and anti-bacterial, offering support to boost your immune system. A.M.P.
