Autoimmune disease occurs when the body attacks itself.
The autoimmune system is intended to protect us against foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses. However, with autoimmune disease, the body mistakes healthy cells for threats and attacks them. This can lead to chronic inflammation and a host of other problems.
Though the exact cause of the autoimmune disease is not known, there is evidence that grain consumption plays a BIG role. Grains contain compounds called lectins, which can trigger an autoimmune response in some people.
In addition, grains are often treated with pesticides and herbicides, which can also contribute to inflammation. For people suffering from autoimmune disease, eliminating grains from the diet is necessary to see improvement. Avoiding grain consumption is a simple way to improve your health and well-being.
And to help your gut and reverse your autoimmune issues.
