How to Reduce Symptoms of Auto Immune Illness

If you are suffering from one of many auto immune illnesses, there are a few things that you can do at home to ‘calm down’ your symptoms.  

Say Goodbye to Gluten

Firstly, consider going ‘gluten free’. Gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and other grains, has been linked recently to an increased risk of auto immune illness. Aside from just avoiding breads and pastas, cross-contamination with gluten is equally as serious.

Additionally, other grains like corn, oats, rice and quinoa can be equally as damaging to the auto immune system. These grains contain a protein that is very similar to gluten.

Ditch the Dairy

Secondly, consider going ‘dairy free’. Casein, the main protein in dairy products, can be a trigger for inflammation of the body. Removing dairy products from your diet can be a safe way to control your auto immune illness thus controlling your pain.
