The start of each new year is a great time to make resolutions for healthier life choices. One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2020 is to make sure I eat better. There are a bunch of different reasons to change your diet from the food choices that affect the environment to those that affect your body. This week, I want to focus on the food choices that influence our health, especially for people with diabetes. A healthy diet is particularly important for anyone dealing with an autoimmune disease and anyone who wants to protect themselves from autoimmune disorders. I’m going to highlight a few different autoimmune diet options that you can implement to take care of your body.
In honor of Lupus Awareness Month, I've been highlighting topics centered around Lupus- what causes it, personal Lupus stories, and now the culprit- The Immune System. Lupus is a result of the immune system retaliating against itself, and while it's not the only auto-immune disease out there, I have a personal connection to it. My brother was diagnosed in 2012 and it was that experience that sparked the idea for Revive. His diagnosis changed all of our lives, and not for the worst, but for the better.
