Many people who have one or more autoimmune diseases are told by their doctors that diet doesn't affect the disease. However, yes, it does! these are the words by doctors Sofie and Erik Hexeberg, who specialize in treating these diseases with the help of dietary changes. You can get rid of chronic inflammation and improve your everyday life with less medication – and maybe even get completely healthy – by eating anti-inflammatory foods. The authors present a new and groundbreaking look at autoimmune diseases and their possible causes and tell the stories of patients who have improved their lives by changing their diets. In the back of the book, you'll find some start-up recipes that will help you change your diet. The following illnesses have their own chapters in the book: Crohn's disease, Celiac disease, Type 1 diabetes, Graves' disease, hyperthyroidism Hashimoto's disease, hypothyroidism Irritable bowel syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, Multiple sclerosis (MS), Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and Psoriasis Ulcerative colitis.
