Nutrition for autoimmune disease

A poor ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids can increase your risk of heart disease, cancer, immune and inflammatory disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis. This could explain why individuals with autoimmune conditions in the rheumatoid family such as lupus, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, arthritis and multiple sclerosis fare better on a vegetarian diet as it provides a higher ratio of omega-3 fatty acids which aid in improving joint pain.

Scleroderma and Polymyostits

Up until the Spring of 1988, I considered myself phenomenally healthy. I ran three to five miles daily, bench pressed half my weight, lead an active social life and was budding into my career as a dietitian. My health, however, took a turn for the worst at age 27 when “strange things” started happening to my body. I remember going from “good” to “bad” in a matter of 24 hours.

Recovered or Recovering?

Recovered or Recovering…?

Are you recovered or recovering? Eating disorder practitioners stand divided between these two camps. Is one label more accurate than the other? The answer is that it is a matter of perception and core beliefs. This blog post is simply meant for a healthy dialogue vs who is write and who is wrong.

Healing Through Gratitude

Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and social relationships. Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self-acceptance.

Yoga Therapy for a Client with Binge Eating Disorder
