Hey Friends! I’m Susan – the face behind Reversing Autoimmunity. I’m happy you are here!
First, after several years of stress and deteriorating health, Lupus and several other autoimmune diseases showed up on my ANA blood test. I had already been a health and weight loss coach for 18 years but I really didn’t know a lot about Lupus at that point.
Frankly, what I read scared me.
When I got the news I was already half way through my Functional Diagnostic Nutrition certification. So, I was learning a lot about the body from a functional and nutritional biochemistry perspective. As a result, I discovered several reasons why autoimmune diseases occur at all. It was mind-boggling.
Why don’t doctors know this?
Over the course of the next year I employed all of the nutritional and lifestyle strategies I learned and have a virtually nonexistent level of inflammation as a result.
No more debilitating fatigue.
No more debilitating pain in my muscles and my hands.
No more insomnia.
No more anxiety or depression.
Second, once I started searching for information online and hanging out in FB groups dedicated to Lupus, I started feeling like all the info out there about Lupus is old school and conventional. In fact, I would go so far as to say that these groups don’t help you reverse Lupus at all, but encourage you to have a “poor me” attitude about it. I see nothing in any of the groups EMPOWERING you to conquer and REVERSE lupus and your associated autoimmune conditions and symptoms.
And those awful symptoms – fatigue, joint pain, insomnia, just to name a few – you are taught that you either have to be on heavy duty medications to suppress those symptoms or you have to live with them. And probably both…you probably take meds that only half work and actually cause OTHER problems to occur.
I started ReversingAutoimmunity.com to be the first website and FB page that gives Lupus sufferers a place to actually learn strategies that will REVERSE Lupus.
I want to give you a step by step strategy to actually ease your joint and muscle pain, help you get a great night’s sleep and boost your energy throughout the day.
It can be done – I’m proof of that – so no more hanging out in Lupus FB groups that tell you there’s no reversing lupus and that you just have to live with it. You can and you will feel energized and pain free again if you follow the strategies that I teach you.
I can’t wait to help you feel better and re-claim your health!
