What I tell people with an Autoimmune Condition at the beginning of their return to health
I think the most important thing I would say is that you are not broken.
Sometimes you are a canary in a coal mine. The idea behind this concept is that the coal mine is our environment and the toxins we are exposed today are very different than what our bodies are meant to process. These “canaries” are the first ones to feel the impact. There’s nothing wrong with them – they are actually incredibly in-tune with their environments.
People with Autoimmune Condition can cultivate that awareness and sensitivity, and choose to find powerful appreciation for themselves and their sensitive bodies to live happily within reasonable and healthy boundaries.
