Episode Summary:

Autoimmune diseases are on the rise, with more than 23 million Americans currently impacted. While great in other ways, modern medicine does not have the tools or capability to help heal chronic illnesses. Luckily there are doctors like Dr. Guillermo Ruiz who focus on finding the root causes of autoimmune diseases so that you can calm your inflammation and stop your immune system from attacking you. Dr. Guillermo has seen where naturopathic medicine, an evolutionary and anti-inflammatory diet, and the power of sleep and stress can take you with the right tools in your hand, and shares those tools with us today.

You may be following the wrong lead with your labs, feel something is wrong despite your doctor assuring you everything is fine, or have already been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Either way, Dr. Guillermo provides insight into what is actually happening inside your body and helps empower you to be your own advocate and life a healthy life.

Learn how to systematically eliminate the factors that are creating your autoimmune response and ways to modulate your immune system to be less aggressive and ultimately reverse the autoimmune disease. Plus, discover how to properly connect the dots between your diet, lifestyle choices, and the way you are feeling.

By breaking down the umbrella of autoimmune diseases and gaining an understanding of how you can get your body working for you, you can create a life that doesn’t involve a handful of pills every day. Dr. Guillermo provides manageable and easy solutions to help your insides heal and get you back to living life again.
