Autoimmune diseases are becoming more and more common. There is a lot that is still unknown about autoimmunity today, but it is though that your immune system has started to attach your own body. Your immune system functions to protect your body by responding to invaders such as viruses or bacteria. Under normal conditions, an immune response takes care of the invaders, but in autoimmune conditions the immune cells start attacking your own tissues.
Have you been told there isn’t anything you can do for your autoimmune condition?
Many autoimmune experts believe that while there is still much to be discovered, autoimmune diseases tend to have 3 things in common when they present themselves.
I have dealt with multiple autoimmune diseases in the past year (celiac and thyroid). I was overwhelmed and discouraged, but Leslie was such an encouragement and helped me make positive changes to my lifestyle. Her suggestions for healthier (and gluten free) breakfasts and lunches have impacted my daily energy levels and completely eliminated my need to "snack." I no longer feel as discouraged about being a celiac because she inspired me to try new foods that are delicious, healthy and gluten free. Leslie is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable, and she provided the positive push I needed to start getting healthier and helping my body to heal after dealing with debilitating autoimmune issues.
I've been working with Leslie for almost four years now. She's always been incredibly kind, patient, and motivating. I began with training and about a year ago started nutrition sessions with her as well. I have an autoimmune condition that impacts my skin and joints. With Leslie, I was able to take a food sensitivity test and remove those foods from my diet. I've seen a drastic improvement in my digestion, skin, and overall well being over the past year. Leslie genuinely listens and cares about your experiences and symptoms. She works with you to come up with solutions and steps that work for your lifestyle and abilities. She's always had a more holistic approach and I highly recommended working with her!!
