Getting Started With The Autoimmune Paleo Diet

There are now around 100 Autoimmune disorders, depending on which research you read.  Autoimmune disorders include hundreds of medical conditions that are due to the body’s own immune system attacking its own organs. For example, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an attack on the thyroid gland, Crohn’s disease attacks the gastrointestinal system, multiple sclerosis attacks the nervous system, and lupus primarily attacks the kidneys. One of the most frustrating things about autoimmune conditions is that there is no curative treatment for them.
