Biohackers Amy Lamotte and Leslie Kenny teach us how to hack autoimmune disease with simple and effective techniques that anyone can follow.
Their tips come from their own battles with autoimmune disease as well as the many people they have been coaching in their clinical nutrition and health coaching practices.
Leslie was misdiagnosed at 34 with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis requiring thousands of dollars to be spent on medication, until she hacked her autoimmune disease treating it and reversing it herself through diet, supplementation and testing. Now at age 55 she lives free of signs and symptoms of autoimmunity.
Amy started having the signs of autoimmune disease at 18, but was continually turned down by doctors who couldn't or wouldn't help until she was diagnosed 16 years later of Hashimoto's Disease. Today Amy lives free of the symptoms of her autoimmune disease through diet, lifestyle and supplementation.
Both Amy and Leslie agree that gut health is fundamental for autoimmune diseases.
A few books that were influential to Amy's and Leslie's journey to fight their gut issues were Barry Sears' The Anti-Inflammation Zone and The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain.
