Today I'm chatting with Justin Janoska, clinician and founder of The Autoimmune Revolution - an emerging company that guides women in their healing journey to reverse their autoimmune disease and reproductive disorder naturally with specific attention on Hashimoto’s, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, IBD, PCOS, and Endometriosis. He holds a Master’s in Human Nutrition from The University of Bridgeport but has a very different and unique approach that emphasizes mind-body medicine. Naturally, he continues to advocate for women who struggle with eating disorders, disordered eating, and childhood trauma. Justin is also the author of The Flexible Dieting Disaster.
In this episode, Justin shares what got him interested in helping women heal from autoimmune disease, how trauma can be the root cause of chronic illness, and how to work through emotional traumas to heal. He discusses diet and lifestyle changes to make for anyone struggling with PCOS and Hashimoto's, why the flexible dieting culture has made so many women sick, the effects of social media on mental and physical health, problems with social media influencers, and much more.
