Dr. Doni’s Series on Autoimmune Diseases
In the U.S. alone, there are roughly 50 million individuals who have been diagnosed with one of the 80+ known autoimmune conditions. What’s more, there are potentially thousands of other individuals who may be displaying symptoms but have not yet been officially diagnosed. Of those who have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, 75% are women.
In this series, Dr. Doni covers everything you need to know about autoimmune diseases.
There is a direct connection between stress and the development of autoimmune conditions. These links happen at the hormonal level, through cortisol imbalance, in the gut, and also at the genetic and epigenetic level.
Autoimmune disease comes in many forms. There are over 80 different types, with more being discovered all the time. Dr. Doni discusses the epidemic of autoimmunity and how epigenetics play a part in both creating them and healing from them.
