Who is Autoimmune Strong for?
How do I know if Autoimmune Strong is right for me?
Have you ever tried a workout regimen, only to find out a few days later that you actually feel worse? Or that it compounds your feelings of exhaustion and fatigue? Or have you been too scared to even think of trying to exercise for fear that it might exacerbate your already intense and unmanageable symptoms? Then Autoimmune Strong is designed for you.
What is an Autoimmune Disorder and how do I know if I have one?
An autoimmune disease occurs when the body's immune system gets confused and begins attacking itself, leading to the deterioration of the tissues. This can take many forms, such as:
- Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
- Celiac Disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Sjorgen's Syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Irritable Bowel Disease
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Addison's Disease
- Grave's Disease
- Reactive Arthritis
- Pernicious Anemia
- Intersticial Cystitis
There are so many Autoimmune conditions, too many to list here, so if you don't see yours listed, Autoimmune Strong will still apply to you. And even if you don't have a diagnosed autoimmune condition but still struggle with intense exhaustion, fatigue, and general body aches, pains, soreness and inflammation, Autoimmune Strong will work for you.
Many people suffer from other conditions, such as Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Chronic Pain & Chronic Fatigue. While these conditions are not specifically Autoimmune, they can be managed with the same fitness & lifestyle modification program like Autoimmune Strong.
What if I don't have an Autoimmune Disease, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue or Chronic Pain- can I still be a member of Autoimmune Strong?
Of course! Autoimmune Strong can be used by anyone- not only the people described above. The pacing and the exercises themselves are specifically designed to reduce risk of an autoimmune attack, but they are also appropriate for anyone who wants to slowly change their body, become strong and agile, and get more energy back into their lives. I have used this same program for all types of people- busy parents, people who sit at desk jobs all day, people who are getting older- and have had great success.
We all have immune systems, and we want to make sure they are as strong as they can be. We can all become Autoimmune Strong.
