Food as Medicine: Autoimmunity and the Role of Food Allergies. In this lecture Dr. Wahls summarizes the information on the epidemic of autoimmune disease in America. She then discusses the concept of the leaky gut and how the foods we eat can either contribute to increasingly severe or a reduction in autoimmune symptoms. She then outlines a program of eating to reduce the fires of inflammation in autoimmune diseases. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will be used to support research into the use of intensive, directed nutrition in the setting of autoimmune disease.
