Dr Brooke Show #314 Root Causes, Lifestyle Medicine & Myths About Autoimmunity
Autoimmune is a big topic and women often fall into two categories: not understanding what they can do to impact their immune system and autoimmune issue OR they’ve been promised a cure or have been lured by a “root cause” and end up frustrated and still feeling badly.
Three States of Autoimmunity
In this episode I talk about signs of autoimmunity that might surprise you, the three stages of autoimmunity (hint: early detection and intervention is ideal!), why there are almost always multiple root causes as well as the biggies in terms of diet, lifestyle and exercise when it comes to living with autoimmunity – and how to use them to feel better!
This episode is followed up by a Q&A episode and my top ten reasons why your autoimmunity may not be improving despite your efforts – so tune in to the next episode as well!

One of THE BEST tools for your health is a CGM, continuous glucose monitor. It helps you effortlessly understand what foods work for you and even how stress and sleep impact your blood sugar allowing you to make changes in real time. A CGM also allows you to see your glucose variability (the difference between your highs and lows) which may be as important as how high your blood sugar runs. It’s an amazing tool and Nutrisense has my favorite interface with their app and dietitian support! It’s easy and straightforward and with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout you can save 30% off a subscription. Click here and be well on your way to better health.
