When you experience autoimmune conditions, it means that somewhere along the way your immune system went rogue and began attacking your own tissues, organs and cells. This usually happens when there has been long term chronic inflammation.
“Inflammation is a normal part of our physiology but it should not become unbalanced.”
Inflammation is a normal part of our physiology but it should not become unbalanced. When we see severe inflammation in the body, that has been there for a long time, this is when autoimmunity may set in. The list of autoimmune diseases is long but some of the most common ones are arthritis, eczema, asthma, crohn's disease, hashimoto's/graves, type 1 diabetes, and celiac.
“Our immune system’s job is to fight against invaders.”
Our immune system’s job is to fight against invaders, but in this modern day toxic world our immune system is getting confused between our own cells and those cells that we should be fighting against. This means that the root of the autoimmune condition is within your immune system, in which case, nurturing a healthy immune system is incredibly important.
Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. And did you know that the bioavailability of turmeric is increased when you pair it with certain foods?
Turmeric is used to support symptoms of arthritis, asthma, bloating, digestive issues, liver problems, heartburn and headaches. It has also been found to support fat metabolism and weight management.
So how do you get the most out of this wonder food? You pair it with healthy fats such as coconut oil (and black pepper, although we have not used pepper in this turmeric nut slice recipe!)
