F.I.G.H.T.S.™

Genetics accounts for only about 10% of the risk of developing an autoimmune condition. 1 Inflammatory environmental factors (aka root causes or triggers), which lead to intestinal hyperpermeability (aka a leaky gut), account for 90% of the equation. The lion’s share of the equation are lifestyle factors we can control! I call them F.I.G.H.T.S.™ for Food, Infections, Gut health, Hormone balance, Toxins and Stress. Each category encompasses both the root cause and the solution. Click on any icon for relevant articles.
