Autoimmune Resources

There are over 100 autoimmune (AI) conditions and the incidence is growing every year. More and more of us find ourselves with one or more auto-immune conditions. My advice to anyone who receives an AI diagnosis is to learn as much about the condition, or conditions, as possible. Your best weapon against autoimmune conditions is YOU. Your medical team are certainly extremely important but you are the front-line soldier in this war. Your medical team can’t do your exercise for you, can’t remove stress from your life or make sure you take your medications on time, sleep enough or eat properly. That, my friends, is YOU – the front-line soldier.

The following is a list of resources I found useful in my own journey, together with other resources for other AI conditions.
