Contrary to popular belief, most autoimmune conditions are a symptom of our Western lifestyle. As such, they can be treated or largely prevented with natural lifestyle changes.

The main problem with how we’ve been taught to live in the UK is that we consume a nutritionally sparse diet. Fast food, chips, crisps, sandwiches, snacks all “fill you up.”

That’s a major issue; we’ve been taught to eat to fill ourselves up, when, in reality, to live a full and healthy life we should be focused on eating a nutritionally dense diet.

Other factors such as our sedentary lifestyles play a role in the development of autoimmune conditions. Most people in the West spend way too much time on a chair or sofa.

The thing is, it’s not our fault.

We’ve been conditioned to sit down most of the time, plus nutrition has never been high up on the educational agenda. Not to mention, we party and celebrate with foods and beverages that are quite frankly toxic.

That being said, some people are genetically predisposed to developing an autoimmune disease. This commonly comes from the exact same issue but it’s handed down from generation to generation.

We need to learn to live in a more healthy way to live our best life. Thankfully, we have high-quality supplements at hand to get our system to begin to find balance and fight back against all of the damage.

In this article, we’ll go over the benefits of both vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids for warding off autoimmune conditions.
