With over 200 autoimmune conditions, and an estimated 23.5 million Americans suffering (according to the National Institutes of Health), healing comes from many different forms for each and every one of us. Most of us follow a specific diet to minimize symptoms and keep our health as steady as possible, but these restricted diets often mean our favorites are off-limits.
