Food Sensitivities, Inflammation, and the Autoimmune Connection

A delightful chat with Dr. Elizabeth Yarnell about her mission and methods to improve lives simply by changing the way we think about food and anti-inflammatory diets. As a board-certified naturopath and designer of customized anti-inflammatory diets, Dr. Yarnell runs a nationwide food therapy clinic to help people discover the specific foods that not only taste good but make them feel good, too.

In this episode Dr. Yarnell shares some of what she discovered, for example:

~ Causes of inflammation and how to minimize it
~ What are food sensitivities and how you can become allergic to food
~ The gold-standard test for finding food allergies
~ The connection between diet and autoimmune symptoms
~ Other things that can cause inflammation besides food
~ What is ‘Dutch Oven Cooking, plus so much more…
