Lately, it seems that autoimmune disorders have eclipsed heart disease, cancer, and diabetes in America today. In this enlightening podcast, learn why Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Crohn’s Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis — and autoimmune related diseases like Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome — are on the rise. Ann Louise and celebrated naturopath Dr. Michael Karlfeldt unpack the roles of mold, chemicals, heavy metals, viruses, diet, stress, and lifestyle – and how they contribute to the development of autoimmune disease. They also discuss how the modern lifestyle and environmental contamination have created a “perfect storm” — the ripest possible conditions for today’s autoimmune epidemic to take hold.

Karlfeldt currently runs one of the largest Integrative medicine centers in the Pacific Northwest, The Karlfeldt Center, in Boise, Idaho.
