Autoimmune Generation

Below are a couple of pictures of me with my beautiful mum – Maria Grace. They were taken over a year ago, at a time when she was much more the vibrantly healthy person I remember. My mum has been struggling with an undiagnosed autoimmune condition for over 15 years now. Although she has some good days, she is progressively getting worse. The concerning thing is – I have also felt lots of things in my own body, which remind me of her symptoms.

“Prevention is better than cure” yes, but I believe in the body’s ability to heal itself. Do you? I also believe that through our pains, sufferings, confusion or other negative life experiences may come beauty, healing, joy, and much knowledge worth having!

I haven’t worked out all the answers, even for myself; but I do know that all manner of fruits, vegetables, alkaline water, superfoods, light proteins, greens (yes they are vegatables, but I’ve doubled up as I feel we all should be consuming way more of them!), sunlight, fresh air, exercise, rest, and trust create an environment for the body and mind which has proven to promote healing and wellness.

Something I haven’t shared, even on my own personal blog is that all I know and do on a day-to-day basis is because of many years of seeking, experimenting, reading and believing.

Mum and Me

We are living in an Autoimmune Generation. But whatever you’re going through today, whatever your parents have suffered before you – please don’t give up! Don’t despair.

Mothers Day

Instead, go for a brisk walk… make a green juice! Start filling up your day with all the vibrancy from nature available to you. Read all you can, and fight with all your being. Lets create a revolution that turns Autoimmune conditions up-side-down!

    Hello Abigail,
    I obviously hope that your mom will go much better in the coming days, and I’m sure if it has the same mentality as you, the same way of life, everything will be better soon.
    We are young (and honestly, I never think about) but your article reminds us that everyone can catch a serious disease, whatever the age and the lifestyle you have.
    It’s probably easier to say when you’re healthy, but as you say, “not to despair”, the intellectual capacity to cope with the disease (the ability to remain positive, smiling, optimistic …..) is very important, I think !

    The best for your mom Abigail.

    Maybe it’s Lyme disease undetected. Many times it hides in the spinal cord and can be diagnosed as lupus.
