On the surface, many of you would say no, because often we think of nutrients as calories or food volume and you’re likely not starving. But the reality is that many most humans are suffering from some kind of nutrient deficiency., It becomes a bigger issue when it is part of the perfect cocktail that triggers an autoimmune disease. In today’s episode, we are talking about 6 key nutrient deficiencies that commonly cause autoimmune troubles, part of the soup that can trigger autoimmune disease. Intro Welcome if this is your first time listening  - I’m Audrey Christie - I’m a functional and integrative nurse nutritionist and energy medicine practitioner. I help women start their very own Autoimmune Revolution so you can stop chasing symptoms and learn how to heal your body from autoimmune disease. So as you may already know, Your autoimmune system is complex, so complex, when you study it, you can really perceive the miracle of the immune system. It almost seems magical. But like anything with complexity, there are many issues that can arise to cause your immune system not to function properly. It’s nothing to live in fear about, but important to note. One of those complexities we hear about often, and I'm even guilty of talking about it often is consuming foods that are inflammatory or that are triggers for inflammation. It could be foods that are triggers for the population in general, for all humans, or specifically for you. The flip side of that coin is being in a nutrient deficiency. There are many nutrient deficiencies out there but there are some really specific ones that happen with or trigger autoimmune disease. Interestingly consuming these inflammatory foods can often also be part of the root cause of a nutrient deficiency. Crazy right? Eating food-like substances and ultra-processed foods even, though they say they're fortified with vitamins and minerals, can trigger a nutrient deficiency. Nutrient Deficiency Mini Case Study I have a client who had just slight thyroid hypofunction, just a little bit it was almost undiagnosable conventionally. Luckily she had a good family practice physician, that recognized she was on heading towards thyroid dysfunction or diagnosable thyroid condition and sent her my direction. In my method of healing autoimmune disease, we start with clearing the muddy waters. We stopped her inflammatory habits so that we could see what symptoms were actually left after all the general inflammation cleared.
