Hi there,
I have a question for you…I have recently found out I am homozygous for MTHFR C677T as well as having many other mutations, and I’ve had lupus for 22 years. I have been trying to address my gut as I know that’s where a lot of my problems are stemming from. But I don’t understand how I can address my gut when my mutations are so severe. Do I need to first work out my methylation issues before I can even address the gut issues so I detox safely? Just trying to figure out the order in which I start this journey ahead of me of healing. Thanks for your help.

Hi Danika, diet is a great place to start and then we suggest working with a functional medicine practitioner to assist with the supplementation part.

Hello there, I’m a 43 year old with type 1 diabetes since the age of 6 and six months ago I decided to take my health seriously. I mean u name it healthy diet, gut repair, parasite cleanse, whole body/organ cleanse, vitamins and pro biotics although I known there’s more work to be done. My question; is it really possible to reverse and deactivate the autoimmunes destruction of insulin producing beta cells or is it reversal through diet and exercise?
Thanks for your extensive work, caring and understanding.

Hi Cesar, thank you so much for commenting, we really appreciate it!

Research on autoimmune diseases and their reversal is still very new and not completely understood.

Steve and Jordan do believe autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes may be reversible.

I recommend you check out this article Jordan wrote: http://scdlifestyle.com/2012/03/is-celiac-disease-reversible/

This article is about Celiac disease, but the principles apply to all autoimmune conditions.
