What if you could partner with, and heal, your autoimmune condition – instead of fighting an endless uphill battle?

Whether you’ve been diagnosed recently with an autoimmune disease (AID), or have been struggling with one for a while, chances are you’re:

  • Confused, overwhelmed, or uncertain about what to do
  • Frustrated with the lack of support
  • Concerned about the side effects and risks of the medications you’re taking
  • Looking (and looking) for alternatives to treat your condition more naturally

…Chances also are that your doctor doesn’t know how to do that—and believes drugs are your only option.

What’s wrong with the conventional approach?

Not only are conventional treatments ineffective; they’re often dangerous.

The most common—powerful steroids and biologic drugs—simply suppress the symptoms without addressing the underlying causes, all of which carry serious side effects and risks.

What this translates to:

A lifetime of multiple medications. Endless hours in the doctor’s office. Not to mention—helplessness, frustration, and despair.

If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.

In the past 10 years, some autoimmune diseases have increased by as much as 300 percent

What if you…

  • Had access to resources and information for addressing the root causes that drive these debilitating conditions
  • Had a clearer understanding of the Functional Medicine approach to autoimmunity
  • Could use food to calm your immune response
  • Knew the right supplements and herbs to take for immune balancing
  • Found out what tests to get, why, and how (even if your doctor won’t order them)
  • Could partner with your condition, instead of feeling locked in a never-ending battle with it

… Felt empowered to take charge of your own health and recover your vitality?

Things wouldn’t just feel different; they’d be different.

Chris Kresser

You don’t need more information. You need better information.

Specific and affordable support for sufferers of autoimmune diseases is hard to come by: At one end of the spectrum, you have endless info: free blogs, podcasts, and downloads which are inconsistent at best. On the other, you have working one-on-one with a Functional Medicine practitioner, which is a fantastic option, but sadly out of reach financially for most people suffering with autoimmune disease.

Finally, a resource for healing autoimmunity that’s designed for you—not just for the well-heeled.

Chris created this workshop to close the gap and offer more autoimmune-specific support including the approach, resources, and tools he has used in his practice treating patients with autoimmune conditions, in an accessible format—for a fraction of the cost.

Here’s a more in-depth look at what will be covered in each of the 7 weekly modules:

Week #1

The Functional Medicine approach to healing autoimmunity

You may have been told that autoimmune disease is a “life sentence” and “incurable disease.” Chris disagrees. In week 1, we kick things off with a deep dive into the Functional Medicine approach to autoimmunity and discuss:

  • How to avoid taking immunosuppressive medications for life
  • The 6 root causes of autoimmunity and the 4 pillars of treating autoimmune disease with Functional Medicine
  • Inspiring stories of people like you who’ve been able to reduce or even stop their medication by following the process we’ll teach you in this workshop
Week #2

How to use diet and food to calm your immune system

New research suggests that food is one of the most powerful treatments for autoimmune disease, and can create a dramatic shift in your day-to-day health. In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to use diet to balance and regulate your immune system and put the brakes on inflammation
  • The most effective dietary approaches for autoimmunity
  • How to choose the right diet for you, and provide practical resources and tools (like recipes and meal plans) to help you get started
Week #3

The gut-immune connection

Research has shown that poor gut health is a factor in virtually all autoimmune conditions—and that improving gut health can help to prevent, and even reverse, them. In this module, you’ll gain a clearer understanding of:

  • The connection between the gut and immune system
  • The crucial role of the gut barrier and microbiome
  • 5 key strategies for improving your gut health and calming your immune system
  • Probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and gut health superfoods like bone broth, fermented foods, and more
Week #4

Supplements and herbs for immune balancing

Supplements and herbs can be incredibly powerful in treating autoimmunity, and much safer than drugs—when used correctly. In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The safest and most effective supplements and herbs for immune-balancing
  • Why false and misleading claims are more common than you think (and what to look out for)
  • Which supplements he uses in his practice with patients
  • Detailed information on which brands are the most reliable, what dose to take, and how to get the most out of them
Week #5

Cultivating resilience and vibrant health

Critical to healing autoimmunity is cultivating a more resilient immune system and vibrant overall health. While diet and supplements are critical, nourishing our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls is also essential. We’ll discuss:

  • Strategies for sleep, physical activity, and stress management that are specifically designed for people with autoimmune conditions
  • Adjunctive therapies like sauna, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF), and more, and what effect they’ve had on autoimmunity
Week #6

Mindset and lifestyle—from surviving to thriving

New research on neuroplasticity which suggests that by changing our brain—the way we think, sense, and feel—we can change our health. In Week 6, Chris will dive even deeper into mindset and lifestyle and show you that:

  • You are fundamentally healthy and well, and more than your “dis-ease”
  • That pleasure and joy are as essential as diet and supplements
  • How to use your condition as an opportunity for growth and change
  • Mindfulness and meditation and other simple, yet powerful, strategies can rewire your brain and take you from simply surviving to thriving and flourishing
Week #7

Functional Medicine testing and treatment for autoimmunity

We bring the workshop to a close this week with an overview of Functional Medicine testing and treatment for autoimmune disease, including:

  • Which tests you should consider, and how to talk to your doctor about them
  • How to find a Functional Medicine practitioner and/or Functional Health Coach to work with
  • The role of low-dose naltrexone (LDN) in a Functional Medicine treatment plan

See what people are saying about Chris’s clinical expertise and experience:

Catherine Meyers
"Chris changed my life. I was desperate. He asked questions I didn’t think were related—for instance, about my infertility, when I was seeing him for Crohn’s. I now feel healed, and have more energy than I knew possible! I finally was able to get pregnant and I think it had everything to do with healing my autoimmune issues. We now have a healthy, grain-free happy boy!" Catherine Meyers
Gabrielle Glancy
"Sometimes the road to health involves finding a golden key and having enough information and support to unlock the door. Chris is that golden key. He figured out what was wrong when no one else could and helped me find my way back to health through the very sound principles of nutrition, stress-management and integrative support. I got my life back." Gabrielle Glancy
Lonnie Chu
"Between the diet and the specific supplements Chris recommended for me, I have lost 25 pounds, gotten almost all my energy back, almost all joint pain is gone and for the first time in my life my gut is functioning properly. Feeling like a whole new person does a lot of things. I'm ready to take on new career challenges that I didn't have the energy for before. I'm thinking more clearly and living life." Lonnie Chu
