Free Autoimmune Summit Online Now

The Autoimmune Summit is free online now here. Each day is full of several talks from doctors and experts about causes and healing with autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are on the rise. I myself suffer from Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. The one thing that I never understood was that having one autoimmune disease greatly increases your risk of developing other autoimmune diseases. There is loads of great information about controlling the immune response, things that will trigger an immune flair up, etc. Blessings, Kat

I just found your blog today, via Patrice Lewis's blog, Rural-Revolution. I think the hand of God directed me to it.
Kudos on your blog. I really liked the one on reading issues with the kiddos. There is no timetable for learning to read, my oldest couldn't read independently until he was a teen. However, we didn't let it stop him from learning. My biggest regret is that I didn't pull him and his siblings from public school when they started in with the "he suffers from low self-esteem, what are you doing to him, that's why he can't read" blah, blah, blah. Let's see, I think Einstein couldn't read until later, Charles Schwab couldn't read through college and may not yet read proficiently. There are plenty of well known people who could not learn through the one-size fits all methods the schools use; the kids get labeled as having something wrong with them, it's a great way for extra dollars to go to the school. But I digress.
I just watched two videos from the autoimmune forum. I won't/can't afford to buy the videos to catch up, but I have some places to start. I have been bounced from doctor to doctor, and at the last one, a brain and spinal doctor, I walked through the door and the doc asked me when I was diagnosed with Lupus. I said I hadn't been. He told me I was a textbook picture of Lupus. Unfortunately, he sent me to find my own rheumatologist, of which there were NONE in my state. It may have been a good thing. My now 85 year old dad has helped me to figure out some good supplements to get on, plus the food allergy testing resulted in all grains being eliminated from my diet. It was a great start, but those times when I get into them can cause me problems for months.
Thank you again. I am making the time to watch these (while trying to homeschool), but hey, if I'm down and out, I don't get much teaching done, either.
Thanks again. I am going to be a regular reader.
