The Autoimmune Summit 2014

The World's first online summit dedicated to
Helping you Reverse and Prevent Autoimmune Disease
November 10th - 18th 2014
Learn the latest, most up-to-date information on preventing and reversing autoimmune diseases at The Autoimmune Summit, a FREE online event!

Learn how to prevent and reverse autoimmune
disease... and live the long, healthy life you deserve!
38 experts explain how leaky gut, genetics, and environmental triggers all play a part in the development of autoimmune disease. These amazing presentations will give you all the information you need to prevent and reverse autoimmune disease!
The Autoimmune Summit brings together the top doctors, nutritionists, naturopaths, and researchers with the latest, most up-to-date information about autoimmunity.

The Autoimmune Summit will give you all the information you need to:
Understand how the gut, infections, toxins, stress, and nutrition all play a role in autoimmunity.
Learn the newest research on autoimmune disease that even your doctor doesn't know.
Focus on strategies to lower your risk of autoimmune disease and reverse health problems you already have.
Learn how to talk to your doctor and take charge of your health.

Who is it for?
Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and MS, affect more than 250 million people worldwide. In the United States, they are the 3rd leading chronic disease behind cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Have you, a friend, or family member been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease?
Do you have a family history of autoimmunity and want to learn how to prevent it?
Or are you a healthcare provider who wants to better treat your autoimmune patients?
If that sounds like you, or you just want to learn more about treating and reversing these conditions, The Autoimmune Summit is for you!

What will you learn?
In this FREE, completely ONLINE event, you'll learn about the root causes of autoimmunity and how to prevent and reverse these conditions. Experts in the fields of Functional Medicine and autoimmune disease will explain how leaky gut, genetics, and environmental triggers such as toxins, food sensitivities, infections, and stress all play a part in the development of autoimmune disease.

How does it work?
By registering, you will receive FREE online access to The Autoimmune Summit during the week of November 10th to 18th. Each day, you'll receive an email granting you access to new, exciting interviews. You'll be able to access each day's interviews for 24 hours. That way, you have the freedom to tune in when you can, no matter how hectic your schedule!

How is this summit different?
Based on twin studies, we now know that 25% of autoimmunity is genetics, and the other 75% is environment. I believe there are 5 main environmental factors that contribute to autoimmunity: leaky gut, diet, stress, toxins, and infections. Every one of these is a piece of the pie--for some, one piece may be bigger--but all play a role to some degree.
Each day of The Autoimmune Summit will include speakers from each category. In addition, certain experts will discuss special cases in autoimmunity, and why autoimmune disease has become such an epidemic. For your convenience, the experts have been color-coded, so you can easily identify the topics that interest you the most.
