After an OVERWHELMINGLY surprising response to the lists of supplements I take on a daily basis, I made a quick video to explain more.
While NOTHING has been proven to CURE any autoimmune disease, we are all intelligent enough to know that swapping healthier habits into our lifestyle HAS ALARMING benefits.
One major area I do not “skimp” on my personal health is in my daily supplement routine. This is the easiest meal of my day. And, it tastes like a smoothie from the food court, without the junk, or attitude behind the counter 😎🤣👌🏻 #autoimmunewarrior #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #rawarrior #supplementsthatwork #healingjourney #foodismedicine #inflammationrelief #rasucks
