Written by Casey Hersch, MSW, LCSW

Dr. Teitelbaum discusses autoimmune illnesses with Light Your Sparkle:

I had the privilege to interview Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, world renowned integrative physician, author, and expert on autoimmune illnesses and chronic pain.  I have followed his work for many years, using it to support my own struggles with autoimmune illness and I learned so much from our time together.  Following our interview, I began implementing some of his recommendations.  He stressed the importance of using him and other physicians as a "guide" rather than a boss and to choose treatments that "feel right" based on the educated information received.

The autoimmune illness epidemic
Factors overwhelming the immune system
The psyche and how perceptions drive the immune system
Empowerment--how to make decisions for your health
Crohn's disease
