We are delighted to host this guest post in support of the wonderful work that Palmer Kippola is doing to help people reclaim their best lives. Enjoy! – Kimberly
I’m Palmer Kippola, certified Functional Medicine Health Coach and I used to have MS.
If you’re plagued with frustrating or debilitating autoimmune symptoms like profound fatigue, aches and pains, numbness and tingling, brain fog, or all of the above you’re not alone. About one in five Americans, or roughly ten percent of the world’s population, suffers from one of the more than 100 autoimmune diseases. It’s estimated that the prevalence and cost of autoimmune disease is greater than cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined, and it’s one of the top ten causes of death in women under age sixty-four. Long haul COVID may very well be classified as an autoimmune disease too.
Autoimmunity is epidemic today but it doesn’t have to be that way.
While it took me more than two decades of trial and error to finally reverse the MS, and another 5 years to study how that was even possible, it can be far quicker, more straightforward, and less costly to reverse or prevent autoimmune conditions today.
You may be thinking all this sounds a little too good to be true. And who can blame you? You probably haven’t heard many people say, “I used to have MS,” and most likely, your doctor hasn’t mentioned anything beyond the use of prescription medication to “manage” your condition. Although millions of Americans suffer from at least one of the myriad autoimmune disorders, the best the current medical establishment can provide is little more than medications, which may in an ironic twist, trigger additional autoimmune conditions, and even cancer. That’s because most conventional doctors have never learned how to effectively treat chronic disease, like autoimmune disorders, type 2 diabetes, and dementia.
In other words, what your doctor doesn’t know can hurt you. Thankfully, despite Western medicine’s current limitations, groundbreaking studies in the last decade have given us the science we need to prevent, and yes, even reverse autoimmune disorders.
After I healed I quit my day job as an executive in the technology industry to dive into the research. What I found was so exciting it should have made front page news. Sadly, it hasn’t even made back page news.
The science of epigenetics teaches us that our DNA does not control our destiny. Our lifestyle and environments give direction to our genes. In other words, while I’ll always have the genes for MS, I mostly control whether those genes get expressed.
After successfully coaching many women back to health I had to write a book. Not just to share my own story but to share the empowering science, hopeful stories of a dozen people who have also successfully beat autoimmune conditions, and evidence-based strategies that work.
My book is called Beat Autoimmune, The 6 Keys To Reverse Your Condition and Reclaim Your Health and I’m honored that Mark Hyman, MD, pioneer of Functional Medicine, and thirteen-time New York Times bestselling author wrote the foreword. The book has reached #1 bestseller status in eight health categories on Amazon including Immunology, Alternative Medicine Reference, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, and Chronic Pain.
Today Beat Autoimmune is available in four languages including German, Polish, Chinese, and English.
