The Success SHIFT

Nov 29, 2022

Welcome to another edition of our live weekly expert series on the Stress to Success S.H.I.F.T. 


Our very special guest is our Institute’s Autoimmune Expert, Elizabeth Yarnell.


Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, Elizabeth has been on a mission to redefine MS and autoimmunity naturally as a traditional naturopath and Certified LEAP Therapist. 


She has worked with hundreds of MS and other autoimmune sufferers in her nationwide clinic using unique, customized non-pharmaceutical therapies to empower them to reclaim their health.  


She’s a TEDx speaker, award-winning author whose cookbook has sold more than 70,000 copies, a patented inventor, and has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC, and PBS as well as in Good Housekeeping, Health, Martha Stewart Living Radio, and many other outlets. 


Her next book, which is focused on Redefining Multiple Sclerosis, comes out in March of 2023.


In this episode, we decided to highlight three hidden causes of Autoimmune conditions that conventional methods miss or ignore. 


Then we showed how the Stress to Success S.H.I.F.T. Institute's 16-Week Autoimmune Reset Experience guides you in eliminating these and other hidden factors, so you can restore your health, recover your life, and reinvent your future.

Talking Points:

  • You may not even realize that what you have is an autoimmune condition
  • If you have any chronic health challenges, you might have autoimmunity, becuase it typically takes years to be formally diagnosed
  • Autoimmunity is caused by chronic inflammation and dysfunction of the immune system. That is in turn caused by hidden factors that are missed or dismissed by conventional methods.
  • The role of the Industrial Revolution in the development of Autoimmune Conditions
  • Types of autoimmune conditions include:
    • Diabetes Type 1
    • Hashimoto’s 
    • Graves
    • Multiple Sclerosis
    • Celiac
    • Psoriasis 
    • Eczema
    • Pernicious Anemia
    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Lupus
    • Alopecia
    • And many more
  • These autoimmune conditions are caused by the same root as classic allergies, food sensitivities, and asthma. 
  • Once you have one of these conditions, you’re prone to others… because they’re all caused by these same hidden factors. In fact, they’re essentially the same condition… a manifestation of the immune system attacking a particular part of the body
  • Often, people start out with bowel problems before progressing to other complications
  • Factor #1: Diet is a big factor in the immune response and how it is triggered – even eating foods that are considered healthy superfoods
  • [Side note: inflammation can cause you to hold onto weight so you could be doing everything right and still not lose weight]
  • Factor #2: Stress directly causes autoimmune conditions. It depresses your immune system and spikes inflammation through the stress hormone, cortisol. Your brain and body equate stress with the fight for survival and are concerned with keeping you alive in the moment, not whether you get sick or die later on.
  • Factor #3: Underlying Parasitic Infections are a very commone and highly overlooked cause of inflammation, contributing to autoimmune disorders.
