30: The Functional Medicine Solution for Autoimmune Disease | Dr. Amy Myers, MD

Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and hypothyroidism, however, there are many more that affect the nervous system, joints and muscles, skin, and even heart.
