Emotional Disclosure Can Help Those Living With RA

Unhurry®️ founder, Rachna Chhachhi is a rheumatoid arthritis warrior. Her healing became enhanced when she began emotional disclosure for past traumas. Subsequently, in 2009, she began treating autoimmune patients across the world and found that empirical evidence pointed to positive clinical outcomes when along with medicines, nutrition, breathwork, counselling was added to help release suppressed emotions and experiences. This research article is the first step by clinicians to recognise the connection between emotional disclosures and recovery in autoimmune. We hope more such researches are conducted and evidence of emotions and recovery for autoimmune patients is accepted as an integrative treatment methodology.

Type 1 Diabetes Linked To Gut Inflammation

People with Type 1 diabetes exhibit inflammation in the digestive tract and gut bacteria¬ — a pattern that differs from individuals who do not have diabetes or those who have celiac disease, according to a new study.
