Autoimmune Mom

AutoimmuneMom.com was born out of a frustration with a lack of online information about autoimmune conditions beyond the surface-level articles and blog posts, even on the top health websites. Believing there must be a way to develop content that dug into current research and examined deeper questions, the planning for the site began.

And because moms are amazing resources for all things related to their kids, why not also create a way for them to help each other find new ideas for managing their autoimmune issues? After all, women are the majority of people affected by autoimmune, and many of us are moms.
