We are currently witnessing a paradigm shift in the understanding of autoimmune disease. The latest scientific research reveals that an individual’s microbiome can have a profound impact on inflammation throughout the body. In those with psoriasis or autoimmune arthritis, there is often a lack of beneficial bacteria that normally calm the immune system - known as “keystone” species.
Without these species, harmful bacteria can flourish, the gut barrier becomes damaged, and the immune system runs wild.
Drawing on more than 400 scientific studies, The Keystone Approach offers a comprehensive new strategy for healing arthritis and psoriasis by repairing the gut and rebalancing the microbiome. This strategy is specifically tailored to address the underlying causes of:
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Juvenile arthritis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Joint pain associated with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis
Along with a detailed dietary plan, The Keystone Approach includes Mediterranean-inspired recipes and specific guidance on how to choose anti-inflammatory supplements that are supported by clinical trials.
