Atlas / Autoimmune / Strawberries

The Autoimmune System

Atlas came down with strep throat last week, and we have been discussing all things wellness and healing.

Me:  Your immune system is like a brick wall that helps keep the sickness out.  We eat nourishing foods and get a lot of sleep to keep it strong.

Atlas:  You mean your autoimmune system.

Note to self:  The kid is listening to your podcasts

Me:  Well, that’s something different.  An autoimmune disorder means that your immune system has gone crazy and started attacking your body instead of protecting it.

Atlas:  You  mean like punching yourself in the face?

Me:  Yep.  Pretty much.
