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.
