Western medicine tells us there is no cure for autoimmune diseases, that these are life-long conditions which will degenerate over time.
Why does Western medicine go so wrong in treating autoimmune diseases?
Dr. Akil’s famous gas pedal analogy helps us answer this question. Think of the body as a car, with the immune system controlled by the gas pedal and the brake. Autoimmune disease occurs when the gas pedal is pressed all the way down to the floor and the immune system is out of control. Western medication like steroids suppress the immune system by slamming on the brakes, but the gas pedal is still pressed, meaning that the underlying disease process is still active. Which means the disease resurfaces when you stop the medicines.
The Ayurvedic approach, on the other hand, takes the foot off the gas pedal by removing the triggers for autoimmune activity.
This gives us an entirely new and exciting way of looking at how disease progresses and can be reversed. And Dr. Akil is talking about this with you here because, in his own words:
“One of the most powerful fundamental principles of Ayurveda is its emphasis on self-healing. Your body has the capacity to repair and heal itself, if provided the correct inputs and stimuli, no matter what its current state.”
This program with 3 hours of powerful content is akin to several medical lectures made relatable and fun in Dr. Akil’s trademark warm and down-to-earth style. It is packed with stories and testimonials of healing, just listening to which will suffuse you with positive energy and strong hope!

Lastly, In Dr. Akil’s words:
"I have seen first-hand the power of Ayurveda in action in successfully treating autoimmune disease. You can see what a tremendous difference an Ayurvedic therapeutic program can make to your life. The biggest takeaway here is that diagnosing and treating Agni imbalances and leaky gut syndrome is the foundation of treating and reversing autoimmune disease. This program helps you to eliminate commonly problematic foods, increase your intake of nutrient-dense healing foods, and begin the process of detoxification. It helps you increase energy,reduceinflammation,burn fat,and begin to reverse autoimmune disease.”
