So I’ve noticed more and more that when I get sick I get a flare up. I knew this before but it’s changed a bit.

I used to get sick every single time I flew. It would be a fever and it would last about two days. Sometimes it would evolve into bronchitis. Literally every time I flew. It happened to dad too. We’d travel, be in bed for 2 days with a fever, and then be fine. So I started wearing masks on planes and boom, problem solved. It was hard to believe because I thought there was a period of time after you catch something where you don’t show symptoms, and I’d literally be sick as soon as I left the plane (basically). But the mask thing worked.

When I went super low carb I thought I was invincible and didn’t wear a mask on a plane to Europe. I had the fever by the time I got to Prague. It evolved into bronchitis over the next three weeks.

Anyway, now that I’m only eating beef, salt, and water. I feel invincible yet again. So I stopped wearing a mask. Because I don’t learn apparently, and masks are annoying. When I went to Hawaii in May I had diarrhea for about 5 days after the plane ride. I thought it was because of the beef there (I bought beef from Costco). Now I’m not so sure… I’ll have to test out Costco beef again. I think its from the plane ride. I just got back from a family vacation and the same thing has happened. Scarlett caught something too this time which is how I realized what was going on. It looks like that fever I used to get after planes has changed into something else. It’s pretty minor, mostly just diarrhea and an overall icky feeling. I’m getting better now but here’s what happens when I catch a cold or get a flu:

  • diarrhea for about 5 days (or other flu/cold symptoms)
  • my skin breaks out (I have a breakout on my chin and chest and shoulders right now)
  • arthritic flare up (my right elbow is killing me and my right big toe is swollen, and I can feel it in my right pinky) this NEVER happens unless I eat something wrong or I’m sick.
  • body odour (I never have body odour unless I eat something wrong or I catch something)
  • minor mood dip and minor lower back pain (these symptoms never show up separated)
  • overall restless feeling
  • Brain fog

I hardly ever get sick on this diet. I used to be sick all the time. I basically had bronchitis most of the time. I’m hardly ever sick and now when I’m sick I can barely tell. But I do get autoimmune symptoms when it happens. And if I’m in a plane, I never get away with it without catching something. How strange is that? Also pretty gross. Anyway, it’s a not a big deal, I’m fine. I’ve been sauna-ing it out. But if you start getting symptoms after a plane ride, same. A medical mask seems to solve it for me.

I’m going to LA next week and I’ll wear a mask and see if it happens again.

    Thanks for the update. You are a trooper 😉

  2. KomboKatjie on August 20, 2018 at 8:37 am

    Yay, can’t wait to read all your posts. I am a new subscriber as of today!! I also changed my diet and now buy mostly just beef! I had dismal depression and after I eat some steak I feel immediate energized and good. I am pretty sure this has lately been fending off a LOT of depression for me!! You really helped a lot when you said we should not be tired after eating, that makes soooo much sense! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences!!

  3. John on August 20, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Try fasting before flying. Apparently reduces illness mortality when shipping livestock (tropical fish/cattle) by air.

  4. Barry Simon on August 20, 2018 at 8:46 am

    I’m pretty sure international as well as some domestic flights have pesticide applications. That could be the cause your reactions. It affects different people in different ways.

  5. Catherine Augestad on August 20, 2018 at 8:52 am

    When do you start wearing the mask? Is it from the moment you enter the airport or upon boarding the plane?

    • Mikhaila on August 20, 2018 at 9:00 am

      Usually when we’re about to take off and then I take it off after we’ve landed.. It’s not even the whole time I’m on the plane and it seems to solve whatever the problem is.

  6. Nicholas Richards on August 20, 2018 at 8:58 am

    I wonder on carnivore is it wise to take say 5000mg of VIT C before a long flight?

  7. Visitor on August 20, 2018 at 9:00 am

    This is fascinating!

    The improvement of your health is a miracle, Mikhaila, I hope you figure this one out too and connect all the dots – these are some strange, strange clues.

    This points to your immune system being overactive perhaps? It viciously attacks the “germs” on the plane and the reaction lasts for a long time, maybe too long, this gives you the symptoms, and then it also viciously attacks almost all the food you eat. What do you think?

    What do you know about your immune system other than the usual measure of level of granulocytes? Or better, has anyone been fascinated enough by your condition in the scientific community to try to figure out what is going on?

  8. Nila on August 20, 2018 at 9:01 am

    I don’t get sick much, but I learned about 10 years ago that flying will make me sick 100% of the time, and way sicker than any other time I’m sick. The last time I flew I wore a mask too, from the time I entered the airport. It helped as I still got sick, but only mildly for about 12 hours. Glad to know that meat/salt/water doesn’t necessarily protect from that. I tend to feel like I’m under a new set of rules, too, as I feel better and better eating this way.

  9. MethylEthel on August 20, 2018 at 9:07 am

    That’s really interesting. I have a long history of annual bouts of awful bronchitis (three times where I cracked ribs with coughing), and always, always, catch something respiratory on planes. I had assumed it was just the low, low, low humidity on planes drying out my airways. Somehow it never occurred to me to wear a mask– I will certainly give that a go next time.

  10. Marx on August 20, 2018 at 9:19 am

    It could just be psychosomatic – you know, an anchor, that your body responds to. Try NLP, or Ericksonian Hypnosis, that might do the trick too – best of luck!

  11. Jeffrey on August 20, 2018 at 9:26 am


    Maybe you are having die-off symptoms for some reason or another. There was an interesting website I found that spoke about these types of things. It was called healing naturally by bee. The brief premise was to follow the eating guidelines she came up with and for every year you were sick that’s how many months you would have to be on the diet. (Although it seemed as though it was never a good idea to go off once you were eating this way even if you were healed). I’m guessing for you it’d be as old as you were that you’d have to eat that way and while taking supplement / strictly eating her meal plan you’d experience die off symptoms. And the thing is maybe we have I’ll-ness or what we call being “sick” all wrong. Maybe the body creates the “sick” to return the body back to normal. Almost like homeostasis. I find this way of thinking pretty fascinating. Like it’s actually creating the illness to be healthy again. So next time you feel sick maybe think of it as your body creating something to return back to optimization. Most of the time my way of thinking is 99% wrong because when it comes down to it I don’t know that much. I think you often have those same thoughts. I tend to dislike suggesting things because like I said above I don’t know muc and when I think I do that validates my ignorance. It is a good thing that you are so in tune with your body and take that much care for yourself. It certainly is difficult to follow such regimen for a long period of time. Best of luck in your journey.

    Kind regards,

  12. Sandra Stanley on August 20, 2018 at 9:35 am

    Hi Mikhaila Thank you for the blog I’m a new subscriber. I found you through you dad I saw an interview you did when you was young with your dad and then the one after you first changed your diet. That was about a year ago. I was so inspired by you. I suffer from UCTD which stands for undifferentiated connective tissue disease I have lupus and rheumatoid arthritis depression anxiety and bone cysts I’m 49 and been I’ll since my early 20’s. I had been told I would be on anti depressants for the rest of my life. I was on tons of pain meds as well.
    To see your transformation was awe inspiring to me and gave me hope. Especially the possibility of being able to come off anti depressants. I can’t list my symptoms they’re too many but typical joint pain brain fog fatigue skin probs headaches digestive you know the ones. So I spoke to my Gp and because of the digestive problems she tested me for Celiac disease which thankfully I don’t have but I’m gluten intolerant. I went gluten free and within three months I was off all my tablets! My brain fog cleared so I was able to do some research into my condition which has helped me come to terms with my life. I then went lactose free as well. I feel a lot better. I’ve been off my tablets for about 8 months now after being on them for almost 3 decades. I’m so happy about that. I identified with your latest blog I get those symptoms to ….. wonder why the pinky finger? I’m so happy I found this blog your dad mentioned it in a video and I signed up straight away as I’ve always wanted to thank you for speaking publicly about what went through because it’s hard to open up like that. I’m so glad you did. I’m feeling pretty good right now I’m eating just meat and greens and drinking lemon and ginger water. I still take my Plaquinell as the symptoms returned within two weeks of stopping that but that’s the only one I take now. I still need to eradicate sugar from my diet. It is so addictive I rely on it’s false boost so I can walk my dogs or clean my room. Energy drinks. Bad bad bad. Anyway I’m a work in progress. I thank God the universe or whoever for you and your dad a may you and your entire clan be blessed and prosper.

  13. Anne on August 20, 2018 at 9:44 am

    We always get sick on planes…all that reciruculated air…all those people…all those contagions…from every place the plane has been. As with hospitals, which have hard to get rid of resident beasties, my guess is that airplanes are continuously contaminated. I’ve never worn a mask on a plane, but it’s a good idea. Maybe planes should hand them out as a precautionary measure.

    • Mikhaila on August 20, 2018 at 10:30 am

      Yeah, planes are gross. They could at least hand them out to people who are visibly ill… I pack them, I’ll just start using them again. They’re annoying but not as annoying as getting sick!

  14. Kenn Macd on August 20, 2018 at 9:58 am

    Hi Mikhaila.
    It seems to happen on planes? I wonder if EMF could be a variable here? Basically a plane is a metal tube, with wifi signals bouncing around inside, sounds like a microwave oven! 😉 Maybe that weakens your body, so you’re more susceptible to bacteria/virus (hence the mask helps) You might like to try putting a bare foot (skin) on the metal support of the seat in front of you as this will ground you to the planes ground, and so you’ll be invisible to the wifi (and other EMF) in the plane and it won’t affect you. To test it out though it wouldn’t make sense to wear the mask as you wouldn’t know if it was effective or not.On the other hand, if airplanes still spray pesticides then maybe a mask IS a good idea also.

  15. ann on August 20, 2018 at 10:21 am

    An insurance executive told me that the airlines don’t routinely clean and disinfect the air systems on planes as thoroughly as they needed to in the past when smoking on board was allowed. To avoid plane-borne illness carry a small vial of apple cider vinegar to add to water to gargle with both immediately before and after flying. Both my husband and I have done this for the past several years and have been able to stay healthy when flying.

  16. Joel Northwall on August 20, 2018 at 10:31 am

    Cabin air is drier than normal, for a few reasons, and this dries out your mucous membranes which are one of your first lines of defense. Couple that with breathing the same (recycled) air as 100-200 people in an enclosed space for an extended time, and I think that’s the simplest answer — a general immunological response. Besides a mask, I think there’s a company out there that sells a gel you can squirt up your nose.

  17. Helen donkersgoed on August 20, 2018 at 10:45 am

    So sorry that you got so sick from travelling. It would be nice if you could just catch a break! I am curious about the mask thing so please keep us updated next time you travel. Also post a picture of yourself wearing the mask please! Just want to see what kind you wear. Thanks.

  18. Vasiliy on August 20, 2018 at 10:58 am

    AFAIK, Aajonus Vonderplanitz wore a mask on planes. What kind of mask do you use?

  19. jay gibson on August 20, 2018 at 11:39 am

    Very much enjoy your blog and the adventures that you share. It’s continually amazing how individuals are trying to ‘box in’ what constitutes a ‘healthy diet’ and how that just can’t be done. As an example (am a heart patient) I’ve seen coffee flip flop back and forth over the last 35 years. Now it is “Very Healthy” for your heart to drink 4 cups a day. OMG. Anyway, Thank you.

    • teedee126 on August 23, 2018 at 8:48 am

      And you have to be careful about who is funding those studies about coffee being ‘good for you.’ I looked into all the claims about chocolate being super healthy and found that Mars Inc. funds most of them. Now, I always look for the conflicts of interest before I’ll believe a word ‘any’ study says about food and beverages. Follow the money…

  20. Abraham Sanchez on August 20, 2018 at 12:49 pm

    What do you do for bronchitis? I cant seem to get rid of it except with corticosteroid injections and mucus thinners like guaifanesin. Been eating carnivore for 2 months and it has helped a lot with everything except bronchitis.

    • Mikhaila on August 20, 2018 at 1:03 pm

      Are you still eating dairy?

  21. Jim Kennedy on August 20, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    I don’t know if this will help. I have been following Dr. Rhonda Patrick and perhaps using a sauna will help. If you already have and it made things worse please ignore my suggestion. Here is something by her.
    Using the sauna 4-7 times per week associated with a 40% lower all-cause mortality. Might be the HSPs! … cc/@tferriss
    (she does foundmyfitness and is a Ph.D in biomedical science/expert on nutritional health, brain & aging. (and no she isn’t a vegan 🙂 )

    • Mikhaila on August 20, 2018 at 6:54 pm

      I use a sauna for flus for sure! Love them.

      • Jeroen on August 21, 2018 at 11:59 am

        Would love to try a sauna, but I always get terribly short on breath in one to the point I’m almost choking.

        • Mikhaila on August 21, 2018 at 1:16 pm

          Do you use a steam sauna or an infrared sauna? The steam ones used to make me feel like I couldn’t breathe too

  22. Lindsey on August 21, 2018 at 11:00 am

    My immune system is not adequately suppressed so I almost never get “sick” but when I’m exposed to something that challenges my immune system I have a flare that is severe for about two days. I chalk it up to my ridiculous immune response flaring to knock out the infection.

  23. Max on August 21, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Aajanous Vonderplanitz writes about how he wore a mask when he flew because of what you just described. He’s the raw meat guy. You may want to check him out if you’re interested jus to see what has worked for other people. A few of his lectures have been posted on YouTube and the rest you can buy online along with his books. But one thing I’ve been meaning to ask you is, have you tried reintroducing raw unpasteurized milk? Many ‘lactose intolerants’ who have negative reactions to dairy find that raw milk is fine for them once they get past the ‘introduction’ phase where everyone who drinks it the first time has diarrhea for a few days bc your body has to get used to the bacteria in the milk.

  24. Fil Vieira-Lee on August 21, 2018 at 10:09 pm

    Hey Mikhaila, my husband has RA and ever since I have been using essential oils from Doterra it has made a huge difference. I diffuse every night the On Guard blend which builds your immune system and I use juniper berry oil and frankincense topically on his joints and he has been feeling much better. I use to be a skeptic with oils but now can’t live without them. Hope you feel better soon!

  25. Adam on August 22, 2018 at 1:11 pm


    Off topic, but have you considered adding a forum section to this site? Everyone seems to be asking FAQs irrelevant to each blog entry. It would be helpful to build a community and discuss our experiences. Especially because this – and health/diet in general – is in it’s formative stages it would be incredibly useful. Consider it. I’m sure everyone would appreciate it.

  26. Sam on August 22, 2018 at 6:07 pm

    I have Lyme and am thinking of trying this diet, only problem is one of my IgG’s is beef, along with dairy and peanuts. Would lamb be a good substitute? I know it’s rare to be intolerant to beef but I do feel kind of sick whenever I eat it so I avoid anyway

    • Kai Kamp on August 23, 2018 at 2:44 am

      One of the common conditions with tick bites (especially lone star) is that it gives you a meat allergy (to the alpha-gal)…. I guess you can still eat old world monkeys, apes, or if you’re part of the Donner “party”, humans. Not sure if you have this, but worth checking out, because then lamb wouldn’t cut it.

      • TeeDee on August 23, 2018 at 8:37 am

        Even when beef causes a reaction for a few people, lamb is usually very low reactive for them, so you shouldn’t just lump them both together. I know 2 people with Lyme Disease who thrive on both beef and lamb. People need to try it for themselves and see how they feel.

  27. steven v on August 23, 2018 at 4:02 am

    Crazy story, I also had a strong allergic reaction to altitude changes when I went out West for a vacation for a few months a couple of years ago. I believe that dry air and altitude change made me quite ill also, fortunately I don’t get ill on plane rides for such a short period of time.

  28. Flo on August 23, 2018 at 4:27 pm

    Glad it’s not a full blown 30day auto immune depression reaction!

    Have you gotten flare ups from swimming? from accidently ingesting pool/sea/river water?

  29. Amanda E on August 24, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Will the diet help with rosacea? I need help. I feel terrible most of the time.

  30. Michael on August 25, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    Air Canada has a few Dreamliners and Westjet has recently been advertising that they’re adding one or some to their fleet.

  31. Michael on August 25, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    Mikhaila, what kind of mask do you use?

    • Mikhaila on August 25, 2018 at 8:18 pm

      I’ve just been using a regular mask like in the picture. The kind they use in hospitals. It seems to do the trick.. I’ll find out on my trip next week.

      • juan g on September 2, 2018 at 2:19 am

        did you use the mask on your los angeles flight? howd it pan out?

  32. Michael on August 25, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    I meant to say in the above comment, “Try to choose flights with that plane and don’t wear a mask and see what happens.”

  33. Jessica on August 26, 2018 at 12:02 am

    Wow, this might explain why my baby and I got got cold symptoms after recently flying. Good tip! We’ve been doing zero carb for 11 months now. Thanks for continuing to share your story!

  34. Michael on August 26, 2018 at 12:39 am

    Hi Mikhaila,

    I’m reposting my earlier comment that’s still “awaiting moderation” this time without the links. I’m not sure if you had seen this comment.

    Since you get sick so quickly, it’s less likely an infection and more likely a poisoning. It might be ”Aerotoxic Syndrome.”

    As described in a newsdotcomdotau article “Aerotoxic syndrome can occur when the cabin air, which is “bled” in from the engines to pressurise it, is compromised. This bleed air can be contaminated with heated engine oil fumes that contain hazardous chemicals, which crews and passengers breathe and may also absorb through the skin.”

    The mask may have been saving you from the poisoned air. You may be like the canary in the mine. Perhaps everyone should wear a mask. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has a new advanced outside-only air system. Try to choose flights with that plane and don’t wear a mask and see what happens.

    • teedee126 on August 26, 2018 at 8:41 am

      Thanks so much for posting this info on Mikhaila’s page, Michael. I’m going to pass it on to my son who has to travel a lot for his gigs. I think you’re right about Mikhaila being the canary in a coal mine and we should all make it standard practice to wear masks when we fly so as not to tax our systems all the time.

      • Michael on August 26, 2018 at 3:01 pm

        Hi teedee126,

        What has been hidden for years is now finally being recognized as a significant health risk associated with flying. Tell your son to search the term “Aerotoxic Syndrome” and he will find an abundance of information on-line.

  35. flo on August 26, 2018 at 7:40 am

    Mikhaila, could swimming in a pool cause a reaction if you accidently ingest some of the chloride water?
    or accidently ingesting minute amounts of soap through the nose when showering?

    or am i overthinking these things that are not related to food?

    • Mikhaila on August 26, 2018 at 8:19 am

      Overthinking! Just give the diet some time. I totally understand the paranoia though!

      • flo on August 26, 2018 at 8:25 am

        Ok thx 🙂 it’s been 3 weeks and a half now and i’m really feeling better, still not good, but it’s working for sure!

        • Mikhaila on August 26, 2018 at 10:17 am

          Oh good! It keeps getting better after about 3.5 weeks. Good for you!!

          • flo on August 26, 2018 at 1:48 pm

            I look forward to feeling normal again 🙂

            If i have a reaction, how fast after ingesting something will i know? i used some scissors to open my ground beef but i saw afterwards that there was a little bit encrusted sauce on the scissor from my mom using it the day before, i don’t think any got loose whilst opening the ground beef, but i’m so paranoid x)

          • Mikhaila on August 26, 2018 at 2:15 pm

            Don’t worry. It’s too exhausting worrying about every little thing. If it’s something tiny like that it would take a while to notice and it wouldn’t be too bad.

          • flo on August 26, 2018 at 2:19 pm

            Ok thx so much for all the replies, you and your dad are saving lives 🙂

          • flo on August 27, 2018 at 3:57 pm

            Could swallowing a hair cause a reaction? or are non-food environment things (dust and such) not a concern?

          • Mikhaila on August 27, 2018 at 5:14 pm

            Doesn’t seem like it. Just give it some more time. I haven’t had a reaction to pollen or dust or anything. Just regular allergy reactions, not depression or anything.

          • flo on August 27, 2018 at 5:24 pm

            Ok, i swallowed one of my hairs when eating ribeye, knowing that it’s not meat i started to wonder if it could cause a reaction.

            thx again 🙂

  36. George on August 28, 2018 at 4:18 am

    Have you checked if the same happens to you by dirty A/C filters?

    • Mikhaila on August 28, 2018 at 10:26 am

      So far it’s just planes

  37. fabian on August 28, 2018 at 5:46 am

    Have you ever gotten a reaction from airbourne gluten flour? like when you were in a store where there was also a bakery or when you were in a house where someone was baking with flour?

    is this a cause of concern or are these amounts negligible?

  38. teedee126 on August 28, 2018 at 6:49 am

    fabian/flo I realize you’re dealing with depression and OCD and you have my sympathies. You also may not want to hear this, but these comment threads are for discussion, so I’m going to say it and hope it helps you: perhaps in addition to changing your diet, you could take one crucial step to easing your constant stress and obsession with the tiniest little particles in the world (unless you want to live in a bubble and not risk exposure at all). Anyone who knows someone with OCD realizes that there are different stages: the obsessive thoughts, the obsessive behaviors, the obsessive talking about your fears and concerns, so I’m wondering if you could refrain from the constant repetitive questions when a compulsive thought comes up. It would be a healthy step toward learning to control it. Just one tiny baby step. You’ll likely still have the urge to ask Mikhaila these obsessive questions over and over again, but if you stop yourself before you actually ask the questions and stick to just ‘thinking’ those thoughts, it may lead to quicker healing. I keep reading articles that refer to stress levels as equally important as sleep and diet, so I hope you’ll consider this aspect of your healing journey as well. Good luck to you and I really hope you can take this vital step.

    • fabian on August 28, 2018 at 7:06 am

      Thx, i just want to make sure i never get a reaction again, it’s extremely stressful to be on guard all the time because a tiny amount of anything could potentially put me back into nightmare depression for a month, i want to make sure i have all the info on how to prevent this from happening.

  39. B on August 29, 2018 at 7:48 pm

    The flare ups must be due to the systemic inflammation from your body trying to fight off the cold/virus. Obviously mood issues and auto-immune diseases are largely caused by inflammation, so it makes sense that these issues would be triggered when there’s inflammation present in your body for any reason, whether it be due to a virus or food sensitivities. I never get sick since I started taking kratom, and I don’t get cold sores anymore either. I used to always get them at least several times a year, usually when I was run down or sleep deprived. Now I never even get them when I’m sleep deprived and I used to ALWAYS get them when I was sleep deprived. So you should look into trying kratom! I’m curious if kratom would work for you, or if kratom itself would trigger a flare up due to it being a type of plant matter, and it seems that you can’t tolerate any type of plant matter.

  40. Kim on September 1, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    My daughter is type one diabetic. I was watching you dad on YouTube and he said you had posted something on this. Please let me know where I could find this.

  41. Nick Savino on September 3, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    Just got back from Italy to Toronto Wednesday night and was in horrible shape within hours of landing. Now I got razor sharp pain when I cough. So yes I believe you!

  42. TO on September 3, 2018 at 7:18 pm

    I travel frequently for work, and used to always get sick. That didn’t go over well with the family. Started wearing a mask on flights and haven’t been sick since. It’s the lack of humidity in the cabin at altitude. The cabin air gets super dry, and your nasal mucosal system (a first line of immune defense) shuts down. Combine with recycled air and close proximity to 100+ passengers, and it quickly becomes a Petri dish inside the plane.
    As for masks, my recommendation:
    Discrete, stylish, carbon filter, and used by the US Cycling team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
    Be safe & Well.

    • Kenn Macd on September 3, 2018 at 11:19 pm

      May I also suggest that you take off your shoes and sock and place your foot on the metal stanchion of the seat in front of you. That should connect you to the ground of the plane, and allow you to be unaffected by any wireless signals bouncing around inside that metal tube we call an airplane.

    One more note about the use of a mask on the plane. Beyond the physical barrier to what you’re breathing in, the mask supports maintaining humidity in and around the nasal passages. Add a little natural nasal spray to the process, and you’ve got a stout defense against the common bugs and virus’ associated with travel. And it’s worth the few sideways glances that come with it.

    i believe its the amount of bacteria in the plane combine with the high radiation and lack of sleep causing this issues

    So you get the same auto immune reaction if you get sick and if you eat something you can not handle?

      Yeah. So I don’t think this my issue is purely a gut issue.. I mean the reactions from food are WAY worse, but I still definitely get autoimmune symptoms when I get a cold. Or when I take an intravenous medication.

    On a recent trip to Manila I got sick easily (fever, throat infection) from just around outside. I noticed some people wearing masks and once I started wearing one myself I didn’t get sick anymore. I would say the air in a third world country is nearly as bad as the air on a plane. Oh yeah, I suffer from CFS, arthritis and autoimmune issues.
