Venus Williams is unstoppable on the tennis court and she does it all while battling the autoimmune disorder Sjögren’s Syndrome. Health writes, “After a rough season of injuries and match withdrawals, she announced that she was suffering from the fairly common autoimmune disease that causes dry eye and dry mouth, as well as crushing joint pain and fatigue.” The sports star says she manages it well with a strict raw vegan diet. “I started for health reasons. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and I wanted to maintain my performance on the court. Once I started I fell in love with the concept of fueling your body in the best way possible. Not only does it help me on the court, but I feel like I’m doing the right thing for me.”
