AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS

Autoimmune diseases are a passion of mine. Although there are many different diseases that manifest in different ways it all comes down to an imbalance of the immune system. Particularly for adult-onset autoimmune diseases it is extremely important to look at reducing inflammation and insult to the immune system. 
Key factors in treatment: 

 

  • Reducing inflammatory responses as this is an extra burden on your immune system

  • Re-regulating not only the immune system, but any other hormonal relationships that may be out of balance and contributing to the dysfunction happening in your body. 


Below are a list of autoimmune diseases that can benefit from my care, and by no means is this extensive:

  • Addison's Disease

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease

  • Celiac disease

  • Grave's disease

  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Psoriasis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • etc.


You'll notice that many of these are mentioned in other areas of this site. It's important to think of a condition as the root cause, and the organ(s) and functions affected. A multi-layered approach is key to helping you feel better. 
If any of the above relates to your case, and you’re ready to begin the healing process, contact the clinic to book your initial consult.
