Auto-Immune Nutritional Support
Autoimmune diseases are increasing at alarming rates and now affect over 24 million people. They include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, thyroid disease(Hashimoto’s and Grave’s), Celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease(Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis), and many more. The National Institutes of Health has estimated that at least 80 human diseases are caused by primarily or secondarily by an autoimmune response, with new diseases being added to the list frequently.
Autoimmune conditions are connected by one central biochemical process: A runaway immune response also known as systemic inflammation that results in your body attacking its own tissues. In the traditional medical model, doctors are trained to diagnose the disease by symptoms and shut off inflammation with aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication such as Advil or Motrin, steroids, or more powerful immune suppressing medication that often times have serious side effects. The problem is, the symptoms are treated, but not the root causes.
If you want to cool off inflammation in the body, you must find the source by investigating and determining the causes of the inflammatory response, such as: hidden allergens, infections, environmental toxins, an inflammatory diet, and stress response.
If you are looking for a new approach to finding and treating the underlying causes of inflammation and disease, call the office to schedule your 60-minute nutritional evaluation. The remaining visits will be determined, after the initial consult.
