AutoImmune Conditions

Autoimmune Conditions

Autoimmune conditions are becoming alarmingly common.  Autoimmunity occurs when the immune system, which normally defends your body against disease, gets confused and attacks your own healthy tissue.

Autoimmunity is a multifactorial condition; certain infections, stress, chronic inflammation in the gut, genetics, allergies and food intolerances, and environmental exposure to chemicals can all play a role in the development of autoimmune disease. In clinical practice, I see patients with some of the following conditions:

  • Celiac Disease
  • Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Graves disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • SLE or Lupus
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Vitiligo

We take an integrated approach to treating your condition. We look at contributing factors by doing functional testing such as stool analysis, hormone analysis, food sensitivity testing, environmental toxicity and nutritional testing when needed. Natural treatment recommendations can also be safely prescribed to augment any other therapies or medications.
