Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmunity occurs when an overburdened immune system becomes hypersensitized, attacking healthy tissues along with foreign invaders. Unfortunately, autoimmune conditions have become commonplace – from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis to psoriasis, IBD, lupus, and diabetes to name few.

What Is Autoimmunity?

As mentioned, autoimmunity occurs when an overburdened immune system becomes hypersensitized. So how do you become so sensitized? Normally, your immune system is already very busy fighting off a wide variety of invaders – including allergens, toxins, bacteria and viruses. Unfortunately, many people overload their immune systems every day, in a wide variety of ways – from poor food choices, to absorbing toxins from their environment, water and even cosmetics. Apart from toxic overload, gut issues are a major catalyst for compromised immune function. In particular, leaky gut (when cracks or "holes" form in the lining of the intestinal tract, allowing toxins to leach into your blood) is considered a precursor for many if not all autoimmune illnesses. As a result, your immune system stays on “high alert” all the time. This can cause it to start to attack healthy tissues as well and even entire organs. Various systems in your body can suffer – from your joints, brain, skin, and glands to your thyroid.

Dealing With Autoimmune Disorders

Typically when people are diagnosed with autoimmune disorders, their doctor gives them the impression that they are stuck with it for the rest of their life, implying that it isn’t reversible – but that’s not always true, especially if you treat autoimmune issues early. Often, they will prescribe medications like injection biologics that just help to manage the symptoms – but don’t really deal with the root causes. What’s worse, many people report still feeling poorly on these medications which do nothing to address the inflammation and underlying imbalances that caused the autoimmune issues in the first place. As a result, autoimmune disorders tend to leave many people feeling stuck & unsupported. Yet while conventional medicine may only suggest prescription medicines, there is indeed a better way to treat and potentially reverse autoimmune conditions by address all the root causes of this chronic illness. That's why being diagnosed with an autoimmune condition doesn’t have to mean you can’t lead a vibrant, rich life – because when you work with the right guide by your side, healing is possible. But the key to treating autoimmune disorders successfully is to get the right kind of care, as soon as possible. In addition to poor gut health, there are typically multiple triggers for autoimmune conditions. That’s why it’s so important to partner with a integrative medicine provider that’s trained to untangle these chronic issues at the gut/immune level: Running the correct lab tests to figure out what’s amiss, and then crafting a custom treatment protocol tailored to your specific situation. Healing autoimmune disorders typically involves changes to your diet, lifestyle, stress levels, and incorporating natural medicines to restore and retrain your immune system, so that you can experience vibrant health again.
