You’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease or maybe you’re worried about developing autoimmunity because it runs in your family.
You’re not alone. Despite our advances in technology, autoimmunity is on the rise – exponentially on the rise. Why is this?
Yes, there is a genetic component to autoimmunity, however, we are discovering that our environment plays a much bigger role in determining whether autoimmunity will develop. Chronic health issues occur when there is a mismatch between what our genes need to thrive and what we are getting in our current environment.
My job is to figure out what your body needs and remove any triggers to help bring your immune system back into balance. This is what helps get your immune system out of overdrive so you can prevent or reverse autoimmunity.
Finding the source of your triggers requires a fair amount of digging. This requires looking at your history, diet, medications, and lifestyle including sleep habits, stress management, and movement. In addition, I utilize specific labs to look for:
- Nutrient imbalances
- Food intolerances
- Gut imbalances
- Cortisol levels
- Detox capacity
- Other blood markers
Treatment modalities that we may use to help you include:
- Dietary recommendations
- Stress and lifestyle management
- Targeted supplementation
- Gut healing treatments
- Medications such as Low-Dose Naltrexone
I would love to see if I can help you. If you want to get to the root causes of your autoimmunity, click on Schedule an Appointment to set up your free 20-minute phone consultation with me to see if this process is a good fit for you.
