The primary function of the immune system is to protect the body by attacking invading microorganisms, such as viruses or bacteria. But what happens when the body mistakenly identifies healthy cells as invaders?
When immune cells make a mistake and attack the cells that they are meant to protect, autoimmunity occurs, and your body reacts by creating inflammation in the form of symptoms that can range from eczema to bloating. For many of my clients, this is also connected to exacerbation of conditions such as pelvic pain, endometriosis or fibroids.
There are over 100 different types of autoimmune diseases, such as:
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Graves' disease
- Hashimoto's thyroiditis
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Ulcerative colitis
If you’re looking for ways to improve your health, and want to learn more about how you can get to the root cause of your autoimmune disorder, enroll in this course!
There isn’t just one leading cause of all autoimmune disorders, but it has been found that certain factors like diet and gut health play an important role in symptom development. This means that there are steps you can take in your daily life to reduce flare-ups and improve your overall health.
Functional medicine professionals are trained in the art of addressing the underlying causes of chronic disease. Conventional medicine, on the other hand, is designed to identify symptoms of illness. When managing autoimmune diseases, hidden allergens, infections, environmental toxins, an inflammatory diet, and stress often contribute to these inflammatory conditions and need to be addressed.
In this course, we will discuss various types of autoimmune diseases, the causes, and lifestyle changes that can help to reduce symptoms. You will be better equipped to understand autoimmune disease, environmental triggers, and the link between the gut and immune health.
More and more people are discovering that for real relief, it’s vital to identify the cause of symptoms to help the body heal itself naturally. The solutions we have to share are for long-term relief, unlike methods that merely mask symptoms.
My goal is to provide you with reliable information about autoimmune diseases and offer the support you need to identify and appropriately address the cause of your recurring symptoms effectively!
