Immune & Autoimmune Diseases

Our Immune system can work for us or against us.  An auto-immune disease involves a variety of factors, where the immune system has become imbalanced and in the case of autoimmunity,  triggers our immune system to attack its own tissues. 

Natural medicines, including herbal, mineral and nutritional treatments are effective to help dampen the immune response, reduce inflammation and provide symptomatic support, while we take a holistic approach to investigate the underlying cause/s that have led to your dysfunctional immune system, including hormone imbalances, toxin exposure, nutritional deficiencies, pathogens, poor diet, gut health and inflammation.

 

Your practitioner may require further testing to investigate potential triggers.
