  • Natural Medicine Causes Treatment of Autoimmune Disease

    Autoimmune diseases result from the failure of an organism to recognise its own constituent parts as self, which allows an immune response against its own cells & tissues. The immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen & attacks it. In other words, the body actually attacks its own cells.

  • A Naturopathic Consultation is holistic and assesses the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. For example from a Western Medical Perspective you may be medically diagnosed with hypothyroidism however, from a Naturopathic Medical Perspective your diagnosis might be;

    Practitioner

    • Decreased Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) due to "Functional Hypothyroid"
    • Poor breakdown of fats and increased visceral adiposity due to a "Sluggish Liver".
    • Excess cravings for carbohydrates due to “Insulin Resistance” and "Functional Hypoglycemia"
    • Long term stress leading to "Adrenal Exhaustion", cortisol spikes and resultant weight gain
    • Long term stress leading to “Nervous System Exhaustion” and emotional eating
    • Nutritional deficiencies of Iodine, EFAs, selenium
    • Excess Bioaccumulation of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) such as fluoride, aluminium and  BPA leading to a disruption of thyroid hormone production. 

    Thus

    • Tonify the thyroid to boost BMR

    • Balance blood sugar
    • Tonify the adrenal gland
    • Nourish the nervous system
