“The Immune System Recovery Plan” aims to identify and cure the cause of illness, personalize your treatment and help you to get better.
Autoimmune diseases are considered by the allopathic community to be incurable, life-long illnesses to be managed with various pharmaceuticals including painkillers, muscle relaxants, steroids and anxiolytics. Everything is done to suppress and stop the immune system, with the underlying thought that the immune system is not functioning correctly.
Most autoimmune diseases such as celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythmatous (SLE), Raynaud’s disease, scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), atopic dermatitis (eczema), and psoriasis are the result of an over-accumulation of toxins in multiple body tissues and organ systems. Exposure to toxins found in our food and environment, along with various yeasts and bacterial toxins found in our intestinal tract, not to mention increased consumption of sugar in all forms may lead to system wide dysfunctions that ultimately cause the body’s immune system to attack itself.
Naturopaths like myself, believe that RA and all other autoimmune diseases are a symptom of a modern lifestyle and genetic weaknesses. Making the pain or symptoms go away without addressing the underlying root of the immune confusion will give your body cause and effect to bring you another autoimmune disease. And so it is, someone with an auto-immune disease tends to get another auto-immune disease and possibly more.
What is needed to prevent the immune system from making these errors? Simply eliminate from the body those things that are causing the immunity confusion. Inflammation is an underlying theme in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. Sources of inflammation include poor blood sugar regulation, underlying chronic infections, chronically elevated cortisol and insulin, heavy metal and other toxic burdens, food sensitivities, and unnecessary body fat – all of which are considered when creating short term and long term treatment plans.
