Autoimmune Disease

An autoimmune disease is a condition where the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. Autoimmune diseases can affect multiple organs, called “systemic”, or just one organ, referred to as “localized.” There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders – some of the most common types include rheumatoid arthritis, Celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, and Hashimoto’s.

Autoimmune Disease Treatment

Improving digestive function will help improve autoimmune disease conditions. Food elimination/reintroduction is the least expensive and most powerful therapeutic tool available. Often, we start treatment with a whole food, low glycemic load (low sugar/flour), phytonutrient dense diet. We also support proper nutrition to help calm immune response naturally, and improve gut health.
