Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, ALS, Type 1 Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis….
What do they have in common?
Impaired immune function – meaning that something has caused the immune system to begin attacking organs or systems of the body, impairing normal body function.
The medical response is to shut down the immune system through the use of steroids, chemotherapy drugs and other harmful pharmaceutical substances. This approach is followed by a vast array of other drugs to combat the physical and mental symptomology of the dis-ease. Is this a “cure”? Not by a long shot! It isn’t even a good option of treatment in the estimation of this Practitioner.
The naturopathic response is to start by supporting the immune system, aiding the filtering organs of the body through gentle detoxification methods, dietary and lifestyle modification (which is usually what causes autoimmune disease in the first place), and targeted nutritional supplementation that will address the underlying nutritional deficiencies, compromised absorption and biochemical short-falls of the body. Doing all of these things helps to equip the body to repair and heal itself.
Many theories have surfaced that attribute the cause of autoimmune diseases to factors such as viruses, hormonal imbalances, oxidative stress, and trauma.
