If you have an autoimmune disease, something has caused your immune system to begin attacking your own tissues. It may be attacking the myelin sheath, thyroid, pancreas, your skin or another organ. No matter which part of the body is being attacked, the immune system is no longer functioning as it should, so you need to get it back under control in order to support your health.
Nutritional therapy looks at all the different systems in the body and rather than focusing on symptoms, it looks at identifying the underlying cause such as stress, viruses, food intolerance, gut health and lifestyle. When you have a clearer picture of what might have caused your illness, you can use that information to develop a plan to help you get back control of your health.
