7 Steps for Healing Autoimmune Disease

Plant Based Hormones

Autoimmune diseases include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, and others.

Autoimmune conditions are due to a runaway immune response also known as systemic inflammation that results in your body attacking its own tissues.

The answer to eliminating autoimmune conditions is to find and eliminate the causes of inflammation in your diet and environment.

By identifying and treating the underlying causes of inflammation, it is possible to regain vibrant health.

7 Steps To Cool the Fires of Inflammation:

  1. Ask your Functional Medicine doctor to identify food allergens with IgE and IgG food testing and eliminate the food allergens. (gluten, dairy and soy are the worst)
  2. Check for hidden infections – bacteria, yeast, viruses, Lyme with the help of your doctor, and treat the infections. (Genova Comprehensive Stool Analysis)
  3. Get checked for heavy metal toxicity through a Genova labs (Comprehensive Urine Element Profile) and follow a heavy metal detox program, if necessary.
  4. Check for intestinal dysbiosis (leaky gut syndrome) through a Genova Diagnostic Stool Analysis test and follow a gut repair program.
  5. Take EPA/DHA fish oil, vitamin D and probiotics to help calm your immune response.
  6. Follow an exercise program that you love.
  7. Check your hormone levels (cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) through a DUTCH test and find a relaxation technique to reduce your stress.

If you find and treat the underlying causes of your illness, you will begin to experience vibrant health once more.
