Autoimmune Diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Chronic Pain
This is a subject very close to my heart, particularly because of my compassion for my fellow human being. I see these syndromes or set of symptoms being mistreated or just "managed". No, Omega 3 , a magnesium powder and an adrenal tonic, is barely going to take the edge off!!! And, NO, leaky gut, is not the cause of your body's autoimmune behaviour, but is simply aggravating it by adding "fuel to the fire" ! Ouch! :(
And most importantly, this seems to affect those of us who have been under long term stress and caught in the cycle of over achieving.
we have to:
1. acknowledge the individual constitution and life story
2. with this information, then tailor an anti-inflammatory LIFESTYLE not just diet! but diet is also a big part.
3. switch off the immune system, or "normalise" the immune system with specialised homeopathics, herbals and nutrition.
Viruses such as epstein barre, ross river, cytomegalovirus, herpes complex of viruses, coxsackie, viral mumps and rubella, are all the trigger. Or a bad reaction to a vaccine. You may not even know you had any of these until you look for them. You would have just gotten a bad flu or virus, shakes, shivers, fever and bedridden for two weeks at least. Felt complete exhaustion and the exhaustion never went away.
Then, years later you are in pain and suffering from many mystery symptoms. And, unfortunately, doctors and even other natural health care practitioners, simply try and manage. or don't even fully acknowledge what is happening immunologically and biochemically to your body!
So a combination of stress, viruses and an acidic diet (meat, sugar, caffeine, tea, junk foods etc) at varying levels, creates an autoimmune behaviour which would have different levels of extremity in each individual.
I do not have an expensive "program" or products for this, I simply acknowledge you, in an in depth naturopathic consult and create the perfect treatment plan for you x
