Hearing that you have an autoimmune disorder can be overwhelming, and often your first thoughts are that your life is going to change in so many ways. After all, it already has since you started feeling sick, and the flareups began. And while this is true in some aspects, it’s not true in many ways.
Autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto's Disease, Psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease, or Ulcerative colitis don’t necessarily mean that you’ll suffer for the rest of your life. You can begin doing many things right now that will help eliminate joint pain, inflammation, and constant sickness. And you will even aid in the healing of your body as well. There are a number of reasons why you’re suffering from an autoimmune disorder, and genetics is one of them. But genetics alone isn’t the cause. There are many genetic disorders that we are predetermined to get, but when our bodies are functioning properly, it’s able to keep them away.
Our poor diets are the number one cause of many health-related issues, including autoimmune diseases.
Most of our diets consist of high amounts of sugar and overly processed foods. These are filled with toxins causing nutrient and vitamin deficiencies. Infections are another cause of autoimmune disorders. It’s essential that you find out what the root cause of your autoimmune disorder is so that you can begin the healing process.
Most likely, you’ve been to your traditional doctor already, and they’ve likely prescribed you some medications to help you gain control over your symptoms. But medication alone isn’t going to provide you with the relief that you desire. It’s actually only going to mask the situation and possibly make it worse.
At The Natural Health Improvement Center, we want to uncover what caused the problem, and we’ll do this by taking the time to learn everything that we need to learn in order to develop a personalized plan based on your body’s specific needs. We’ll ask questions pertaining to your symptoms, medical history, lifestyle, and diet. It’s likely that we’ll run some tests to find out what nutrients you are lacking and if your hormone levels are good. These things all play a part in the healing process.
When we provide our bodies with the things that it lacks we aid in the healing process. This means changing your diet to reduce the amount of toxins that you intake, adding herbal and nutritional supplements to ensure your body is getting what it needs, and helping it to absorb what it needs properly.
Treating the symptoms of your autoimmune disorder alone isn’t going to give you relief.
Taking medications only masks the issues and leads to additional symptoms that otherwise could’ve been avoided. This isn’t to say that medication isn’t sometimes necessary, but using it as the first line or only line of defense isn’t the answer.
