Is pain, weight, infertility, fatigue or disease affecting your life quality? Statistics show 1 in 20 Australians are affected by autoimmune disease. Could you be at risk?
We hear the word ‘epidemic’ a lot in terms of health and we know that as a global population we are battling with pain, fatigue, disease, weight and obesity, but what if there’s more going on beneath these surface symptoms? An autoimmune disease can develop in any system of the body, the symptoms can be varied or even random, ranging from headaches, aches and pains, constant infections and flus, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, infertility, poor memory or physical signs such as weight gain or hair loss.
The most commonly diagnosed autoimmune diseases are thyroid issues such as Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and type I diabetes. Known risk factors are in some part genetic, though exacerbated by a hyperactive immune system triggered by chemical, food or environment toxins, combined with stress, inflammation, or virus. There are other common risk factors that are completely preventable, such as vitamin and mineral deficiency, or an incorrect diet for your body type and ancestry.
Autoimmune disease is occurring more often in women, affecting 1 in 20 people, and sufferers are increasingly developing multiple diseases.
Focusing on the underlying commonality between your symptoms and a thorough investigation of what your triggers may be, we are able to stop the progression of an autoimmune disease before it’s too late, and reduce multiple disease processes. Autoimmune disease does not have to be a life sentence. Our integrative practitioners conduct comprehensive testing and screening for food sensitivities, check for bacterial or viral pathogens and determine nutritional deficiencies along with hormone levels. Correct identification helps to remove the current triggers, resolving your symptoms quickly, and stabilising the disease. Don’t let it rule your health for the rest of your life.
