Autoimmune Diseases

Our immune system is created to provide protection against enemies, such as viruses and bacteria. When a person has an autoimmune disease, our immune systems mistakenly target the body’s own cells and tissue. There is a long list of different autoimmune conditions, most commonly treated in endocrinology: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease, type 1 diabetes, and celiac disease. Depending on the organ affected, these conditions have different symptoms and require different treatment protocols. It is important to understand what they have in common: autoimmunity. All of them share similar common symptoms such as fatigue, body aches, and brain fog. Addressing the root cause of the problem, inflammation, often helps alleviate symptoms. Nutritional therapy is very important, with a focus on eating real food, and avoiding processed food and proinflammatory foods like sugar and gluten.
