Robust Immunity & Taming Autoimmune Symptoms

Your immune system is designed to protect your body’s healthy cell tissues by attacking any viruses, bacteria, pathogens, or diseases that enter your body. Simply put, it’s what prevents you from getting sick, and also what helps you feel better if you do fall ill.

But, our systems can often be dis-regulated and over or under function.  Allergies and autoimmune diseases are examples of over functioning. An under functioning immune system can be where you get sick much more frequently than those around you.

We all need an immune system that is in balance, with just the right amount of defenses to keep us safe in this world of diseases, while not using its fire power to attack us.

Autoimmune diseases and allergies are an immune system that is confused, with your body’s defense systems  working against itself. If left untreated, serious long term medical issues may occur.

 

There are hundreds of autoimmune illnesses, each of which have their own unique set of symptoms. Symptoms of Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases can include depression, fluctuations in weight, difficulty sleeping, and anxiety. Celiac Disease manifests itself through digestive problems, neurological issues including depression, rashes, and the sudden loss of control of your body’s movements. Those suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis will often notice symmetric joint pain and swelling, especially of the wrists and hands.
