Autoimmune Disorders

A healthy immune system protects you from invaders like bacteria. If your immune system malfunctions, it may trigger an autoimmune disorder by mistakenly attacking and destroying healthy tissues.   

Some of the most common autoimmune disorders include multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and psoriasis.

There are several causes of autoimmune disorders including a genetic predisposition, medications, smoking, exposure to toxins, obesity, and infections. Women have a much higher likelihood to have an autoimmune disorder.

More and more individuals are finding successful treatment with complementary medicines and procedures. Naturopathic care, herbs, acupuncture, hypnosis, and chiropractic treatments are alternatives to traditional corticosteroids, anti-inflammatories, and painkillers.

Lifestyle plays a big role in treatment and prevention. Avoiding toxins, eating a healthy diet (limiting processed foods), exercising, managing your stress, and not smoking are important steps towards taking care of yourself.

For help managing your autoimmune disorder, contact a healthcare professional in your area.
