What Is An Autoimmune Disorder?
Your body’s immune system is your innate ability to defend yourself against harmful bacteria and viruses that invade. But in order to target these foreign invaders properly, your body needs to be able to differentiate between them and your own cells.
Sometimes, a flaw in your immune system can cause your body to recognize its own cells as foreign invaders. When this happens, your immune system begins an attack on your own body, which can manifest itself in many different conditions.
Celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, lupus, and some types of arthritis are just a few of the many examples of autoimmune conditions.
Dr. Negin’s naturopathic treatments for autoimmune conditions may help bring your body back into balance so you can better manage these conditions.
Symptoms of Autoimmune Disease
If you’re experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from an autoimmune condition:
- Difficulty concentrating or clouded thinking
- Recurring rashes or hives
- Unexpected weight loss
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
- Thinning hair
- Joint or muscle pain
- Irregular heartbeat
- Abdominal pain
- Dry skin, eyes, or mouth
- Numbness or tingling in extremities
- Fertility issues
- Multiple miscarriages
Many of these symptoms are common to other diseases as well, so some autoimmune disorders are notoriously difficult to diagnose.
Contact Dr. Negin if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms. She can help you get to the bottom of what’s causing them and develop an individualized treatment plan for you.
Naturopathic Treatment For Digestive Issues
There is an intimate connection between the health of your gut and the health of your mind. We’re only now beginning to fully understand it, but poor gut health can actually cause depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.
Part of the reason for this is because of serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical neurotransmitter in your body which is connected to, among other things, your mood. Low serotonin levels are associated with depression, and because 90% of the serotonin in your body is produced in your digestive tract, this connection shouldn’t be surprising.
So not only can digestive issues cause you to have difficulty drawing nutrients from your food, it can also cause issues with your mental health.
Naturopathic treatments can be effective at improving the health of your digestive tract. Contact Dr. Negin today to find out more.
