Autoimmunity & Inflammation

ARE YOU AT WAR WITH YOUR OWN BODY?

Reduce the inflammation that aggravates and flares your autoimmune symptoms.

Treat your Autoimmune Disease

ADDISON’S DISEASE:

Affecting the adrenal gland. Here immune cells damage the outer layer of the adrenal gland, resulting in reduced production of steroid hormones.

Reverse symptoms such as  fatigue, muscle weakness, and loss of appetite.

Multiple Sclerosis

Where the protective layers of nerves, called myelin, is targeted by the immune system. Myelin is found across the body’s nervous system, protecting nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It helps maintain an effective transmission of electrical impulses across the body. People with multiple sclerosis end up with myelin depleted nerves, which don’t function properly.

 

Symptoms include poor motor control (e.g. difficulties walking, talking, or even breathing), fatigue, bladder and bowel dysfunction and neurological symptoms.

Grave's Disease

Affecting the thyroid. Here, antibodies produced by the immune system (B cells) simulate a hormone called Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. As a result, the thyroid gland is stimulated to produce an excessive amount of the thyroid hormone.


Symptoms include insomnia, tremors, and hyperactivity.

Celiac Disease

Triggered by gluten proteins. Whenever gluten enters the body, the immune system mounts an attack, which usually damages the outer layer of the small intestine, particularly damaging the villi, a tiny hair-like structure responsible for nutrient absorption.


Symptoms include anaemia, bloating and flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation, fatigue, anemia, and many other conditions.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Where immune cells attack the tissue surrounding joints, eventually leading to damage to the actual joints.


Symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness and heat in the joints, and persistent mental and physical tiredness.

Other Systemic Autoimmune Diseases
  • Lupus, which affects the skin, joints, heart, lungs and nervous system
  • Scleroderma, which affects the tissue under the skin
  • Chron’s Disease, which affects the GI tract
  • Psoriasis, which is an inflammatory skin condition
  • Hypothyroidism, which affects the hormones
  • Osteoarthritis, which is a chronic joint disease
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, which prevents the thyroid gland from producing hormones
