Autoimmune conditions are varied and complex and may be silent for decades before being diagnosed. What is quite concerning is the increase in diagnosed autoimmune cases. Currently it is estimated that 1 in 20 people in Australia and New Zealand suffer from an autoimmune condition. Women are more susceptible than men, raising the question of whether hormones play a role.
Recent scientific developments have indicated the following as possible contributors or triggers to developing an autoimmune condition:
- Toxic metals and chemicals
- Viral and bacterial infections
- Gut flora imbalances
- Dietary components
- Nutrient deficiencies
Frequency therapy has shown to be beneficial in alleviating viral and bacterial infections. It also supports the elimination of toxins including heavy metals and chemicals. Functional pathology is available to identify specific intolerances, sensitivities or allergies to foods or their components.
All autoimmune conditions involve elevated levels of inflammation as well as immune ‘confusion’. By identifying what is fuelling the inflammation and disrupting your immune system, symptoms may be resolved.
Don’t become another autoimmune statistic – sometimes even small changes to your daily life can achieve big results. Arrange an appointment today and call 07 5530 1863.
