Autoimmune diseases are a category of over 80 different diseases including multiple sclerosis, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s Disease, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
All autoimmune diseases have in common an immune system that has become dysfunctional and then mistakes your own body tissue as foreign. Any tissue in your body can be affected. These conditions have a profound effect on day-to-day quality of life and, unfortunately, the literature says that once you have one autoimmune condition you are more likely to develop others…unless you can successfully address and correct the underlying cause.
Conventional medicine does little for these conditions other than diagnosing the disease, palliating symptoms, suppressing the immune system, and monitoring as the disease progresses. You deserve a more effective approach that actually addresses the autoimmune process, that resets and heals your body’s systems, renews the whole you, and allows you to live life more fully.
Here at Healing Roots Natural Medicine, Dr. Erika Enos, ND, a registered Naturopathic Doctor in the state of Colorado, uses a multi-faceted approach to help you regain health and balance rather than suppress your immune system. To gain a full understanding of what this looks like, please read How do you get at the root cause? (The Process) which will be forthcoming. The process laid out there was specifically designed with patients diagnosed with autoimmune conditions in mind.
You can dive deeper into Dr. Enos’ approach with these videos:
- The Four Pillars of Treating Autoimmunity, presentation for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Scleroderma Foundation. This has a special focus on scleroderma but is full of information for any autoimmune condition.
- A Naturopathic Approach to Autoimmunity and Reducing Inflammation, a presentation for the Heartland Chapter of the National Scleroderma Foundation. Also filled with pearls for scleroderma but great for any autoimmune condition. It includes a general explanation of naturopathic training and philosophy in the first ten minutes.
