Naturopathic Approach to Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune conditions are characterised by an imbalance of the immune system. While they cannot be cured, it is possible to decrease symptoms significantly, slow the progression and improve a person’s quality of life by bringing the immune system back into balance, as well as decreasing inflammation in the body. Diet and lifestyle interventions, as well as evidence based herbal and nutritional supplementation are very effective in helping to decrease inflammation within the body, as well as providing the body with the correct nutrients that help to rebalance the immune system. Our immune health is also closely linked with the composition of our gut bacteria due to the fact that 80% of our immune cells are located in our gut and communicate with our gut bacteria. Our gut bacteria composition is also highly influenced by our diet and lifestyle habits.

Standard treatment for autoimmune conditions usually involves steroid drugs and immunosuppressants, which decreases inflammation, however they come with a whole host of serious side effects that can really affect a person’s quality of life and don’t address the underlying causes of immune dysfunction. While they may be necessary at times, it is still important to decrease inflammation in the body via adjusting diet and lifestyle habits, as well as supporting healthy immune function/balance. By doing this, the individual may be able to decrease the dose of their medication or maybe even come off of it.
