Autoimmune disorders have become more and more common in today’s society. In many cases, these disorders are linked back to severe inflammation in the body, which in turn can be related to diet, genetic mutations, environmental toxins, and hormone imbalances. Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis are just a few of the Autoimmune Disorders our practitioners are well versed in treating.
Individuals on the Autism spectrum are particularly sensitive to what they ingest, what is in the air they breathe, and what is absorbed topically. These factors can greatly impact their ability to communicate, focus, and interact on a daily basis. Finding the specific dietary and environmental triggers for an Autistic individual is just as important as finding the elements that put them at ease and nourish their bodies and minds.
What we eat directly effects our body’s hormone production. Inflammation, genetic mutations, and nutrient deficiencies can often trigger an imbalance, leading to difficulty conceiving and recurrent miscarriage in women. Changing diet and eliminating endocrine disruptors can have a positive effect on the ability to conceive and carry a healthy child to term.
High inflammatory response can lead to painful or debilitating PMS or PMDD. Hormone imbalance due to diet, environmental toxins, leaky gut, and nitrite the deficiencies can also impact the symptoms of menopause and their severity. PCOS and Endometriosis are two common issues we see tied to diet, inflammation, and hormone imbalance.
An all too common diagnosis in school age children, ADHD is often diagnosed at a very young age. Diet directly impacts the inflammatory response and triggers of brain waves, and discovering which foods or environmental factors impact a child with ADHD can make a huge change in their ability to focus.
MTHFR is a genetic mutation with several variances. Nearly 60% of the population has at least one variance of the MTHFR mutation. A mutation on this strand of DNA impacts the body’s ability to produce a correct MTHFR enzyme, which can lead to a cascade of detrimental health events. Learning how to properly care for your body based on whether you have an MTHFR mutation, or which mutation you have, can be critical in achieving optimal health.
Anxiety & Depression
Recent research is showing that anxiety and depression are firmly linked to the health of the gut. Intestinal permeability, Candida overgrowth, and nutritional deficiencies can alter the ways in which the brain synapses communicate with one another, as well as delineating the endocrine system, leading to a misproduction and miscommunication of hormones.
Celic Disease & Food Allergies
Learning to make the necessary adjustments of living with food allergies can be daunting. Our practitioners can not only guide you in discovering which foods are triggering inflammation in your body, but they will also assist you in finding ways in which to change your diet so that you never feel you’re missing out. This includes finding substations, as well as meal planning.
Asthma & Seasonal Allergies
Once thought to be unrelated to the food we eat, asthma and seasonal allergies have now been shown to be related to food allergies and intolerances. Discovering these links and removing the offending triggers can lead to a lessening of symptoms, increasing your quality of life.
A hyper- or hypo-functioning thyroid can lead to a cascade of hormonal imbalance, weight gain, and chronic fatigue. Our practitioners are well versed both in thyroid autoimmune such as Hashimoto’s and Graves, as well as subclinical hypothyroid issues that often go undiagnosed by conventional practices. Frequently rooted in diet and food allergies, many thyroid issues can be lessened by simple dietary and lifestyle changes.
