Autoimmune illnesses result from an imbalance of the immune system. What all autoimmune disorders share is a base of inflammation and a highly disordered immune response which causes immune cells to attack one’s own tissues. We cannot ignore the potential causes: food allergies, toxicities, hormone imbalances, gut-related issues, and stress; however, suppression of the immune system is not the answer. At Clear Mind Integrative Health, our perspective is to take care of the whole organism and understand the interplay of factors that may have given rise to the immune disorder in the first place. A key area of the body that we work with is intestinal health; it becomes the primary focus and main regulator. We do not treat the diagnosis; our job is to eliminate the contributing factors in the terrain one by one.
