Calming down the storm

Autoimmune conditions essentially means that your body mounts an immune response against itself. This is characterised by inflammation and destruction of body tissues by the body’s own immune system – commonly experienced as pain, swelling and a wide variety of symptoms depending upon what areas of the body are affected. Some common autoimmune conditions include,

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus (SLE)
  • Psoriasis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

There is a huge link between gut bacteria (microbiota), nutritional imbalances, dietary and lifestyle changes and the suppression of autoimmune symptoms and progression of these diseases.

At Macquarie Natural Health we are able to assist you with these changes.
