Working with people who have MS is an important focus for me in my nutrition counseling practice because I have it … or perhaps I should say I use to have it. I have been off all medications for years and have been symptom free for a very long time.

There are many different diagnoses’ that fall into the category of “auto-immune”: R/A, lupus, multiple sclerosis, Grave’s, inflammatory bowel disease (colitis), diabetes, hypothyroidism, psoriasis, to name just a few. There are now hundreds of conditions that are classified as autoimmune diseases – all of which can cause debilitating symptoms and have a huge impact on your quality of life.
Education is the first step in tackling a deeply rooted condition like autoimmune. You may find it helpful to read my primer for new clients who are afflicted with an autoimmune disease, “A Primer on Autoimmune Disease”.
Emerging science and research is starting to prove that the underlying cause of nearly all autoimmune conditions is one or more of the following: bacteria overgrowth, environmental toxins, allergens, stress and poor diet.
No one can ever promise that you will be “cured” from your condition, but given the right amount of determination and time, you can change your cellular communication that puts the autoimmune response in remission. I have worked with many clients who have experienced noticeable, consistent improvements just during the first 3 to 6 months.
By working together, we can get your internal systems re-balanced, get your immune system re-engaged and improve your overall health status.
