Autoimmune conditions are characterized by an inappropriate inflammatory reaction by the body’s immune system against the body itself.  Diseases of this sort include Arthritis, Diabetes, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis), Multiple Sclerosis, Sjögren’s Syndrome, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, and Thyroiditis.

With specialties in autoimmune conditions, It’s been found that the same factors that contribute to thyroid system imbalance can lead to autoimmune conditions.  It is extremely important with any autoimmune condition to evaluate the health of the thyroid and adrenal glands.  Similarly, with any thyroid system imbalance, thyroiditis and other autoimmune issues must be ruled out.

Our naturopathic doctors have treated patients with autoimmune conditions that have been detected by a thorough naturopathic evaluation, in addition to those that have been previously diagnosed.
