At Native Sun Nutrition in Las Vegas, we understand how difficult it can be to live with an autoimmune disease, which is why we want to help you get to the root cause and put you on the path to true healing. 

Instead of medicating the symptoms, we want to learn about you and empower you to transform your health and experience the full enjoyment of life. You can accomplish this by naturally addressing the root of your autoimmune disease.

The Nature of Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune disease means the body is attacking itself in an attempt to protect itself. This also means lots of painful inflammation. This can be triggered by viruses, fungi, bacteria, toxins, physical trauma, and chronic nutrient deficiencies. Anything that can cause necrosis (cell death) can trigger autoimmune disease.

Using rheumatoid arthritis as an example, inflammation occurs in the joints. Sensing something’s wrong, the immune system attacks joint tissue, mistaking it as the enemy and putting you in a lot of pain. The thing is your immune system isn’t the enemy; it’s the cellular debris in your joints. 

When your body gets overwhelmed by the amount of debris, it loses the ability to differentiate between healthy tissue and debris, so it attacks everything in sight. Taking immunosuppressants or anti-inflammatories in hopes of getting your immune system to behave won’t correct the real underlying problem. 

What needs to be determined and dealt with is what is causing the Necrosis that is leading to this response and addressing that issue i.e. pathogens, toxins, etc. (from viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic, trauma, toxins, smoking).

Functional Medicine and Autoimmune Disease

Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from these completely preventable lifestyle induced disease processes. Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and multiple sclerosis.

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
