What is auto immune?
Auto immune disease can happen to the body when the immune system reacts to itself, or to its own inflammatory process. Auto immune diseases have tripled in the last 10 years. In women, they now total more than breast and heart disease combined. 24 million Americans have a form of autoimmune disease.
How can I treat it naturally?
The body is wise and trying to convey to you, using the language of “symptoms”, that something you are doing is not agreeing with it. Dr. Wells will help figure out what your body is saying and correct the problems. Dr. Wells will first determine the underlying cause(s), clean up your diet and lifestyle. She may start with food intolerance testing, heavy metals testing, urinary amino acids, detox profile, or whatever testing is needed to find the cause(s). Testing is not always needed, yet it can be very valuable information. Once the cause for dis-ease in your body is unveiled, treatment can begin.
How long before I feel better?
Every patient is unique and healing happens faster for some than others. Treatment protocols for patients with autoimmune conditions can take up to 6 months to 12 months. The time depends on the patients commitment to healing. If detoxification is needed, doing this over a long period of time is safer and easier. After the first changes are made, however, most notice improvements within a week or two.
What’s involved in natural treatment?
Dr. Wells may recommend you change your diet, exercise routine, take therapeutic level of supplements. All treatment is specific to you. Dr. Wells will educate you as to what you need to get to the root of the health issue, and support the body with exactly what it needs to heal. If chronic viruses or heavy metal toxicity is found to be the root cause, IV nutrient therapy or chelation may be needed.
