‘Mistaken Identity’
What is an autoimmune disease? It is when the immune system, the body’s natural self-defence system, starts to recognise the body’s own healthy tissues as foreign.

The Eternal Flame -
Inflammation in latin means to ‘light a fire’; Inflammation is a protective response intended to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury along with necrotic cells and tissue resulting from the original insult. ‘Inflammation accomplishes its protective mission by diluting, destroying, or otherwise neutralising harmful agents (e.g., microbes and toxins). It then sets into motion the events that eventually heal and repair the sites of injury’. Inflammation is usually found at the site of an injury or infection however in autoimmune disease - the bodies own defence system starts attacking itself. The result create chaos and havoc to our entire system - becoming stuck in an eternal flame pattern of fight or flight response.

Common Early onset Signs of Autoimmune conditions - 

  • Fatigue

  • Joint pain and swelling

  • Skin problems

  • Abdominal pain or digestive issues

  • Recurring fever

  • Numbness in the hands and feet

  • Hair loss

  • Swollen glands and immune depletion

  • Much more - Can be signs of early development 

Homeopathy's approach to supporting YOU! 
Are you affected by an autoimmune condition both emotionally and physically? How does this affected on a daily basis? What supports your healing journey? What emotions come up in your body? Where is the pain, what is the sensation of your pain? These are some of the questions I may ask you in clinic, it is about YOU and how YOU are affected rather than the label - Homeopathy support the whole person - Homeopathic consultations give you the space to truly feel heard and been seen. Homeopathy hears and sees you, all of you. Signs can be LOUD or very subtle - Homeopathy wants to hear them all and give them a place to be heard

Feeling 'healthy' is not solely the absence of ill health or disease - it is being able to adapt to our surroundings in state of homeostasis whilst ‘able to express our emotions’. Dealing with AI conditions, flares and emotional difficulties can feel frustrating at times.

Lifestyle factors - 
 
Did you know ‘leaky gut’ syndrome is said to be one factor relating to inflammation, autoimmune reactions and allergies.
In general a healthy balanced diet, which removes individual’s food triggers, will contribute to reducing inflammation in the body. As is gentle exercise (depending on mobility, swimming, walking or even HIT), stress (work place and in the home), environmental factors and pollutants. all play a part in our health and wellbeing.
