For a long time, Naturopathic Practitioners have thought there was a link between certain infections and auto-immune diseases such as Hashimoto’s (Thyroid disease), Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other auto-immune diseases.

Research is now proving this theory ……..

Australian scientists have shed new light into how some autoimmune diseases can take hold, identifying the exact conditions under which an infection can prompt the body to attack itself. Sydney’s Garvan Institute of Medical Research found the antibody-creating B cells may play a crucial role in the body’s response to disease.

To increase your immune function and help prevent infections or to treat viral and bacterial infections and auto-immune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroid disease, consult your Naturopathic Practitioner.
