Autoimmune Disease

23 million Americans suffer from Autoimmune diseases and while that number is already large it is possible that it could be as large as 50 million Americans.

This is because there are at least 80 different autoimmune-related diseases and conditions and only a small amount have been identified and studied. Autoimmune diseases are difficult to diagnose and treat, however here at Second Nature Naturopathic care we run extensive tests to help you diagnose those tricky diseases that others had trouble catching.

Estrogen and Autoimmune diseases. 

Fortunately for men, they may be protected from autoimmune conditions due to their higher levels of androgens like DHEA, testosterone and DHT. While estrogen on the other hand has the most varied impact on autoimmune disorders. Studies show that excess estrogen can actually aggravate symptoms and inflammation in patients Th2 predominant autoimmune conditions. However lower levels of estrogen and androgens in people with Th1 predominant autoimmune conditions causes inflammation and may also cause the disease to progress. 

Supporting Hormone Balance.

Vitamins that can aid in hormone balance and improve autoimmune disorders. 

Vitamin A which can help regulate the activity of estrogen. Vitamin B3, Vitamin D regulates the expression of hundreds of genes. Vitamin K2, Boron. 

Minerals like Iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium and zinc all support enzyme function. 

These vitamins and minerals may promote primary and local synthesis in the central nervous system, bones, lungs, skin and gastrointestinal system.

Not only do we offer vitamin and mineral course of treatments but we also over IV fluids that can include these vitamins, minerals and German biologics that can target the cause of your autoimmune disease.
