IMMUNE HEALTH
Reoccurring inflammation in the body, ongoing colds and flus, fungal infections, cancer, frequent herpes outbreaks, shingles and UTI’s, are all signs of a weak immune system.

The skin is often the body’s first line of defence and common skin aliments such as eczema, psoriasis and acne are things that tell us that something else is happening within the body that requires our attention. The immune system is our defence against internal and external pathogens and there are clinically proven methods to strengthen it.

Autoimmune conditions are when the body develops an abnormal immune response and starts to attack healthy cells. They can develop when we least expect it and do so usually at a time when the body is under additional stress. These diseases often have multiple triggers including genetics, environment and lifestyle. Its important to bear in mind those who have a predisposition to these diseases via their genetics still have the opportunity to experience relief from symptoms. Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease, celiac and lupus can all go into remission with the correct environment and treatment. Lupus (SLE) is a condition I have a particular interest in, if you wold like to know more about my ongoing work with Lupus please contact me.

As a naturopath I initially aim to address the symptoms you are experiencing and provide some relief from them. Ongoing treatment is aimed at addressing underlying causes of disease in order to give sustained relief. A healthy and well functioning immune system is critical. Treating the underlying cause of the disease will help bring the body back into harmony and provide you with the quality of life you deserve.

LYME AND LYME-LIKE ILLNESSES
Lyme disease is an infectious illness caused by the bacterium known as Borrelia, which creates a condition more correctly known as Borreliosis or Lyme Borreliosis.

The bacteria, a spirochete, is transmitted when an individual is bitten by a vector usually a tick.  Lyme disease can impact many bodily systems and organs and can, in some cases, mimic other illnesses ie lupus.

People with Lyme disease are frequently diagnosed with other co-infections and illnesses caused by vector-borne bacteria and parasites such as Babesia, Bartonella, Rickettsia, Mycoplasma and Ehrlichia. We thank the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation for their list of symptoms.

The name ‘Lyme disease’ was coined in the United States of America when an outbreak of juvenile arthritis occurred in the town of Lyme, Connecticut, and the outbreak was subsequently found to be caused by the Borrelia bacteria.

The diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and its associated illnesses and co-infections can be very complex and few Australian doctors are trained in managing this condition.
