Autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy cells. These diseases may take many forms; from allergies to impaired adrenal and thyroid function. In some cases the body may be hyper-responsive to an external stimulus, such as certain foods or medicines, or environmental ones such as dust and climate. In others, the body may merely attack itself with no such external demands placed upon it. Traditional Western medicine tends to default to treating the symptoms on display, for instance allergies with steroids, or hormone replacement medication with dysfunctional glands. At Harmony, our holistic approach is focused on treating the root cause of the disease.
