The Autoimmune Disease Series
I am sorry for the late posting this week. It has been an exciting one for me because I have just been accepted for a scholarship with The Hashimoto’s Institute, Clinician Training Program.
Before you dismiss this post, saying that your autoimmune disease is a different one, be aware that in the cases of autoimmune diseases the body is under attack from itself and just because it happens to be attacking one particular organ or area of your body, doesn’t mean that it won’t move somewhere else. There can be a huge overlap of symptoms between the different autoimmune diseases, so it is important to be aware of what symptoms may arise.
For Hashimoto’s we see that symptoms can include:
- weight gain.
- hair loss, including thinning of the outer third of the eyebrows.
- feeling more sensitive to the cold.
- poor concentration.
- dry skin, nails, and hair.
- muscle soreness.
- heavy Periods
The great news is that with my clinician training I will be able to support you with new ideas for testing, look at infection protocols, tissue regeneration suggestions etc. I will be learning from some of the best in their field: Dr. Alan Christianson, NMD (The Doctor), Dr. Izabella Wentz, PharmD, FASCP (the Pharmacist) – and Andrea Nakayama, CNE, CNC (the Nutritionist ). I have been following them for some time now, reading their work and watching their progress and I am therefore so excited to have been awarded this scholarship and the opportunity of working with them.
There are so many of you looking for someone who can help you piece together what is going on in your body. This training will help me to gain a much more specific understanding for those of you who have this disease. However, through my nutritional training, I believe that the protocols that I will learn will very much support all autoimmune work that I do.
Watch this space as I will be sharing more of what I learn on this course with you over the coming weeks.
The course also offers question and answer session, so if you have any issues that you would like answers to fire away in the comment box below!
