Autoimmune Diseases and Herbal Treatments

Do you or a loved one suffer from Crohn’s disease or celiac disease?  Maybe you have a child who is hyperactive or shows mild signs of autism?  Many of today’s common illnesses have been directly linked to a poor or failing immune system.  There are many alternative treatments being explored for these illnesses;  herbal treatment is just one area.

As a certified herbalist with family and friends who suffer from some of these diseases, I have been researching herbal treatments, along with diet and other recommendations.  This is information I am willing to share, along with new information as I discover it along the way.

In our world of fast food restaurants, pre-packaged convenience foods, canned and instant foods, it’s no wonder  these types of illnesses have become so widespread.

I am going to attempt to show you ways to improve your health and the health of those you love by making small changes in your diet, using herbs, and other alternatives.

Please join me on this journey.  I will be posting at least once a week with tidbits of information.  We can all learn together!

    Thank you for creating this website. I have it bookmarked. I want to learn as much as I can.

    I believe we were originally given natural treatments, medicines, and health giving substances through fruits, vegetables, grains, etc., along with various herbs, other plants (some now called weeds) and the environment (sunshine, fresh air, fresh water).

    Much has been lost, both knowledge of how to use all that there is both from pollution and man’s obsession with ‘dandelion’ free lawns, etc.

    Thank you again for this informative website.

    Best wishes,

    Eileen

      Thanks for your kind words Eileen. I agree that we have been provided with what we need, for the most part, to live healthy, happy lives and that much of that knowledge has been lost or perverted in some way. Weeds are, by the way, my favorite flowers! I will look forward to hearing from you again.

    I couldn’t agree with you any more than I do! I have friends with auto immune disease that have found great success with herbs,essential oils, and the auto immune diet. It’s hard, but so worth it. Keep up the good work!

    I have read so many articles or reviews regarding the
    blogger lovers but this piece of writing is really a fastidious paragraph, keep
    it up.

    My husband has celiac and I’m dairy intolerant. We have great immune systems. But I would be interested in learning more about what we could incorporate to better our health still. What would you specifically recommend?

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your comment Sarah. I will be discussing your questions in future posts. Right now I will just say that my advice to everyone regarding what they can do for better health and diseases classified as autoimmune disease is to eat WHOLE FOODS!!! If it comes in a box, package, or can – leave it at the grocery store. Fresh is best, and then comes frozen.

    Hi Debby, I have a friend who’s been suffering from eczema for a long time. Are there any herbal remedies that could work for this kind of disease? Thank you.

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your question Cathy. I do not have a commercial formula that I can recommend to you at this time; however, I have issues with eczema/psoriasis myself. I find that a healthier diet with whole foods helps with a lot of these type symptoms of autoimmune illness. I have also used tumeric root as it has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. I have actually mixed it with coconut oil and applied it to my skin – it stains everything yellow, so put on old clothes, lol.
      But, as I have stated before, be sure you check with your physician or health professional before you try anything new to be sure you don’t have reactions with other medicines, etc. I am working on a post related to diet and autoimmune disease so stay tuned! Thanks again, Debby
