What is Autoimmune Disease?
Dr. Kamau Kokayi is a holistic doctor that treats the autoimmune disorders that are now so common. He has long studied these debilitating conditions, diseases that are robbing people like you of a satisfying, pain-free, fatigue-free life. This is important because the autoimmune disease is on the rise, but traditional medicine has not made a lot of progress in researching the causes of these disorders.
Dr. K. combines his 30+ years of holistic medical experience with his training in modern medical science to develop therapies for conditions such as scleroderma, lupus, thyroiditis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, and encephalitis. Dr. Kokayi gets at the root causes of these conditions and coordinates treatment plans that will allow you to live a fuller life, as he works to diminish, or even eliminate your debilitating symptoms.
What is the autoimmune disease? It’s when your body is attacking itself as if it has a disease, even though it doesn’t. Some autoimmune conditions, according to eastern medicine, stem from having a bodily system that becomes inflamed because of deep conflict. Other practitioners look more to environmental factors or diet.
Conflicting energy is not dealt with properly in western thinking and becomes a constant presence in our thoughts and lives. Am I going to succeed? Fail? Should I eat this food or that food? Am I a good or a bad person. This stress, combined with a poor diet, causes inflammation to set in. Celiac disease is definitely one of those autoimmune disorders that is a functional response to diet and is a condition that responds very well to holistic treatments.
Part of a successful autoimmune therapy is identifying the root sources of conflict that are draining the body of its energy. A secondary cause of autoimmune disorders is environmental, the toxins that are so prevalent in the processed foods we eat, the goods we use in our homes and offices and our diets which often are gluten-heavy, that it affects the balance of gut flora.
How Does Dr. Kokayi Treat Autoimmune Diseases?
Dr. Kokayi has developed unique therapies that can block the receptors that activate autoimmune responses and causes them to cascade throughout your entire system. He does so without using extreme measures, such as the use of steroids, that have serious side effects.
He treats patients with rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disorder affects your joints and can also cause inflammation of the eyes, skin, lungs or heart and blood system. The lining of the joints can be hard to treat with traditional medicine. However, there are a number of holistic treatments that can increase blood flow and reduce this inflammation. Acupuncture is one such treatment. It frees up the flow of blood and energy to the joints and other troubled areas, and provides healing at a deep level, inside the joint cavity.
Another very serious disorder, multiple sclerosis, can be treated through holistic medicine. When you have MS, your immune system attacks the myelin sheath, a protective cover on the nerve fibers. This can block effective communication between the brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the nerves may deteriorate. The most important thing to do is to help the T cells to stay calm and not trigger inflammation. Also, diet can help to keep the myelin intact.
According to Dr. K, it’s important to live in a state of calm and promote a sense of peace and health throughout your entire system, to avoid inflammation when you have any kind of autoimmune disease. When your system is not being “triggered,” it is easier to diagnose what the root cause of the condition is. His therapies are designed to support you on that journey of promoting your own health in all ways, mentally, emotionally and physically.
As a lupus therapy, and for all other autoimmune conditions, Healing Health has the holistic and herbal remedies, acupuncture, and IV therapy of high dose vitamin C, to put you on a path back to healing and health.
