Are you suffering with an autoimmune disorder?
Gas, Constipation, Acid Reflux?
The first thing to understand about autoimmune diseases is that they come from a gut dysfunction, commonly called, "Leaky Gut "
Autoimmune disease affects 23.5 million Americans, and nearly 80 percent of those are women.

Our own Health Coach Testimonial
When it comes to being in a dark place in life, facing the demons of an autoimmune disease, Michelle Scogna knows this all too well… You wouldn’t know that from looking at her today. Michelle is living-proof that you can reverse your autoimmune condition too! Her story is really inspiring:
“I was on Rheumatoid Arthritis medication for 10 years and was feeling worse. I remember going to the doctor’s office and instead of getting answers or feeling better, they would prescribe me more medications. It was sheer frustration that pushed me to find the answers and naturally reclaim my health. I have now been off my RA medication for a 10 years!”

Understanding the Autoimmune System
In conventional medicine there are no cures for autoimmune diseases. What this means: there are no traditional ways or pills for the cure, only ways to manage the symptoms. Many of these diseases have similar symptoms, which makes them very difficult to diagnose. On top of that, managing the symptoms typically involves harsh medications. These medications aim to suppress your immune system. They can be effective at reducing some of the symptoms of the disease, however, they are not without many unwanted side effects. Fatigue, weight gain, depression, increased infection rates and even cancer are just a few of the side effects of the medications.
Even though conventional medicine does not offer a cure for autoimmune diseases, through holistic avenues with the I.W. Method Wellness program there is HOPE.
Functional wellness considers the body as a whole, working on the principle that the health of one body system impacts the health and function of other body systems. Rather than focusing on disease symptom management, we focus on supporting and strengthening the immune system. With the
I.W. Method Wellness program, we get to the root of why the immune system became imbalanced.
At Imagine Wellness Centre, we look into the root of the dysfunction by understanding the physiology and anatomy of the body systems. With autoimmune diseases, we have received great results by looking into the inflammation response. Inflammation response is when your body attacks outside agents as if they were a virus, creating antibodies. This makes your defense mechanism go rogue and begin to attack your own tissues. In turn, this can cause over 80 autoimmune diseases. In some cases, it is your
Thyroid under attack (Hashimoto’s, Grave’s), your Intestinal system (Crohn’s, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis…), your Joints (RA, Lupus), your Nerves (MS), your muscles (Fibromyalgia) or many other types of Autoimmune diseases. For a list of Autoimmune Diseases you may go to www.aarda.org
Through the process of repairing and restoring the gut, the attack to your system is decreased, reducing the number of your antibodies. With the I.W. Method, we have been able to successfully help hundreds of patients lower and reverse antibodies, getting off their harsh medications, and become symptom free. By dealing with the four underlying causes of Autoimmune Disease: Food Sensitivities, Toxins, Infections and Stress, the I.W. Meethod can help get you back on the road to recovery, health and wellness.
Not Traditional in Anyway
