Autoimmune Diseases

A healthy immune system is the key to resisting infections, allergies and chronic illnesses. The immune system protects and defends the body against viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi.

Stress is a factor that depletes the immune system. Balance in all areas of life – diet, exercise, mental perspective, social activity and spirituality – helps to keep it functioning well.

Autoimmune diseases result when our natural protective mechanism either go on strike or become confused and disoriented. The incidence of autoimmune diseases is very common and is rising rapidly in the general population.

A leading cause of death and disability

Autoimmune diseases are currently ranked as the third biggest disease category behind heart disease and cancer. Conventional medicine has little to offer to those afflicted.

Hypnotherapy can certainly ease the burden of symptom management and in many cases eliminate the problem with the use of the subconscious mind re-educating the body to function normally again. See: Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Among these autoimmune diseases, we find:


Celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, triticale and rye. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in the small intestine. Over time, this reaction produces inflammation that damages the small intestine’s lining and results in an inability of the body to absorb nutrients: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for good health.

Although statistics are not readily available, it is estimated that 1 in 133 persons in Canada is affected. Common symptoms are anemia, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, cramps and bloating, irritability. In other cases, sufferers develop an intense burning and itching rash.

At present, the doctors have no cure. Following a strict gluten-free diet help. Be sure to contact your doctor before trying such diet.

Hypnotherapy can also help greatly to restore your body to normal.


Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Nine out of ten people with lupus are women. It usually strikes between age 15 and 45, although it can occur in older individuals.

There are two kinds of lupus: Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE), which affects only the skin, and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) , which is more serious, affecting the skin and also the connective tissues throughout the body, including your joints, kidneys, blood cells, brain, hearth and lungs.

The real cause of lupus is unknown. Research suggests that a combination of genetic, hormonal, environmental, and immune system factors may be behind it. Some potential triggers include exposure to the sun and the taking of certain medications. Hypnosis can benefit you with lupus and be complementary to your treatment since emotional stress plays an important role in triggering the disease.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a mysterious, often frustrating disease in which the immune system, which normally protects your body, instead attacks the protective covering (myelin sheath) surrounding the nerves in your brain and spinal cord, the two components of the nervous system. Thus, the condition is called an autoimmune disease.

These nerves send information from the brain and spinal cord to other nerves in the body, and myelin (covering) helps make this transmission efficient. MS gets its name from the buildup of scar tissue (sclerosis) in the brain and/or spinal cord. Without myelin, these electrical messages which control muscle movements, such as walking and talking, are disrupted or halted. It is the breakdown of communication that causes the symptoms.

Multiple sclerosis symptoms include muscular weakness, numbness, blurred vision, light-headedness and urinary incontinence. With the exception of trauma, MS is the most frequent cause of neurological disability beginning in early to middle adulthood. It is two to three times as common in females as in males.

Hypnotherapy can help greatly to relax and reduce stress and depression, which can exacerbate the disease. Consult your doctor before considering hypnosis as an adjunct to your treatment.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Mentioning arthritis, you are thinking the disease old people get. This is osteoarthritis, more prevalent with age when cartilage in the joints break down. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks your joints. The abnormal immune response causes inflammation that usually becomes systemic affecting organs such as the skin, hearth and lungs.

Nearly three times more women are affected than men. In women, RA most commonly begins between ages 30 and 60. In men, it often occurs later in life.

The severity of the disease can vary from person to person. Symptoms can change from day to day. Key rheumatoid arthritis symptoms are pain, fatigue and warm, swollen, reddish joints. Long periods of joint stiffness in the morning are common. Inflammation in the small joints of the wrist and hand is typical.

There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis. Despite extensive research, the cause remains unknown. The goal of treatment is remission, a state when inflammation is gone or is very low. Hypnotherapy can help greatly in developing skills to help you cope with pain and stress, fighting back in a positive and constructive way.



Because there is no medical cure and there are many people affected by an autoimmune disease, I decided to offer my services at much reduced cost in order to help as many people as possible. Please, see details of my: SPECIAL OFFER
