What is an autoimmune disease?

Your immune system is designed to protect your body’s healthy cell tissues by attacking any viruses, pathogens, bacteria, or diseases that enter your body. Autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system get confused and produces antibodies that attack your normal body tissues. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disease that affect a wide range of body parts. This attack can be related to many organs, for example in Hashimoto’s immune system attacks the thyroid.

Researchers aren’t sure yet what causes autoimmunity. Genetic factors play an important role but whether or not autoimmune disease manifests itself also depends on environmental factors, active or past infection, both viral and bacterial, parasitic as well as fungal. It can also be caused by diet or severe stress.

My approach to dealing with an autoimmune disease

As a Nutritionist and Nutritional Therapist, when working with patients in my clinic in Mayfair, London, and online, I take a holistic approach. Rather than suppressing the symptoms, I work on finding the root cause of an autoimmune disease and restoring the balance using diet, supplements and lifestyle. 

My 5R Approach


Remove allergic/intolerant foods, parasites, bad bacteria, yeast. This may include an ‘elimination diet’ to find out what foods are causing the symptoms.


Replace digestive secretions, such as hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes or bile salts, that are required for proper digestion and that may be compromised by diet, drugs, diseases, ageing, and other factors.


Populate your gut with probiotics and prebiotics.


Help the lining of the gut repair itself by supplying the key nutrients.


Address the lifestyle factors that may affect your gut function.

Common symptoms of autoimmune disease

  • Fatigue that doesn’t go away after rest
  • Muscle weakness
  • Frequent colds and infections
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Digestive problems
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Irritability and mood swings
