Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system malfunctions, attacking healthy tissue instead of foreign cells or viruses. Autoimmune disorders typically affect a system or organ in the body. As a result, traditional medicine views the disorder as a disease of a particular organ or system and treats the organ instead of healing the immune system. Conventional medicine also often calls for harsh treatments that suppress the immune system. However, from a functional medical approach, instead of focusing on the body part being attacked, Mitali works to support and heal the immune system itself. By healing the immune system, the body returns to a state of balance and health and the immune system ceases its attack on the body.
Mitali treats the immune system by designing a treatment plan to establish optimal function in the gut, restoring liver function, and supporting immune balance with the prescription of customized nutrient and herbal formulas which will naturally heal the digestive system and provide balance to the body.
