Interventions for Autoimmune Disease – a clinical psycho-neuro-immunology perspective
Your immune system is a complex network of systems in your body that keep you alive. However autoimmune problems occur when your immune systems has been continuously activated over a number of years. This can be a result of adverse childhood experiences, early life trauma and chronic life stress that keep it activated on a long term basis.
Your brain communicates with your immune system through the autonomic nervous system and through hormonal activity. Both pathways generate signals that are perceived by the immune system via receptors on the surface of white blood cells and other immune cells. An activated immune system generates chemical messenger signals called cytokines that produce inflammation and are also picked up by the nervous system. This two-way communication pathway connects your brain and your immune system with your hormones and your entire physiology. For disease to occur there will be typically one or two ‘last straws’ i.e. stressful events that push you towards a new pathway of immune behaviour.
Examples of autoimmune disease:
Type I Diabetes
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases

Fees are invoiced and payable after the initial consultation. The initial consultation is where you and Fleur can decide whether you need the two stand-alone sessions or a package. The package is recommended so that Fleur can monitor and guide you through and make any changes necessary over a two to three month period. This is enough time for initial change to occur and benefits to be seen.
