How To Treat Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease With Functional Medicine

I wanted to talk to you about Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).

This is a diagnosis I saw often while working in the emergency department for over 20 years. It wasn’t typically something that they came for, but it would be found incidentally. It became more and more common as years went on. There’s a good reason for that. It goes to the underlying root cause being the most important part to fixing this. 

NAFLD is similar to what we used to call Alcoholic Cirrhosis. We called it that because it was typically caused from one’s overuse of alcohol. But now people are being impacted by this same type of liver disease while being non-drinkers. Part of the underlying cause is metabolic in nature. It goes to metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, as well as toxicity issues. 

Liver is the major detoxifying organ in our body. When we’re exposed to environmental toxins, that puts a heavy burden on our liver. At some point it will begin to malfunction. We begin to store our toxins in our fat cells. 

What can you do if you’ve been diagnosed with this?

The most important thing is figuring out the root cause for you to have developed this diagnosis. Getting to the root cause is where you can find a powerful intervention. 

What’s the best way to do that?

The best way is to see a functional medicine practitioner who understands the importance of getting a full and complete history of your health. Every person who is diagnosed with this has a different underlying root cause than the next person. That’s why it’s so important to get an individualized look and approach from a functional medicine practitioner. 

If this is something that speaks to you or someone you know, please understand that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. You need to have an individualized look at your underlying root cause.

Can Your Autoimmune Disease Be Reversed?

We’ve gone from 8.3 million Americans in 1996 diagnosed with an autoimmune disease to over 50 million Americans with an autoimmune disease today. And very often people are now impacted by more than 1 autoimmune disease. 

We spend over $86 billion dollars on autoimmune disease each year in this country. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases recognized at this time.  The most common types are Crohn’s Disease, Type I Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Scleroderma, and Psoriasis.  

Women are 3 times more likely to have an autoimmune disease. It’s the 8th leading cause of death for women between the ages of 15-64. It’s also the 3rd leading cause of chronic disease. 

Normally when you’re diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, you’re told you will have it for the rest of your life. I’m here to tell you that it’s a myth!

Were you aware that research on twins shows that they do not have the same risk factors to developing autoimmune disease. That tells us that much of the risk is coming from environmental factors, where our DNA meets our environment. It’s called epigenetics. 

I’m here to tell you that autoimmune disease does not need to be a chronic death sentence. There’s many things that can be done to improve symptoms and even create complete remission. Dare I say it, even cure the disease process.  

I’m here to offer you the gift of a free chat with me. 

One positive thing that’s come out of this COVID pandemic is global understanding of the importance of improving our overall health status. Each one of us, all across the world, need to improve our health and begin to make the right choices to have a resilient immune system.

I Struggled With My Inflammatory Bowel Disease For Over 30 Years But Then Found Functional Medicine!

Do you have bowel symptoms that cause you discomfort? Symptoms like – abdominal pain, distention, bloating, gas, or those embarrassing gurgling sounds. 

Do you find these symptoms make it very difficult to walk into a room full of people?

Maybe you’re cancelling social engagements that you were really looking forward to, all because of your symptoms.

Maybe it affects your mood, your overall sense of well being. 

I’m here to tell you there’s hope!

Check out this short video to learn more…

I help people who have been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease who have not yet had surgery. I help by effectively getting to the root cause of the problem rather than treating the symptoms. 

It may interest you to know that not everyone who is diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s disease has the same underlying cause. So, treating them all with the same medications make no sense. It’s important to get to the cause of the problem and intervene at that level. 

That’s what we do in functional medicine. We dig deep into your history, your physical exam, your biochemistry, and we make adjustments so your body can heal itself.

How do I know this can work for you? Because I did it for myself, and I’m doing it for my patients. I was diagnosed at 12, and was told I’d have this disease for life and have pain every day. 

I was told so many things that turned out not to be true. 

I suffered for over 30 years with this disease before I figured it out for myself. When I found functional medicine, everything clicked. 

I want that for you!

If this is you, please book a free call with me. Don’t suffer any longer. We can talk about how we can get you the results you’ve been looking for. Book here –  bit.ly/CallDrCampbell
