Are You Frustrated?
Are You Scared, Frustrated and Confused, because you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and are taking medication but still have symptoms? Or you hate the side effects of the drugs? Or have not been diagnosed but feel awful in spite of going to countless doctors and taking boatloads of drugs and supplements?
If this is you, take heart! Don't let autoimmune struggles cripple activity with family and friends any longer--call today!
What is autoimmune disease? It's when our immune system mounts an attack against our own organs and glands--the very tissues it's supposed to protect from foreign invaders! Regardless which tissue is attacked, the mechanism is the same--the immune system gone awry.
Autoimmune disease--"the global warming of women's health." This is the term coined by health researcher Donna Jackson Nakazawa in The Autoimmune Epidemic: Bodies Gone Haywire in a World Out of Balance (Touchstone/Simon & Schuster).
The statistics she reports are alarming. Autoimmune disease is...
- The #2 cause of chronic illness in the U.S.
- The #3 leading cause of Social Security disability after heart disease and cancer
- The eighth leading cause of death in women
- Over 20 million people in the U.S. have autoimmune disease and 75% are women
- Because symptoms often wax and wane, the average autoimmune sufferer sees 6 doctors before being diagnosed and 50% are initially told "There's nothing wrong with you" and are labeled a hypochondriac
- Over the last 30 years, rates of autoimmunity have increased twofold to threefold. Experts agree that the onslaught of environmental toxicity is partly to blame, with 70,000 to 80,000 toxic chemicals now in use in agriculture, industry, personal care products, household products, etc.
Is there help for me if I have an autoimmune disorder? There is no known cure for autoimmune disease. The conventional medical treatment is steroids that suppress the immune system but do not address the cause of the reactivity. But the good news is that there are numerous natural protocols that can greatly improve your function and protect your body from progressive damage. With our natural protocols we have helped many people with autoimmune disorders experience a greatly improved quality of life.
Here are a few of the people we have been able to help achieve a better quality of life!
"I was diagnosed by my M.D. with HYPOTHYROIDISM in 2006 and was prescribed synthroid and cholesterol medication. Further testing also showed that I had Hashimoto’s Disease. After just 4 months of care with Dr. Tashiro, I now have more energy, better concentration, motivation and have lost 15 pounds. My sleeping and digestion have improved, and I have no more achey joints or double vision. BRAIN BASED THERAPY worked great for me! Dr. Tashiro and his staff are knowledgeable, caring and friendly. I will continue referring people to Dr. Tashiro!"
Bonnie V., Broomfield, CO
"My problems started after gallbladder surgery in 2011-Pernicious Anemia, Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism and weight gain. My M.D.’s only recommendation was to take Levothyroxine. After just 4 months of care at Dr. Tashiro's office, I NOW HAVE MORE ENERGY, BETTER SLEEP, BETTER MENTAL CLARITY, NO ACHES OR PAINS IN MY JOINTS AND I’VE LOST 25 POUNDS! My skin looks better and I’m a whole lot happier. It’s changed my life– it feels good to feel good again, and I know what I need to do to keep feeling better!"
Victoria D. Thornton, CO
"I was referred to this office by a friend of mine who told me how amazing this office is & how much they helped her. I was seeking treatment for gluten intolerance, food allergies, my right foot and to see if there was help for a thyroid issue I have had for 30 years. I have been under care with Dr. Tashiro for the last 6 weeks and I can say I am 85% - 88% better! My right foot was in severe pain and now almost back to normal. I found out about the BRAIN/GUT CONNECTION and wanted help with that. I now have more energy, I have lost some weight and I simply feel back on track."
Cassie C. Denver, CO
"My sinus problems, low energy, low back pain and intestinal pain began 3 years ago. My M.D. told me I’d have to take sinus medication the rest of my life. Acupuncture helped but only temporarily. Now, just 3 months into care with Dr. Tashiro, my energy is back, I feel happy again, I’m interested in my life and I have the energy to participate again. My pain is gone — I had forgotten what it was like not to be in pain. Life feels doable again, and worthwhile! The proof is in the results!"
Terri M. Lakewood, CO
"For 19 months I had seizures, brain fog and painful jaws, hips, legs and low back. I had seen a neurologist and his solution was anti-seizure medication. I said NO WAY...DRUGS ARE NOT A CURE! By the time I started care with Dr. Tashiro, I was having 15-20 seizures a day. After just 2 1/2 months of care, the seizures are down to 0 to 2 times a day. My spine, hips and low back are more stable and my jaw pain and brain fog have improved 70% and MY OVERALL CONDITION IS 90% BETTER! If you have problems I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Tashiro—he and his staff are excellent!”
Charlene C. Lakewood, CO
It was recommended to me one year ago by my M.D. to have my THYROID REMOVED. Dr. Steve has saved my thyroid and has made me well. I am thankful to God always and I am thankful for Dr. Steve! He is a good listener and a caring doctor. My digestion is much better. I can exercise more, I have more energy, I feel better and I’ve lost weight. Most of all I do not have to have my thyroid removed! I am relieved to know what my REAL problems were and that I am better.
