Auto-immune diseases consist of a broad range of diseases characterized by the destruction healthy cells of an individual by its own immune system. There are about 80 diseases that belong to this category and the exact reasons causing the diseases are unknown. However exposure to certain chemical/environmental irritants, stress, drugs, bacteria/ viruses as well as inflammation caused by intolerances to certain foods or intake of a typical western diet high in processed foods, fats and sugar are some possible causes of autoimmune diseases.
At Vingyana we try to detoxify the body of harmful chemicals that may causes allergies and other sensitivities, address various inflammatory processes that trigger autoimmune diseases and strengthen the immune system by using an evidence based, holistic approach towards the condition.
We use numerous tests and assessments (e.g.: ALCAT, oligoscan) to first identify imbalances and toxicities in the body and then create a personalized treatment plan.
ALCAT Test is a blood test used for identifying immune reactions to various foods, food additives, environmental chemicals, medicinal herbs, moulds, antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory agents. It measures the patient’s response to each of the substances tested and classifies the response as reactive, borderline or non-reactive. A customised diet plan or substances to avoid can be recommended based on the findings. This improves the immune system balance.
Oligo Scan testing is used at Vingyana to detect trace elements and toxic metals. If the patient suffers from metal toxicity, chelating techniques, supplements, lifestyle changes and dietary changes can be recommended to the patients.
Nutriceuticals and herbal medicine may also be prescribed to the patients depending on their needs. Due to the western diet and lifestyle, many people are deficient in crucial nutrients that are needed by the body for proper functions. Nutriceuticals work in conjunction with a balanced diet to support the body to heal by providing extra support in areas where deficiencies may be. Herbal medicine and botanical extracts are also used to support body’s biochemical pathways.
Clinical detoxification is also a significant part of our treatment protocol. Therapies such as colon hydrotherapy and coffee enemas are used to cleanse the gut and get rid of any toxins. Juicing regimens are also used to enhance your body’s detoxification process. Our cold pressed juices will be made especially for you using carefully selected ingredients that does not trigger an immune response in your body. These juices provide a refreshing boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and offer maximum benefits, keeping nutrients and enzymes intact.

Our treatment protocols also include use of homeopathy and traditional Chinese medicine practices such as acupuncture to balance the vital energy (Qi) and to address issues such as depression, anxiety and insomnia which may act as triggers for autoimmune diseases.
