Rather than using prescription anti-inflammatories or corticosteroid medications to suppress the immune system and mask the symptoms, the underlying cause of immune system dysfunction should be identified and treated.

Testing may include a food sensitivity panel, yeast testing, autoimmune markers, bacterial and viral titres, adrenal stress testing, vitamin D testing, nutritional factors and more, depending on the presentation.

Decreased immune resistance can be the result of various disturbances in the body. Treatment will include removing barriers to immune system function, clearing infections, addressing nutrient deficiencies, improving dietary choices and metabolism, and restoring adrenal function.
