Reversing Autoimmunity Using Naturopathic Medicine with Dr. Nicole Fujiyama (Episode 66)

Dr. Doni Wilson's Podcast: How Humans Heal
Dr. Doni speaks with Dr. Nicole Fujiyama identifying the underlying cause that has triggered autoimmunity in the first place so that we can address it directly and create a "reset" in your immune system. 

One of my most favorite things to do is to chat with another naturopathic doctor about health issues we help patients to address using the medicine we love.  

In today’s episode, I spoke with Dr. Nicole Fujiyama, a naturopathic doctor and Bastyr graduate who specializes in helping patients to reverse autoimmunity.  

The secret to success turning off autoimmunity, as Dr. Nicole explains, is all about asking the question “why” in order to identify the underlying cause that triggered the autoimmunity in the first place. Then we can address the cause or causes to create a reset in your immune system. 

Common “underlying causes” of all different types of autoimmunity are:  

  • Inflammatory foods, like gluten 
  • Leaky gut 
  • Imbalanced gut bacteria 
  • Toxins, like from mold, pesticides and metals 
  • Medication use, such as antibiotics and NSAIDs 
  • Infections, including viral infections 
  • Stress in general 

There are tests we use to help us identify the underlying causes for you, but keep in mind, these are not tests you’ll find at the usual doctor’s office and they are not usually covered by insurance.  

But if you’ve been struggling with autoimmunity and tired of hearing “take this pill and come back in a few months” – then it’s time to consider naturopathic medicine to help guide to a solution.  

Both Dr. Nicole and I have a family history of autoimmunity, and that motivated both of us to research more, try new things, and be willing to make changes in order to prevent autoimmunity in our lives.  

You can do it too! Listen in for answers to common questions and concerns related to autoimmunity, including…  

  • Common symptoms 
  • What tests to request 
  • Why we start with gut healing (even if you don’t have digestive symptoms) 
  • How did autoimmunity start in the first place 
  • What triggers a flare in symptoms 
  • When is the best time to start preventing autoimmunity 
  • and… What does stress have to do with it, anyway? 

Whether you have Hashimoto’s, Rheumatoid arthritis, Celiac disease, or any other autoimmune condition, or have a family history of any of these conditions and want to stop it from happening to you…  

Join us for this episode and reach out for us to guide you. Take your power back when it comes to your health and your immune system. You’ve got this.
