As many as one in nine women of childbearing years will be diagnosed with an autoimmune illness. Autoimmune diseases can affect all different organs and is really a whole body disorder. They can cause years of chronic suffering and searching for answers and help.
An autoimmune disorder is one in which the immune system is in a chronic cycle of attacking a healthy organ. Why would it do that? Stress. Usually the first immune response person experience is a healthy one due to a foreign invader such as a bacterial, fungal or viral pathogen entering the body so the immune system triggers a response and fights it. However, if the brain is stuck in a chronic state of stress, known as sympathetic overdrive, the immune response will not stop when the invader is gone and the body gets stuck in this chronic cycle of attacking this stress and then it becomes an autoimmune illness if this happens long enough.
If chronic stress is the problem, then what is the solution? Move to Hawaii and get away from all stress? No. It’s to shift your brain from that chronic sympathetic overdrive state and into a healing state known as the parasympathetic nervous system. We can’t control if you experience stress but we can control how your body responds to it. That is what Dr. Julia specializes in. Her gentle, neurological adjustments stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and allow you to better adapt rather than react to your everyday stress.

Our approach is very different. In our office we help practice members achieve amazing and lasting results because we come from a different paradigm, a paradigm of salutogenesis. Salutogenesis means the creation of health. Dr. Julia focuses on what it takes to be healthy and focuses on creating health versus treating symptoms and disorders.
