"The first week I started the regime the change was amazing. My energy returned, my skin glowed, the aches and pains and heat (inflammation) in my joints went away (almost all), the gastric reflux stopped. People commented on the change in me. I was amazed at how different and positive I felt. So thank you so much." Susie, Plymouth

"I can't speak highly enough of that man, he changed my life". Doreen, Worcester 


Ankylosing Spondylitis 

Inflammation of the joints between the vertebrae of the spine leads to the stiffness, rigidity and pain of Ankylosing Spondylitis.
Ninety per cent of cases are found in males and the common age of onset is 20-40 years.  

Ankylosing Spondylitis is considered an autoimmune reaction where, for whatever reason, the body attacks itself and, as such, conventional medicine addresses only the symptoms with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDs, and steroids, both local injections and then when symptoms return, systemic.

The cause of the condition has to be the usual epigenetic suspects of inflammation including injury sustained by over activity, food allergy/intolerance, pathogenic organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungus/Candida and parasites), toxins such as metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury etc), chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, preservatives etc), drugs such as NSAIDs (ironically the very ones used to tackle the pain of Ankylosing Spondylitis) and not forgetting malabsorption of essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals and especially fatty acids of EPA and DHA.

The treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis is to address the factors that precipitated it, regular aerobic and resistance exercise, an adequate intake of essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 oils, as well as both soluble and insoluble fibre from fruit, vegetable and whole grains to ensure adequate repair of the affected tissue and the restoration of optimum health.

An Integral Health DNA Hair Test not only can identify the epigenetic factors which possibly give rise to cause/causes of an imbalance in the body and the potential for signs and symptoms of disease; it is also able to highlight the nutrient and lifestyle recommendations specific for each unique individual, helping to ensure they are able to achieve optimum health - naturally.
