When 10-year-old Isabel first visited Dr. Mark Hyman, she had an extreme case of an autoimmune illness considered to be a combined connective tissue illness or MCTD. Her medical diagnosis consisted of rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Her condition occurred with several incapacitating negative effects, and her disease was considered incurable.

Isabel’s disease affected every part of her body. Her blood vessels, red and leukocyte, her liver and muscles, even her skin.

He described that she was chronically “worn out and unpleasant.”

The medications weren’t helping Isabel. Her former doctors suggest that she take a chemotherapy drug daily in order to suppress the activity of her immune system. While the drug might help in reducing symptoms, it also includes a danger of cancer as well as death from infection.

For Isabel, that wasn’t a choice. So she went to Dr. Hyman. Less than a year later on, she was without symptoms, her blood tests were typical and she wasn’t taking a single medication.

A Natural Healing Method

While a number of Isabel’s former medical professionals focused on how to cover her symptom’s with drugs, Dr. Hyman took a different approach. Rather, he worked to discover the underlying reasons for her condition. He found that the swelling she was experiencing could be better managed by a few basic tweaks in her diet.




Dr. Hyman informed Isabel to prevent gluten, dairy and sugar, and to take a few supplements to assist the body heal itself. These consisted of a multivitamin, Vitamins D and B12, folate and fish oil. He likewise suggested an anti-inflammatory night primrose oil, an anti-fungal, a probiotic and a mercury chelating agent.

Not too long after, Isabel was healthy as soon as again. Dr. Hyman and Isabel decided to share their story to reveal others how successful their approach to natural healing remained in this case. In the video below, Isabel explains, “I can ride my horse once again, I’m off all these dumb medications, and … I feel great!

Autoimmune Illness




It’s approximated that autoimmune diseases impact about 50 million Americans. They are available in various kinds, consisting of celiac illness, Crohn’s illness, fibromyalgia and type 1 diabetes. The number one sign that all of these diseases share is swelling. Many physicians prescribe immunosuppressant drugs, discomfort medications, and anti-inflammatory drugs for patients who suffer from an autoimmune illness.

Dr. Hyman writes, “Medication today approaches most disease by reducing, covering over, obstructing or otherwise disrupting the body’s biology. We typically do not try to seriously deal with the hidden problems that lead to the illness in the very first location.” By getting rid of gluten, dairy and sugar from Isabel’s diet plan, Dr. Hyman was able to lower her inflammation. The additional vitamins and supplements gave her body a natural push to get on track to healing.
