On Thursday August 20 2020, IHN hosted a 1-hour webinar, where Brett Hawes shared the root causes that drive leaky gut and autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is a collective term that includes over 120 known health conditions.

One of the main root causes of autoimmune disease is leaky gut. The presentation explained what leaky gut actually is, accurate detection methods, what causes it and how it is involved with autoimmune disease. Targeted dietary, lifestyle and supplement interventions that heal the gut, normalize the immune response and drastically reduce flare-ups was taught.

On Wednesday August 19 2020, IHN hosted a 90 minute webinar, exclusively for a peer to peer discussion. Brett Hawes shared the five main root causes that drive all autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is a collective term that includes over 120 different diseases. Due to the chronic and complex nature, autoimmune disease presents unique challenges for clinicians – detecting root causes, identifying a therapeutic starting point, and developing a structured health road map being the most common. Clients are often burnt out and frustrated by the time they see a holistic practitioner. This is because standard treatment focuses on core areas like pain and inflammation management, steroid therapy and immunosuppressants, with little regard for root cause resolution. Brett discussed the five main root causes that drive all autoimmune diseases and to break the cycle to drastically reduce symptoms and flare ups, make significant inroads into managing and reversing autoimmune disease holistically and naturally. Brett shared his unique approach based on his “perfect storm” framework, teaching practitioners what core areas to home in on to get positive clinical outcomes.

Changes in the body’s physiology can be seen in the iris several years before disease can be detected medically.
