    Autoimmunity-Diagnosing and Correcting an Underlying Problem w/Erica Jurasits,DO

    in Health

    Fatigue, inflammation, weight loss resistance, sleepless nights and chronic disease....can it all be caused by an overtaxed immune system?


    Your immune system is your body’s “guard”.   It is able to identify what belongs in your body and what doesn’t.  When it finds an “invader” such as a virus, bacteria or heavy metals – its job is to disable them, allowing the body to live and function optimally.  Unfortunately, sometimes the immune system gets overloaded and becomes unable to do its job properly.  It then begins to target healthy tissues, a situation that, if it persists can often lead to an autoimmune disease or autoimmunity.


    More than 23 million Americans suffer from autoimmunity, which makes it the third most common category of illness in the United States after cancer and heart disease.  Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 1 Diabetes, Lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroid disease, along with Allergies and Asthma.  


    Unless this problem of a dysfunctional immune system is addressed at the ROOT, no amount of intervention will cause the invader to retreat.


    Join us as we speak with Erica Jurasits, DO as she talks about what the very first step to healing is and how genetics, lifestyle, environmental factors and stress causes dysfunction in the body. 


    Dr. Jurasits, founder of Integrative Healing Wellness in Port Jefferson and board certified in Family Medicine uses a patient centered approach to find the “root cause” of illness and brings your body back into balance.


    Come see Dr. Jurasits speak live at the upcoming NAVEL Expo November 8th as well as many other wellness oriented, prevention minded doctors and healers.

    Healing Autoimmunity Through Prayer

    in Self Help

    Ruschelle Khanna is an LCSW with a mission to empower women to take the best possible care of their health, acknowledging that they know their bodies better than anyone else. Upon opening her private practice as a psychotherapist in Manhattan, Ruschelle experienced a debilitating mystery illness that almost took her life. As a long time health advocate, she knew it was time to use her skills on herself. 


    After three months of researching and multiple physicians visits with no answers, Ruschelle finally diagnosed herself with Lyme Disease, which was confirmed by two Lyme physicians, and she began to heal. 


    Through her personal and professional experience, she works with women to harness the power of physical pain to turn it into an intuitive, powerful motivator for health, freedom and happiness in their lives. Ruschelle has a creative approach including traditional talk therapy, coaching and inspiring workshops that help women identify sabotaging habits that get in the way of their vibrant health.
