How Dr. Mischa Grieder, ND Treats

Dr. Grieder approaches complex chronic disease by working with the interconnectedness of 3 primary organ systems: the brain, the gut, and the immune system. When these systems are running well, optimal health can be attained. When they begin to struggle, disease develops. To our benefit and detriment, these 3 systems are most easily affected by our environment. This vulnerability can result in illness but also provides an opening to stimulate healing.

Interaction of 3 Primary Organ Systems

the brain

THE BRAIN – While many scientists view the brain as the control center of the body, it doesn’t operate as a top-down command system. The brain has interrelationships with both our immune system and our gut.

the immune system

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – The immune system is not self-regulated. Our gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) comprises 70% of the body’s immune system. The immune system also signals our brain when foreign invaders are present.

the gut

THE GUT – The gut-brain axis is now frequently referenced in the literature. This bidirectional link via the Vagus nerve affects our emotions, hormones, memory, and immunity. Our gut even trains our immune system to protect the brain!
