Sjögren Syndrome

Sjögren’s syndrome is an autoimmune pathological condition that primarily affects the mucous membranes and moisture-secreting glands of the eyes and mouth. This syndrome affects more women than men and is usually diagnosed in people over the age of 40. Sjögren’s syndrome sometimes co-exists with other autoimmune disorders, such as Rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus.


Diagnosis of Real Causes & Treatment of Sjögren Syndrome

  • Gradual restoration of cellular function
  • Personalized therapeutic protocols, without chemical residues and excipients
  • Treating the real causes
  • Therapeutic formulas that work alone or in combination with any other medication
  • Adopting a Molecular / Therapeutic Nutrition Plan



The symptoms that patients with Sjögren’s syndrome experience, include eye dryness, mouth-throat dryness, difficulty in swallowing, vaginal dryness, swelling of the salivary glands (swelling of the area between jaws and the ears), increase of dental cavities or skin rashes.

Your Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your symptoms could be indicative of Sjögren’s Syndrome. Then your specialist may recommend a specialized blood or antibodies test, an eye examination or other molecular-level diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis. Your personalized treatment plan will be based upon the diagnostic tests results, the symptoms described and your medical history overall.


This treatment plan may be accompanied by a Molecular Nutrition program that will be compiled after a distinct consultation with our Molecular Nutritionist and will aim towards achieving even higher levels of health and well-being, along with alleviating not only the symptoms but the true causes of Sjögren’s Syndrome.
