Do You Have An AutoImmune Condition?

Do You Have An AutoImmune Condition?

An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. When it senses these foreign invaders, it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them.

Normally, the immune system can tell the difference between foreign cells and your own cells. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes part of your body, like your joints or skin, as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells.

The are a number of autoimmune diseases such as:

  • Celiac disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hashimotos Hypothyroidism
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriasis, and more

These diseases occur due to an abnormal immune response to a normal body part.

Functional Medicine Approach To Autoimmune Disease Management

Functional medicine examines the way the body functions as a whole – focus is on finding the imbalance in the immune system instead of simply suppressing it. There is no one-size-fits-all description of autoimmunity; it will look different for everyone. Our functional medicine practitioners have worked with thousands of patients experiencing auto immune diseases such as hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, ulcerative colitis, Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), etc. We help identify the root cause of the inflammation using specialized testing.

We use a holistic approach toward autoimmune disease management by combining the best of conventional treatments with a variety of alternative therapies for optimum results. This includes-

  • Strengthening the gut and microbiome
  • Detoxifying the body of heavy metals
  • Stress management and improving fitness
  • Identifying food sensitivities and gluten intolerance
