We specialize in helping people with Autoimmune Disease
Much of our Functional Medicine practice is devoted to helping people with Autoimmune Disease to reverse the underlying causes of the autoimmune process and reduce or eliminate symptoms so they can live a better quality of life. We have helped many people with autoimmune conditions such including:
In a conventional medicine approach, the philosophy is that once you have an autoimmune condition, there's nothing you can do to reverse the process and the primary goal is to manage symptoms. This typically involves serious medications that suppress your immune system. These medications can be effective in reducing some of the symptoms, but there are consequences to shutting down your immune system and you can have unwanted side effects such as fatigue, weight gain, depression, infections, and cancer.
I think we can all agree that nobody wants to take immune suppressing drugs for the rest of their life, but unfortunately this is the only option offered by most doctors.
In a Functional Medicine approach, our philosophy is that by correcting the underlying autoimmune triggers that caused the autoimmune attack that we can reverse the autoimmune process. The result is a reduction of symptoms, reduced tissue destruction, and a better quality of life.
The presence of an autoimmune disease also significantly increases the risk of developing additional autoimmune diseases, so removing autoimmune triggers likely decreases your risk of further autoimmune disease.
In our Functional Medicine practice, our goal is disease remission and we have been able to successfully help many patients lower and sometimes eliminate autoimmune antibodies, reduce or eliminate the need for medications, become symptom free, and live a better life.
