Autoimmune Diseases


It is estimated that more than 50 million Americans are affected.  Women are 8 times more likely to develop autoimmune illnesses than men. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases, and these include Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Thyroid Disease ( Hashimoto’s & Grave’s ), Inflammatory Bowel Disease ( Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis), Celiac Disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Psoriasis, and many others. 


The function of immune system is to protect the Body from “Invaders”, yet in autoimmune illness it attacks its own body tissues.  Depending on your body’s “weak link”, it may attack your joints, thyroid, gut, brain, skin, or all of them.
Some of the common symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions:

 

• feeling bloated after meals
• skin rashes
•  joint pain
• decreased energy
. forgetfulness
. resistant weight loss

 

Western medicine approach is to suppress the inflammation while using medications with serious side effects and weakening the immune system.  Functional medicine focuses on eliminating the causes of inflammation – inflammatory foods, infections, toxins, and other “hidden” causes. That’s why we test, and don’t guess.
