We work to identify the underlying triggers of autoimmune disease and eliminate these triggers. Otherwise, you will find yourself taking prescription medications that treat symptoms but never treat the underlying causes. These triggers can include: hidden food allergies, overgrowth of bowel yeast or bacteria (bowel dysbiosis), adrenal fatigue, and nutritional deficiencies. By addressing the underlying triggers we can reduce inflammation, pain, and destruction PLUS allow you to slowly reduce the number of medications and work your way back to health.
We focus on:
Hidden Food Allergies–Nearly every person we see with autoimmune disease has hidden food allergies which increase immune activation, releasing pro-inflammatory cytokines and increasing inflammation. We use the most advanced and comprehensive food allergy testing available. Once we know what your toxic foods are, we develop a treatment program designed to help you avoid these offensive foods and reduce your inflammation. Some patients rid themselves of lifelong chronic illnesses and feel a tremendous boost in energy with just this simple step.
Adrenal Fatigue & Nutritional Deficiency-We have worked with adrenal fatigue for over 20 years. We evaluate your adrenal function through special saliva, blood or urine testing and prescribe a comprehensive treatment program to strengthen your adrenal function and aide your body in naturally reducing the inflammation.
Bowel Dysbiosis–Overgrowth of “bad” bacteria or yeast triggers an upregulation of the immune system around your bowel (2/3 of our immune cells are located near our bowel). This upregulation of the immune system around your bowel causes an increase in inflammatory chemicals throughout the body-causing your immune system to attack your joints, muscles, nerves and trigger autoimmune disease. We do special in-depth stool and blood testing to identify the overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast. We can then design a treatment plan to restore balance and reduce your inflammation.
You CAN work your way back to health. Prescription drugs are meant to treat the symptoms of autoimmune disease. It makes sense to work on the underlying triggers so that eventually you can reduce or discontinue the medications and truly be healthy again.
