According to American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA), 50 million Americans likely suffer with at least one autoimmune condition. Your autoimmune system is designed to defend your body against disease. When autoimmunity occurs, your body mistakenly attacks healthy cells and tissue creating discomfort and bodily dysfunction. It is not uncommon for someone to have more than one autoimmune disease at the same time. Traditional medicine has struggled to find an effective cure for autoimmune diseases. Even serious disorders like Crohn's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus do not have an effective treatment regimen or outright cure.

Examples of Autoimmune Disorders

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
  • Grave's Disease
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Autoimmune Hepatitis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Scleroderma
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Sjogren Syndrome
  • Systemic Lupus
  • Polymyositis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Celiac Disease

At times, multiple symptoms of chronic diseases can show in more than one place at once. Unlike traditional medicine, functional medicine takes a different approach and looks at the root cause of a collection of symptoms. While conventional medicine might send you to different specialists, our functional medicine doctors, nurses and practitioners look at how all of your symptoms are related in a whole body approach. A functional medicine practitioner understands that problems in your gut microbe and your chronic insomnia can be contributing to your sciatica. Patient care relies on highly accurate lab analysis for diagnosis and adjustments to diet and nutrition to restore hormonal balance.
