At our clinic, we are here to help our patients that suffer from our autoimmune disease.
What is autoimmune disease?
Autoimmune disease occurs when the adaptive immune system mounts an attack against healthy tissue. Recent research studies indicates that resistance to infection and susceptibility to autoimmune disease are intimately connected. Individuals with a ‘stronger’ immune system, which reacts aggressively to infection, are also more likely to develop autoimmune disease. Your immune system is unable to determine the difference between self-tissues and non-self-tissues.
There are different stages of autoimmune disease; silent (stage 1), Autoimmune reaction (stage 2), and autoimmune disease (stage 3).
In some cases, only a specific tissue or organ is being attacked. In other cases, multiple tissues and organs are being attacked. Unless, you put your autoimmunity into remission, you end up getting more and more tissues attacked. This can progress into multiple autoimmunities.
What is the cause for autoimmune disease?
The factors are many including genes and environmental. Environmental factors can turn on genes that express autoimmunity.
What are the environmental factors?
Foods, chemicals, and pathogens (infections).
What can we do about it?
We can’t cure it. Once you have autoimmunity, you will always have it. Our goal is to put it into remission and reduce flare-ups.
How do we do that?
We have to measure the triggers and eliminate them (foods, chemicals and pathogens).
We also have to make sure that we check different barriers in the body and make sure that they are not breached. This included the blood brain barrier, gut barrier and lung barrier. If they are breached, we need to try to correct this.
To get started, fill out our online paperwork (This typically takes about 1 hour) including:
- Welcome Form
- Neurotransmitter Assessment Form
- Brain Region localization Form
- Bring us your blood work (labs) that are less than 12 months old and imaging if available.
- Sign consent to treat form.
- Then schedule a 30-minute phone consultation, which costs $84.00
