When our personal immune system turns its focus from fighting foreign bodies to reacting against its own tissues, you have autoimmune disease. A growing number of individuals are being diagnosed with these conditions and we are learning more and more about the causes.
Conventional medicine generally addresses autoimmune disease with medications. Since it is a multi-factorial condition, we take the time needed with patients to identify all factors and help patients deal with the condition from a holistic perspective.
While providing symptom relief, we work to reduce inflammation and tissue damage using the following steps.
Steps for Reducing Inflammation & Tissue Damage
- Adjusting the diet
- Work on healing and strengthening the digestive system
- Food allergy testing
- Hormone and stress balancing
