Autoimmune and Chronic DiseaseIdentifying Autoimmune or Chronic Disease

Sometimes symptoms such as brain fog, headaches, migraines, sinus infections, insomnia, fatigue or chronic fatigue, bowel disturbances, abdominal pain, muscle pain or weakness, joint pain, or tinnitus (ringing in ears) can be signs of a more serious health concern such as Autoimmune Disease or Chronic Disease. By taking a holistic approach, we are able to look at these symptoms in combination with your overall state to determine whether autoimmune or chronic disease might be affecting you. For those already diagnosed with these conditions, we develop a natural treatment plan to relieve symptoms and restore your best health possible.

Autoimmune Diseases

According to The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, one in five Americans suffers from autoimmune diseases, with women more likely to be affected than men. While the list of autoimmune disease and autoimmune-related diseases is long, some of the most common ones we see are as follows:

  • Hashimoto’s
  • Diabetes
  • Lupus
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis)
  • Celiac, Crohn’s, and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Lichen planus
  • MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease)
  • Scleroderma
  • Raynaud’s

Unlike conventional treatment for autoimmune diseases, our treatment protocols minimize the production of antibodies that attack the body and we focus on balancing and supporting the body, rather than only suppressing symptoms.

Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases are defined by the CDC as “the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.” As naturopathic physicians, we are uniquely qualified to help patients prevent chronic disease, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), as well as turn patients health around following a diagnosis or even years of traditional medical treatment via medication with less-than-desirable results.

  • Cholesterol issues like hyperlipidemia
