Incidence of auto-immune conditions are on the rise with over 80 identified diseases, which is a serious concern in the health field! Due to this prevalence, I provide naturopathic medicine support to patients with autoimmune diseases on a daily basis at my practice in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. A short list of common autoimmune conditions I see includes Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis and Chron’s disease.
Autoimmunity means that your own immune cells start attacking your organs or tissue! Common medical treatments for autoimmune diseases include steroids and medications that suppress your immune system. This approach leaves you susceptible to chronic infections and increased risk of cancer development.
As a naturopathic doctor, my philosophy is to find the underlying triggers that are leading to this confusion in the immune system. Together we review in detail your
history and other possible contributing factors triggering the chronic inflammation and imbalance in your body.
Once you have been diagnosed with one autoimmune disease, you are at an increased risk of developing another. The severity varies by each disease and individual, but there are often debilitating side effects and an increased risk of death, so it is imperative to treat these conditions immediately and with great care.
Even though autoimmune diseases are considered “incurable”, you can put them into remission. The goal from a functional medicine approach is to remove any triggers, restore balance to the immune system and move into a state of remission where the antibodies and chronic inflammation subside.
