Autoimmune Diseases

In a healthy immune response, antibodies only attack foreign bodies such as viruses, cancer cells, and toxins. However, with autoimmune diseases, the immune system falters in distinguishing between friend and foe, leading to a scenario where antibodies may mistakenly attack healthy organs and tissues. Additionally, many autoimmune diseases cause chronic inflammation. Coping with an autoimmune disease becomes a daily struggle, gradually sapping both mental and physical strength. This makes it challenging for individuals to reclaim their optimal well-being and potentially accelerates the aging process.

There are also numerous signs and symptoms of autoimmune diseases, including:

  • Impaired vision
  • Skin rashes
  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle aches
  • Numbness and / or tingling in hands or feet
  • Trouble concentrating

There are many types of autoimmune diseases, including:

  • Grave Disease
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriasis / Arthritis
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Myocarditis
  • Pernicious Anemia
  • Vasculitis
  • And others

How We Work With Patients To Treat Autoimmune Disease

Here’s how we work with all new patients:

  1. Discovery call. We’ll learn your health history and see if we’re a good fit to help you. We’ll send you forms to complete and ask that you send us lab results from prior visits with your doctor.
  2. Consultation appointment. We’ll review your forms, do a physical exam and testing. Then we’ll offer an initial assessment, and we’ll discuss additional testing if needed. If there is enough information for an initial treatment plan we’ll give you one, otherwise we will need to await the testing results. We’ll also discuss the options we offer to join our practice as a member.
  3. Diagnosis. If you decide to join our practice, we’ll review your results from the consultation appointment in detail, and then offer a more detailed diagnosis and treatment plan that we collaboratively develop, which includes follow up visits to our office.
  4. Treatment. We start. We track progress. We recommend. We monitor. We celebrate progress. We adjust as we need to.
