Autoimmune


Your immune system is a complex network that performs numerous jobs in the body. One of its primary roles is to identify, attack, and kill invading foreign cells to keep your body healthy.

The immune system is the body’s tool for preventing or limiting infection.

One of its primary roles is to identify, attack, and kill invading foreign cells to keep your body healthy. When the immune system is not functioning properly, the body is not able to withstand attacks from bacteria, viruses, and parasites.


These attacks on healthy cells lead to a decline in function within the body. A cascading effect occurs throughout the body when one type of cell is attacked and rendered unable to perform its natural function. As the autoimmunity persists without treatment, the body experiences higher levels of physiological imbalance and destruction.

Symptoms of autoimmune disorders can manifest anywhere in the body and may include multiple symptoms in different regions.

The following are some common autoimmune symptoms:   

  • Headaches and/or Migraines
  • Brain Fog
  • Joint and Muscle Aches
  • Joint Swelling
  • GI Distress; Chronic Constipation, Diarrhea, IBS
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Sleep Disturbances; Insomnia
  • Skin Conditions; Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Eczema
  • Swollen Glands
  • Recurrent Fever
  • Recurrent Rashes
  • Hypothyroidism

We often see patients with underlying autoimmunity that’s gone undetected for so long that their symptoms have become “normal” and they have stopped paying attention to them. They do not realize their previous level of suffering until they begin to feel healthy again.

There is an increased risk of developing full destruction and serious diseases if autoimmunity symptoms are left untreated. Currently, there are more than 80 identified autoimmune diseases. Some of these include Hashimoto’s, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Grave’s disease, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatic heart disease, type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, and multiple sclerosis.
