Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune diseases and Autoimmune Inflammatory Diseases are conditions where the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body due to a lack of differentiation and other factors.

We are a Naturopathic, Holistic and Integrative Medical Practice located in Atlanta Georgia and Austin Texas that focuses on Autoimmune Disease, Autoimmune Inflammatory Diseases, Autoimmune Testing as well as Autoimmune treatments and support. Our approach to Autoimmune Disease is meant to identify the root causes of the problem and help balance the immune system to drive better and smarter actions. There are many variables than can impact your immune system’s health including the internal terrain, genetic predisposition, chemicals and toxins as well as external environment.

When the immune system goes awry, it can lead to a cascade of events that affect various tissues and organs.

Let’s delve a bit deeper into this fascinating topic:

Your metabolic internal terrain can impact your immune system’s health and processes including, but not limited to, gut processes, gut microbiome, and food sensitivities/allergies.  Additionally, a thorough understanding of your external environment and its components can play a critical role in your health.  Chemicals, toxins and frequencies as well as stress, lifestyle and diet may drive less than effective processes at the cellular level as well as in the immune system.

Triggers and Dysregulation:

External triggers (like environmental toxins or infections) and internal triggers (such as emotional stress or genetic factors) can disrupt immune tolerance. Immune cells, which are usually well-trained to distinguish self from non-self, lose their way and start attacking healthy tissues

Treatment and Management:

  • Balancing the immune response is key.
  • Identifying and removing chemicals and toxins from the cells can increase the healthy function of our immune system.
  • Dietary Modifications, lifestyle adjustments, and stress reduction play crucial roles.

In the broader picture, all of these elements may impact your body’s ability to defend itself and it may manifest or show symptoms as autoimmune disease and autoimmune inflammatory diseases. We are here to help move you through your health problems to a healthier body and life that include a healthier and balanced immune system. Education is key to balance and health.
