HOLISTIC HELP FOR AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS
For the estimated 50 million Americans suffering from autoimmune disease, which includes anywhere from 80 to 100 different disorders that first present with unspecific and seemingly random symptoms, the functional approach to medicine has a special significance. For example, the most classic sign of an autoimmune flare-up is inflammation.
Conventional medicine will often prescribe immune-suppressing drugs, which can provide considerable relief but also may:
• Set the body up for future health problems.
• Not treat the root cause of the disorder.
• Provide a temporary Band-Aid, not a real solution.
Because Mind-Body Medicine looks at how the body functions as a whole system, we will instead seek to balance your immune system, rather than suppress it.
