More than 500 per 100,000 people are affected with an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are characterized as an abnormal immune reaction where the body attacks itself. The cause for the body to shift into attacking itself is commonly multi-factorial and can be different depending on the person and the type of autoimmune disease. About 85% of autoimmune cases affect women, and it is the leading cause of death in young or middle-aged women.
Most common autoimmune diseases include:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Lupus or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
- Celiac disease
- Sjögren’s syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Psoriatic Arthritis
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
– Ulcerative Colitis
We offer comprehensive and adjunctive support for these conditions including nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, medical nutrition, lymphatic massage, and other treatments to supplement the care provided with your rheumatologist and health care physicians.
