Over 100 Autoimmune Diseases

Our specialty is autoimmunity. Whether you know or suspect that you have an autoimmune condition, we can help you achieve your wellness goals. All autoimmune diseases develop through very similar patterns and we are very familiar with these processes.

Immunology, rheumatology or endocrinology specialists may have training in specific disorders, but they lack any tools except pharmaceutical or surgical and typically down-play natural medicine as a viable alternative. Here is a list of autoimmune conditions we have worked with in our 12 years of autoimmune specialization:

Common Autoimmune Triggers

Your DNA loads the gun, but your environment pulls the trigger. What are some of the most common triggers for autoimmune disease?

How Can Dr. Autoimmune Help?

It can be frustrating trying to find help with chronic and complex conditions, which is why we have chosen to dedicate our practice to exactly that. Instead of treating the symptoms, our functional medicine approach focuses on finding the causes.

All autoimmune diseases start in the gut. We design custom plans of dietary intervention, supplements and lifestyle recommendations to help heal the gut and support the immune system. In supporting these fundamental functions of the digestive tract we can reduce inflammation and see dramatic changes in symptoms.

Finding the Root Cause

We know that autoimmunity requires 3 things to develop:
1. Genetic predisposition
2. Leaky gut (a.k.a intestinal permeability)
3. An environmental trigger

It All Starts in the Gut!

Our small intestine consists of 25 feet of tubing, the inside surface area being equivalent to that of a doubles tennis court!

Proteins called “tight junctions” prevent a flood of material into the gut. Low vitamin D levels coupled with inflammation in the gut starts to widen the space between cells, allowing materials (bacteria and food) to start seeping through. This triggers inflammation and as antibodies are formed they begin to target organs. This is why medication may help symptoms but it can never resolve your condition.
