Holistic Treatment For Autoimmune Disease

It is estimated that 25% of American women suffer with an autoimmune disorder; 10% of men. At the Holistic Wellness Center of the Carolinas, we have seen thousands of members with autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, many patients go misdiagnosed for many years.   Once someone has 1 autoimmune condition they are 25-50% more likely to develop another one.

The conventional approach for autoimmunity is to suppress the immune system with steroids and other immunosuppresive drugs. These drugs may include Humira or chemotherapy agents that modulate the immune system (for example, methotrexate). Although the drug approach can save lives and help patients manage their autoimmunity better, it does not address the underlying causes and triggers of the autoimmune condition.

The Holistic Wellness Center can help you understand and address the underlying condition behind autoimmune disorders using more than just the conventional approach.

Take Control of Your Health

Probably the most important statistic with autoimmunity is that once you have one diagnosed autoimmune condition, your odds of developing another is as high as 25%.

For hormone /endocrine-based autoimmune conditions such as Addison’s, Grave’s and Hashimoto’s, it can be as high as 50%.

This is why it’s so important to take control and identify your underlying triggers.

SYMPTOMS OF AUTOIMMUNE DISORDER INCLUDE

  • Fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression & brain fog
  • Memory loss
  • Skin rashes
  • Digestive symptoms
  • Headaches and or migraines
  • Temperature changes
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain or loss
  • And many more

Our Functional Methodology For Autoimmune Disorders

We implement functional herbal/nutritional protocols, nutrigenomic testing (genetic testing), infectious disease markers, sex hormone testing and food sensitivity panels with all our autoimmune members.  This helps us find the underlying causes and daily triggers of a autoimmune condition.  Furthermore, we empower our members with knowledge so they can handle their condition indefinitely through dietary and lifestyle changes.

Since we utilize functional medicine at The Holistic Wellness Center of the Carolinas, as a result, we use different lab ranges then mainstream medicine. Functional medicine uses tighter lab ranges to identify disorders. This is important due to the millions of Americans having lab work performed, still suffering with symptoms, but falling between the large ranges used in conventional medicine.
