Chronic Illness Treatment

When it comes to health, chronic infections are often a missing link. Most practitioners assume infections only impact someone in an acute, not long-term chronic fashion.

At our clinic, we see patients who have gone to other Functional Medical providers and they have received fantastic care with detailed testing; however, they still are not recovering or even declining in health. More often than not, the missed causes are viruses, bacteria, spirochetes (tick borne illness) parasites and or fungal infections.  Infections can hide and simmer under the surface causing chronic health issues for many years, even decades. As you will see below, research indicates the most common trigger of an autoimmune disease are infections.

We offer tests for a wide range of infections.

HOW ARE INFECTIONS LINKED TO AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS?

An autoimmune disorder is often triggered by infections, chemicals and or food sensitivities. To read more on autoimmunity click here. Infections can cause autoimmunity by either mimicry or cross reactivity where they “look” similar to human tissues and the immune system cannot identify the difference, ultimately triggering the attack on tissue.  The other theorized way autoimmune disorders can be triggered by infections is when a parasite, fungus, and or bacteria attach to tissue protein creating a new “compound”.  The immune system does not like anything that is not expected to be in your body, and when it does daily ‘checks’, it will recognize this new compound as a foreign article. Unfortunately, part of the new compound is your own tissue, and when the immune system attacks this compound, it is also attacking your tissue, often resulting in autoimmunity.
