Autoimmune disease is complex and requires a comprehensive approach that looks at the BIG picture. Functional Medicine goes beyond just masking surface level symptoms and dives deeper to uncover the root causes of the individual’s autoimmune response.
When you look at the dysregulation of the immune system that occurs in autoimmunity, we know that there are different systems involved in the targeting of tissue for destruction. Autoimmunity is a multi-variant process and the goal should be to calm down the autoimmunity, specifically the immune response against self-tissue.
There are several innate regulating systems of immune function that begin to dysregulate in autoimmunity. At Functional Health & Wellness, our goal is to modulate the autoimmunity by identifying the individual triggers.
