Treating Autoimmunity With Wisdom

Treating autoimmunity with conventional medicine can feel like a nightmare. Return to a common sense approach that treats autoimmunity at the root cause.

There are 80 autoimmune diagnoses. We treat most of them. The most common are:

  • Celiacs Disease
  • Addison’s Disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Graves Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Sjogren Syndrom
  • Lupus

Symptoms of Autoimmunity

Autoimmune symptoms can be confusing and seem disconnected. Because autoimmunity is a result of excess inflammatory chemicals in the blood, symptoms can appear all over the body.

Primary Symptoms:

  • Skin Breakouts
  • Swolen Glands
  • Strange Body Pains
  • Rashes
  • Reoccuring Fevers
  • Hair Loss
  • Digestive Issues

Secondary Symptoms:

  • Muscle Weakness
  • Migraines
  • Nausea
  • Memory Loss
  • Dry eyes and mouth
  • Numbness & Tingling
  • Skin Breakouts
  • Rapid Heartbeat

The Root Cause of

Autoimmunity happens when the immune system becomes overwhelmed, creating antibodies that accidentally attack our own body tissues. The real question is, why?

Inflammation is a normally occurring process in the body. However, with excess inflammation over a long period of time, the immune system becomes overwhelmed and confused. It begins attacking the body tissues instead of real invaders like viruses and bacteria.

The good news is, almost all sources of inflammation are lifestyle related, and can be reversed without medication.

You can think of this like a glass of water...

How Autoimmunity Develops

The Autoimmune

Autoimmunity is not a black-and-white genetic diagnosis. It’s also not a disease that you can “kill.” Autoimmunity is the result of excess inflammation over long periods of time, and you can move up and down the spectrum of autoimmunity based on the inflammatory markers in your blood.

Lower-severity autoimmune conditions are correlated with lower overall inflammation, whereas more severe autoimmune conditions indicate higher levels of inflammation. You can move up and down that spectrum depending on your overall inflammation, which is why symptoms of autoimmune seem to mysteriously disappear and reappear. It’s also why if you have one autoimmune diagnosis, you are 2-3x more likely to receive a second(1).


Treating Inflammation:
A Common Sense Approach
Wisdom doctors treat autoimmunity primarily by reducing inflammation, and regulating the immune system. This is a fundamentally different approach than conventional medicine, which typically ignores the lifestyle factors of inflammation, and seeks to suppress the immune system.

We start by measuring inflammation by measuring C-reactive protein, IgA, homocysteine, and sedimentation rate through a simple blood test. After we get base inflammation rates, we help you identify the major sources of inflammation through an in-depth health questionnaire.

Once we reduce your inflammatory markers, our doctors also help you regulate the immune system. This is often done through advanced, individualized supplementation that target your specific issues. It’s crucial to take an individualized approach to supplementation for immunity, rather than blasting it with over-the-counter products.
Lower Inflammation, Reduce Autoimmunity
1. Hidden Food Sensitivities
Some food allergies create immediate, intense bodily reactions such as a severe peanut allergy. However, most people live with food sensitivities that go unnoticed. These are lower-grade immune reactions that often don’t occur for hours or days after you eat, making them difficult to detect. Fortunately, we can now run advanced tests for food sensitivity if you suspect you have one.
