The key to understanding how True Health Medical treats and manages autoimmune conditions is understanding how they develop. All autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the body is over reactive and eventually begins to attack itself.
We have a very high success rate with many types of autoimmune diseases because we don’t focus on the symptoms. We step back and look at the big picture and come with a plan of attack that targets healing the gut or stomach, and then boosting the immune system. This allows us help the body restore function and work properly. Not every autoimmune condition on the planet starts with an unhealthy digestive system but if you have autoimmune issues we can almost guarantee that you are also dealing with some sort of digestive problem as well. This is why we start by addressing diet and focusing on other therapies that heal the lining of the stomach and intestines (mainly the small intestine). You see, your body is designed to attack bacteria, viruses and other unwanted things that get into your bloodstream. The most common way things get into the blood stream is through the digestive tract. Attacking the bad guys that make it into the blood is a normal and healthy process. We like it when the body goes to work and gets rid of all the bad things in the blood stream. The problem starts when too much gets through way too often. When this happens our bodies become on “high alert” all the time. Eventually over time the bodies immune system becomes too aggressive at going after the “bad guys” in the blood and surrounding tissues, and then the body starts to attack the healthy cells. When this happens in the pancreas we call it Diabetes. Diabetes is when they body attacks the cells that make insulin. This process can happen in many different areas of the body. The body will usually attack the weak link in the chain. So again if your pancreas is your “weak link” that is where we will see the body attack and eventually lead to diabetes. There are too many autoimmune conditions to list them all out. Just understand the concept and we can apply it to your specific diagnosis.
To finish this conversation it’s very important to help you realize that allergies are very similar to an autoimmune response. In fact, most allergies are simply a “mini autoimmune” response to something you breathed in or ate, and then your body over reacts. It’s really that simple. The process of reversing allergies is a lot less complicated than that of a full blown autoimmune disease but we still need to address diet, and help your brain recognize that it is over reacting to things that it does not need to react to. This was a very brief explanation. We would love to get to know you and what you are dealing with.
