The primary goal at LifeWorks Integrative Health is to restore immune system balance, but also support a patients overall health. We offer one of the most comprehensive and successful programs available for restoring health and vitality when autoimmune conditions are present.

What Is An Autoimmune Disease?

Autoimmune conditions are diseases of chronic inflammation. When the body is chronically and systemically inflamed, it sends off an immune response, and when out of control, it ends up attacking your own bodies’ tissues.

Autoimmune disease is the THIRD largest category of disease in the United States behind heart disease and cancer. There are more than 80 autoimmune diseases and they affect over 50 million Americans.

Your body’s immune system is responsible for your overall health. It is responsible for fighting off cancers, viruses, toxins, and the more common things like colds. Your body’s response even to something a small as a paper cut relies on a properly functioning immune system as well as the central nervous system.

Immune system disorders can hinder your body’s ability to properly handle a non-threatening foreign substance such as pet dander or pollen. When your body’s immune system is not functioning properly it can overreact.

There are over 80 known types of autoimmune diseases, spanning from chronic fatigue syndrome, allergic asthma and arthritis to rare ones that are hard to pronounce like Wegener’s granulomatosis and Goodpasture’s syndrome.

The Role of Functional Medicine

Functional medicine can be a fantastic supportive treatment for those who suffer from autoimmune disorders. The treatment goals for most autoimmune diseases include reduction of symptoms, control the autoimmune response and to maintain the body’s ability to fight disease. Immunity is controlled by the brain stem which is protected and encased by the upper cervical spine. Adjustments relieve the pressure on the nervous system caused by misalignments in the spine.

Every cell, organ and tissue in your body is controlled by the nervous system, so relieving the pressure on the nervous system promotes better health and function of those cells, organs and tissues. In short, adjustments allow your body to function at it’s fullest potential. Patients with autoimmune diseases often relate improvement in symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain and muscle aches.

With dietary alterations and consistent functional medicine care, patients have noticed a marked decrease in inflammation caused by autoimmunity.
