What are the most common autoimmune-related conditions?

Many conditions are either autoimmune in nature or related to your autoimmune system in some way. These conditions include:

Irritable bowel syndrome

Often abbreviated to IBS, this condition causes problems like abdominal pain, constipation, and bloating.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia causes chronic pain at many trigger points all over your body. It often causes chronic fatigue, brain fog, and poor sleep.

Low thyroid

Low thyroid can cause chronic fatigue, constipation, cold extremities, and hair loss along with many other symptoms.

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis can lead to an underactive thyroid gland. Effects can include weight gain, chronic fatigue, joint stiffness, muscle weakness, and increased sensitivity to cold temperatures.

Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. It can lead to decreased appetite, weight loss, abdominal pain, anemia, and slowed brain function.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis causes the tissue that makes up your uterine lining to grow in places outside of your uterus. It may cause severe pelvic pain, dramatically increased menstrual bleeding, and bloating.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis means you have low bone density. Although it doesn’t typically cause any symptoms, it makes your bones more susceptible to fracture and damage. Over time, you may notice that you’re shrinking if you have osteoporosis.

All of these conditions are either an autoimmune disease or are closely connected to your autoimmune system.

What is the goal of autoimmune treatment?

Autoimmune treatment at Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center has one simple goal: to determine the reasons you’re exhibiting the disease so you can learn how to avoid triggering them. The team works closely with you to meet this goal while helping you feel your very best.

How are proactive and retroactive treatment different?

Retroactive treatment comes after you’re having symptoms. Proactive treatment puts your main focus on prevention. The Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center team can treat autoimmune conditions in either phase through hormonal balance, detoxification, nutritional counseling, a personalized supplement plan, and many other customized treatments.

Many patients come in for treatment when they’re having serious symptoms, or after living with autoimmune conditions for many years. After customized proactive or retroactive treatment, many Wellness 1st patients go into remission and are able to enjoy a normal, healthy life again.
