Autoimmunity is the disorder of our time,
a combination of genetics and environmental exposure.
  
 

Your immune system is a miracle of nature, a complex web protecting you against millions of pathogens every day.  When those defenses are turned against your own cells, they can wreak havoc.   

 

Uncovering an auto-immune disease takes an average of 5 years and 5+ doctors.  (AADSA).  Case Integrative Health fast-forwards through that process and works with you to help stabilize and potentially reverse the

course of the disease.

Sample Treatment Plan 

  1. A deep dive initial consult that crosses all body systems to identify potential root causes of auto-immune reactions.

  2. Comprehensive functional labs to pinpoint elevated (and lowered) markers.

  3. Typically, providers will recommend a tailored diet to support healing (most of the immune system is generated in the gut, after all).

  4. Medications or peptides (as needed) to heal underlying issues 

  5. Follow-up lab work to track progress against minimizing symptoms and taming your auto-immune response.
