Alternative Autoimmune Disease Treatment

Autoimmune disease treatment is required by so many patients. It is estimated that approximately 23.5 million Americans are living with autoimmune disease (AD), and yet many people are unaware of these underlying conditions affecting their health. Proper diagnosis and treatment can be critical in managing these disorders. Autoimmune disorders are illnesses that occur when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. There are more than 80 different AD’s, and they can affect any part of the body. Symptoms vary depending on the disease and may include fatigue, pain, joint inflammation, and skin rashes.

The immune system is a complex network of cells, messenger systems, and components that normally work to defend the body and eliminate infections caused by bacteria, viruses and other invaders. Normally, the immune system can differentiate tissue that belongs to the body from tissue from a different source. However, if an individual has an autoimmune disorder, the immune system mistakenly attacks itself on a large scale, targeting the cells, tissues and organs of the individual’s own body.

Alternative Autoimmune Disease Treatment

Sunridge Medical treats autoimmune diseases with medical protocols that address both the symptoms and the underlying cause of the disease. Through specialized testing Sunridge doctors will identify chronic infections and environmental toxins that are known to both cause and promote autoimmune disorders. Patients with autoimmune disorders that follow Sunridge autoimmune disease treatments experience less pain and inflammation increasing their mobility, sleep and mood.

 

More Than One Autoimmune Disease

Did you know that autoimmune disorders are one of the most common health conditions in the United States? While people often think of AD as one-dimensional conditions, the truth is that many people have more than one autoimmune disorder. This can make diagnosing and treating these diseases particularly challenging for both patients and doctors.  According to a study published in the Journal on Lupus, almost two-thirds of people with one autoimmune disorder also have another AI disease. Developing rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune thyroiditis are the most common autoimmune diseases found as the double autoimmune disorder issues.

Patients dealing with more than one autoimmune disease are not alone. There is support and with Sunridge Medical, patients find doctors who understand their condition and can help bring healing.

 

Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome

Multiple autoimmune syndrome, is the combined occurrence of three or more autoimmune diseases. This syndrome effects around twenty-five percent (25%) of patients with autoimmune disorders. Although this impact is not immediate and takes place over time, left improperly treated patients have a likelihood of developing other autoimmune diseases.
There are three classifications for Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome predicated on the prevalence of certain conditions occurring together.

Type 1 Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome: myasthenia gravis, thymoma, polymyositis and giant cell myocarditis.

Type 2 Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome: Sjögren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, primary biliary cirrhosis, scleroderma and autoimmune thyroid disease.
Type 3 Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome: autoimmune thyroid disease, myasthenia gravis and/or thymoma, Sjögren’s syndrome, pernicious anemia, idiopathic thrombopenic purpura, Addison’s disease, type 1 diabetes mellitus, vitiligo, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, systemic lupus erythematosus, dermatitis herpetiformis.

 

Genetics and Autoimmune Disorders

Genetics can predispose a person to a certain autoimmune disorders, something in the environment modifies those genes to cause or potentiate the problem.

Genes associated with autoimmune diseases pass on the opportunity for autoimmunity not the disease itself. For example, one family member with familial autoimmunity may have lupus and another may suffer with rheumatoid arthritis expressing their familiar autoimmunity in two separate diseases but with the same genetic origin.  This can add to the confusion of autoimmune disorders and slow down a patient seeking treatment. There is still much research to be done on autoimmune disorders, but at Sunridge we know there is no single solution to each autoimmune disorder.  We treat the individual separately and individually – a specialty of Sunridge Medical.

 

Autoimmune Disease Treatment

Autoimmune disorders include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. While the cause of autoimmune disease is not fully understood, there are many things that can be done to reduce the risk of developing the disease. Some of these include supporting the immune system, eating a well-balanced anti-inflammation diet rich in fruits and vegetables, high-fiber foods, fish, and omega-3 oils. Movement including regular exercise, avoiding smoke and abstaining or limiting alcohol consumption reduce risk.

By taking steps to prevent autoimmune disorders, you can improve your overall health and quality of life. There are also several treatments available for those who already have an autoimmune condition. Managing chronic infections along with limiting environmental toxins, like heavy metals, may also decrease your risk of developing autoimmune disorders.
