Natural Treatments for Immunological Disorders
Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from a form of autoimmune disease today. Several million of them live within driving distance from our Houston facility in the Woodlands, and Texas suburbs. Generally, when it comes to autoimmune disorders, many traditional doctors only treat the symptoms of the illness. Even when the underlying condition is identified, conventional treatments frequently fail to provide a cure.
Internal Healing & Wellness MD prefers to treat autoimmune disorders with a comprehensive approach using Functional Medicine, rather than relying on medications that further weaken the immune system. When designing treatment programs for our patients, we make every effort to provide a thorough and personalized approach. Some of the options that have proven to be successful include:
Shifting to an Anti-inflammatory Diet
Inflammation is one of the primary causes of autoimmune diseases, and it is also one of the most common symptoms. Anti-inflammatory foods, such as organic greens and fruits, leafy vegetables, grass-fed cattle, and healthy oils (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil), among others, can help you avoid this condition. We also recommend avoiding highly processed foods, as well as trans-fat, sugar substitutes, refined carbs, genetically modified products, gluten, and dairy, all of which have been associated with inflation.
Allowing your Gut to Heal and Improve
If your stomach and microbiome are not healthy, changing your diet will not make much of a difference. Keep in mind that your digestive system is one of your most important immune barriers, and it requires regular care to work properly. A "leaky gut" condition, for example occurs when your digestive tract becomes permeable, enabling bacteria and even undigested food to enter your bloodstream. This can eventually develop into an autoimmune disease. To help in the recovery of your abdomen and intestines, Functional Medicine doctors recommend consuming probiotic strains and probiotics to replenish your stomach with good bacteria. Eating collagen-rich meals, such as bone broth, can also provide your body with the components it requires to heal your intestinal lining.
Check for Food Sensitivities
The benefits of consulting a physician with Functional Medicine training is that they will frequently address autoimmune problems by testing for food allergies such as celiac and other inflammation-causing factors right away. They are more likely to look into mold toxicity, heavy metal anomalies, and other diseases that conventional doctors overlook.
Incorporate Exercise, Rest, and Stress Management into your Daily Lives
Because regular exercise is so effective at reducing inflammation, it's usually one of the first things we recommend to our patients. Even basic activity can have significant benefits on physical and mental health, particularly when it comes to stress management. Prolonged periods of stress have been linked to inflammation and autoimmune diseases; it also causes damage to your body in a variety of ways. Our Functional Medicine doctors at our center located in Houston and The Woodlands, are committed to showing you how to regulate your stress levels and overcome any depression or anxiety that could happen as a result. We specifically emphasize on relaxation and meditation, because if you give your body enough time to heal, you will be surprised at the results.
Aside from prebiotics, there are a number of medications that can help with gut repair and overall immune system strength. To treat such issues, it is important for us at Internal Healing and Wellness MD, Houston, to use a Functional and Holistic medicinal approach. Here is a selection of some immunization supplements:
- Vitamin D
- Fish oil
- Vitamin C
If you feel you may be suffering from an autoimmune condition, it is recommended you start taking these vitamins right now. You might be surprised at how quickly your condition will improve.
