Autoimmune disease is on the rise. To make matters worse there are many obstacles to combating autoimmune disease.
According to The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA), there are approximately 50 million Americans suffering from autoimmune diseases. That equates to 20 percent of the population! This is a shocking statistic.
With over 100 known autoimmune diseases today, autoimmunity has become a major chronic health problem and diagnosis for these diseases are difficult, research is limited, and conventional treatment is often limited to managing symptoms.
Many of the common obstacles found in diagnosing, researching, and treating autoimmune diseases include:
-Symptoms can affect several organ systems making it difficult to assign the proper specialists.
-Many of these diseases manifest differently depending on the individual.
-Often the disease is not completely recognizable until it has become acute.
-Initially, the symptoms of these diseases are usually nonspecific and sporadic.
-Research is generally disease-specific and lacks information-sharing among different autoimmune conditions.
-Immunosuppressants are the common measure of treatment for autoimmunity, which can lead to long-term side effects and ignore the root of the disease.
-Patients are expected to remain on medication to stay well without many alternative options.
There are steps one with autoimmune disease can take that they may be completely unaware of. Steps they may well help to put their autoimmune disease into remission and prevent many of the potential complications associated with many autoimmune diseases. There is a functional approach that can and should be incorporated into managing any disease particularly an autoimmune disease. For that reason, I hope you will join me for my upcoming webinar, Combat Autoimmune Disease By Understanding the Triggers. During this live event I will share with you strategies to overcome these obstacles with the help of functional medicine.
Functional medicine serves as a combination of conventional medicine and complementary healthcare and is guided by the principles of individualized attention, holistic healing, and long term treatment.
Functional medicine focuses on:
-The individuality of each patient, based on their genetics, environment, and unique health history.
-A patient-centered approach, rather than simply treating the symptoms of the disease.
-The identification of health as a dynamic balance of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being, rather than just the absence of disease.
-The complex mix of interactions of nutrition, physical activity, organ integrity, and stress management.
-A plethora of laboratory testing and diagnostic measures to ensure comprehensive care.
-An integrative, research-based method of healthcare combining both Western and Eastern medical practices.
-Prevention and treatment of complex, chronic conditions that need specialized care.
