Pain & Autoimmunity

Autoimmune Conditions

Acute Injuries & Inflammation

Acute musculoskeletal injuries, low back pain, headaches, and general inflammation can have significant impact on daily functioning and well-being.  They may also lead to more chronic conditions if not treated appropriately.  Pain management focuses on treating the underlying tissue damage and managing symptoms with acupuncture, natural anti-inflammatories, dietary and/or orthomolecular recommendations.  Treatments are customized to meet your health needs, and may also address other bodily systems involved in pain management, such as the mind-body connection, gut health, sleep, and more.  

Chronic Pain

Is chronic pain affecting your ability to live a happy, purposeful life?  Chronic pain has been linked to dysfunctional bodily systems, including infection, autoimmunity, dysbiosis, nutritional deficiencies, physical and emotional trauma, improper body mechanics, hormones, bone/joint diseases, neuromuscular dysfunction, environmental exposures, and more.  From neuropathy to endometriosis or bone and joint disease, we investigate the root of your pain and will address the possibility of dysfunctional factors during a thorough medical intake. Treatments are focused on addressing the root cause, identifying and removing aggravating factors, and managing your symptoms naturally. 

Autoimmunity

Autoimmune conditions arise when the immune system begins to attack the body rather than protect and heal it. Our immune system is meant to fight off invading pathogens, but can become dysfunctional when chronic stress, environmental, and other triggers influence it. Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Graves' disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, type I diabetes, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus have well-established autoimmune causes.  With over 80 known autoimmune conditions affecting millions of individuals, significant research into root causes, triggers, and treatments are being investigated.  We will use this information to identify your root cause and triggers, treat your symptoms, and uncover your path to better health.
