Autoimmune Disease

What is it?

While autoimmune disease can affect almost any tissue, and therefore comes in many various forms, all these conditions share a singular characteristic. By definition, autoimmune disease describes illnesses in which the body produces antibodies to itself. The immune system directs its attack at a particular part of the body, such as the pancreas in Type I Diabetes or the nervous system in Multiple Sclerosis, but the condition is systemic, meaning it has an impact on the whole body.

And patients with one autoimmune diagnosis are often susceptible to other autoimmune diagnoses throughout the course of their lives because the body learns to attack itself in multiple locations. These complex illnesses require a multidisciplinary approach and at Bambú Clinic, we incorporate many forms of analysis and treatment to help patients with autoimmune diagnoses achieve optimal wellness.

Examples of autoimmune diseases that we can treat atBambú: Hashimoto’s (thyroid), Grave’s (thyroid), Multiple Sclerosis (nerves), Crohn’s (intestines), Ulcerative Colitis (intestines), Rheumatoid Arthritis (joints), Celiac disease (intestines), Type 1 diabetes (pancreas), Alopecia areata (skin), Psoriasis (skin) and Psoriatic arthritis (joints), Lupus (skin, joints, kidney), Pernicious Anemia (stomach lining), Vasculitis/Temporal Arteritis (arteries).

What causes it?

Though there is no definitive cause of autoimmune disease, there are many factors that can contribute to its development including: immunological, digestive & dietary, lifestyle, neurological, hormonal, genetic, toxicity and social/emotional.

Bambú Clinic offers a wide array of therapeutic modalities to address all of the factors involved in an autoimmune condition.

Your treatment plan may involve some or all of the following:

  • acupuncture
  • lab testing
  • imaging (both conventional and functional)
  • IV therapy
  • low dose naltrexone
  • other conventional medications or hormone replacement, if necessary to preserve tissue and joint health and to minimize autoimmune inflammation
