Functional medicine provides a deeper understanding of what may have gone wrong when developing your autoimmune process. To have an autoimmune disease, it is not only related to genetics. However, one may have a genetic susceptibility, an environmental trigger, and dysfunctional gut health. Often times one autoimmune condition is followed by additional autoimmune conditions. Autoimmune conditions have become more and more prevalent in our society.
We need to think differently when approaching such conditions. Dr. Bantock will listen, understand how your story unfolds, and gain more of an understanding of the imbalances that in are in your body manifesting as an autoimmune disease.
Hashimotos (Thyroid) Disease, Celiac Disease, Crohn’s, Type 1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and many more leave people feeling lonely with very few options to help them once they are diagnosed. These are are immune conditions, and only looking at the organ itself, rather than the entire dysfunctional immune system may be the wrong approach. Dr. Bantock addresses the dysfunctional immune system along with other organ systems in order to allow your body’s healing processes to be unleashed.
