Autoimmunity Is Preventable

Even if you are genetically prone to it, autoimmunity is preventable. If you have already been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, your immune system is malfunctioning and your body is mistakenly attacking your body’s healthy cells, tissues, and organs.

This can lead to various other health issues and many annoying or even debilitating symptoms, including but no limited to:

  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Ashes
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Hair loss
  • Impaired vision
  • Abdominal pain and discomfort
  • Frequent visits to the bathroom

With one autoimmune condition, you are at risk for another one, and we understand that can be scary. You may be wondering – What is driving it? How did your signaling of the immune system get confused?

There Is Hope, and Full Remission Is Absolutely Possible

The key is casting a wide net across a broad spectrum of contributing factors that are causing symptoms and inflammation. And knowing you have a solid plan in place. At Fit Logic Functional Medicine, we don’t believe that your body has a deficiency of some kind of pharmaceutical drug, even though in certain cases it may help even temporarily. This is not the answer, and you do not have to “just live with it.” Autoimmunity is multifactorial and different for each individual. We help you to replace what is missing and give your body what it needs to function its best and to:

  • Improve your quality of life,
  • Lower your risk of further disease
  • Get you to remission (yes, it is absolutely possible and we see it a lot!)

There is a strong association of autoimmunity with leaky gut, and we spend time helping you improve and optimize your gut health with expert guidance. Even an imbalance of good and bad gut bacteria (dysbiosis) can be a cause of leaky gut and lead to autoimmune disease.

Knowing which dietary and lifestyle changes to make can be confusing and frustrating. We will meet you where you are, go at your pace, and clarifying what is recommended for you and providing education along the way. Sometimes making a simple modification can be life changing and relieve even the worst of symptoms.

At FLFM, you get a personal health blueprint to bring your body back into balance and with specific guidance to help you find your triggers. You will be able to recognize triggers and how to nip them in the bud to prevent a flare-up and keep you stabilized. This helps in improving and preventing autoimmunity.

Some of the most common Autoimmune diseases we see include:

  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s and Colitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Lupus
  • Graves’ disease

What causes autoimmunity can be a combination of genetics and environment; however a contributing factor is often vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. When your body is deficient or even on the lower end, it decreases your immune system’s ability to function properly causing inflammation and a decreased ability to remove toxins. Nutrient and vitamin infusions help to:

  • Support your immune system
  • Reduce inflammation quickly, and
  • Remove toxins from your body

Reducing inflammation and aiding your body in eliminating toxins can help tremendously in alleviating many severe symptoms.
