How do I know if I have an autoimmune disease?
The early symptoms of many autoimmune diseases are very similar, such as:
swelling and redness
numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
Autoimmune & Thyroid Treatment
Alternative treatment for autoimmune and thyroid conditions can provide relief for a variety of symptoms related to these chronic disorders. Used alone or as a complement to traditional Western medicine treatments, integrative therapies address the underlying cause of autoimmune thyroid disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
In Salt Lake City, Utah, Rising Health Specialty Clinic assists patients with hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and other related disorders, without the side effects and potential risks of prescription medications or invasive procedures.
Understanding Autoimmune & Thyroid Disease
Although these conditions affect tens of millions of Americans, many sufferers are unaware of the symptoms and, unfortunately, often go undiagnosed.
Autoimmune disorders result when the immune system attacks your own body. Thyroid disorders – including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism – occur when a portion of the endocrine malfunctions, resulting in either the over- or under-production of hormones that control metabolism, regulate body temperature, mood, breathing and heart rate.
Some disorders, including Hashimoto’s disease and Grave’s disease, are forms of autoimmune thyroid disorder. Sufferers experience a wide range of symptoms that can include unexplained weight gain (or loss), fatigue, muscle and joint aches, hair loss, memory loss, sensitivity to cold, depression and more.
Alternative Treatment for Thyroid & Autoimmune Disorders
Traditional Western medicine treatments are not always effective for treating these troublesome conditions. Often, medical doctors do not conduct a full blood panel and, consequently, fail to fully identify the scope of the problem. And, as with many types of Western medicine therapies, traditional practitioners tend to only treat the symptoms of the problem, rather than looking for – and addressing – the underlying cause or causes of the disorder.
Integrative medicine specialists take a variety of factors into consideration when diagnosing thyroid and autoimmune disorders and go beyond recommending surgery or prescribing potentially harmful medications.
When you seek a more holistic approach to your treatment, you can rest assured that the causes of your challenges will be addressed. This helps ensure the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses factors such as diet and lifestyle.
