Autoimmune Health

Support your body’s first line of defense.

Do You Trust Your Immune System?

We trust our immune systems to regulate themselves and consistently protect our bodies from viruses and diseases. But sometimes the strength of our own immune system backfires and begins to work against our bodies, not for them.

Autoimmune issues arise when our immune systems stop defending our bodies from outside threats and start attacking our own cells, instead.

There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disorders:

Genetics, environmental exposure, and ethnicity all seem to contribute to the onset of autoimmune issues. Researchers are still studying how and why these conditions catalyze the body, but these conditions are notoriously difficult to diagnose, leaving many patients (especially women) to navigate their symptoms on their own.

Examples: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriasis.

Examples: Hashimotos and Graves Disease

Examples: Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease

Example: Lupus

What Can You Expect From Treatment?

During your initial consultation your physician will evaluate your:

  • Symptoms
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Environment
  • Medical History

Then, your Hudson Life Care Team will administer blood work and comprehensive testing to get a clearer picture of your:

  • Immune system
  • Gut health
  • Autoantibody count
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Potential blood toxicities

Based on these results, your physician will determine if you need more advanced diagnostics to better understand:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Genetic risks

Following diagnostic testing, your practitioner will develop a personalized plan to get you back to feeling your best. This may include:
• Nutritional supplements
• Detoxification support
• Repair digestive function and healthy gut flora
• Rebalancing hormones
• Replenish nutrient deficiencies
• Treat inflammation & enhance immune function
• Stress reduction therapies
• Advanced diagnostic testing
• Lifestyle & behavioral modification

Your physician will set up check-ins at regular intervals to learn about how your body is responding to prescribed supplements and lifestyle modifications.

During these check-ins you’ll be able to alter your original health goals (if needed) and moderate your treatment and supplement plans.

Common Indicators of Autoimmune Disorders

Living with Chronic Pain

The number of people living the chronic pain and discomfort brought on by autoimmune disorders is on the incline and 80% of people with autoimmune disorders are women.

It’s tempting to downplay fatigue and pain as passing annoyances, but persistent symptoms mean your body is trying to tell you that something is not quite right.
