Autoimmune Disorders cover a broad range of conditions.
- Psoriasis / Eczema
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
- Diabetes Mellitus Type I
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Celiac Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
The common denominator in all these conditions is that the body attacks itself. The early signs of an autoimmune disorder vary and may present as fatigue, achy muscles, low-grade fever, among other symptoms.
The triggers of autoimmune disorders are associated with genetic mutations affecting the immune response, as well as detoxification. The genetic mutations cause an exaggerated immune response that is persistent and therefore, negatively affecting the individual's most susceptible organ based on his/her genetic background.
She developed the Franceschi Method™, a treatment protocol for neurological conditions, that combines different methodologies of treatment and continually measures that the patient is achieving maximum progress utilizing quantitative and neurological evaluations.
How do we treat these conditions?
It is well known that the first line of treatment consists of diminishing the immune response and/or to prescribe the hormone that the body is not producing appropriately, like insulin in the case of Type 1 Diabetes or thyroid hormone for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.
Traditional treatments are effective in most cases, however, do not improve long-term outcomes and involve dangerous side effects of medications.
The good news is that new treatments in Integrative Medicine are focused on identifying the cause of the disease to decrease the triggers. This novel approach aims to treat the underlying metabolic causes of autoimmunity, therefore resulting in the improvement of symptoms and alteration of the disease progression.
In our clinic, every patient receives a comprehensive evaluation to determine possible etiologies and an individualized treatment plan is administered based on the results. At WIN, we practice holistic medicine for autoimmune diseases. We encourage the patient to continue treatment with their doctor to avoid any acute deterioration. We will keep working as a team and encourage communication with your doctor as we identify the causes and continue to see improvements.
