STOP YOUR SUFFERING with Autoimmune Disorders


Autoimmune Disorder Symptoms

Autoimmune Disorders Houston TX
Autoimmune means “immunity against the self.” Your body’s immune system is designed to protect you from disease and infection. However, if you have an autoimmune disorder, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. This process can impact many parts of your body. There are over 80 different types of autoimmune disorders, and some may even overlap. The most common types include the following:

  • Addison’s disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Celiac disease
  • Pernicious anemia
  • Scleroderma
  • Graves’ disease
  • Psoriasis
  • Sjögren’s syndrome
  • Hashimoto’s disease
  • Raynaud’s Phenomenon
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Reactive arthritis
  • Type 1 diabetes

Living with autoimmune disorders or watching a loved one suffer from autoimmune disorders can be a long, painful process. It is extremely important to both manage the symptoms while simultaneously determining the cause. Although the prevalent symptoms of autoimmune disorders can be similar, the root causes of autoimmune responses vary from patient to patient. Heavy metal toxicity, leaky gut, Candida overgrowth, food allergies, adrenal function and thyroid are some of the common factors with autoimmune disorders. We conduct meticulous evaluations for each patient and recommend a personalized and appropriate treatment plan. Some of our treatments for autoimmune are:

  • Nutritional IV Therapy
  • Oral Supplements
  • Chelation
  • Detoxification

Because many autoimmune diseases have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to diagnose one from another without specific and in-depth testing. The following are common symptoms of autoimmune diseases (please note that this is not an exhaustive list of symptoms):

  • Joint pain, muscle pain or weakness or a tremor
  • Abdominal pain, diarrhea
  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Heat intolerance
  • Hair loss
  • Constant fatigue
  • Cold intolerance
  • Recurrent rashes or hives
  • Sun sensitivity
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Dry eyes, mouth, or skin

If you suspect that you have an autoimmune disorder from the symptoms above or from other symptoms that you have been facing, please contact Houston Health and Wellness. We offer an integrated and holistic approach to treating patients with autoimmune disorders to find a successful and effective treatment as a long-term solution.

Autoimmune Disorder Treatment

Houston Health and Wellness is here to help patients with autoimmune disorders gain maximum optimal health. Conventional doctors only treat the symptoms of autoimmune diseases and neglect to use an in-depth approach to find the root causes. Often, they prescribe medications such as anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, or immunosuppressants which fail to address the underlying causes of the autoimmune disorder, and which can inevitably make an autoimmune disorder worse in the long-term.

The medical specialists at Houston Health and Wellness use a multi-faceted approach to understand your adverse reactions to food allergies, sensitivities, and toxins, how family medical history plays a part in your disorder, and how nutritional and environmental factors play a role. With more than 80% of your immune system found in the gut, it is common for an infection or leaky gut syndrome to worsen the effects of an autoimmune disorder and interfere with healing. We take all of this into account when evaluating and treating our patients with autoimmune disease. Please contact Houston Health and Wellness today to schedule an appointment.
