Holistic Clinical Immunology
A Different Approach is a Holistic Approach
Immunology is a constantly changing branch of science. It was not until the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980's, that most of immunology's guiding pricipals were discovered. Today, it seems like immunology redefines itself every 5-years but the clinical application of immunology almost seems stuck in time.
Autoimmune disease has few conventional treatment options which typically consists of immunosuppression and symptom management. A holistic approach tries to accomplish these same goals, in the most natural approach possible, in addition to seeking out root causes behind the immune activation.
Natural Medicine of Stillwater uses a number of specialty labs to further investigate diagnose and manage autoimmune disease using both conventional and alternative lab markers. Additionally we also test for other aspects that impact the immune system including: Gut health (lactulose breath testing, stool analysis), neurotransmitter activity (urinary neurotransmitter testing), food sensitivities (IgG serum), infectious disease (Lyme disease, viruses, etc.) and genetic testing (saliva).
Treatments can vary greatly depending on the condition but they may include one or more of the following: herbal tinctures, IV nutrition, UV blood therapy, IV nutrition, low dose naltrexone, Nature-Throid, physiological doses of hydrocortisone, bio-identical hormones, herbal and prescriptive antibiotics and amino acids.
Your intestines contains 80% of your immune system!
You are not fully addressing autoimmunity if you still have: diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, cramping or gut pains.
Low Dose Naltrexone can be prescribed and supplied by a compounding pharmacy.
Neurotransmitter balancing improves quality of life by addressing mood disorders, sleep issues and fatigue commonly seen in autoimmune disease. A healthy nervous system is also essential for a healthy immune system.
