Vibrant-America Immune Testing Available

The immune system is constantly keeping the body safe from harm and aware of its surroundings. The immune system is intimately connected with the nervous system and is often the root cause behind many psychiatric and mood disorders. The brain-gut connection is primarily a highway of communication between the largest internal immune organs (stomach, small and large intestines) and the brain. The immune system can also loose its ability to identify its own self; resulting in an autoimmune condition.

Assessing the immune system is a critical component to a holistic medical approach. A new lab company offers affordable immune testing for those with insurance. Vibrant-America is a new lab that we are provide through our clinic that bills insurance with a very reasonable lowest out-of-pocket cost to patients.

Once you have diagnosed yourself with an autoimmune condition, there are options to manage the condition and try and identify root causation. Many autoimmune conditions stem from gastrointestinal dysbiosis combined with genetic predispositions. Other times a viral or other infection may stimulate the onset.

Holistic treatments include addressing food allergies/ sensitivities and gut bacterial imbalances. New treatments like Low Dose Naltrexone offer alternatives to immunosuppression and steroids. Once testing identifies an issues, personalized and targeted support may provide improvement in quality of life, stop progression or possibly reverse the condition.
