Autoimmune Diseases

In the last two decades, the significance of the immune system and its role in disease has become more apparent. Conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis/Crohn’s disease, and psoriasis are a few examples of autoimmune diseases.

Cortisone and other immune suppressants has been the mainstay of conventional therapy. More and more patients are choosing not to use these aggressive and side effect producing drugs and are searching for alternative treatments for autoimmune problems.

At KNC, assessment is first performed which may include any of the diagnostic services/tests available. Treatment is dependent on the cause of the illness and is usually based on a combination therapy. Most autoimmune diseases can be helped utilizing natural medicine approaches.
