Do you have an autoimmune disorder and are you experiencing symptoms of inflammation and fatigue? Or have you been in pain for quite some time and are ready to get back to feeling better? An autoimmune disorder therapy session with us might be just what you need for overall wellness. Here’s what to know about autoimmune disorder therapies.
Autoimmune disorders occur when your body’s immune system, the first line of defense against bacteria and viruses, turns on itself and cannot distinguish between healthy tissue and harmful antigens. As a result, autoimmune disorders can destroy body tissue, cause inflammation in the skin, joints, and muscles, and change the functioning of organs.
Autoimmune disorders are often characterized by their periods of flare ups—when symptoms are most intense and severe—followed by periods of remission. Over 80 types of autoimmune disorders exist, including:

If you’ve never been to an autoimmune disorder therapy session, you might be wondering what to expect during your appointment. A certified physician at Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine will begin by asking you a comprehensive set of questions to determine your current health, symptoms, as well as emotional and mental well-being. From there, a treatment will be created that’s individual to you and can include one or several forms of functional medicine such as yoga, acupuncture, and integrative diet plans. The number of therapy sessions recommended will vary based on the severity and occurrence of your symptoms, but most patients find that an increase in wellness is experienced through regular therapy.
