Functional Medicine For Autoimmune Diseases
Functional Medicine Treatments For Autoimmune Diseases
There are more than eighty conditions and diseases that are caused by the immune system attacking itself and the human body, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). These conditions are referred to as autoimmune diseases.
If you suffer from an autoimmune disorder, you may be a candidate for Regenerative Cell Therapy or for our Functional Medicine Treatments. Elite Integrated Medical‘s Medical investigational team will work with you to determine the best treatment options to help treat your symptoms from the root cause. Our patient funded studies use our advance knowledge on regenerative medicine to help relieve your symptoms.

Our medical clinics help patients suffering from a variety of Autoimmune conditions including:
Rheumatoid arthritis affects more than 1.5 million people in the United States. This autoimmune disease causes pain and inflammation in the joints. Over time, the joints deteriorate and destruction of the bones and cartilage in the joint occur. The patient’s mobility reduces and their quality of life decreases with this painful, chronic condition. We follow the stringent protocols and transfer your own cells and growth factors into the damaged joints and tissues to encourage healing.
Crohn’s Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and swelling to occur in the gastrointestinal tract. When a candidate is approved for treatment, they will undergo an outpatient procedure that may take several hours. During this procedure, regenerative cells will be harvested, processed and reintroduced into the gastrointestinal tract to help heal inflamed and damaged tissues.
This autoimmune disorder causes the body to create antibodies that attack the nervous system. When this occurs, the nervous system cannot properly communicate with your muscles. Regenerative cell therapy can help with a variety of symptoms, including muscle weakness. There are many studies, including those at our facility, on regenerative cell therapy research and Myasthenia Gravis.
Systemic lupus erythematosus is the most common form of Lupus. Lupus attacks the healthy tissues in the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, brain, heart and vascular system. The therapy involves harvesting your own cells. We then process them and reintroduce them in areas where inflammation and damage have occurred.
Autoimmune hepatitis causes the immune system to attack the cells in the liver which can lead to cirrhosis, scarring and even liver failure. Getting a proper diagnosis early can help prevent serious organ damage from occurring. We will harvest your regenerative cells and process them and then reintroduce them into the liver to help reverse the damage caused by autoimmune hepatitis.
Hashimoto’s disease causes the immune system to attack the thyroid gland and tissues. When this occurs, the thyroid’s ability to produce thyroid hormones will be reduced. This can cause hypothyroidism, which requires thyroid medication. We have numerous available functional medicine treatment options for Hashimoto’s Disease.
This is a rare autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack the cartilage in the body. There will be times of remission and then the patient will relapse. Our team will attempt to ease your system by collecting and reintroducing your regenerative cells into damaged areas of the body.
When a patient suffers from Graves’ disease, their thyroid becomes hyperactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced. Regenerative cell treatment may be an effective treatment option for this autoimmune disease.
Are You Suffering With Any Of These Symptoms?

At Elite Integrated Medical, we specialize in comprehensive testing and evaluation for Hashimoto’s Disease as well as the many other variations of thyroid and autoimmune diseases, including specialized testing of antibodies and the known markers that signal a possible autoimmune disorder, along with a state-of-the-art computer analysis of your thyroid tissue levels and your basal metabolic rate (your metabolism). These tests can help us determine if you are suffering from Hashimoto’s Disease or any related autoimmune disorder, and can help us get you off the thyroid rollercoaster and back on the road to good health.
By proactively detecting and treating Hashimoto’s disease early in patients who show any level of antibodies, it is now possible to stop the progression of the disease, save the thyroid from further damage, and save the patient from development of hypothyroidism (and a life-long requirement of potentially dangerous medications!).
In addition to treating our Hashimoto’s disease patients with a safe and effective thyroid hormone replacement therapy, there are a number of other medical and nutritional protocols that have also been proven to have a positive impact on the disease. Our integrated functional medicine team has had great success treating Hashimoto’s with dietary modifications, “gut” repair, nutrition, and stress reduction.
After complete and thorough testing across multiple areas of related autoimmune diseases and disorders, our medical team will work hand in hand with you to develop a completely customized treatment plan that will:
(1) calm down the immune attack,
(2) lower antibodies, and
(3) get you feeling better for the long run.
As these treatments are able to return the thyroid back to normal operation, you’ll begin to experience positive physical and biochemical improvements in your energy, a boost in your metabolism (leading to weight loss), cognitive/brain function & clarity, and a return to normal sexual and reproductive functions.
