Immune Dysfunction Q&A

What is immune dysfunction?

Immune dysfunction describes illnesses that affect your immune system. The team at Transformation Wellness Center uses holistic and alternative therapies to address common types of immune dysfunction, including autoimmune diseases like:

  • Lupus
  • Allergies
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

There are a number of issues that can trigger immune dysfunction and the Transformation Wellness Center team customizes a functional medicine treatment plan to address the underlying causes of your condition.

What causes immune dysfunction?

About 70% of your immune system is in your gut, so gut imbalances can have a significant impact on your immunologic health. Unknown gut microbial imbalances, infections, and overgrowth can stress out your immune system.

Stress, environmental pollutants, and toxins in the foods you eat also play a role in immune dysfunction. Toxins can hijack your immune system and trick it into attacking itself. These same toxins can also suppress your immune system.

In Western medicine, people receive prescription antibiotics all too often, which can destroy the healthy bacteria you need for your immune system to function efficiently. Transformation Wellness Center focuses on functional medicine therapies to identify what’s interfering with your immune system and help you eliminate it naturally.

How does functional medicine treat immune dysfunction?

Transformation Wellness Center offers comprehensive, holistic care to treat issues affecting your immune system.

They offer a variety of on-site tests that evaluate the function of your immune system, your hormone levels, and your overall gut health. Once they target the underlying cause of your immune dysfunction, they design a treatment plan to address it.

Strengthening your immunologic health typically involves dietary changes to remove harmful foods and additives from your diet. The team might also recommend detox services to make it easier for your body to eliminate heavy metals and other toxins from your body to revitalize the function of your immune system.

Transformation Wellness Center also offers resources to help you make lifestyle changes like increasing your daily exercise amounts and avoiding known toxins and pollutants that can trigger immune dysfunction.
