As traditional medicine has allowed humankind to live longer, often “healthier” lives, there has been a rise in autoimmune conditions in recent decades. It is believed that autoimmune conditions are caused by a number of factors, including genetics, lifestyle choices and environmental factors. At Rose Canyon Health & Wellness, we take a natural approach to autoimmune disease treatment in Mesa, Arizona. We believe that addressing the root cause of the autoimmune condition is better than simply masking the symptoms and want to actually heal those who visit our practice.
What Is An Autoimmune Disease?
An autoimmune disease is a condition which causes a patient’s immune system to attack part of their body. Different autoimmune diseases can cause damage to different parts of the body, including the skin, tissues, organs and more. The body does not understand that it is not attacking an invader but is, in fact, attacking healthy, normal tissue. Based upon the specific autoimmune condition and the damage it is causing, symptoms can vary.
Common Mesa Autoimmune Conditions
When it comes to autoimmune conditions, there are actually quite a few. However, at Rose Canyon Health & Wellness, these are the most common ones we treat:
Rheumatoid arthritis causes the immune system to attack the joints, causing inflammation, swelling and pain.
Lupus causes the immune system to attack various tissues within the body, commonly affecting the joints, lungs, blood cells, nerves and kidneys.
Inflammatory bowel disease (including ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease) causes the immune system to attack the lining of the intestines.
